I. Foreword and Announcements



From the desk of the Fleet Commander


Attention Rebel Squadrons,

Congratulations on an excellent session as we wrap up Hammerfall: Aurora Rising. We saw excellent participation throughout the fleet and had several nights of intraclub competition. Well done!

As an aside, several administrative guidelines and general rules are being posted as Fleet Commander Directives over the next few weeks. Look for:
  • Interactive Tour of Duty and the Leaderboard
  • Squadron Commanding Officers
  • Task Force Leaders
  • The Operations Officer


It is our hope that these documents will help our membership understand the different roles of the command staff and help illuminate how the session scores are calculated.

Sincerely,
ADM Cyrel Vandroth
Rebel Squadrons Fleet Commander

Personnel Officer Announced


It came to our attention that we failed to announce the position of Personnel Officer being filled! MGN Kimiao Quinal has returned to active duty to help us manage awards and commendations for the RS. Task Force Leaders, if you have any ideas for new medals for your activities, get in touch with Kimiao.

As a reminder, any member of the RS may nominate anyone for a medal (Select ‘My Menu’ from the right hand Nav-Bar and then ‘Medal Nominations’ under ‘Tools’).

Command Staff Position Open!


We are still looking for someone interested in taking on the role of Operations Officer! It’s a critical role for the smooth operation of events in the RS, but we encourage anyone regardless of experience to apply. We’re happy to show you the ropes, all you have to bring to the table is a desire to improve the RS for everyone and a willingness to put in the effort.

Personnel Office - Commendations and Awards



Gavin “Skyhammer” Devearoux - You have done extremely well: your outstanding efforts in encouraging activity, your high score in the ITOD, simming, and overall Leaderboard Activity score of 346.6 points, and the top ITOD score: we have awarded you the RS Activity Top Gun, RS ITOD Top Gun, Citation of Victory x2, and an Iridium Spire.

Personnel Officer’s note: “The Iridium Spire’s award was due not only to your outstanding contribution for the month but the way in which you have attempted to get other people to participate and get involved with RS gaming, which is to your credit.”

FA Qatar had this to say: “For helping to get Armada up and running, helping teach people to play it, and always being around for various other gaming opportunities. Your continued efforts have helped increase both the RS's gaming platforms and overall activity across games/simming/writing/etc.”


Danny "David Lee Japan" Qatar a.k.a. Codyman- For your Mobile Gaming MVP and notable score on the Leaderboard, we award you a Citation of Victory and a Merit Commendation. Keep up the good work Fleet Admiral.

Personnel Officer’s note: “You continue to provide contributions in the form of the Star Wars mobile gaming, SWG, SW-minis and your report writing has been of a high standard that I have enjoyed catching up on.”

For being the only pilot to achieve a negative score in the most recent XWA mission yet still having the gumption to submit your report, we are awarding you a Violet Cluster. Whilst you did not have your greatest day in the cockpit, you made it back to fight another day. Better luck next time!

IV. Mission Briefing - Hammerfall - Phyrrhic Victory



-=Rebel Squadrons’ Command Complex, Tarsonis, 0800 Local Time=-

Already several hours into a status briefing, Fleet Admiral Vandroth rubbed his tired eyes before taking a swig out of a steaming mug of caf that’d been placed in front of him moments before. The news coming in from the front lines in Aurora was, shockingly, positive. With the invasion of Lithra over, and a massive Titan counterattack at Aurora repelled, it seemed that the invaders had decided to completely abandon the nebula, allowing the RS to begin the process of rebuilding the sector. Dozens of Titan support ships and a handful of capital ships had been caught by a battle group led by the [b]Prometheus II[/b] with nearly no RS casualties, cementing the RS’ hold of Lithra. Meanwhile, fighter squadrons led by elements of [b]Diamond[/b] and [b]Red Dagger[/b] successfully discovered and destroyed several picket fleets the Imperials were attempting to use to probe RS defenses. The combined efforts had cut off their ability to effectively mount offensive operations across the sector. Cyrel nodded approvingly.

“About bloody time. Now tha’ we cannae shift our focus from Aurora, we should be able to bolster tha’ defenses elsewhere.”

“Well,” Director Hawkins sighed as he looked down at his datapad, lamenting the fact that nobody ever let him finish before chiming in. “There are two complications, sir.”

“Oh?”

“First, we’ve completely dropped the ball in Minos. As they were leaving Aurora, pretty much every vessel we scared off instead of destroyed swung into our flank there, overwhelmed *everything*. It’s virtually gone. The only fortunate thing is that it was mostly mining, and we have a glut of resources; very few colonized worlds were lost, and we were able to get most of our assets out.”

“...Oh.”

“Second, we need to deal with a domestic issue. We now know what is up with our little mole issue. One of our operatives managed to raid a Titan COMM relay, and found information that potentially exonerates Ginofev. You’ve got it on your console.” Director Hawkins leaned back, tapping a command into his console to send the requisite files to the Fleet Commander.

“Well, ain’t tha’ a bitch…”


Past Results


Writing - Zealot - Minor Victory - At least one target eliminated this session.
Writing - Non-Zealot - Minor Victory - The Titan Forces around Lithra have been obliterated, and we no longer have to worry about reprisal attacks.
Simming - Stalemate - The ABG has managed to go blow for blow with Titan forces but no advantages were gained. (All ABG Side Projects and Businesses have their production reduced by 20% for one week.)
SWG - RS Loss - Titan takes the Minos Cluster
Mobile Gaming - Major Victory - Your assault team takes the ship with minor casualties, data cores provide great intel on Titan Fleet’s next potential moves, the ship is operable and taken.
X-Wing Miniatures - Major Victory - The RS overwhelmed and silenced Titan’s outer picket forces before they were able to retreat. A resounding victory with very minimal casualties on the RS side. Defending Aurora will be easier next session.
XWA - Minor Victory - Supply is interrupted enough to leave the Titan strike force open to an RS assault next session.
XVT - RS Loss - Next session, the RS is blind to EH movements in the Sluis sector.
EaW - Major Victory - Lithra's orbital AND ground defenses are bolstered against a potential Titan strike.

Hammerfall - Pyrrhic Victory



-=Republic-class Star Destroyer Reliant, Bethlamore Orbit=-

“...Therefore we will be dispatching commando squads to the suspected locations of the Titan’s resupply stations, in an attempt to positively identify and infiltrate one to get information on the whereabouts of the vessel herself.” The briefing officer continued, talking to the arrayed commandos of Sentinel Company.

“We’re being tasked with the most likely of these locations,” he activated a star chart, highlighting a red sector of space just off the Rimma Trade Route, south of Bethlamore. “A suspected station somewhere in this area of space. Alpha Squad,” he nodded at Nox Gammon, the squadron commander, “will be on point, with Beta on standby in case things get hairy.”

“Command is having us start to hunt her down, folks. Our mission over the next few months will be to pinpoint her location, choke her out of supplies, and eventually attack her full on. We’re the spearhead. We’ll identify her supply chain, and knock it out. I can’t stress this mission enough… if we can’t take out the Titan, we’re going to lose this war… Dismissed.”



Hammerfall - Pyrrhic Victory - Mission Briefing


Note: Objectives are due by 23:59 on January 28 and the session ends at 23:59 on January 31!


Leaderboard
Overseeing officer: ADM Cyrel Vandroth


As the RS’s war against the invading Imperial forces rages on, one truth remains constant: pilots keep track. Kills, bombers shot down, times they narrowly avoided certain death, all of them have some kind of running tally or another and for the best of the best, it’s a point of pride to be number one.


Participant Overall Objective: Record your activity as you participate in events throughout the Rebel Squadrons and with your fellow members!


Individual Scoring: Utilize the RS’s ‘Generic Reporter’ tool found on the left-hand nav bar to report activity. Any activity can be reported if it is with another RS member or against a ‘rival’ organization during the weekend brawls. You may also report solo activity if you are representing the Rebel Squadrons while broadcasting on Twitch, creating Youtube videos, or playing in a multiplayer game. Any activity may be reported for the minimum duration (15 minutes) with a single screenshot. For any duration greater than that, a pair of screenshots must be submitted that clearly display the start and stop times of participation.


Note: When reporting activity against a rival organization, set the ‘Number of RS Participants’ to 2 and use the ‘None’ member for your opponent.

Non-Zealot Fiction
Overseeing officer: IronMan


Task Force Republic Shield finds itself in a familiar sector, Aurora, a historic location in the annals of RS history. Titan’s vise-like grip has siphoned RS information and intelligence, which has provided a strategic advantage exploited by their forces. Now, under the direction of Fleet Commander, Cyrel Vandroth, Task Force Republic Shield moves to use that confiscated information as a smokescreen to lure Titan’s spies into a trap while they seek to patch up the damage.


Participant Overall Objective: Create and/or update your personal and/or character sheet on the RS Wiki page (rswiki.rebelsquadrons.org).
An example will be provided for you:
http://wiki.rebelsquadrons.org/index.php?title=Lucas_Benoit-Stark


Individual Scoring: In order to receive credit, the following criteria must be met:

BIographical Information on character (Photo if possible)
Backstory
Personality & Traits
Gear
Miscellaneous

Scoring will be given based on whether or not the categories were filled and if the information provided was adequately met. Each category will receive up to 2 points for a maximum of 10.


RS Defeat: With minimal to no effort in the restoration and recuperation of lost assets stolen from Titan, they manage to procure vital information on the next RS offensive, and develops the appropriate means to provide significant resistance.

Objective: Four unique individuals will EITHER create their own wiki in the RS Wiki page OR they will significantly modify their wiki page, bringing their events to current, meeting the criteria listed on the participant overall objective.


Minor RS Victory: Titan’s forces are repelled, but the RS fails to capitalize on the opening, and no group gains any advantage.
Objective: Six unique individuals will CREATE or MODIFY their own wiki in the RS wiki page, meeting the criteria as deemed on the participant overall objective.


Major RS Victory: Titan’s forces are repelled by sufficient escort, which provides the New Republic the opportunity to carry vital supplies that had once been stifled.
Objective:Eight unique individuals will create or modify their own wiki in the RS wiki page, meeting the criteria as deemed on the participant overall objective AND at least five different pages will have illustrations, artwork, or anything that depicts their character, their weaponry, and/or their vessel of choice.

Simming
Overseeing officer: Koah


Participant Overall Objective: RS members will participate in any sim or charsim run by a GM. Like most falls we are finding people taking a lull.
Our objective this session will be to get more sims rolling.

Based on the number of points earned by duration, simmers will receive a score of 1-10 based on individual participation lengths earned through simming or GMing a sim. (Highest receives 10, lowest receives 1, rest is divided accordingly). After participating in at least one sim, submit a report to this objective linking their activity profile with evidence they have participated in at least one sim (e.g. http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/test/member.php?pin=1865&date=46 ).


RS Defeat: Titan regains footing on the progress made by the ABG, creating mass confusion and befuddlement within the group. ((Characters may only upgrade if players post in fiction for the week or participate in a char sim which involves their character reacting to the tough faction hits.))

Objective: At least 20 hours of total sims reported. (( 3 characters + 1 GM count as 4 hours per every hour they participate. ))


Minor RS Victory: The ABG inches their way closer, intercepting vital Intel on the next Titan target. ((During one week, players can choose a single side project or business that uses a 1d100 and count that roll as a 90. Players can only use this before they choose to roll.))
Objective: 40 Hours of sims reported, 5 hours of character sims reported.


Major RS Victory: Vast amounts of intel are gained through the intercepting of Titan agents, captured by the ABG and met for interrogation. Through their information, the RS gains critical ground on an otherwise formidable foe. ((Income for all side projects and business are doubled for one week. Players must choose to apply this bonus before they begin rolling. This does not double losses from random rolls.))
Objective: 120 hours of simming reported. 20 hours of charsiming reported. At least 1 member successfully takes their aGM, GM, SGM tests or at least 10 unique players participate in a sim during the session.
