  • [Bill ("Ronin")] stated that the domain registration for emperorshammer.org is coming due and will be renewed for a 3 years. Mark ("Mav") suggested using more social media and Bill ("Rapier") noted that the EH website is already linked via Facebook & Twitter.

  • The Attendees offered to assist with financial support for the EH. Considering the monthly fee totals only about $25, Bill ("Ronin") declined assistance.

Accordingly, all Attendees present voted unanimously to remove Matt ("Obraik") as an EH Trustee for 2012. If he wants to return at a later date, he can be reconsidered for Trusteeship.
  • Bill ("Rapier") is also going to appoint an Executive Officer (XO) who would likely be considered/nominated for Trustee in the next year or so.


6) New Business
  • Mark ("Mav") asked if the old TIE series games could be downloaded off a commercial server (i.e., Steam) or if the EH could host a server. A discussion ensued regarding probable licensing fees which would be required to be issued by LucasArts and that no public download of the old game program is available. The Attendees agreed to table this discussion until the next EH Trustees meeting in 2012.


7) Old Business - none


8) Fleet Report - Bill ("Rapier")
  • The Fleet stands at about 150-200 Members (mostly TIE Corps and DB) plus ~330 in the Fringe/SWG. Bill ("Rapier") and Bill ("Ronin") will coordinate recruiting in TOR when it goes live on 12/20/11.


9) Trustees Q&A
  • Mark ("Mav") suggested that the EH consider supporting Clone Wars in the Fringe Subgroup. Although the Attendees agreed that the game is intended for a younger audience, there was some discussion that this game platform may generate future recruits for the EH so we will keep an eye on the game's development.

4) State of the Fleet Report [John ("Cyric")]
  • John ("Cyric") gave a brief update on some recent developments and major changes in the EH including: recent roll-out of the new EH website and Member database, praise for the current Command Staff and their hard work, and merging of the EH Hammer's Fist and Directorate in the Dark Brotherhood due to lack of independent activity despite recent game platforms for their use.


5) EH Trademark - Registration #3868245 was officially registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office on 10/26/10 [Bill ("Ronin")]
