Gold Squadron Newsletter
June 16, 2013

=== CO's Ramble ===

We're well into Session XVI now, but there's still plenty of time left before the deadline. It's been moved to July 7th due to the 4th of July holiday in the US, giving us an extra week.

RS Activity of the Month this time around is writing-based. As Kirghy puts it: "Write a story about your character outside of the Star Wars universe". Full details are available here: and stories can be posted in the forum thread here:

Nicolai has already posted an intriguing story of his own, so be sure to stop by that thread and have a read!

Go for the Gold!

- CMDR Hermus Dogan

=== Squadron Status ===

No changes to report.

Gold currently has nine members.

=== Activity ===

Four members have reported activity thus far.

From the leader board:

Anubis - 10.8 MP points
Darth Gumbo - 45.6 MP points
InterlinkKnight - 1 SP point
Nicolai Ginofev - 28.8 MP points

Session ends July 7th.

=== Promotions ===

Two of our own are up for promotion this month. Congratulations to Anubis and InterlinkKnight, both promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander!

MAJ Anubis: For maintaining a strong, ongoing presence in simming activities you've earned a long overdue promotion. Congratulations, Lieutenant Commander!

MAJ InterlinkKnight: You've been the best XWA pilot the RS has for quite some time now, both in multiplayer and in the monthly ITOD missions. You've earned this, Interlink, so congratulations!

=== Medals ===

A few medals were awarded to members of Gold for the last session and for service in the RS:

Jun 2: BGN Ace Farlander - 5-Year Service Medal
Jun 2: MAJ InterlinkKnight - Iridium Spire
Jun 2: CMDR Hermus Dogan - RS Renegade Cup
Jun 2: MAJ InterlinkKnight - RS Intrepid Cup

Congrats, all!

=== Squadron Activity ===

Still no new special activities. If anyone has ideas, be sure to let me know!


Otherwise, there are the usual batch of activities.

Simming -

Flight sims and EaW - No EaW mission has been posted yet, though.

Historical missions - You can always play old missions from the various platforms and report the results. Up to four of them qualify for activity points per session. Listing here: and reporting here:

Multiplayer - Play matches of any game you can provide a screenshot of the results for, but at least two members of the RS must participate in the match to qualify.

Fiction - Rules are in the section below.

= Fiction Writing =

This is a permanent activity for whenever you feel the inkling to write. The only limitation is that it must be Star Wars-related.

- Write about whatever your RS character might be up to: recent activities, a specific event in the character's life, playing a practical joke on another member, etc. If you're into simming with the ABG you can alternately pick any of the characters you've created for that. Yes, even dead ones.
- Exploring beyond the Outer Rim.
- A massive fleet engagement.
- A smuggling run.
- Pirates hijacking a ship.
- A game of Sabacc (or any other SW game).
- Surviving a ship crash.
- Anything else that might inspire you!

The fiction must be at least 300 words, but can otherwise be as long as you want. You'll receive a point for each piece of fiction you write. These rules are subject to change if the official fiction rules are ever sorted out.

You can post your fiction in this forum thread:

=== Closing ===

That's all for now. Go for the Gold!
