The stage lay in darkness. The audience settled back into their seats, silent as they await the stage to light up for the next announcement. A brilliant set of red eyes pierced through the darkness before the spotlight fell upon an approaching tall figure. Human in form save for the blue skin and the slick back, shiny, blue-black hair. His uniform crisp and white with gold epaulets on each shoulder. The rank plaque denoting that of an Imperial Grand Admiral. He stopped at the microphone. Boots at shoulder space apart, arms folded behind his back as he surveyed the audience. “Good evening.” The Grand Admiral articulated carefully. “I am perhaps unknown to you. I am Grand Admiral Thrawn of the Seventh Fleet, Commander of the Chommell Sector and on behalf of the Imperial Admiralty, I have been tasked with the honour of announcing and conferring a prestigious award to the Commander who has demonstrated exceptional skill and resourcefulness in artfully mustering their forces in the field of battle. Ever steadfast in a war of attrition under rapidly shifting conditions and events which threaten to derail their campaigns. And so it goes...” Mitth’raw’nuruodo cast his eyes to the audience, his gaze singling out three individuals. “The three Commanders who have distinguished themselves amongst their peers and have caught the attention of the Admiralty are Mand’alor @Bardan_Jusik - reports reveal this former Jedi, now converted into the ways of the Mandalorian culture, has lead several campaigns, achieving various and unorthodox results from their units... Supreme Commander @darthbernael - a rising star on the Galaxy’s list of gifted commanders. Currently leading two campaigns and demonstrated consistent and gracious leadership skills, and is one to keep an eye on... Thirdly, we have Grand General @Sinrebirth - Loyal son of the Empire, this commander has rallied a massive force loyal to his cause. He has lead them across a significant number of campaigns, unwavering against the march of time. One wonders what devilry is at work to drive such a consistently achieving figure.” He smiled coolly and inclined his head. “May a warrior’s fortune smile upon you all...” Carefully lifting the wax seal of the envelope, he withdrew a slip of flimsiplast. Reading the aurebesh script carefully, he filed it back inside and closed the flap. Spoiler “Grand General Sinrebirth, please make your way to the Dias. You have been awarded the highest honour of ‘Best Games Master’. Please come forth and accept.” The orchestra started up the theme.
