DESCRIPTION
A weapon originally produced by the Galactic Empire to arm the Purge Troopers of their Inquisitorious program. Due to a spike in anxieties surrounding Force-sensitive activities, NalTech brought this antiquated technology into the modern age. The MW-65 Electrohammer is a weapon in the same vein as the Electroripper staves produced by a variety of different manufacturers: designed as a melee weapon that can be used against lightsabers if the need arises. The MW-65 was intended to be placed into the hands of NalTech's various droid models, for customers intent on buying security droids capable of keeping Force-sensitives out. However, it was also available for individual purchase.

When powered up, the Electrohammer generates a thin energy ribbon along the outer edge of the weapon. This edge can easily go toe-to-toe with a lightsaber. Its ribbon is not quite able to cut the way an electroripper staff can, but, with the flick of a switch, it is able to provide its wielder with another significant ability. When the weapon is fully charged (takes 1 posting round to successfully build up enough power), the wielder can slam it down, creating a powerful shockwave for up to 2 meters. Using the hammer's shockwave ability uses up its charge, requiring it to be charged up again before a successive shockwave can be produced. The force of the shockwave is enough to stagger an opponent and knock most humanoids off their feet. This is meant to give the wielder an opening to then slam the hammer down on them (without the shockwave) for the killing blow.

Electrohammers are the common weapons of guards patrolling facilities that might be common targets for Force-users. Wielding one effectively takes considerable strength and training, but is deadly in the proper hands.


LEGALITY
Illegal. Electrohammers require scrutiny, training, and licensing and are usually only found in the hands of licensed security companies or trained militaries. They are typically banned from most public spaces, and possessing one without a license is considered illegal in most systems.

INTENT
To add to Nalju Technologies's catalogue and bring a canon weapon into the site canon.

I'd prefer that the effect be reduced to 2 meters, and that the bone-shattering implication be removed. Knocking someone off their feet would probably be enough.

I'm not a tech admin, but, I think I speak for entire community when I say that this shouldn't be approved unless 'Its hammer time' is included somewhere in the write up.
