MARAUDING SKELETON ARMY ATTACKS A FEEDER!

In a bold move after their raid on game administrator’s region Cuckoos Nest [ed. note: The Cuckoos Egg], The Skeleton Army raided The East Pacific. Looks like these two regions are a match made in heaven. TEP has a strong role playing tradition and TSA is a role playing raider region. It’s all part of the game: TSA raids do not include playing capture the delegate flag.

After a week of fierce fighting (RMB RP) and a surprise move to TEP assuming a Star Trek borg motif which assimilates all nations, the standoff continues as I write this.

Ulthar Summer Solstice Festival, June 2010

The Skeleton Army came to Ulthar on the occasion of the Summer Solstice Festival, to which Da Mayor invited the fabled city’s friends.

Mayor For Life:

A party just isn’t a party without your friends. Ulthar just isn’t Ulthar without our friends. In no particular order – because I hate playing favorites – are the regions whose nations came, played, and made this our most successful festival ever.

The West Pacific Invasion, April 2010

The successful invasion of The West Pacific is well documented on its regional forum. The gargantuan feeder stood no chance against onslaught of the undead, and surrendered quickly.

Tao:

Twp Surrenders To The Skeleton Army

It began as a typical Thursday. A few “good morning” posts from the morning regulars, a couple of BADspams, and then the announcement came.

“Prepare this region for its Rightful Queen, Ramazakal the Beautiful, the Beneficent, the All-loving and All-knowing. Sign the Platinum-Plated Thighbone of Surrender (scrimshawed in 18-carat gold lettering) and all will go well with thee.”

And Rolheath signed.

Good thing, too, because his signature paved the way for the BBQ and beerquila fest that followed. Also, in a West Pacifican first, FRIDAY NIGHT KARAOKE in TWP instituted a Special Thursday edition to celebrate the merger with The Skeleton Army. What followed was a celebration that has continued to this very day. Nearly a full week of BBQ, beerquila, karaoke, and the kind of RMB FUN that one would only find in a Feeder invasion.

Skeleton Army officer Ripped Roots says, “Never has the Skeleton Army participated in this kind of campaign. It is truly unique. Totally unforgettable. The people in TWP are – HEY! Are those ˜sticky ribs™? Another pitcher of Chocolate Iguanas, please.”

Queen Ramazakal herself was overheard commenting, “Of all the regions under my dominion, The West Pacific is the finest and holds a special place in my heart. Well, in the section of my rib cage where my heart once was – let’s leave it at that.”

TWP Delegate-elect Darkesia had this to say about the Invasion. “Any other invaders would have been sent to Kandarin long ago; they wouldn’t have had a chance in TWP. But The Skeleton Army is different. I mean, look – they offer BBQ and beerquila. Who can say “NO” to that?”

Texas Invasion, August 2009

Invasion of Texas by The Skeleton Army!

This was long before people could scroll back regional message boards – Max Barry introduced the feature saving regional message board posts on NationStates in February 2011.

Thanks to NewTexas, it’s a special treat to be able to read some of the roleplay happening in 2009. Regional message board transcript by NewTexas on the Texas regional offsite forum.

The Texas Tuesday 2-Step Tour of Bearistotle and Hebert:
*Nods*
My last post got eaten. Okay, tea, beer and home made cookies and muffins are on the table.

The Warrior Skeleton Queen of Ramazakal:
Ripped Roots so glad that you have come back. Let us pitch our tents over there under those trees. *whispers to Roots* there sure are alot of strange nations here, and they call us strange

The Dominion of Ripped Roots:
Obviously they’ve never been to Oklahoma.
*pitches blue tent, taps keg of cold beerquilla, serves locals*
Trecdom! Release tractor beam! It’s a TSA tradition – stand back.
*giant tank of ice cream falls from sky, lands right in front of tent*
Perfect. Chocolate? Vanilla? Butter Pecan?

Ulthar Invasion, January 2009

In 2009, one of the regions invaded was Ulthar!

Mayor For Life:

Our counterspy Undead Berzerker will return to The Skeleton Army with Monkeys in Helmets. Well let them sort out who is Ambassador and who is manservant (knowing them, they’ll arm wrestle to take turns). I have signed the Thighbone of Defeat and Ulthar will welcome the undead to visit the City and treat them as dignitaries. Party at One Eyed Jack’s!

The West Pacific Invasion, September 2007

Afterwards, many citizens of The West Pacific claimed they didn’t remember what had happened. But once the fogs of hangover cleared, and they checked, there it was. Their region had been conquered by the unstoppable undead.

Darkesia:

Invasion! Invasion!

Just wanted to put something here to commemorate the grand invasion of The West Pacific by The Skeleton Army.

If we don’t make some sort of reminder, none are liable to remember it. I intend to get roaringly drunk and forget about it myself soon.

God I love it when silliness rules this game! <<< the way Max intended.

Invasion! Invasion!
