Ulthar, splendiferous city!
The Skeleton Army is dirty and gritty.
It’s locked, isn’t it a pity?
Doesn’t seem to be an entrance to this city.

All around, people looking undead
Singing incantations, seeking duels like a hothead.

From cafés you can watch the world,
See the events unfurl.
Come on, come on, let’s feast all night.
The Queen is here, it’ll be alright.

We pledge kindness to every kitty.
We have come to party all night
Here in Ulthar, in the city
Here in Ulthar, in the city.

Ulthar, Mayor of the city
Shadows in your nightmares sing you a ditty.
The Skeleton Army’s cooking committee
Brings you secret sauce so your sleep’ll be pretty.

Meet a dragon at the bus stop.
Cobwebs everywhere, from catacombs to rooftop.

The nightmares in this world
Will make your toenails curl.
Come on, come on, let’s feast all night.
The Queen is here, it’ll be alright.

We pledge kindness to every kitty.
We have come to party all night
Here in Ulthar, in the city
Here in Ulthar, in the city.

(Instrumental, truck & rocket noises)

Ulthar, kitty-friendly city.
If you harm one, they’ll show you no pity.
Watch out! If you see a kitty
Gotta be on your best behaviour in this city.

All around, people looking undead.
BBQ’s fired up, hotter than a matchhead.

The nightmares in this world
Will make your toenails curl.
Come on the roller coaster ride!
Despite the curse it’ll be alright.

We pledge kindness to every kitty.
We have come to party all night
Here in Ulthar, in the city
Here in Ulthar, in the city.

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.

Ulthar Diplomacy: Parade of Regions, October 2009

Ramazakal, Queen of The Skeleton Army – may rose petals ever adorn her victorious path – remembers the beginnings.

Mayor for Life:

As part of our First Anniversary Celebration, we invited all of our friendly regions to post some history about their region on the Ulthar RMB.

The Warrior Skeleton Queen of Ramazakal:

A history of the Skeleton Army? Well it started as a small region and me and tupac joined when Humourous and another were the only ones there. They had started it as a joke I think. Anyway as you can see we are still here except for Tupac and he will always be remembered as our General.We have been into more regions than I can remember, we have been asked by many invader regions to join with them. But we are the great and mighty Skeleton Army and we know what we are doing. Are history is this, we were, we are and we will be………….

Diplomacy with Ulthar, January 2009

Mayor for Life, the founder and Mayor of Ulthar, on regional diplomacy:

Ulthar Ambassador: The Rogue Nation of Undead Berzerker, and alternately, The Blithering Nonsense of Monkeys in Helmets

Ulthar Diplomat’s Summary: The Skeleton Army has Ulthar’s only invader Ambassador, Ghost of Berzerker, because while they do raid, it is an army of undead warriors who ceremonially demand that your region admit defeat and then hold a big party with flying tanks of ice cream, berrquilla, and sticky ribs. Monkeys trades off with Berzerker in peacetime as she chose him to be her pet monkey. Some diplomats have it better than others.

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!
