An early Skeleton Army sighting documents the formidable invasion force on its march towards glory. In those days, regional message boards were called the Civil Headquarters. The posts disappeared as soon as they scrolled out of sight.
An observer in The North Pacific, Jerrimania, notes on February 22, 2007:
Silliness from the Civil Headquarters
Sometimes, among the recruitment trash on the region’s messageboard, a little golden nugget will sometimes appear and make you chuckle.
My experience with Nationstates has been limited, but I know the basic jist (gist? gyst?) of the invading and defending regions thing. So when I saw this odd recruitment ad a few minutes ago, I had to chuckle and share.
The Fiefdom of Skeleton Recruiter:
Join the Skeleton Army
The worst Invaders in the history of Nation States, we do not require UN status, in fact we would prefer it if your not!!!!!
Come help us achieve our goal of making it 0/100 un-successful raids, so far we have failed to raid three regions, so we are well on our way to that magic number.
100, oooOOO that’s the Magic Number.
Our glourious military leader Tu-Pac can show you all the ropes in how not to raid.
Hey even if you do not want to join our pathetic army, you can drop by and leave a good skelelton joke or two, or come join us for some Humerus fun and gorge on some sticky ribs we do not mind.
