Commend The Skeleton Army
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.

Category: Commendation
Nominee: The Skeleton Army
Proposed by: Sedgistan

Description: The World Assembly,

Recognising The Skeleton Army as the self-declared “greatest raider region,”

Bowing down to their mighty leader, the Warrior Skeleton Queen of Ramazakal,

Noting that their fearless armies of the undead are renowned for conquering regions under the cover of darkness,

Aware that this is a fate that has befallen such prominent regions as Texas, The West Pacific, The Rejected Realms, and The Cuckoos Egg,

Surprised to learn that The Skeleton Army never causes harm to the regions it invades and instead prefers to mingle with the natives, steal food from their barbecues, and attempt to drink beer – with hilarious results,

Appreciating The Skeleton Army’s generous supply of sticky ribs to the regions it conquers,

Acknowledging that all that The Skeleton Army requires from its defeated enemies is for them to sign the Thighbone of Surrender,

Believing that these novel and unique military tactics are far superior to the conventional varieties,

Desiring that other regions follow their example,

Thusly Commends The Skeleton Army.

Votes For: 2,964
Votes Against: 1,352

Implemented: Mon Nov 1 2010

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.

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:
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?
