Here are some skills I'd suggest for skeletons:

Bare Bones - lowered accuracy vs. the skeleton because they don't have flesh where they were attacked
Death Rattle - Like the zombie moan, but different text
Pile of Bones - Like Play Dead, but different text
Club Foot - Skeleton can remove a leg to use it as a blunt weapon, and reattach it later.  Skeleton takes 2 AP to move while leg is detached.

These ones are not my ideas, but skills that Mo has mentioned (jokingly or not) in the shoutbox:

Xylobones - Skeleton gets damage bonus when in a group of three or more dancing skeletons.
Skullduggery - Skeleton can sabotage barricades by becoming part of them.

Terrible. I'm Skeleton #1 fan but you can't just change text.

I'm thinking Death Rattle - Spooks nearby enemies in 3x3 radius with eerie rattling. XX% for them to scream in terror, revealing their position.
Pile of Bones - Skeletons become a pile of bones, similar to zombie hiding, except instead of being displayed as "a corpse" in the tile description somewhere it says "bones are strewn about here". They can be searched for as usual, but if a player simply walks through a square they're on, when they try to leave "a bony hand latches to your ankle like a vice as a skeeltal figure forms before you" and you get attacked for a decent amount of damage. Of course this then reveals the skeleton.

When I get home I'll post my skeleton manifesto, just you wait
» You throw a tantrum, but all you seem to accomplish is slight disarray.

Dancing Skeleton- You are more prone to have attacks miss you. Also you look awesome.
No Brainer- You have no brain, but somehow you can open doors. Good job.

TOO SPOOKIE - opposing player has a 75% chance of losing their nerve and failing an attack on skeleton, because they're way too spookie.

Is this new race even in the works or is it just a joke?
