Skillz88 joined eRepublik on the 16th October 2009, Day 696. Since then, he has been active in both the military and in politics. He was a 5-time consecutive Congressman of West Midlands.
His favourite thing about eRepublik was the great community. He was also a self-confessed lover of all animals black and white and puffy and cute, more specifically penguins.
He disliked all animals black and white and not puffy and not cute with dreadlocks.

Skillz88 joined the Radical Freethinkers Alliance as soon as he reached level . He shamefully admits it was the logo that attracted him. He purposely avoided The Unity Party because he thought he would have more a chance in a smaller party. As soon as Skillz88 joined the Radical Freethinkers Alliance he became one of the leading members outside of 'the Cabal'. He was very active on the RFA forums and became Entertainment Director for a short while. He rose through the party ranks to become part of the Radical Freethinkers Alliance Cabinet and Recruitment Director.
Skillz88 changed his political party and joined the The Unity Party. This was the single most difficult decision he had to take in his eLife. He spent hours wriggling in his Artic igloo and consulted advice of his eFriends. The most significant factor that led to his eventual switching was he thought the Radical Freethinkers Alliance was not moving forward. The Unity Party was the biggest party in eUK and the most active. Skillz88 has become a Congressman under The Unity Party.

Skillz88 eagerly joined the Royal Navy as soon as he could. He became a part of the Royal Navy and was quickly accepted into the Navy community through his use of IRC. He then requested transfers to the Royal Marines (the more active force of the Royal Navy at the moment) and to his delight was accepted. He was put into Royal Marines Squad 2 under the command of Lando Khan.

Skillz88 has served one of the shortest ever term as Captain in the Royal Navy. He served for a grand total of 2 days as Captain of HMS Westminister (congress ship) before 'military reforms' kicked in. Skillz88 says the time he spent as Captain taught him great things which he will take on for his future eLife.
He was the 'Lt. Colonel' of the 12th Regiment of the Royal Artillery. He was extremely proud of this role but was forced to retire in a rage of inactivity of the regiment. He was quickly offered the 'Major' position of 19th Regiment of the Royal Artillery which he accepted.
