Wilson Kane wins a fortune and his future bride at a game of dice from the former pirate Balthasar. When he decides to go and get the girl, the pirate way, by kidnapping her, not only he finds out that she is more than a pirate could ever want from a wife... but that she has 4 identical sisters as well.
This discovery hits him when his men, who were supposed to help him out, each kidnaps a different girl... and none of them gets the right one! But Wilson Kane wants the girl he had met and no one else! Luckily for him it will be the girl herself to solve his problem and put an end to his dilemma...
a solution that will eventually fling her into a new way of life, aboard the Alidivento, across the Mediterranea sea!

Springtime for Balthasar
I think participation was pretty low though (which is unusual for such a great group) U_U.
But we get a free drawing in return so all is well that ends well! :D
But let's get down to our own little games.
This time with we're proposing two kinds of activities.
1) A naming contest
Rose is having a baby. Baby needs a name. A female one.
Unleash your imagination and help us pick a cool name for her! We'll make a poll for all the proposed names and it'll be decided by popular vote. Pirates vote to decide such things ;D .
2) A Pirate Balthasar Firefox browser skin contest
Firefox, in case you're not familiar with it, is a free browser software, and one of the most popular and used browsers worlwide.
Firefox works both in Windows, MAC and Linux OS, it's highly customizable and an all-around cool tool to have. A lot of plugins and custom options for Firefox are made by the users themselves and put up on the Mozilla mother site for other Firefox users to dl and cutomize their browser with.
It's a good way to both hone your skills, get recognized and make other people happy XD.
To make a skin (aka 'Persona') for Firefox you only need a standard graphics program to work on images, like Photoshop, GimP, Paint tool SAI or whatever software you have available, and use a picture... in our case it could be either an official Pirate Balthasar illustration from the comic, or a fanart.
In case you didn't make the fanart, just ask the author permission to use the pic ;D.
In any case, credit the author. It's both netiquette and what professionals do. All you need to know on Firefox skins (from step by step tutorials to examples and catalogue of finished skins) is here :[link]
and here: [link]
There's not really a deadline planned for this skin contest... also because after the main TPB story is over there will be the sequels and spinoffs, hence your picks of source images and inspiration for browser skin are endless XD.
Just go wild and submit and /or link your Firefox 'Persona' to us, somehow, when you are done! :D
Reward an Original Drawing.
