The original poll ended in a tie with 134 votes for two options! So let's break it with a:

TWO DAY TIE-BREAKER VOTE FOR THE PLAYER SKIN CONTEST THEME!
Winning theme will run for the month of August 2021!

waves The Seven Seas idea pitched by WolveReigner781
-
Step aboard for a voyage back to the days when royal navies hoisted their sails and when pirates spread fear across the deeps.
Create a player skin that looks seaworthy and fit for adventure! It could be a highly decorated naval officer, leading the proudest of armadas. Or it could be a bone-chilling, cutthroat buccaneer seeking wealth and notoriety. The theme can be historical, fictional, or even a mix of both. Be creative, and make a character you would imagine seeing on a great wooden ship in the middle of a briny ocean.

offline_bolt Pulp Heroes idea pitched byThe Multiversity
-
These aren't the typical heroes you're used to. Return to the age of blimps, tommy guns, and domino masks for a classic pulp adventure!
Create a player skin based on the pulp heroes of the 1920s and 30s - heroes that laid the groundwork for the introduction of Batman and Superman. Doc Savage, Tarzan, The Shadow, Black Mask are a couple of examples.

Cast your votes!

to everyone who's complaining about the uniqueness of seven seas, remember that there were more creative ideas that you could have voted for and probably would have won first (that is, if everyone voted based on creativity) :/
there will be other contests after this one too lol

Honestly the 1920-30s era of pulp fiction or comics is just so fascinating. It's extremely cheesy and ridiculous but in a fantastically charming way.



Not matter if the theme pass or not, I will try to have fun with it.

I feel like it could give birth to more diversity than just another burly eye-patched pirate.

So Pulp heroes it will be for me!



(for those who want, you can find some inspiration here )

Here's a tip, as Michiru stated in one of her comments below here, PIRATES ARE NOT ONLY THE ONLY THING ON THE IDEA OF SEVEN SEAS, there are also ancient Greek explorers, searching for new land in the Mediterranean in 1000 BCE, a Polynesian explorer searching for an island for his chiefdom, a Spanish conquistador setting sail to the newly discovered "new world", a lieutenant on the eras of world war one or two, or even a deckhand in the era of 19th to 20th century transatlantic voyages, there are even more than pirates in the topic.

Limiting navigation to the piracy era (roughly 17th and 18th centuries) is quite unfortunate. There could have been room for more interesting and original ideas than just pirates... (Antique (Greek sailors, Phenician traders, Roman galley crew), Middle Age (Viking era, trading), Renaissance (discovery of the New World), Victorian Era (steam boats), Transatlantic era (Titanic, Lusitania), world wars (Atlantic and Pacific wars), even modern era (Modern piracy, smuggling, yachting) or futuristic (dystopia, dramatic rise in sea level))
I may have wrongly interpreted the description, but the way it is written strongly implies a limitation to the piracy era. How sad :x

I decided to make a skin which is tied to the early 1800's (when Napoleon was around in europe) instead of the common pirate theme everyone associates any sea themed skin with

kinda conflicted on this one, both themes seem cool, pulp heroes interests me cause i like to make superhero skins, but wont creativity be limited to just pre existing characters? and wouldnt that effect creativity scoring?
