    He never moved from Turin for the entire life,

    but this man has written the most beautiful books and created sagas about pirates of the XIX century.

    Emilio Salgari created entire sagas, like "The Black Corsair" and "Sandokan": he showed to the novels world a new type of pirate, the Oriental pirate, he wandered with his dreams on the Borneo, Malaysia, Caribbean.

    Reading his books mean enter in a complete and mysterious world of adventure, crossing jungles, fight against Kali evil worsdhippers and English governors, stay on the deck of a pirate ship, participating to assaults and see terrible storms....

    all written by a man that never moved from his city all the life, but with his fantasy he was going everywhere.

    Here's all about him, in wikipedia EN:

    Have a look at this:
    Creating a new character model

    You should be able to pick a character from the books and make a model for him in the game...

    Based on your recommendation, I'm reading The Black Corsair. It didn't start well, but got better quickly. :)

    You did well, Larry: now is a time in wich people tend to not read books, favoring computers and cells, but for many italians of my age Salgari was a must of the adventure writings.
    His precise description of jungles, animals, and all surroundings are incredible, considering that he never moved from Turin, that is inland and not on sea.
