ChOW #30 - Most Unfortunate Lady
there is nothing worst in this world, then for a mother to loose her child.
yet worst is for a mother to have a kid that wants to die.
but tragic has no end - since worst that this is for a mother to have such a child, that she begins to ask the Lord to take him away.
these are terrible times...
French Revolution Period
She used to be a noble.

CHOW #31 - Non Spanish Toreador
-he worked as a guide for foriegn big game hunters traveling in africa. he maintains traditional masai garb, adorned with trophies of previous hunts. he mainly kills wildabeests, watusi, and other large bulls of africa. the combination of his brightly colored attire and his game of choice earned him the nickname, the toreador, by spanish hunters he was guiding through the bush. he was later brought to spain to fight bulls professionally.
CHOW #32 - vissara - orc female beauty
Every race has beauties but Visarra went beyond that. For orcs she was unreal. And to make the story even harder to believe... her love affair that casted her out of her kingdom... was with a Dwarf named Gunka... they both had to be outcast. Unreal as it seems.. the story is true.

to inherit the land that once belonged to our fore fathers
CHOW #34 - Morganica - 1930s First Android
He couldn't believe his eyes... in the middle of the night... it moved.
He fell asleep and the sound of the whole installation moving... made him shiver. It bloody moves!!!!
The professor witnessed his creation working on itself, finishing what he had started.
He could not even consider the possibilities of what he created.
Dark thoughts were in his mind...
It was real... now what?

CHOW #35 - X-90 - Cyan Monster/Horror Movie
It was said strange creatures inhabited the swamps. The people of the nearby village suspected that these creatures took
people that drowned and transformed them into the living dead of the swamp. They were known as "the unknown". Some
that survived the encounter with the unknown spoke of "A spider-like ghostly image rising from the swamp, Its skin blue,
cyan even, transparent. Their limbs were protruded with long spikes, or sticks which made them very mobile in the sludge.
Their image was truely frightening!"
The swamp has been closed for public since a series of accidents, but people often speak of the strange silhouettes moving
in unsettling jerky movements over the swamp and of their high pitches howles that sound through the night.

CHOW #36 - Olivera
"Oliveria Lisa Norton is not an animal.
Oliveria Norton is a human being. Just like you, just like me.
She's a sweet and kind child, and she never did anything wrong, to anyone.
She has a condition. An illness. A disease.
She never had a boyfriend, and she didn't go to this year's field trip.
Oliveria probably won't go to the prom, either.
But oliveria Norton isn't a freak. She's not a monster.
Oliveria lisa Norton is not an animal…."

CHOW #37 - Thief - Human/Animal Mix.
As shipping routes were first being established in the eastern Mediterranean, a timid aquatic civilization was being displaced by the growing traffic and trade. In a hopeless attempt to preserve their secluded way of life, these Cephalopodic humanoids conducted raids on port markets. The Octopus men were perfectly adapted for thievery with skin that could morph color and texture to blend in with all the rich patterns of the bazaar and a tentacle for every tasty morsel. Regrettably, as much as they stole and sabotaged, it was not enough to stem the surging tide of commerce.
Winner: Chuck Wadey

CHOW #38 - Scotish Dandy
(in a VERY heavy Scottish accent)
men alive this vacation is great!
this is me on top of the "Sheppard`s Buttock" higeland mountain, watching over loch-ness lake.
strangly enough, there`s no wind at all up here, and everything looks REAL flat and silly and cartoon-like and boring, which really bothers me for some reason.
but i do look smashing, if you don`t mind me saying so, lassie.
the photo was taken by Spencer Mcleary, who`s a friend of mine which i am not attracted to whatsoever,
i do not dream of him at nights, and i never Undressed him with my eyes while drooling.
i`ll be back to the studio in a week or so, hold down the fort for me, Binnie.
and please tell Misses Ogilvy her dress will be ready for her as soon as she`ll manage to fit INTO IT.
well, all the best
William of Ornshelm, haute couture."

CHOW #39 - Jason and the Argonauts
It is time again.
These are desperate times. Times of uncertainty and tragedy.
A world of dismay and corruption is calling out for help.
Crying out for heroes, once again.
Summoned by Zeus himself,
Dead or alive, these once revered men of legend,
Must keep a promise Taken in the days of the ancient.
Dead or alive, these men, now forgotten,
Must take upon themselves one last task.
On the battleship "Argo" Lead by a heavy medicated Jason, and an emotionally crippled Hercules,
these men, merely ghosts from a dead past, set out on one final mission
For the sake of all human kind.
It is time again.
These are The Argonauts.
Things are about to get ugly.

CHOW #40 - The Dreamcatcher
Dreamcatching is a very rare talent among sorcerers, and as such those who manage to do it are very much in demand, especially by the parents of children chronically plagued with nightmares. In the case of this particular Dreamcatcher, a family has hired him to help their daughter sleep peacefully through the night. Dreams are physically intangible, so he must place himself in a mental state between waking and sleep and summon his own dream avatar to get the job done. The dreamcatcher’s avatar dutifully bundles up all the girl’s nightmares into a small compact glowing ball, allowing the good dreams to filter through undisturbed. During the day while the dreamcatcher gets his proper sleep, his partner fashions the glowing nightmare balls into jewelry and accessories that they then sell for a ridiculous price to rich and bored customers. The nightmare balls are very popular, for not only are they very beautiful, they allow their bearer to catch waking glimpses of a child's fertile imagination. Whether this is ethical or not does not concern the dreamcatcher, as he makes a tidy mint off of the things and considers it only fair since he has to spend all night psychically battling away children's fears of spiders and snakes and creepie crawlies, which naturally is quite taxing.
CHOW #41 - The Weappon
Its beautiful forms dance over its surface until it is claimed by anyone brave or foolish enough to attempt to wield it.
Once grasped it can take on the form of almost any weapon the user can imagine.
Gradually the weapon consumes its master growing ever more powerful

CHOW #49 - Sewer Mermaid King/Queen
out of suggestion thread - thx. gethsemane
Beneath city streets, among waste and giant long-forgotten alligators, there are mermaids. They may not be the pretty little fish-women of myth -they are urban, begrimed and toughened and adapted to survive in the harsh environment beneath the city- but they are mermaids nonetheless. This is their king/queen.
CHOW #51 - Steam Punk Airship Pilot
Guest Host: Trevor
Just what it says, cool steam technology coupled with the spirit of high seas adventure and rouge swashbuckling badassnes.
CHOW #53 - X-Com - The Chryssalid - ORTHO
Guest Host: Julian Gollop, creator of the X-Com series
So the character I have chosen is a re-imagining of the most feared
alien from X-Com - The Chryssalid.
The Chryssalids one of the main alien terror species in the PC game 'X-COM: UFO Defense'. They are roughly humanoid in size, with an insect-like exoskeleton and menacing claws. They strike fear into X-Com soldiers in a major way. The reason? They turn civilians into zombies by injecting a parasitical Chyssalid spore. Since the Chryssalids attack in densely populated civilian zones, the task of the X-Com commander becomes perilous. Every civilian is a potential zombie recruit, but it is much worse than that. A new Chryssalid will emerge from a zombie in a frighteningly short space of time. It is entirely possible for an X-Com commander to find his squad transformed into a horde of Chryssalids, with no hope of salvation.
The task is to re-imagine the Chryssalid. How can it's parasitical nature be portrayed? Perhaps it has some human genetic material combined with its own? There could be a hint of some human features mixed with something horribly alien. For added effect, the creature can be portrayed shedding its human-zombie host.

CHOW #54 - James Stanton
Guest Host: phuzion
The year is 1875. After the Civil War ended, the Union marksman, tracker and scout was out of a job. The only suitable job left for men in Stanton's position was bountyhunting... after all, hunting men is what he does best. Armed with two Army issue Colt 45 Peacemakers, and an 1873 Winchester Deluxe Lever Action Short Rifle, James Stanton hunts down the baddest of the bad. The lowest, most dangerous scum of the earth that prey on helpless caravans, killing the men then raping and selling the women for ammunition and cheap whiskey. Stanton has no tollerance for this kind of lifestyle, having lost his wife and daughter to simillar brigands. Now, after 5 years, he has made a name for himself as the fastest gunslinger from Missouri to the Rio Grande. Outlaws beware! Stanton aims to send them to meet their maker via the bullet train express!!
CHOW #58 - Nintendo Character Made Real
Guest Host: MarcoMazzoni
Nintendo Hero made real - 12 years later
In 1995 Nintendo of America officially discontinued the Nintendo Entertainment System and purged their stock of the console. In an oversight that would forever change the world, a new werehouse manager at the Japanese distributer acidentally cleared a batch of "prototype" consoles for shipment in the last wave. Never meant to reach the hands of the consumer, these consoles had the strange ability to bring playable characters from the games to life. By the time Nintendo was able to track down and incinerate all 800 of the anomalous consoles it was too late. An estimated 23,000 NES playable characters had materialized into our world. Due to the quantity of systems and popularity of certain games, many of these are duplicates of the same character.
12 years have passed since the incident and the government has made all possible effort to integrate these characters into our society. While many have made the best use of their powers in our world, some still struggle to adapt.
Your task is to redesign a playable NES character showing how they have adapted or are stuggling to adapt to the limitations of our reality. What are the possibilities of having several duplicates of one character? There are no video game villans to do battle with, but there are still many uses for heroes of extrordinary ability in our world. But remember not all playable characters are necessarily concidered heroic. for every Samus or Link, there is also a Qbert and Chef from Burger Time... or the marble from Marble Madness!
It can be any playable character, but it MUST be from the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
