    I dont know why but that reminded me of Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin
    So maybe our vision of the infamous russian madman mystic...with a bit of a twist.

    Veteran of the Psychic Wars
    Inspired by the narrator of the Blue Oyster Cult song "Veteran of the Psychic Wars", but can be a general interpretation of the phrase. Here are the lyrics:
    "You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
    Ive been living on the edge so long
    Where the winds of limbo roar
    And Im young enough to look at
    And far too old to see
    All the scars are on the inside
    Im not sure if theres anything left of me

    Dont let these shakes go on
    Its time we had a break from it
    Its time we had some leave
    Weve been living in the flames
    Weve been eating up our brains
    Oh, please dont let theses shakes go on

    You ask me why Im weary, why I cant speak to you
    You blame me for my silence
    Say its time I changed and grew
    But the wars still going on dear
    And theres no end that I know
    And I cant say if were ever...
    I cant say if were ever gonna to be free

    Dont let these shakes go on
    Its time we had a break from it
    Its time we had some leave
    Weve been living in the flames
    Weve been eating out our brains
    Oh, please dont let theses shakes go on

    You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
    My energys spent at last
    And my armor is destroyed
    I have used up all my weapons and Im helpless and bereaved
    Wounds are all Im made of
    Did I hear you say that this is victory?

    Dont let these shakes go on
    Its time we had a break from it
    Send me to the rear
    Where the tides of madness swell
    And been sliding into hell
    Oh, please dont let shakes go on
    Dont let these shakes go on
    Dont let these shakes go on"

    You can call me lame if you want ;P but I thought that kind of character would be really interesting.
    If vegetable oil is made from vegetables, and olive oil is made from olives, is baby oil made from babies?

    This is like a 'The Suffering/Condemned' thing. Urgh, nasty - I can just imagine what they'd look like. Very freaky ChOW if it was ever selected. Kudos for the good idea, CrissCross.

    The Rosicrucian Master -
    First Approach: Design a philosophical mastermind; this ChOW would require you to pay attention to facial features as usual - but the rules are that the character must imply a suitable demeanour, in any form. This could be attained by just researching intelligent-looking people (Morgan Freeman, anyone? ). Try to recreate the glint, intelligence and humour in their eyes - or maybe go for a more direct approach by taking inspiration from any Esoterica teachings that are available - or even portraits, such as Francis Bacon (a 15th/16th century English philosopher), Jacob Bhoeme, Socrates (said to have had his own Daemon) Rudolf Steiner (founder of spiritual science), Leonardo da Vinci etc. A concise explanation of the Esoteric world is in Jonathan Black's "The Secret History of the World" - very interesting and intriguing stuff sure to strike some visual chords.

    Second Approach: could be to design a character that best shows the spiritual Brow Chakra (the Third Eye to the spirit world -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_eye), the vegetable body form commonly referred to in Esoterica, or a Rosicrucian/Freemason/Dalai Lama buddhist master attaining an altered state of conciousness. Quite a bit of research would be involved to get the characters right. Remember that they had many ways of attaining that altered state: near-death experiences, drugs, thought patterns, intense teachings.

    Seeing as the whole undersea utopia theme is going on i think we should do more themed stuff like that like loads of different planet concepts that span across chow, cow, eow & Idw could eventually build up an entire universe.
    The CA Universe, kinda has a ring to it don't you think?

    Good idea?
    I love that idea

    I quite like the current "John Carter of Mars" topic - any chance we can get a Princess Dejah Thoris or Tars Tarkas follow up?

    I think this is a great idea. It would be really interesting to see everyone's ideas and to come up with some of your own.
