    CHoW#232 :: The Zodiac Warrior

    CHoW#232 :: The Zodiac Warrior



    ROUND #232 :: The Zodiac Warrior


    DESCRIPTION


    The Zodiac Warrior


    For ages a war has been going on between 12 different tribes, all of them empowered by a different starsign. The Zodiac Wars have been the stage of many famous powerful warriors and mages, yet none of them powerful enough to overcome the others. Which starsign channels the most power? Who will end the Zodiac Wars?

    Design the strongest Zodiac Warrior!

    • Can be male or female
    • Setting, timeframe, style; completely open!
    • Starsigns must be based on the western system: aries, pisces, libra etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_sign
    • Signs should show in the design, either in symbols and colors or literal references.
    • This is the warrior capable of winning the war, so (s)he must look impressive!


    Good luck!

    How about the newest star sign? The Ophiuchus? Is that a possibility as well as the 12 others?

    aaaaaaahahahahahaa *freaks out*...to much possibilities....can....not....decide...what to go ...for...*head explodes*

    so here my thoughts, just to share and talk.

    obviously are there some more suitable options and some less suitable ( therefore all the more of interest conceptwise)

    first things first... I first of all thought that the names of the astrological sign should be less an allusion to the real constellation of stars but rather nicknames they got as a result of their physical appearance or behavior.

    1. Sagitarius...yeah the most obvious one ... he shots...thats what you do to win a war...shot until they stop moving, maybe this particular one invented a gun so friggin huge that nothing can stand it. Period.
    2. Taurus , overcoming the enemies with pure physical strength, maybe a considerable amount bigger than the ones around him
    3. The twins offer a great "win-condition" as it might be quite impossible to win against them as they are always 2 so in a one on "one" versus match of champions theyll wipe the floor with their opponents , maybe connected spiritually so its impossible to kill just the one of them as both survive if one survives
    4. Lion obvious again , he is sublime and mighty, a leader, and supreme fighter ( not the real one ^^ ) thats what you need to win wars ...hes maybe not so much specialized in one particular field but he knows much about pretty much everything
    5. The Scorpion, winning the war be killing slowly and secretly ...obviously a assassin like guy...problem here it could get difficult to convey the "win a war part" with that character aka "win in CHOW" part....
    6.the Ram....had an idea about him being always in front ...yeah and charging into the enemy ...

    I know nothing groundbreaking but these are the options for me

    about the others :

    1. Crab...could be cool but ATM there is nothing in my mind concerning it
    2. the virgin could end this war by sacrificing herself to a certain god who than ends this war, OR she could be some sort of lolita/temptress who plays the others leaders of against each other so that she will be the only one left at the end
    3. the scales could be a reference to a judge who ends this war by deciding it
    4. the fishes....no nothing there either
    5. sea goat ...the same

    P.S.: why dont we have a "head explodes"-smiley ?
