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 #53 - X-Com - The Chryssalid - ORTHO
Guest Host: Julian Gollop, creator of the X-Com series
Attachment 293962Hi Andrei,
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.
