    CHOW #53 - X-Com - The Chryssalid - ORTHO
    Guest Host: Julian Gollop, creator of the X-Com series

    Hi Andrei,
    So the character I have chosen is a re-imagining of the most feared
    alien from X-Com - The Chryssalid.

    Description:

    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.

    Here are some informational links:

    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.

    From any time period, must be obviously non-human (robots are ok, pointy elf-ears are not enough). Must also have a uniform with insignia and at least one non-lethal weapon.

    The Chief Librarian was once a lord of Atlantis. Foreseeing the city’s demise he gathered the most sacred and powerful texts and took them to a place where no mortal could find them.

    CHOW #62 - Aztec Space Traveler
    Guest Host: oishiiniku

    Intelligent life forms have been visiting our planet for thousands of years. They created a giant landing strip in the Nazca desert. They have been celebrated as statues and other relics created by many civilizations in Central America.

    Design a space traveller (humanoid or otherwise) wearing a costume influenced by Aztec or other similar cultures.

    CHOW #63 - Iorek Byrnison
    Guest Host: D-BAKER

    Iorek Byrnison is the exiled king of the Panserbjørne (armoured bears). He forged his own armour from sky iron. His armour is his soul.
    Like all Panserbjørne, Iorek follows a very strict code of contract, and will in no situation betray a promise he has made. He possesses incredible strength, and like many of his kind is an expert smith.

    (Edit: From the book "The Golden Compass" by Phillip Pullman)

    CHOW #64 - The Black Queen
    Guest Host: cakeypigdog

    The year is 2025. The Black Queen is the figure-head of the British- Japanese empire known as the GBNR.

    The GBNR are one of 3 super-states at constant warfare with each other. It is the hundredth year since the forming of these states. Our queen is a divine leader as well as a military commander.

    Her appearance should bring together Victorian and traditional Japanese aesthetics but also take into account the 100 years that have passed since the joining of these two cultures.
