    CHOW #93 - The Apple Gatherer

    Time period: Turn of the century (1900's England, Northern Europe or North East U.S.).

    The Apple Gatherer is an outdoor bogeyman. Sublime, subtle, deceitful and malicious. He is known to keep company with goblins, kobolds, redcaps and other foul ferries. He is especially fond of children, small dogs, and farm cats.
    Seen most frequently in apple orchards, he haunts only during the twilight hours, when he is most likely to catch a farmer's child lingering unawares.
    Focus on the psychology and emotional impact of the character. He needs to be believable and frightening* - NOT just some monster slammed together.

    CHOW #94 - Yin & Yang
    Guest Host: JessiBean

    In traditional eastern cultures and religions, the Yin and Yang are a system of cosmic balance, dark vs. light, good vs. evil, male vs. female, etc.

    For this chow there need to be two characters who are polar opposites and yet, through their contrast and conflict, balance one another out. The yin-yang symbol does not have to be in the image unless you want it to, nor does this have to be Asian inspired. The emphasis WILL be on contrasting personalities and the relationship between the two. Be creative with your opposites!

    CHOW #95 - Squirrel Mage

    Cedartuft is the female lead in sword and sorcery Middle Grade Reader (ages 8-12) story of high adventure.
    Cedarturft also happens to be a squirrel, a mage, and on a quest to save squirrel kind in her world.
    She carries a small cedar staff (a stick to us), a gray green cloak, and has various pouches, satchels and tidbits associated with her craft.
    Think of this as if it were for a book cover; so leave extra room at the top for a title, and show some action!

    CHOW #96 - Farmer Thicket

    Secondary or support character
    Farmer Thicket lives out in the boonies, farming… well, no one in town is really sure what Farmer Thicket does farm, except crop circles these days, but they’re sure he’s a farmer. He’s got the truck and the gun racks to prove it.

    A well known Alienophile, Farmer Thicket will tell anyone standing still long enough about how he was “Abicticated way back in ’59 by dem little grey guys wit’ their high-techy shinny ships.”

    When not in town explaining the difference between saucer types, he spends his time attempting to recontact the extraterrestrials with his home made "telempathonicating enhancimator", whose parts include, but are not limited to, a colander, truck battery, and jumper cables.

    Big hat, big boots, big buckle, big ears, little man. Farmer Thicket is just slightly spun.

    CHOW #97 - Hippie Joe

    Primary Character
    Across the field from Farmer Thickets' Crop Circle farm is the local recycle, run by a friend of Thicket's, Hippie Joe. Nam vet (he was a corpsman), and ex-emergency room doctor in the inner city, Joe lives a quiet life recycling the local recyclables and pontificating upon the world's woes.
    A little more than slightly reactionary, he is now the local peace activist, animal rights activist, aniti-war activist, Global Warming activist, Pro-Choice activist, and, just activist in general. Anal about what goes where in recycling (plastics are *never* mixed with glass, which is also, by the way separated into brown, green, and clear) cardboard goes over behind the dumpster but aluminum can go *in* so long as it's not tinfoil. All recyclables must be washed clean of food products.
    And he's strict vegetarian. Eggs are okay, because they're "cackleberries."
    Long reddish brown hair, tie dye shirt, torn jeans and a Jesus beard with beads, he's Hippie Joe.

    CHOW #99 - Herald to the Queen

    The End of an Era, Bring on the New Queen!

    The Herald is a powerful member of the Queens' court, announcing her arrival and departure, and acts as her body guard and protector. A knight of unrivaled power, The Herald is the one who champions the Queen and all her ventures.

    This character must be powerful. Watch your anatomy - we need a heroic, but believable character. This character needs to look the part - poised, strong, in control even in adverse situation.

    The character needs to be executed in a more realistic manner - no cartoons or comic styles will be accepted.

    CHOW 101 - The Spanish High Inquisitor

    Historical Fiction
    Spanish High Inquisitor Father Domingo Cristobal

    “The Society of Jesus was established by the papacy in 1540 as a very special "fighting unit" at the total and exclusive disposal of the Roman Pope -- whoever he might be. From their beginnings, the Jesuits were conceived in a military mode. Soldiers of Christ, they were given only two purposes: to propagate the religious doctrine and the moral law of the Roman Catholic Church as proposed and taught by the Roman Pope, and to defend the rights and prerogatives of that same Roman Pope. Purely spiritual and supernatural purposes. And specifically Roman Catholic.”
    --From The Jesuits, by Malachi Martin

    Father Domingo Cristobal’s faith has never failed him. Years of Jesuit training has made him a stoic man, stern but loving with his order, loyal to his superiors and an unrelenting pursuer of the heretical Protestants. He is used to applying any method necessary unflinchingly in purging the world of sins of the flesh, mind and soul. There is no question about God’s Will.

    And yet… a shadow lurks in the back of his mind. Unanswered, unrecognized, quietly probing, and exploring – what if Holy See is wrong?

    CHOW 102 - The Italian Plague Doctor

    Historical Fiction II
    The Italian Plague Doctor
    1349

    Coming out of the East, the Black Death reached the shores of Italy in the spring of 1348 unleashing a rampage of death across Europe unprecedented in recorded history. By the time the epidemic played itself out three years later, anywhere between 25% and 50% of Europe's population had fallen victim to the pestilence.
    --Eyewitness to History (www.eyewitnesstohistory.com)

    “My name is Gabriella. My father was a doctor, and I learned from him how to treat various maladies and to set bones and which herbs and mixtures and such would treat this illness or that.

    “My father, he died two months ago from the Black Death. I did not know what to do, so I donned his mask, gown, his boots and stick and gloves, and try to care for those I can.

    “I try to help. But they die anyway. So many. I bring the flowers and perfumes, the hot drinks, the blessed artifacts, leeches – I even smoke like a man now to ward the Death away from me! The laxatives do not seem to work, and I hate covering the poor souls in mercury and placing them in ovens to burn the disease out. They scream so….

    “May god have mercy on our souls, for I do not believe anyone shall survive…”

    CHOW 103 - Evil Genie

    FANTASY - OPEN ENDED

    Evil female genie.
    This is NOT to be a boob show. Focus on the character, give it a Middle Eastern spin. Be creative, not lecherous.

    CHOW 104 - The Four Brothers

    OFF THE DECK

    The Four Brothers
    Choose at least 2 of the Four to illustrate

    The Four Jacks – brothers all – but like most royals, bitter bickering and hatred sours their relationships with each other.

    Jack of Clubs is the Brute, and wounded on the inside – and can’t stand the site of blood.
    Jack of Spades is suave, sophisticated, and self centered.
    Jack of Diamonds is as gay as the day is long, and just avoids it all.
    Jack of Hearts doesn’t fight for himself, but for the people!

    To say they hate each other is akin to saying the sun rises in the morning. Their wars across the city are pitiless and brutal, each claiming a district decorated in their colors and code of arms and regalia. Elaborate duels, vile deceptions, and daring deeds are the duty for the day. But for all of their posturing, daredevil deeds, verbal salvos, and machismo – none can sword fight worth a whit.

    CHOW 105 - Amaterasu

    Amaterasu, Japanese Goddess of the Sun.

    This round is mostly open to interpretation, but do your homework and pull your design from the original mythology. You're welcome to do a fictional restyling, just make sure you can justify your reasoning.

    Here's some links to get you started:
