    CHOW #42 - Oxygen King

    FINAAAAAALLLLLLL
    " date 2259: planet: UW c238: this is only the second planet we had found with any sort of atmosphere in this system.
    had i know how bad the first 3 years of terraforming had gone i probably wouldnt have taken the job. but 9 years later im still here
    ive begun to feel less and less due to the strain of breathing this harsh atmosphere but because of my over exposure
    im one of the few that can breathe unassisted in the open. i believe it is changing me.i have already lost my right arm, replaced by this clumsy electromag excavator. the ice deposits that i have been tasked to find are getting fewer and far between. i alone have been responsible for the last 6 finds but it still isnt enough. the public sees me as a hero, they have dubbed me the oxygen king
    but i fear the deposits will run out soon. maybe 6 months to a year before we run out if i cant find any others
    we are so secluded here i doubt evac could make it in time if at all. do i tell my people? or do i keep looking?
    either way i feel we are doomed
    no ice no oxygen no oxygen no life
    i miss my children, my wife, i hope they understand what im trying to do "

    Hey, it's my first submitted CHOW!

    He's married to the Carbon Queen.
    CHOW #42 - Oxygen King

    "You don't know 'bout the Oh-two King? Larry, where've you been since the Big Ozone Collapse? His the richest freakin man in the Federation! Nobody thought he would make it when he started selling freaking OXYGEN, but then with the Collapse and all, the market was skyrocketing!"

    EDIT: Reactions to suddenly appearing submissions.

    Trevor: Cool!
    Durin: Poor guy! I still have to pop in in your SB..
    Fuuryoku: Wow, very special idea!
    Eric Gerhard: Doesn't look much like a king, but cool nonetheless.
    Faroresama: Poor Tom... "In retail", haha!

    Oh, and completely off topic: what the HELL's this supposed to be? "Nintendo"? How is that nintendo?

    Count me in!
    From the description provided, I got the feeling that he is a torn character, ripped by his concience, pierced by guilt. I'm trying to get that feeling into my concept.

    The Oxygen King: Aaron King, CEO of Oxxen Oxygen Harvesting Corp.

    As CEO of the multinational company Oxxen, Aaron King has become the most powerfull man on earth.
    His career made a rather strange twist of fate. If we go down the records, we find out that Aaron King was an ecology specialist, very concerned with climate problems, global warming and other signs of disastrous problems regarding the state our planet was in. His point of view was, that the whole planet was controlled by a few big players and he hated this profoundly. By the time that mankind had nearly destroyed it's own habitat, King had built out a vast network of laboratories and research centers around the globe in search for oxygen filtering and production methods, as war had contaminated most of the world's air.
    This is about the time he made friends with the wrong people. They forced him into becoming the man he now is. The only true ruler of the planet, attached to the strings of others. Blinded at first, he now sees what has become of him, the only thing he never wanted to be. The terror of the small man, proclaimed king by a vast amount of suckups, but chained in his palace, an empty shell... thus living his worst nightmare.

    CHOW #42 - Oxygen King

    In a deforested future, still powered by carbon, it became apparent that oxygen was becoming an invaluable commodity, much as water had been in the century before and oil in the century before that.

    Anticipating the trend, Lord Javor consolidated his power by gaining the most direct control possible over that vital resource. Step one was a course of genetic and cybernetic alterations in which he converted his respiration system to expel O2. Step two was the eradication of every other oxygen source through the buyout and intentional drought of chloroplast farms. The bottleneck in oxygen distribution caused a global collapse of civilization and the die-off of everyone unable to reach shelter in his fortress. Tank hauling platoons were able to make temporary trips outside, working the fields for food production and extending Javor's power beyond the throne room, but for the most part he had to distribute oxygen directly to his subjects.

    Now, in order to keep his tiny feudal economy running he must devote every minute to keeping his subjects breathing, either directly or by tending to storage devices. Soon, he thinks, he will give up and rest. As he slowly starves to death, he will take pleasure in the fact that no one remains who can dethrone the Oxygen King.

    maybe it`s the way you speak,
    or maybe i had just too many beers before breakfast, but,
    dude, i don`t understand what you`re saying.
    what slump? what complaints? why "its on" with you and me?

    CHOW #42 - Oxygen King

    "One hundred years it had taken him. One hundred years of sleeping, his feet in the ever more polluted earth. He had seen what was coming. he had seen that the air would turn to poison, and that the leaders that were would do nothing. there was only one terrible course to take. He changed himself, becoming both animal and plant, and over the course of a century he slept in a secluded valley, until he had grown large enough to stride the earth, devouring the poisons- now harmless to him- leaving the purified air for the survivors who now deferred to him as thier new anointed sovereign."

    Update!

    This will be a lot of fun....
    (edit)
    Guys... I have finished, this is the final... Hope you all like, as I'm really loving all of your works.

    Good luck for everybody.
    CHOW #42 - Oxygen King

    (edit) Ok, here is the description:

    He gave his life to save mankind. In the 24th century, nuclear war had vanished most of the gases important for natural life on Earth. This great cientist knew that nothing could create and control a massive power of electricity to make oxygen. He turned himself into a living and concious energy core. He could now spend great amounts of electricity and control it without blowing him out. Through this act of pure love and desperation to save his so beloved homeworld, an enormous amount of the small rest of the world's population, bowed to his knees when he "asked" to be the ruler of the planet (most did because they were afraid of his giant power). Henceforth he'd be known as the King Oxygen.

    Red, I can't wait to see the finished piece. It's very much like the concept I was going to go with, or mine is yours, I'm not sure which came first. Hopefully I'll be able to make this round.
