Potential Villains

Hooded Terror - Mysterious woman dressed in all black, including executioners hood. Her gang all dress just like her. Assassination and robbery seem to be their main focus.

Doctor Ghoul - Scientific Genius who developed a process which turns a normal human in a super strong and nearly bulletproof mind controlled minion of his. They do whatever he orders them to, but the process lasts only a few hours. Afterwards the people subjected to the process have no memory of the past 24 hours. Mostly his Ghouls are used to steal equipment, kidnap other scientists and kill a few.

Frost - Professional Hitman who can coat himself in a thin, but super tough layer of ice. He kills his targets with icicles which melt, leaving them in a puddle of water, and is his calling card.

Queen of Diamonds - Professional thief who steals expensive jewelry and electronics. Her calling card is a queen of diamonds playing card. She dresses in a red bodysuit with a white diamond on the face of her mask.

Eldritch Archer

Kind of seeing the Edlritch Archer's costume as black leather with red gloves, boots and belt. His quiver would also be red. There would also be silver mystical symbols sewn into the costume. He'd probably wear a black hood and red mask. Bow would be black with silver mystical symbols.

Mystic Archer ramblings

Vaguely mulling over the mystic archer superhero. Basically he'd have a magic bow that transforms regular arrows into magic trick arrows with the utterance of a magic word. Nothing hugely original, but a different twist on the usual archer hero.

I'd need to come up with mystic sounding words for the various trick arrows:
* Acid Arrow
* Bola Arrow
* Cable/Grapple Arrow
* Electric/Stun Arrow
* Exploding Arrow
* Flare Arrow
* Net Arrow
* Smoke Arrow
* Sonic Arrow
* Tear Gas Arrow
* Flaming Arrow
* Ice Arrow

Then I need to come up with the name of the character. Leaning towards Eldritch Archer or Arrow.

CSI/Flash Crossover Dream

Had a dream last night that Barry Allen moved to Las Vegas and joined the cast of C.S.I. The dream was kind of an overview of the season. From what I recall he moved to Vegas due to a rise in costumed crime there. He joined the main cast of CSI. Working crime scenes and such. The Sheriff ordered the team to find out who The Flash was. So while trying to solve other crimes Barry was also finding ways of messing up the investigation into the Flash without being obvious about it. By the end of the season the main CSI cast had figured it out, but agreed to keep the secret since Barry was making a difference and doing good as the Flash.

Avalon Bay

So I've pretty much settled on Avalon Bay, Florida as being the home to the Midnight Avenger in the 1940s and the Amethyst Avenger in the 2000s.

*Avalon Bay* is a city founded by pirates on the Atlantic coast of Florida in the 1700s. By the time Florida become a state in 1845 Avalon Bay was a thriving port city, but crime was still rife in the city.

Mysticism has long been a part of Avalon Bay and it is rumored the Pirates the founded Avalon Bay were secretly Warlocks. In 1846 the city even had it's own set of Witch trials. The then Mayor, James Winchester, was proved to be a Warlock and hanged. After this magic became a part of the criminal underground of Avalon Bay.

Midnight Avenger (Formerly Amethyst Avenger in 1940s)

Vaguely contemplating a few other hero types for the 1940s era stories of the Midnight Avenger:

*The Ghoul* - A man cursed with grey skin tone of a dead man after a horrible chemical accident. He seemingly can not be killed and has become a one man war on crime in Chicago.

*Doctor Sebastian Marvel* - Also known as Doc Marvel. He is the CEO of Marvelous Industries, producers of many wonderful new technologies. He is an adventurer, scientist, engineer, and businessman. He is skilled in nearly ever form of combat known to man and some known only on other worlds. He, an his team the Marvelous <How many I come up with> travel the world, fight crime, find lost civilizations and just generally make the world a better place. <He is this settings Doc Savage equivalent. Need to work up his version of Doc Savages people>

*The Nightmare* - A man clocked in mystery and darkness. He prowls the darkest parts of New York City and makes criminals greatest nightmares come true.

*Midnight Avenger* - AKA Marcus Marcone, a beat reporter in <City to be Named Later>. He dresses in a black fedora, trench coat, tie and pants. He wears a grey domino mask, shirt and shoes. He wields to normal looking .45 caliber pistols except for the amethyst gems in the pearl handle. The gems are some kind of mystical object that have been placed into the pistols and now instead of firing bullets they fire blasts of amethyst colored energy.

Amethyst Avenger (III)

Amethyst Avenger (III): Maria Mandell - Born 01/01/1991 in Morris, New Jersey. Loved hearing stories of her Grandfather's adventures from her Mother. Always dreamed of redeeming her Grandfather's hero name after it was ruined in the early 1980s by violent vigilante that killed criminals, cops, heroes and anyone that got in his way. In her Mother's attic she finds the old costume and enchanted pistols and vows to reclaim the identity of Amethyst Avenger, especially after rumors of new Black Claw popping up.

Dream Rambling

Had a weird dream last night. It involved a Vampire, A Werewolf and a Wizard who were all police detectives in Chicago and dealt with supernatural crimes. Each was a representative from their respective governing bodies (the Werewolf Clans, Vampire Families and Wizard Council) and they were tasked with being cops, but also acting as liaisons between the mortals and the supernatural. Any crime committed by or against supernatural beings ended up on their desks. Wish I could remember more.

Sidekicks!

Another idea that has kind of nagged at me from time to time is a story about sidekicks. Basically Main Hero realizes he can't fight the war on crime by himself and takes on a few sidekicks to train. They'd be high school or college age people. They'd have been undergoing his mentoring for a year or two when something happens to Main Hero. He vanishes/appears to die. So sidekicks are left to take up the fight against crime in the city and figure out exactly what happened to Main Hero. They'd be seeking to earn the trust of the few honest cops that trusted Main Hero and strike fear into the hearts of the major criminals.

Setting Idea

I sometimes get ideas for settings that I'm not sure I could develop too well.  I currently have one kind of brewing.  Basically take the typical fantasy world with Elves, Dwarfs, Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, Gnomes, Etc and instead of being set during a medieval-ish time period I see it set during something similar to the 1930s.  Technology is becoming more and more common due to the ease of it over technology.  A great war is brewing as an evil Empire is stirring.

I would see it mixing noir with fantasy elements.

Guides

Guides

Guides are teachers, mentors and advisers to the Knights of Order.  Many are mystics and use their abilities to protect their charges.  No one is sure when the Order of Guides started.  While their is a hierarchy to the Guides they are given freedom to find and train Knights on their own.

A few Guides have gone over to Chaos and used Chaos Magic to transform themselves into undead Liches.  They seek to destroy Knights and other Guides.  Then to used animated Skeletons and other mindless undead as minions.

Therianthropes (Were-critters)

Therianthropes

Therianthropes are humans cursed to transform into human/animal hybrids on the three nights of the full moon.  The curse is passed on not by a simple bite, but by killing and not consuming the victim.  Generally Therianthropes are aggressive/predator type animals.  Their is no cure and only silver or magic weapons can kill them.  Other weapons can harm them, but will not kill them.

[Probably more to go here later.]

Vampires

Vampires

Vampires are monsters.  They aren't romantic figures just needing to find the right person to save them.  They are monsters that need to be killed.  Their true origins are shaded in mystery, but current theory among the Guides is that they were created when a Demon consumed human blood and then that human drank the demons blood.  Now they require blood to survive.


There are Primary and Secondary Vampires.  Secondary Vampires are newly created and if they manage to survive for a year and turn someone into a Vampire after that they become a Primary Vampire. 

Primary Vampires are super humanly strong, are Immortal, heal by consuming the blood of Mortals, shapeshift into a bat, influence the weak minded and minor telekinesis.

Secondary Vampires are Immortal, heal by consuming the blood of Mortals and minor telekinesis.

Weaknesses: Sunlight weakens, but does not kill Vampires.  A wooden stake, decapitation are the only ways to kill Vampires.  They must spend a few hours a day sleeping in a coffin filled with dirt from a grave.  Entering a home without an invitation strips them of their powers and they can not harm those living in the home.  Holy symbols only work for people with true faith in them.

The World

Earth is pretty much the world as we know it.  With the exception of the weird things that go bump in the night.

The Weird is where the things that go bump in the night call home.  Parts of it look similar to Earth, but parts of it are exotic and chaotic.  This is the home of the Forces of Chaos and their goal is to bring The Weird to Earth.  Demons are creatures summoned to Earth from The Weird, Vampires, Werewolves and other such creatures are partially related to Demons.
