In the small English town of Bradford, the residents are having a problem, a problem involving strange shadows that move through the night. They slither down the dark streets, peering into windows and then vanish only to appear again the next night. The local police ignore the reports so the mayor calls Teddy and his girlfriend, two North American paranormal hunters who dabble in the occult and have tame shadow magic. They specialize in exorcisms, warding against spells, curses and spirits and they can even vanquish would-be demons. When our characters arrive however, they find a much darker, evil plan about to unfold. How Did I Get Here?
She was a beautiful quiet girl who was far from home after getting a scholarship to a school for her choosing. Now in her second semester, she's adjusted to the campus life and keeps her grades high. A few parties here but most days she's at the library, the same library where that boy disappeared three years ago. People said he vanished in a puff of smoke, some say a blinding light but no one knows for sure. The police found no trace of him and three years late there are still no definite answers to where he went or where he was. She's studying late one night when nearby a book from a shelf falls to the floor and when he goes to pick it up, she finds all the pages empty. No title, no Author, no words save for two on the first page. "Join me?". Jokingly, she writes the word "Yes" and suddenly a blinding light. The next thing she knows, she's falling from the sky and she lands in a deep spring of water. Swimming to the surface she see's a man dressed in odd clothes on the back of what looks like an enormous house cat. The man in the same man who vanished three years ago, transported to a world of magic, monsters and utter danger. His journey has already begun, now he must help her start hers as they travel through mountains, marshes, swamps, oceans and continents to find a fabled wizard who can send them back home. First they must bring her to the Alter so she can choose her powers and help her survive through these harsh,strange lands.Echoes Taken
"Hello?" It was a simple question as the man walking from his hospital room wondered where everybody was, the halls were empty, the power out and he couldn't hear any voices. He hits the streets in his hospital gown and finds vacant, car filled streets, newspapers blowing in the wind and wild animals prowling the streets. The year is now 2077 and he doesn't know his name, where he is or what's happened, let alone how long he's been in the hospital for. Two months later he has dubbed himself Ethan and he's been surviving as best he can, the wild animals which have escaped from zoos or come to the city for food are the only threat...until the people start arriving. The people aren't normal, they are bloodthirsty, vicious and highly prone to violence but they look normal and harmless except for deep red eyes. Ethan has seen them, traveling in packs silently and bedding down at night in a kind of a coma type sleep. Afraid he's alone and highly outnumbered against animal and man, he is surprised to finally meet another normal person. A beautiful woman who is cautious of him and has been living on her own for much longer, she doesn't trust him but they are all they have right now.That Fucking Cabin Taken
The one time of the year when Sam was younger, god how he dreaded it. The packing, the mosquitoes, the odd sounds at night, the chopping wood...he hated it. It was his Father's Cabin, way out in the middle of nowhere near a huge lake surrounded by trees and neighbors to many other people who spent their summers in mosquito land. That was years ago and Sam parent's had passed on, leaving the Cabin to him which he now had to return to. He must decide whether to sell it or keep it and he's got a pretty good idea of what he'll do. That is until he arrives meets his neighbor, the pretty girl who is living alone and won't share the reason why. Sam finds himself cleaning and repairing the cabin rather than tearing it down, he finds himself in fact living there full time as he tries to get closer to the lonely young woman.The Small Town
The small town was small enough to have the basics like a grocery store, a video store, a mechanic, a church and an elementary school. The population was just under 700 which meant the cows in the farmers fields outnumbered the people. Every body knew everybody and they were all polite. The old people sat on their porches, the local kids played in parks, the teens rode bikes around town and the parents fixed up the houses on the weekends. It was picture perfect, that is until the town became isolated. With out warning a gun shot rang out and the butcher fell dead in the street, then the pastor was shot dead by an unknown gunman who people didn't see, they only heard the high power shot ring through the small town. The townsfolk were scared as a more people began dropping like flies, they began trying to flee but the landmines stationed on the one way road out of town stopped them. There are people still alive, hiding indoors and not venturing out, keeping quiet as they hear isolated gun shots go off. It's up to the few capable people left to find the gunman or gunmen and stop them and then find out why their small picture perfect town was sent to slaughter.All That Glitters
He does not carry a whip, he does not raid tombs and he's never been anywhere uncharted, but he is a treasure hunter. His expertise is in finding and appraising old treasures dating back to before Christ. He travels the world to find them and can't resist a little danger or mystery. When he receives a call from a young woman in Rome about a missing family artifact, he's on the next flight. But Rome holds many secrets and they'll have to work together to fend off arms dealers, rival treasure seekers and even the Church. After Midnight
Three in the morning was a dangerous time to be out and if you were unfortunate enough to work the night shift, walk home from the bar or be delivering the paper...chances were that you're heart never stopped beating. You could hear them, scurrying across the roof tops, rasping in the alleyways, howling in the parks...and sometimes, sometimes you'd even see something skirt across the road or see a shadow from the corner of your eye. Every night at Midnight they came, Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, Poltergeists and Beasts, all with on goal...feed. They hid mostly, taking lone walkers at night, grabbing a jogger or snagging a pizza guy and they only feared one man: Kape Griever. Kape's Mother had been a Vampire granting him agility and stealth, his Father a demon, giving him strength a durability, the only mortal capable of fighting these creatures in the thick of the night. Kape is tired though, he can't fight this war on his own, his crippled Brother makes weapons for him, swords of pure silver, bullets made with UV casings, Holy water grenades and sharpened mini crosses to throw...but Kape needs help and after the Werewolf Crawss had crippled his Brother...he needs someone who can fight. He smells her one night...a young lady with gifts like him although she doesn't seem to know it yet, he'll have to train her and train her fast because the word on the street is that the things that go bump in the night are joining forces...and the sun only stays up for so long.The Warriors Of Seasons
The gods were dying, the four nations knew it and they knew what they must do. Prophecy spoke of sending two from each nation to battle for marriage and supremacy, the two strongest warriors would breed a new god. Eight champions set out: Two from the North where harsh winds, razor snow and titanic mountains reign. Two companions as cold as the climate they come from, wearing thick furs and carrying weapons as tough as their lands and magic just as cold. Two from the South where the land is warm and bright, where the sun shines late all day and rain is rarely seen. Two companions set out, fire in their blood as they head for the center of the Earth where the capital stands, wearing light armor and carrying razor sharp weapons as hot as the sun and the same magic within. Two from the East where the ocean lies and sprays the lands with it's salty mist, the gulls cry can be heard all day long. Two companions head to the center carrying medium armor and weapons damp and thick, the power of water in their veins.Two from the West where it's autumn all year round, cool and warm and pretty colours abound. Two companions set out, leather armor, guns and whips at their hips and the the magic of the wind as their command. Soon, they will all meet in the middle and the two last survivors will marry and bring a new god to this world, but when they can't conceive and have fallen very much in love, the entire world will come for them. (The goal here is to each play a character from a different continent and have them win and fall in love. The people from the North use big hammers and swords, wear fur and have ice and water magic. The people from the south where very little armor and use small thin swords and dagger, fire magic is their specialty. The people from the East have the power of water and use hard steel weapons such as maces and clubs. The people from the West are more or less cowboys. They have pistols and whips and use wind magic.) Bad Super Hero
During the day he went to school, hung out with his buddies, played video games at his apartment and sometimes took a nap, but at night, at night he donned his disguise and took out the criminals using the super abilities he had. He did his best, stopped a robbery, or a fleeing criminal but sometimes, just sometimes he'd level a street in the process of knock down a building. The citizens were happy, the mayor was indifferent to him and the Senator was furious. The senator calls in a hero who works for him, her goal is to stop my character by bringing him in but what they both don't know is that they already know each other, they in fact, share an apartment together. During the day he paints her toenails or rubs her back, she makes him lunch or rubs his neck, they're friends and damn good ones, at night he's destroying bad guys and cars (by accident of course) and she's chasing him down. After weeks to playing cat and mouse, his identity is revealed when she finally catches him. Will she bring him, will she join him...little do they know, it doesn't matter because the Senator will kill them both and once they know that, the real hunt it truly on.The Happy Couple

He's worked alone for years and even though his superiors are his best friends, he rebels at every turn. When he's assigned a new detective to be his partner he begins to protest but a grisly string of murders begin with taunting mementos aimed at our detectives left at the crime scene.
