Indiana Jones and the Caverns of Quivara
by Kyle Cossairt

Russian cutthroat Micha Gorvanic, flanked by his marauding band of Cossacks, secretly venture into the mountains of Central America armed with machine guns and a treasure map. Stolen from a sunken Spanish galleon, the treasure map, carved into the ships helm, pinpoints the location of Quivara, one of the Seven Cities of Gold. A metropolis so rich, it could fund the Russian's nuclear weapons program for centuries.
Indiana Jones with a feisty senorita by his side must thwart the Russians, a serpent wielding vixen and a murderous antiquities collector in search of Quivara, to expose a legend and save humanity.
 
Indiana Jones and the Shanghai Scroll
by Ryan Cox

Dr. Jones searches for the Scroll of Shanghai; an artifact giving Alexander the Great, Caesar, and Ghengis Kahn the deceptively overwhelming power to build the largest Empires in History. Indy finds the artifact's resting place by watching hidden Shaolin sundials in moonlight, only to find the scroll taken by Napoleon, centuries earlier. Simultaneously, his excavation is overrun by the Chinese, who are in cahoots with Russia to end the Cold War as the only super power. Jones finds and uses the scroll against Russia and America on St. Helena Island, so he can destroy it, fulfilling a promise to his father.
 
Indiana Jones and the Fate of the Film
by Devin Kowalski

Indiana Jones must locate the mysterious "Temple of Time" to create a doorway into an era of filmmaking when computer generated characters, sets and stunts were not essential to a film's production. However, ruthless studio executives have followed Indy through the portal and plan to destroy what little remains of classic filmmaking and the golden era of movies as we know it. Will Indy be able to stop these villains in time to save the fourth film? Or will humanity be forced to witness Renders of the Lost Ark?
(Note: simply in jest, no offence to filmmakers Spielberg or Lucas.)

There, a society has risen, consisting of all the vessels that have vanished over the years and the people that vanished within them.

While Indy celebrates his connection with actual history, he battles with "civilians" against "military rebels" seeking domination.
