If you have any good ideas for plots you think might make a good Indy movie, place them here! They might make good MOCs.

I always thought that the search for The garden of Eden would make a cool Indiana Jones plot! Because you could build the angel with the fire sword for some sort of a trap at the end of the movie, you know how each of thr baddies get wooped in the end!

What about the Happy Valley from Dinosaur Eggs? I think Mccoy really meant that to be Eden. An Eden plot would be cool, though.

... Fire sword?

I have several ideas. One is based on Pandora's Box/Jar. Sounds lame, but hear me out. The end could be on some island; Malta might work, and the Nazis could open the box looking for some kind of power source. Evil spirits could come out (like in Emperor's Tomb), and possess a bunch of corpses to create a skeleton army. They could rip the villain to shreds, and- here's where it get's cool. According to legend, at the bottom of the box was hope. In this adventure, as Indy is about to be dragged off to his doom by a hoarde of zombies, he notices a golden glint at the bottom of the box. He checks, and it's the seal of Solomon, which, according to legend, was a ring with the power to imprison demons or genies. He puts it on and beats the heck out of the zombies, and hops onto the deck on the departing German U-boat. He mans a machine gun and attempt to fight them off as they swim towards him and try to climb aboard...

What do you think? Worth MOCing?

I also have a couple ideas for spinoffs of Infernal Machine and Emperor's Tomb...

Awesome idea!! You should build it! I like the idea about how Indy fights off the demons and how they kill the nazi's! They should make a real movie with that plot!

Thanks. I just have one problem. I'd like a Maltese tomb of mysterious origin, and it would work well here, but it would also work well with my Tablet of Destinies plot... Hmm...

Another idea I had involved indy trying to find King Sol's jewels after the Aetherium collapsed so that he could use them as keys to open a Sri Lankan temple containing a huge diamond from the lost kingdom of Kumari Kandam.

This might be cool because the jewels might feel similar to the Shankara Stones or the Allegorhai Horhai eggs.

Anyway, any advice for my Pandora's Jar plot if I decide to make it?

What about the introductory adventure?

A Hy-Brazil sighting?

The Trishula of Shiva?

You don't need an introductory adventure. But, how would you make the WHOLE story in one MOC?

Well, obviously, I'll be making multiple MOCs.

Any ideas though?

In Aztec mythology the Aztecs came from an island called "Aztlan". I haven't read of any scientists making the connection, but... Atlantis?

You can take that idea, by the way.

Really? Interesting! Perhaps it could be an early Atlantean colony on Malta...

Got any other ideas for me?

I'd love for you not to use this, but close to the end of WWII, Indy finds a 15 foot javelin in a Greek archaeological dig. Later, from other glyphs found in the dig, he realizes it is Zeus's lighting bolt! So does a Japanese spy, and when he steals it, the base is located in Hiroshima, where it is destroyed by the A. bomb.

Don't use it 'cuz I want it for another story, but like it?

Yeah, but don't worry. I already had a good idea centering around thunderbolts, though there would be Indian ones as well.

Y' know, though, Infernal Machine had thunderbolts as Marduk's weapon...

How about Indy in a slighltly more... domestic adventure in the back-alleys Chinatown. The object is "The Bones of the Dragon" which may or may not be bone of a rare Chinese dinosaur killed only five hundred years ago. The bones have astounding medical powers, and Indy isn't the only one after the bones: The Shadow.

It would be awesome! An Indy-Pulp crossover!

Dude, that would be cool. Think it would make a better novel or comic?

I was thinking an extended MOC plotline.

A good one would be a sort of "White Indians" Indy adventure. For those not versed in Jungle Lore, there were a lot of stories of "white Indians" all over the Americas. Conquestadors supposedly found an Aztec room full of fair, light-skinned natives, any number of accounts. Decendants of ancient exploration of the Americas?

Also, there is a Louis L'Amour story called "Pirates with Wings" about a Indy-style lost city in the Amazon, so rich, as one character puts it, "it would make Cuzco look like a piggy bank". I CALLED IT! MY PRECIOUS!

Wait wait wait! Dude! I just remebered this! I read in an old book in the public library about Lake Gueverta, former home of "El Dorado". The local Indians would somtimes through life-size, solid gold statues into the lake. No one's been able to get at much of the gold, but it said in the book there was a much as $3,000,000,000 in the lake. The book was published in the '60s, so with inflation, who knows how much it would be worth today. Also, a gold artifact is worth three times as much as just the weight of the gold. *Whitle*

This from the biggest fan of Seven Veils I've ever seen? What happened to your memory, man?

As for your Dragon Bones idea, I think the old comics might've done something similar, but I could be wrong.

Have you read any of the Martin Caiden books? Not the best of the series, but thought I'd ask.

Man, I wish I could read German so that I could read the Hohlbein novels.

You know? I think the old comics did have, in one of their best plots, an Atlantean colony in the Congo with fair-skinned natives.

The old comics really were pretty good. I hear a later one has one of the very few Indy adventures where the myths were fake (the one in question being El Dorado, I think, and it was an Incan trap for the conquistidors or something).

What about the artifacts with supposed cuneiform or pre-cuneiform inscriptions found in South America? I know it's similar to Seven Veils, but...

HEY! I've heard that story before! I've always wanted to get out there and recover that gold.
