This match takes place in the world of National Treasure at the start of the first film.
Two of the greatest explorers known are pushed onto a race to uncover the truth behind two great mysteries, but only one can claim the glory on pain of death. John Adams Gates didn’t have the opening discussion with his grandson. Instead, he wrote “The secret lies with Charlotte” onto two $1 bills, and mailed one to Indy and Nathan respectively. Both have been under surveillance, and are each attacked by three hooded figures armed with knives as soon as they read the message on the bill. Inspection of the hooded figures reveals a diary page that leads to the second film’s plot, but reveal no other relevant clues.
Which of the two will be able to solve both plots first?
Nathan is in his current incarnation, while Indy’s version is the one at the start of The Last Crusade. The same organization that sent the groups to intercept the packages will be attempting to stop the explorers with lethal force every step of the way. The spotlight will protect whoever solves the mysteries, but the organization will kill the other immediately to prevent further exposure.
