#414 – The Secret Land – Kensai trains Ryutsume, and Compass counsels and helps Jay Harris, who the Guardians set up a trust for. The team discusses the Web and their major criminal activity. After hearing about the threat of Count Hephaestus and receiving coordinates from the GamesMaster, pilot Hammond flies Angelus, Kensai, Araneae, Rune, and Paradigm in the Guardian Angel to the Amazon basin in Brazil, and the five enter the Secret Land on foot. Journeying into a lush jungle teeming with extinct life, they are able to fend off attacks by a Pteranodon and a powerful Tyrannosaurus rex. Hearing cries, they come across a large battle between many primitive humans and lizard-like Saurids. They watch and observe from a ridge until other beasts move in. After preventing a sneak attack by five saber-toothed Smilodon, the heroes thwart the onslaught of a gigantic Spinosaurus. As the two sides separate, the adventurers grab one of the unconscious men to question.

#415 – Count Down! – Led towards their target by the primitive, the group treks through the jungle. They interrupt an attack on a mother and two children by a large pack of Raptors, but the dinosaurs quickly kill the savages, so the team disengages. After a long hike, they find the ruins of a temple, with Count Hephaestus sitting on a stone throne, flanked by Black Bow, the recently-discovered WW II Nazi villain Donner, and five Flame Fiends. Angelus knocks out the mastermind and Araneae wraps up Black Bow, but the captive Count teleports away. After destroying all of the Flame Fiends, the heroes take down Donner and Rune creates a gateway, through which the adventurers transport their captives to a secure containment facility.

I'm still running things using 2.1, as it's a time-consuming process to convert characters over.

#416 – Hell on Earth – The Guardians Council decides to keep lines of communication open with the N.S.A. and the GamesMaster. C.H.E.S.S. alerts the team about intense supernatural activity in Chinese Tibet, so Araneae, Angelus, Rune, and Kensai meet with the Queen of C.H.E.S.S. in London. She explains that the hidden locale seems to be warded against magical and electronic surveillance, and tells how a squad of Valkyries were chased away from a small village there by voices within a strange, unearthly fog. The four travel via the Guardian Angel to the Tibetan Plateau, where they meet the friendly natives of Shangri-La, a remote community nestled in a deep ravine. A creepy green fog surrounds them when they reach the central marketplace, and a voice warns them to leave. Angelus telepathically allows the group to converse with the stranger, who masquerades as benevolent entities protecting the villagers. The heroes continue to probe, with Rune magically sensing the location of the sorcerer as well as a nearby gateway. Angelus discerns dishonesty from the mage, and Rune counters one of his spells. Combat is joined, and five ghostly Stingwraiths fly to aid Professor Hell. The two sides trade volleys, but the sheer volume of cast spells leaves the villain exhausted. He compels hundreds of the natives to flee towards the cliffs, but Araneae and Rune make protective walls of webbing and trees. The team then heroically focuses on saving the lives of innocents, allowing Professor Hell to get away. They investigate the portal, finding stairs inside a chest leading down into a small, empty pocket dimension. Araneae also finds a sophisticated surveillance device hidden in a relic inside the same tent.
