Close of Encounters of the Random Kind was a recurring feature of the roleplaying magazine Shadis written by Jolly R. Blackburn. Issue 17's article focused on West End Games' The World of Indiana Jones roleplaying game which included a list of artifact and location ideas for players along with a map to the Tomb of Turases III commissioned for the magazine by Ron Jacobs.

Although the Indiana Jones brand was used with permission, Close of Encounters of the Random Kind was published outside of the Lucasfilm Licensing process and, as such, is unlikely to have a canon designation.
