    Pertaining to the writing of Howard Philips Lovecraft

    He basically invented horror as far as Im concerned

    And really shaped Quake (Elder Gods, Chthon, Shub-Niggurath, and so on). This influence was brought in by Sandy Peterson who had created the Call of Chthulu table top rpg in the 80s.

          Bank; are there any descriptions of that city at all so as to stylistically guide a map based on such ?

          Yup, thats the guy I was thinking of.

          Monster; I think his style more of guided their creation... Take note of the shambler and vore lacking eyes (apparently fiends have eyes, but they seem cooler if you dont think of them as having any).

            You look close enough at the shambler's dead body, you can see two TINY black dots above the teeth. I discovered this when I was bored one day and wondering if shamblers had eyes. I believe it is the same for vores, not sure though.

                Another note from my brilliant ranking idea. The top poster should have the ranking "Quake Marine" 8^)

                  Death Knight; Fine then, from now on all discussions of Wizard of Oz must leave out Ray Bolger's character in the film because this is my name. Lighten up, its just two words put together, and common words at that. You play the game that already uses the name after all.

                        The Strogg are the alien race of cyborgs that you fight in Quake 2.

                          This is QuakeOne.com

                          - edit, besides I'd much prefer silly names as ranks. The monsters names is just a good start.

                          btw it's 1 a for scrag.
