Pappy-R: I work where I live...or live where I work. Either way, HELP!
a madman: I'm boring. I drive.
Jube: Work sounds too much like work, try not to touch the stuff.
Mr. Lake: Teleporter...if only cars on the freeway could tele-frag.

Pappy-R: Oh there is no way they're getting to even touch the flag! nasty little flag touchers!
a madman: Same strategy I always use, "shoot anything that's the other color." I usually waste most of my rockets sniping at banners and lights on the way to the enemy flag...
Jube: Spam, but not of the rocket variety. I leave a trail of canned meat in my wake like little landmines of stinky love!
Mr. Lake: May some heavenly power strike me down if I am wrong when I say there are absolutely NO strategic multiplayer games anywhere...ever. Need proof? (BLUETEAM1: Someone get the flag! BLUETEAM2: F**K YOU I HAVE A GIANT PENIS!)

Huh?

Pappy-R: Last one I used was QERadiant. Yup, been a while.
a madman: I still swear by QuArK... never read a manual or looked at an online tutorial and I can map with it. I can't even place a freaking BRUSH in Radiant.
Jube: We'll take the "I suck at mapping" option and multiply that by ten.
Mr. Lake: Not to one-up "railed_by_himself", but before Radiant I used Virtus DMM. It scaled to units of 10 instead of 8 and was horible with texture alignment, but the brush properties editor was heaven.

Pappy-R: Trinity...come back Trinity!
a madman: For once I agree with Pappy.
Jube: I'm betting Lake is in charge of organizing the weekly hot dog eating contests.
Mr. Lake: That's a good question...since by now everyone knows that Trinity has been canceled...what am I doing?

Mr. Lake: Bathe in sweet gib shower of victory!

25.3%

Pappy-R: "Chthon" is simply the result of a type-o, the original name "Herb" has now been lost in the echoes of time.
a madman: Greek khthon, "earth." See also chthonic. C'mon, people, where's your vocabulary?
Jube: I'm going with French for $200, Alex!
Mr. Lake: Chthon me this...


Who are these people, anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
a madman is the official PQ Content Manager, and when he's not doing that he's insulting people in the Mailbag. It's a good job.
Jube runs the morning shift around here, and posts more news before 9 am than most people do all day.
Mr. Lake is the creative director over at Lake's Digital Arts. We keep him in a cage and poke him with sticks until he makes maps. Then we poke him again.
