"It's fragtime for the Dust Puppy."

"Today kicks off the UserFriendly.org and Loki Software Quake III Arena Contest. A leading online entertainment destination for the IT technical community, UserFriendly.org is sponsoring this exciting contest to showcase the creative and design skills of their legion of fans."

"Contestants will create and modify "skins" and levels based on the cast of characters from the UserFriendly.org episodic comic strip for use with Quake III Arena, the blockbuster 3D, first-person perspective, shooter video game developed by id Software. Skins dictate the appearance of the player within the game environment, while the levels define the appearance and layout of the space used by the battling players inside the game. There will also be a bonus category for people brave enough to venture into the realm of modeling, which is creating the figure or body for the skins to cover."
