Title : Beneath A Distant Sun
Filename : pjw3dm4.pk3
Author : Pat "pjw" Williams
Description : Q3 FFA/tourney level

Setting the stage: The Vadrigar--the mysterious Quake 3 Arena Masters--have been watching you, and are
unusually impressed with your skill. The Faceless Ones have decided to test you with an entirely new challenge.
You are transported to an arena like no other you have ever faced. A royal female of the Klesk race has been trapped
in her lair by a cave-in, along with her clutch of eggs, and is out of food, having long since devoured her
human slaves in her desperation. Her hunger and rage are gnawing at her, as is her worry about her hatchlings
that are soon to arrive. The eggs have been growing in the rich moistness of the eggpool, but the young must
eat flesh when they are born . . . .

Can you beat the mother Klesk and the other gladiators who have joined you, or will your bloody gibs feed the Klesk young?
