Title : Tandoori Despair
Filename : pjw3quickie1.pk3
Author : Pat "pjw" Williams
Description : Q3 tourney/FFA level

Note: This map is the first in, hopefully, a series of "quickie" maps. The "quickie" designation means that it was made in one sitting at Q3Radient--from sitting down with no idea whatsoever in mind, through various changes, tweaking play, making a bot file, and making the final pk3. This one took about eight hours (which would have been much less if I hadn't spent SO much time arguing with Q3Rs screwed up cap function--grrrr). (I also spent a few hours the next day doing some modifications, per the great feedback at the Quake3World editing forum.)

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo,
and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones
at the back that are killed first.

This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because
the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving
by the regular attrition of the weakest members.

In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as
the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know,
kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and
weakest brain cells first.

In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker
brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
