The Coven was an independent computer games developer with its roots in the Doom and Quake communities. Originally founded by John "Gestalt" Bye in late 1996, The Coven worked on a free Doom II add-on before moving on to Quake and going commercial in the summer of 1997. The Coven was closed in the winter of 1999, and all their work is now available for free.

Quake II: Online Aftershocks by Dan Elektro As amateur programmers create their own modifications, Quake II is changing -- for the better.
Here's my version of Laalaa from the great British children's TV show Teletubbies. I've tried to keep the character of the character, the animations are fairly true-to-life and the weapon strapped to the arm is Tubby-Tech styled in blue tubbitanium metal.
The_DM, creator of CTF+ and QTracker and BMOC at the Gunslingers clan, sends word of a LAN party within driving distance of my house. Wish I wasn't moving into the house this weekend. :P On July 26, 1997 there will be another Perry, Ohio LAN DeathFest. The carnage begins at 11:45AM and runs for 12 hours. Admission is $10, which gets you pizza and drinks.
The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (22.214.171.124:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two.
Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (126.96.36.199:27911), Wireplay (188.8.131.52:27999) and EISA (184.108.40.206:27930) being the pick of the pack.
GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (220.127.116.11:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.
Quake II LIVES!!
