Welcome to Well of Souls
WOS, the Well of Souls Gaming Clan, still proudly carries on the Quake2 LOX legacy. The Q2:LOX mod is now maintained and updated by QwazyWabbit, with contributions from LoX coding legend TheLopez and clan founder Phlem. Windows LOX mod DLL's, Linux .so's and Lox game content, including many WOS-created Q2 maps, textures, and sound files, remain freely available to all, served up through the generosity and expertise of Deacon.
After eleven years, it's still all about the fun. We remain an all-ages gaming clan. We are here to promote a positive gaming environment. Yes, we do hunt llamas free of charge! In addition to Quake 2, we also play BF2 Bad Company, other flavors of BF2, Silent Hunter 5, CIV IV and CIV V, Half-Life 2, plus lots of other recent, legacy, and specialty games. Enjoy our servers, forums, and other resources, masterfully facilitated by MrCCTV and the rest of our fine crew.
Q2Cafe Contest 8 Maps
The Quake2 Cafe has wrapped up its 8th contest. See details here:
The winning maps from the contest are now loaded on the Loxophilia Q2:LOX server and can be map-voted by any player. Map names, in winning order, are:

Enjoy! And thanks to the Q2 Cafe gang and mappers for making these available.
WOS Q2 LOX GeoCaching Contest
WOS Q2-LOX GeoCache Contest
WOS will be hosting a special contest starting on Halloween (Oct. 31) and running through November and up until December 23rd. The goal of the contest is to find the MOST special locations of map object caches in the map collection on our Loxophilia server.
Who can enter? Everyone! (except for Phlem, the contest admin)
What are the prizes? First prize will be a $25 gift certificate. Second and third prize will be announced at the contest start.
How does it work? We will put special objects, to be declared at the start of the contest, inside our standard maps on the maplist, as well as on several dozen other maps which are on the server. Players can map-vote to switch to these various maps in search of the special objects (or specially grouped objects, such as a "star" formation of rocket launchers). When you find one of the special objects or object formations,make a note of the map name and run the "view pos" command to get the x/y/z coordinates of the location (approximate values are fine). Before the end of the contest run, send your list of "finds" to Phlem (special email address to be provided). He will tally the results and announce the prizes by New Years Eve.
Need Help? A special WOS forum thread will be started to help participants of the contest in case they have trouble.

Even though we are finished upgrading the site, we will never be done! Today I took some time to work on enhancing a couple of features.
New and Improved
The Well of Souls website has gone through some extensive remodeling. Blood, sweat, and tears have gone into the build out, we even had to change out a few mice and keyboards. But the outcome is well worth it. Please take a tour of our new site.
