How to Create an Amazing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Shrine

This instructable will teach you how to create an amazing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars shrine. In case you've been living under a rock (or in Minnesota), Quake Wars is the latest release from PC giant id, and it is a fantastic online team based FPS. This game's been around for a while, and it went up for preorder this summer. I preordered it, and when I looked inside the box, there was a poster and two "collectible Quake Wars cards." I promptly put these up on my wall right over my monitor. To my delight, when I bought the Limited Collector's edition of Quake Wars last week, there were 10 more of these large, glossy cards to put on my wall! I had the materials for a veritable shrine! This instructable will show you the best way to create this shrine, given that you have all 12 cards (but if you only have 10, it'll still look nice)

Read on, Quake Wars fans, read on.

Step 1: Gather Materials

What you need:

-The poster and two collector's cards from the preorder of Quake Wars
-The 10 additional cards that were included in the Limited Collector's Edition of Quake Wars
-The PC Gamer cover featuring Quake Wars
-The ad from that issue that has the same picture with some screenshots
-Tape or thumbtacks

That's all folks!

Step 2: Tape All the Stuff Up

Now, I recommend that you create this shrine on the wall above and behind your monitor like I did, but it's up to you. Take the poster and tape it up about a foot above your monitor (or not.) Now, tape up the PC Gamer cover and ad above it, centered (mine's not). Next, sort your cards into GDF vehicles and Strogg vehicles. Because the Strogg in the poster is on the left side, tape up the Strogg cards on the left side of the poster, starting level with the PC gamer article and continuing downwards to circle around the bottom corner of the poster. The Strogg cards will go until approximately the middle of the poster. Do the same thing with the GDF cards. There's also a rectangular sheet of paper with the Map Objectives that you can tape up on the right or left side of the shrine, if you like, included in the Collector's Edition and the Regular Edition (I believe). Also, if you really want to, you could tape or tack up the Desktop Map Guide, but I believe that the Desktop Map Guide is meant for your Desktop, so it should stay there.

Step 3: You're Finished!

Congratulations, you now have a shrine to one of the greatest FPS games of all time! Cherish it forever.

I know this is a very basic instructable, but I think it's a cool idea, and it's my first one. Don't hate :)

    this feels like a bit of a waste of high quality, collectable cards and packaging!

    I was kinda expecting like a proper shrine, not an instructble on how to put things on a wall i wanted to see little figures, maybe a reconstruction of one of the maps, like hidden in a cupboard like some sort of cult. (nechance you could start work on one?) Good work, i like that you ordered them, and not just bung them up there. Mite be worth investing in a big glass clip frame.

    I'd love to have a shrine like that except for a few things. -I don't think they make QW figurines -I don't have a place near my computer to put it where I would look at it frequently -As for a reconstruction, I suck at all types of models and crafts projects.
