Welcome to The Sentinel's Playground!
The Sentinel's Playground is now a free, automated server host for Zandronum.
The Sentinel's Playground existed since 2010 however it was shut down due to lack of funds.
The Sentinel's Playground used to host a small set of deathmatch and ctf servers that were not popular or were underground in efforts to get them played.
But now we have decided to allow all of you to run almost anything you want on our hardware. Best of all it's FREE!
This service is also using BestBot (the same one that BestEver uses, so the commands are the same :D)
The Sentinel's Playground was built around 2010. It became a cluser that had meaning. The cluster was named after a song known as \"The Sentinel\" By Judas Priest.
The server was also home to All fear the sentinel Deathmatch. Both of these had meaning in the songs chours. Those lyrics were:
Why use [TSPG]
Well, since we are similar to BE, the same sort of features apply. Here they are for your reference!
  • Starting a server takes a few seconds
  • Upload your own WAD/PK3 files and play the game your way
  • Even if you turn off your computer/client, your server will stay up
  • RCON access as well as log access to your server, granting you complete control
  • Gigabit network to ensure your servers don't lag
The only difference is location. Our server is located at New Jersey, USA. The website is hosted on the node Painkiller
We have a forum!
It can be found here!
