====Targetname, Target and Killtarget====
Quake features a very basic form of event scripting via triggers that can be placed in levels and used to activate other entities. For example, the [[func_button]] entity is used to make a usable button object in a level which will trigger a targeted event when pressed. This event system is not limited to the obvious trigger entities and buttons - monsters can fire events when they are killed, and items when they are picked up. In order to use this system, the keys targetname and target must be understood.

The '''targetname''' key is used to establish a name for an entity so that it can be linked to triggers that are targeting it. The value of targetname needn't be unique, though multiple entities using the same targetname will all be activated at once by anything that triggers them.
