Sony Online Entertainment today announced a contest to find a real-life version of "EverQuest II" heroine Antonia Bayle, Queen of Qeynos.

The competition, called "Quest for Antonia," encourages women (sorry, fellas) who think they look like the fetching brunette to send in pictures to the official contest Web site beginning May 17, just enough time to give potential entrants time to dye their hair and hit the gym for that only-in-games figure.

The contest will be co-sponsored by men's gadget monthly Stuff Magazine and culminate in Las Vegas on Aug. 13. Semi-finalists will be selected from the initial group through online voting, and five finalists will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Vegas courtesy of SOE and Stuff. A pageant-style event complete with swimsuit competition and an interview session ("Peace across Norrath" anyone?) will crown the winner at the Palms Hotel & Casino.

Quest for Antonia

In addition to being the object of desire of every 20th-level dwarf online, the winner will receive a one-year modeling contract with SOE, a photo spread in Stuff and additional prizes.

"EverQuest II" is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in a fantasy realm. Players go on quests, battle monsters, and find treasure while powering up their character. Actress Heather Graham ("Boogie Nights," "Swingers") voices Antonia in the game.

"EverQuest II" is rated T for teen and retails for $29.99.
