There is a Quake III for Morphos/PPC ?

No, Pegasos has nothing to do with atari, it is a micro ATX ppc board
designed by Genisi, which is made of thendic and bplan, bplan being
where most of the phase5 people now work. Phase5 being the company who
brought us the the amiga powerup boards, which where dual cpu, ppc &
m68k expansion boards for amiga hardware, better known under the
linux/apus name on these lists. Morphos is the amiga inspired os that
runs on it.

Also, it is pegasos, not pegasus, which apparently also existed, since a
pegasus.cf was recently purged from the X cvs tree.
