SALON ON “SHEYLA” [Author: lum]

Today’s Salon has an article on the EQ suicide hoax and the fallout that resulted from it.

A week later, however, it’s beginning to appear that there was, in fact, no suicide — and that there may not even have been a real Sheyla. Since Verant has refused to discuss the situation, Everquest community members have initiated their own investigation of the “suicide,” turning up some perplexing information. Their research has unearthed a hidden drama behind a character that many Everquest players thought they knew well, but apparently didn’t know at all.
