General Information Edit
Jeysie encountered the Space Quest universe rather late, having not properly discovered graphic adventure games until roughly March 2001. After discovering the Virtual Broomcloset and lurking at the SubChan for a time, she eventually signed up around May 2001 and proceeded to fit in like a square peg in a triangular hole.
Her first order of business was to inadvertently get roped into a virtual wedding (the details of which are long and mostly forgotten) which eventually helped spur the creation of the #sq IRC channel.
Her main claim to fame, however, is maintaining the Many Deaths Of... website, which caused Jess to bestow upon her the moniker "Diva of Death". The site was borne when one of the first SubChan threads Jeysie encountered was one discussing the various death scenes in Space Quest. Gareth Millward initially came up with the idea of a comprehensive death list, but, for reasons also forgotten, never carried it out. Jeysie stepped in, shamelessly stole the idea, and fleshed it out using her Print Screen-button pushing prowess, Game Audio Player-wielding abilities, and extremely anal-retentive organizational skills.
Even then the idea of death lists was nothing new, even in the Space Quest Community. There was a (now defunct) list called "Space Quest 0: So You Want to Be Dead?", a partial list at Jouke's (also defunct) Sierra Gamers website, and a Space Quest 1 : The Sarien Encounter Death List at GameFAQs. As far as currently known, however, The Many Deaths of Roger Wilco was the only site to take the concept far beyond a simple list (not to mention the only site still actually functioning and/or updated).
Since then the site has (slowly) been expanded to include other games, and other folks on the Net have taken up the more-than-just-a-death-list idea, but the Space Quest section remains the most notorious.
