RIP Jason Zavoda

It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Jason Zavoda, who was a stalwart of the Greyhawk fan community.

He was involved in Greyhawk fandom online for as long as I can remember, and his contributions were both imaginative and useful.

His blog, Hall of the Mountain King (also mirrored on Greyhawk Online) are filled with his wonderful storytelling and reflect his obvious love of the game and the Greyhawk setting. His Encyclopedia Greyhawkiana (found here) is a somewhat dated (last updated 2003 as far as I can tell), but still incredibly valuable, resource for any fan of the World of Greyhawk Fantasy Setting.

Of course, as reflected on his FaceBook page, his gaming interests went beyond merely AD&D and Greyhawk, encompassing everything from Tunnels and Trolls to Warhammer, and beyond.

His contributions to our community, both creative and personal, will be sorely missed.

Rest in Peace, Jason.

  1. I am still trying to process the loss of Jason. I met him on Google+ and we spoke quite a few times on D&D and Greyhawk. When Google+ went away, he friended me on Facebook and we continued our friendship. His posts on Google+, Facebook, and his blog always made me smile and think. I am thankful to have known him.

  2. I never got to meet Jason, but I got to know him over at Dragonsfoot. His love of Greyhawk was both invigorating and infectious. I was glad to see him join Lord Gosumba’s stream on Twitch for a few episodes. He will be sorely missed. 😢 Praying for his family and friends.

  3. I never got to meet him but he was selling some stuff and I made a buy from him last summer. We sent a few messages and he mentioned health issues. Sad to hear of his passing but even sadder to see that not one person posted on his Facebook page after his passing. It’s good to see him being remembered here.
