Josh Zingg is a good friend, inventive writer, and absolutely, ridiculously dedicated DM. When running a 4e D&D Iron Kingdoms game via Skype for a group of now-graduated college buddies, he constantly wrestled cantankerous tech into submission to keep things running smoothly. Between router port forwarding, shaky Skype connections and an unstable MapTools server, everything that could go wrong did. But Zingg soldiered on, dedicating what I suspect was more hours to game prep and server testing than to the sessions themselves. While we eventually moved on to another game and another platform, Zingg’s valor in the face of the gremlin horde won’t soon be forgotten. He may have been bested in the end, but he fell as a true son of Khador.
