A behind the scenes look at The Glass Cannon Network and all the happenings in #theNaish.
Cannon Fodder has gone through several iterations over the years as the Network has grown and expanded. It started as a weekly companion show to our flagship podcast, then became monthly, then went to Twitch, then was put on the shelf indefinitely as we started releasing more and more actual play content.
Due to popular demand and the support of our Patreon subscribers, you can now enjoy Cannon Fodder Friday EVERY Friday afternoon live and free for all on Twitch with the podcast version available to our $10 Patreon subscribers.
Cannon Fodder 65
September 7, 2017
Troy and Joe break down the opening moments of the battle with the Black-Headed Beast and discuss ending your session in the middle of combat, adding an aggressive third party to your encounters, and how to handle a dispute over who should get a magical item in your group. In Listener Mail, they get an exciting update from the all-vigilante game and discuss how GMs should endeavor to act when playing in another GMs game.
Troy and Joe get back on track after their Gen Con detour last week with recaps of Episodes 117 and 118 including discussions of Total Defense from the player and GM perspectives, the importance of molding your adventure around player choices and how to stick to your guns when the whole room turns against you. In a special double shot of Listener Mail, they answer questions about adventuring with an entire party of the same class and how best to bring a risky plot choice to the table as a player.
Troy and Joe take a break from the normal #fodjuice format to bring you the sounds of Gen Con 50! The guys meet up to debrief the weekend in Indianapolis and pepper in audio from their time at the Con – including their special announcement at the GCP Live! show and interviews with Ben Loomes of Syrinscape and Erik Mona of Paizo, Inc.!
This week, Troy and Joe celebrate the start of Gen Con 2017, debate the pros and cons of crunchy underwater mechanics, and announce a new classic GCP convoluted contest! In Listener Mail, they talk about playing the good guy around a table of scoundrels.
Troy and Joe discuss ideas for what GMs can do the session after the untimely death of a character, what to do when the party faces an arguably impossible obstacle and the “bleep” heard round the world. Joe asks Troy the tough questions about going way off-book in Giantslayer should the need arise, and, in Listener Mail, they brainstorm ways to set the mood in horror adventures.
This week on #thefod, Joe threatens to quit and Troy laughs in his face. The two reminisce about that magnificent bear while discussing rolling with the dice and, in a very apropos listener mail, the line between good and evil.
Troy and Joe get into some serious Pathfinder mechanics debates as they break down Flyby Attack, meta-gaming with DR and knowledge checks during combat. In Listener Mail, they consider the possibilities of re-playing an Adventure Path with a new character. Plus, Troy hypes up an advanced Pathfinder class that neither of them had really looked into before.
