Cannon Fodder 78
December 7, 2017
The whole gang is here this week to talk about the new Glass Cannon studio space, the opening of Book 4 of Giantslayer and how this multi-level party will fare in the battles to come. In Listener Mail, Joe gets over-excited about a Paladin archetype and all the guys weigh in on the seeming imbalance between player character ACs and monster to-hit modifiers at higher levels.
Troy and Joe welcome Skid to the fod as they recap the mind-blowing finale of Book Three. The guys will process all the reveals from Episode 131, roll initiative in Second Chance Theatre and, in Listener Mail, talk about some of the most common mistakes they made when they first started GMing.
Troy and Joe recap PAX Unplugged and the episode they recorded in a Philly Airbnb. They discuss how to give your dead PCs a proper swan song, the magic of letting the dice tell the story, and the awesome power of a high level inquisitor. In Listener Mail, they offer some advice to a player struggling with the code of a paladin of Iomedae.
This week, Troy and Joe attempt to scratch the surface of all the events from Episode 129 while also trying to contain their excitement over heading to PAX Unplugged! In Listener Mail, they offer suggestions on how to handle players who insist on inserting themselves into every role-playing situation.
Troy and Joe discuss ways GMs can roleplay evil characters, how to handle character death early in a combat and the work behind the scenes that went into the poetic return of Fairaza. In Listener Mail, they talk about roleplaying in PFS and GMing for power gamers.
Troy and Joe discuss the perils of relying on resting, the risk of placing an encounter right before the boss fight, and the flexibility a GM should exhibit when encountering different play styles. In Listener Mail, they get a lesson in anthropology and weigh in on the value of pre-generated characters.
