|“||If we say something while Dave is sipping his wine, we can call it 'canon' before he has a chance to say no.||”|
"Canon" is a word of power that can, on occasion, be called upon by the party to alter reality in a manner that benefits them, or that they just find amusing. It takes advantage of Dragon Friends' remarkable dual-GM set-up, and generally occurs in some variation of the following form:
- Dave introduces a character to the adventure that he intends to be serious or dramatic,
- Ben does a silly voice,
- The Dragon Friends invoke Canon, establishing that voice as the de-facto sound of the character from that point onwards.
This is usually the source of much amusement to everyone except Dave, and who cares what thinks, he's just the GM.
