I’m running a poll on whether or not a DM can metagame. What do you guys think?I think it's definitely part of a DM's arsenal – you can't help but let knowledge of your players affect your planning, so long as its fair

One thought on “Whether or not a DM can metagame”
Absolutely. Nothing like spending 15 to 30 minutes devising a plan and as soon as your done the enemy is one step ahead of you every step of the way.
Naturally not everything is always going to go according to plan but when there’s an ambush waiting for you at every choke point you’ve already scouted…
