# Are very "metagamey" questions allowed?

So our DM ended on a cliffhanger last time. We just got to see the boss we're gonna fight and got a few very vague clues towards what it was... including the DM throwing over his DM barricade thing resulting in me getting a peak view on the paige of the source book he is using.

Since I'm an extreme munchkin I want to find out what it is and I was about to ask a question on RPG stackexchange, but I wanna make sure that I can.

Other than me having to be really ashamed of doing such a dirty thing, are there any site rules that prevent me from asking a pure metagaming question?

• If it's just an identification question, that's on topic. You don't have to explain in the question that you're a terrible person. :-) (But I don't know if this is just an identification question, which is why this isn't an answer.) Mar 13, 2016 at 13:23
• @HeyICanChan thanks, I'll just try asking it. I think I can make it a identification question and not mention how much of a d**k I am ;-) Mar 13, 2016 at 14:45
• You might get downvoted if people don't like the idea of you metagaming, but there's no rule against this sort of question. (And arguably the downvotes would be misplaced.) Mar 13, 2016 at 16:15
• @TuggyNe and others: Why do you answer the question in comments, as opposed to in answers? Apr 4, 2016 at 7:12
