Coo, coo, Hunter's Mark, coo, coo
Sam Riegel, playing The Metagaming Pigeon
The Metagaming Pigeon is a concept created by Sam Riegel in "Midnight Espionage" (2x12) to explain away metagaming comments. Thereafter, it was invoked on several occasions when players had knowledge that their characters were unable to share with each other.

"Midnight Espionage" (2x12)Edit

  • First coo.[1]
  • The Metagaming Pigeon mentions the High Richter Prucine to Fjord and Beau.[2]
  • Appearing before Jester and Beau, the Metagaming Pigeon advises them that their haversack might be useful.[3]

"A Favor in Kind" (2x16)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon comments that they're never coming back here when Mollymauk suggests they could stash items safely behind the waterfall in the underground river.[4]

"The Gentleman's Path" (2x19)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon spoke to Jester telling her that Caleb was alive (and playing dead) and that she didn't need to save him.[5]

"Commerce & Chaos" (2x31)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon spoke to Jester whilst she was examining a broken sword hilt that Pumat Sol had for sale and advised her to buy it.[6]

"The Ruby and the Sapphire" (2x33)Edit

The Metagaming Seagull explained how Caleb knew about the Sluice Weave.[7]

"Homeward Bound" (2x48)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon wanted Fjord to ask the fishmonger if he knew what Yussa Errenis looked like.[8]

"Wood and Steel" (2x58)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon talked to Caleb and Beau whilst they were discussing the payment for dealing with the giants at the Deepriver Mining Camp, it let them know that they should talk to the rest of the Mighty Nein before deciding which combination of items and gems to accept.[9]

"Domestic Respite" (2x62)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon advised Beauregard to use an insight check when she was talking to Caleb about his feelings towards Nott, but she claimed not to need it as she was so sure she was correct. But this may have just been a ruse to get him to leave so she could sleep.[10]

"Beyond the Eyes of Angels" (2x67)Edit

The Metagaming Pigeon spoke to the group to let them know that only radiant damage was of any use in the current fight against the zombies, if they wanted to successfully collect a golden heart. Although it was soon proven wrong.[11]

"Manifold Morals" (2x74)Edit

The Pigeon reminded Beauregard that they needed Teleportation Circles on both ends of their journey (which, as it turned out, they already had, with an assist from Essek).[12]

"Bathhouses and Bastions" (2x90)Edit

The Pigeon reminded Fjord to ask Adeen Tasithar what he had traded for the Luxon Beacons he allegedly gave to the Dwendalian Empire.[13]

"Bathhouses and Bastions" (2x90)Edit

The Pigeon told Nott she should buy the willowshade oil from Turmin that protects against being turned to stone.[14]
