Are you defending metagaming?
Not really, though I guess you could say I'm using it against the hypothetical players while giving clues on why things changed. Though I do believe characters should have a basic knowledge of what kinds of creatures live near/around where they start and what their supposed weaknesses are.

If my players pretend to not know about trolls and fire, I have the trolls spit fire at them, and then explode.

..Just thought I would throw in a less expected answer.

Torgue Trolls! I love it!


Ooh! And I'll have all the exploded bits squirm back together so the troll regenerates from the explosion like a T1000.
