Metagaming is using out-of-character knowledge in a role-playing game scenario in which ideally the player should remain in character.
I didn't expect there to be a Wikipedia article on this concept, but indeed there is.
So rather than Mordekai's line about metagaming, this could work just as well if the opening lines had gone like this:
1 Lambert: Obviously this Dwalin knows about the secret dwarven passage, otherwise why else would he be here?Transfer this to the real world and...
1 Mordekai: Yes, the will of the gods is not to be denied.
Yeah. People who invoke destiny or fate or the will of gods in an attempt to explain events are actually metagaming reality.
