Okay, I am a relative Noob to RPGing but an experienced gamer. On a Game like Battletech a player can have any of the sourcebooks handy during games and it is acceptable, not considered meta-gaming. The other night while playing Starfinder, a creature was mentioned and I remembered it from being in Alien Archive, which I had in my backpack. I was not trying to be a jerk, and did not realize that some people would consider this meta. The GM was cool, realized I wasn't trying to be a jerk and said how some people might be offended. Okay, well and good. But what is allowed, what is not, what is legal but being a "that guy meta type"? Thanks
I am not involved in this KS in any way, but I am seeing a lot of disappointed folks with legitimate gripes towards ND spilling frustration over at Archon and Paizo. Ninja was the one who screwed both the consumers and Paizo over. Look at the damage that has been done to Paizo's reputation over this. NO company wants that, so they did the best thing they could and got another company to step up. Are a lot of folks having to wait and perhaps pay extra to get their final product? Yup, but you are still going to get it. Look at how many Kickstarters go bust completely and folks have no recourse but to chalk it up to complete loss. It seems Archon is thee one who is blameless in this, hopefully folks will see that and direct the [deserved] ire at ND who created this mess.
There is a big difference in carrying something and shoving a file cabinet around. 2 totally different things. If you throw someone over your shoulder to get them out of the line of fire, you can move but obviously not quickly or for a huge distance. But pushing an object can be done in several different ways. For example, a lot of stores use cardboard balers for empty boxes. The bales come out weighing a few hundred pounds. One or two people can scoot or flop/roll them a short distance but it is slow going. So your characters could move something like that 1 square per full turn to make a barricade or try to take it with them.
I am still a newer player and I was given very good advice on what to start with from the folks here.

If I hadn't just been hit with 3 major Kickstarters [Starship 4, Clan Invasion and Reaper Bones 5] I would have grabbed it!
Well, I am so new, GMing is still in the distance. But, thank you for clearing this up for a new guy!
Okay, thanks! It does give me an excuse to try out a different style character. [I'm thinking of a Telia Mystic Healer]
No, it's shortened name of the ship. It's official name is "The Timeless Battlestar of the Noble, Tireless, Fearless, Bearded Questors on the Lifetime, Eternal Search for the Lost Promised, Glorious Realms Graced by Sarenrae of Golaria"Even ZO! refuses to use the full name.

Hiya folks, I need some advice. I have a couple of minis from a Reaper Kickstarter that are extremely sharp, but need a way to run them in SF.
