Roleplaying in general is a weird thing to try to explain to someone who has no frame of reference. What is even worse is then un-initiated people step into the gaming zone only to see or overhear something straight up crazy. What is the playgrounds' most embarrassing roleplaying story that involves someone walking into the room with little or no context?

"Dozens of murdered Italians, men; women and children, are slaughtered in the street, their corpses discovered in the bay mutilated and marked as a warning to others."
"Are our fingerprints on them?"

Or maybe:

"Alright, I'll give you a bonus for such savage rectal trauma."

Those at least got the most 'what the hells' from my player's wife.

Not actually a roleplaying line, but a discussion about porn movies took place during the game at the club and some poor girl (about 14-15 I think) wandered in just then. She made a heel-face turn and we never saw her again.

I was running a game of Paranoia at my girlfriend's place. One of her roommates is from Guangdong, China.

That made me feel a little awkward after I congratulated the players for their efforts in "crushing the communist menace to our society!" right as she walked in.

I don't have anything all that good, but there was the time when someone of a sensitive disposition walked in on a really bleak Microscope game - during a description of everyone on a submarine dying horribly because of electrical malfunctions that caused it to drop below the maximum depth. A somewhat long description.

There was the time me and my gaming friends got the police called on us when discussing our characters' plans for a Shadowrun game that would take place the following week, while eating at a Denny's. Luckily the cops understood that we were just nerds. :smalltongue:

From a recent thread.


For the past 3 years I've been running a continuous string of campaigns in the same world, with the same recurring NPCs. One of these NPCs, is a woman named Terial. She been nick named by the players as "Care Taker." She is easily the nicest, most helpful, soft spoken, easy going, character I have ever created. She is immensely powerful, and uses that power to heal, revive, and put the party back together. Recently during a large scale, city wide battle. The party came up against the BBEG and promptly had their @$$es handed to them. Terial who helped them get that far, then sacrificed herself to save the party and stop the BBEG (temporarily). I was expecting people to be upset but it's been 3 weeks since then and none of my Players Have managed to get over it. I even think they are going through the stages of loss. I have a small hunch that they resent me a little bit for killing her. One of my players and close friends was talking to me about the session while in the middle of a Target store when suddenly grabbed me by the shoulders, shook me violently and screamed "why did you have to kill her?!?" We then had to explain to the off duty officer one isle over that no one actually died.

Doesn't get more embarassing than this.

Not exactly a Walk in, but just a little while ago I got a concerned PM about the 10-11 year old and builds guns in his basement in my Roleplaying is Magic Game.

One time on vacation, we were playing in the camp ground's lodge, and we had the following dialouge:
DM: "You walk into to the orphanage and see nothing but puddles of blood on the ground."
Me: "That bastard! He killed the Orphans!"

And of course, this is when a group of old grannies walked in.

***

I have also been on the opposite side of the scene. Once while working security at my college, I hear moaning and screaming coming from one of the rooms in the theater building. Not knowing what it was, I pound on the door, yelling "Campus Public Safety," and open the door... to see five guys sitting around playing a table top game. Apparently they were using the Book of Erotic Fantasy. I don't know who was more embarrassed. (And yes, one of the guys did sound like a girl moaning)

Shadowrun planning session, played in a classroom at night. Our PCs were plotting for OOC hours to abduct a college-age girl from a concert ("next friday"), we were laughing like idiots talking about drugging people, killing people, spiking drinks, and dealing with security and police, next to a chalkboard with a detailed map on it. The windows were open.

Two police officers walked in. They noticed our dice and realized we were playing a game, but they told us to get out (the building was closed at the time) and we never played shadowrun again after that.

Not exactly an RPG, but my roommate was trying to tell me how cool Portal 2 was by quoting Glados's hatred of orphans in a taqueria once. Sitting at the table behind him was a gigantic, athletic looking guy giving him a look of "simmering with barely concealed rage."

Fortunately, he didn't defenestrate us both.

Not quite a walk-in story, but...

We were playing Rifts (in the late 90s, early 2000s; I was in college, so no later than 2001, and probably about 98 or 99; I want to say it was after Columbine) in an apartment with VERY thin walls. As many Rifts games do, this one involved us carefully planning an attack... we were talking about kill zones, overlapping fields of fire, explosives, the whole 9 yards. Like you do.

We slowly became aware of police lights outside. This made us substantially worried, since we thought "Holy crap, did someone overhear us and call the cops, thinking we were planning a REAL massacre?"

Turns out that someone had lit a rag and stuffed it into a neighbor's gas tank. Had the neighbor's daughter not come home late, we would've had a car explode on us about the time we were springing our trap on the forces of Mindwerks...

I think you mean ‘Turned on her heel” as a Heel face turn (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HeelFaceTurn). Is a bit different. Unless she was a villain that suddenly became a hero.


I also read that as pub not club. Which was calling to mind all sorts of other questions...


...my god.
while it's not DnD related.
I actually saw our neighbor’s car get torched, big orange flames and everything. My bro has a friend on the local police force, he asked him and he told us a little about the investigation. Turns out the guy’s (now ex) girlfriend found out about his other girlfriend.

"No, you can't go to the local temple and just take the orphans to rear as messenger boys"

"No, the pregnant mother of 7 will not accompany you into the woods"

"I said chest, not breast"

"You cannot ride the giant lizard, in any meaning of the phrase"

"No, Finger of Death is in no way related to Kiss of Death"

"There is no way in hell your bluff is high enough to convince him of where his entrails currently are"

"So you're casting Raise Dead while the pyre is still alight?"

"He swings in the other direction"

"First I'm going to amputate, then i'm going to attach this wand to the stump."

Yes all of these happened, though not the same group/person.

1. I was having lunch with a friend in a Thai restaurant, and he was enthusiastically telling me about the new game he'd just started to DM. Among many other details, he loudly and laughingly described how the party had accidentally shot the NPC druid, who had fallen ahead of them in the corridor, and whose arrow-feathered body was subsequently set on fire. By that point we were starting to get some very strange looks from the tables near us.

Also, apparently the party killed Meepo. Not sure if I ever got the full story on that.



2. Not directly related to gameplay, but an awkward moment during my first night with a different gaming group. The DM was on the phone with a friend, discussing the friend's wife.

DM: Tell her I want to see her ****.

(pause)

DM: Oh yeah, she already did.



I didn't go back to that group.

The shop where I play Warhammer at customarily goes to the Asian restaurant across the street after games. The owners are used to it, they even let us store our enormous amount of baggage (two or three boxes per person, ten to fifteen people) in a back room. But you can only talk about throwing grenades at people, air support and sniper fire so often until you get strange looks.

Still not as bad as Shadowrun, of course. That game is made for being taken out of context. We once had a very loud discussion about drones, gang members, drugs, hiding evidence and bribing the police. On a public train, when two officers of the railway police came in.

At university the RP'ing society was notorious for Shadowrun/Cyberpunk misunderstandings. The two best being the police being called to investigate the shopping list of guns and ammo a G.M. left in the Students Union and the deep suspicion after a Cyberpunk group were overheard discussing setting a electrical fire to cover up evidence shortly before the room they were in was gutted by an electrical fire !

It wasn't a walk-in, rather a player saying something that just came out WRONG.

We were playing a Vampire: the Requeim game. I was playing a female Malkavian (the disease, not the Ventrue bloodline) with Dementate. Another player was a low-Humanity Nos. My PC (through Dementate) discovered a ghost who was living in our Haven. I was the only one who could talk to him (through Dementate), but was passing on everything he said to the party. We got a lot of good info out of him, but then it was time to wrap up for the night. Before we did, I asked the rest of the party if there was any other info they wanted.

The Nos turns to me and said (completely deadpan and IC) "I want you to suck him for everything he's got." I broke out laughing so hard I stopped breathing and turned purple.

In an amusing twist of fate, the oxygen loss to my brain seems to have triggered a realization that I was attracted to the Nos's player. We've been married for two years now.

Is it possible the DM wanted to see the wife's sheet (as in character sheet), and you misheard it as a common four-letter word that sounds similar to "sheet"?

Palanan
2014-11-18, 06:38 PM
The wife wasn't a player. He was talking about something more personal.

That was just the crowning moment of low class in a generally dismal session. When the DM tells you up front that one of the other players cheats constantly, and the group tolerates it because otherwise the player would pitch a screaming fit, you know it's not a game worth returning to.

Every Friday on our way home from work, the DM and I like to stop and have lunch in this restaurant where we usually end up chatting about our current game. He's...well he's just naturally quite loud, especially when he's amused by something, and it always seems to come back to him making rather explicit comments about my character and her kind of relationship with the dhampir npc in the game to embarrass me, not realising he's speaking loud enough that half the place can likely hear him (and of course, rather than refer to my character, he refers to me directly)

"He totally gets off on your blood!"

"Don't mind me, just gonna go let this guy bite my neck and have his way"

We get a lot of weird uncomfortable looks from the people around us because he doesnt realise how ridiculously loud he talks in public. I will also point out the game isn't quite like how he makes it sound, he just knows thats going to embarrass me, which probably wouldnt so much if he could speak a little quieter.

On the plus side, the staff at that place always remember us and start giving us a table right in the back away from the family section and always serve us quickly these days. There's probably a reason for it, but Im going to make the best of the situation.

2014-11-19, 09:21 AM
I can honestly say I've never had that kind of walk-in. Only because I'm shy about talking in character in front of strangers, so I tend to fall silent when people walk in, and stop play until they're gone. Which is pretty awkward in its own way, but doesn't leave me with any good stories.

But! This reminds me of another kind of walk-in. Gaming at the house of a gentleman with kids, his teenaged daughter walked through, and the host stopped for introductions. After names, and by way of introduction, we got...
Host: [chatter]... and, [daughter] writes hentai stories.
Everyone: ...
Daughter: No, dad. Its hetalia.

I would assume liquified brain matter might go through the ears. Or the stuff your brain floats in, the name of which escapes me.

The only story I have on-topic is a player mention following someone to the depths of Hades, "the place, not the dude" just as the lady of the house walked in.

Well, I can't say I've had many good ones, aside from my great grandma walking in on us saying "did you make sure the poison killed him?" which caused her to freak out. And once we told her it was just D&D, she promptly called D&D the game of the devil and started rattling off stories about how a bunch of people committed suicide when it came out or something.

A Penanggalan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penanggalan) is formed by the head (and internal organs) of a living person detaching themselves from the rest of the body. After the viscera detaches itself, it flies around in the night to drink the blood of pregnant women and babies. It then re-attaches itself to the body and acts sort of like a normal person during the day.

EDIT: There are also the sort of zombies which will come back despite being decapitated. You could even have it carry its own head around.

I was convinced/begged to run a side mission while our group was at a Denny's since where we usually play was unavailable & we were down a few players. It was a saga game & I decided to have them figure out how to infiltrate a small imperial base. They are discussing different ideas as to how to sneak in. Yuzzem player tells me he wants to fiddle with his wrist computer & see if he gets any service. I tell him yes but he has to deal with a pop up ad or two.

Our waitress comes by, we order drinks & we ask her to give us a few minutes to decide on food. The group ends up deciding to go with a distraction after a few minutes of debate. Cue Yuzzem player saying "I just ordered 1000 boxes of enlargement pills to the front door Paid on Delivery" At the same time our waitress returned to see if we were ready to order now. She goes wide eyed & we have to explain we're playing a game before she calls the manager on us. To her benefit we left her a generous tip for having to deal with us.

Plus, even in comparison to games like nWoD Shadowrun is very planning focused. There's a great deal of elaborate planning on the precise details of shooting people with guns, stealing goods, hacking, etc.

I just remembered something.

it was my first ever Vampire: The Requem Game. We were in the Backroom of a Gamstore, now closed. In the other room we had People Playing D&D4E.

One of the players in my Group described the exact type of Prostitute he was hunting for(to feed from) as a "Middle Aged Asian Hooker"

At that moment one of the guys in the next room said "I charge it and go HHHUUURRGGGGHN!!!!"

...To which Vampire Player said "And it will sound just like that"

Not exactly a walk in, but...

Sort of related to the topic, but just this past weekend there was a small incident at the Vampire LARP I oversee. One girl was playing a seductive manipulator-type character, and I happened to walk in to the room while she was doing a rather provocative dance for another character in a similarly provocative costume. Being as how we play in a semi-public area (the second floor of a campus building that we reserve for private use) with a public-access stairwell to the rest of the building right next to said room, I had to shut that down quick before an embarrassing walk-in (and resultant possible loss of rental privileges) occurred. You never know.

Not so much a walk-in as a break-in, perhaps home invsasion depending of how you look at it, but...
We finally had our first RPG session between friends, and it took place in this apartment. With paper-thin walls. We can hear everything the neighbours are doing, and the other way round.
It wouldn't be so bad if we weren't playing In Nomine Satanis (with, you know, demonic PCs), controlled PCs that barely - if at all - functioned in society (as in more than half were homeless or coming from a psychiatric institution), and loudly talked about several illegal acts (half of which being sexual in nature) and throwing garbage trucks at angels. The latter, we ended up doing, because, well, PCs.
At one point, the GM read out loud part of the (fictional) book we were supposed to create a buzz around as our mission. It's a lot like 50 Shades of Grey*, but with a lot of ALL OF THE bestiality, and was read appropriately. When I stopped cracking up and facepalming simultaneously, I managed a sarcastic lampshade "Come on, read it louder! The neighbours are going to miss the best part of the evening."
We never received any news from the neighbours. Hopefully they were absent. We had no cops called on us anyway, which is a good thing.

From what I've heard those two types do correlate rather strongly.:smalltongue:
I love Hetalia, and I agree with this statement.

DM: "Congradulations, you've just killed your goblin overseer"

Players: "Can we get a bonus for eating him?"

People playing skyrim in the background "What the ****?"That reminds me of my first evil campaign; the party had just defeated a druid that had been a thorn in their side for about a level or so. The Mystic Theurge in the party skinned her, then reanimated her as a zombie.

It got worse from there; I don't wanna think about what a person might have thought, walking in on that discussion. :eek:

There was the time me and my gaming friends got the police called on us when discussing our characters' plans for a Shadowrun game that would take place the following week, while eating at a Denny's. Luckily the cops understood that we were just nerds. :smalltongue:

I'd like to hear more details on this, if you don't mind :smallsmile:

I'd like to hear more details on this, if you don't mind :smallsmile:I'm afraid I don't remember the exact thrust of our discussion, but it was the Denver Missions, which as you may recall, has a lot of backstabbing and trickery going on between a number of crime families (Yakuza, Mafia, et cetera.), and two of the players were talking about things like drive-bys and disabling cameras. Luckily the police understood that we were just nerding it up and not talking about actual crimes.

When I was at Nottingham university it had a large and active LARP society that took full use of the grounds of the university. One saturday night we were running an adventure and a huge battle had developed between the group and the 'monsters'.
Spells were yelled, swords and axes swung and then two vans full of riot police squealed up !
A passer-by on the road outside the grounds had seen what looked like two groups of people holding a gang battle and had rung the police. Luckily one of the police was a Role Player and the matter was quickly and good humouredly sorted out

A few here and there.

At the local anime convention 2 or 3 years ago. I had grabbed a table in one of gaming rooms(the ones with board games and for other such purposes), sitting down too see if I could scrounge together a short game well I waited for the next panel I was interested in.
So I get a group of 5 people fairly quickly.
A few fun moments as people entered into the room, etc.

This happened when the investigators found a person early on in the adventure
Player #2 : "Can I lick the slime?"
Me : "Yes but I think she'd have issues with being that close"
Player #2 : "Ah it will be an adventure for both of us"
Player #3 : "Adventure means you'd have too have not licked another person before"
At this point the young gentleman who had just walked in sat down from us with rapt attention... and then realized we were not playing that sort of game and left.

Description of a pair one a man and the other a dog covered in the same slime. Person walks in as I'm describing the dog and never hears mention of the person
Player #4 : "Hey this one will probably not mind you licking them"
Player #2 : "Ah but she's already done that type of thing before"
Person leaves, blushing.

Player #3 : "If I strap all the explosives too the dog will that be enough too collapse the cave?"
Me : "If it was in a deeper section then yes. Right now it is not going anywhere"
Player #2 : "Not unless you lick it first"
Person that walked into the room walks back out.

On the note the slime was a paralytic that once washed off immediately stopped having an effect on the subject. It was Mi-Go freeze goop too examine an interesting human later.
Thanks too one good CON roll the Detective had swallowed some of the slime without ill effect. And later found a arcane scroll with ink that would make the you immune too the stuff, though only in the place the ink was applied. So the detective put it on her tongue. Making her able too swallow the Mi-Go Slime without worry add also saving her from the soon too come paralyzing of her digestive system from secondary CON checks

More embarrassing walk-in's later.

PS : This is probably one of the strangest ways a Call of Cthulhu scenario has ever gone for me. A lucky roll and some perverted silliness because of one random choice lead too some of the weirdest and funniest stuff. Great session, kept the horror going until someone remembered that the one player could lick her way too safety in many scenarios.

Not precisely roleplaying, but at my university our assassins society (essentially the `shoot each other with nerf guns" society) has, due to either discussion of the game or overly realistic looking toy guns, got armed response called on it. Twice. In the past year.
I'm actually surprised and impressed that the student union is so understanding about in.

Is it possible the DM wanted to see the wife's sheet (as in character sheet), and you misheard it as a common four-letter word that sounds similar to "sheet"?

Huh. That's gonna be a stumper for a while. I can't think of a common four letter word that sounds like sheet and is worth censor.

Ah well.


*walks in on session*
*player is describing Animal X Human*
*walks right back out again to insane laughter of entire group*

I've had to throw that guy out before. There's a time and a place man, and scaring people out of a crowded in (or out of game, out of a college cafeteria) while we're playing logistics is not cool.


I can honestly say I've never had that kind of walk-in. Only because I'm shy about talking in character in front of strangers, so I tend to fall silent when people walk in, and stop play until they're gone. Which is pretty awkward in its own way, but doesn't leave me with any good stories.

Yeah. One of my first DM type folks didn't play D&D but just made up his own world and game and stuff, and conditioned me likewise. I have a hard time role playing around outsiders because he had a walk-in that ended with a strange guy berating him for an hour at a bus stop, basically saying "yeah I get that you're using your imagination or whatever? But you know it's not real. There is no sword and you don't have magic powers. You know that right?"

-snip-

EDIT: So I'm a dumbass, and got derailed telling a separate anecdote that wasn't the one related to licking things in Call of Cthulhu. Here's the right stupid story:

I'm playing in a game of Delta Green (modern CoC + X-files-style conspiracy) as a Vietnam-vet Green Beret. We end up finding out about a race of sentient lizards living in the Nevada desert, who are on the brink of being wiped out by the Greys. We literally end up negotiating with them, and lo and behold we're in their burrows hanging out with them. I was introduced to the others by them finding me passed out in a bar restroom with a Ka-Bar in my leg (turns out I did that, being blind drunk does that to ya but at least I apparently won a $20 bet in the process), so the lizards treated my wound and gave me some sort of natural painkiller tonic. I hesitantly drink it, and boom...GM describes to me the craziest stuff he could think of. Doctor PC notices my character is tripping balls, and runs a quick test on the stuff...turns out their saliva has a wide variety of narcotic side-effects.

As soon as I come down, my Green Beret training kicks in. And I don't mean the "kill everything with your bare hands" part, I mean the Green Berets' actual job description.

"How much of this stuff do you have?"

So, we end up selling hundreds of gallons of the stuff to drug dealers, get half a million dollars worth of heavy weapons, and I end up leading a battalion of previously Stone-Age lizard people into battle against UFOs.

And, of course, one of the other PCs opts to start licking the walls of the tunnels whenever he can. This later extends to licking anything supernatural, be it the armor of a UFO or a statue of Cthulhu himself.

So yes. I got one of my teammates addicted to licking lizard people saliva. True story.

Not exactly a walk-in, but in college, my regular Shadowrun group was out for late night snacks at a 24-hour restaurant after game. We we, naturally, discussing the evenings game. Which had involved safe-cracking, assassination by sniper, and shooting down a light aircraft with an RPG.

Someone finally pointed out that we were getting some very odd looks from the cops two tables over. After which, we all started saying "game" very loudly in the course of our conversation, and then petered off into other subjects. Which probably sounded even more suspicious objectively. In retrospect, the cops were probably thinking "what a bunch of nerds" and nothing more. (This was before 9/11, thank goodness, or who knows what could have happened!)

The person in question wasn't describing it in any seriousness and it was related to what was happening at the time, I had just managed to walk in on them at the exact time to hear that without much context. It was still hilarious for everyone.

Running Sunless Citadel. The DM was really, really getting into it, and we had just gotten to Yusdrayl. He stood up, said loudly in a very in-character voice, "I am the Queen of the Kobolds!"

We were in college at the time, playing in the student lounge. And an entire tour full of about thirty prospective students and their parents had just walked into the lounge.

... Oh, dear God. Nothing I have comes even close to that.

There was this one time when the DM did the lights-off-hood-up-torch-under-the-chin thing to recount a tale to us in-character. In a faux-Scottish Dwarven voice more full of obscenities than you could shake a mithril pick axe at. He'd just got to something that was both especially dramatic and remarkably expletive when the dad of the player hosting it walked in. I turned to him and said 'Plot recap'.

Luckily, he was a gamer, so I think he understood. But I still cringed. Everyone else found it hilarious.

Well, the full story is less funny, but here it is.

I was invited by one of my GM's friends to play a Call of Cthullu game at his home. My first, and I think last, game of Cthullu ever. So we met up, and before we started, his two kids, one not older than six and the other not older than eleven (twelve maybe, but maybe he was barely ten I never asked) expressed their desire to play with us. We explained to them that it was a horror kind of game, which thrilled them beyond recognition. The father gave his approval, so the GM thought he would roll with it.

The game proceeded somewhat smoothly, as smooth as it can with two kids and a new player at the table anyway, until we reached a very, very creepy room. We started investigating until the father opened a drawer, in which a little creepy furball laid waiting and jumped at his open mouth. He barely stopped it before it got in and after refusing my help (for some reason he wasn't too thrilled about me shooting it off his face. Litterally. With an actual revolver) he managed to throw it on the floor.

Cue the youngest son exclaiming 'I ass-stomp it!'

We got deathly silent, checked that we understood what he meant to do well and... The GM cleared his throat and proceeded to explain the rectal invasion.

Well, our sudden outburst of silence must have ticked the mother off, since she came to check on us at that very moment.

Now, let it be said that I am not a smart man. But I still had the intelligence to cook some sort of excuse about fetching food before the temperature in the room started reaching the absolute zero.

When I got back my character was driving a car to the nearest hospital with the kid in the backseat.

Much less interesting, eh?

Not a strange walk-in but the person who walked in made it weird:

i dm for a party of four, one of wich is a cleric who is secretly evil (no one knew but me). And we were playing at the clerics house.
His brother walks in, hears the cleric declare "I heal myself" and wonders aloud:"You heal yourself? I thought you were really evil and only worked with negative energy?"

*Party slowly turns to cleric*

"Thanks bro, that wasn't a secret or anything..."
