Sometimes games are unintentionally hilarious. Take, for instance, the World of Darkness Crossover Game I was in for a time (For your own sanity: DO NOT EVER RUN OR PLAY IN A W.O.D. CROSSOVER GAME).

We picked up a Vampire late in the game, and our Werewolf, Chase, was something of an impatient fellow. My much-stressed Hunter, Daisy Maza (named after my two favorite fictional cops), was leading a charge with most of the rest of our crossover group–Dusty the Promethean, our mages Bear and Relic, and our new Changeling–against a bunch of cultists who attacking The Dumbest Task Force Valkyrie Operatives EVER (more on that in another post). Instead of coming with us Chase takes the brand-new Vampire to an alley by the Task Force Valkyrie base. He points to the darkest part of the alley and says “Stand over there, close your eyes, and let what happens happen.”

To which the female Vampire spins around and says ”Excuse me? If there is ANY funny business I will shoot you!”

“No, no, no! Just–just stand over there, OK?” Chase demands.

Out of character we’re all dying laughing. We know that Chase is just trying to bring the Vampire into the Shadow Realm so they can slip past the gunfight that stands between them and the TFV base, but the Vampire as a character has no idea what’s going on.

To emphasize his character’s honorable intentions, Chase’s player says “He’s just standing there. He’s not following her.” Then after a pause he asks the Vampire’s player “Are you resisting?”

We all die laughing as the Vampire’s player bursts out with “Resisting what?” and Chase’s player realizes how terrible that sounded. He only meant “resisting being pulled into the shadow,” but, obviously, wound up with a terrible innuendon’t instead.
