Sometimes, an experimental combination of factors is so bizarre that you don't really know how it's going to go until you try it. Which... describes a lot of my campaigns, actually...

One seldom thinks how sometimes a player may not be weirded out by people being weird or disturbing in the game, but by people playing the game straight and innocent as can be and generating a dissonance due to tangential factors.

Not that one could or should do anything about it, the best you can do is roll with it.

I remember decades back in college I ran a super hero campaign and two of the players were roommates. There was an argument between the team on handling a super villain situation and the two players mentioned had an argument so convincing that I panicked thinking it was an OOC fight. But no, they assured us they were just acting. I was do convinced tho! I awarded a lot of exp that night.

I have a friend like that. Our characters can have a mean and insulting fight, and everyone thinks we're mad irl, but we're just having fun playing out a fight

Edit: In defense of the others, we play text-only, so it's much harder to tell what players are thinking

Goooooood. Feel that confusion swelling in you! Embrace the bewilderment! Give in to the anxiety and let it flow through you! Your rationalization and confirmation bias are no match for the power of the cognitive dissonance!

I laughed. I read it in Emperor Palpatine's voice, actually

Cadence's perception may be lower than her stealth, but I can't help imagining that her stealth is... a lot.
