** Carol had set up her plot in such a way that [[XanatosGambit no matter what Bob does, everything will end up her way in the end]]. When Bob shoots TheBigBad, Carol points out that if he had waited he'd know that TheBigBad was armored and bullet proof from the very beginning of her campaign.

** Alice is a [[TheLoonie a Loonie]] trying her hand at being a GM. Unfortunately for her, Bob and the other players are StopHavingFunGuys and want to play the game by the book and follow the story.

** Carol, while annoyed, uses the sudden swerve to practise her storytelling skills
** Carol knows Bob will ignore everything she says especially the things she expects him to and [[CassandraGambit starts giving good advice]]. The next thing Bob knows is his character doesn't like [[RocksFallEveryoneDies rocks]] or [[BoltOfDivineRetribution electricy]]. Now everyone blames Bob for taking the IdiotBall (that Carol gave him in first place).

* '''Subverted''': Carol creates two series of events: a general obvious one that she likes and two more that she ''really'' likes. The player's attempt at going OffTheRails [[XanatosGambit is what allows her to put the second into action]], ensnaring the players into an even tighter narrative.
