My meatspace group is playing Curse of Strahd (a Ravenloft 5E adventure), and player absence is explained by the mists coming and taking the PC and doing something weird, then when you come back your PC rejoins the group with some kind of minor, random psychosis. My rogue spent my absence surrounded by mist, with wolves jumping out and attacking him at random times. Came out with a constant fear that at any moment, wolves would jump out and attack.
There is now a haunted house containing multiple pieces of wolf-shaped décor that have my arrows in them, despite the local merchant charging 10x the book price for everything. And when we finally had a combat against wolves, I threw myself against them first with daggers, then with my bare hands, then finally with my face, in a blind rage.
Not very effective, but seemed appropriate to the narrative.
