FOOLISH MORTALS TEST DRIVE



Due to both player interest and murdergame newbies who might be curious about how they'd play in the more intense settings, we've decided to open up an official test drive. This is in lieu of a mock trial, as we know a good deal of players are considering testing out multiple muses before the game start. This test drive will remain open until the game itself opens in June.


Foolish Mortals is, of course, open to Disney characters only - and the same rules apply here. Characters who don't fit this criteria may find themselves being removed from the test drive, for consistency purposes. If you have any questions, please feel free to consult our FAQ here. Please list your character's name (canon also recommended) in the header of your top-level prompt.

Here are some examples to get you started:

1 - Waking Up
You find yourself awoken in a dreary little bed that creaks and squeaks far too much for your liking. The room is run-down and decrepit, and cobwebs practically coat the particularly tacky wallpaper. It's...unnerving, to say the least, and you should probably get out of there. Sadly, it doesn't look like the rest of the mansion is any cleaner, but...perhaps you'll find others in similar circumstances?

2 - Killing Time
If we must kill something, it might as well be your boredom. It doesn't seem, however, that the mansion has quite a lot to offer in the way of entertainment. There's an old projector with creepy silent film reels, a ballroom, a portrait gallery, a conservatory (filled with dead plants) and...a seance room. Might be best to stay away from that one, especially since it feels like you're being watched...

3 - Happy Haunts
There's...stillness in the air. Occasionally, you might notice some sort of unexplainable oddity. A piano might begin to play itself in your presence, or dishes and silverware might reaarange themselves when you're not looking. The eyes on portraits might even follow you around, until you notice them. Perhaps it's worth investigation, or perhaps you're better off just screaming and running away. Your call.

4 - Formal Ball
It should be known that your Ghost Host just loves throwing parties. Indeed, it appears that he's called a mandatory one in the ballroom...on Thursday night. You should throw on your best formal attire, and try to have a good time. It should be mentioned, of course, that the motive this week appears to be getting on everyone's nerves. It doesn't really help matters that it'd be so easy to take someone out if you just flipped the lights off...have fun.

5 - Body Discovery

The smell of deer carcass fills the air. Though you didn't know her very well, it appears that Bambi's Mom is dead, and one of you is responsible. Better investigate the mansion for clues, and hope you don't mess this up...

6 - Et Cetera, Et Cetera, Et Cetera
For all the prompts you want to do but we haven't listed.

Keep in mind that posting in the test drive does not represent a commitment to join our game. You're welcome to play here even if you can't app. Playing here does not guarantee a slot in the game, nor does it count as a reserve. However, you're welcome to use up to 20 comments here from your character on the test drive should you app them later, in lieu of a sample.

Remember, reserves for the game will be opening on June 2nd.

[I. Waking Up ]

[ There is a heaviness to him when he awakens that there shouldn't be. His first thought is to simply become incorporeal. But there is something wrong. He cannot blend with shadow like he could before. With a grunt, vivid golden eyes open and he raises a hand to the ceiling. ...What's happening...? ]

Where is my strength...?

[ It's almost as if he were human again. Did he not shed that form long ago for the positives this would give? Slowly, he pushes himself off the bed. And then he hovers. Strange. Is this only as far as he can go? A bit forward and he plummets, boot landing on the floor. ...Who did this to him? ]

...So. There is one who thinks they can bind me in mortal flesh? I must have words with this insolent...

[ He clenches a fist then releases it. Fine. Fine. Let's continue onward and investigate. ]

[ II. Body Discovery ]

[ Now that he's more used to his more... Mortal limitations, and he knows the vague rules of this place, he doesn't mind investigating the body that's been discovered. He's formerly a brilliant scientist, after all. He knows anatomy. So, then, he's going to kneel, keeping him gloves on so that he doesn't obscure anything. ]

...Why would one murder a deer? Could they not hope to end the life of any of the others here...?

[ Since it was mentioned it's in pieces, how many? And also, what was it cut with? Or was it simply just torn apart? ]

[ Smaller blade? Bigger or smaller than a scalpel? Because he would definitely recognize that. ]

[ Listen, he needs a reference. So. Someone skilled with a dagger. And given the above reply to Fiddleford, the girl went through the ringer. Hm... So. the leg and ear. They nearby? Or just completely gone from the scene? ]

[ There a blood trail, then? He's gleaned what he can from the body, he thinks, given the tags between here and Fiddleford, but those body parts were deliberately cut so where are they? ]

[ ...Well. He's still a Heartless, even if he is feeling a lot more human. Anything sharpened senses might pick up if any of those are actually still active at all? Or is this a dead end? Still. Someone seems to have wanted a damn trophy. ]

[ YUP. Gonna go investigate that. ]

[ ...Glitter. Oh boy. Mun has Guesses. Can he pick it up, or is it fine powder? ]

[ Well, now he wishes he had a microscope. Hm. ...What even is it? It's gold, but tiny. Gonna spend his time inspecting this a moment, before knocking on the wall. Listen, Radiant Garden castle had secret passages. He's leaving nothing to chance. ]

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-17 06:43 am (UTC)(link)
[ ...Well, now he has to figure out why this thing is even here. Anything else in this dead end, then, or was that it? ]

[ Okay, if he can, he's headed back. Anything back in the room that he missed that wasn't the body? ]

[Oh. Oh. This guy... doesn't look all that impressive, however, you can't really judge that kind of thing on appearances alone.

She'd like to meet the person responsible herself. While she doesn't know exactly what she can do, well-- that's not going to stop her from trying. No, she'll just have to forge her own path.
]

Hey, uh... if you're going to find them, then maybe... I could come with you...?
