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.

[It's not like she was trying to irritate him. Or mess up his musical number for that matter. In fact, she'd been trying to avoid doing just that. But her stride was inferior to that of the giant crab's. Moana never stood a chance.

And shes not doing that great right now either; swinging back and forth as he shakes his body.

I wasn't trying to interrupt--!!

[If she doesn't think of something soon, she's going to get flung off. Come on, Moana, think...]

It was a really good dance, okay! I just... wanted... to get a better look...

[Please don't kill her.]

[ That does get him to stop moving - pretty abruptly, too, but iiiif Moana holds on for this last shake she'll be fine. Yay? ]

Last time you told me something like that, a pest of a wannabe-God appeared out of nowhere to rob me.

[ So he's got the sense to be distrustful this time. For like... all of 10 seconds. ]

But he's not here now. [ Maui would definitely have done something dumb up until now, he's so so sure. ] Soooo... you mean it?

[She holds on for the most part-- only losing her grip once he'd stopped; momentum sending her back a bit, but she stays on her feet! That's good enough for her.]

Of course I do! I mean...

[It's not a lie as long as there's a-- glimmer, so to speak-- of truth, right?]

Okay, so maybe Maui was the one who told me about you last time, but come on. You left a pretty big impression with that song, you know?

Now that's a belated answer if I ever heard one. Of course, I did.

You could've just told me earlier, y'know - like when you left our little get-together so hastily.

[ An exaggerated sigh. ]

I'll be generous and forgive the delay for today.
