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.

Yeah! If they don't even have photography where you come from, how could they even get photos there? [She doesn't sound that convinced, though.]

Even if it's real...I won't let them take my mom. I'll destroy them before that happens. [The plastic cup crumples slightly in her hand.]
powertobite: (In my sights)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-18 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
You know, that is exactly what I was thinking. [A measured sip.] Still, even if such a thing is real...I admire that tenacity of yours. I feel much the same about my town.
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-18 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I nearly lost her once. I'm not going to let that happen ever again.
powertobite: (Come again?)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-18 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
[...You'll be one to watch, Tip. Or, well, watch out for. A girl so young with this kind of strength should never be underestimated.]

I'm certain she's fine, and more worried for you. How about this - after we're done at this party, we'll see who else doesn't believe their photographs and toss them into the fireplace.
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-18 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
Well. That sounds like it would be much more relaxing than this. [She waves her hand at the other people dancing, before taking another sip of water.]
powertobite: (Side-eye)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-18 02:50 pm (UTC)(link)
If nothing else, it will be cathartic.

[Girl's night for burning pictures? Girl's night for burning pictures.]

And then we can see each other to our rooms safely. In such atmospheres, it's best to move in groups.

[Either for protection against attacks or to make sure you have an alibi when you're innocent.]
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-19 09:40 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. Might be good to remind everyone near the end of the ball, whenever that is. [She has the feeling some people here are just going to keep partying until the next morning if possible.]
powertobite: (Glad to see you)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-19 01:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh dear, don't do that kids, we'll never be able to run a trial in that kind of condition.]

It's got to peter out at some point. Exhaustion eventually sets in.
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-20 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I know. Just worried it'll make them careless.
powertobite: (Side-eye)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-20 12:50 pm (UTC)(link)
That's a good worry to have, because it is possible.

[Part of why she's not dancing. Let her be alert.]
pardonmylanguage: I can't believe that worked (disbelieving)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-20 05:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I mean, morale's important, but if it's our captors organizing it... [She'd be much less suspicious if someone set up a board game night or something in the library. More bored, perhaps, but less suspicious.]
powertobite: (Come again?)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-21 12:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, Eboshi would be more suspicious of that herself. A motive's only bad if someone takes action.]

I've resigned myself to accepting that little our hosts do will actually be beneficial or make sense.
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-24 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Tip sighs, waving a hand.] Yeah, ghosts. What can you do?
powertobite: (Affable contemplation)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-25 01:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[A smile.]

Resistance is, I've found, a difficult path, but also the most fruitful.
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-27 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
Someone's got to stand up and refuse to take any more crap. [A pause] Pardon my language.
powertobite: (pfffftAHAHAHAHA)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-27 12:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Eboshi's nose scrunches a little, and she laughs.] Language pardoned - I've heard worse.
pardonmylanguage: (smile)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-29 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
[She blushes a bit, but smiles as well.] It's just kind of a habit, you know. I try not to use that kind of language now that I've got my mom back and the aliens are leaving.
powertobite: (Glad to see you)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-29 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, if it slips out, I shan't chide you. A lady is a lady no matter how she speaks.

[Her girls in Irontown are still ladies, after all.]
