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.

Professor Padriac Ratigan | Great Mouse Detective

[Killing Time]

Well, killing time was tragic in its own right. He'd much rather be off killing...other things. Or at he very least trying to rebuild the shambles of his Criminal Empire, which was in shambles because of his ...apparent demise.

Still, there was not much else he could do at the moment.

The dapper, overly large ra--mouse--wandered into the conservatory. He was wearing a very fine suit, holding a top hat in his paws, with a red cape flapping roguishly behind him.

"Not the most cheerful place in the world, but not so bad for criminal activities," he chuckled quietly to himself, practically dancing through some dead peonies, his large tail dragging behind him.

[Body Discovery]

He was drawn by the familiar scent of death, though it didn't have the same certain smell as the usual rodent deaths. Well, the ones that Felicia hadn't eaten, anyway.

Hmm. He quite missed that cat.

Ratigan wrinkled his nose and approached the body carefully. He was a brilliant mastermind, and despite being a criminal, he could deduce just as quickly and easily as that miserable Basil of Baker Street.

Though, the means wasn't as in question, as was the motive. And was anyone else in any danger?

A great grin.

It seemed a new game had begun.

[The Hatter is out inspecting the plants today, after multiple rounds of CPR, he has realized they're not coming back. Still, when he sees Ratigan prancing about, he calls out to him.]

Mr. Big-Mouse! [They've already had this discussion.] Would you be so kind as to perhaps hug one of the flower stems until it revives itself, perhaps a little bit of compassionate nonsense and magic whats-it will be just what these things need!
