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.

[ ... Well, there might not be a lot here in the mansion, but there's more than what Naminé is used to. Castle Oblivion didn't have much in the way of entertainment, but all of the entertainment here is... creepy... like those silent films. Naminé's thoroughly unsettled by them, but there has to be something good here... right? Sure.

... She pokes around in the seance room for a little while, too, before deciding it is definitely not for her, and she gets the heck out of dodge. Or catch her in the kitchen--she's had an appetite, strangely, since arriving here, so she's trying a lot of stuff... ]


formal ball
[ She doesn't know how to dance, but... why not? Naminé's opted to wear a simple white dress, which is exactly what she wore upon arriving here. Mostly she stays at the walls. Maybe convince her, somehow, to move away...?

... Or maybe the lights have gone out. She's staying close to the walls, still, but she manages to pluck up enough courage to step away and right into someone. Oops. ]

[ The lights are still on, but... the wall is nice! Olette will just. Stand here with u, Nams. ]

Not up for dancing either, huh?
chainbroke: (aihasuicons5)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
[ bless you, Olette. She's glad to have a pal with her. ]

Mm, not really... I don't know how to dance, either.
haynerpence: (neutral)

[personal profile] haynerpence 2017-03-19 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
I... can see how that would be a problem, yeah!

[ She giggles. ]

I'm in the same boat.
chainbroke: (aihasuicons5)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
If we had gotten more of a notice... maybe we could have learned.
haynerpence: (eyyy girl)

[personal profile] haynerpence 2017-03-19 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe.

[ After a moment, she holds out her hand. ]

You know...

[ Look, Olette's entire life is spent hanging around dumb boys. Some of that recklessness had to rub off on her eventually, right? And besides... ]

... if we work together, we could probably figure it out.

[ Dancing with Namine would be cool. Really cool. ]

[ ... oh well. This is fine!

Let's... go take a look. ]
chainbroke: (kh-66)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
[ NEVERMIND, THIS IS VERY NOT FINE.

What... what does she do. Oh, god. She brings her blouse up to her nose, to cover both it and her mouth, and she's all shaky and pale as she turns and unsteadily walks out. ]


H... help!
rollerscoater: Calling for help. (starts to seem reasonable)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
[She probably didn't ask for one of the tiniest people in the mansion to come running around the corner, but have a mouse anyway.]

Naminé! What's the matter?
chainbroke: (kh-66)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
[ By now, it's really set in, and she's absolutely distraught--the tears have started, but she's at least coherent enough to say, ]

I-in the kitchen... M-Mufasa...
rollerscoater: Surprised. (pirate disco going on here)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, no... Another one? Oh, the poor man. Did you see what happened?
chainbroke: (aihasuicons2)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
I-I didn't... I was getting something to eat, and I noticed...

[Oh, hey, that creepy dude is here. He looks dismissively at her behind a pair of sunglasses.]

It is far too early to have to listen to this noise.
chainbroke: (aihasuicons)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
[ This is definitely helping! ]

I-I'm sorry, it's-- Mufasa--

[personal profile] notjustanytoon 2017-03-19 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
Did he finally eat somebody, then? I had always thought that having a lion on the list of guests was odd, especially considering the amount of mice that are a part of our entourage.

[ So hearing Naminé call or help he comes rushing, because he has a guess. He's gonna beeline to the body and begin checking it out. The smell. Anything specific he can liken it to? Also we're guessing he looks very, very poisoned and there's probably meat out somewhere. ]

[ she's still wary as heck of you but thanks for taking one for the team, dudeguy. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ His heart belongs again to darkness)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
[ Probably smart, considering he's doing this for himself. Sorry except not. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
[ So. Beef and poison. Hm. Given what he knows of this, he's going to look around. Any obvious clues, anything seem out of place? If they left Mufasa like this, they probably didn't clean up too well. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
[ First of all, he's gonna look in the sink and counter area. Surely someone left something there. ]

[The Hatter is once again out and about, just chilling in the kitchen, when he raises an eyebrow at whatever Namine is eating.]

That could use mustard.

[It is, more likely than not, something that shouldn't have mustard anywhere near it.]
