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.

Absolutely not! He calls this a "formal ball" - hah! This might be formal, but there aren't even any balls in here! No baseballs, soccer balls, nothing!

[thank you for your astute observation, hatter]

[Give her a second to stare at your observation before Eboshi laughs. It's a rather unexpected, undignified sound from such a lady, but it's honest.]

No, I suppose there are not! Do tell me, Mister Hatter, what balls would you prefer to find instead?

Well, there are bowling balls, tennis balls, cricket balls, volleyballs, mothballs - those don't work, you know. My mothballs were always the most classy of affairs, but they served to attract moths, rather than repel them. When you want to keep them from messing with your hats, it's quite the dilemma!
powertobite: (Glad to see you)

I imagine it would be! Did you bring it up to the person whom you got them from?

I didn't get them from anyone, I used to hold them! There was music and dancing and everything, but it didn't help with keeping them away and all!
powertobite: (Oh you know)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-21 12:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh - you held mothballs, I see.

[Balls for moths. Clever, very clever.]

Perhaps they thought you held them specifically for them to come calling.

Well, that's just stupid! Perish the thought! Mothballs aren't for attracting moths, that's not what they're for at all!
powertobite: (Glad to see you)

Consider the thought perished.

[Look she doesn't know what moths think in your world but in hers they fly around fire and often alight and die, so.]
