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.

J. Jonah Jameson | Marvel 616

[In every murdergame, there's always one person - an individual who seems to be so angry with their situation that they take it out on the people around them. Imagine the most frustrated individual you've ever seen, multiply the anger they were feeling by ten and you'll have Jameson at this very moment. He's yelling at nobody in particular, though won't hesitate to turn his attention to you if you step in his general direction.]

Do you know who you're dealing with here!? Nobody kidnaps J. Jonah Jameson and gets away with it! My lawyers'll be on you like friggin' dogs, you hear me!?

[With a cigar wedged in his mouth and his fist balled tight, he shakes it at anyone who steps his way. He yells all sorts of gibberish like the above, not stopping until he's interrupted.]


[JJ is a journalist, and goddamnit, he knows when this shit gets serious. He holds off the tasteless venison joke for now. That can wait till later.

The man has armed himself with a camera and is out photographing every stray bit of evidence he can find. He captures the body from every possible angle, and every little item that seems remotely out-of-place gets photographed.

He sits at a table, puffing at his cigar, looking over some polaroids. Jolly Jonah is in his element.]



[JJJ has retrieved something...interesting from the machine today. We're not very sure what this costume is supposed to be, but he manages to look both ecstatic and livid about it at the same time. If you approach him, he shakes the mask in your direction.]

You see, I told you that webslinging menace was involved, and now I've got the proof in my own goddamn hands!
