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.

Killing Time

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 06:47 am (UTC)(link)
[Jiminy isn't the only anxious middle-aged man who's found his way into this room. He's familiar with movies -- in fact, he saw Galaxy Battles several times in theaters -- but he's never watched anything like these old reels before.

He is also not exactly used to being on the lookout for tiny sentient bugs. If Jiminy weren't moving he probably wouldn't even see him, but he's the kind of guy who's anxious enough to pick up on minute movement and assume it's someone coming at him to kill him. At least here it's a reasonable fear.]

Ah -- oh. It's you. Uh.

[Yeah. He still doesn't know how to deal with a talking bug in a tiny little suit. It's capital-W Weird.]

[He raises a bit of an eyebrow, but he doesn't seem too perturbed.]

Yessiree, it's me.

Want me to switch chairs? [Because goodness know he's taking up so much space in this one.]
terribibble: (84 | a little bit nauseous)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 07:01 am (UTC)(link)
Nnnno. No, that won't be necessary.

[Ha ha ha yikes.]

... I'm sorry, Mister [AhhhhHHHH] Cricket. I'm not bein' all that mannerly, am I. It's just there's been a lot to get used to without, uh, well -- Well where I'm from animals don't talk is the thing and I don't mean to be insensitive but it's odd, is all.

[Guess who babbles when he's nervous? Nervous, about offending a cricket. Jesus Christ.]
whistlenotchirp: (You should be whistling)

[personal profile] whistlenotchirp 2017-03-17 07:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Okay now he's perturbed.]

How grand that must be for you then.
terribibble: (76 | that's for normal boys)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 07:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Heck. He's tarring this up real bad, isn't he?]

I'm not sayin' it's bad.
whistlenotchirp: (Nobody listens to the conscience)

[personal profile] whistlenotchirp 2017-03-17 07:25 am (UTC)(link)
Uh-huh. Let me tell you something, Fiddleford. Something I told my good pal Pinoc' once.

[This might be a lie.]

Sit down and don't do anything stupid.

[It was 100% a lie.]
terribibble: (79 | anybody still online)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 07:33 am (UTC)(link)
Rrright. Right.

[Yeah. Okay. He's just gonna -- yeah. Sit. Seat. Okay. Maybe with a seat between him and the cricket. Yeah. Good.

If Jiminy were a human man maybe he'd be angry right now at such a display of rudeness, but getting told off by a talking cricket is enough to hush him up.

He watches the movie in silence for all of five minutes before he says:]

Sorry. For bein' rude.
whistlenotchirp: (This cricket's ready to talk you down)

[personal profile] whistlenotchirp 2017-03-17 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Ugh. Don't make him feel bad, he's the conscience here.]

Consider it a free lesson from your conscience and don't worry a thing about it.
terribibble: (32 | they tried to make a good head)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 07:47 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, well. Fiddleford had a short-lived gig as Ford Pines' conscience so it's a skill he's got too. The issue is the Ford was much more shitty and stubborn than Pinocchio, and also he never had to spend any time in a whale. It would've fixed him up good probably.]

My... conscience?

[Jiminy Cricket, known braggart, takes this opportunity to fish his fancy little badge out of his jacket.]

Yep. Official Conscience, right here.
terribibble: (7 | his face looks like a big ol bean)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-18 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Y'know I suppose if a cricket had to have a job that's about as good of one as any. A conscience is somethin' we need here more than most things.

[What with... y'know. The murders and all.]

I like to think I'm pretty good one at that. Certified by the Blue Fairy herself.
