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.

[If the group must stay here for the foreseeable future, then at least their stupid captors were kind enough to leave them with some entertainment.

Today, for an hour or so already, Wendy's planted her butt in the film room, spending her day reclined and diving through the old film reels; movies of trains moving, and horses racing, and all of it's silent.

But hey, it reminds her of home.


[Wendy leans back against one of the walls of the ballroom, content to watch the rest of the room and get involved in their captor's crummy excuse for a party as little as possible. But she has decided to dress formally for this.

She's... wearing the exact same clothes as she normally does, with the addition of simple, black bowtie around her neck.

Pure class.


[Naturally, the rank scent of blood in the air is sure to draw attention no matter where you happen to be at the time.

That means Wendy comes running latter then the rest, and skids to a stop right before the corpse, holding her nose. She fought off a gagging sensation in her throat, trying to use her anger to swallow it.

Aww, yuck, man! I thought we all agreed that hunting the deer was a no-go!

What is all of this, then? How are you getting that to appear, is it some sort of magic?

[Alice walks in and, naturally, immediately becomes inquisitive about the moving pictures.]

[Wendy looks up like it's no big deal, spotting Alice staring on quizzically at the screen.]

Sup? [A lazy wave beckons her.] What? You're saying you've never watched a movie before?

Movie? What an odd name for - oh! I get it! They call it that because it's a bunch of moving pictures, is that it?

[She's quick to catch on to things, if nothing else.]
kindaruledatit: (Okay....?)

[personal profile] kindaruledatit 2017-03-21 08:28 pm (UTC)(link)
...You're saving you've never seen a movie before?

[Girl, what sheltered life have you lead?!]
