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.

Tamatoa | Moana

Killing Time
[ Did you ever see an 11 feet tall sparkly crab in a portait gallery? Did you want to? Actually, you're not getting a say in the matter. Tamatoa is here and he's very, very hard to overlook. ]

What's the point of keeping so many pictures of puny humans around? They're not even pretty. Actually the whole paintings aren't pretty - way too dark, those colors, nothing is... vibrant.

[ Tamatoa hasn't been an art critic until this very second, but feel free to consider him a professional. Shh. ]

Formal Ball
[ Tamatoa isn't particularly worried about this motive or anything much. He may have been shrunken down to an annoying level, but he has a shell and everyone else here... kind of doesn't have that. He knows he's more likely to be culprit than target and that's what matters.

So he's going to enjoy himself.

He's dancing.

Sorry to whoever else was on the dance floor and now constantly has to make room to let a swirling giant crab pass by. ]

Body Discovery

Sooo... is anyone eating that? Because if we leave her here to rot that's going to get nasty and I could use the snack.

[You would think that a giant, sparkly crab would be hard to miss. But on a dance floor, twirling around-- it's kind of like he's everywhere.]

Hey-- [Left...] Watch--!! [No, no, back to the right. Quick. Before... nope. Too late.] ...woah!!

[But she's not going down. Instead, she grabs a hold of his shell and holds on as tightly as she can.

Whatever you do Tamatoa, don't stop suddenly or anything. what she'd be saying if she wasn't so focused on not losing her grip.

[ There is something intensely irritating about feeling the difference in his subjective experience of Moana's weight between his normal size and now. Where on an ordinary day he could move swiftly with about 10 Moanas on top of him, now it's actually a bother. He can still carry her pretty easily of course, but even feeling that gives her more importance than he thinks she's worth. ]

Hey! Hasn't anyone told you it's rude to interrupt someone else's musical number? Why didn't you take a good lesson from the last incident?

[ And because saying 'let go of me' is beneath him, he makes an attempt to shake her off actively. ]

[It's not like she was trying to irritate him. Or mess up his musical number for that matter. In fact, she'd been trying to avoid doing just that. But her stride was inferior to that of the giant crab's. Moana never stood a chance.

And shes not doing that great right now either; swinging back and forth as he shakes his body.

I wasn't trying to interrupt--!!

[If she doesn't think of something soon, she's going to get flung off. Come on, Moana, think...]

It was a really good dance, okay! I just... wanted... to get a better look...

[Please don't kill her.]
decopod: (What did you just say?)

[personal profile] decopod 2017-03-18 12:17 am (UTC)(link)
[ That does get him to stop moving - pretty abruptly, too, but iiiif Moana holds on for this last shake she'll be fine. Yay? ]

Last time you told me something like that, a pest of a wannabe-God appeared out of nowhere to rob me.

[ So he's got the sense to be distrustful this time. For like... all of 10 seconds. ]

But he's not here now. [ Maui would definitely have done something dumb up until now, he's so so sure. ] Soooo... you mean it?

[She holds on for the most part-- only losing her grip once he'd stopped; momentum sending her back a bit, but she stays on her feet! That's good enough for her.]

Of course I do! I mean...

[It's not a lie as long as there's a-- glimmer, so to speak-- of truth, right?]

Okay, so maybe Maui was the one who told me about you last time, but come on. You left a pretty big impression with that song, you know?

Now that's a belated answer if I ever heard one. Of course, I did.

You could've just told me earlier, y'know - like when you left our little get-together so hastily.

[ An exaggerated sigh. ]

I'll be generous and forgive the delay for today.

You no-good...nobody's going to eat her!

[so offended tbh]

[ If he had eyebrows he would be raising them, but he doesn't because he's a crab. Instead he tilts his head quizzically. ]

And what else do you suggest we do with her? It's a crab-eat-all world out there and this would be a terrible waste.

I...I don't know! But you can't just eat her! Can't we find some way to bury her?
