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]

[There's really only one thing that Wall-e does to "kill time", and that's cleaning up garbage or playing with random things he finds. As such, it's easy to find Wall-E wandering around, picking random objects up and examining them, attempting to determine whether or not it's trash or worth keeping.

That is, until he reaches the room with the projector.]


[Despite the fact that the films that it plays are silent (and possibly creepy), Wall-e actually stops in it's tracks here and watches one of them play out. He seems to find it interesting enough to hold his attention, despite it not being Hello Dolly. If anyone comes in to join him, he will wave a hand at them, before then pointing to the screen inquisitively.

What is this movie that's playing on the screen right now, we're curious about it.]

[happy haunts]

[Wall-e is not used to ghost shenanigans, so when the piano starts playing by itself, or when he thinks he's noticed a portrait looking at him funny, he rolls back towards it and tilts his head at these things in confusion.

It's not until a sudden loud noise, whether it be from an object falling at random or a door suddenly slamming shut, causing the robot to yell in alarm and speed away from the noise... and right into whoever happens to be walking right by here.]

[Tip pokes her head in. It's one of those old horror films, but it's got surprisingly good creepy music to go along with it.]

I'm not sure you should be watching something like this. [She sits down next to him.] I'm not sure I should be watching something like this.

[And yet, here we are, both watching this film.]

Oh? [He tilts his head a little at that. Why, is there something wrong with--

And then there's a sudden scream from one of the actors in the film, the noise startling enough that Wall-e's eyes and arms momentarily retract within the metal casing of his body. After a few seconds, he pokes his eyes back up from the top to look again... is it safe to look again...]

[What, her mom isn't here.]

Yeah, it's kind of-[The scream happens, and she flinches mostly from seeing Wall-e's own retraction. Wow, reminds her of those cheap fast food robot toys.]

...yeah, and there's going to be more stuff like that.
trashcubes: (hey I've got an idea...)

[personal profile] trashcubes 2017-03-18 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
[Well that's not good. Wall-E now fully extends himself back out again, and turns his attention to the projector itself as he rolls up to it. Is there something else here they could watch instead?]

... Oh!

[Wall-E picks up one of the film reels, holding it up for Tip to see.

... It's more than likely another scary one, but we have no way of being able to tell until we actually play it.]
pardonmylanguage: (speaking)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-18 01:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tip looks at the title. Probably...another scary one. Still, maybe they can try it.]

Sure, we can watch this one. [She glances back.] You got any idea how to work that thing? [She points at the projector with her thumb.]
