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.

Miss Bianca | The Rescuers

[This is not her porcelain pagoda. Yes, that's from the books only, but I had to make the joke. Either way, Miss Bianca wakes up on a human-sized bed, which is alarming enough without all this other stuff going on.

She'll wander carefully out of the room and look up and around, slowly taking note of all the people. She raises a paw hesitantly, fully expecting anyone larger than her not to understand her or to freak out, but some humans do understand animals, so...]

Hello? Excuse me, could you please explain things here?


[Bianca sprays on a tiny bottle of perfume and tucks it into her coat before walking carefully into the ballroom. She quickly starts to climb on top of the nearest piece of furniture by the wall.]

Would anybody like to dance? I do wish it wasn't so hazardous, but you only live once, don't you?

[Where's that s- oh, t's a mouse! Here's a man with a very, very, large hat who seems to have very little trouble understanding you.]

Oh! Hello, down there!

[Perhaps a bit drastically, he's on the ground, feet up in the air. He wants to be eye-level with her, you've got to understand.]

Yes, that would be rather nice - the ability to explain things, I mean! Unfortunately, it's hard to think with all of this blasted dust hanging around! Clogs up the brain functions and all that.
rollerscoater: Surprised. (pirate disco going on here)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-20 01:33 pm (UTC)(link)
The brain functions? Oh, I'm not quite sure that's how it works, you know!

[personal profile] cleancup 2017-03-20 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure it does! How is something supposed to work when it's covered in dust, my dear?
rollerscoater: Worried/unhappy. (and no one believes in you)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-20 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I've heard of allergies, but...

[personal profile] cleancup 2017-03-21 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
What kinds have you heard of? I've heard of a great deal of allergies as well!
rollerscoater: Worried/unhappy. (and no one believes in you)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-22 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
Ah... never mind that. Have you any idea why we're here?
kindaruledatit: (Nice)

[Wendy hears a voice and- whoa! She almost steps on the mouse and very quickly backtracks. She's hardly a stranger to seeing rodents running around, having lived in the forest...

But one dressed so stylish is a new on on her.

Whoa, dude! [crouches!] Sorry, dude, almost stepped on you.
rollerscoater: Gasping. (oh crap)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-20 11:47 pm (UTC)(link)

Oh! Ah-- oh, that's quite alright! We usually aren't noticed very often.
kindaruledatit: (This is bogus)

[personal profile] kindaruledatit 2017-03-25 08:06 am (UTC)(link)
[10/10 she's actually pretty impressed. the fact that you're talking. Um.

Whoa! Dude, you're... [She crouches down low, peering.] You're talking? Can you just do that?

[Jiminy is about an inch shorter than Bianca, but an inch is can make a lot of difference at their size. Nonetheless, he lifts his hat up in pleasant greeting.]

I wouldn't mind a dance, Miss Bianca. Good night for it.

[He's... mostly gotten over his fear that Bianca is a rat and thus a potential bug eater.]
