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.

Benjamin Franklin Gates | that movie with the declaration

waking up

[ Hm. This is... not where he expected to wake up. It's not nearly as cold as where he last was, for one, and...

Regardless, Ben's quick to get ou- no wait he's pacing around the room and looking at every damn thing and muttering about the era of history it looks like it came from. Then he goes outside of his room. And... investigates the walls and furniture some more, um. He doesn't seem too bothered about being kidnapped until he sees someone else. And then he will approach, but keep in mind - this is kids movie Nic Cage, but it's still Nic Cage approaching you in a haunted house. ]

Uh... pardon me, but... do you happen to have any idea how we got here? As interesting as this place is, I have an expedition to get back to.

Et Cetera, Et Cetera, Et Cetera

[ Well, he decided to try his luck with regains today! And he got some sort of... tube? The kind of tube big enough to hold like. A poster.

From his expression when he opens it, what's inside is definitely not an ordinary poster. Um. Excuse him, he's going to run full-tilt back to his room. ]

[Hard to do that, good man, when you end up bumping into a man with a very large hat. The collision ends up knocking him to the ground, and his hat rolls away.]

Watch where you're going, good sir! I will not allow my hat to be sullied by the likes of you!
