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.

rollerscoater: Pitying look. (nope)

[She's gonna approach cautiously, then, and look at the traces of pixie dust in the fur from the other threads.]

Strange. Nothing in a dark place like this usually sparkles.
powertobite: (Inspection)

[Huh yeah, isn't that unusual. Eboshi carefully pinches a few flecks from the fur, rubbing it between her fingers and looking at it real closely.]

It's finer than sand, or bits of gold...but it shines splendidly. And it must get everywhere if you're not careful. Where could it have come from...?
rollerscoater: Surprised. (pirate disco going on here)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 02:13 pm (UTC)(link)
It could be from somebody's clothes, don't you think?
powertobite: (Oh you know)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-20 12:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Possibly. Though that doesn't explain why it would be all over her...and I can't recall seeing anyone with clothes carrying a sparkle so fine.
rollerscoater: Inspecting something. (i mean seriously)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-20 01:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, then we've got to check everyone!
powertobite: (Affable contemplation)

[personal profile] powertobite 2017-03-21 12:04 am (UTC)(link)
That's a good place to start. I doubt it's easy to clean this off, even if the killer tried.

[God, they've probably got glitter in places nobody wants to check...]
