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.

What... what does she do. Oh, god. She brings her blouse up to her nose, to cover both it and her mouth, and she's all shaky and pale as she turns and unsteadily walks out. ]

H... help!
rollerscoater: Calling for help. (starts to seem reasonable)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
[She probably didn't ask for one of the tiniest people in the mansion to come running around the corner, but have a mouse anyway.]

Naminé! What's the matter?

[ By now, it's really set in, and she's absolutely distraught--the tears have started, but she's at least coherent enough to say, ]

I-in the kitchen... M-Mufasa...
rollerscoater: Surprised. (pirate disco going on here)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, no... Another one? Oh, the poor man. Did you see what happened?
chainbroke: (aihasuicons2)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:30 am (UTC)(link)
I-I didn't... I was getting something to eat, and I noticed...
rollerscoater: Pitying look. (nope)

[personal profile] rollerscoater 2017-03-19 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
Why, we've got to get everyone in here! We need to solve this before something else happens!

[Oh, hey, that creepy dude is here. He looks dismissively at her behind a pair of sunglasses.]

It is far too early to have to listen to this noise.
chainbroke: (aihasuicons)

[personal profile] chainbroke 2017-03-19 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
[ This is definitely helping! ]

I-I'm sorry, it's-- Mufasa--

Did he finally eat somebody, then? I had always thought that having a lion on the list of guests was odd, especially considering the amount of mice that are a part of our entourage.

[ So hearing Naminé call or help he comes rushing, because he has a guess. He's gonna beeline to the body and begin checking it out. The smell. Anything specific he can liken it to? Also we're guessing he looks very, very poisoned and there's probably meat out somewhere. ]

[ she's still wary as heck of you but thanks for taking one for the team, dudeguy. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ His heart belongs again to darkness)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
[ Probably smart, considering he's doing this for himself. Sorry except not. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
[ So. Beef and poison. Hm. Given what he knows of this, he's going to look around. Any obvious clues, anything seem out of place? If they left Mufasa like this, they probably didn't clean up too well. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
[ First of all, he's gonna look in the sink and counter area. Surely someone left something there. ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
[ What ingredients? And also, what's on that paper? ]
returntodarkness: (♥ From those dark depths are hearts born)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
[ ...Did someone seriously make beef wellington to poison a lion. Well, then, he's going to keep that in mind and look through the cabinets, along the floor, under things... Anyone stupid enough to leave something telling? ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
[ Seemingly random. If he can imagine objects, or even a person moving around, would they still seem random? Or like a lion was attacking someone after realizing he was poisoned? ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-19 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
[ ...What if the person was small? Say, the size of a mouse almost? ]
