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.

[this place isn't so bad. it's just a little bit... dreary. nothing a good cleaning won't fix!

today, Ariel is out in the halls with a bucket and a mop, sponging cobwebs off the walls. and she's doing a good job! until she turns around to clean the other side of the hall, and the cobwebs reform behind her back. and repeats. and repeats. and repeats.

it's been an hour.]


[Ariel is almost never not moving around quickly, usually in a clumsy and dangerously unsteady way. today, she's careening about even worse, and for one reason: she is currently in hot pursuit of a set of fine china, which had started with a ghost trying to freak her out and had ended with said ghost hightailing it the fuck outta there while Ariel decided that she sure as fuck wasn't letting living dinglehoppers escape from her collection.]

Come back! I'm sorry for grabbing you like that! [and if she trips over her dumb human feet and crashes right into you well. eggs. omelets. the breaking of them.]

[ The crash happens. The forks are making their desperate getaway. Regardless, Star is back on her feet in moments, dusting herself off and offering a hand to Ariel. ]

Wow, I love your hair!! Where are you going in a hurry?

Thanks-- [for a moment, it looks like she's just gonna get right up and keep going, but her brain suddenly recognizes that there was a question at the end of that compliment, and she stops.] Well, I was just looking at all the cool stuff in the kitchen [weird way to say stealing--] and some of the stuff started coming to life, so I grabbed one of the round things [plates] but I don't think it liked that so it started flying off and I started chasing it but I guess I wasn't really looking where I was going, and--

[well that was all in one sentence wasn't it. breathe.

she frowns at the direction the dinnerware went.]

Drat! I think they really got away this time.

[commotion and chaos is to Toad like...well, a fly to a toad. certainly he doesn't purposely cause it, and he definitely doesn't revel in it (at least not consciously), but let's just say that if he had to line chaos up with total boredom, it's pretty obvious which one would pique his interest more. if he doesn't find something to keep his attention in this stuffy old crypt, he might as well just become another piece of furniture gathering dust. ick.

so when Ariel runs by him, he not only has to hop up and away to avoid being thrown aside by her but the sheer fact that something has her so riled up to begin with is not only a cause for curiosity but enough to get his blood pumping. and— is she chasing someone? oh my, this just got interesting.]

I say, who are you after?! [—said beside her as he starts running after he trying to keep up with the two of them.]

Living dinglehoppers! [she's so het up by this discovery that she's momentarily forgotten the whole "use human words like a not-weirdo" schtick she's been trying.] They're so fast! I just gotta have them!

[Eboshi watches the display for about three minutes before she clears her throat.]

I have to admire your tenacity, but you'll need a more permanent solution if you want to get rid of those cobwebs.

[Like killing the spiders that make them. IF they're even being made by spiders. Ghost spiders?]

You're not being aggressive enough!

[holy shit without even any fucking warning the hatter just throws a goddamn OVERSIZED SHOE at one of the cobwebs, running into the fray.]

These cobwebs simply need to be shown who is the boss!

[Looking at the moving silverware does make her jump a tiny bit, before remembering where she is exactly. Still looking at Ariel chase after them is a little alarming, to say the least.]

Maybe if you try being more gentle with them, they will come back?

[It... could just be ghosts messing with her, but even if that's the case, Belle should prooobably be encouraging her not to just break everything in her path.]
