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.

Judge Doom | Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

[personal profile] notjustanytoon 2017-03-28 12:40 am (UTC)(link)

[Men like Judge Doom, men with vision, tend to be in control of their situations. To be placed in an ordeal where he's stripped of all power is truly audacious. As glamorous as this all might be, Doom is quick to call it when he sees it. This is a kidnapping situation, and kidnapping a government official warrants justice.

There's little to note about his surroundings outside the fact that he hobbles out of there as quickly as possible. After working in Toontown with the likes of Bugs Bunny and Droopy Dog, one tends to be desensitized by these sort of things. The house, as cartoonishly creepy as it might be, is nothing short of mundane to him. Upon reading the rules, however, he truly grows worried. As dignified as Doom carries himself, this is the first time where he feels that he doesn't have control of the situation. Had he been kidnapped as retribution for his own crimes?

No, that couldn't be it. He'll maintain the facade of stoicism for now. It's convenient for him, especially if others lurked about this realm.

So, Doom roams the place. Eyes peeled and scanning every room for details. The cane held in his right hand doubles as a swordstick - and he keeps it ready at all times. No telling what sort of maniac could be lurking around this anarchy-ridden hellhole...]


I would like to speak with you.

[No matter where you are, no matter what you're doing, you find yourself being cornered by the good judge. Someone has died, and Doom is seeking justice. His cape blows, despite the lack of wind, and he leans on his cane as he waits for a response.]

[Perry was busy looking for clues as to who could have possibly committed this horrible crime when he's interrupted by Doom and gives him a look.

Not that he was automatically distrusting of this man (although, let's be honest, with a name like "Doom", Perry figured that, best case scenario, he was a villain of some sort), but he didn't really need people trying to help solve this murder. Especially if this someone is even implying that he could possibly be a suspect.

Really he was far too good to even think of killing an innocent, but he supposed he could humor Doom enough to see what he wants before he just ignores him.]

[Bipedal animals. Perry was a toon of the worst sort. Though not necessarily chaotic as other toon animals advertised themselves to be, Doom held immediate prejudice against Perry for that reason alone. He places both hands on his cane, leaning forward, as if telling a secret to the platypus.]

I'm looking for a murderer.

[A toothy grin crosses his face.]

I don't suppose you'd mind telling me what you were doing last night, Mr. Platypus?
doesntdomuch: (uuugh)

[If Perry is intimidated by this, he doesn't show it as he glowers at Judge Doom. Soon he takes out his notepad to write a note.]

I was in bed. Asleep.

[After he gives the first note, he takes a bit longer with the second one.]

Mr. Doom, if you are assuming for a moment that I could have possibly done this, may I remind you that not only would I not kill someone over a silly "motive", that it's against my moral code to kill an innocent.

If you want to think I'm a suspect like this, I would have no choice but to assume that you have an ulterior motive for this.

Everybody is a suspect here, Mr. Platypus, you are no exception. Accounting for everybody's suspected whereabouts is our first step towards a solution, and I don't imagine anyone found themselves connecting too strongly with the doe, so any possible alibis based on personal connection are thrown out the window.

[If we're playing this game, Doom is an eager participant.]

My "ulterior motive" is justice.
doesntdomuch: (*Weirdo*)

I know all about justice, what the heck do you think I'm doing right now?

[He makes a gesture towards the room he was investigating before he was rudely interrupted.]

If you need an alibi from me, look at the body. As competent as I am, I'm far too small to sneak attack on someone like that, and it would need to be a sneak attack because trying to catch a scared deer is difficult, even at the best of times.

What's your alibi?

[Jiminy Cricket has seen a lot of shit in his time, both on the road and on duty as Official Conscience (see: badge). He's learned to expect the unexpected. He is, however, a simple cricket originally written an 1883 Italian writer who supported governmental methods to unite Italy and ensure kids are following these new government ideas known as "school". So that came some bias.

Some days that bias might include, to put it simply "FUCK ACTORS AND GAMBLING." Today that bias included "TRUST THE POLICE". And that tended to include judges.

A very patriotic cricket bows appropriately to the judge.
] Oh, well its an honor, sir! Anything I can do to help?
