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.

[killing time]

[There's really only one thing that Wall-e does to "kill time", and that's cleaning up garbage or playing with random things he finds. As such, it's easy to find Wall-E wandering around, picking random objects up and examining them, attempting to determine whether or not it's trash or worth keeping.

That is, until he reaches the room with the projector.]


[Despite the fact that the films that it plays are silent (and possibly creepy), Wall-e actually stops in it's tracks here and watches one of them play out. He seems to find it interesting enough to hold his attention, despite it not being Hello Dolly. If anyone comes in to join him, he will wave a hand at them, before then pointing to the screen inquisitively.

What is this movie that's playing on the screen right now, we're curious about it.]

[happy haunts]

[Wall-e is not used to ghost shenanigans, so when the piano starts playing by itself, or when he thinks he's noticed a portrait looking at him funny, he rolls back towards it and tilts his head at these things in confusion.

It's not until a sudden loud noise, whether it be from an object falling at random or a door suddenly slamming shut, causing the robot to yell in alarm and speed away from the noise... and right into whoever happens to be walking right by here.]

[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.]

Fiddleford Mcgucket | Gravity Falls

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 05:37 am (UTC)(link)
[A. Killing Time]

[The conservatory sounds almost nice until Fiddleford actually gets there and finds it just as dusty and cobweb-covered as everywhere else. At least there are no portraits to watch him here, which is a marked step-up over the rest of this place.]

Y'know I bet some of these'd perk right up with a little water...

[Look. Desperate, dogged, stupid optimism is all he has right now. He turns to look for a can, takes a single step, runs smack into an expansive spider web and screams like a little girl.]

[B. Body Discovery]

[This is... incredibly conflicting. On the one hand a dead deer isn't all that abhorrent to a country boy who grew up butchering his own pigs. On the other hand this dead deer could talk. So... yeah. Weird. He didn't like that the deer could talk but that wasn't really grounds for murder.

At least it being a deer means he isn't in complete hysterics like he would be if it was a human. Honestly he's more annoyed that whoever did this wasn't even intending to make use of the meat. What a waste. Is that wrong of him? He feels like it probably is kind of wrong, in a way. Sorry, Bambi's mom. Not his fault how he was raised.

He does know what a freshly-killed animal ought to look like, though. Are there any bullet-holes? Stab wounds?]

[I. Waking Up ]

[ There is a heaviness to him when he awakens that there shouldn't be. His first thought is to simply become incorporeal. But there is something wrong. He cannot blend with shadow like he could before. With a grunt, vivid golden eyes open and he raises a hand to the ceiling. ...What's happening...? ]

Where is my strength...?

[ It's almost as if he were human again. Did he not shed that form long ago for the positives this would give? Slowly, he pushes himself off the bed. And then he hovers. Strange. Is this only as far as he can go? A bit forward and he plummets, boot landing on the floor. ...Who did this to him? ]

...So. There is one who thinks they can bind me in mortal flesh? I must have words with this insolent...

[ He clenches a fist then releases it. Fine. Fine. Let's continue onward and investigate. ]

[ II. Body Discovery ]

[ Now that he's more used to his more... Mortal limitations, and he knows the vague rules of this place, he doesn't mind investigating the body that's been discovered. He's formerly a brilliant scientist, after all. He knows anatomy. So, then, he's going to kneel, keeping him gloves on so that he doesn't obscure anything. ]

...Why would one murder a deer? Could they not hope to end the life of any of the others here...?

[ 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?

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-17 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
[ Since it was mentioned it's in pieces, how many? And also, what was it cut with? Or was it simply just torn apart? ]

It's not the gore that bothers him -- again, when you grow up on a hog farm you get used to animal gore and lots of it at a very young age -- but the precise and utterly over-the-top nature of the gore. She was a talking deer! She could form whole sentences! You don't do this to a thing that can form whole sentences!]


[What about the blood? Is it just in a pool around the body, or are there splatters leading anywhere... that is, are there clues as to whether the butchering started before or after she came to rest in this spot?]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-17 05:58 am (UTC)(link)
[ Smaller blade? Bigger or smaller than a scalpel? Because he would definitely recognize that. ]

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-17 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
[ Listen, he needs a reference. So. Someone skilled with a dagger. And given the above reply to Fiddleford, the girl went through the ringer. Hm... So. the leg and ear. They nearby? Or just completely gone from the scene? ]
returntodarkness: (♥ Welcome the darkness into you)

[personal profile] returntodarkness 2017-03-17 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
[ There a blood trail, then? He's gleaned what he can from the body, he thinks, given the tags between here and Fiddleford, but those body parts were deliberately cut so where are they? ]
terribibble: (9 | this is how i took my SATs)

[personal profile] terribibble 2017-03-17 06:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, that's what he was hoping wasn't the case. Yikes. Someone in this mansion is a real troubled individual, huh? Just a regular old, old, disturbed, old -- okay. Sorry. Almost lost it just a little bit there. It's fine. He's fine. He can deal with the dead talking deer it's still just a deer it's fine.

Didn't she mention she had a son?

It's fine it's great nothing about the implications of this is bothering him at all. Okay. This happened after she died. Maybe that's good? She didn't have to suffer through it? Yeah, let's go with that. Okay. Back under control. Let's... let's investigate this dead deer. She deserves that much respect since whoever killed her didn't have any.

Hey speaking of, maybe he should move her. If there aren't marks on the other side of her that will confirm she wasn't stabbed before she fell, right? It's good to have things definite. So here he goes, attempting to turn her over or at least lift her up. It's tampering with the crime scene but he has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, not Forensics, get off his back.]

[Tip pokes her head in. It's one of those old horror films, but it's got surprisingly good creepy music to go along with it.]

I'm not sure you should be watching something like this. [She sits down next to him.] I'm not sure I should be watching something like this.

[ ...Well. He's still a Heartless, even if he is feeling a lot more human. Anything sharpened senses might pick up if any of those are actually still active at all? Or is this a dead end? Still. Someone seems to have wanted a damn trophy. ]
pardonmylanguage: (freaked out)

[personal profile] pardonmylanguage 2017-03-17 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
[While Tip's seen people die before, it's mostly been from lasers and stuff. Quick obliteration, or at least no blood. Plus, this deer was a mom. With a young kid somewhere...Either way, she's come up to look at it as well.]

Is there anything you can do with one ear? [She can see why someone might want to chop off a leg.]

[ YUP. Gonna go investigate that. ]
