    Wonderland wasn't always this way. There was a time when it mirrored medieval England, albeit with a few magical elements: a few quirks and eccentricities that made it truly unique. While all feared the Queen's mercurial temper and the fine blade of her Guillotine, all was well, until a little girl named Alice Liddell disturbed the status quo and sparked a revolution. The kingdom began to fall into decay as the taint of the modern world invaded. History is beginning to repeat itself and no one is happy. As the Queen of Hearts tangles in a battle of wits and riddles with the Cheshire Cat, the rest are starting to wonder ... is it true that the White Rabbit is bringing humans to Wonderland when they themselves are banned from going to London?

Leader: Jacqueline Monroe, Queen of Hearts — Those who choose red are swearing fealty to the Queen, and she is quite aware of those who go above and beyond in their allegiance to her reign. They're less likely to suffer from spontaneous execution or exile for the Queen is quite partial to those who favor her. Not that the Queen plays favorites, but those who choose red are more likely to experience the spoils and pleasantries of the Royal Court, one of the many ways the Queen shows gratitude to her loyal subjects. Of course, not everyone who sides with the Queen is doing it out of loyalty or fear – there are enemies at every turn, and some align red to get close to the Queen. And it would do you well to keep in mind that those who choose red are making immediate enemies with the Cheshire Cat.

Leader: Judas Alvarez, Cheshire Cat — To choose black is to choose the Cheshire Cat's side. Arguably the dark and shadowy faction, no one is quite sure what the Cheshire Cat's endgame is — whether it's to knock the Queen off her throne or simply play a few games with her due to boredom. Not everyone who chooses black flaunts it – some fear what they've chosen, but in the Cat's mind, once you've declared your loyalty to him, there's no take-backs. Siding with the Cheshire Cat means you're less likely to be blackmailed by Wonderland's Most Devious (or so he'd like you to think), but while the dark side can be fun, the Queen considers it a personal declaration of war, which could be very good or very bad in the end, depending on who wins.

Leader: Fintan Travers, White Rabbit — Not a leader so much as Wonderland's Official Abductor and thus the only truly impartial party, the White Rabbit controls Wonderland's influx of humans. You see, grey is the color of the undecided. In Wonderland history, the Queen and Cat's game is fairly recent, so not every Wonderlander has fully committed to one side. The Queen and the Cat are both aware of who hasn't decided, and they've been known to court potential useful pieces to their side. Additionally, every human who lands in Wonderland is immediately cast with a permanent grey band on their wrist; everyone is allowed to pick which side they'd prefer to support. But be sure not to take too long, for Wonderland has been known to cast players herself, and you may not like where she places you.
