Character Ideas and Prompts  
Note: These character ideas are meant to be played in a world like the one in the Looking Glass Wars

Twin vs. Twin

Surely the second born twin would have felt some resentment that her older sister of mere seconds was chosen to rule the Queendom, while she would remain little more than a princess as best.

Or were they so loyal to each other that it didn’t matter who ruled? Perhaps someone plotted to drive a wedge in between them and succeeded after years of trying.

Would they end up accidentally betraying each other over a possible love interest? Would their betrayal lead to hate? Which twin would win?

Through the Pool of Tears

Obviously it’s possible to travel both in and out of the Pool of Tears. So, theoretically, someone from out of our world could end up in Wonderland.

Perhaps, they had a hard time of it and ended up jaded and violent.

Maybe they could be a possible love interest for a Wonderlander character?

Would they have imaginative power also?

Would they be frightened? Would they be curious?

Would they try to earn their fortunes in Wonderland or would they be trying to get back home?

Do we want to have to where maybe the world of wonderland has the tendency to pull in psychopaths as in the delusional or catatonic? That was the case in American McGee's Alice. I don't know whether we wanted to include this.

Maybe they ended up going through another portal in a different part of Wonderland?

Would they be ambitious? Would the imaginative powers of the Wonderlanders scare them? Would their fear turn to hate? Would they try to trick and betray the Wonderlanders?

I have a few questions for you about character makeing. Do they have t be a part f the Looking Glass Wars version of wonderland? Could a charcter be based on a historical person that has a conection to the story? Such as people Dodgson and Liddell could have known in real life? And could Dodgson be in fact a character (perhaps on the background or secondary)in the pool of tears idea?

Absolutely.
We're actually not doing an entirely Looking Glass Wars rpg. All versions of Alice in Wonderland are welcome. We're trying to pull upon American McGee's Alice and Suzanne Collins' the Underlander Chronicles as well, but we just happen to be using the most from that particular series in our RPG.

A historical character? Absolutely. And if someone's willing to play Dodgson, I have no objections to him being in the game. It might actually be interesting to have him as a side character.

Re: Absolutely.

Re: Kinda random, but...
I do to! Began my unhealthy obsession with Bowie. And I all ready liked stories as it, so another story of going into another world is always good, the Alice in wonderland parallels helped. I kind of have the same love for both stories in different aspects.

So...
Have we decided anything other than that we're still going to do this?

Are we just using the Looking Glass Wars world or are we using the story line?
I'd rather steal the world and make up our own story line and whatnot. I like your ideas for characters much better than those in the book.

I remember my mom playing McGee's game, I think, but could you tell me more about that and Suzanne Collins' the Underlander Chronicles, Alex?
