Second, the position of the pieces is the exact one represented by the characters when Alice checkmates in Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass,” only with the black and white suits reversed, because I didn’t feel like coloring all of Chapel’s horses black.
The weight of the lance. The burden of my duty. CHARGE! I, like Sir Lancdelot before me, must protect my king at all costs! NEIGH NEIGH Checkmate, Chapel! Sometimes, chivalry only goes so far.

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies.
