This is an amazing set of characters. It could be very useful in illustrating a book about variants. Among my own variants it could represent several including 125% Oriental variants, Courier Ashtaranga, Courier DLC, Courier Kamil, Electrum Chess, Fivequarters, Half Shoxiang, Mitregi, Shoxiang 108, Taijitu Qi, Unionschach, and Xiang Courier. If only the posting system had some font marker that could say 'font Quivira, font colour [colour of army], background colour alternately [colour of odd squares, colour of even squares]'. Notable omissions are any obvious representation for Knighted (let along Camelled) pieces, but one cannot have everything.
