Cam (short for Cameron!?) Neely was a (male) Boston Bruins ice hockey player, too (though Gilman didn't know it, yes Cam can be a woman's name, also even short for the UK Queen Consort's name Camilla). The word chess also means a form of grass. Words can sometimes have way more than one meaning.

Cam can be short for Camille, which is a woman's name.

your frog is an example of an amphibian which is a compound of two pieces which has more range than it's components. another example would be the governor a compound of of the raumschach unicorn and bishop. even another would be the silver general a compound of japanese pawn or as you call it, the point and ferz. maybe you should make an article on amphibians!

Interesting literary and cinematic themes. Micro-regional CVs for each college-university town in USA by extension would make 700 more CVs--just the ticket. With liberty to relate to recent 'Game Design,' comment follows there just using Isis as example.
