Greetings from Lady Julienne fille Gaspard
- Hi! I am Lady Julienne fille Gaspard, mka Jewel Shuping. I reside in
the Kingdom of Atlantia. When I was first introduced to the SCA, one
of the first people to get me involved was Mu'allim Rabah az-Zafir,
who is very much into gaming and such. Since then, I have been so very
interested in gaming, and especially the not-so-common ones.
Where am I going with this? Oh yea, I want to volunteer at the Gaming
Tent, maybe even teach a class on Four Seasons Chess (one of my
absolute favourite variants of chess) or another game. I'm currently
learning Nyout ("Horses"), which is a lot of fun, and trying to learn
Ho-hpai (Korean dominoes), and might be able to do something with
Nyout, but don't think I'll be good enough at Ho-hpai to teach
So here I am. What can I do to help?
Vivat the Dream,
Lady Julienne fille Gaspard, mka Jewel Shuping

- Welcome Lady Julienne!
We would love to have your help at Pennsic. Check out the last couple
of messages starting with:
That will bring you up to date with the plans so far.
Four Seasons Chess is *very* popular at the Games Tent, and we'd love to
have a class on it. Nyout is another good one, but I've not played it
much. Ho-hpai I don't know much about - how far back can we document
it? I know dominoes go back pretty far in China, but not so far in Europe.
(We're not sticklers for must-be-period games, but when teaching we want
to be clear which ones are period, just out of period, or modern)
Anyway - more games are always good :)
