Alfaerie Expansion Set 5

Welcome to expansion set 5! This set is a another group effort, that group being Christine Bagley-Jones, Michael Howe, Jeremy Good and Joe Joyce. Looking over the pieces, there is such an assortment, that I am basically going to list them in two sections: Misc. and Shogi-based. Many thanks to the above group of folks, especially the tireless Christine.
