Queen = Dame (means Lady)

There's always a grey area here... In both chess and card games, the Queen is sometimes refered to as Dame (which does indeed mean Lady), but equally often as Koningin (which is a direct translation of Queen) and Vrouw (which means little more than Woman). And while we're on the subject of card games, the King is equally often called Koning (which is a direct translation of King) and Heer (which means Lord). I've never heard anybody call a chess King 'Heer' though...

And I still a bit dizzy with the Queen, as no queen took sword in a battle and stronger than her husband Razz

I know, it's weird. But the Queen isn't historically correct, in the early days of Chess, the Queen was called the General, which makes more sense.

It originally was an Elephant (or War Elephant)... They later mistook the Elephant's tusks for the Bishop hat. Razz

Horse resemble knight, rock resemble siege tower, peons resemble man at arms.

True.

But in the original form of Chess, the Rook resembles a Chariot.

Oh yes, we could make a K&B based chess set.

= Lord
= Hashashin
= Siege Tower
= Bishop
= Knight
= Peasant

If you want a military unit, I suggest making it Spearman. Men-at-Arms are a bit too valuable for that.

It does indeed. And since one of our subcivs is the Persians, I suppose it's pretty obvious it'll be one of their units.

I just remember about Japanese and Chinese style of chess, if I'm right, the chinese one is Paisho.

I like shogi, similar to chess but you are able to use your opponents pieces against them. Very interesting. I haven't tried Paisho, but I have tried Go. Go is fun and very difficult to play. I need to try it again though, I forgot how to play a bit.

I find it fascinating, simple rules, but extremely complex to play. It has been described as playing four games of chess at once on the same board.
