I find the Sissa incredibly confusing. The Crooked Bishop a little less so, but only a little. The raven is straight-forward enough, and perhaps similar to a Sissa in strength ... From a programming perspective, Knight-riders are fairly tricky, and you incur a significant performace penalty when you generate moves for them. Multi-path pieces incur a *huge* penalty in cost of computation, even well beyond that of Knight-riders.
