The B4nD

The B4nD is a FIDE Bishop whose move is limited to a maximum distance of 4 squares (from f1 to b5, for example), PLUS a Dabaaba that cannot jump.

For example, from f1 it can use its vescoval powers to go to e2, and then if e2 is empty to continue in the same move to d3, c4, and b5 (but not to a6 because that would be too far); or it can see to g2 and h3. In addition, it can use its non-jumping Dabaaba power to move from f1 to d1 (but only if e1 is an empty square), or similarly to d3 or h1. b3.

The value of this piece is supposed to be the same as a Bishop.
