Notes

Emperor Raumschach is a variant of Dr. Fredinand Maack's Raumschach, developed by L. Lynn Smith.

The ability to leap was added to the Unicorn, thus creating the HERALD, increasing the piece's power and freeing it from its triagonal field pattern.

Replacing the King with the powerful leaping EMPEROR reduces the potential for draws and the amount of material necessary to form a mating positon. The PAWN is allowed its most powerful interpretation, adding the triagonal capture move, assuring the piece with the ability of strong development during the opening game and increasing its chance of promotion, thus such restricted to the recovery of captured pieces.

The win by capture of the EMPEROR is specific to this implementation, checkmate would normally be sufficient.
