Sorry for the delay on the creation of the ZRF.  I was called out of town
this week.  So I just got back to working on it.  And I have a question:

Is the Castling move allowed in Medusa Shogi?

I know that it is not common to Shogi variants, but I would advocate
keeping this maneuver for Medusa Shogi.  This will allow the players to
quickly move their Kings into a fortified position.  It will also
differentiate Medusa Shogi from other Shogi variants.
