There's one aspect of KRII that I've missed.

Is there any actual functional difference between, say, a rook and a royally reincarnated rook? If not then what difference does it make which piece the king reincarnates to? Can you not merely simplify what happens in the game down to:

1. Orthochess, minus check, minus checkmate, and when you lose a piece your turn gets skipped.

2. Game ends when one player's pieces have all been captured.
