I did a complete study of all select opening setups with minimized asymmetry upon the 8H X 10W board using the 'Chancellor Chess piece set'.  I am referring to games designed with an architecture analogous to how Janus Chess and Archbishop Chess are based upon 2 archbishops but with 2 chancellors instead.

I discovered this to be the single, most stable opening setup possible:

R-B-N-C-Q-K-C-N-B-R  mirror I
R-B-N-C-K-Q-C-N-B-R  mirror II

I will name it 'Chancellor Chess 8H x 10W' and post it to the ZOG web site soon.
