Escribed about old-fashioned 8x8 are the Templar Chess squares to fit the one unorthodox piece, the Querquisite. We know the files of R, N, B, Q, and K, and whatever file the Querquisite is in, is how they move. Not left to domain of problemists now, like for example most hoppers remain (see Jeliss), Querquisite gets first CV use in artwork here by Sibahi. Querquisite in h-file is Rook, g-file Knight, and so on. Invented in 1947 by Creed, later cousins are Abbott's Chameleon(1962) and Havel's Jester(1999), as Abdul-Rahman's follow-up paragraphs explain under variations. I pictured Sibahi finding old magazines in libraries, as I had to do in 1992 with British Chess Magazines for old T.R. Dawson material. However, it turns out there is link he shows here on Internet to FCR June 1947 through Variant Chess article 1998 by Emmerson.
