Thank you, Jörg. I did not know the Jelliss' writing "Theory of Journeys". I will study it carefully.

We can get a first approach to the relative strength of these nightriders by placing them on the central square (g7) of a 13x13 board and counting the number of squares affected/checked from there.

Doing it, we would find these results:

NN11 Diagonal Wide Crooked Nightrider 56
NN02 Straight Wide Crooked Nightrider 36
NN31 Quintessence 36
NN00 Rose 32
NN33 Diagonal Narrow Crooked Nightrider 24
NN21 Standard Nightrider 24
NN04 Straight Narrow Crooked Nightrider 20

Hence, the following equivalences should be near to be true:

NN11 = NN00 + NN33 = NN00 + NN21 = NN31 + NN04 = NN02 + NN04

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
