The Comment You're Replying To

Well, thanks! Unfortunately I don't keep separate web pages on piece values. What I learn about them I usually publish here. Not all comments here can be appropriately associated with an article, however. (The Piececlopedia is far from complete.) And unassociated commands are almost impossible to find back here, if they don't disappear at all.

I remeber having published something here about divergent pieces (mKcN, mNcK, mQcN, mNcQ), and on another occasion there was a topic in which both Mats Winther and I published about the value of bifurcator pieces.

Recently I did an investigation on sliders that skip the first square, either completely, or allowing captures or rifle captures to them. This in connection with the weird 'Heavenly Tetrarchs' piece of Tenjiku Shogi. But the results never got any further than the 'Talk page' of the Wikipedia article about Tenjiku.

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. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

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.
