I added links to the two games you mention. So that the reader doesn't have to consult another page to know the full rules of your game, it would help to include the rules from Capablanca Random Chess for randomizing the setup.

I also should mention that I don't really like the images I currently have assigned to the archbishop and chancellor with the Diagram Designer, but I could not figure out how to submit my own piece design there.

I see you're using a Cannon image for the Chancellor and a Marshall (or Chancellor) image for the Missle. You may submit images for a set to an editor. The new images should be designed to fit in with the style of the set. I would recommend uploading your new images and letting an editor know in the comments. Many other sets portray the Chancellor and Archbishop as a combination of two pieces, which makes them instantly recognizable.

I see you were styling your text. In particular, you put BIG tags around your text, and you used CSS to put a border around each piece description. In particular, I am getting a scrollbar at the bottom of the page, which I think is caused by your CSS. I will refer you to Preferred HTML form of contributions.
