Replying to Charles Gilman: Legler probably allows 'castling' using the Kings and the pieces in the corners of the board. So leaving the Rooks on the h-file means that they will still be available for castling after the Chancellors have left their home squares. When I independently came up with Paulowich's Chancellor Chess in 1997, I started off with that kind of castling rule. My variant just adds Chancellors (on the a-file), but also switches the Queens with the remaining Rooks. The revised version replaces castling with a King's Leap rule. Currently playtesting my Zillions file (kingleap.zrf) for this King's Leap Chess. <p>Michael Howe cites Schmittberger as giving the Marshal and the Queen equal value in 'Grand Chess.' Wow! I consider the Chancellor (Marshal) to be at least a pawn lower than the Queen in Unicorn Chess and Unicorn Great Chess. Note: the Piececlopedia entry for Camel has recently turned into a mini-debate on piece values.
