Saw this in r/chessvariants recently and I just wanna ask what do you mean in this part

If a piece moves after capturing, it may not: o move along the same:

Column ( i.e. castle, king, or queen )

Row ( i.e. castle, king, or queen )

or Diagonal ( i.e. bishop, king or queen )

I'm just confused on that rule

Testing Again

I'm thinking of doing this setup so the non royal major piece is like guarding the royal ones but I just realized the b and i pawns are unprotected I was thinking of switching the Man and Unicorn in this setup but I don't know yet

EDIT: I think I'm doing this setup instead even though it looks weird to me

Hello

I think I'm going to change pieces a bit rn

The Unicorn now moves like Bison(Camel+Zebra) instead of Gnu(Camel+Knight)

also, there are now 5 "major" pieces, the 4 being the royals and one that moves like a Squirrel(Knight+Alfil+Dabbaba) whose royal name is Sovereign

basically, you have to choose 4 of them to be the royals and then the remaining one is placed where the Zebra was(yes, the Zebra is replaced by a non royal "major" piece)

lastly, as an optional rule, you may not have the same non royal "major" piece

I'm not going to update the page for now since it's night rn

probably lag or glitch


Zhedric Meneses wrote on 2020-12-13 UTC

To Be Honest, I prefer a setup where the King Queen pair is switched with the Missionaries and the Queen is now the Amazon and vice versa

yeah it may break the Original FIDE setup but it allows the weaker pieces to develop faster without the stronger ones joining in as well which I prefer and for Castling, I would just allow the King castle with the Sailor

but that's just my preference, you do you, the current setup is good enough for me to play on and not ruin the variant for me

While we're on the topic of mythical creatures, I wonder how many of them appeared in Chess Variants

I only know there's Unicorn, Dragon(?), Gryphon/Griffon, Aanca/Anqa, Kirin, and Phoenix

I dunno why but I'll name them Kyrin and Phoenix respectively

Probably because they remind me of the Chu Shogi pieces with the same name fsr

For RNN: Emperor since it's a very strong piece

For RpcRF: Mortar since it's a strong Cannon

For BWDD: Archbishop Cardinal or Pope since it's a strong Bishop

Hello, I know I'm already posting too many comments on this, I just wanna fix the game

While currently playtesting the game on Zillions, I'm thinking of ideas to try weaken the riders so that the game's more "fair" or smth

I'm thinking of making it a part-hopper, limit their range, or replace them entirely but I dunno yet, I just need ideas to weaken them

EDIT: ok, instead of "fixing" the riders, I'm going to try to update the rules

ok, I'm just making a suggesting but you do you


Zhedric Meneses wrote on 2020-11-17 UTC

The many pieces promoting into a queen reminds me of shogi. just a suggestion but maybe it'd be better if Marshall and Cardinal promote into a Nightrider+Rook and Nightrider+Bishop pieces respectively and the knight can either promote into Scepter or Nightrider

I will probably replace one of the new pieces with something like Vao and make the Ox move 1 Space Diagonally personally but hey, my bad opinions. I think adding the new pieces is good anyways since it compliments the Knight and Ox.
