I like your page a lot, but am confused on the movement of pieces between levels. You say 'where going up or down a level always means going from a movable level to a fixed level or vice versa,' but in your diagram it looks like one of the options is to move the white queen up to the next fixed level, going from fixed level to fixed level. In the diagram, it also looks like a possible move would be to move the white queen to the space two towards the nuetral level while staying on the same level, going straight over the pawn or going onto the movable level, but then going to a space directly under the movable level. Could you please further explain these rules?
