I like the game, and I do not consider the family of Capablanca-like games to be over-crowded, as there are so many good arrangements of these pieces, each with its own flavor. The only thing I don't like is the use of the name 'Paladin' for the Archbishop. Paladin begins with 'P', same as the Pawn, requiring a different notaiton. Additionally, I understand that everyone is not going to agree on the same piece naming, but I don't see why the four recently invented variants, Grotesque Chess, Ladorean Chess, Univers Chess, and Schoolbook all must have different namings from one another, and different from the common Capablanca names.
