The 'nit-pick' is fine, as 'King's Ransom' is somewhat logical, at least for the original game... However, in King's Reincarnation II the returning monarch moves in the manner of the piece it has returned as. 'Reincarnation' fits in this case. 'Ransom' would not account for the new King's behavior. Also, when I made the game, the idea of ransom never ocurred to me. It was a King coming back, being reincarnated from the moment the game was conceived.
