i love this game. it has so many strong pieces. I think i have actually won a game. the cavalier reduces the gryphon's blockability. the duke does moreso with the aanca. The foxes defend the king well. If the pawn underpromotes to fox and it reaches the end rank does it become a guard. the general threatens mat however which makes it very strong. if you combined all of the pieces in rennchess it would control three ranks and files, move as a camel, squirrel,l duke, bishop, cavalier, and rook and would be worth three queens now imagine if there were korean lions (moves as a queen but must jump a piece in order to move) and nightriders in the game the yitong (a unifucation of all pieces in the game into one) would now be worth as musch as FOUR queens. i think thi monter of a piece a unifucation of all rennchess pieces would be able check mate a king by itself! without the edge of the board and it wouldn't be very hard to either. and with the lion move (korean lion) interpositon would be useless. Also, this piece i think could checkmate a QUEEN by itself i think. and if it was in the center of an empty 7 by 7 board it would reach every square
