One of my as yet undocumented rules changes is that the Dragon King and Pope cannot move through check. Fusion Chess and the games based on it (including Thunder Chess) have been flawed by the rule that royal pieces could move through check. Although they haven't posed problems in games played against Zillions, this flawed rule could allow a player with a lone Pope or Dragon King to too easily avoid checkmate. The flaw is a bit mitigated in this game by the fact that the royal piece will demote if it captures, but the change will be made throughout the Fusion Chess family of games.
