Only one Comment so far; there appear conveniently piece values. This Comment is only from momentary perusal. War Elephant is the same as Free Padwar from Jetan, states Joyce. For those, one has to go to Larry Smith's legendary article covering all possible interpretations. We recognize now Bent Shaman and Bent Hero as two-path, their becoming more instinctive, like several interpretations of Jetan pieces. Now actually one piece may have differing number of paths to different squares. Sissa, being Commented simultaneously, is especially interesting in being precisely two-path and four-path at the same time. It depends on its particular arrival squares. Hero and Shaman (both 'Bent' by our appellative preference) are either one- or two-path contingent upon squares in question. Maybe so many mid-range movers struggle on so large board.
