Thank you for your questions!  Let me clarify:

  1. Good catch! In my last-minute scramble to enter, my first letter of
submission got canceled, and missed this in #2 entry!

  Double promotions ARE allowed and encouraged! The catch is, one
promotion per citadel per piece-you must enter the other citadel to get
your piece promoted twice!  :)

  A. Correct interpretation.
  B. Also correct.
  C. Correct--and a correction! (another leftout on the recopy :{ ) :

   Any pawn promoting on b7 or k7 (b2 or k2) has the option of promoting
to Guard--However, no further promotion is allowed for the Guard/Pawn.

  This rule is in place to prevent Stalemates by hiding the king in the
citadel-now the promotion is Checkmate.

  Email address?  [email protected] ALL comments! Nicer comments
are probably more appreciated for some strange reason...

  just had to give it a rating-sorry... :)
