Dipole Chess is not a single attempt to save chess.  It is, however, if continued play holds up, a case for mutators to be introduced into the chess variant world, as a way to change things up.  Dipole could be a mutator, just as forwards is, as would extinction or other things.  It would provide a way for variants to get integrated into a common base game that people could play, and a proving ground for new rules, pieces and so on.

Consider what is written in the IAGO Chess System rules here as a framework for doing this.  And yes, IAGO Chess System does need to be worked on.
