I too was puzzled by the movement of the Pagan.  Perhaps some clarification about the bridge is required in the rules.

I also wonder about the flipped nature of the board and if it benefits black or white.  The Pagan is centrally located so one might think this is an advantage for it to be black as the King is hidden better and the White King is near a leap point for it.  The Pagan can sit on the bridge and block the White King...

A very interesting variant.  I look forward to playing at some point.
