'Is The Game of Nemoroth a Chess Variant?' I believe it is, though it stretches the boundaries. For me, the telling point is that there's a kind of checkmate (provided by compulsion). Because the basic condition of victory is stalemate, and because the pieces all have different moves, it would also stretch the boundaries to call it an ultima variant. The complexity of interactions of the pieces feels a bit Ultima-ish, though.
