That's a good question. A Crooked Panda doesn't have a Straight EMD, if course. In fact the 90° one alternates between two Anchorite paths. It also inherits the Straight (square-board) Panda's colourswitching. It's certainly an interesting piece. The hex board's 120° and 60° ones (swapping between pairs of Farrier and Simurgh paths respectiovely) are probably less so but would need considering along with it. I'll have to think about this lot, and their Bear-based duals of course. Of course if you've any ideas of your own I'd be delighted to hear them.
