Spacious Pieces. Pieces that need a bit more open space to move.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

How about a very spacious Rook, which must have the squares up to X steps away empty when it moves X steps? It is considerably weaker than the regular spacious Rook. This could bring a whole new class of pieces, the 'equispacious', the Dabbaba of which would only be able to move if the space two steps, discounting the first step, away were empty.
