The board looks a bit cramped, so I'll withhold my rating. Mr. Duke is incorrect in that Leaping Rook : Rook = Bison : Falcon. Rook is single-path, whereas Falcon is multi-path. If Leaping Rook is made multi-path, it is still a Leaping Rook because it can take any step on its first. Also, please use (1,3) as Camel, as the practice of including the origin square in a piece's movement description is outdated. As a mathematician, you would know origin as (0,0), que no?
