Atlantean Barroom Shatranj Rules.

Keep digging, you may have made yet another Atlantean archaeological discovery. The following is copied directly from Abdul-Rahman Sibahi's Queen of the Night: 'Pawns : these are replaced by an improved version of Charles Gilman's Patient pawns. When in their second rank, a pawn may move one step forward, two steps forward, capture a piece diagonally forward, or move one step forward then captures a piece diagonally adjacent. It also may may make a non capturing move one step to the side. In short: these pawns effectively compound Lias's Pawns with Patient Pawns. In the Longer Board (10 ranks) the pawns on the third rank also have the option to move, without capturing, one square orthogonally backwards. From the second rank, they have the option for a triple move, and a double move followed by a capture. A pawn can go back and forth between the second and third ranks as the player pleases, but once it's on the fourth or beyond it can't retreat. (Four pawns are placed on the second rank in front of Knights and Bishops, to maintain the 50% density.) Pawns may be captured en-passant in case of double or triple step, but if the final step was a capture this doesn't return the captured piece.'
