Nice-looking game, Charles. I do have to point out though, that the sorcerer snake has the same footprint, although not the same movement pattern, as the Nahbi, used in Nahbi Chess and designed by Uri Bruck for the 1999 Large Variant Contest. The Nahbi is a slider. It slides 2 squares diagonally in a straight line, then must step 1 square orthogonally, in any direction. It is clearly weaker than the snake, but by how much?
