On 8x8 [or even 10x10], the Twisted kNight is about the value of a queen, and probably a bit more, I suspect. The TN has pretty much the same relation to the queen that the bent shaman has to the rook, as far as I can see. In the middle of an 8x8, the TN attacks 24 squares, most in 2 ways. It's a tough piece. Actually, the reason I designed Lemurian was to reduce the power of the Barroom pieces.
