I feel just a little bit more strongly now about this: The 'z' on the Tuskers is misleading, since the actual movement of the Tuskers more closely resemble the Bent Shamans.

They should be replaced imnsho.

For those of us who like to play Joe Joyce's Shatranjian series of games in addition to Atlantean Coffee House Shatranj.

The icon you are using should be replaced either by its own symbol (since it is slightly more restricted than a Bent Shaman would be) or by the Bent Shaman piece icons.

Bent Shaman

As someone who is playing your Atlantean Coffeehouse Shatranj right now, I request this of you, Graeme: Replacement of that icon with Bent Shaman or something closely resembling it. The icon you are using is meant to represent the Twisted Knight, as you know, which is immensely more powerful, being able also to make the alfil + alfil or ferz + ferz leaps and not just either or a combination of the two.
