I think, harpys are too weak... Looks like, they exists only to poison
king, other pieces are mostly poisoned only to remove check (if there is no
other way to remove it or these ways are disvantegeous)... To make game
more interesting, i think, it shouls have more harpys (maybe, 4) or allow
to poison opponent's pieces several times (maybe 3 times is OK).
It's funny: in english language male pawn can become female queen, while
in russian word 'pawn' is female ('peshka'), and instead queen, there
is male ferz...
