(posting with name only as I've lost my password. I haven't been involved in chess variants for a while, though I would still like to do more with them eventually) Thanks, Daniil. I had had one other idea along these lines, which was to combine all the modifications made to Shantranj to get each game. But I found that in that system, it was possible for Black to force a win within a few moves, so it wouldn't be a very good game at all. And playing your game will join my long lists of things to do eventually. one other thing I'd like to say since I don't know where to put it here otherwise; the idea that large board variants are intrinsically unplayable or unfun is plain wrong. I've played and enjoyed one many times, with small pieces on a large board painted by my father, and I have played and enjoyed other boardgames just on ruled-on paper so if necessary I think poster paper or butcher's paper could be used for a board.
