Pawns cannot step sideways on friendly side of river, and can do it on opponent's side, wherever river is situated. Palace and river cannot be rotated 90 degrees, but it would be interesting variant to.
My idea about playing it with game courier: use pieces 'palace center' and palace center with pieces of different types and colors (expect opponent's general and advisors) in it. I have no idea about river.
