'I would rate this game as Excellent if you allowed a one-time Ferz move for them' - why only one-time? How about allowing courier move as ferz and knight as wazir any time? Of course, it will be different game, but it's also interesting! 'I think, in random variant it's better, if courier stats on different quarters, but not necessary on different colors' - if all pieces starts on one rank, couriers will always be on different colors if starts on different quarters.
