When I had a look at this page it was to make exactly the point of the Mushroom's similarity to the Fibnif. In particular it always moves an odd number of ranks and therefore cannot lose the move, and it also combines the Nightranker (aka Heavenly Horse), which is bound to one in four squares but of mixed colour, with a conventionally colourbound piece to form an unbound piece.
