Guys:

Besides some suggestions from Daniil and a comment form Mr. Gilman I had no response about this topic/project. So, it’s like The Little Red Hen story; if you are thinking: “I can do it better “, remember that you didn’t and I did. If you have any suggestions, I’m open to then, but, first, read the rules.

Until now I’ve been gathering few ideas, but I didn’t yet made the calculations of the number of the pieces, just the base moves and the templates (take a look at http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MSbasepiecesandt to understand the concept).

At this point I need help with the pieces names (yes, I know kings, etc, but some others…).

O	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
D	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
C	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
O fD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
D fO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fC	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mO cD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mD cO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mfO cfD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mfD cfO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk

To help you, help me, let me tell you what means the letters: O- orthogonal, D- diagonal, C- compound (O+D), f- forward, m- move, c- capture, n= any number, S(n)- slides the number, L(n)- leaps the number, (n)+- must at least slide the number, L1- cannon capture movement, Sl- slip movement, Sk- skip movement.

For the knight family, I have, now, the following:

O1 D1, D1 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O2 D1, D1 O2	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O3 D1, D1 O3	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O1 D2, D2 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O1 D3, D3 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O2 D2, D2 O2	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM

L- leaps, Lf- leaps forward (Shogilike), Slides (Moo), R- rider, GM- Grand Master.

A note about the Grand Master, see the description on the Bizarro Chess.

The 4:2 Leaper, although Mr. Gilman named it Charolais, I name it the Templar, because of the Knights Templar seal (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/43/Templarsign.jpg)

The irony is that the Portuguese piece name is horse (cavalo), but as I use a lot of English I use the knight/religious orders ranks.

Any suggestions?

Hugs!
