Thanks, Greg. There is a reason I consider this to be my best Chess variant, and you hit on it quite well. Huge thanks go to Roberto Lavieri, who came up with the initial idea for Mortal Shogi and who also came up with the underpromotion rule, which I think has made this game a lot more interesting. Thanks also go to Karl Scherer, whose Hydra Chess inspired Mortal Chessgi.
