Is enthronement supposed to work with your Regents or opponent's Regents or both? According to the note about castling, it seem to be for your own. But a variant might be to use with both (note that capturing opponent's regent on your first turn will put you in check).

About using randomness, an idea I have is for each player to hold a few cards that cannot be seen by their opponent. If you make a long move, then your opponent selects and plays one of the cards in their hand to determine which destination, and then discards that card and pick up another card from the draw pile. (If no valid card is held, they can reveal all their cards, discard them, pick up a new hand of cards, and select one as in the standard game, or if you prefer, roll a dice.) And then maybe combine this with the backgammon doubling cube rule.
