The Charging Rook moves forwards and sidewards as a rook, but backwards as a King. 
The Drunken Night moves forwards as a Knight, sidewards as a Wazir, and backwards as a Ferz. 
The Colonel moves as a Charging Rook or as a forward Knight.

Two questions. So, 'backwards as a king' means the 3 directions backwards, and 'forwards as a knight' means directly forwards, therefore 2 directions forward, is this right?
Oh, and one more question, these are new pieces?
