Hi Freederick, it's good to see a game which, despite its extremely limited innovations, is a real strategy-changer.  Bishops are no longer colour-bound and can support each other.  Rooks are not so easily trapped in corners.  Incidentally, both of these pieces exist (under different names) in Shogi.  

One point to note : Unbinding the bishop makes it more or less the rook's equal, as the only real deficit of the FIDE bishop is its ability to reach only half of the board.
