Joe,

I find this Shatranj variant very interesting.

I created  preset which enforces the rules:

/play/pbm/play.php?game%3DModern+Shatranj%26settings%3Dcarrillo

The only difference in my implementation of the rules is that Pawns can only promote to Generals (to keep more of a 'shatranj-ness' flavour).
