I'm playing my first GC game of this variant. The rules enforcing preset did not announce 'check' when a non-capturing piece/pawn could have been giving one, so I now assume that it's assumed by the rules that non-capturing pawns/pieces do not in fact have the power to give check, checkmate, or contribute to any possible stalemate.
