@Prussia,

1) We (an editor) will need to change the name; let us know when you're settled on one.  (Also, to me, Undercover seems like the player should know their own pieces' identities.  "Reveal" or something, but that suffers the same problem and hints at existing Revelation.  Hmm.)

2) You should be able to upload images from your computer using the "upload files" link just after the bottom of the game description -- the part that begins with the 'm' icon and "This 'user submitted' page ...".  The editing links for you (including the image upload) will only display when you are logged in.  If you want to use the diagram designer, there should be some suitable modified-pawn images that would work, or maybe using the dotted modifier recently described there.  (A black dot over pieces that are technically unknown to the players, but which you want to show the reader?)

I also wanted to mention that this reminds me a little of V.R. Parton's Identific Chess (here currently only as a Friedlander applet; I'll have to write an article later), which led me also to David Howe's Potential Chess.
