@Fergus,

I have remade the code to work as expected for the king to not be able to use the special moves out of check:

/play/pbm/play.php?game%3DApothecary+Chess+1%26settings%3DApothecary1working

The relevant piece of code for white  is:

if flag f2:
if == moved K:
  if sub checked $origin:;
    if not or checkleap $origin $dest 1 0 checkleap $origin $dest 1 1:
    die A King may not use the special moves out of check.;
  endif;
endif;
endif;
endif;

There is still the problem that the special moves are displayed as legal when a king is in check. Is that solvable?
