I have a few questions:

1 - 'When a Soldier captures a friend piece, it can promote by
COMPENSATION to a SPECIAL PIECE.'  Does that include another soldier? 
That is, can my soldiers capture each other to create three more special

2 - When a Special Piece is adjacent to a Reducer, can it still make a
stationary move to transmute into a different Special Piece?

3 - A 'rules lawyer' would notice that there is no prohibition against
capturing your own King with a Soldier.  You'd get another Special Piece,
and you can't lose by checkmate!  Is this what you meant?
