Hello Fergus, I indeed think Extended Chess distinguish it self from other variants, being the changes implemented only a way of many to develop a new variant. About the logical culmination, this is something related with the above stated, for in my opinion there is not only one logical culmination to a probable evolution or change made to the game of chess, and I found the logic more in following a determined pattern, that would be the past characteristics of the pieces, and the way they were changed to end with a version that was based in those original pieces. I must tell you that I had take care in not overloading that 'evolution', for sometime I was asking myself what would happen if the teletransportation capacity of other pieces appearing and disappearing at holes in the 64 squares board would be implemented. But I think that after the tests made, the resulting game could be yet distinctly identified as a direct variant of traditional chess.
