This looks pretty interesting, but there are a couple of points: <ol><p><li> May a Centurion making its initial double-move capture a Caesar? <p><li> Is there castling? <p><li> Having played Knightmate (which replaces the King with a royal Knight and the Knights with non-royal Kings), I must disagree with the statement -- 'because the third (remaining) Caesar loses most of his powers upon the capture of the second Caesar, facilitating a quick end' -- as it is usually <em>easier</em> in my experiance to mate a royal Knight than a King (a Queen can mate a royal Knight unaided). </ol>
