This variant has an interesting selection of pieces. Back in September I added a comment to 'The Game of Jetan or Martian Chess' comparing the Jester to the Free Padwar. The Chancellor is a very powerful short-range piece. But I personally would prefer the idea of a noncapturing 'king’s flight' move. No such restriction is stated in these rules. I have also tested the Zillions game file rules by adding White Chancellors to the squares e6 and i6, then playing:

1. Chancellor i6xh8 check, King g8xh8

2. Chancellor e6xf8 check, King h8xf8
