'ABCLargeCV' -- Beau Monde has 100 squares, a decimal variant. Queen, Amazon; 'Marquis' and 'Baroness' are Falcon and Hunter from Falcon-Hunter. 'Beauty' is a cross between Renaissance Chess' Duke and Cavalier. 'Princess' is (Cannon + Canon). 'Duchess' moves queenlike but diagonally must reflect once off either an edge or a piece. 'Countess' is a rifle piece that after a radial move fires at 45 degrees. Having half a dozen extreme-heterodox features, some original, could better be distributed over several different games. Having both FIDE and Berolina Pawns, on top of everything else, even more convoluted.
