I rearranged the steup and changed Knight into Horse. Wish this variant were playable.

In the rules, there is a 'Mirror Rhino' that should be a 'King'. Also, does the Lion let Stones capture without moving, or do they have to move to capture? The reason I ask is because there is a Lion in Chu Shogi that can capture without moving.

Thanks for remark.

 Lion is borrowed from Chu Shogi. But only the power of Igui (stationary feeding) is retained. So the Stone standing on the same file or
rank with only Lion could not move to any empty square.

Is horse similar to XQ horse, or it can also move as moa? Are pao and vao 'Korean' (must leap either to move or capture) or what?

Horse is like to XQ horse  it can't move as moa.

Korean Pao,from Korean Chess, moves by jumping another piece horizontally or vertically. The jump can be performed over any distance provided that there is exactly one piece anywhere between the original position and the target. In order to capture a piece, there must be exactly one piece (friendly or otherwise) between the Korean Pao and the piece to be captured.
