Ah yes, I see, it is a halfling Rose indeed!

Nice to see the Spotted Gryphon in this diagram, it is another difficult piece to describe!

Indeed. Before I had introduced the paretheses notation, it would have been necessary to mention every distance separately, with a large number of intermediate steps.

I understood from the article that in this variant the Rose only has 4 steps.

Shouldn't the Rose have the move qN8 (including a zero move if the full circle is available) instead of just qN4? In the starting position after

  1. k4-k5 ... it should be possible to play 2. Of2-f6.

Nice to see the Spotted Gryphon in this diagram, it is another difficult piece to describe!

Innovative choice of pieces. Theoretically they fit well with each other. But game play turnsout to be rather awkward.
