Thanks for the comment, the Alfaerie images are sometimes a matter of hit
and miss. I think it's more hit than miss this time, but it's open to
interpretation. Besides, one can always download the (excellent) zrf and
change the graphics :)

I didn't think about the similarity, but you can always refer to them as
Gold General, Unicorn and King.

Whoops about the ZRF! Fixed now.

Thanks Peter, the page looks great! However, the zrf was made by Uri Bruck, not by me.

I very much like this variant and look forward to playing it soon.  I do
have two concerns:

1) The graphic used for the Kin might lead someone to assume it moved in
different manner than the rules allow.

2) King, Kin and Kirin look like easily confused names.

Both of these issues are minor quibbles that in no way undermine my
overall good initial impression of the game.

This is a competing entry in the 44 Squares contest.
