This is great.

One of three new variants I found here that I really like.

Not really much fond of normal chess, but this is different.

With all due respect to John Gollon, I don't see why pawns should be allowed to take a first move that would cross the centerline, and I also don't see any reason for castling when the king can easily drop back into the bottom rank and let his guard protect him.

See the Piececlopedia entries for 'Man' and 'Squirrel' for more info on the Guard and the Castle in this game. The Kirin (Kylin) from Chu Shogi and Dai Shogi is identical to the Fortress. Pacific Chess (52 pieces) can be compared to Scirocco (50 pieces) and Opulent Chess and TenCubed Chess (both with 48 pieces).
