yes the elephant can move as king and alfil - because the rook hook mover
is so powerful, the normal knight and elephant have had their powers
greatly increased. Looking at this game now, i think it is probably more
interesting played that way (with normal knight and alfil or alfil-fers)

Why does the preset have a different icon for the Elephant? It this piece also augmented in some way?
