I don't think this is very clear. 'Travels' is what everywhere else would be called 'moves' or 'moves without capture'. And 'moves' sems to mean what normally is called 'moves or captures'. Does 'travelling' also require a neighbor?

There's AI versus AI in ChessCraft since 1.11 but since ChessCraft AI considers Sleepy BalaQueen weaker than Bishop, I didn't use ChessCraft AI to test for the balance. Each piece from this army is estimated to be slightly weaker than their FIDEs counterpart except for the Knight. If the army is too weak, you can instead play the previous version of this army which you could play in ChessCraft version 1.14. The only difference is that they could deliver checks without a neighbor.

Here too I think it's important to at least say something about expected balance. Can ChessCraft provide automated playtesting?

It means non-capture move.

You need to define what it means for a piece to travel. I assume it means "move without having a neighbor", but this should be specified.
