I changed the extra Queen to a King.

This is a straightforward CV by Gilman.  To suit the constricted board, he decides to use Shogi promotees for Bishop and Rook, adding Wazir and Ferz respectively.  Pawns are Centennial-acclaimed Quadra-pawns.  Some restriction on Knight at inside corners.  That's it.  Should be playable enough short games.  

But the piece in right corner needs correction to King.

I don't inderstand the question. The piece that I rejected can move orthogonally only forward. The one that I eventually settled on can move (and, of course, capture) one step along all fouer orthogonals.

But why bishop's additional orthogonal move to change color of square necessary must be forward? Why it can't be in any direction?
