Because I needed something to focus it on. Otherwise it would just be a range of random variants, and harder for readers to relate to.

Why it must necessary be derived from something?

Well Notchess 80 is derived from Yang Qi, which has neither. I could probably devise a Notchess based on Wildeurasian Qi, which has both those pieces as well as the Gnu. That one would have an odd number of files.

These seem like a very good idea, aesthetically pleasing, and thumbs up for acknowledging Extinction Chess antecedent.
