Since I have now made the headings more distinct from each other, I quickly noticed that you were using H2 headings where you should be using H3 headings, and I moved all headings down one level. I also added a Pychess tag.

I have now published this game. I also clarified some language and added some links.

As with Shogun Chess, all the graphics on this page must be replaced with locally hosted graphics. I would like to leave this to you, so that you will learn how to upload graphics. You will find the option for this in the Edit menu at the top and also down at the bottom of the page.

This is mostly looking good. However, some or all of the brief piece descriptions immediately underneath the Pieces heading are ambiguous. These should be rewritten so that there is no question what each means. For example, "Lancer = ♜ BUT moves as a ♞." This could mean that (1) the Lance moves and captures as a Rook and also moves without capturing as a Knight, (2) the Lance takes the place of the Rook but moves as a Knight, not as a Rook, or (3) the Lance captures as a Rook but moves without capturing as a Knight. Looking at your longer description, it is the third. It's also worth mentioning that this kind of piece is known as a divergent piece, which is defined as a piece that moves and captures differently. Common examples of divergent pieces are the Pawn from Chess and the Cannon from Chinese Chess (known as Xiangqi). Please remove the ambiguity from this section and let us know when you have done that.
