I was about to make three possible suggestions to solve the unprotected Pawns problem, all with 3 Pawns between the outer 2 Pawns together with: nothing between the Knights (same material as current variant); 3 Pawns between the Knights AS WELL (same material as FIDE Chess); Knight-Camel-Camel-Gnu-Knight (reduced-Pawns version of Wildebeest Chess). Then I realised that all Pawns ARE protected: the inner ones by the Queen and Bishops, and the outer ones by the inner ones (and should those move, by the Bishop behind them). Still, the other variants might be interesting as well.

I must say that I have fell in love with this game. You say in your
description that you don't like the setup of the pieces but I enjoy them
very much.
The consept of the one ring is wonderful and really adds to the game. I am
just about to download the bigger version as well and find out why you like
that even more then the smaller one.

Congrats on a wonderful variant.
