Nice concept and homage to the original.

The "wrong reaper" is clever and not something I had thought of.

One thing maybe missing from the set is to change to the king from anti king chess that can't be captured, but requires constant enemy threat.

As mentioned the widow is essentially an immobiliser and the "independent" is overpowered, though the presence of the anti king would makes it a more acceptable piece.

Also in the spirit of the game would be to have a "mobiliser" type that for example allows double move to adjacent friendlies.

This looks like an Ultima variant to me. I love Ultima and think there is room for a lot more variety in the development of pieces, and I'm glad to see this variant. It would be great if someone with Zillions expertise could find the time to program it.
