Hi all! :)  I have been very ill for some years now, and off the net for awhile, but for a little while, i'm feeling better enough to be on for a bit.
  Thank you all who enjoy my games, and an especially big thank-you to Matthew-right after inventing renn 2, and while playtesting w/ matthew, I was diagnosed as a brittle Diabetic. it has sapped me of much of my vitality, so much so that I had to give up playing the games online.
  I cannot guarantee, but I will try to be here more often, from this point forward, so I can perhaps comment/help if wanted/needed.
  I will try and resume playing one game, and see if the stamina is there to become more active.
  Once again, I am glad people are enjoying my inventions, thank you for playing them! It feels good to know that you've done something in life that was of benefit to others.

Bison/Falcon is irrelevant. Repeatedly explained is that Bison is patented USP5690334. Once CVP kept its artists to higher standard and, not yet mentioned for this particular mediocre CV and all unoriginal Daniel's other works, better succinct writing skills within the text. These pieces are Renaissance Cavalier and Duke. It is the cost paid for anyone's having the right to comment, as the site becomes popular, and for the post-your-own system itself. When Editors had time to review each entry, now understandably impossible, the lowering of quality was avoided. We proceed over the holiday weeks to review, re-organize, and make retrospectives. This is one insignificant CV of only interest for the ''zigzag'' derivations discussed by the other Smith and Knappen. We need to diverge for the current tremendous occurrence of quality proliferation in John Smith's unexpected work, a counter-trend to the one prevailing. If we find the time.

I liked it!

But, looks to me that is a template, as the snake. A template that can be applied to the various atoms and generals.

1 step in the divergent direction followed by 2 in the main direction, or the reverse, it can be applied to the man, the generals (again), and the Z family.

Argh. Neither are the introduced exotic pieces 'crooked' in the sense
used commonly here, nor are they particularly new. They aren't zig-zag

Look at Renniassance Chess (yes, the spelling is intentional) on this
server for the Duke and the Cavallier and look up the 'Crooked Bishop'
in the piecoclopedia.
