I think this is a really interesting game and I would be keen to give it a try. If anyone would like to play it with me, leave me a message and we can play by email.

Thank you Mickey for this excellent varient! I've been looking for a method by which to combine Steve Jackson's Knightmare Chess and Proteus. Pagan Chess works wonderfully. I've kept the movement of the pieces as standard, but with the King/Pyramid retaining its SJ abilities, the Pawn in the initial rank is replaced with a Knight at start, and I use the Proteus victory conditions.

When I saw the setup, I simply rubbed my hands together. 'This is going
to be good.'

  One comment though: you haven't specified HOW the pagan moves across
the bridge. I assume that since its move is to short to span the bridge
that it is extended from end to end:

P  .
.*-.
.-*.
.--*
   .

With * showing the pagan's path.
