I meant that the Bishops are colourbound as a pair. It doesn't matter if play can be assymmetrical. Assymmetry evens out. I don't care if some new pieces already in Turkish Great Chess, and I didn't say that the Morph was powerful. You also have an advantage because you're an excellent player.

The Bishops are colourbound, the board is too big, discriminating the weak pieces, White has an advantage with symmetrical Sword play, and the new pieces are ridiculously powerful, especially the Medusa.

I like these 2 new pieces a lot. 
The only point I regret is the use of new names for old pieces, sword for
pawn, advisor for bishop, and for faeric pieces as well. Those have
already too many names, why creating new ones that just add confusion ?
