External Link: Perier Chess

If players have elected to include external pieces (Perier cannons), they may either move a piece or pawn, or drop the extra piece from the reserve. Pieces may only be dropped on the first rank, on an empty square behind a friendly pawn. The friendly pawn is immediately relocated two squares ahead, to a position which must be empty.

The Perier can step in any direction like a king. It can capture only by leaping over any piece. If the nearest piece after the leap is an enemy piece, then it can be captured. Its value is 4, i.e., pawn + light piece.
