A Futuristic Chessery Game - relaxed win rules.

Royal Fury is played on a 10x10 field. It's forces consist of:

Advancer[A] steps one forward orthogonal, forward right diagonal or forward left diagonal. Promotes to Jumper on the opposing half of the field.
Capricorn[C] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells. It captures all opposing pieces which are then located adjacent.
Dragon[D] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells. Upon encountering an opposing piece, it may capture by leaping over it to a vacant cell beyond. If it performs a capture, it may continue to make captures in any direction unless its position results in becoming frozen by the gaze of an opposing Gorgon or Fury.
Fury[F] combines the powers of the Capricorn, Dragon, Gorgon, Harpy, Jumper and Ximaera.
Gorgon[G] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells, and may capture an opposing piece on its last. It also has the power to freeze any opposing piece which falls under its gaze which being a direct diagonal or orthogonal without obstuction, including an opponent Gorgon.
Harpy[H] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells. It captures by leaping any one piece, friend or foe, to take the next opposing piece regardless of the number of cells away.
Jumper[J] leaps one orthogonal then one diagonal to vacant or enemy-occupied cells.
Mimotaur[M] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells. Captures opposing pieces with their own specific powers. Is able to freeze the Gorgon and Fury, and swap positions with the Ximaera.
Ximaera[X] slides diagonal or orthogonal through vacant cells. Upon encountering an opposing piece, it is able to take its position and send the opposing piece to its starting position.

The game is won by capturing both opposing Furies. Under the strict rules, if both players lose a Fury the game is drawn. In this implementation, the game is lost if stalemated or unable to perform a move during any turn.
