In Metamorph Chess, simple pieces promote to compound pieces by making a non-capturing move when attacked, and compound pieces demote to simple pieces whenever they capture. The simple pieces include the Rook, Bishop, and Knight, and the compound pieces include the Queen (R+B), Marshall (R+N), and Paladin (B+N). The board was made from computer generated textures. This ZRF makes use of multiple piece sets, including the Motif set shown below, the Abstract set used with Fusion Chess, and the default Zillions set.
