|King||Moves as in FIDE chess.|
|Rook||Moves as in FIDE chess.|
|Knight||Moves as in FIDE chess.|
|General||Moves one square diagonally in any direction.|
|Elephant||Moves one square diagonally in any direction, or one square directly forward.|
|Pawn||Moves as in FIDE chess.
When a pawn occupies one of the squares on the opponent's side with a diagonal line, it is able to promote to a general, and is designated by the lower symbol.
This may only occur after the player's original general has been captured.
To promote to general, move as a general.
If the pawn leaves the promotion square, it cannot promote.
I have not yet implemented the following rules:
- A promoting general's first move cannot give check or capture the king.
- A piece may be dropped on a pawn, and the pawn placed on another legal square.
These are simple illustrations rather than strong opponents.
