Logs for Raptor Chess

The Bird or Flying Bomber

The Bird, when not capturing, moves exactly like the Rook. When capturing it flies over its prey orthogonally and lands on the square immediately after it.
It can also move and capture like a Dabbabah, which makes an orthogonal two square leap.
The Bird can capture two pieces by combining both capture mechanisms.

The Raptor

The Raptor, when not capturing, moves exactly like the bishop. When capturing it flies over its prey along the diagonal and lands on the square immediately after it.
It can also move and capture like an Alfil, which jumps two squares diagonally.
Similar to the Bird, the Rapture can capture two pieces as well.
