Original Problems (page 15)
I’ll publish some of my problems here and I’d be happy to receive yours! Diagrams, comments, new ideas, anything to discuss – are very appreciated!
The site is mostly about fairies, but h# and s# are also welcome! Please send your problems to my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Warm welcome to Peter Harris! It was a nice surprise for me to get a problem from a well-known fairy composer from so far South Africa!
No.39 – hs#3 by Peter Harris – a nice and seldom synthesis between two modern fairy conditions with many typical effects.
No.39.1 – hs#2 by Nikola Predrag, version after Peter Harris – This version was shown in the comments below and author is interested in your comments (and later – in comments of the judge!) (JV)
I’ll put the Definitions right here for now (later will be added to the Terms page):
AntiCirce (Calvet – the standard type): After a capture the capturing piece (Ks included) must immediately be removed to its game array square (necessarily vacant, else the capture is illegal). Captures on the rebirth square are allowed. Game array squares are determined as in Circe.
Circe: Captured units (not Ks) reappear on their game-array squares, of the same colour in the case of pieces, on the file of capture in the case of pawns, and on the promotion square of the file of capture in the case of fairy pieces. If the rebirth square is occupied the capture is normal.
AntiCirce (Cheylan): As antiCirce Calvet except that captures on the rebirth square are not allowed.
Isardam: The moves causing a Madrasi – like paralysis are illegal. This holds right up to the capture of the mated King. This is standard form of Isardam.
Madrasi: Units other than Ks are paralysed when and for as long as they attack each other. Paralysed units cannot move, capture or give check, their only power being that of causing paralysis.

Reciprocity and interdependence help to unite several components into single extended mechanism with intensified Isardam-effects, compacted into hs#2. (Author)
