No.314 by Luis Miguel Martín – A nice “marine pins” after promotions into TR and NE!  (JV)


Triton (TR): A piece that plays as a Rook but captures only as a Locust

Nereid (NE): A piece that plays as a Bishop but captures only as a Locust

Locust (L): moves on Q-lines but only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.
