Locust(L): Moves along Queen lines only by capturing an enemy unit, arriving on the square immediately beyond that unit, which must be vacant.

Bishop-Lion(BL): Moves along Bishop lines over another unit of either color to any square beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Swapping Kings: If a move exposes the opponent’s King to a check under normal rules, then the two Kings are switched, and check or checkmate is newly evaluated, and of course a move is illegal if after such a switch one’s own King is in check.
