No.629 by Karol Mlynka – Nice fairy promotions of the black Pawns! (JV)

Definitions:

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

Waran (WA): Rook + Nightrider ((1,2) Rider. Operates along straight lines with squares lying a Knight`s move away from each other).

Pressburger King (Super-TransmutingKing): King which definitively takes up the nature of the checking piece (and thus loses his royal status).

Take & Make: Having captured, a unit must immediately, as part of its move, play a non-capturing move in imitation of the captured unit from the capture-square. If no such move is available, the capture is illegal. Promotion by capture occurs only when a pawn arrives on the promotion rank as the result of a take&make move. Checks are as in normal chess: after the notional capture of the checked K, the checking unit does not move away from the King’s square.
