|PAO(PA):||(0,1) Chinese. Chinese piece operating along Rook lines: moves as Rook, but captures only by hopping over a hurdle to any square beyond.|
|Paralyzing piece:||Moves as normal but cannot capture; instead it paralyses any enemy unit it attacks, so that this unit is unable to move, capture or give check, until the attack from the paralyzing piece ceases. At the mate the side being mated must have at least one move available before the notional capture of the King.|
