No.297 by Julia Vysotska – This is my first try of using Marine pieces. The last paragraph of the article about Marine pieces by IGM P.A.PetkovDo You know the Marine pieces? (Part I – Siren, Triton, Nereid)”  turned my thoughts to the Neutral Marine pieces. Plus, I like sacrifices and Zilahi! (JV)


Definitions:

Siren (SI): A piece that plays as a Queen but captures only as a Locust

Triton (TR): A piece that plays as a Rook  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.

Very nice problem ! The marine pieces of course resemble the Locust (as they should) with the added facility of free movement. The only minus point of this interesting idea is the twinning.
