No.311 by Kenneth H. M. Solja – Tritons‘ trio plays the main role in the Meredith problem! (JV)
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.
