Jump or Walk or Hop or Run or Step

The Knight, Alfil, and Dabaaba are true jumpers because they jump to a place that is more than one square distant from their origin; the King takes a single step, while the Queen is a "runner"; the Knight from xiangqi is a "lame jumper" because it cannot jump over obstacles; and the Knightrider is a runner-jumper -- it runs in the same directions as the Knight.

There is something special about each of these categories. I'll devote a chapter to this later.
