I have looked it up, I think 'cheng' would probably be a better choice (see <a href='http://zhongwen.com/d/171/d176.htm'>http://zhongwen.com/d/171/d176.htm</a> and the corresponging Unicode page, by clicking on the '+' sign next to the question mark), also <a href='http://zhongwen.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?yinghan=castle&framed=yes'>http://zhongwen.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?yinghan=castle&framed=yes</a>. You could make only 'cheng', or one of each, or just make a completely different character if you think it would improve it.<br><br>But I don't really care what you make, but I should have at least one icon for the castle in Para-Xiang-qi which can be used to play this game. Whichever icon is used, I would like it to be added to the Game Courier so I could make a Game Courier preset to play Para-Xiang-qi. Then whoever plays first together can see how this game actually works! (Of course I could use ASCII letters in the mean time, but if this is Xiang-qi, I would like to be able to use Chinese characters to play this game).
