Re Chas. Gilman's comment, Cagliostro's is fairly interesting mix of
standard compound pieces. When there becomes a predominant mainstream
replacement for 64-sq. Orthodox--versus CVP's Googol (10^100)
and more possibilities [See recent comments under random chesses,
Deployment and Slide Shuffle]--most likely it will have time-honoured, 
paired R, B, and N, as Orthodox, and such as Capablanca's, Grand, Omega, 
Falcon and Gothic, on expanded board. Here in Cagliostro's, the idea extends
the pairing to Archbishop (B, N) and includes one General (=Amazon = R,N,B). 
Its fully twelve files, however, as realistic sequel and serious
study, may belong to distant future, despite precedent in regional,
long-lived Courier Chess.
