It looks fun, but i have a few questions:
1. Can promoted elephant and knight be further promoted to pegasus and gold respectively? I suppose, no, as in shogi variants.
2. Isn't knight stronger than camel? Maybe, on large board they have same value, and it makes promotion interesting: in normal shogi gold and silver also have same value, so you have to think before promote or not promote.
3. How en-passant is possible if pawns captures as they move? Or you meant that they can move either diagonally or orthogonally forward, that is, as iron general or sergeant?
4. Is stalemate win or draw and can one mate with pawn drop?

I want to try it when you'll answer these questions.
