A really good concept, Daniil.  My only reservation is with the labelling.  This is not a "crossover".  A crossover is a game which combines elements of chess with elements of a game that is not chess.  Examples include Football Chess, Cheskers (a Chess-Checkers hybrid) and Gess (a Chess-Go hybrid).  What you've done is synthesize (artfully!) two games that are both varieties of chess.  A synthesis, yes, but a crossover, no.
