I like this variant. Not original of course, but I don't care. I'm not fond of those who patent their CV "invention", I think it is presumptuous and quite inefficient for what they are looking for. In the case of Falcon Chess, it seems to me that the patent is exhausted for not renewing the fees.

Anyway, ChessXP is quite simple and well designed. The position of the CZ is optimal. The rules for Pawn's move is clever. About the name of the CZ, I would have preferred that the tradition of Bison (yes, at least from 1974 and probably older among problemists) is kept. There are too many Falcons/Hawks/Ospreys already, for example Schulz's Falcon in Hunter-Falcon chess in the 40s (fBbR), Hawk of Musketeer chess (ADGH), another one in Seirawan chess, etc. Why departing from the Bison?

Apart from that, very good!
