The 'transcendental prelate' of David Paulowich's forced mate example goes to 'any square of the opposite colour adjacent to any of the squares a normal bishop can go to'--Chess Cafe's Tim Harding Kibitzer #31, invented by George Botterill in 1960's. This is unique way to present a problem with up to three alternative pieces that work. I estimate Transcendental Prelate, new here in CVP, to be less than Queen value, 8 or 9 points depending on board size and piece mix.
