Funny that I posted another crossover of Chess and Tafl games at the same time, yet with different aspects of Tafl games (method of capturing and winning conditions, while this uses their's idea of starting position). :)

Firstly - can't you make diagramm of starting postion? This description sounds quite uncertain.

And a question - have commanders symbolic meaning to be associated with corresponding parts of Ireland? As far as I know, north Ireland is associated with royality and knighthood, west Ireland is associated with druids, east is low-classes - peasantry and marchantry, and the south one is associated with more "magic" low-classes - as swineherds, jesters, etc.
Sorry if I said something wrong, I don't have deep knowledge in it.

Brannumh/Fidchell are sometimes crossed with chess here, there are many different forms from the original Celtic Games. There are many hybrid games like this, some of which i will be adding in the future.
