Logs of Archabbott Chess

Archabbott moves as dabbaba (jumping two orthogonally) + wazir (one orthogonally) + bishop.

Renn Cavalier moves first as ferz (one diagonally) and then as rook or first as rook and then ferz. Slightly more flexible than its closely related cousin, the griffon.

Squirrel moves as a kNight, or leaps to the second square in any direction.

Castling is optional; If both players agree how, they may implement it.

Pawn, king, queen, kNight, bishop, and rook all move as standard Fide pieces.

The Guard moves 1 square any direction.
