Hey Greame!

Very interesting looking variant.  The fact of having a lot of familiar pieces makes playing this game seem easier to me.  It could probably be a great 'gateway variant' for those not yet introduced to our world.  The only thing I would suggest is maybe a triple step pawn rule.  Otherwise, play could start fairly slow and pawn structures could remain unchanged for the most part.  Are you putting out a preset for it?  I'd give you a game.
