Not sure I followed you there.

The game we are playing is with all pieces gaining their Ajax moves.

The King, Guard and Elephant definitely have specific improvements over their Chinese Chess counterparts related to the Palace and River.

But the other pieces: Rook, Cannon and Knight (Horse) all also get Ajax moves.

Rooks and Cannons have a 1-step non-capturing diagonal move.

The Knight (like the Elephant) get a 1-step non-capturing move in every direction (orthogonal or diagonal).

Maybe I misunderstood your comment...
