You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Shogi-style drops are nice way to make Maharajah-like games more balanced. And in Shogi initial position this kind of Maharajah have chance to capture unprotected pawn.
And I think it would be fair rule, so if Shogun will manage to have roughly same power as opponent (perhaps, there is needed some certain system of piece values to count), he will demote do normal King.
