Probably at least a decade ago, this was the game that lead me to, due to a random link for the berserker pawns.  I lurked for YEARS, but finnally started posting comments.

Thank you for leading me here!  I've been inventing chess variants since I was a teenager, and didn't know I wasn't the only one!

Frankly, this is not a balanced variant.
But it has some of the coolest ideas on the site.  I've been tossing around various ways of using the ideas since I stumbled upon it.  Maybe someday I'll get something playable...especially the Bezerker Pawns!
