Regarding rotating the pieces, ANY rotation swaps rouind two pairs out of
top/bottom, left-rigt, front/back and leaves one pair alone. Changing
ownership of an unpromoted piece swaps front/back and leaves top/bottom
alone. Promotion swaps top/bottom and leaves front/back alone. Changing
ownership of a promoted piece and simultaneous demotion (as in Shogi
capture) swaps both and leaves left/right alone. Tnunelshogi
intermewdiate
promotion leaves top/bottom alone but swaps top/left/bottom/right
cyclically.
	Regarding piece details what I keep off the page is name origins. I
briefly describe moves here, but admittedly assume familiarity with two
components and ability to extrapolate a third. Perhaps before describing
linepiece promotion I should add a sentence (with suitable hyperlinks):
'Their respective short-range versions the Wazir, Ferz, and Viceroy do
NOT occur as pieces here but are mentioned as their moves are added
during
promotion and are also components of generals.' Would this help or is
something even more explicit needed?
