Good point about the discovered check with that particular rule.

I used a little programming trick to get this to work.  I'll send you the
implementation so that you can admire it.  But basically, I used the
Zillions engine itself to perform most of the function.

As to the shape of the Knight leap, I opted for the simple 'L' pattern. 
This means that Pawns orthogonally adjacent to the Knight's position are
captured using this rule.  This would continue to allow Pawns to threaten
the Knight un-opposed.  But if there is a big demand to include any
adjacent Pawn, I can implement this in a variant.

This implementation is still in need of some serious play-testing.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
