Here player upgrades one piece and one Pawn by own choice and then all the play is normal except for following sentence. The two-per-side substitutes situated in standard array can never check. Interesting are the upgrade possibilities. Knight becomes Squirrel. As Betza's Chess Different Armies forces are set up by Betza for rough equivalence, here in Illusionary player needs sense of which enhancement is best for own skill, in choosing the piece to expand. Pawn becomes (Pawn + Berolina), close but not identical to Sergeant of 1940's Wolf Chess. Neither radical nor pretentious change for OrthoChess fans, like the teacher's Comment suggests.
