Trebuchet is Man & Beasts renaming of problemist Three-Leaper, the same core (0,3) piece-type -- whether rectangles of squares, or odd shapes of hexagons. In this Ringworld the Trebuchet appears as one leg of sequential piece, not compound, in all four combinations possible with Wazir and Dabbabah on hexagons. Joe Joyce and Christine Bagley-Jones have considerably extended the cases by now where (0,3) and (3,3) exist in compounds as option. Sequential or componentized p-ts elsewhere include Winther's many bifurcators and Joyce's Bent Hero and Shaman. Ringworld is offshoot of AltOrthHex, so far the only non-rectangle NextChess candidate. Gilman's M&B four-leaper is called Cobbler, the key p-t for the next ring outside.
