Thank you, Jörg. I did not know the Jelliss' writing "Theory of Journeys". I will study it carefully.

We can get a first approach to the relative strength of these nightriders by placing them on the central square (g7) of a 13x13 board and counting the number of squares affected/checked from there.

Doing it, we would find these results:

 NN11 Diagonal Wide Crooked Nightrider 56 NN02 Straight Wide Crooked Nightrider 36 NN31 Quintessence 36 NN00 Rose 32 NN33 Diagonal Narrow Crooked Nightrider 24 NN21 Standard Nightrider 24 NN04 Straight Narrow Crooked Nightrider 20

Hence, the following equivalences should be near to be true:

NN11 = NN00 + NN33 = NN00 + NN21 = NN31 + NN04 = NN02 + NN04

Secondary Header: `<H2>`

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

2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
3. A third ordered list item.
