Doug, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Very few chess ideas nowadays are both original and interesting. The concept of 'long, but not short' movement can be traced back centuries (after a fashion).

'Taliah (Picket) ... is another piece of Tamerlane chess. The Taliah can move any distance along the four diagonal directions as long as the path is unobstructed and it moves at least two squares. It may not leap and it may not stop on the first square.'
