On the Game Courier preset for this game, I described the rules more concisely, and I wrote "Upon reaching the last rank, a Pawn may promote to a Voidrider, Rook, Bishop, or Knight." Since a Pawn can move its space forward if there isn't a space in front of it, its movement forward is not impeded by spaces moving around.
