Nightrider Armies. Nightriders replace rooks and nightrider compounds replace rook compounds in four variants.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Interesting concept. I'm wondering if, in at least some variants with nightriders replacing rooks in their setup, allowing a king to castle with a nightrider in some fashion might prove feasible. I assume such a rule is not being used with any of the variants offered by this preset.
