The combination of N+P can also be achieved in Absorption Chess, in which
case the rule is, I think, that reaching the 8th rank by using the P
component of the compound move allows promotion of the P component of the
compound piece.

Can a Dragon on the first rank make a 2 step P move, or even advance all
the way to the 4th rank?
