Wow, I feel honored that you would consider Mighty Lion Chess! Note, however, that I just posted a variant based on the same general idea (i.e. only one unorthodox, rather spectacular piece, protected by an anti-trading rule), which might be a little easier to grasp for FIDE players: Werewolf Chess. Instead of using the anti-Lion-trading rules of Chu Shogi (which are rather complex, and might feel very unnatural to Chess players), it borrowed the anti-trading mechanism of Maka Dai Dai Shogi, where the piece that captures the piece marked for 'conservation' instantly becomes one. This rule achieves practically the same, and is much easier to explain/understand.

Caveat is that I haven't really play-tested it, as none of my regular programs can do the Werewolf move yet. But September is still far away.
