Assumptions to be corrected:
Are we allowed to promote to hawk, elepant, amazon?
pompom can take white
That's up to you guys.
If neither of you has a problem with what's in post #3, they become the rules.
I'm okay with promotions to anything (except king or pawn, of course)
And would promoted pawns turn back into pawns when captured like in bughouse and crazyhouse?
I'll play with "yes", although you'd have to ask ichabod since he's the creator.

I think his account has been closed for a while.
Anyways, I'll just play with yes, promoted pawns turn back into pawns when captured.
how do we keep track of which pieces were promoted?

what happens if we underpromote and then upgrade?
By "underpromoting" do you mean:
Anything other than a queen
Anything other than an elephant
Anything other than an amazon
All of the above
for example: I promote to a queen and later upgrade to an amazonr by placing an elephant. then you capture the avatar. do you get nothing ar do you get the elephant or do you get the avatar,.
and if you get nothing how is this indicated on the board.
notice the Iget nothing for promoted pawns increases the possibility of under promotion: you promote pawn to rook on protected square ; I definitely donot take it with an elephant, and might not take it with bishop.
Well, I don't know... maybe promoted pieces that get captured is used as the promoted piece?
