Terachess is a very advanced game.  Played on a 16 x 16 board, with 64 pieces on each side, with 24 types of pieces it is complicated.  The pieces are different in many ways.  Terachess is part of a very advanced chain of series, starting with Shako.  The first new piece that I think is the best to introduce is the corporal.  The only difference between the pawn and the corporal is it can move diagonal by one.  The camel is like an extended knight, moving by a 2x4 rectangle.  The Amazon is K+Q, the Marshall is K+R, and the Cardinal is K+B.  The bull is like an extended camel, moving in a 3x4 rectangle.  The Buffalo is a Knight, Camel, and Bull combined.  The cannon is a like a rook but needs a friendly piece or an enemy piece in between its target.  A bow is the same thing but diagonal.  A star is cannon+bow.  The lion can move like a knight, and can move orthogonally and diagonally by one or two.  The eagle goes one diagonal then an unlimited amount horizontally or vertically.  It may not jump over pieces.  The prince is a king not hindered by check.  It may move forward twice on the first move.  The king may move like a lion in its first move.  The antelope moves orthogonally or diagonally by two or three.  The ship is the same as the eagle but it can only move vertically.  The rhino can move like a knight then a bishop and the bishop row that it controls, the one to the right of it, the rhino also controls.  All for now, folks.
