My response:
In real life... TonyGas, if the setup was like this, you might as well buff your king with a sanctuary spell, give him the teleport and illusion skills, and allow him to shapeshift into various pieces.  Then he could shapeshift into a queen and create the illusion that the pawn was his son all along and he inherited the crown.  Then he can use up his remaining mana to cast teleport to move himself to e8 and checkmate the king while the king's busy crowning more of his surrounding pawns into queens for further acts of adultery.  After this, you should ask yourself... "Why didn't I do this in the first place?"  And the answer to that is simple:  The enemy queens were too seductive for you to think straight.
