    In Russian they also use the Arabic Ферзь ('Ferz'', lit, 'Vizier') for the queen

     

    Yes, i used to use the russian names of the pieces when i was a competition player. I was rated around 2150 in the early 90's which is certainly 2250 nowadays (ELO inflation). I like the russian pieces names (Slon, Ferz, Rokh) Elephant is the name of the piece in arabian chess, Rokh is the name of the mythological creature that looks like a monster eagle and able to fly with an elephant between her claws.

     

    Here are the Unicorn and Fortress

    Yep! I love the names - 

    Peshka (footsoldier)

    Lad'ya (Longboat) [In Ukrainian it's called a tura, or tower]

    Kon' (Horse)

    Slon (Elephant) [In Arabic it's called a fil, which also means elephant]

    Ferz' (Vizier)

    Korol' (King)

    Still love my old 1980s Luga chess set that I've already posted here.  

    If you don't mind me asking, musketeer, how do each of the new pieces move for your variant?
