     Echo (?) mates. (Author)

Madrasi Rex InclusiveMutually attacking black and white units of the same type (including Kings) paralyse each other, so that they may no longer move or give check. The paralysis may be removed, for example by interference (in the case of line pieces), or by capture of either of the paralysed units.

Grasshopper: Hops on Q-lines over any one unit (the hurdle) to the next square beyond.
