5. Legend of the examples cont'd.
The cannon may not , by making use of another piece as a gun-mount (WXF is cannon mount) , perpetually chase a chariot (protected or unprotected). This applies even if the cannon or the chariot under attack remains stationary, only those pieces that function as the gun-mount are moved. Such chase is regarded as perpetual chase and thus a violation of rules. The cannon side must change his moves or he loses.

If a chariot is pinned to a rank or file by a cannon, the movement of the chariot along the line will not constitute a chase on any opponent’s piece. The opponent’s chariot is not allwowed to make a perpetual chase on the pinned chariot. This situation will NOT be viewed as a perpetual offer. However, if the pinned chariot is protected on one of its moves, then it is not a perpetual chase. Whether or not the chariot is protected, one may not chase it perpetually with a horse or a cannon.

Perpetual chase on your opponent’s pieces by a king is ruled a draw, even if one of the moves involves another piece in a simultaneous chase. Perpetual chase by a pawn is also ruled a draw. Perpetual chase on one or more pieces is also allowed. It is still a draw if one of the moves involves another piece in making the chase. A king or a pawn may not chase a piece perpetually if every move involves a simultaneous chase by another piece. It will be ruled a loss.
A king or a pawn may not chase a piece perpetually if every move involves a simultaneous chase by another piece. It will be ruled a loss.

A chariot may not perpetually chase a cross-river pawn, though the pawn may be chasing some pieces consecutively in turn. The chariot side must change his moves or lose.
Perpetual chase on >=2 pieces by a piece is allowed. Perpetual chase on >=2 by >=2 pieces is also allowed.

It is a violation of rules to make a perpetual chase on a “fake-rooted” piece. The player making the chase must change his moves or he loses. There seems to be a typing mistake with dia 81 in the rules book. I will not publish it for the time being until I get it cleared with the authorities.

When 2 pieces attack a piece , it will NOT be regarded as perpetual chase if the piece under attack has a real root. The game will be ruled a draw if both players do not change their moves.

The repetition of two consecutive chases, of which one is also an invitation to exchange pieces, is regarded as a perpetual chase. Even if both moves can be viewed as chases as well as invitation to exchange pieces it is still a perpetual chase.
In a situation where side’s A chariot and King are pinned down by side B’s chariot and cannon, and side A perpetually attack the menacing chariot with a horse or a cannon, it is regarded as a PERPETUAL CHASE on the chariot, and will be ruled as a loss.
