Fake Medieval Chess

I saw this on youtube, he unfortunately convinced some poor kid that his modern variant was how chess was played during the middle ages for his homework. Don't worry! I pointed him to my Shatranj tutorial. An interesting variant nonetheless.

The video with that title is certainly misleading but a look at the website shows the guy is interested in medieval warfare, and that Medieval Chess is a new form of chess that is fun and challenging. It's not really clear, however, if trebuchets use igui capture or not but I assume they do.
Wouldn't hurt to put in a disclaimer, though; good concept but the name unfortunately clashes with what already exists.
