|Keyword Query:||Can A Bishop Jump Its Own Player|
|Interpretation:||You've maybe heard about Medieval Chess, where a Bishop could jump and want to know if that's still the case, but with its own army.|
Apparently, during the Medieval period, the rules of Chess permitted the Bishops to jump other Pieces - friend or enemy - but they were restricted to moving a maximum of 2 squares, per turn.
The modern game of Chess is different and the Bishop's pattern of movement has been altered.
Bishops CANNOT jump, anymore - not their own player's troops; nor the enemy's men ...
But, to compensate, they have a long-range, along the diagonals of their their designated color squares.
