there are general arguments but it's mostly white vs black

of course, there can be some inter-alliance rivalries for example: pawns always resent their powerful teammates because the powerful ones send the pawns to their deaths.

Well, if pieces get traded off, usually bishops and lights get pitted head to head. So maybe the white knight and the black bishop are rivals, eh?

That sounds fun.
Would the rivalry stem from one of them defeating the other in a past game? Or would it be something else?

Okay, @QuoolQuo. If you wanna be rivals, you want my bishop to have killed your knight or vice versa?

Cool, also I just have small question
Do all the pieces of one colour start in one place or their traditional positions on a chessboard? Also, what exactly is the relationship between them and how do they communicate?

@QuoolQuo yes all of the pieces start off in their traditional positions. Their relationship . . . well . . . it's more neutral. They get hostile and insults are often exchanged, but the relationship between the two teams is the MOST hostile.

Also, they kind of communicate mind-to-mind. Er. The pieces on one team communicate mind-to-mind.

Alright, just another small question (because that’s all I seem able to do)
With movements, do the pieces take turns or do they set off all at once?

Ah, you see, in the first game, they all moved one at a time, one piece at a time, alternating between white and black at sunrise and sunset. However, they can all roam free once the second game starts, as they begin to notice. After that, it's pandemonium. Obviously, the Knights are the first to move. They are the only piece that can jump over the pawns. After that, the other pieces will pester the pawns with messages to move. Then, the pawns will move, followed by the powerhouses (Queens, Bishops, Rooks). In fact, the King can also play an active role in strategizing with the other pieces. Since each team can communicate mind-to-mind, it makes the strategizing much easier.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
