Rhetoric is an engine I am jealous of, more than of the super-strong ones. It has a nice style!

Wow, thank you very much.

I always wanted to make something different and interesting (this is why the "!?" notation is in the logo).

Well, You have apparently found the way of increasing engine's aggression without sacrificing playing strength. I still struggle with that. Increasing king safety/positional weights works only to a certain extent. I have found a couple of interesting ways to imitate certain playing styles (for example, increasing opponent's mobility by 10% gives an impression of a positional finesse), but as I tune my engine, they become more and more detrimental to playing strength.
