"mistakes [sic]" isn't capitalized. That's probably significant, since this is the first time that s/he has missed one...

The squares within squares reminds me of fractals. Is there any famous square fractal like Serpinskis Triangle?

The T-square... also, a chessboard is a square with squares in it.

So, it seems that protecting TCS was the right choice? T for t square, C for crystal, S for squares?

That seems like a stretch, but I don't have any better ideas.

TheChiScientist is in danger, but is saved when jaggie34 notices the issue. My bishop is taken by your bishop. I've made my next move now...

It was very clever of you to figure out my last clue. Maybe you can figure out my next one... It's really amazing how the piece in danger happens to be a not completely horrible player. Oh yeah, I'm making all of the moves. I'd feel bad for threatening this piece, but I want to play this game... and I want to win. I'll tell you this: the piece I'm attacking may allow us to unlock the next stage of the game.

Purple letters are VENZPNEPP. A vigenere decode with the key of 'pawn' gives "GERMANICA".
The sig says "you haven't discoveRed the meaning of these. my signatuRes all fit togetheR, and each means something." I'm assuming it's with the capitalization, which in this case is R.

Castling on the 5th move; everyone can learn to win at chess w/ 5 E's capitalized; mistakes, even on the second move, can kill you; all the sigs fit together (paraphrased) w/ 3 R's capitalized, in summary.
I have a feeling the 5E has to do with the second move, as going second, you would normally move your pawn up 2 to that spot. Not sure about how the other two relate, though.

Ok, down the rabbit hole first. I'll focus on the sigs. I believe the most common way to castle on the 5th move is through the Indian Defense, or ID. In the second sig, 5 E's were capitalized. In the third, it was talking about a fools mate, also known as a 2 move mate. The fourth sit contains 3 capitalized r's. I have no idea what all of this means.
Now to the clues. I've played out a situation that fits the clues perfectly. The only possible targets are pawns, unless the sassy is targeting TCS again. I don't know what to make of the rest tho.

EDIT: Germanica was the name of a legion on the Germanic front once led by Caesar, with a presumed emblem of Taurus. Maybe the target is a history geek? I do like history, and I've mentioned doing some history competitions on the forums, but I haven't really broadcasted it.

I agree it's likely not an officer being targeted. I think it's probably someone active in this game that's not an officer

People active that aren't officers :
Me ( as in myself)
Jimmy Bond
Little Miss Nyan?
Creationist127?

I probably missed a ton of people.

i think it's interesting that the sassy has switched from emphasizing letters with capitalization (though they still do that in the sig) to with color; could purple be significant? it's probably also important to note that the sassy apparently feels bad for who they're targetting, which is also someone who isn't a horrible player and can "unlock the next stage of the game," which could mean the identity of the sassy?
