    e8=N. Forced mate after that with Nd6 and Nb7# with nothing to stop it with the threat of Ra1#.

    The knight still works. Black has no other peices to move besides the rook so he'd have to move the rook or take my rook. But white can get the knight to b7# by the time black has anything to stop it.

    Edit: Wait, which way are the pawns moving?

    1.e8N Rg1 2.Kh5 Rd1 3.Nd6 Rxd6 4.Ra1# looks unusually good.
    Why don't you say: Looks unusually well? Thank you in advance.
    Merry Christmas!

    Why Rd1? Black still has the stalemate after 1.e8N Rg1 2. Kh5? Rxh4 3.Nd6 Rh5+ and the king is trapped and prepetetual check, or 50 move rule, or 3-time repetition, whichever comes first.
