But if it is too fluffy and free why even bother having "sunset leap". You could just have "air magic", "combat magic" etc and loose all the cool feat names.

Take these combat feats, "slashing blow", "truesword stroke" and "swordhelp". Is there any difference between them? The answer seems to be dependent on the GM.

My first take on them would be:
swordhelp - used to augment close combat. truesword stroke - an all or nothing feat attempting to strike down a foe in one stroke.
slashing blow - ??? either of the above?
