Hi folks,

I have done some of my L5R conversion to HW, and just wanted someone to look over them and see if there appear to be any egregious errors. Mostly, I just want to check whether these "feel right" as affinities and feats; do these appear to make sense, anything too obscure, anything too repetitive, etc. They are all oriented around warriors (which is why I am worried about duplication), and in principle all or most should make sense in HW terms, there should be no need for prior knowledge of L5R. Lastly, these may serve as inspiration for others working on feats, should there be any, especially of a martial nature. Any commenst appreciated. Where "type" appears, I mean the Gloranthan runic equivalent.
