For the record, I don't know how to make horse archery other than boring in RuneQuest, either.
Argh, I'm drawn back into that infamous feat debate by Benedict:
>Firstly, the term 'Sunset Leap' does impose *some* structure and
>limit on creativity: the feat must have something to do with sunsets
If it were the Salmon Leap feat (a feat from Celtic sagas), would it have to have anything to do with salmon? I don't believe so, but rather it would allow jumping vertically. It's jumping *like* a salmon.
I don't think that the Sunset Leap really has anything to do with sunsets, but it allows horizontal jumps (with similar logic -- toward sunset is not towards the noon sun). I think people are reading more into it than is required, and it's just a name. Any more than the "Enhance Gustbran" spell from RQ3 actually did anything to the god Gustbran.
But as in Doyle's example, it's not necessarily wrong for your game to require a connection with sunset (chronological or directional).
