Eh? You can only create new feats by Improvising them, then Cementing after play. They cannot 'learn' new feats, as they must Improvise every use of magic from the same Affinity Rating. Your rule is the reverse of the standard rules. If you prefer to create your own house rules, great, we all do. But if you intend to allow Initiates to use their Affinity TN with no penalty for the feats listed in the rules, it makes Devotee status pretty pointless...

That's the standard rules. But none of our players have had any need to create a new feat (I did, as Narrator, as the result of a Divine Intervention roll - "I'm a bit busy to help in person, but try this..."), the given ones cover pretty much everything, so I'd say it was a very minor change from Initiate status, where they can't cement new feats (or old ones).

I've no idea what you intend by this, there are no Runelords as yet in HW, although I think there is something akin in Thunder Rebels.
