As far as my understanding goes, initiates can never cement a feat and can never learn a feat. They can increase their affinity. A kind narrator may give them a lower improv penalty if they've successfully used a 'new' feat several times in the past -- they are getting used to this slightly stranger magic. But that's house rules -- at least for me.

I'm finding the tendency of some narrators to forbid initiates to improvise anything new vaguely strange.

Yes. That is true. They have learned the new feat and it is now a partof their magical repitoire.

NIMG. As far as I know, you still have to improvise. We don't know the rules for things like Rune Lords (whatever they are eventually called) I think at they'd learn magic faster but I'm not really aware of just how they will be dealt with. I do know that most clans cannot afford them -- which is why we find them at the Tribal and Warband level.

And everyone has a presence on the Inner World -- having a presence on the Other Side/Godplane/HeroPlane/Plane of Bizzaro Neo-Platonic Ideals ...? That would be a large H Hero. Someone/thing who can be worshippped and provides something in return.

And these powerful magicians certainly can't improvise new things (when they get there). Its not... Mage.
