Initiates have access to it - - they do can improvise these without trouble. They cannot cement these feats however.

Yes, you are relating them too closely to Runespells. Be more flexible in your interpretation. If you must, think of Affinities and feats as a mix of runespells and battle magic -- a light +1 augment of Sword Help something like Bladesharp. A huge throbbing +12 edge might be something like a truesword + bladesharp + whatever. But I'm managed to forget my runespells and work with affinities and feats... You'll probably find the game to be much less work that way.

The magic system is much more flexible than you are permitting the players to use. An initiate can improvise feats based on the affinity if they are mythologically appropriate but they cannot LEARN feats and they cannot CEMENT feats.

I see. Hmmm. I think you're being overly restrictive of the initiates however.

There are MENTION of them and the commentin the FAQ was a throw-away comment by Roderick to answer 'whatever happened to Runelords'. Nothing more on diciples is currently published. I suspect more won't be in Thunder Rebels due to space/rules constraints.
