Seems interesting, if a bit hard to read because of the poor grammar and spelling.

Still, it seems like you've taken the basic idea straight from this. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=198382)

What he said. Punctuation is your friend.

Also, ability score prerequisites for feats are conventionally odd numbers only in 3.x edition.

Here are some of my 3.5e Ninja (and Monk) feats in progress.

Ninja Feat Brew Jutsu (http://andionisurand.blogspot.com/2011/10/ninja-feat-brew-jutsu.html)

I like both your feat ideas BTW and perhaps a collaboration could be arranged.

I think LibreOffice (a free program similar to Word) also comes with spellcheck.
