    I suppose. Really, none of the abilities are truly based on samurai abilities, but are certainly similar to them, I suppose.

    Also, a Paladin with the Long Arm of the Law and Ranged Smite would be pretty fun. Or a ranger really.

    Because the Samurai's Kyuujutsu line is based on the Japanese Hankyuu, which is a longbow used while mounted. A few of those abilities also give a bonus to riding stuff for that exact reason. Also, it is rather tropetastic for western shooters to also have a horse (which is what Silver is from, Silver being the Lone Ranger's horse). Shooting from a horse, or a horse chase-scene is a classic for any western movie or show. In actuality? Horses were really necessary in an area where the climate is really desperate and harsh.

    [Edit]: And the feat is updated, no reference to Samurai, and all of the pronouns have been changed to second person, from third person.
