    "If a Solar has motes from Harmony with Nature Approach committed (no cost, instant charm duration, once per day generate Survival only motes with a simple action that vanish at the end of the day if they aren’t used, Miracles of the Solar Exalted, pg. 34) to an effect lasting longer than one day (Elements-Sculpted Avatar, Eye-Deceiving Camouflage, Saga Beast Virtue, etc.), can the Solar activate Harmony with Nature Approach again on another day or must all charms supported by the extra motes end before the Solar can gain more motes from Harmony with Nature Approach?"
    There's not any textual basis for answering that question, so that ultimately comes down to your discretion as Storyteller. I think what I'd do is count any leftover motes against the amount generated by subsequent activations.

      Moon-Blessed = Children of Lunar Exalted who get a touch of magical power from that.

      Beastfolk = Humans with animal features. Some are children of Lunars, some are created by Lunars, others are Wyld mutants, others got a blessing from an animal god, others got warped by sorcery, etc. Lots of places they can come from.

      Do they get minor supernatural abilities like the Tells from Werewolf the Forsaken's Wolfblooded?
      Moon-Touched can essentially be thought of as a type of god-blodoed in terms of their access to supernatural power.

        You could definitely run that as a one-woman show.

          wait what

          I was very much under the impression that wasn't the case at all! In the corebook, Beginning a Basic/Major Project (both!) say that you need the correct tools, materials, and Craft ability. Between that and Arete-Shifting Prana being a thing, I was entirely convinced that you couldn't do a project without at least a dot in the relevant skill, and given how finely Craft skills are divided, I thought that would require either a massive experience/training time expenditure or being really quick on the draw with Hero-style 'Calligraphy and architecture share the same basic principles...' lines to feed the Storyteller.

          So, to be clear, you can do Basic and Major projects without the specific skill required, just barging through on Int and audacity? Because if that's the case, most of my problems with the crafting system just went up in smoke.

            thanks! he wants me to ask another question that is kinda related .

            Are motes drawn by Essence Drawing Method of Spirit-Tied Pet (pg. 410, Ex 3rd Core Edition) separate from the Solar’s normal mote pool, or do they recover spent motes? If they are separate, if they are committed to a charm with a duration of indefinite, will they interfere with the drawing of motes from other familiars?

              They go into your normal pool.

                The Storyteller might deem some projects impossible without actually having dots in an appropriate Craft, but that's not all of them. I don't know the first thing about carpentry, but I can put together an Ikea bookshelf.

                • Are you going to do any previews of Lunar charms/rules like you did with DBs? Are they likely to be sooner or later?

                  Dr Soma Vaidya, viper-totem Lunar and kung-fu doctor

                  • Would being Moon-Blessed only apply to the first generation, while Beastfolk features can be passed down?

                      Don't want to give an ex cathedra answer to that before we've had enough time to talk it over.

                        Sooner.

                        • Lunars might not be the Lorax, or otherwise have a major environmentalist bent running through the whole, but would you find it plausible for there to be the odd individual Lunar that identifies more with a certain species of animal, prefers to hang out with it, and acts as an advocate for them and champions their preservation? Enkidu if he was never beguiled by the lures of civilization? A Nymeria to help organise wolves against Medieval European attempts to exterminate them?


                          I have approximate knowledge of many things.

                            • What kinds of magic qualify for a roll-off against Judge’s Ear Technique? Any kind (as long as it’s enhancing a lie)? Simple-type only? Perfect effects only? Something else?

                                Stuff that can specifically contest infallible lie detection. Don't think anything's been printed yet, but there's at least one coming up.
