    How would you have the claws/fangs/hooves/horns mutation work for animal forms? I'd assumed that they'd just function with the same accuracy/damage/parry bonus as in human form if you're a lunar using your own pools, but as they're written to modifiy your unnarmed attack*, unlike say, Wood Dragon Claws which create "a weapon with the same tags as an unarmed attack", it's unclear how they'd work on an animal which doesn't have an unnarmed attack.

    *(which is kind of weird, I'd have assumed if you grew medium horns in human form you could still punch people same as before with light weapon stats but since it modifies your existing unnarmed attack rather than giving an alternate unnarmed/natural weapon I guess not)
    I'd apply it to one of the animal's natural weapons, and just have the "grants medium weapon traits" bit run on the assumption that the underlying attack is a light weapon.

      There's no objective amount of time you have to spend attending a working, As a Storyteller, three simultaneous workings is where I'd probably start emphasizing the time constraints and introducing some complications.

        Powerful only applies at close range.

          Any change if using, say, a Belt of Shadowwalking (from the Corebook) to become an immaterial shadow?
          If you're dematerialized, your anima isn't visible to people who can't see the dematerialized.

            EDIT: Realized that’s a partly odd way to ask that question since there’s not much point in distinguishing between the “base” and “use instead of Strength” parts of the damage of an entire category of weapon that never adds Strength, so a rephrase is probably in order: Why do mortal* siege weapons essentially only have the damage of mortal heavy weapons after accounting for Strength or the Crossbow/Flame tags?

            * Artifact siege weapons by contrast are a few damage more than artifact heavy which confuses me even more (why the difference)?
            Balance concerns.

              Steel Devil feels like it's definitely emphasizing you having one blade in your main hand and one in your offhand, which I don't think is a great fit for stuff like that?

                Spells can have long-term or permanent effects. We'd be less likely to print Ritual of Elemental Empowerment because workings handle stuff like that very well and we have limited wordcount.

                  • Thank you for your answers!

                    For the Lunar charm Monarch-Wing Migration, does a ship's crew count towards the limit of characters? Most even medium-sized ships have vastly more than Essence × 2 people on board — unless it's meant for exclusively small boats or sorcerous ships (like Floral Ferry or the Folding Ship), which would sharply limit its usability. Is that the intent?

                    • So for fun I tried making a Lunar Full Moon Viking Berserker/ Fury Warrior but could only find two animals with the berserker trait. What gives?

                      And why does the bear has the berserker trait when the Northren Ursia does not? And why not dinos or sea animals? Can we expect more berserker animals? and will there be berserker animals that aren't mammals?

                      or just in a larger context will there be more animals that synegizes with lunar protean keyword?

                      • Do charms that protect against being forcibly moved like Unmoving Mountain Stance and Unmoving Aurochs Defense also protect against being knocked prone?

                        • If a lunar uses Mountainous Spirit Expression to turn legendary size in their human form, can they still benefits from the protean effect of grizzly bear embrace? So long as they remain legendary size?

                          • Could a Lunar theoretically alter her animal shape's fur (or scales, skin) pattern, using Many-Faced Moon Transformation in such a way that they could then benefit from the advantages of the Camouflage merit in basically any environment?
                            iE make a tiger shape have leopard spots / lion's sand color to have camouflage in the savannah? Make their lion shape have snow leopard's spots for the taiga and/or mountains?
                            Is that too cheesy, or basically a reasonable usage of a charm that cost 8xp?

                            And if yes, where do you draw the line? Can I give my tiger ninja color to have urban camouflage and hunt in Nexus?
