Lunar conman Sinister Sam had two left hands. Had, because after that golden ratfink sold him out to the Wyld Hunt he had no home, no coin, and no left hands.
What happens to a Lunar's Tell when the Tell is tied to a particular bodypart and that bodypart is removed or destroyed?
I'd probably say that the absence of the body part becomes the new Tell.

The circumstances of their Exaltation are changed from Second Edition.

Solars and Lunars both have several Charms out there for gaining the use of spirit Charms, which is cool. However, I've noticed that any Lunar with God-Body Consumption can choose to spend XP to learn Eclipse-tagged Charms permanently without committed Essence, while Solars don't seem to have any way (using currently printed Charms) of doing that without the actual Eclipse anima power.

Is that deliberate, or should it be at least possible for non-Eclipse Solars to join the fun? Are spirit Charms somehow more appropriate to Lunar themes than Solar themes in general, or is it just niche protection for the Eclipse anima power?
More of the latter would be my guess.

Relentless Lunar Fury states that the Lunar can't stop fighting "until all enemies are incapacitated or have fled."

Does this mean that the Lunar can't accept an enemy's surrender and absolutely must beat unconscious (or kill) any foe who doesn't flee, or should we assume that someone who surrenders is no longer an "enemy?" The latter seems more consistent with the Charm's overall tone (since it doesn't prevent intelligent decision-making), but I feel like I'm stretching the wording a bit to get there.
You can't accept surrender. Or at least, you've gotta accept surrender by knocking the surrenderee out.

What does "donning it normally" mean? Do you get the armor then need to take (Mobility penalty +1) minutes to put it on? Or do you don the armor automatically as part of the Simple Charm?
The former.

I believe it's all colors, although if Eric says otherwise, go with what he says.

Bumping/rephrasing:

If your Resources comes from owning a business, does it correspond to your revenue, gross profit, or net profit?
I'm no accountant, so my grasp of the vocabulary isn't the best, and I didn't right the Resources Merit, so I can't speak to whether the listed income was meant to be gross or net. Given the relative non-granularity of how Resources is used, the nitty-gritty of the details isn't likely to matter much.

How do animal forms' Speed Bonuses interact with the Lunar rules about dice caps?
An animal's Speed Bonus is incorporated into its movement pools, so if you're using those, the rules just work normally.

If you're using your own natural movement pool, you add the animal's Speed Bonus to it. It's Charm dice.

Thanks!

So, just to be hella pedantic about it, because those special attacks cost initiative they cannot be used while crashed?
Right.

Along similar lines, could one use such an attack even if the cost put them into negative initiative, like using the one which costs 2i and putting oneself into -1 initiative?
No, you can't spend yourself into the negatives.

After the attack roll.

Can one use special weapon attacks based on tags (smashing, piercing, chopping) while crashed?
You can't spend Initiative while crashed, but tags that don't require spending Initiative can still be used.

Just the one.

Right.

And if I Slam/throw for the same disarm gambit I also directly roll my initiative for the gambit adding 1 die per turn of control forfeited. I have this right ?
I'm not sure a throw or slam makes sense as a gambit.
