I think that'd be fine.

What's your favourite Artefact name from Lunars: Fangs at the Gate?
It's hard to really pick a favorite. Right now, I'll say the Hundred Rings of Hadam-Ul.

It takes a certain panache.

The ones that don't specify your familiar's gotta be an animal.

A few demons seem to have normal animal portions or just be an assemblage of them, so would that factor into it, at least as far as the likes of Mara (deer legs) or Florivet (wolfowlman) are concerned?
It's more that Lunars have cool disguise Charms.

Quick question:
Is it though if the Abyssal Exalted will have a charm similar to Wyld-Shaping Technique but that can only be used on the Underworld, as Second Edition had?
Undetermined.

If a character lower in the initiative clashes your character and crashes yours, and an initiative shift occurs, do they get to make two follow up attacks? One on the turn of the clash when the shift occurs, and again because they're now at the top of the initiative tracker.
Initiative shifting gives you a free attack. If you'd normally get an attack in addition to that, you still get it.

Could one theoretically use a skycutter as an improvised melee weapon?
Sure, the same way you could chuck a daiklave as an improvised Thrown weapon.

Or could a specialty allow it to be used as a regular one?
Specialties do not work that way.

Heh, I just realized with Lunars only able to take human or animal shape, a very paranoid DB could have a place entirely staffed by Elementals or Demons if he wants to be sure his servants won't suddenly eat his heart. Is that something careful DBs do in the setting?
That's the kind of thing a sorcerer could do. Of course, cutting out human contact and surrounding yourself with enslaved monsters is the sort of thing that's why the Realm has such a stigma against sorcerers.

And, of course, just because a Lunar can't shapeshift into a demon doesn't mean she can't disguise herself as one.

Are there other counter-measures the Realm has taken against such?
Yep.

I'd advise against circumventing that limitation, as it's there for a specific reason, but if you're the Storyteller, then how do I plan to stop you?

Do they have an instinctual understanding of how to do the sacred hunt, and that they can gain forms by eating hearts?
More or less. If you want your backstory to have Luna showing you how to perform the sacred hunt, or a First Age flashback that shows it to you, you can do that, but it's not something you'll need a tutor to learn.

But I think the most important question of all, when it comes to Lunars is this:
Does Dog-Tongue Method still exist?
Is it still called Dog-Tongue Method?
Is there a mechanical bonus for players if they bark like a dog, meow like a cat, etc, when using the charm?
There's a comparable effect, but it's not really the same. Different name, different Attribute.

How many charms in the Lunars book include the word "Puppy" in the title?
None. Lunars are red in tooth and claw, not cutesy.

So this turned into a debate in my game last night. A Solar flying with evocations is fueling a storm god who is also flying. The storm god wants the fight to move upwards towards the storm clouds above, while the Solar wants to move the fight towards the ground below. Neither is actually wanting to disengage and increase the distance to one another. Any advice on how to resolve it?
Without specific magic or extrinsic means of motivation, there's no way to compel an enemy to follow you.

Nah, their sensory enhancement Charms go their own way.

Assuming that future splat book Kickstarters have the various “add a charm or artifact to the companion book” levels, would it cause problems if backers at that level submitted a fully realized charm or artifact that they had written instead of just an idea?

What if they had already posted said charm or artifact to the internet (or Storyteller’s Vault)? Would that be a different issue?
It's likely that the submitted Charm/artifact would undergo edits and revisions, but beyond that, it's not an issue.

I'm not sufficiently familiar with the Storyteller's Vault's terms of use to speak authoritatively on it. I'd have to ask.
