So, if Lunars can take shapes of altered creatures such as Wyld mutants and the like, how does that square with the prohibition on the shapes of magical animals? Is it a matter of purely physical changes, like, say, a tiger with a mossy coat and wooden claws, versus energetic changes, like an aughdeighe's Icy Hide Merit?
A mutated animal and a magical creature are just two totally different things.
EDIT: On another issue entirely: Lunars can't awaken the magical talents of their animal shapes that have such. Could a new Charm enable such feats, or perhaps learning each new magical talent as if it were an Evocation of the shape?
That would have bad outcomes, balance-wise.
