If I make a Decisive Attack that does not include my initiative, like with Solar Cross-Counter, do I still lose two or three initiative for missing that attack?
Yeah, think so.

Yeah, you'd subtract motes from countermagic on the same tick before determining whether the spell has enough motes to go off.

How are Abyysals, Solars, and Infernals being balanced against each other? In 2E Abyssals came with a bunch of weaknesses in creation without getting much back in exchange.
They're equals.

I seem to recall one of the devs mentioning that Abyssals were made weaker with evocations than Solars to give them more power in other areas, is this still the case?
Abyssals are only resonant with soulsteel, yes.

Not currently.

Is this an error specific to that spell or are all aoe combat spells that way? I'm thinking of Death of Obsidian Butterflies at the moment, which does target enemies specifically.
Butterflies, I think it makes sense that the sorcerer could angle them around her allies. Cantata, less so.

Eye of the Fire Dragon, my apologies. Thought it was actually named after the immaculate.
Five dot red jade lance, really nasty against solars? Odenol's Codex and Aspect Book Fire have it.
It's not in Arms, but Neall keeps bugging me about it.

Most of the artifacts are new, but there are a handful of old ones in there.

I'm not sure what artifact you're talking about here?

Yes and yes.

Speaking of this, does Cantata of Empty Voices hurt allies and bystanders by default? The charm description says it hurts "enemies".
It hits everyone in range. Any reference to only hitting enemies is my error.

The differences among Ability/Attribute/Essence/Other Charms are something important to address, yeah.

I think that happens in the real world all the time. Up to a certain point, you can do it through Manipulation-based influence without needing magic.

Nice. Lunars are more fun to interact with when they are scary terrifying monsters. Have you decided how you are handling proportionality favored to non-favored charms? With the 3e Solars I've played, I find I only rarely need or even want to buy charms at the non-favored cost. The old 3+1 favored Attributes was incredibly restricting, but would it simply be a matter of adding more or something subtler?
The current plan is choose 2 of 3 Caste Attributes + 2 Favored Attributes.

Since 3E Infernal Charms draw on a wider range of Yozi thematically, is it likely that the “become a doppelgänger of another character but with the Intimacies inverted” Shintai will draw on Szoreny instead of the Ebon Dragon? Equal and opposite inversions tying better to “reflection” than “shadow” (which in turn might better fits drawing out the hidden parts of characters that were already there)...
Yep, especially since Ebon-Dragon-as-Nemesis is being discarded.

Yes, mortals can pass on the blood of the Dragons.

The latter. (And it doesn't have to be a hundred years.)
