Lunar charms index

Full Moon view from earth In Belgium (Hamois).Image via Wikipedia

It is a conceit of white wolf that the Lunar Exalted Manual of Exalted power is badly organized and impossible to navigate as an out of character side effect of the in character sundering of the lunar castes. We have had the counterpoint that a character can get a lore or occult of 5 and an int of 5 and then should be able to demand form the storyteller an answer as to which is the correct charm to purchase to gain a desired effect or power. frankly we should also be able to do this to the publisher but hey. This is an early attempt to provide an outcome based index of lunar charms.

Incidentally this is the only complete list of lunar charms with page numbers I have been able to find online. if someone wants to alphabetize it, feel free.
