If you use a weapon is it possible to attack with Martial arts and defend with Melee? Does that work with form charms?
As long as it's a Melee weapon that's compatible with a Martial Arts style you've got, sure.

Aside from the new geography (Way too many lakes) there hasn't been much published to indicate that Harborhead is much different culturally, politically, militarily or economically from previous editions, and the old write-ups are...cringy is being polite about it. I'm not expecting a full 130 page 'House of the Bull-God but-More-Woke" but it would be nice to know if that particular region were getting some updates.
We don't currently plan to detail it in any of the books we're currently working on, beyond the description of it in House Cathak's holdings.

If an Exalt uses something like Monkey Leap Technique while being in Close Range with an opponent to jump 1 range band straight up, does this allow them to benefit from Swift Talon Strike's rerolling of 2s in addition to 1s on their attack?

Would the opponent get a chance to contest this rush if they do not have charms that let them leap into the air in order to prevent this bonus?
No, jumping up and falling doesn't count as "moving downward to reach close range."

So an Hearteater question-

Will the Exigents appendix detail enough of who/what the Hearteaters where before their corruption in terms of their former themes, role and abilities to give us a general sense of not only what they are, but who they were?
It discusses what they were, but not in extensive detail.

I know that just about any question concerning the Fair Folk is liable to have the answer that they're too far off to make concrete statements about.

But... do you guys ever have thoughts about the significance of gossamer to them? I'm not talking about the Background or the use as a numerical quantity for charging Charms, but more the societal and individual connotations it held, what it meant to possess a source for it or trade it amongst one another.
It's not something we've focused on so far.

Yep. They last until you undo them.

What would you recommended as rating for an artifact; that as a base power decreases the time interval for sorcerous workings?

(i.e. one week becomes three days, a month becomes one week, a season becomes a month and so on.) Specifically, it does not add extra means as part of the base power.
There's a lot of factors involved, and I don't really have enough information to make a good recommendation.

What are the signature abilities of a abyssal? as in the things they do and everyone is like "this is the work of an abyssal?",what are their Charms,Artifacts and Spells based on?
Abyssals are legendary heroes whose magic evinces the bleak power of death - cruel death, death unconquerable, death triumphant, death that makes your life seem small - and the the iconic magic of the Deathlords.

There wouldn't be a single generic reaction. Coren is noted as keeping her lineage a secret not because she's afraid of what other Dragon-Blooded would think, but because of what her family, a house devoted to hunting down and slaying demons and other Anathema would think.

Are Solars automatically resonant with everything, or could an artifact made out of something sufficiently weird (one of Alveua's creations, for example, or something torn from the heart of something from the part of the Wyld where time, causality, and color are alien concepts) be neutral or even dissonant for them?
Solars are resonant with everything, unless an artifact specifies that it isn't resonant with Solars.

In a similar vein, are Sidereals and Getimians dissonant with artifacts that don't include any of the standard magical materials, or merely neutral?

(Referencing Arms of the Chosen pp. 16-17, which seem to me to be unclear on these points)
Non-Solar Exalted are dissonant with any artifact that doesn't include one of the magical materials, unless otherwise noted.

It'll reference specific materials they import from certain satrapies.

Abyssal(in 3e) Questions!

What mechanics are their charms based on this time?
I'm not totally sure what you're asking. They have Ability-based Charms, if that's what you mean?

Could you give me some example of things that Abyssals can do no one else can?
I find "what can these people do that no one else can" isn't really a useful way of defining them. Like, it'd be impossible to talk about what Lunars do without talking about shapeshifting—but other Exalted can use sorcery or Evocations to shapeshift.

What are the main differences between Abyssals and Liminals?
They're so hugely different that it's hard to single out any one main difference. Their concept, their play experience, the narratives they encourage, their place in the setting, their Charm sets, their power level, and their fictional inspirations are all totally different.

Are God-Blooded DBs considered purified by their Exaltation and not subject to extra scrutiny? Or a lower tier of scrutiny comparable with the casual distrust of DB sorcerers among other Dynasts?
I doubt they face much scrutiny from the Order—it's largely applied to God-Blooded to make sure they don't engage in proscribed interactions with their parent spirits, but those largely don't exist for Dragon-Blooded.
