A common complaint about why the style is OP is that you can use a shape sorcery o command action and still attack in that turn, but that seems like a loophole rather than a rule.
It is the intent, not a loophole.

After exaltation a solar is aware of his status as a chosen. Are they also aware of their extended life span?
If right after exalting a god asks the solar to protect a vilage in exchange for a daiklave, would the solar think of that as spending his whole life in servitude?
It's possible that a Solar might be aware of her lifespan through past life memories.

AtG and I have a disasgreement about the 3-dot, "gliding" variation of the Wings innate Merit.
I interpret this in the light of how Exalted normally models falling, which is to say that characters fall any distance to ground immediately. The distance you travel upwards via Heaven Thunder Hammer and the distance you fall back to earth are all covered within the single instant; a single tick at most.
I believe the latter interpretation is the correct one.

Robert Vance and Eric Minton Do you intend to have community involved playtests for Dragon Bloods? Or other splats for that matter? I know problems occurred in the core tests, but are you guys open to revisit it? I know Dragon Blooded are my favorite splat so I'd jump through absolutely all the hoops to get a chance to playtest them. I won't be mad if you say no, just might have to change my avatar to a sad dog in a bowl.
We really haven't talked about the specifics at all, but it's definitely not off the table.

Having opened with some critique, I do want to second the statement that it's cool to be able to see some idea of where DBs are going, and I really appreciate presenting some of the stuff (and even some systems!) here for public opinion. That's a cool thing.
Thank you! If there wasn't any criticism, that's when I'd be worried.

Enhancing Resolve, Guile, or read intentions would all count.

Can they lower them to 0 or to a minimum of 1?
Unless otherwise stated, the minimum is zero.

A warstrider's controls aren't meant to be used by a horse, of course, of course—unless, of course, it's a warstrider designed for a horse.

Emerald Chevalier is a quadrupedal charger-model warstrider created during the Shogunate. I guess you could just replace its whole upper body situation with a big horse head.

The Lore system operates in a weird space where it allows a player to use their character's traits to make up facts. The made up facts represent things the character knew ahead of time (I think). So all of that being said, what sort of timing does the Intelligence + Lore roll have? Is it reflexive? Can it be used in combat?
It's a miscellaneous action. You can use it in combat.

In the QC section on Cataphract, it notes that iron deals aggravated damage but most armies in creation use Bronze or Steel. I take it this means Steel is sufficiently different from Iron that Fae are not susceptible via Cold Iron Bane?
Correct. It's gotta be straight-up iron to trigger the fae vulnerability.

Yes, but they don't let you bypass the normal requirements that First Age Artifice entails.

Harmonious Presence Meditation lowers the cost of all "social influence Charms" by 1 mote, but there is no corresponding definition to tell us exactly what this covers.

If a Charm is covered, does this also lower the commitment cost of the Charm if it is of Indefinite Duration?
All social influence-related Integrity, Presence, Performance, and Socialize Charms, as well as any other Charms that involve social influence mechanics—Bureaucracy has Charms that enhance your bargaining, Black Claw style has Outrage-Kindling Cry.

Mote discounts do lower the committed costs of Charms, including Indefinite Charms.
