(If so, I have no idea what to expect from such an Exigent. I guess they could have mirror/reflection-themed Charms, but that seems a little too boring.)
If the Storyteller has interesting ideas for that.

Would a better description for the Exigence be that it's not an Exaltaiton in itself, but kind of a catalyst for it? It grants capabiltiy to Exalt to the god, but it in itself isn't an Exaltation, right?
That's a good way of putting it.

Concerning "...are sent Elsewhere.

That is, would a Lunar wearing Seven Furies Caged turning into a kitty cat have to be covered in silver plates, spikes, and bits of bone?
Not as written, but it's probably fine to do that in your game as no one is cheesing it to reflexively remove armor for combat hax purposes.

Are spirits inherently aware of the business' legitimacy?

​Because in one of my games, I allowed an Eclipse PC to bluff her way past some ghost guards by flashing her Caste mark and saying she was sent there to perform maintenance. (She was not sent there to perform maintenance.) I figured the ghosts, not knowing if her business was legitimate, didn't want to run the risk of being cursed by Heaven for attacking her.
Spirits don't have an intrinsic legitimate business detection awareness, unless you count "trying to attack or breach decorum and seeing whether or not that's possible."

They don't eat literal hearts.

Their Charms are a monstrous inversion of what they once were.

Sure. 10char

I know Heavenly Ladder style was deemed too absurd for the core Exalted experience, but would you ever consider tuning it up and releasing it on the Storyteller's Vault?
I don't plan to release anything on Storyteller's Vault. If I want to make Heaven's Ladder happen, I can just do that.

[QUOTE=Jefepato;n1340904]Can a Solar using Power-Snaring Image with Flashing Quill Atemi to change the target of social influence actually use it to turn some sort of written magic against its original user?
[quote]
Sure.

Assuming it is, would the Dragon-Blooded "victim" be compelled by DotBB's Psyche effect to accept that the contract is as they agreed, or would he probably still be wondering where the hellthe hidden clause he wrote went and thus have potentially realized that the Solar used some kind of magic to edit the contract? ("Okay, the slave thing was pretty slick. Can't believe I let her talk me into that. But I know the bit about the salt gods was right here on page seven...")
Stunts are a good way to deal with this ("Oh, and I subtly altered the wording of the salt god clause so that it would never hold up in court.")

As long as I'm asking odd questions about written social attacks...does Flashing Quill Atemi work on, say, words engraved in stone, or does it only work on things written in ink and such?
It's not limited by medium.

Assuming it's doable at all, how does FQA's target-altering apply to things like Graven Stone Edict (which can only be used to target an organization in which the Dragon-Blood holds authority)? If a Solar comes along to adjust the stone monument's text, will the result still only affect an organization led by the Terrestrial? Or must the Solar, when she changes the edict's intended target, focus on an organization she leads instead (as if she were the one activating FQA)?
I'd allow either.

A single range band fall doesn't cause any damage.

Two questions on beastmen battle groups.

1. I can't find any rule against 6 dot merits but I also can't find any examples of them, so is command 6 (Size 5, elite troops, elite drill, might 1) supposed to be a thing or not?
It's not a thing.

2. Should 6 dots of beastman mutations be applied to the troop stats, or is that covered by Might 1?
They have mutations, although for some it's not worth tracking. Vulturefolk archers are gonna want to have Wings, but it's probably not gonna come up that your goatfolk lancers have Iron Stomachs.

Uncertain Sky Ambiguity is a special Instill action that counts the target as having a Major intimacy of uncertainty for the scene.

After that scene, do they have
A)a Minor intimacy (because it was an Instill) of uncertainty? (Which may be eroded as usual)
B)No intimacy, and they realise they were correct after all?
C)No intimacy, but neither do they automatically realise they were correct? However, as the charm has ended, they might just decide they were correct after all, have someone/thing easily point out they were right, etc?
D) Something else.
C.

Also, as it's an Instill, I assume you can spend WP to resist as normal?
Yep. 10char

I'd be very interested in seeing how its mechanics translate into 3e.
I think it depends on whether we have a good idea for it.

Dragon-Blooded Exaltations don't ever exist beyond the life of the Exalt, as other Exaltations do, but that's not to say a Storyteller can't play around if they have a fun idea.

Nah. Just because Brides of Ahlat get a way to train aurochs in it without needing special Charms doesn't mean it's not a magical ability.
