How does Thunderclap Rush Attack interact with Disengage?

If an enemy successfully disengages, can I immediately TRA and attack them?

Or does their reflex movement from the disengage keep them out of harm's way?.
Their reflexive movement lets them move back as soon as you Thunderclap Rush towards them.

Wait, I thought they were tied to the elements of life and death?
The Liminal Aspects are Blood, Breath, Flesh, Marrow, and Soil. None of those are elements.

How happy would it make you to know how much I adore the direction you're taking the Dragonblooded in this edition?
The positive response to the Dragon-Blooded previews has been making my day. Thank you for your kind words. ^_^

Resurrecting the dead is beyond the capability of even Solar Medicine. You're free to ignore that and make a Charm that does it if your playgroup wants to, but that sort of effect won't appear in published material.

So, are Liminals going to have Auras and Signature Charms, being the other Element Aspected Exalt type, or will you be doing something else with them? This is, of course, theoretical since they won't be coming out for quite a time.
Liminal Aspects aren't tied to elements.

The Elemental Aura and Signature Charms are unique to Dragon-Blooded.

Correct - healing a health level clears it completely.

You can do that, or something similar, but transplanting someone's soul into a new body=/=recreating the original person. There may not be a total loss of identity, but the recovery is not complete enough to completely undo the sting of death.

Solar Resistance's approach, as embodied in Unbreakable Warrior's Mastery, is to simply not lose a body part at all. Being able to slowly regrow a lost limb is more within the purview of Solar Medicine, while rapidly regenerating a lost limb is something I see as a signature Lunar trick.

But you lose a point of initiative just for the atack overcoming your defence.
As Lanaya said, you don't lose the Initiative your attacker gains for hitting you.

Adamant Skin Technique allows me to use Stamina + armor soak to resist decisive damage. So if i have stamina 5 and bronze skin, all i can use if 5?
Correct. Invulnerable Skin of Bronze and other magic that adds non-armor soak don't count towards your total with Adamant Skin Technique.

One or the other - the sword doesn't count as an independent "character" for purposes of AoE effects generally.

What happens when you have a magical bonus, like the blessing of an ancestor ghost, when you are something without excellencies, and such, without dice caps?

For example, I am the perfectly mortal and human Morning Dew Maiden. CanĀ“t I receive a blessing of my dead great great grandma so I can better protect our family estate against these evil bastards of the Rumidal Clan?
Mortals can benefit from Charm-added bonus dice. While it's unlikely they would have access to enough sources to require a dice limit, the Storyteller should feel free to impose a cap if needed to prevent chicanery.

1. Is it possible to use sorcery in the underworld?
Yep. Sorcery can be used in any realm of existence.

2. Is it possible to bring items that were created in the underworld (crops, wood, etc.) into creation, or would these fade away in the sunlight?
I think the Underworld is a more interesting place if it offers treasures and resources that can be brought back into Creation, although certain things may still perish on exposure to sunlight.

3. Is there anything hindering a daring merchant to bring goods (like clothing), in greater quantities into the underworld, where garments normally fetch a much higher price? (besides the undead themselves)
They won't encounter any metaphysical laws that make it impossible, although such a venture is going to likely be extremely fraught with difficulties.

4. Can mortals sustain themselves with crops/fruits/water from the underworld? What about a tyrant lizard, is there enough game to hunt?
The flora and fauna of a shadowland offer the same amount of sustenance regardless of whether they're currently facing Creation or the Underworld. Past their boundaries, it may be possible to forage for food with a difficult Survival roll. I have trouble imagining their being enough readily accessible meat to maintain a tyrant lizard's diet; you'd likely need a creative solution like importing it from Creation, striking a deal with a ghost-merchant, or something else.

5. How much does the Immaculate Order know about the Underworld, or more precisely, a mortal priest/monk without a specialized background?
I think the big point is that the Underworld is the abode of those souls who cling to attachment to life instead of allowing themselves to be reincarnated in accordance with the proper order of things. Any more specific details, well, that's what Lore rolls are for.

Up to the Storyteller. They might want to keep the fact that the person is dead a secret for the moment, in which case Infallible Messenger isn't really an appropriate tool to uncover that secret. Alternatively, they might use it as a way to dramatically reveal that the recipient has died.

It's hard for me to answer this, because my personal process begins by writing the substance of a Charm, and then figuring out what Essence rating it belongs at. I never sit down to write an Essence 4 Charm, which makes it difficult to advise others on how to design things that way.

Your own Merits, no. Magical stuff like the blessing of an ancestor ghost, yes.
