Granted, but if you don’t have Appearance favored, would the suggested Int based version be reasonable? I know the charm isn’t totemic in Intelligence by default, but it feels appropriate to me for Int to have its own “Create a Spirit” charm and this seemed like a simple solution.
It doesn't strike me as unreasonable for Lunar Intelligence to be able to create spirits in ways like that.

Very curious about 'em.
You can ask, although I may not be able to get into all the details.

All that matters is the shape you're in when you use this Charm.

I feel like this might have been asked before somewhere but I couldn’t find it, so I’ll just ask: would a hypothetical Int based reskin of Moon-In-Well Emanation to create a spirit from your shadow and requiring Shadow-Hands Invocation instead of Mirror Slip Trick be a reasonable Lunar charm?
I'd be more inclined to make it just an alternate way of having Mirror-in-Well Emanation work, but that's mostly in the interest of not requiring players to juggle the book-keeping involved in having a magic sentient reflection and a magic sentient shadow.

How does Elusive Dream Defense work with regard to your dice caps? If its boost to Guile counts as Charm dice (as it doesn't say it doesn't), and I've got Resolve 5, Guile 5, and have already committed to Guarded Thoughts Meditation to get Guile 8, would it not be better to spend the 2m on Shadow Over Day to get Guile 10 and get the 2m back from Preeminent Gala Knife if I succeed?
It's a bonus from Charms, just like everything that says it's not. Sometimes you won't have Guarded Thoughts Meditation up.

Hello, thanks for your help.

The Lunar Perception charm Argent Goddess Eye grants motes to the Lunar, but not more than were spent. If the Lunar is using Fivefold Transcendent Insight and benefiting from the 2 mote discount on all perception charms, is it possible to gain motes even though none were actually spent as they were discounted?

Thank you.
No, you can't get back more motes than you actually spent.

So No Moon and Twilight using their anima power can accidentally kill or trap themselves by teleporting into a magical lava pool or a temple surrounded by the Wyld Hunt? I'm curious if this is a thing that can never happen, or it can but the ST shouldn't use it on the PC without the player's consent?
I think it's fair to assume that the Twilight anima power won't transport you to a spot that you are incapable of surviving in, like one that's submerged in liquid-hot magma. Stuff like "there's a Wyld Hunt camped out at this temple," though, that's just a risk you assume when you roll the dice on that.

The No Moon anima power doesn't teleport you; it just gives you a sense of direction to a place of power.

I think raccoons are probably closer to a cat than a capybara.

​Any new details about Hearteaters?
They've had a lot of real cool stuff articulated as the Charm set's been written, but it's difficult to address specifics at this point in time.

Crosspost from Ask A Question thread, in case this is a better fit for the question.

Stormwind Rider says this about it as a Control Spell:

Her vertical leaps are buoyed by wind, allowing her to leap upward a single range band as her movement action; she can do so up to (Stamina) times before needing to rest.

How long is "needing to rest"? Is that a Turn, a Scene, or a Day?
It's getting a good night's sleep; I'm not sure why I didn't make that clearer.

Thanks for the help
Yep, it does.

Sorry of asking twice here today but I had a few more question from my last session

1) When a PC/character is crashed and has to wait three turns to reset. Does the round in which there where crashed count into that??

Only thing a could find on the subject was this https://www.reddit.com/r/exalted/com...ound_counting/ but it gave no clean answer.
I read it as "your turn has to come up in the Initiative order three times over three rounds, and then the next time your turn comes up you reset."

2) I have seen some where that you can't be initaitve break*ed (broken?) on the turn in which you resets and the following turn after that. The first thing I know is true, but is it true about the following turn?
Not quite - you can still be crashed in the round that you reset, but if you're crashed in that round or the one after, your enemy doesn't get the five-point Initiative bonus for crashing someone (aka the Initiative Break).

3) Does the PC reset at the start of the third turn, at the start of the following turn? or at their on tick?
When their turn comes up, not at the start of the round.

I'm sure we're a long way off from any books going into detail on the Jadeborn, but have there been any conclusions about their portrayal in 3e?
Yes.

Are they still fighting all kinds of weird darkbrood things deep underground?
There are still horrors that dwell in the depths, but it's not going to be the vast existential threat that required the Jadeborn to be constantly devoted to fending off the monsters so they wouldn't have any impact on Creation that it was in 2E.

Do they still have the artisan/warrior/worker caste system, or the enlightened/un-enlightened distinction?
Haven't discussed those details.

I have a question regarding Ox-Stunning Blow, falling hammer strike, and creatures of legendary size. Normal size characters normally don’t inflict onslaught on legendary size, Would falling hammer strike allow the penalty from an ox stunning blow to stay on a legendary size creature? Technically the onslaught still refreshes, but presumably it has to have some in order for it to refresh. Alternatively does OSB just not work on legendary size creatures because they don’t incur onslaught to begin with? (Barring being in a warstrider)
Ox-Stunning Blow still inflicts its penalty even if your attack doesn't inflict an onslaught penalty, and Falling Hammer Strike will likewise delay an enemy's onslaught refresh regardless of whether he currently has any penalty.

Short answer: the combo works.

Followup, would it be broken to make a solar charm that does allow a solar to inflict onslaught onto a legendary size opponent? I figure it wouldn’t be at the end of the day, but never hurts to get dev input on such a thing.
I think that'd be fine.

I have tried looking for this be could not find a answer.

Is it possible to make mixed clash attacks? so withering versus decisive? Or withering/decisive versus gambits?
Yes.

Does clash attacks take up a combat action (I think yes, but it never hurts to ask).
Yes, unless you're using Charms or other magic that lets you make them without counting as your combat action.
