"Average Deathlord between Essence 8-10" factoid actualy just statistical error. Average Deathlord Essence 1. Creation-Slaying Oblivion Georg, who lives in a manse and gains 10,000 dots of Essence per day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.

Solar Awareness. Honing his vision to pierce the skies, the Solar's visual range when scanning the skies is extended to an extreme degree, unhindered by harsh sunlight or stormclouds alike. Provides hefty bonuses when combating aerial enemies from the ground, or a lower vantage point, and is probably useful in piloting a skyship.

Next: Wolves Among Sheep Guardianship or Anchor-Shattering Launch.

I don't ahve a clue what the canon will be for 3rd, either.
I suspect that it will not be discussed at all, but that actually coming up with rules for a lost host of Exalted from the war of the gods will be much easier to do on your own, especially with the Exigent book.

No, I mean the "REDACTED NEW MECHANIC" from the last showing of Contacts. Holden's commentary implied it was something reminiscent of 9-again.
It ended up being too strong to make available through Merits.

So in your interpretation, can a Vat Complex in Autochthonia exist off the Noetic network, and thus allow for Charms that are secret technology not shared between with other nations, or perhaps by the theopoli? Obviously there would be the drawback of not being able to teleport ones charms to other complexes, but that seems a small price to pay for secret weapons.
Secret Charm technology should be possible insofar as the Storyteller is interested in running an industrial espionage game and the characters are interested in playing it. Rather than having them simply not be part of the vats network, I would have nations developing encrypted noetic armories which could then be infiltrated/hacked by agents of enemy nations.

I was looking fora some advice - which (if any) celestial martial arts would best resemble escrima fighting with sticks?

I was thinking of just using solar hero style and calling it a day? But is there something that might be better?
I think "Solar Hero, treat fighting sticks as form weapons, stunt some things appropriately" is the best you're going to get.

I know in late 2nd edition a lot of people thought their ability to come back from Ghost Eating Technique was bullshit, but to me it's what makes a Deathlord a Deathlord as oppose to an Abyssal elder or a ghostly monarch like The Sovereign of Chains.
"And the Silver Prince's secret weakness is...this rock!"

I tried to sell Eric on bubble tea being a thing that exists in Creation, but alas, it is far too modern.

Once you have seen an Evocation, you will immediately understand why they cannot be replicated through native Solar Charms. They're just...totally two different dogs. One day is a master swordsman on the level of Zatoichi, Kenshin Himura, or Cloud Strife. The other dog goes woof and triggers a massive explosion of lava. That kind of dogs.

This would be the Malfeas High School shard (although I'd rather draw my magical high school combat oeuvre from Utena than Kill la Kill).

At some point I should tell a story involving a human-sized hamster wheel, an airship, a Solar physician on hand, and the cursed city of Denandsor.

Sidereal Stealth. Untethering the thread of his destiny from the bounds of space, the Sidereal may compress it infinitely to find concealment within the most unlikely of places—the space between a teacup's bottom and the warm liquid that fills it, between the pages of a book, or behind a blinking eye. Unfolding to reveal one's self from this stealth is generally too wonky to make a sneak attack, but it delivers a substantial advantage Joining Battle upon ambushing an enemy.

New Charms: Black Star Zodiac (can't be a Underworld Sidereal thing) or The Beginning is the End

I could see reasons for such Charms and places where they could exist, but the existence of sorcery consigns them to nichedom unless they are doing something else important on top of that. I don't think Solars, the masters of sorcery, would have them. Lunars...I could see an argument for, I guess?
