The Eye of Autochthon does get a mention in Arms of the Chosen, though not an actual entry.

Does arms have any old artifacts updated in it?
Most of the artifacts are new, but there are a handful of old ones in there.

Is the Eye of hesiah in there? Or should I search in later books?
I'm not sure what artifact you're talking about here?

Were any of the artifacts in Arms created in the current Second Age? Were any artifacts created by beings who weren't Solars, Lunars, Abyssals, Sidereals, Dragon Blooded or Spirits?
Yes and yes.

Are Evocations set once they have been unlocked? If an Exalt makes a daiklaive and unlocks power X, and a hundred years later the daiklaive has a new owner, would that new owner unlock the same power X, or a new power Y more in tune with his own personality and relationship with the blade?
The latter. (And it doesn't have to be a hundred years.)

We didn't reference him in Dragon-Blooded or The Realm (at least, not to my recollection), but he's still knocking around the setting and might reappear in later material. Whether or not there are any changes to his presentation won't be decided until we're actually working on him for publication.

If after 15 years of wait, papa DB and mama DB have a child that doesnt exalt, was that because the essence wasnt passed down to the child and you can have another before the recommended 12 years, or was it a lost opportunity?
Lost opportunity. Expending one's progenitive Essence does not guarantee the child's Exaltation; it merely improves the odds.

(Also, in your scenario, it's already been 15 years, and thus more than enough time to have another child. Progenitive Essence is spent and starts replenishing after one's child is conceived, not after one's child Exalts.)

How long has Parsaad been a part of the Realm?
The Burano and Ophris legions conquered Prasad a little over six hundred years ago.

Also, what's the oldest age you think is reasonable for an outcaste Dragonblood to exalt? Is mid-20s too old?
Almost no one Exalts past age seventeen or so, and no one on record past twenty has ever Exalted.

Have you given any thought at all to how you're going to approach Autochthonia's decidedly more technological approach to artifacts? A lot of the stuff they consider mundane would probably be reserved for first age wonder-hood in Creation.
Not yet; Autochthonia and the Alchemicals are a long way off and are pretty detached from other setting considerations. There's a lot of other stuff that relates to games set in Creation which we need to focus on first.

(I'm looking for stuff to show to a prospective new player for my seafaring game.)
I haven't looked deeply into how we might fiddle with such things for 3e. You can probably still rely on Savage Seas for most purposes.

Does Zhaojun resemble any of Earth’s cultures? I’m doing research for some friends running a game in and around Goldenseal. Any hints on the region would be greatly appreciated.
Zhaojun takes much of its cultural inspiration from Malaysia, though its overarching historical situation also takes some inspiration from al-Andalus. Most of the material from my 3e playtest game set in Zhaojun still applies.

Are there many spells in What Fire Has Wrought?
Ten spells, if I recall correctly.

And is Sworn Brotherhood's Oath (or I guess, Sworn Kinship's Oath now) still one of them?
Establishing a Sworn Kinship no longer requires sorcery.

Proofreading is only finished when the proofreader says the text is error-free, because sometimes inputting corrections is incomplete or results in new errors.

Yes; a couple are mentioned in The Realm, and hopefully we'll be able to explore such systems in greater detail in later books.

Clan Burano is currently one of the two ruling clans of Prasad, so the family is doing reasonably well for itself.
