Is the idea that the bloodline of leftover children becomes weaker supposed to be baseless or not?
It's baseless.

If it is, will the final document excise all references to it weakening bloodline, particularly in the sidebar at the start of chapter 2?
Yes. If you see any additional references, please let us know.

I've always assumed it did.
That's correct; being a Solar is as much a prerequisite for learning Solar Charms as the Ability and Essence minimums.

Unspecified; it's up to the Storyteller (or to players who want to introduce a fact with Lore, if the Storyteller deems it admissible).

Dragon Blooded don't have any charms that have dual ability prerequisites like the few solars do. Is this by design or simply something you didn't find any proper use for?
Nature's Healing Bounty has Medicine and Survival prerequisites.

Does the Realm have Roman style gladiatorial sports or chariot racing as entertainment for the masses? It just crossed my mind that that's an iconic "Roman aesthetic" that I'm not aware of the being incorporated into the Realm. If not - is there any particular culture in Creation you would place colosseum scale gladitorial sports?
There are gladiatorial arenas in several of the Blessed Isle's cities.

Or can a sun blessed exalt as a lunar or an abyssal for example?
A character's heritage doesn't restrict her from Exalting.

Hmmm... under the current thought process on the subject, are such societies distinct to the Western Ocean? I’m just curious at the word choice if something different is going on in the Dreaming Sea.
The dev team has only discussed this in the context of the West. There's also stuff going on beneath the Dreaming Sea, like the Fair Folk of the Orchid Court, but it's a different environment and would probably be covered in a Dreaming Sea supplement if we get one on the schedule.

Love me some Luthe! So just putting this out there, what type of mountains would need to be moved for say in the future for Prasad to get their own region book. I know they get a good chunk of the Realm book, but I think it may be my favorite of the new locales for 5th ed and I just want to know how much of a pipe dream it is.
We've been looking into the possibility of adding a few extra-short books to the roster somewhere down the line, so a Prasad book isn't out of the question. However, we have no specific plans to put such a book on the schedule at any point.

Wait, aquatic societies? Does that mean that details on Luthe may happen?
Luthe is getting a couple of pages in Lunars: Fangs at the Gate.

How quick is the drop off in the oceans?
Probably more or less the same as with Earth's seas and oceans, unless you have a reason to do things differently at your table. We've discussed covering the aquatic societies beneath the Western oceans in some future book; if that comes to fruition, we'd address this question there.

But someone indicated to me that the writers were probably going to ignore this since it was 2nd ed. Is this true, will you ignore the bits like Blood Apes can reproduce by congealing torture Screams in favor of they are always created by greater demons or through normal breeding?
Haven't really thought about it yet. We'll figure it out when we get to a book where demon reproduction is relevant to the text.

In other words, is someone using a Belt of Shadow Walking completely invisible and immaterial, or are they visible as a shadow?
Visible as a shadow, as per the last sentence of the first paragraph in the Belt of Shadow Walking write-up (Exalted, p. 602).

We have no plans for significant coverage of Ixcoatli at present.

It won't receive any significant coverage, no.
