Thanks. By the Fang Lakes, do you mean Mela's Fangs?
Mela's Fangs are the peninsulas; the Fang Lakes are the bodies of water between them,

Hmmm, it'll definitely be interesting getting both sides, and the Caul description we got today is nicely weird. I liked the crusader-party town on stilts.
But my friend was confused by the walls, which are decaying, even though the ground keeps things pristine? Are the walls raised as well somehow?
The walls aren't in the city, they're around the city. I guess? It's all very occult.

Where is Iscomay exactly? One part says northwest tundra, another says northeast. And even the northeast is very large.
Sounds like you found a typo. It's in the Northeast, just south of the Fang Lakes.

Are these monks not really Immaculates then?
They aren't Immaculates at all. "Monk" isn't an Immaculate-exclusive concept in Creation.

Many Faced Moon explicitly forbids duplicating a specific person. Is it ok to push against that limit a bit or is it better to just say no if someone tries to get around the spirit of the charm?

Like, can I use it to turn myself into a tall, commanding red haired woman and try to convince a threshold village that I was the Scarlet Empress or is that shenanigans?
I don't see how that would be shenanigans? You're not actually physically disguised as the Empress. It's no different than not using any disguise at all and claiming to be the Empress, only with less of an implausibility penalty.

Does Creation use imperial, metric, or another system of weights and measurements? Would the Realm use something like shìzhì, so I could order three liǎng of nails that are two Chi in length from a Realm blacksmith?
Creation is chock full of idiosyncratic measuring systems. Its cultures don't use imperial or metric measurements in much the same way that no one in Creation speaks English. In the text, we provide information in imperial units because most readers (especially the core American player base) are familiar with them.

Hokay, by the statement and punctuation at the the beginning of the quoted edit, am i to understand that there in fact will be art tiers in later kickstarters available?
We don't have any direct control over the specifics of Exalted Kickstarter campaigns, but it is very likely that we will be able to have art-based backer tiers in future Exalted Kickstarter campaigns.

I know the fangs at the gate KS Campaign started only 14 days ago, but I'm looking real hard at tryining to squeeze my twilights image into one of the next, wha? 5? Kickstarter book campaigns? Just wondering how long we would be looking at till the next funding session to know how to budget
We can't give any kind of solid schedule for future Kickstarters, but our intention is to have each one about a year after the last one.

EDIT: Ignore my previous note down here; all the art pieces are indeed gone, though it's possible one may open up again if a backer switches to a different reward tier later.

The new fiction references Cannons in reference to a naval battle. Are these Stream Cannons, the Harbor Cannons referenced in 1E, or a more piratey ship to ship cannon?
Shore cannons, as per 1e and Arms of the Chosen.

We haven't started work on Exigents yet. So barring unforeseen circumstances, it will come after all of the aforementioned books, all of which are already at some stage or other of development.

We're thinking softbacks, although this is subject to change.

Can i ask how long the expected time table is for this? That is the time between each product.
No idea. The specifics are above our pay grade, and OPP has had problems in the past when a publicly provided timetable slips due to unforeseen circumstances.

To change the subject from Lunars for a moment, I know the schedule of splat books, but is there a schedule more generally?

Dragonblood: What Fire Has Wrought I assume is next.

And I assume after that it's the Realm? Or Heirs to the Shogunate? One, then the other?

And then... Across the Eight Directions? Or is that scheduled after Lunars?

Or are splatbooks and non-splatbooks on completely different schedules? So that all you can say is Across the Eight Directions is scheduled after the Realm, but it has no relation to Lunars?
Barring unforeseen circumstances, I expect actual publication order (based on the order we're developing them in) to be Dragon-Blooded, The Realm, Lunars, Heirs to the Shogunate, Across the Eight Directions.

Pardon, is that a FLAT no period, or a No in regards to the Debt Face Charm, thus Dragon Kings are viable targets through a standard Sacred Hunt, or perhaps like in 2e where you needed a special Knack to perform a Sacred Hunt on a Demon?
It's a flat no.

We sent the chapter fiction along to Onyx Path; it's up to them to determine when and how it's going to be previewed.

It's being divvied up into lots of smaller chunks this time around.
