Will Exigents go in detail on how exactly the Celestial Bureaucracy works, like how a god's purviews is attached to job, how they get and are assigned to those jobs and how they can lose them and what that would be like, and other stuff like that? I'm wondering since the concept of divinity in Exalted in regards to everything below the Incarna is a little bit hard to grasp.
We hope to provide more detail on the Celestial Bureaucracy in Sidereals.

Ahlat is still the Southern god of cattle, as per Exalted Third Edition, p. 514.

We have no release dates for any of them. (Release dates have been an issue for 3e, and we'd prefer not to give out any date that we can't be absolutely sure of.)

Exigents will be sufficiently overstuffed that we won't have room, aside from specific character elements like Strawmaiden Janest's artifact scythe.

They have literally never been detailed before outside of 'they exist,' after all - even the 2e Mountain Folk material ignored them entirely in favor of the various directional cities of the Mountain Folk.
The Realm mentions those Mountain Folk in passing, but doesn't provide any solid information. That will have to wait for some later book!

A) How common are earthquakes in the Blessed Isle?
Rare enough to be remarkable, but they do happen. Recent earthquakes are mentioned in The Realm.

B) So is it a design choice for this edition to not focus in on the First Age as it was explored in the previous editions and just leave it more vague and nonessential?
Yes.

I ask this since this seems to be the feeling I got after reading through your guys answers relating to First Age stuff. I'm fine with that since the games premise is in the Times of Tumult not in the history of an age lost past. It's just I often found First Age stuff to be more relevant important in making Solar stories since they don't have a cultural background to interact with like the DBs Realm, the Lunar's Silver Pact, or the Sidereal Yu Shan, since while the Solars can pretty much do anything they wish to I always want to tie them back to a larger culture for them not to be so generic, despite that is a way to describe a Solar. So yeah what I'm asking is that while the First Age is gonna be referenced time and time again given it's important, I shouldn't expect a book that will just be about the First Age like it was in the past. Is that a correct assumption to make?
We don't intend on putting out a book covering the First Age. It's not something we plan to focus on, as we find that it tends to draw attention away from the events of actual play in the Age of Sorrows. Likewise, while groups are free to make First Age memories central to play in their chronicle, it's not going to hold a major role in canonical material.

Also note that 3e's First Age is intended to cover a broad range of societies and cultures, rather than the relatively static monoculture of 2e portrayals. So you're free to make up not only your own First Age at your table, but each Solar's First Age memories may present a very different picture of what First Age life and society was like.

I've been trying to really visualize the North and was wondering, what real life biome or geographic region would the Near North be the most similar to. Seems like it would be Taiga, but from the map doesn't seem to be all that forested. The Far North is labeled as a Tundra, but I'm sure at least part of that is more similar to Antarctica. I'd just like to have a better handle on it for my descriptions of the land.
A variety of highland, continental, and boreal climates, ranging to polar in high-altitude inland areas.

Current plan is to include information on Yu-Shan in the Sidereals book, although that's subject to change.

It's possible that the surviving Foxfires will turn up in print at some point. No idea what book, though.

And if so, do you have any idea on which possible splat is likely?
They probably aren't Exalts.

Our primary resources for the Lintha remain Blood and Salt and Scavenger Sons, within the framework of their presentation in the 3e core book. (We'll also dial back on specific discussion of their First Age history.)

We don't currently have any plans to publish resources for playing games set during the First Age.

Wow. That is a major reduction. Does the alteration of Harborhead from a vast Savannah to a fairly narrow paninsula have any major implications for its culture or government, or for that matter it’s environment?

I am not saying that it should change or that it necessitates change, but it does effectively cut the landmass down a ton and double the coastline at minimum, and that seems like a big deal for such a populous place.

For that matter, where is Bent Creek these days?
We don't have any current plans for further exploring Harborhead in Third Edition, so I'm afraid that we don't have any answers for those questions. Feel free to handle it however best fits your intentions and desires for the material.

As per What Fire Has Wrought, the specifics of such an allotment would be at the Storyteller's discretion.

Got a setting question regarding the kingdom of Harborhead, I see that the capitol Kirighast is stil located where it used to be, but it appears the great savanah and jungles have been replaced by huge lakes. Is the "great weld" of Harborhead that the Ex3 discription mention located between the lakes and to the south of them? I'm asking because houses of the bull god is a great setting and it would be a shame to lose it. Personally I don't mind the lakes I just want a clarification.
Harborhead is smaller in 3e, and occupies the 500-mile-long peninsula west of the lake region; assuming it encompasses that entire territory, it looks to be about the size of England.
