Whoops, it can be hard to keep track of what's been spoiled and what hasn't. So yes, they're the Sovereigns of [REDACTED].

Ah, okay thanks.

Are the other example Exigents like that too, or are they more specific examples? Ie is it Strawmaiden Janest, or Strawmaidens generally?
Strawmaiden Janest and the illicit Exigent are both presented as specific examples of unique Exigents (although players are encouraged to use the chargen rules to replace those individuals with a new Strawmaiden/Strawlad or [REDACTED] in their games). The Architects and the [REDACTED] are both presented more as general Exigent types, though you'll find specific examples elsewhere — whether Revana Quin in the core book, or the homeland of the [REDACTED] in Across the Eight Directions.

Exigents will present the Architects as a complete (albeit narrow) Exalt type and provide the tools to produce your own Architect from the city of your choice. (Revana Quin will return from the core book for the chapter fiction.)

I'm guessing that's the black market Exigent.
That's one of the gods associated with the last Exigent write-up in the book.

Vance said you guys weren't going to use the "Dirty Bomb" terminology, as it's confusing and anachronistic. What's a better way to describe that kind of Exigent?
We're still finalizing the terminology, but on the table are expressions like "unstable Exigent" or "accursed Exigent."

Vance and Minton, IIRC the Architects will be Attribute-based. Now we're getting closer (I mean, not really close, but closer) to the publication of Exigents, are you willing to reveal either a)what kind of stat the other 3 example Exigents are based on, or, more exciting, b)besides a city and field god, who (or what kind of) the god(s) of the other two Exigents are?
I don't think we're quite ready to discuss Karana, Cantata-of-the-Depths, and [REDACTED] yet.

The descriptions of how each style tends to use its unarmed attacks are more of a flavor thing than an obligatory restriction.

With a threaten roll, you're not limited in what you can try to make the target do, as long as it makes since for the threat you're bringing into play to back it up. "Run away before I kill you," "surrender so I don't have to kill you," and the like are all possibilities, depending on the intent of the player making the roll.

Being able to change your apparent age via shapeshifting is not the same thing as extending your lifespan.

Does a Lunar's true shape age naturally over their lifespan? For instance, would a true shape of a child grow into an adult over the millennia?
Yeah.

They would still have the Great Curse.

Yes.

If you did, would both count as the same "instant" for the purposes of achieving another level of anima banner? Or are they treated as two separate reflexive actions, and thus separate instances?
Same instant, as they both trigger off the same thing.

If you needed to disengage to use Become the Wave, and spent motes on Threshold-Warding Stance, would those two expenses be happening in the same instant?
Yeah.

Would motes spent on a grappling gambit, a control roll, and a savaging/throwing attack all count as the same instant, or separate instances?
If they're such that you declare them all at the same time, same instant. If you declare some at different times, different instants.


If you spend your turn on a Simple-type Charm that isn't an attack, do you still have "your attack for the turn" for effects that spend such a thing?
You can't use a Simple-type power up Charm and then attack on the same turn. If you have a Charm that lets you reflexively attack but uses up your attack for the round, then you could use the Simple-type power up and then use the Reflexive attack.

Not exactly the scenario I had in mind.

Here goes:

-Doug Dodge starts his turn at close range to Athletics Allison. He makes and wins a disengage roll, and moves out to short range.

-On Athletics Allison's turn, she uses her action to make a decisive attack against Doug, supplementing it with thunderbolt attack prana. This enables her to jump to close range with Doug to attack him.

What happens in this case?

Doug gets his reflexive move and ends up outside of Allison's range.

For clarity:

You don't see any problem with one duelist allowing the other duelist to leave close range without a disengage action?

Or you don't see any problem with one duelist spending their turn attempting and failing a Disengage action, and only then letting the other duelist allow them to leave close range with a reflexive Move action, despite the disengage action counting as their movement action for the turn?
I don't see a problem with either, although in my game I'd probably ask that players stick to doing it before making rolls to keep things moving on along quickly.

When a siege engine's artillerist aims, reloads, or attacks, that uses up the crew's whole action for the round.

Vivacious Dragon Beauty has the Aura keyword, so it can only be activated in Aura, but it has a duration of One Scene. So, if a DB does a bit of dancing, adds a die or two to go into Wood Aura then activates VDB to gain +1 Appearance, will that appearance bonus last for the rest of the scene, even if the DB switches Auras?
Correct. Charms that end when you leave the appropriate Aura will have their duration listed as "Aura."
