That's a very broad question, but the answer's yes.

Hi there, super excited for the Dragon Blooded and Realm books, all the preview stuff I've read looks really great.

One question and sorry if this has been asked already in the mega thread; do you have any plans to incorporate the Creation Ruling Mandate rules for organisations (or anything similar) in say the Storytellers guide or other books?

I'm rereading Masters of Jade and its a really great book. I thought those rules might be useful especially for a Dynast game.
Not the Creation-Ruling Mandate system exactly, but maybe something in a similar vein.

I've looked through the Antagonists chapter in the Core, and noted that none of the things in the Creatures of the Wyld section have charms with the Eclipse keyword. My question is, is this intentional? Are the charms of the Fair Folk (and other Wyld stuff) not supposed to be something that Eclipses can learn? Or is just an accident of which Wyld creatures got into the Core, and we might see Wyld creatures with Eclipse-keyworded charms in future stuff, and it's okay to put it on our homebrew?
Fae can have Eclipse Charms. There are some examples you'll see in upcoming monthly releases.

I'm gonna say it's close enough to rain to count for Cloud-Piercing Focus.

It's a Charm.

I assume that this edition knacks are just charms. Is that correct? And are they in seperate trees from other charms, or mixed in together?
Yep. Some things that were formerly Knacks are set off under the "Heart's Blood" category of Charms each Attribute has; others are mixed in.

Actual question about Sorcerous Workings and Demesnes. In the book under the Demesne Merit entry it says:

The demesne can also be used as a Means for sorcerous workings which resonate with its nature (pgs. 487-488), granting one extra interval.

What does "nature" mean in this context?

Is it a synonym for "aspect" (Solar, Lunar, Sidereal, Fire, Water, ect.)?

Is it a parallel for Ambition Categories (Solar, Celestial, Terrestrial)?

Or is is it more narrative then that? Like "my Demesne is a vast forest of singing hollow trees that is surrounded by a dome of stars at night where it is easier to perform astrological rituals, so all Sorcerous Workings involving these themes have an extra means when performed in this Demesne."
It's a holistic combination of the demesne's aspect and the Thing That The Demesne Is in the world of the game, like your last example.

Some were written for the Antagonists section, but I believe they were cut from the final draft. I wouldn't be surprised if some have already shown up in Hundred Devils Night Parade or Adversaries of the Righteous.

The former.

Have you decided if this power would be permanent or temporary? My full moon may go on a gourmet tour looking for gods.
You can nab it permanently if you're willing to spend XP.

Nah. 10char

So like what? It's not a keyword used anywhere in the core. What charms/spells or antagonist abilities count as shaping effects?
"I turn you into a cat" is the iconic shaping effect. As things that are shaping effects get published, they'll call themselves out as such.

Centuries ago, the abhuman sorceress Aiun employed the legendary Eye of Autochthon to raise a continent from the Northwestern ocean as a homeland for her people. As is traditional in stories involving the Eye of Autochthon, things did not turn out well in the end.

For Six-Demon Scabbard BInding is the "hostile magic" specifically just shaping/fate-altering attacks or the like, or is it any magic attack that that alters your body or mind that isn't resolved as a regular attack or regular social influence? The similar text in Phoenix Renewal Tactics demands the effect has 'no clear defense' but Six-Demon Scabbard Binding does not.
It's gotta be a shaping effect.

Could you clash Corrupted Words with it? Hypnotic Tongue Technique?
No.

So Vance, what are Protean charms generally speaking?
They gain enhancements while you're in certain animal or human shapes.

For a given value of comparable, yeah.
