More importantly, is there any drawback to DBT that would leave me with a reason to fight in the form of lions, bears, and crocodiles (anything smaller than Legendary Size)? The War Form can at least *hold* a daiklave, whereas generally only ape forms could employ Evocations. Excepting suits of Moonsilver armor that shift to cover animal forms, or telekinetically-wielded swords like in Okami.
Yes. Creating a diverse variety of combat options is a very important design goal for Lunars.

Are the Yellow and the Yanaze Rivers the same thing?
The Yellow River and the Gray River join at Nexus to form the Yanaze.

We are not sure how to balance size and the power of the unit. We have 2 axis, from size 1 to size 5, and power equivalent to a regular soldier to power equivalent to a blood ape.
We dont know if size 1 regular soldier to size 5 blood ape is all inside celestial.
Creating an army of mortal soldiers isn't something I'd let sorcery do. You'll want to use social influence to recruit, and War to train.

Creating supernatural monsters comparable to a First Circle Demon en masse? Call that a Storyteller call between an Ambition 3 Celestial working and an Ambition 1 Solar working.

Nah.

Can you talk a little about Deadly Beastman Transformation?
It's pretty damn cool.

(I know, I know. Anything in specific you're curious about?)

Something with the stats of the behemoth form Adversaries of the Righteous can be created with Celestial 3?
Mata-Yadh is a bit more powerful than a Second Circle Demon. Probably a Solar working with Ambition 2-3.

For those of us doing home conversions of older material that won't be updated for some time (I'm looking specifically at Sidereals and Fair Folk, here), do the developers have any general guidelines for how Charms that used to rely on, affect, or be resisted by Virtues ought to be handled?
Intimacies have absorbed the role of Virtues more or less completely. I'm not sure if that's very useful for the Sidereal Charms that let you channel Virtues for really odd things, but it might help with raksha.

Something I want to just comment on with the DB previews, especially the Signature Charms, is that they show to me how Dragon-Blooded have a lot more depth to them powers wise than just benders from Avatar. Pretty big scale and pretty potent but discreet powers that allow all sorts of elemental manipulation. I quite like.

Something I am noticing though is there's a lot of keywords added here, when I remember a bit iwth 3e was trying to not get too bogged down in keyword bloat. Is this something going to happen for all Exlats or just that the elemental nature fo the DB Charmset kind of pushed towards that?
I suspect Dragon-Blooded will be an outlier in that respect. My current outline of the Lunar Charm set, for example, only has two proprietary keywords.

I'm once again incredibly excited by the DB previews. If I recall correctly, you said this was a three part series, but three releases is a long time for my tender heart to hold out without more of this sweet elemental mojo. Any chance we'll be seeing more? Maybe some of those dice adders?

Please man, I'm pretty much a junkie in need of a fix at this point.
You might be interested in the next few entries in Adversaries of the Righteous. ^_^

I'm sorry, I phrased that poorly! Just to confirm, the additional (up to 5 motes of essence) are committed by the Solar when the charm is used, and thereafter available to the prophet as long as the solar holds those motes committed? It just seemed odd it didn't specifically mention committing those additional motes, since the charm duration is instant.
Sorry, I misunderstood—the motes you transfer to your prophet aren't committed.

The Great Houses are discussed in detail in Dragon-Blooded, since detailed information on the Houses is important to designing and playing Dragon-Blooded PCs and NPCs. The Realm just has a basic outline of the houses and their situation, so you have context if you're using the book without also owning Dragon-Blooded (such as for a mortals game set on the Blessed Isle, or a Solar game set in a satrapy).
