​And if not, why not?
It's probably going to remain, because it's iconic and fun, but we haven't actually started sketching out the Sidereal Charm set yet; Exigents come first.

Nothing canonical comes to mind offhand, but there's nothing in the setting indicating that earth elementals are less inclined to humanlike shapes than other elementals.

Ah, so in my true human form I can't apply the protean benefit of Adder Fang Method to my poisonous fangs, but I could apply it when in the form of a dog, bird, or a different human form?
Correct. 10char

Great to hear!
Is Violet similar in theme to previous depictions? Or is it a bit newer?
If you can say of course
We're drawing from the original version, but I think its theme could be given a more cohesive presentation.

If you transform into an animal with mutations, can the mutations qualify you for protean benefits?
A mutation can qualify you. Tells are largely aesthetic, but if tied to a mutation, can qualify you. Note that none of this bypasses the restriction on not accessing Protean effects in your true human form.

Yes.

f so, are the calculations handled in the normal fashion (Dex + Brawl to hit, 10 base + Str for Damage?)
Yeah, it'd be just like attacking with a light artifact weapon while in human form.

Just reflexive.

I might of missed this earlier, but is there going to be more information on the Realm's restriction on mortal explloration of the West, and thet ransition to Wu-Jian as the main route there? The Realm book says that it happened in the last century, but the satrapy seems to have been a known location for a few?
The West was hard to access because the prevailing winds and currents hadn't been well-charted, and the routes were obstructed by monsters, hostile spirit courts, and the like. Daring Exalted heroes were able to bring ships to and from the West despite these obstructions. It was a century ago that the Realm charted and cleared some trade lanes to the point that mortal crews could reliably make the journey. We may spell this out more clearly in Eight Directions if word count allows.
