Legitimate business means actual legitimate business. You can't say "Fakharu sent me to audit your spirit court" and gain diplomatic immunity unless Fakharu has indeed sent you to audit that spirit court.

You can attack your host while on legitimate business. However, as stated in the last sentence of the anima power write-up, doing so voids your diplomatic immunity. Likewise, while your host cannot attack you without just cause while you have diplomatic immunity (as per the second sentence of the power write-up), the flip side of this is that if you do provide just cause, she can indeed attack you. If you're planning an assassination and your host gets wind of it before you make the attempt, that's a pretty just cause.

No; the Exigence responds only to gods.

Varies from place to place; throughout most of Creation it's only useful for ornamental purposes, and is typically less valuable than silver. Specific valuation is a matter for the needs of the scenario at hand (or fact declaration rolls).

What happens to a Lunar´s clothes, armor, and other things she is carrying when she shapeshifts into an animal? Do they vanish, or should she remove her clothes beforehand so that they don´t break when she turns into a rhino? If they don´t vanish, could Seven-Colored SIlkworm Flourish, in Changing Plumage Mastery, be used to turn the clothes into animal appropiate "clothes", like a pet collar? Mostly so they don´t break. I was thinking about it because the character I will start playing soon will tend to turn into harmless animals to spy, and I want to know if I need hidden caches of clothes around the city :P
"When a Lunar enters an animal shape, any items or equipment that she is wielding, wearing, or carrying that she can’t use in that animal’s shape are sent Elsewhere. This includes almost all artifacts, although moonsilver armor will reshape itself to accommodate any form the Lunar may take, and some other artifacts possess powers that allow them to do so. The banished items return as soon as the Lunar takes a shape that is compatible with them."

I know Heavenly Ladder style was deemed too absurd for the core Exalted experience, but would you ever consider tuning it up and releasing it on the Storyteller's Vault?
I don't plan to release anything on Storyteller's Vault. If I want to make Heaven's Ladder happen, I can just do that.

[QUOTE=Jefepato;n1340904]Can a Solar using Power-Snaring Image with Flashing Quill Atemi to change the target of social influence actually use it to turn some sort of written magic against its original user?
[quote]
Sure.

Assuming it is, would the Dragon-Blooded "victim" be compelled by DotBB's Psyche effect to accept that the contract is as they agreed, or would he probably still be wondering where the hellthe hidden clause he wrote went and thus have potentially realized that the Solar used some kind of magic to edit the contract? ("Okay, the slave thing was pretty slick. Can't believe I let her talk me into that. But I know the bit about the salt gods was right here on page seven...")
Stunts are a good way to deal with this ("Oh, and I subtly altered the wording of the salt god clause so that it would never hold up in court.")

As long as I'm asking odd questions about written social attacks...does Flashing Quill Atemi work on, say, words engraved in stone, or does it only work on things written in ink and such?
It's not limited by medium.

Assuming it's doable at all, how does FQA's target-altering apply to things like Graven Stone Edict (which can only be used to target an organization in which the Dragon-Blood holds authority)? If a Solar comes along to adjust the stone monument's text, will the result still only affect an organization led by the Terrestrial? Or must the Solar, when she changes the edict's intended target, focus on an organization she leads instead (as if she were the one activating FQA)?
I'd allow either.

A single range band fall doesn't cause any damage.

Two questions on beastmen battle groups.

1. I can't find any rule against 6 dot merits but I also can't find any examples of them, so is command 6 (Size 5, elite troops, elite drill, might 1) supposed to be a thing or not?
It's not a thing.

2. Should 6 dots of beastman mutations be applied to the troop stats, or is that covered by Might 1?
They have mutations, although for some it's not worth tracking. Vulturefolk archers are gonna want to have Wings, but it's probably not gonna come up that your goatfolk lancers have Iron Stomachs.

Uncertain Sky Ambiguity is a special Instill action that counts the target as having a Major intimacy of uncertainty for the scene.

After that scene, do they have
A)a Minor intimacy (because it was an Instill) of uncertainty? (Which may be eroded as usual)
B)No intimacy, and they realise they were correct after all?
C)No intimacy, but neither do they automatically realise they were correct? However, as the charm has ended, they might just decide they were correct after all, have someone/thing easily point out they were right, etc?
D) Something else.
C.

Also, as it's an Instill, I assume you can spend WP to resist as normal?
Yep. 10char

I'd be very interested in seeing how its mechanics translate into 3e.
I think it depends on whether we have a good idea for it.

Dragon-Blooded Exaltations don't ever exist beyond the life of the Exalt, as other Exaltations do, but that's not to say a Storyteller can't play around if they have a fun idea.

Nah. Just because Brides of Ahlat get a way to train aurochs in it without needing special Charms doesn't mean it's not a magical ability.

That's a bit more advanced than the examples given, and Flesh-Sculpting Art's magic doesn't really provide anything in the way of help with issues like transplant rejection.

They don't automatically realize they've been deceived.
