XX" redirect and everything.
    Kes has a full QC write-up in Chapter 10.

    • In the Fajad preview, the commander of the Realm's garrison troops is a Mnemon woman, but the satrapy itself is Cathak-controlled. Is that a "leftover" Imperial garrison assigned by the Empress and not yet broken up / privatized by the Great Houses? Do Mnemon and Cathak have some kind of power-sharing agreement in Fajad? Is Mnemon Senesh married into House Cathak? (I remember something saying that same-sex marriages are now legal in the Realm, but nothing indicating which House the couple would end up loyal to in an inter-house same-sex marriage, since the usual "the wife's House" default doesn't quite work there.)

        I believe that's the only place it's presented.

          The Empress always assigned a garrison commander from a different house than the satrap and her garrison. This is covered in more detail in The Realm.

          • What happens if an exalt succesfully uses fulminating word while attempting to overturn influence on a target who has no wp? They can't spend the 2 WP to resist the new influence, or the 1 WP to overturn the old influence.

              In the time between the Nellens death, and the rise of House Nellens as a Great House, did it exist as a Patrician House?

              • If a twiligth is trying to make a First Age Artifact would each working made for that artifact trigger a Solar exp gain?

                  Sure, to the normal max of 1/session.

                    If a character has no Willpower, any influence affecting them can't be overturned.

                    • When the corebook sorcery section said 'immortality', do they mean Greek god immortality, or eternal youth?

                      • Do the Elemental Dragons ever visit Yu-Shan? Do they or have they taken a turn at the Games of Divinity?

                          Not being able to die of old age.

                            It seems very unlikely, but who knows?

                              Oh.

                              ​I just now started off with an image of one of the Dragons having tried to visit Yu-Shan once, but getting stick in the door in what was intended to be humorous, but then I started imagining the Dragon to be crying, and it's made me very sad.


                              I have approximate knowledge of many things.

                                Will this or the Yamabushi tradition ever get additional coverage anywhere in the book or in a future supplement? I'm intrigued by the prospects of giving the Shogunate a more material presence in the setting than earlier editions.

                                Also, huge Tepet fan. Anything that sets them apart is very much appreciated.

                                Like spiritually appreciated. It's an old technique of mine.
