    Yes.

    Are they still fighting all kinds of weird darkbrood things deep underground?
    There are still horrors that dwell in the depths, but it's not going to be the vast existential threat that required the Jadeborn to be constantly devoted to fending off the monsters so they wouldn't have any impact on Creation that it was in 2E.

    Do they still have the artisan/warrior/worker caste system, or the enlightened/un-enlightened distinction?
    Haven't discussed those details.

      Sorry of asking twice here today but I had a few more question from my last session

      1) When a PC/character is crashed and has to wait three turns to reset. Does the round in which there where crashed count into that??

      Only thing a could find on the subject was this https://www.reddit.com/r/exalted/com...ound_counting/ but it gave no clean answer.
      I read it as "your turn has to come up in the Initiative order three times over three rounds, and then the next time your turn comes up you reset."

      2) I have seen some where that you can't be initaitve break*ed (broken?) on the turn in which you resets and the following turn after that. The first thing I know is true, but is it true about the following turn?
      Not quite - you can still be crashed in the round that you reset, but if you're crashed in that round or the one after, your enemy doesn't get the five-point Initiative bonus for crashing someone (aka the Initiative Break).

      3) Does the PC reset at the start of the third turn, at the start of the following turn? or at their on tick?
      When their turn comes up, not at the start of the round.

        Thanks for the help
        Yep, it does.

        • Crosspost from Ask A Question thread, in case this is a better fit for the question.

          Stormwind Rider says this about it as a Control Spell:

          Her vertical leaps are buoyed by wind, allowing her to leap upward a single range band as her movement action; she can do so up to (Stamina) times before needing to rest.

          How long is "needing to rest"? Is that a Turn, a Scene, or a Day?

            It's getting a good night's sleep; I'm not sure why I didn't make that clearer.

            • If I needed Raccoon stats in a hurry, which existing animal statblock would probably be the best place to start? The modified “large rodent” statblock after Mouse/Rat?

                This is why getting a good night's sleep is important!

                ​Any new details about Hearteaters?

                  They've had a lot of real cool stuff articulated as the Charm set's been written, but it's difficult to address specifics at this point in time.

                    I think raccoons are probably closer to a cat than a capybara.

                    • So No Moon and Twilight using their anima power can accidentally kill or trap themselves by teleporting into a magical lava pool or a temple surrounded by the Wyld Hunt? I'm curious if this is a thing that can never happen, or it can but the ST shouldn't use it on the PC without the player's consent?

                        I think it's fair to assume that the Twilight anima power won't transport you to a spot that you are incapable of surviving in, like one that's submerged in liquid-hot magma. Stuff like "there's a Wyld Hunt camped out at this temple," though, that's just a risk you assume when you roll the dice on that.

                        The No Moon anima power doesn't teleport you; it just gives you a sense of direction to a place of power.

                        • Hello, thanks for your help.

                          The Lunar Perception charm Argent Goddess Eye grants motes to the Lunar, but not more than were spent. If the Lunar is using Fivefold Transcendent Insight and benefiting from the 2 mote discount on all perception charms, is it possible to gain motes even though none were actually spent as they were discounted?

                          Thank you.

                            No, you can't get back more motes than you actually spent.

                            • What happens to the Protean effect of Lightning-Calling Challenge if the Lunar changes to a shape which the target doesn't hate?

                              • I feel like this might have been asked before somewhere but I couldn’t find it, so I’ll just ask: would a hypothetical Int based reskin of Moon-In-Well Emanation to create a spirit from your shadow and requiring Shadow-Hands Invocation instead of Mirror Slip Trick be a reasonable Lunar charm?
