    Caulborn so rarely leave the Caul that I don't think there'd be any coherent stereotypes about them.


    That'll likely be addressed in the Caul material in the final manuscript of Fangs at the Gate.


    Probably nothing happens; the Caul's Essence is attuned specifically to Lunars and Dragon-Blooded. But an individual Storyteller should definitely change this if appropriate to their game.


    Assuming we get a chance to discuss Nir-Netari in later canonical material, she's intended to be a ghost, so she couldn't have any Exigents. If you want her...

    Yeah. We need to let backers finish reporting issues; go through the compiled issues to see what needs implementing; send a corrected PDF to Onyx Path; wait for a new version of the PDF to come back to us; go back and forth with confirming corrections until the proof is clean; and then Onyx Path needs to approve the revised PDF and send it out. This takes a while....

    It's discussed. The numbers usually come to around 40-60 Dragon-Blooded. (The excess are less likely to be talonlords and more likely to be staff officers, seconds-in-command, and specialists such as sorcerers. And it's not that rare for a dragon to have a mortal winglord, especially now that the Great Houses have replaced outcaste senior officers with house appointees.)...

    It's unlikely that any out-of-house spouses were ever promoted to the rank of general, but the occasional out-of-house dragonlord would have been plausible. But the specifics of whether barriers to promotion were were official or unofficial, and where those barriers stood, is something to resolve at your table based on the needs of relevant PC and NPC backstories....

    A spirit shape, like any other shape, is specific. Your wolf spirit shape is a specific wolf; you can't turn into a different wolf as your "spirit shape," let alone turn into a dog and say it's your spirit shape because they're both canines. This is the same as any other shape; you can't perform a sacred hunt on some random dude and then use that shape to turn into the Empress because they're both human shapes, and you can't perform a sacred hunt on a chimpanzee and use that shape to turn into a gorilla or orangutan.

    (And I don't think "stuck with" is fair phrasing;...

    The current system is that books for Exalt types (Dragon-Blooded, Lunars, etc.) get Kickstarters. Other books, such as the Storyteller's Guide, do not....

    Either I'm still not understanding your question correctly, or your understanding of the situation is incorrect. We do not write stretch goal material ahead of time. We didn't write up Sublime Danger in advance and then "bank" her for the Lunars Kickstarter companion volume; she hasn't been written up yet.

    A single Exigent write-up, even with a really bare-bones Charm set, is significantly larger than a normal stretch goal. If we're able to do it, it'll involve spacing out stretch goals more widely than usual to compensate. E.g., instead of getting one stretch goal when...

    I tend to assume something like 60% of the house's associated Aspect and 10% of each other Aspect, but this will vary by house and household. (I'm considering the possibility of a sidebar on the subject in Heirs for houses and gentes and so forth, but Storytellers might be better off being free to decide for themselves? I'm undecided.)...

    The Imperial courts address cases involving all citizens, not just Dynasts. And the magistrates are primarily investigators; their authority does overlap with the Imperial courts, but they don't just go out and preempt Dynastic civil cases or situations where the Imperial Force has already brought a Dynast before the courts. (Well, they could, and on rare occasions they probably do. But they generally have better uses for their time.)...
