Polaris Teaser #5: On The Mistake

While many stories about the Mistake, no one among the people knows the truth. The histories, if there ever were histories, have been lost and, although the libraries list books on the subject, they are filled only with ashes and not with words.

While no one knows the truth, everyone knows that before the Mistake, their city was perfect, their sky was dark, and the people had no fear, and that, afterwards, their city was left a smoking crater, their sky was lit by the brilliant sun and haunted by a ghostly moon, and the people had learned horror, terror, and ten thousand other ravages of time.

Such knowledge cannot be born without some excuse, some meaning, some explanation. And so it is that the people have made their own stories of how it came to pass.

The more I see of Polaris, the more interested I get.

Do I even need to write that I'm intrigued about Polaris anymore?

Will I be able to score a copy of it at Gen Con?
