[Polaris] An Aspect

What I was writing the other day.

Technique: Song of Truth

Description: When you sing, it is a glorious song, and right in the eyes of the empyrean. Lies have no power before your tune -- indiscretions are admitted, betrayals exposed, and disguises torn off like ragged flesh. When you are done, no falsehood remains.

How it might aid you: You must root out a web of lies and corruption. You are called before a senate committee on false charges. Your superior has become corrupt. Your father finally tells you how your mother died.

How it might hinder you: Even you cannot resist your own song. Your wife tells you that she loves another. They blame you and not those that told the lies. You accidentally expose a tactical deception in the midst of battle. You discover that your entire life has been a carefully crafted illusion.

Special Rules: When the Heart invokes this ability, they must sing, at least a note.

I only have a fannish thing to say: every tidbit of Polaris I see makes me smile. I am really looking forward to it.
