Polaris is a roleplaying game about the dying days of the people, about how their bravest knights struggled against the Mistaken and their sun while the very people they defended choked themselves in their own self-indulgence.
The very center of a Polaris story is the set of protagonists, usually one for each player. The dictionary defines protagonists as the main characters of a story and also as the initiators of great things. Protagonists in Polaris are both of these things and more. Every scene must center around a single protagonist, and that protagonist’s decisions will shape the fate of the people, the world, and herself. Protagonists are the heart of the Polaris game, and each one is defined by her name, themes, values, and cosmos.
