I'm currently playing a game of Polaris that has been going on for about six sessions. Our protagonists are all deep into their various plots, two of us are veterans, and we're getting towards the end. One tendency I've noticed in our group is that some of the players, when acting as Mistaken, like to take one or both of the Moons out of the room, or pass notes to each other, all to discuss what should happen to the Heart. Then the Mistaken and the Moon(s) act in tandem to steer towards this fate. My question here is twofold:
Should information about the direction of the story ever be kept secret from the game table at large?
Should the Moons be consciously working together with the Mistaken, or independently pursuing the goals of the characters in their section of the cosmos?
Answers should either be based on published statements from the designer or actual Polaris play experience.
