A Truthsayer.

Truthsayers are not native to the Old World – they are exiles from an island home sealed beyond a wall of magical mist. They live as hermits, preserving the sorceries of their ancient land through ritual and ceremony, waiting for the promised day when the mists will rise and they can return home once more.[2a]


It is rare to knowingly encounter one of the reclusive Truthsayers, for they are naturally suspicious of all that walks on two legs. Being masters of natural magic, Truthsayers are able to shapeshift into beasts of all sizes. Thus do they avoid unwelcome company: by evasion in the form of a hawk, or by bloodshed in the form of a raging Dragon. Yet if the Truthsayers themselves are seldom encountered, the same cannot be said of their domains, which are scattered through the wilderness. In such remote places, even the lowest beasts show glimmerings of intelligence and the vegetation grows wilder, stronger and hungrier than it ought.[2a]

When a storm of magic occurs, the Truthsayers steal away from their hillside hermitages and seek out allies. Only with aid can they hope to marshal enough magical power to undo the spells of shrouding that conceal their homeland. Driven by this desperation, many a Truthsayer has found himself battling alongside unsavoury allies, harnessing his mastery of Jade Magic to a destructive cause. The goal on these occasions is to work a greater good by committing a small evil, but with every step along this path, the reclamation of their home becomes an ever more distant dream. Only a Truthsayer of purest actions has any hope of annulling the shroud of mists, and in such matters there can be no such thing as a minor taint.[2a]
