Does anyone still have the Zombie apocalypse hack for this game that appeared on the old Story Games forum? All the ritual phrases were reworked with genre-appropriate dialog, and I always thought it would work really well. We are thinking about playing a game of stock Polaris over Discord, and there is some interest in all the variants, including the time-travel hack as well.
Polaris: Chivalric Tragedy At Utmost North
A downloadable game
In the center of the world, the Mistake festers like a forgotten apology, belching out demons onto the earth and a sickly white white vapor into the sky. In everything you do: Dance, sing, love, and war, it haunts your vision, a stain upon the perfect empyrean, the mark of the sun upon the ice.
Once, there would have been no need for Knights, when the sky was dark and perfect, the starlight pure and cold, and the people without fear or flaw. But that time is over now, and the call for Knights has never been greater, for there is only one order, your order, the Knights Stellar, that stand opposed between the remnants of the people and the demons that would devour them.
Polaris: Chivalric Tragedy at Utmost North, is a unique role-playing game, often imitated by never recaptured. The entire game is framed and played through use of specific key phrases, used where other games use cards, dice, or ability scores. It requires no GM or centralized planning, instead dividing those responsibilities between the players. In all, the game takes about 12-40 hours to play to conclusion, split up in 3-8 nights of play.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $10 USD. You will get access to the following files:

Been fascinated by this for years, finally organising a game of it.
