“Your eyes will betray you.”

– common saying among followers of The Word

Torture is unreliable for interrogations – the afflicted party will simply say whatever they think will stop the torture, regardless of truth. Truth spells and truth potions are also flawed – they may prevent the afflicted party from telling lies, but by no means do they compel speech; they are easily thwarted by one’s ability to remain silent. The Confessors, innovators that they are, have elegantly resolved this conundrum by combining the best of both techniques.
