Many years later, the adventurers were chosen to be the guardians of the priestess during the ritual of hope. It was their job to escort, and protect her while she traveled to the ancient temple. Things did not turn out as planned. After arriving at the temple, the players were ambushed and the priestess sacrificed herself to save the adventurers, using the ritual knife. Somehow, this caused magical abilities to awaken in the adventurers, something that hadn’t occurred in Sundara for countless years.
