Defending Hope Plot 1.mp3
 Viridya led the mortals to the City called Hope not only because it was a powerful symbol of rebirth, but because it was home to the two soulstones; mighty shrines created by mortals ages past in remembrance of the Giant War. Within them was said to slumber the wrath of a million spirits. Viridya hoped they would wake when the time was right.
— The Aedai Chronicles

Viridya watched them stream into the city. A trail of humans, winterling elves, even some kobolds, the mortal peoples of the north. All had found their way here, shepherded by the Skylords. The cursed ones would not be far behind, it was just a matter of getting enough of them here to make her plan work.

Viridya found her thoughts returning to the mortal, Rogan Kayle. His group was still missing. She would need to guide him and already knew which of the Skylords she would ask to stay behind and mount the first part of the defense. Not all had the resolve to defy Brannoc’s orders and not all would be able to act swiftly enough to make her plan work. Viridya would have prayed, were there any gods left to hear her.


Defending Hope Conclusion 1.mp3
 The soulstones had awakened, just as Viridya had hoped. But, though the stones’ fury had brought victory, they had been unable to destroy the infection completely. The curse was vast, it gripped the entire world and one did not have to be wise to know a far greater power was needed if the mortal realm was to be cleansed. Though the struggle for Hope was over, a new one began in Viridya's soul.

Viridya trembled with both triumph and frustration. The trap had worked, but as the soulstones’ light subsided she saw how little had been achieved.

Something far more potent was needed if the curse was to be wiped from the land. With Brannoc absent searching for the gods and the Skylords divided, she felt doubt slide like a cold breeze through her heart. It was up to her. For a moment she considered telling the others the truth, but this would simply complicate matters. Viridya knew she needed to become more in order to finally be herself. And now she knew how.
