They live in an age when the faithful are being suppressed.
They try to use their influence to change things, but in the end, the men of Angelos are forced to flee rather than surrender to tyranny.
They take refuge in a cave outside town and fall asleep out of exhaustion.
The next day or so they wake up in an entirely different era.
