A man ran inside and shouted, “Those who want to sign up for the Toman Battlefield, hurry and go! l just received a piece of news just now. This time, the battlefield is going to open for the last time within the next two months! The next time you want to sign up, you’ll have to wait a little longer!”
The moment that was said, an uproar occurred inside the inn.
The Toman Battlefield would not be open for another two months after this one!
No one had heard of this before, so why did the rules suddenly change?
Everyone started to wonder if the information was genuine, but right after that, more warriors with the same piece of news came in, spreading it around. Those who were wondering if the news was falsified hurriedly dispelled their doubts.
After hearing that, the man with the unibrow’s face froze.
His lips twitched, feeling something very off about the situation, but he could not say anything about it.
What he said earlier was already an exception. Any more than that, and it would be as good as exposing the secret.
The man with the unibrow took a deep sigh as he stared at the square-faced man. His companion had a frustrated look on his face as he looked at the crowd before turning to look back at him hesitantly.
The square-faced man coughed and returned to his seat, looking at the man with the unibrow earnestly.
He said seriously, “Do you know something?”
The man with the unibrow frowned and shook his head with a stern expression. “I don’t know anything. l just said that because I feel like something is wrong. I’d advise you to think before you do anything. Those warriors at the peak are incredibly selfish; there’s no way they’ll actually want to help us. Even if nothing happens today, something will happen eventually. Don’t forget, the Radiant Hall still isn’t open!”
Everyone knew that the Radiant Hall had very valuable things inside that could change a warrior’s fate. Even though no one knew about the specifics of what was inside, no matter what, once someone entered the Radiant Hall, their talents would soar.
They could become a warrior who stood at the peak, even if they were a regular warrior before this. It was something that made everyone‘s eyes reddened with greed.
No longer would they be ridiculed and looked down upon; they would be hailed and revered! This was something every regular warrior wished for. It was not just one person that would be able to do that, either.
There have been past examples for everyone to see. Even those at the peak looked at it greedily. They wanted to improve themselves as well. Even if they could not drastically improve themselves, it was fine as long as they could take one small step forward.
However, it was no easy task opening the Radiant Hall.
They needed large amounts of Heartblood, and collecting this was not easy. Countless battles had broken out because of it, and warriors from third-grade worlds had been tortured to death for it. They needed to be alive when the Heartblood was extracted, so it was an unbelievably cruel thing.
A person’s Heartblood would increase the more fear they felt, so they would often be subjected to cruel methods as their Heartblood was extracted while they were tortured alive.
Because the methods were so cruel, they caused an intense backlash. Wars between worlds even happened, and the warriors from second-grade worlds lost a lot as well.
Jagoan had witnessed many battles that erupted because of Heartblood, and many had died because of it. However, for those warriors that stood at the peak, it did not matter how many died as long as they could gather enough Heartblood.
