The Wizard apprentice turned around and walked to the other side of the obelisk.
Angele hesitated for a second then followed him.
They arrived at a large empty ground covered by vibrant green grass.
He saw several other people waiting there already. There were five of them, three light Wizards and two Wizard apprentices. They were brought here by other Wizard apprentices from Six Ring High Tower.
The Wizard apprentices were chatting with those people, trying the best to lighten up the mood here.
Angele followed after Ivan. He glared at the three formal Wizards quickly.
There were two female Wizards and one male Wizard.
The two female Wizards stood close to each other, giving the impression that they were friends. Their white robes were tightened up by belts, Angele walked closer and realized the two were probably sisters. Their faces looked identical with sun tanned skin and they all had dark red curly hair.
The male Wizard was having a conversation with the female Wizard apprentice that led him here. He was checking the girl’s body out while talking. Although the man had an average-looking face, his blonde shiny hair still caught some attention.
The girl looked clean and pretty, but it seemed like she was having trouble dealing with the talkative Wizard.
Angele waited for a while after reaching the grassy ground.
Two more Wizards were brought here by the Wizard apprentices and all the people here were outsiders.
The one on the left was a thin man with a goatee and the one on the right was a middle-aged woman with a depressed look on her face. They were all wearing green robes that shared the same patterns. It seemed like they were from the same organization. Angele still had not figured out what the green robes represented yet.
After everyone arrived, a young man with red hair walked to the front.
“Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. I’m a year 1 apprentice from the Six Ring College. I’m in charge of explaining how to use the tower to you.”
He wasted no time and showed how to properly release the mentality wave. Also, he mentioned the specific wave channel and a simple application of energy particles required to activate the tower.
The young man demonstrated the necessary steps and walked away after.
The other Wizard apprentices started to explain the available services to the people they brought here.
“If you need a few resources or knowledge, you can get them from the trading tower. However, if you need a larger number of items, you can ask me to do it for you. I’ll hire trusted companies to transport them to you. The fee I’ll ask for won’t be too high. Also…not sure if you’re interested, I can also connect you with the girls…female apprentices and female Knights…A formal Wizard like you will be attractive to them.” Ivan turned to Angele and said, “You know, this is the land of Wizards, the richest area on the west coast. We’re the ones with the most power. If you have enough money, we can even get you the beauties from other races.”
Angele was not interested in the girls, but he wanted to know more about this area.
“Let’s exchange our communication runes then,” he spoke in a light tone.
Ivan chuckled, quickly drew a complicated rune in the air, and pushed it forward.
Angele raised his right hand and the rune sank into his palm.
“Also, I think you’ll need a place to stay, right? I can find you one in the forest,” Ivan added.
“I’ll talk to you later.” Angele nodded. “I need to check out the trading tower first.”
“For sure.” Ivan bowed and walked away.
Angele turned around and walked to the obelisk. He found a gap between the Wizards around the tower and put his palms against on its surface.
Strange noise echoed in his ears.
A strong mentality wave stroke Angele’s body. The wave was weak and slow, and would not inflict any damage to a formal Wizard.
Angele then released his own mentality wave. However, the wave from the tower was not making any contact with his.
He recalled the wave channel the young man mentioned and modified his wave slightly.
Suddenly, a huge information screen appeared on the surface of the obelisk. Rows of trade information were listed on it.
Angele glanced around making sure that he was the only one reading the screen, and nodded slightly.
‘Golden Ring Flower, 25 grams, looking to trade for Armored Beetles.
The blood of snake pterosaur, 30 grams, looking to trade for two tons of bronze.
Maragas lion’s egg, meet up and discuss the details.
Eyeball of a hundred-eyed ghost, looking to trade for the essence of a magic ore.
Information flooded the whole screen.
Angele noticed a button at the bottom of the screen that was used for turning the pages.
There were more than a thousand pages and each page listed more than 100 different trading information.
He started thinking; his utmost priority was to obtain the heart of the tree and the formula to help increase his mentality. These two items were extremely hard to find. Isabel had asked her family to search the heart for him, but he still needed to acquire the formula by himself.
Angele kept turning the pages.
‘I hope I can filter it to formula only…’ he thought.
Suddenly, the screen blurred and white light flashed at its edges.
Quickly, the page number reduced to two pages and the view became clear again.
Trade information about the formulas was left on the screen.
‘Original formula of the Giant Potion, looking to trade for a thousand-eyed spider.
Original formula of the Burning Blood, looking to trade for a heart of the earth.
Copy of the Arcane Potion, looking to trade for liquid gold, the amount can be discussed later.
Pages of high-level potion, Dragonize Potion, meet up and discuss.’
Angele checked the names of the formulas carefully.
The newer listed formulas would be at the top. There were many potions he had never heard of. Only several of them could help him increase mentality. He spent about half an hour to figure out which ones might be helpful.
The first one was Oasman’s Enhancement. The owner was asking for a phoenix flower.
The phoenix flower was hard to procure. It usually grew deep in the molten magma. Angele had no idea where he could find one.
The other one was named the Illusionary Garden and the owner was asking for a live three-headed bird. It was a much easier requirement to fulfill, but the three-headed bird was an aggressive creature. The bird was about ten meters long and was the king of the sky. Angele was not sure how dangerous the bird was, but from what he read in the book, the creature was capable of slaying a formal Wizard. He was only a Gas stage Wizard and not sure if it was worth a try.
From the more than two hundred different formulas, he only found two potions that would help increase his mentality.
Angele was a bit speechless. He pursed his lips and decided to search for something else.
‘Show me cursed weapons.’
The screen blurred again.
Several seconds later, filtered information showed up.
‘Calatrava Cross Greatsword. Two-meter attack range. Poison damage. Can damage spirits. Looking to trade for cursed dual short swords.
Cursed weapon crafting. Must provide materials. Looking for two icy butterflies.
Blueprint for the Speedy Knives. Looking to trade for 1.3 kilograms of Dragon Scale Flower.’
Angele stopped there realizing how valuable cursed weapons were. Kuirman’s cursed scimitar probably was much more expensive than he had thought. Just a blueprint could already be traded for more than one kilogram of Dragon Scale Flower.
One Dragon Scale Flower was about 20 grams and this guy was asking for 1.3 kilograms.
Angele was impressed by the convenience of the trading system in the area, but people were asking for rare resources as if they were easy to find.
He decided to search for the information related to enchantment after checking the weapons and the formulas.
Angele checked the descriptions and found a book named as Fire Enchantment of the Giants, but the owner requested a meetup.
He pressed on the row with the book using his finger carefully.
The information was zoomed in and the introduction of the item appeared on the bottom of the page.
About ten minutes later, a different mentality wave appeared on the information.
Angele closed his eyes and modified the wave channel again.
“You want my book, Fire Enchantment of the Giants, right?” A deep male voice was transmitted into Angele’s ears.
“Yes. What are you asking for?” Angele responded.
“Magic stone cards, rare materials, potions, anything, as long as they are valuable. Now tell me, what can you offer?”
“How about the formula of the Ghost Voice?”
“Ghost Voice? Interesting. Sure, what location will work for you? I’m not giving you the physical copy, we can just use the orbs. Ghost Voice is an ancient formula, it’s probably worth more than my book, I’ll add something else to the trade to make it fairer for you,” the man responded politely.
“We can meet up on the first day of next month. Name the location.”
“Sure, just come to this obelisk,” Angele responded.
The two agreed on the location and time and described their appearances before cutting off the communication.
Angele lowered his hands, opened his eyes, and walked to the other side of the obelisk.
Ivan was politely waiting on the side.
“Master, do you want to check the residential areas?”
“I have many places to recommend, we can go check them out now if you have the time.”
“Sure, lead the way.”
Angele nodded and left the obelisk with Ivan.
After about three hours, Angele picked a two-story house built beside a small lake.
The house was painted in white with a red roof. In front of the house itself, there was a garden surrounded by fences. The whole place was hidden in the forest.
“Good choice. A Wizard who loves quiet places built this house a long time ago. He sold it to my family before leaving the area,” Ivan introduced the history of the house as he opened the fence gate.
The place was covered in tall grasses. Even the path connecting the gate with the house was blocked.
The two entered the house and Ivan showed Angele the rooms.
“The place is good enough, I’ll take it.” Angele made the decision. “Also, get me a map of the Six Ring area, the place is huge.”
“Sure,” Ivan responded politely.
“Two healing potions for the house, right?” Angele took out two small glass tubes with green liquid inside.
“Of course, that’s more than enough.” Ivan smiled. He grabbed the two potions Angele was handing over to him, opened the stoppers and checked if they were real.
“From now on, you’re the owner of this house. A low-level magic circle was set up by the gate that’ll prevent insects from entering the garden. It’s a nice and cozy place. Also, you can ask me for daily supplies, I’ll ask workers to deliver them to you as soon as possible.”
“Umm…” Ivan hesitated for a second. “Actually, there are many other Wizards living around here. I hope you’ll get along with them.”
“Great, I’ll stop bothering you then.” Ivan bowed to Angele. “Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything. I and my family will try our best to fulfill your request. The only thing you need to do is to message me using the communication rune.”
Ivan left right after finishing his words. After about 30 minutes, a young rank 1 Wizard apprentice knocked on the door and told him that she was in charge of delivering him the daily supplies.
This girl was the ‘worker’ Ivan talked about. Her talent level was low and she started meditating a bit too late. Angele doubted if she had the ability to advance to the next rank.
Angele stayed in the house and studied the cursed scimitar he acquired from Kuirman. Also, he wanted to know what exactly happened to the signet. He went to the trading tower several times but did not find any newly listed formulas.
After Ivan sent him the map, he sent Isabel his location using the communication rune.
Angele needed some time to check the items he had acquired in the ruin. In addition to that, he finally had the time to modify the older spell models. With the mentality compression techniques, it would not be a problem to him.
