Angele did not want to comment on Fono’s ‘highest praise’ that was commonly used in his hometown, but he also did not want to gain two strong enemies just because of that.
He explained why the girl was enraged to Fono and decided to keep a distance from him. Angele did not want to be caught in the crossfire again.
The man that had just entered the hall started explaining the situation in front of everyone.
“I don’t care which area you came from. I don’t care how strong your background is. Here in the central continent, you’re just a weak rank 1 wizard!” The man glanced around. Everyone lowered their heads to avoid eye contact with him.
“I think you already learned the rules of our organization, so first you need to make your choice and sign the contract.” The man waved his hands and a pile of black leather papers appeared from nowhere.
The paper was tied with a red string and black smoke was rising from it.
“Check the contract and read the duties listed on it. If you don’t want to sign it, you can return to your division. Ask if you have any questions.”
He threw the paper pile into the air.
The pile of black leather papers separated in the air and accurately flew to the seated wizards.
Angele watched a black paper noiselessly land on the table in front of him. He took it and started checking the information.
Everything was written in Metia.
The requirements were straightforward. The member must accept one mission provided by the organization every two years and the missions must be completed on time. For the potion masters and the enchantment masters, they needed to provide their services to the members at an 80% discount. Furthermore, if the organization was in a perilous situation, the signee would be summoned.
The organization would find a suitable role for its members in the society. The members also had the privilege to post missions in the organization, but they needed to provide the rewards themselves. A second mission could only be posted when the first one was taken.
Angele checked the contract and confirmed there was no trap in any form, so he signed it right away.
About ten minutes later, the wizards finished signing their contracts, and the leather papers flew back to the man’s hand quickly. He checked the contracts carefully and put them into a bag.
“Next, you need to pick a normal organization to join so no one knows that you’re working for us.” He waved his right hand and dozens of objects appeared in the air.
Angele raised his hand and saw dozens of different items floating in the air. All the items were surrounded by black glows.
“Those are badges of other organizations,” a wizard beside Fono muttered.
‘That’s it!’ Henn’s suddenly screamed in Angele’s ear. ‘Remember the deal we had? I’ll give you the advanced meditation technique if you can do one thing for me.”
‘Of course.’ Angele glanced around. The atmosphere in the hall was getting heavy for some reason.
The wizards in the hall all stared at the badges in the air. They already knew which organization they wanted to join.
‘Join the Elemental Hand, that’s my request.’ Henn calmed down.
‘Elemental Hand? Is it your organization?’
‘It’s my friend’s organization. The organization has begun losing its power after I died, but it’s still a much better choice compared the small organizations around the border. You won’t regret it,’ Henn responded.
‘Is that so? No offense but I think you’re hiding something from me. Which badge represents the Elemental Hand?’
‘The silver ball-shaped one.’
Angele observed the badges in the air carefully.
He found the silver ball mentioned by Henn. It was on the right end. The ball was silver; it had the size of a small orange. Runes and flower patterns were engraved on its surface.
There were three silver balls which indicated they were only accepting three wizards.
The other organizations had also provided at least three badges.
The man with goatee looked satisfied when he saw all the wizards staring at the badges they wanted.
“Alright, I have something else to take care of. I’ll be back in 20 minutes. Use your time wisely and make your decisions fast.”
“I thought you’ll arrange it for us based on our skill levels,” A female wizard with a crisp voice stood up and said. The lady was wearing a long green robe, her face concealed with the hood. “If there are not enough badges for an organization we all want to join, we’ll have to fight. Potion masters will be at a disadvantage.”
“This time I’m the leader so you need to follow my decisions. Power will grant you privileges in this world. Only the weak talks about fairness all day. If you can win a fight against me, I’ll give you the right to pick first.” The man narrowed his eyes and responded in a calm tone.
“You!” The female wizard wanted to say something else but was stopped by her friend.
“I’ll give you some advice before you make your decision,” The man glanced around and spoke slowly, “The strongest organization’s badge is located right in the middle. Weak ones are on the side.”
He turned around and stepped out of the hall. His loud footsteps echoed in the hallway.
“Let’s go!” a wizard shouted.
Suddenly, several red shadows jumped to the badges in the air.
At the same time, a green arrow, a black snake with translucent wings, and a long bloody hand flew toward the badges.
The hall was in complete chaos.
A ball of green flame exploded in the air.
The impact of the explosion made the floor shake.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes.
He began to analyze the spells cast he was witnessing. Most of them could do over 60 degrees of damage. There were even several strong spells that could deal almost 100 degrees of damage.
The badges were blown away by the impact but were not damaged in any way.
Angele stayed focused. He strengthened the metal barrier on his skin, then he lowered his body and moved to the corner. The only thing that mattered to him was the badge of the Elemental Hand.
Fono was doing the same thing as Angele. He lowered his body beside the way and created a red energy barrier while moving slowly, searching for the badge he wanted.
Angele quickly leaped away.
A man in black smashed onto the floor right in front of him.
Several brown wooden chairs and tables were destroyed.
The man struggled for several seconds before he stood up again. He quickly formed a ball of dark energy on his right palm and jumped into the air again.
Countless red runes appeared on the walls in the hall which absorbed most of the excess energy to prevent the inn from being damaged.
Cold sweat was dripping down Angele’s chin.
He checked the dark energy ball on that man’s palm. Apparently, it could deal over 98 degrees of damage upon direct contact.
Such power could easily destroy his metal force shield and even kill him within seconds.
‘Watch out! Coming from your right!’ Henn suddenly warned.
Angele hesitated for a second before he’d leaped to the left.
A high-pitched noise came from the location he was standing at.
A translucent energy ball soared into the air, turning into a vortex, then it disappeared after several seconds.
Angele’s face turned pale. He asked Zero to analyze the power of the translucent energy ball right away.
’72 degrees…I’ll be severely wounded if I take that hit. My force shield and the biochip did not even see it coming…’
Angele checked the trail of the translucent ball and realized that the situation in the hall had changed.
Most of the wizards were fighting in the center of the hall.
The battlefield was divided into three areas.
An old man with white hair was fighting against a female wizard in a red dress for a diamond-shaped badge. He was wearing a white swordsman suit.
The pure energy strikes coming from their forcefields destroyed every object around them. They were both close-combat wizards and their weapons were infused with different elements. The energy shields around their bodies could block at least 100 degrees of damage.
The twins in black robes and a male wizard that dressed like a barbarian were fighting against a handsome man in a noble suit. The man had a blank expression on his face, holding a white wooden wand. White laser beams were being emitted from the tip of the wand. Angele saw some black bats protecting the man from being damaged by the spells. It looked like the man held the upper hand as they continued fighting for a book-shaped badge.
The last area was in chaos. More than ten translucent energy balls were flying around several wizards. They were trying their best to support the energy barriers, but the situation was getting worse. The energy ball that almost hit Angele came from this area, but he was not sure which badge they were fighting for.
Wizards that were not aiming for the strongest organizations all stayed beside the walls and were going for the badges from weaker organizations.
Angele lowered his body and started moving again. The wizards fighting for badges right in the center were all stronger than him under normal circumstances. He had the illusion signet, but the others also had their own secret weapons.
He advanced slowly while he observed how the others fought.
Several minutes later, only the wizards in the center of the hall were still fighting. Their spells were coming from all angles and every furniture in the hall was destroyed.
