Long Xuan Empire was not the only one who had the barren land as a reward, in several great countries in Radiance Continent, they also had the same tournament and reward.
Among so many champions, many had appointed some elites of a city and entered the forbidden area with a great deal of manpower and resources, but after thousands of years, only three people had really managed to be stationed there.
It was inconceivable how frightening this "reward" was.
Apart from the great families in various countries, almost no one dared to put their thoughts on the barren land.
Only those super-rich great families dared to smash a lot of gold coins in such a desolate land and expand their own forces.
In Long Xuan Empire, there were only a handful of families capable to have such courage.
Azure Dragon, White Tiger, Vermillion Bird, Black Tortoise, and Qilin, for these five great clans it was naturally a cinch. And aside from them, there were also three or four more influential families in Long Xuan Empire who had such level of background.
As for the others...
They did not dare think about it.
Of course, if there really was a student with no background but had the ability to beat the crowd and win the championship, there would be countless of forces to extend their olive branch in support of the student's journey to the barren land.
In the barren land, only three cities belonged to mankind, and one of the City Lord was the champion of the Divine Wind Alliance school tournament of the past. He was an unknown individual born from a civilian family, but with his extraordinary talent, he had defeated all the opponents and won the championship, and finally got the support of one of the four powerful mercenary corps of Divine Wind Alliance. After smashing countless gold coins and deploying thousands of mercenaries, finally, he successfully reclaimed their own piece of heaven and earth in the barren land.
The other two City Lords in the barren land was from Lan Yue Dynasty and Seven Kingdoms.
Only Long Xuan Empire had nothing.
Seeing that the other three major countries had laid a foundation in the barren land, Long Xuan Empire Emperor had long been unable to sit still. He was always looking forward to having such a young talent that could raise up the flag of Long Xuan Empire in the barren land!
As time passed, the huge venue was already crowded with people.
Each school was gathered in the same place, dressed in their school uniform with their school badge hanging on their chest, fearing that others would not know what school they were from.
The influential families who came searching for a talent were now also seated. The five great clans did not send people to watch the school tournament this season. And aside from the Vermillion Bird Clan's, the young masters of the other four clans had won the qualifications to participate in the school tournament.
As for why there was no one participating from the Vermillion Bird Clan, this was a thing worth gossipping about.
However, the people watching the lively activity today were apparently not interested in the gossip about the five great clans; the only thing they wanted to know was who would win the championship this season. One must know that because all the champions of the previous school tournaments of Long Xuan Empire had successively failed to open up a territory in the barren land, the current ruling Emperor had promised that as long as the winning student was willing to go, he would be given unconditional financial assistance by Long Xuan Empire while opening up a territory in the barren land.
Such a huge sum would truly make people envious!
