The Sia Continent was a mysterious place filled with transcendental powers and phantasmal creatures. It was very different from the modern world in his previous life, where money made the world go round. Here the influence of money was greatly reduced.
That being said, money was still money. It might not bring happiness, but the lack of it was almost certain to bring misery. He could say this for certain because of his experiences in his previous life.
So, when Roel saw the beautiful golden mountains glimmering enticingly under the gentle rays of the morning sun, he suddenly felt like swooning. It was as if his unfulfilled first love had suddenly knocked on his door.
