Shrek Academy has existed for over 30,000 years. It started out as a very small and exclusive school that only accepted monsters. Shrek Academy, over time, became an independent organization, with its own city and army. It became the most respected academy in the entire Douluo Federation, producing brilliant Soul Masters. Shrek Academy is situated in the center of Shrek City which is governed by the Academy. The Inner Court is located at the top of the Eternal Tree, while the Outer Court is located at the base of the Eternal Tree and around Sea God Lake and is as large as a city. A defense array or system was installed to protect the academy from airborne attacks and prevent outsiders from entering the academy.
Every year, the academy recruits around 30 students, but most of the time, not everyone makes it to graduation. The quota for the inner court is less than ten people. Having more than ten people enter the inner court at a time is very rare.
Shrek Academy has a close bond with Tang Sect. The two can be regarded as brothers. Tang Sect Members can also become candidates for the Shrek Seven Monsters. Most Outer Court graduates join Tang Sect.
Entrance Test Edit
Every year, two rounds of tests are held to determine if a student will be able to enroll into Shrek Academy. These tests judges a student's basic qualities and potential. Most crucial was the students’ disposition.
They would test on whether a student’s willpower was strong enough and whether they prioritized kindness. These were all extremely important qualities.
Shrek cultivated soul masters into successful people. This did not only mean that they had impressive cultivation bases, but also that they were of good morals.
To qualify one has to be rank 20 by the age of 12 or rank 30 by the age of 13. The age-appropriate candidates are over one million in total. Those that actually fulfill the preliminary test requirements could easily be over 100,000 people. But they normally only take in about 30 people a year.
1st Round Edit
The 1st round of tests take place in the Douluo World on the students' planet.
2nd Round Edit
The 2nd round of tests take place inside Shrek Academy.
Blood Trial Test Edit
A test conducted in the Douluo World for enrolling Inner Court students that examines individual willpower. It is an imitation of Tang San's Hell Road trial. During the test, as one continuously defeats enemies, blood energies are leftover that invigorate the examinee and can lead to blood mania through elevated killing intent if one's personality and willpower is not firm to resist. As a small side effect, some examinees can improve or develop their martial soul abilities through the blood influence, ex: Jia Yu. There are 3 combat levels in the Blood Trial Test. First level: one boss 1-word battle armor wearing Spirit Emperor with 2 purple and 4 black rings, and second level: large crowds of Spirit Elders-Ancestors. The minimum is to pass the second level while the third level is to gain experience fighting a true Titled Douluo.
The Blood Trial Test's third level is a 3-word battle armor wearing, Spirit Domain holding, all black rings, spear wielding Titled Douluo. The 3-word battle armor domain is space imprisonment.
Duty Missions Edit
Beginning in the fourth grade Outer Court year, students are required to voluntarily conduct duty missions available in the duty center to gain experience and to be eligible for Outer Court graduation. The duty missions can be individual or group missions. Completing these missions also provide Shrek emblem remunerations throught the Exchange Center. Inner Court students also have their required duty missions to complete, some lasting over a year.
Outer Court Edit
Shrek had 6 grades. Each grade has around 30 students give or take one or two, and together they totaled about 180 students. Due to limited rich and powerful resources available, Shrek only accepted the top 30 students from all planets who pass the outer court entrance exam.
There are annual semester and final-year exams; those who failed might be expelled. From the fourth year, the exams would be involved with life-threatening missions; therefore, the number of students since this year might decrease. They get their missions from the Dou Tian Department.
By the end of the second year, the students must be one-word battle armor masters. To apply to the Inner Court, students needed to be a two-word battle armor master and pass the inner court entrance exam, with the exception that you would be automatically applied to the inner court if you have a three-word battle armor. Only about 10% of accepted students could do it.
Blacksmith Association Edit
Students and faculty come here to practice forging or to make and take requests on forging metals and alloys. Blacksmiths provide the metal for students to make their battle armor. The metals are very expensive, mainly because of the success ratio. A blacksmith need to burn through rare metals in order to practice and elevate their rank, so they spend the most money on their profession, which is another reason why the metals they forge are expensive to buy.
Mecha Association Edit
Battle Armor Department Edit
Sea God Lake Edit
Over 20,000 years ago, the lake was named in honor of Tang San becoming the Sea God, unofficially the Federation did not want to politically name it Shrek Lake. Sea God Island was located at the center of the lake until it was destroyed along with Shrek Academy in a terrorist attack by the Holy Spirit Cult 10,000 years ago. The Lake now covers the old Shrek Academy with the Eternal Tree at the center of the lake. The life aura from the tree washes into the lake, making the water rich with life energy. It is called by people as the water of life. Drinking the water and meditating in it helps improve a spirit master's body, prolonging their life, and speed of cultivation. Students spend a yellow medal to cultivate in the lake for an hour. Located around the base of the tree is the entrance to the Seven Holy Abyss. A defense system was placed around the lake to prevent anyone from stealing the lake water and to protect the Eternal Tree.
Seven Holy Abyss Edit
A small plane created at the base of the Eternal Tree using the destruction core taken from demon island and sustained by the life energy of the Eternal Tree. It is used as a refuge shelter and testing ground for those who have passed the inner court exam or becomes a candidate for the Shrek Seven Monsters. The Seven Old Devils live inside the plane. The test is designed to judge a person's character.
Shrek Hotel Edit
A hotel located within Shrek Academy's Outer Court. Students can reserve a room for family and friends when they come to visit them during their break times. Students taking the entrance test also temporarily stay here.
Exchange Center Edit
Duty Center Edit
Gambling Center Edit
Students, academy personal, and etc. come to the gambling center to bet on matches, weather they be team matches, individual matches, or etc. The Gambling Center only accepts badges as a bet. The interest rate depends on the odds of who will likely win the match. The side who will likely win has a smaller interest rate than the side that is expected to lose. The Gambling Center decides the interest rate based on reports and bets placed.
For example, Qian Lei betted a purple badge on the match between the first grade and the sixth grade that the first grade will win, and he got 150 purple badges. Tang Xuanyu betted on the matches when the first grade was challenging all the upper grades and got nearly 500 purple badges. This made him unwelcomed at the gambling center. Some of people felt like killing him.
Sea God Plaza Edit
Dragon Emperor Plaza Edit
A plaza built in honor of Tang Wulin. In the plaza stands a statue of him in his 4-word battle armor. God rank Singer Tang Wulin held one of his concerts in the plaza, dedicating his song "Sea God's Tears".
Seven Saints Abyss Realm Edit
A sub-space located at the base of the eternal tree created 10,000 years ago to be an examination place and emergency shelter if the need arises. Occupied by the Old Seven Sins Demons, they conduct tests on a person's moral character. Almost everyone in the inner court and faculty are required to go through the test. The test is required to become one of the Shrek Seven Devils. This test is viewed by many of its past examinees as horrifying and traumatizing, for the Old Demons it is a great source of black history gossip.
Currently, Tang Xuanyu is the only student blacklisted with a restraining order by the seven Old Demons because his existence subconsciously threatens the core (Life & Ruin Elements Balance) of the Seven Saints Abyss Realm. He is also the only examinee who did not conduct the original test, instead receiving Q/A interviews out of necessary speed to expel him from the premises.
Interstellar Center Edit
The location of Shrek Academy's Interstellar Command. Students learn how to fly mechas and fighters in space and how to command warships in space battles. Its notable teacher is Tang Zhenhua, an ace interstellar engineer, researcher and commander of the Inner Court.
Inner Court Edit
Each Shrek Inner Court student has the overall strength of a Titled Douluo. The students reside on top of the Eternal Tree, the Eternal City, and so do all the teachers. Inner Court students are not allowed to join other organizations, but there are exceptions, mainly Tang Sect. Newly enrolled Inner Court students can also allow family members, with Shrek Academy approval, to live in Shrek City, and Eternal Sky City if their cultivation is enough. Depending on the student's unofficial position in the school, family members can live in a building closer to the Eternal Tree.
Generally, within 1-2 years of Inner Court enrollment, Inner Court students can easily achieve a cultivation above eight rings.
Life School Edit
The Life School is divided into two divisions: Home Planet and Outer Planet.
Sea God Pavilion Edit
The Pavilion is located in the inner city of Eternal Sky City, in a sub-realm on a small island in the center of the Lake of Life under the Ancient Golden Tree. The Pavilion is made out of wood and has two floors. The first floor has the conference room. The second floor has individual rooms. Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena resides in one of the rooms.
Lake of Life Edit
A lake full of condensed life energy. The color of the water is dark-green. The Sea God Pavilion and Ancient Golden Tree is located on a island in the center of the lake. The lake water represents the life source level of the Douluo Planet. The water level was decreased after Tang Xuanyu absorbed it to break through to rank 60.
Immortal Spirit Paradise Edit
A sub-realm located in the Eternal Sky City. All Immoral Herbs who have reached the one hundred thousand year level and transformed into human form reside here. A majority of them came from the Tang Sect Ice and Fire Yin Yang Well. Their existence on-planet benefits and harms the Eternal Tree, powerful God ranks tremp cards that need to restrain to balance planetary life core energy taxes. Their unofficial leader is Tang Xuanyu's Xiao Bao.
Inner Court Students who had made great contributions to the academy can come here to choose a Immortal Herb. Similar to a spirit soul, they must be approved by the Immortal Herb and the contract will last until they reach the God Level. If they so choose, the Immortal Herb can stay with the spirit master. Unlike spirit beasts, immortal herbs can cultivate to the God Level, but they need a lot of life energy, so they form a contract, like that of a spirit soul, with a spirit master that has a chance to cultivate to God Rank in order for themselves to reach God Rank. Plus some of them just want to leave the sub-realm and see the outside world.
Emblem Currency Edit
Shrek Academy uses a Emblem Currency called Shrek Emblem [史莱克的徽章] instead of the Federation or the Virtual Douluo Dollar. The Emblems are created by the Eternal Tree with its life energy; therefore, they are very precious and much more valuable. It is used for multiple purposes: cultivation, buy spirit items, rare metals, herbs, and etc. They are only usable within Shrek City and the VR world, Douluo World.
The Emblem is earned depending on a student's contributions (through missions, works, or personal creation/possession to sell) and even gambling.
The Emblem is divided into 5 ranks (from lowest to highest). A higher-ranked emblem could be exchanged for the lower-ranked one, but the lower-ranked cannot be exchanged to the higher-ranked one; therefore, most people won't ever exchange the high-ranked emblem for the low-ranked ones
