Spirit Pagoda the number one organization on the Douluo Continent created by Huo Yuhao to create the Spirit Souls during the extinction of the Spirit Beasts. It's the only place where one can purchase a Spirit Soul. There are one Spirit Pagoda per city. The Spirit Pagodas in the eighteen major cities are called the Eighteen Pillars of Heaven and each one of them has a mural about Huo Yuhao, his Spirit Souls and his friends.
Spirit Ascension Platform Edit
Spirit Pagodas of major cities have a spirit ascension platform. In total, there are eighteen on Douluo Continent.
The spirit ascension platform was created by the Spirit Pagoda. Soul Masters can go there to gain experience and increase their strength. Moreover, one can experience the charms of the ancient Soul Master’s world. Over ten Title Douluos were involved in it's creation, and the greatest researchers of the time poured their efforts into it. Only after the Spirit Pagoda invested an enormous amount of resources was "The Spirit Ascension Platform" completed.
Originally, the spirit ascension platform was used as a step in the Spirit Pagoda’s research into artificial Spirit Souls. They hoped that it would be able to upgrade artificial Spirit Souls, and hence manufacture even stronger Spirit Souls. After completion, however, they discovered that it was only a partial success. Although the "spirit ascension platform" could upgrade Spirit Souls, it's effects weren’t as great as they expected, and it's nature wasn’t too clear.
After making such a large investment, the Spirit Pagoda couldn’t discard the product. After another period of development, the spirit ascension platform became a unique place. To put it simply, it’s the crystallization of the continent’s best spirit devices and the efforts of the greatest Spirit Masters and researchers. After entering the spirit ascension platform, a Spirit Master will feel that they had entered a whole different realm, yet they would still be protected by the spirit ascension platform. The danger inside isn’t too high, but Spirit Masters can battle with soul beasts to increase their combat experience in there. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to upgrade your Spirit Soul.
The spirit ascension platform has multiple layers. It costs about 500,000 federal coins per entry into the elementary spirit ascension platform. There are only one thousand spots each month for the elementary spirit ascension platform. And spaces for the intermediate and advanced spirit ascension platforms are even fewer. This is because they consume even more resources, so the cost of entry is also several times higher.
The Spirit Pagoda was a relatively democratic organization. There was a council of thirty-six elders who would handle all important decisions.There were a few superior officers above the council. This included the Spirit Pagoda Master, two vice Pagoda Masters, and four spiriters. They made up forty-two members in total, and they collectively formed the superior officers of the organization. Even the Pagoda Master could not do as he wished. However, the Pagoda Master had the right to veto, which was the greatest power he held. The vice Pagoda Master and spiriters had two votes each, which was only one vote less than the Pagoda Master's three votes. Every council elder had one vote. Whenever there was an important decision to be made, it was the time for a collective vote to be done.
For the two vice Pagoda Masters and the four spiriters, they had to have made some sort of great contribution to Spirit Pagoda to be elected. However, the more important thing was that they represented Spirit Pagoda's peak combat strength. They were masters that were at least of Hyper Douluo rank.
