Soul Land 3 Plot Edit

Volume 1 - Awakening Edit

Living in an impoverished family with his adoptive father Tang Ziran and adoptive mother Lang Yue, in Glorybound City a small town sitting on the border between the ocean and the eastern coast of the Sun-Moon Federation, Tang Wulin was always looking forward to awakening his martial spirit and becoming a powerful Spirit Master to support them. However when he awakened his spirit at the age of six, it was a spirit considered trash by all; Blue Silver Grass. In spite of the fact that during the awakening process he underwent excruciating pain and displayed golden lines which ran across his body surprising the Spirit Master that was conducting the awakening, as he had never faced such a situation before. Nevertheless, Wulin vowed to work extremely hard and become a powerful Spirit Master, despite his Innate Spirit Power being rank 3.

Having spirit power Wulin decided to attend the Spirit Master class, a class for those who had innate spirit power, in Red Mountain Academy, a three-year elementary academy. According to the regulations set by the Sun-Moon Federation, elementary and intermediate academies had free tuition and were compulsory. In the Spirit Master class he met his first teacher Lin Ximeng, who would teach Wulin over the next three-years the basic knowledge required for Spirit Masters. When it was revealed that his spirit was Bluesilver Grass, the teacher did not pay much attention to him compared to the other students. Tang Wulin learned how to mediate on his first day of school.

Meeting Na'er Edit

While he was returning home from the first day at Red Mountain Academy, he encountered a bunch of delinquents picking on a young girl. He immediately intervened and managed to save her, as they were frightened by his status as a child who possessed spirit power. The girl revealed her name as Na' er. Wulin decided to bring her to his home and later, learning that she suffered from a memory lose and not being able to find records on her or her parents, expressed his wish to have her as his little sister, which she and his parents accepted.But Unfortunately Later Na' er Betrayed Tang Wulin And Tried to kill Him.

Mang Tian's Workshop Edit

Having the wish to cultivate as a Spirit Master would prove to be expensive, as by the time he reached rank 10 and became a Spirit Master, Wulin would need to purchase his first spirit soul at the Spirit Pagoda, not an easy task considering his family's financial situation. Tang Ziran explained this to him and asked him to work as a blacksmith at Mang Tian's place, so that he could earn money to support himself. Wulin eagerly agreed and the next day after school, visited the blacksmith with his mother. Mang Tian would not accept him so easily, so he gave Tang Wulin a test, striking a metal a thousand times, which Wulin managed to pass and even proved himself gifted in the field. Mang Tian decided to accept him as his disciple. He tells Wulin to keep hitting the metal.

After a while, Mang Tian tells Wulin to stop for the day, and prepares some ointment to give to Lang Yue for Wulin's swollen hands, impressed with his determination and sticking through it for so long. Sitting in the lounge while Lang Yue looks at Wulin's hands, Mang Tian explains forging to the child. At home, Na’er still hasn't recovered any of her memories, and the kids start eating dinner, but Wulin can't even lift his arms, so Na’er feeds him. Before bed, Wulin shows Na’er his BSG, and tells her she will also have a spirit when she turns 6, before falling asleep on the bed and Na’er soon falling asleep beside him.

Next Three Years Edit

Three years later, Wulin has grown much taller, taller than any of his peers, and is well built. Even with BSG, he has become quite popular. Wan Yunchao originally tried to bully Wulin due to his BSG, but was swiftly beaten and eventually became his friend. Wan Yunchao was one of the first in the class to reach 10th level to gain a soul, and Wulin is close behind, being gifted in meditation.[1] He sometimes get into fights when he sees people bullying Na’er.

Under Mang Tian, he spent the first three months practicing the proper force transmission and mitigation techniques. Each day he had to strike the iron for two hours. Those two hours were always an abyss of suffering for him.[2] After three months of practice, he was allowed to do some simple metal extraction work. One year later, he began making the simplest of components. It wasn’t until half a year before that he had been promoted from forging small components to medium sized components.

Every month, Wulin would save part of his wages and used the rest to spend on sister and give the rest to his mother to aid in their family expenses.

First Spirit Soul Edit

Having finally saved 30,000 spirit coins, after finishing his task at Mang Tian's workshop for the day, he runs home to count it and make sure. His dad declares they will go together to get his spirit soul after he reaches rank 10. That night, he is too excited to sleep and leaves the room after pulling Na'er's quilt over her properly. He leaves the room and enters the garden he regularly visited with Na'er, which calmed him. He sat down to meditate.

Tang Wulin made a breakthrough to rank 10. His mom came to the garden to pick him up and they went home to eat breakfast. When he went to the academy, Wulin took a spirit power test to make sure he was rank 10. His teacher advised him to get a spirit soul as quickly as he can.

That evening, after dinner, Tang Wulin went to the beach with Na'er. As they walked along the rough beach, Na'er asked if she were to leave one day, would he miss her. Wulin answered he will. Na'er will miss him as well. Wulin vowed he will always protect her.

The next morning, Tang Wulin went to the Spirit Pagoda with his father. Once they arrived, they found out from a staff member that Wulin only has enough money to get a random spirit soul. Tang Ziran tries to convince Wulin to come back another day, after they get enough money to buy a ten year old spirit soul, because there is a chance Wulin might end up getting a defective spirit soul from the random spirit soul selection. Tang Wulin decides to do the selection. He doesn't want to burden his family with borrowing money to get him a spirit soul when his father and mother are already tiring themselves out everyday for him and Na'er. Admiring his thoughtfulness, the staff member exempts him from the fee to get his spiritual power tested.

Grass Snake Edit

Tang Wulin followed the staff member to get his spiritual power tested while his father waited in the lobby. His spiritual power was revealed to be at 38, the intermediate rank of the spirit origin realm, which means Wulin will be able to fuse with a hundred year old spirit soul. Afterward, the staff member took Wulin and Tang Ziran to the spirit selection machine, a three meter tall, six meter wide gigantic machine. Numerous glowing spheres with a diameter of about one third of a meter could be seen within it. Each and every one of these balls of light were exactly the same.[3] Wulin started the machine and a little latter got a random metal case ball. The staff member handed an oval shaped device that will allow him to break open the case see his spirit soul. It turned out to be a ten year old grass snake and it was a defective spirit soul. Wulin was devastated.

Tang Wulin didn’t know how he had gotten home, but he had been holding the spirit soul ball close to his heart the whole time. His father tried to cheer Wulin up. As soon as they got home, Wulin went to his room. Na'er followed after him. He sat on his bed and gazed at the spirit soul in his hands, then looked to his own callused hands. In the end, tears began to stream uncontrollably down his face. Through all his hardships, getting bluesilver grass as a spirit and forging everyday for the past three years, bearing through the pain and suffering, he never cried. But he cried now.

Despair, sorrow, and all sorts of dark emotions lingered within Tang Wulin’s heart.[4] Na'er wiped away his tears and brought his head into her embrace. Crying really was the best way to vent one’s feelings. After wetting Na’er’s shoulder with his tears, the sound of weeping gradually stopped.[5]

Spirit Mutation Edit

Tang Wulin decided to fuse with the spirit soul. Na'er left the room and he started the fusion process. A soft blue light was released from the Bluesilver Grass and fell on the Grass Snake. Tang Wulin sensed a feeble mind enter his head. It felt amiable and frightened, but it was also brimming with a feeling of dependence.

Tang Wulin opened up his soul and accepted it inside. Changes immediately began to arise upon the Bluesilver Grass while its soul power surged forth.[6] He entered a state of meditation as his fusion begins.

Tang Wulin’s soul power began to violently fluctuate as it met with the bottleneck, breaking through and evolving his martial soul at the same time.

Tang Wulin’s whole body felt light as the condensed soul power within his dantian had countless threads penetrating into every single cell of his body. The cells in his body were aroused and brimming with energy. They were filled with a light-hearted and worry-free feeling which finally relieved the depression within his heart.

Right at that moment, Tang Wulin suddenly felt a wave of heat coming from his tailbone. This heat soon turned into a scorching hot sensation which traveled up his spine before continuing to spread throughout his body. The aura around his body had experienced a slight change after this.[7]

The faint golden veined pattern appeared once again, rapidly descending from Tang Wulin’s forehead while the golden thread from his tailbone quickly rose. The two golden lights met at the apex of his vertebra and merged into one.

This golden color was much clearer than before. It hadn’t only spread all over his body, but also onto the little Grass Snake in his palm and the Bluesilver Grass which had just finished evolving.

An indescribable pain spread throughout his body, making him feel as if his body was being smelted inside a furnace. After an unknown period of time, the scorching heat began to cool down. However, it was replaced by a numbness which permeated throughout the four limbs and hundred bones. It was as if a myriad of insects was crawling about within his body. Tang Wulin wanted to cry out in pain, but he was unable to release a single sound. He already began to look back fondly at the scorching heat he had experienced beforehand.[8]

The pain tormented him to the point that his body wished for a release of death, but his mind was abnormally clear. He could clearly feel all of the pain throughout his body. His spiritual power continued to rise under the torment. The pain in his body gradually disappeared and his fuzzy consciousness went with it. Under his clothes drenched in sweat, the golden veined pattern hadn’t waned at all; instead, it had permeated into his skin.[9]

Spirit Soul Demonstration Edit

In the evening, Tang Wulin woke up. As he opened his eyes, he gradually regained awareness of his surroundings. He abruptly sat up, sensing the changes within his body. The scorching heat and numbness were gone, his body feeling as light as a feather. Moreover, his drenched clothes were replaced with a set of fresh, clean ones. He had broken through and reached Rank 11. He is now an official Spirit Master.

The door then opened and three adults and one child entered the room. The third adult was Mang Tian. He came over when Wulin did not go to work today. His mother, Lang Yue had already burst into tears as she rushed ahead and embraced Tang Wulin. Wulin comforted his mom and assured her that he was fine. Mang Tian asked to see Wulin's spirit when he said he had reached Rank 11. [[File:0003 (1).jpg|thumb|316x316px]] In the manhua, Long Ge was present during the demonstration.

Tang Wulin got off the bed and raised his right hand. The dim room immediately lit up. A white spirit ring rose from his feet and slowly revolved around his body. A brillant yellow radiance appeared from his right palm. Within, the Grass Snake came out. Immediately afterwards, a slender blade of blue vine-like grass as thick as a finger twirled into existence. The vine spread outwards, quickly spreading into every corner of the room.[10]

Mang Tian lifted his arm and pulled on the Bluesilver Grass. Mang Tian comforted Tang Wulin that even if he could not become a powerful spirit master, he could still become a mecha master or an expert blacksmith.

When the Bluesilver Grass fell on the floor, Mang Tian noticed something unusual about it.
