JUOK
Also known as NYIKANG

Creator God

His story is rather complicated and involves Heaven and Earth being loaves of bread. There is also fish from the river Nile, grain, cattle, sickness and suffering. This all sounds a bit Biblical to be honest.

It all boils down to Nyikang, the local king, being propelled to divine status. Do you really need to know more?

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Juok graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Juok movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Juok statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Juok. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
