WOYENGI

Creative Goddess of Human Resources

She came down to Earth on a streak of lightning, but all she found on arrival was a table, a chair and a flat stone. Oh yes, and extraordinary quantities of mud.

Happily, WOYENGI is very adept at creative crafts. She made lots and lots of little mud dolls and gave them the breath of life. They even had a choice of gender when it came to sticking on the extra wobbly bits.

Then came the job interviews. Each one was given career advice and offered a choice of occupation. Depending on their decision, each one was sent down a clear, muddy or tempestuous waterway to the appropriate H.R. Department.

After a while, some of them wanted to change their minds. Especially the ones in the muddy jobs. But the employment bureau had vanished, the welfare queue was closed and there was no going back. Even if you thought you had been sold down the river.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Woyengi graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Woyengi 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 Woyengi statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Woyengi. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
