BA-JA

Scruffy Mongolian God of Scarecrows

This dear old Mongolian general with a splendid record was rewarded in extreme old age with the job of Celestial Scarecrow. Or Scarelocust in this case.

His new uniform included an eagle's beak, talons and a blue skin, but he was allowed to keep his general's cloak.

BA-JA's image was put on poles and was not always very effective as he was inclined to doze off. But as a Worzel Gummidge sort of God he is regarded with great affection.

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