DU-SHI-WANG
Also known as HUANG-DU-SHI, T-TI-WANG

Ruler of the Eighth Court of [FENG-DU], the Chinese Hell.

This is the place for torture by suffocation. Atheists, and those who have betrayed their religion or cheated on the Gods, are flung into the Burning Wok of Oblivion. DU-SHI-WANG turns up the heat and you are asphyxiated by the steaming fumes.

He also runs the Tower of Homesickness, where you get to see how the folks back home are managing without you. This is your last glimpse of the life you once knew, as you are then taken straight to Court Nine, where PING-DENG-WANG decides your fate.

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