DU-SHI-WANG

Chinese Underworld God

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

Ruler of the Chinese Hell's Kitchen

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.
