PING-DENG-WANGAlso known as LU-PING-DEN, P'ING-TENG-WANG
Ruler of the Ninth Court of [FENG-DU], the Chinese Hell.Here is the Hell of the Iron Web. It appears to be a wire mesh upon which you are trapped while PING-DENG-WANG reviews your case. All the evidence is gathered, and your degree of penitence judged.
If you have committed one of the Ten Unpardonable Sins, there's no hope. You are stuck in FENG-DU forever. And a particularly nasty bit of it too. Otherwise you are sent to ZHUANG-LUN-WANG in the Tenth Court for rebirth in a manner appropriate to your karma.
By all accounts, PING-DENG-WANG is a fair-minded judge. This is a comforting thought. Although after all that punishment there may not be much of you left to judge.
