Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, is the Tian Xia god of trickery, nature, and drunkenness.1


Sun Wukong is depicted as a monkey, he was originally a stone monkey statue that was brought to life and he has retained that appearance. When he travels abroad across the Material Plane, rather than a monkey, he usually appears instead in the guise of a drunken martial artist.1

Holy Symbol

Sun Wukong's holy symbol is a depiction of his original form, a stone monkey statue with a long tail that encircles him.1


Originally a stone statue, Sun Wukong was given life and eventually became king of all monkeys. That was not enough for him, so he went before Qi Zhong, god of magic, hoping to glean the secret of immortality. Qi Zhong would not part with this secret, but taught Sun Wukong many other techniques. Undeterred, the ambitious Monkey King then sneaked into Pharasma's Boneyard and erased his name from her records, so gaining immortality.1

Church of Sun Wukong

The Monkey King is worshiped throughout Tian Xia. He loves traveling the Material Plane in the guise of a drunken human martial artist; in this way, the hedonistic god picks fights, woos beautiful women, and drowns himself in potent alcohol. His worship is most common in the Forest of Spirits, the city of Goka, Hwanggot, Kwanlai, Minata, and the Successor State of Quain.1
