In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Zuoken is the Baklunish god of physical and mental mastery. His symbol is a striking fist. He is a servant power of the goddess Xan Yae.


Zuoken was once a mortal servant of Xan Yae who had mastered both martial arts and psionics, and was rewarded with godhood by his mistress.

Zuoken's imprisonment[]

In 505 CY, Zuoken stopped manifesting to his followers on Oerth. His followers have discovered that his essence is being held somewhere in the central Flanaess. Though the exact location is uncertain, Zuoken’s faithful continue to seek their master.

The truth of the matter is that Zuoken was one of the nine demigods that the mad archmage Zagig Yragerne captured and imprisoned beneath Castle Greyhawk as part of Zagig’s plot to achieve godhood. While the other eight prisoners were released around 570 after the release of Iuz, Zuoken would remain imprisoned until 597, when he was finally released after an attempt by a clone of the witch-queen Iggwilv to attain full sentience in a scheme centering around Zagig’s Godtrap.
