African Supreme God

Also known as ONYAME

Emergency Substitute God of Omnipotence

He was called in at the last minute to take universal control from ODOMANKOMO who had a spot of trouble with Death. NYAME is everywhere and sees everything even when he is not looking.

If you wish to speak to him please contact the wind, or maybe the wind has to contact you. Any offerings should be placed in a small pot containing a Neolithic axe.
