African Storm God

A safety-conscious Storm God

Most Gods of Thunder and Lightning are a bit fierce (if not completely homicidal). Not OSHE. If you’re worried about being zapped by a lightning bolt, his effigy on a priest’s staff can invoke protection. Call in at the staff room if the weather looks stormy.

GodNote: Sorry this Oshe article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
