IPILYA

Swamp-dwelling Gecko God who manufactures monsoons

He is an enormous lizard one hundred meters long who lives in a large swamp. That's a serious amount of gecko.

He is responsible for thunderstorms and heavy rain. When the monsoon period is imminent, he slurps up large helpings of water and sludge which he squirts up into the sky where it forms into nice juicy thunderclouds.

With a bit of roaring, he sets things in motion and the torrents begin. With a final flourish of lightning flashes, he feels he has done his bit. Then he goes back to basking quietly in the swamp until next season.

Do not disturb him. Intruders will be severely slurped.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ipilya graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ipilya movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ipilya statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ipilya. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
