Incan Thunder God

Also known as ILLAPA, ILYAP'A, IYAPA, KATOYLLA

Inca Thunder God of pot shots

Fires a sling at a water pot carried by the Milky Way, who happens to be his sister. The cracking of crockery is what produces thunder and deluges.

In times of dire drought, simply tie up a black dog until it’s wilting with thirst. ILYAPA will take pity on the poor creature and send rain in abundance.
