Sexy Snail God of Misfortune

Also known as God N. N is for Not Lucky. One of the PAUAHTUN, he is the God of Five Unlucky Days. When they are or how often they occur is not clear. Once a year would be tolerable but every week would be a bit over the top.

He may also be the first God to wear a shell suit, as a snail shell seems to be his principle abode. We know snail shells are also capable of containing much holiness.

UAYEB is also often portrayed as a drunken sex-maniac. There's obviously quite a lot we don't know about him. To be honest, we are reluctant to learn more.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Uayeb graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Uayeb 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 Uayeb statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Uayeb. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
