NAM-SHUB

Speech with magical connotations and incantations.

Did you know the Sumerians spoke with an Agglutinative tongue? This is even more terrible than you can imagine, because it is a collection of Morphemes (which are in turn syllables) strung together like a sort of gargling. Nam-Shub-Alub-Ablub. No wonder the Tower of Babel got babbled out of existence.

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