YAMAlso known as YAMM, YAW, NAHAR
Stormy Sea God with greater aspirations
He is a formidable deity who rules the ocean with his pet serpent LEVIATHAN and lets loose with storms whenever he loses his temper. Which is often. For it seems YAM is not content with being a mere god of the sea. He wants to be a god of everything.This presents a problem as the vacancy is already filled. Cue a never-ending cycle of arguments between YAM and BAAL, the well known trouble-making Top God.
To BAAL's horror, YAM was granted planning permission for a magnificent new palace. Apparently he'd bypassed the usual channels and gone direct to EL, the supreme planning officer. BAAL, whose own plans for a new palace had been rejected, seethed with jealousy. War was declared.
But YAM was not easily beaten and gave BAAL a good trouncing right between the eyes. As a last resort, BAAL sneaked out two magic clubs made by KOTHAR and reversed the situation in no uncertain manner.
Now YAM is a silent as a clam. At least until the next time.
