ZLOTA-BABA
Also known as SLATABABA, SLATA-BABA

Wealth Goddess who whispers rumors of treasure

What tangled dances the gods lead us on. ZLOTA-BABA was originally a gold statue of the Roman Goddess JUNO which was unceremoniously stolen by marauding Vandals and taken home to put on the mantelpiece.

Perhaps the Godcops came looking for her because they changed her name and license plates several times, finally settling on ZLOTA-BABA — 'The Golden Lady'. ("No-one will ever recognize her with that name.")

Her golden allure proved irresistible to rumor and gradually the superstition formed that she possessed the secret to obtaining a large pile of treasure. She is now lost but if you wish to search, we can point you in the direction of the marshes of the Lower Ob River in Siberia. Happy marshing.
