These days, Miyo-Lang-Sangma puts a ban on all those rubbish these pesky tourists are leaving. Morally questionable behaviour is a no-no and so is roasting animal meat.
i’d like you all to know that in Lydney, Britain there was a lead plaque found with an inscription by a man named Silvianus cursing a man named Sencianus for stealing his ring, and asking Nodens (god of the sea and healing) to strike him with illness until the ring was returned
Several miles away, at a town called Silchester the ring was found, a signet ring bearing the image of Venus and an inscription saying “Sencianus lives in God” (meaning he’s a Christian). The ring was buried under what is now a farm, and apparently inspired the One Ring of Tolkien (he helped translate the curse and his estate set up a display with the ring, a copy of the curse tablet and a first-edition copy of the Hobbit).
Because Filipino stories are scary and just yes.

(demigod) The only demigod child of Mokosh, the Slavic Earth goddess. Since interfering with mortal world is a no-no with the Slavic gods (and sleeping with a mortal is almost a horrible thing to do), Mokosh had to hide her pregnancy from the all-seeing justice-distributing eye of Svarozhich. Mokosits sprung out as a full adult. All-seeing justice god exposed Mokosits (who by then was working part-time priest for his mom) and demand him to be executed.
Mokosh’s pleading clearly helped in the trial. It was decided that Mokosits would guard the gates of the underworld. Mokosh was also not allowed to receive sacrifices again.

(spirit) An Inuit ice demon with long sharp claws that loves tickling his victim to death. The victims could be seen with a twisted frozen smile before their death. Just great.
However if you ever see a Mahaha, ask it to join with you in drinking at the last waterhole.

An ancient earth-god in Egypt. He was believed to guard the gates of the dawn from which the sun rose each morning. He was portrayed as a double-headed lion, or a two lions sitting back-to-back. In between them is shown the sun with the sky overhead. In this way they form the akhet symbol, which was a symbol of the horizon. The two lions were called Sef and Duau, which means “Yesterday” and “Today” respectively.
As Egyptians believed that the gates of the morning and evening were guarded by Aker, they often placed statues of lions at the doors of their palaces and tombs. This was to guard the households and tombs from evil spirits and other malevolent beings.
