Your Field Guide to Spotting Amun

If you want to find Amun, you might have to try pretty hard. He's a very secretive guy. If you're lucky enough to be a pharaoh, you'll probably have better luck. Not only will he help you reign justly and wisely, but he'll sleep with your wife so you have godly children (this is a good thing), and sit with you in the afterlife while you... eat the organs of the other gods. If you're not a pharaoh, try a temple in Karnak. If you confess your sins to him, he might help you out. Kind of a weird guy, but we have yet to hear a complaint about him. If push comes to shove, just look for the blue guy wearing the super tall hat.
