hello dudes and dames, today, I wish to tell you the story of men, who "were wolves"

If you sometimes visit the countryside of Finland, some of the old timers may whisper in the night about,
"ox beans"
they are then referring to horrible incidents when the yields have become infected with ergot, a tiny but deadly mushroom, that affects all sorts of food plants when right before the harvest festival there has been heavy rain...

these people who had ate the bread, in these times, suddenly degenerated to a primal rage and mania.

this happened also in my grandfathers village, when he was just a boy, and he still remembers the night, that was filled with screams and the laughing and roaring of lycans,

it was a terrible incident that lead to murders,missing persons and suicide. and it was so horrible, that no one of the villagers ever mentioned it again.
these were the times, when men could become wolves.

by the way, I love you grandpa, keep it real, man!

If "no one ever mentioned it again", how did you hear about it?

The only true werewolf was that guy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and he didn't need any soy beans or tommyknocker beans to roam the night, ring doorbells, and run away (the favorite game of the werewolves).

I like the Finland angle.

Finland has nice looking women, that's for sure, which is probably why the men kicked the nazis butts out of there. As for the story, are you saying this actually occurred, that you heard it from your grandpa? I thought you were storytelling. Of course the ergot could cause howling at the moon and all, the tiny little potent mushroom spore that it is, but I've never heard of an actual instance like this. Real?

If it is, wheel or get your grandpa to a keyboard and have him tell us all about it! Thanks for the fun story

here it was called "ox bean" because of the strenght that the infected gained, along with insanity..

Nice. If it is real I'd suggest you at least record your gramps telling the story, and ask him questions like a reporter, to get his information on the record. In America the ergot thing got the women in Salem into boiling water (literally), and that's the major incident of this type I've heard of, but a town doing the howling and playing on a harvest's night sounds like an incident worth researching and having on the record. Even though this is in your own family, a good find!

we live in small country. and the old villages were even smaller, like 20 people,,
i guess i could get the story on record if the timing is right, at some point.
the really big and bad ones happened in other larger villages in europe...

and we also have this hero, called Lalli, who decapitated one of the bishops that were forcing christianity to our people, we still have parts of that bishop in a museum. maybe he was a werewolf also


and when our ancient altars were destroyed, and replaced by churches, we used to mob-up and carry the priest to the yard, and we threw them to the other side of the church fence.
we had also high kings here, one of them was king kaukomieli that is translated to "far, and wide" unfortunately this, like many other things has been forgotten. damn you sweds!

That's just the historian in me talking. Getting the story out here is getting it on the record. Ah, harvest nights have their thrills, and so many good ancient festivals are organized around the harvests. I suppose another reason for the partying is that people can relax for a couple of months, until the planting season rolls around. At least Europeans have the common sense to know what ergot is, that Salem witch fiasco in America still gives their mentality a black eye. But your story includes murder and mayhem, so I suppose Europeans have their demons too! I hope more people join this thread, it's a good one
