A PC party either tried to summon Thor or there had a ythian lighting gun shoot-out.

Since this is Norway I'm going with summoning Thor. Either way it's Delta Green material.

Not so much a story, but a past belief - Witches Allegedly Stole Penises and Kept Them as Pets in the Middle Ages

Yes, this would fit in a game I am running.

We need a fantasy version of Florida Man - Faerun Elf.


"Florida Man arrested for robbing grave for wallet and shoes"

Sounds like something only Florida Man would do.

"Faerun Elf arrested for robbing grave for coin purse and boots"

Sounds like something every PC ever would do. Every PC is Florida Man.

Adam Carolla's podcast used to have a great game called "Germany or Florida?"

They'd read a really strange news story, remove any identifying details, and they had to guess if it was from Germany or Florida because that's where all the insane stuff happens.

La Mancha Negra (The Black Stain) is a mysterious black substance that has oozed from roads in Caracas, Venezuela which first appeared in 1986. Since the appearance of La Mancha Negra, it has caused multiple car accidents and claimed thousands of lives. Finding the cause of the substance has proven difficult and there are still no definitive explanations
