Halloween '17: Mushroom Men by Monster-Man-08 Halloween '17: Mushroom Men by Monster-Man-08
It's the 5th Annual "13 Days of Halloween Monsters" thing!

The mushroom men are playful little scamps who can often be found dancing in a ring in groups of 32. These fungal friends more than happy to let humans join in, though they're not so keen on letting them leave. Sometimes they'l feed their guests to their mycelium core, sometimes they'll turn them into a cloud of spores, and sometimes they just want to dance for far, far longer than the humans expect. The 'shrooms keep them alive and well the entire time, of course, it’s not THEIR fault the humans lose track of the years...

___________________
Instead of the typical toadstool, these mushroom men are based on the "bleeding tooth fungus" Hydnellum peckii, which manages to look both horrifying AND scrumptious!

I suppose we owe William Hope Hodgson the origins of Myco-logical horror. Or has this been far longer than humanity can fathom???

These sound pretty interesting.
So what is the mycelium core, and what happens to those who are fed to it? If the person is turned into spores, are they (or a part of them) reborn as one of these? Do they like, ever let the people who they have dance with them leave? If so, when the person goes back to the "real world" what happens then?

I love these guys, they're the most classic representations of the Fair Folk.
