A murder of crows
Yesterday when I got home from work and let the dogs out in the back yard I looked up and saw crows flying from west to east. Lots of crows. For over 20 minutes. There were hundreds of them that I could see, maybe a couple of thousand over the entire period. I took a video of some of it - Crows over Baltimore. To be honest, it was kinda creepy. Yet at the same time I thought what a great mood setter for a game. How would players react to seeing a couple of thousand crows flying in one direction overhead? It isn't really anything they can directly interact with, but they're left with a choice - go where the crows are going, go where they came from, or ignore it.
