The crows were to be involved in transporting the characters between the two worlds. I had hoped that they could appear from the ground, much like doves from a magician kerchief, with a flutter of wings, more and more of them until they formed a massive black cloud that would then disperse revealing the characters. The process would happen in reverse in the other world, with the whole flock gathering to hide the characters then disapearing into the ground like water down a drain.
A little expensive, maybe.
