in the boneyard

So I recast my story, and the five of them are now setting out into the microcosm labyrinth, which will allow them to select a location.  Their guide has already selected the boneyard. The Wise Old Wizard objects, and . . .

well, recasting, I made the guide turned into a crow.  He can turn back, but it was originally cast on him.  (He may need to change back from time to time -- cusre and all that.)  He tells the Wise Old Wizard that being a crow meant he learned about death, and has, in fact, hidden out in the boneyard, though that's impossible with the students.

Lo and behold, I have not only introduced shapeshifting into the world, I have ensured that they change into iconic animals and gain marvelous knowledge from it.

hmmm.  Perhaps it could have unpleasant consequences.  The guide, after all, was forced into it.
