A shaman society secret to normal humans, in the late 2000s era where phones and the internet exist: why and how would they still put to work their black feathery friends?
They were crucial before all these fancy shmancy phones and the world wide web stuff came around, but now a Samsung flip phone can do their jobs faster.
What jobs would the shamans give them instead?
- most normal people don't really believe magic exists, so most of them don't really try to uncover the truth.
- there exist evil shaman factions that may try to steal that information through using "cyberphantoms", spirit familiars that can go steal info on the web; or try to capture the crows themselves.
- these sapient crows look almost identical to regular crows.
