January 25, 2008: In Kington, Herefordshire, sheep have been gathering in mysterious circles, reminiscent of crop circles. A local farm manager claimed that the likely reason for this behavior is that the sheep had been fed with food arranged in such circles.
Game and Story Use
- Crop circles are often associated with fairies. Perhaps fairies need such circular arrangements to enter and leave our world - so maybe they caused the sheep to gather in such circles to gain better access to either world.
- Or perhaps the sheep are summoning the Elder Sheep God, Baa-Ewe-Baa to take vengence on wool-gathering humanity. Just sayin' is all.
- Sheep trained to form magic circles on command or trample them out could be useful to a wizard who uses such things.
