I had initially considered the Ebon Hawk, but I'm afraid that anything I do will break another mod.
I dug around and found my old "follow" script, so C3FD is definitely going to happen in one context or another. I can certainly give C3FD some utility functionality wherever it turns up! I hadn't really thought about that.
*snork* I also found my old "Spawn Vandar" spell, and the one that turns hostiles into gizkas! I think I'll modify the first one to spawn a small cloud of angry remotes around a target.
