I'm with Tasan... if you don't have WinPatrol, you are in for headaches. The best part of it is that since it blocks installs until you ok it, you have time to go delete the problem file before it does anything, just don't click ok/o on WinPatrol until you've deleted source.

Since a comprehensive review of dragons is obviously needed, how about making the things that are NOT DRAGONS not be dragons?

There are a number of things in game that,
Buffet and shouldn't,
Cast and shouldn't,

and with the change probably
claw,bite, roar and shouldn't
