Regarding zopiate's error: try changing to use WHAM or a CCS instead of just attack with weapon.
Script request: Could we maybe fix up the pastamancer quest a bit? After we get the decoded notes, we abort instead of using them because we're still dealing with the crystal. We also use the crystal for validation rather than the new thrall commands, which is probably why it will try to farm another 5 cult-bits. Even if it aborts and makes us get spaghetti to level 3 ourselves (though it should be able to use the same basic farming that it did before for that), it would be a nice improvement.
