Run For Your Lives

Why the heck would anyone who wasn't Dragonborn or even a warrior or guard hang around to get destroyed by a legendary mythical beast? The answer is they wouldn't and shouldn't. This mod aims to fix the stupidity of the NPC AI when it comes to dragon attacks in exactly that way. Now, NPC citizens won't try to be heroes and rush off to their death, instead fleeing to their homes, the inn, or the nearest safe structure to avoid being cooked to a crisp, much like they ought to!
