-Drones don't fit in to the stories, I don't think... although I suppose there are a few ways to use this. One, make a drone third (we'll call that saidrone for now) and have them be equally strong in all areas. Two, continue ignoring Drones. No gender, no channeling. Three, declare all Drones to be Shadowspawn, specifically gholam. The Source cannot touch them and they cannot touch it. Four, declare Drones to use the True Source, the third form of channeling, and give them the saa which go along with it. Of course, that more or less means they're all Darkfriends with nasty black flecks crossing their eyes every time they channel, but that's the price you pay for not conforming.-
