How does this affect the thugs?  Presumably, if you can see the thugs, then
they should be able to see you also.  Does this mean that auto-attacking
mobs will move and attack to adjacent rooms too?  What about sound too?
Should this include giving the thugs the ability to taunt or throw insults
to people within adjacent rooms?  I like some of these concepts, but for
myself, I think the complexity gets pretty heavy.  I'll be interested to
hear more about how it works as you move into alpha testing.
