I originally conceived my version along those lines. I ended up changing 
it because I wanted players to have the power to decide exactly what 
sort of actions deserve revenge.

All around, I think both versions would be a lot of fun, even without 
using them as an anti-griefer tool. Hopefully, I'll begin to find out 
within the next year or so. I'm making a lot more forward progress now, 
and a lot less lateral progress.
