  But what if you want your mobs to do something completely different
  every second, instead of just having them attack.  And it makes sense
  that they'll be able to run through the room without being attacked;
  I don't know about you, but when I enter a room I'm not right up against
  someone and they don't immediately react to my presence.  It takes a
  second for them to notice me, then act.  Thus, I have a bit to think
  about what is happening, what I'm going to do, and then act.  It's only
  logical that you give players the same ability to get away before they
  are butchered.
