I don't know about everyone else, but where is the logic in not allowing
thieves to backstab a wounded target? I can logically see a mob becoming
more aware of his surroundings after the first attack. THAT makes sense.

Not allowing an attack because the mob is bleeding already? That's a load
of crap that smells to high heaven. It would be EASIER to sneak up on
something that was bleeding to death and dazed. Please, for the sake of
realism in your muds, think about things like this before implementing
them. Suspension of Disbelief is hard enough to maintain as is.
