Maybe this seems wrong to some people, but does a victim necessarily
have to be excluded from being hit again?  If you're trying to write like
the AD&D spell, it has the possibility(worst-case scenario) of bouncing
back and forth between two people, until the spell is exhausted.

What if you simply kept one value in the spell, keeping track of who was
last hit?  That person would be immune from the next hit, but could be
hit again afterwards. (In fact, if the spell could follow the current victim
from room to room, it would open up a whole new range of possibilities.)
