True.  On the other hand, this runs us into another quandary, in that,
although we would want the guards to be tough enough to deter most people,
we still do not want to deter everyone, as this woudld discourage rp.
However, if you later have some hi-level who is able to overcome the guards
say "hell w/ it", and go and kill off all your newly vulnerable pc's
(effectively, killing off a generation), it would make a very big setback to
your population.
