OK. It just sounded like you hadn't read what I did, and that you were 
suggesting adding 4 pts armor as a solution to the very high St of stone.

It just seems odd to have stone be so much tougher than wood - my estimates 
give wood maybe 1-2 St per cm for a square meter, or 3-4 St per cm for a 1m x 
2m door. I also give wood 1 or 2 pts armor, so a good tough wooden door 1 m x 2 
m x 8 cm thick would have 2 pts armor and St 32. The equivalent stone door 
would be 4 pts armor and St 800 - 25 times more Strength. 

I could live with solid stone being that tough, but I'd also like to know how 
tough not-solid stone is - cracked stone, or stone or brick walls (either 
mortared or unmortared).

Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing: Are you asking if 
tunneling with *magic* is too easy, or if tunneling with *tools* is too easy?
