Am I reading this that it takes 100 ST of damage to advance the whole
face of a tunnel (say 1 m x 2 m ) one cm? That's removing, um... 2
million cc's of stone. Sounds pretty cheap at the price, if I have it
right. The typical "100 ST of damage" as applied to, say, killing a
dozen goblins, probably would not involve removing 2 million cc's of
goblin flesh. But then, stone isn't that resilient, and you probably
get some benefit from fracturing.
No, tunneling (with picks) isn't too easy. Not that I've ever
actually *tunneled* before in real life, but in TFT, even as dwarves,
my characters take *forever* to hollow out a good underground palace
for themselves. Remember too, that normal dungeon maps are in
megahexes, so it's not just a 1-m wide tunnel. It takes a while.
Months, even for just a few rooms.
