This attribute allows a character to move earth and/or burrow underground. It is usually possessed by borrowing creatures like moles, worms, and earth elementals. Tunneling assumes that the character is going through sand or packed earth; boring through solid rock is one level slower. The tunnel that the character leaves behind will either be permanent or will collapse immediately (this must be specified during character creation).
Level One: The character tunnels very slowly, similar to the speed of ten men with shovels.
Level Two: The character tunnels slowly, similar to the speed of a bulldozer.
Level Three: The character tunnels at a snail's pace (up to 1 mph).
Level Four: The character tunnels at a walking speed (up to 10 mph).
Level Five: The character tunnels at slow vehicle speeds (up to 30 mph). This level requires the Speed attribute.
Level Six: The character tunnels at fast vehicle speeds (up to 100 mph). This level requires the Speed attribute.
