Waj-cloth is made from spider silk, correct. It might be nice to have waj-cloth
armour, but I disagree in waj giving protection against piercing. For example:
Kevlar can be penetrated with arrows, but kevlar does protect against 
crushing force of a bullet. Waj-cloth could protect against slashes (and
maybe even pierces/stabs) if that is not found to be too unbalancing.
(Though not many has spoken for 'Balanced Majik', imho, Majik should
be balanced, otherwise the few min-maxers who WILL come to play, will
rule the world with their min-maxed characters)

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards,

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
