Proposed Canon

A gate is the entrance to a city. Gates include a type of Dirtamancy trap called a portcullis, which can be slammed shut at will.

Not all cities have gates, since they provide a single point of weakness and weaken the outer walls in general. Gobwin Knob's original design didn't have a gate, leaving them with the options of sending units out via airspace or through the tunnels. As a result, Gobwin Knob was unable to field any heavy units that didn't have the necessary specials, like a dwagon's flight or a spidew's ability to use tunnels.
