It is stated in the Gobwin Knob entry that only light units could enter the tunnels. Yet a FoxMUD Wiener-Rammer did enter the tunnels, attacked Parson Gotti, and was summarily croaked by him (much to the shock of the FoxMUD Warlord commanding it). This implies that Wiener-Rammers should be classified as a Light unit, yet also have a high damage attack comparable to a heavier unit. This is logical considering that they seem to be designed specifically to force breaches in gates and walls. However, it should be noted that Weiner-Rammers may not necessarily be Light units simply because of this incident, as Sizemore did state that the tunnels were "So porous anyone could walk in." This may mean that Level 1 tunnels allow any size units in, even Heavies.
Apparently resistant to being uncroaked under normal circumstances, even by a Master Croakamancer. This may be a common feature of being a mount or a siege unit, or may be special to the Wiener-Rammer, but can be decrypted by an attuned user of the Arkenpliers.Erf-b1-p146
