Proposed Canon

Taming is an action that can be used to Turn a feral Unit to your side, even if you cannot normally produce that Unit type.

The Arkenhammer has the power to Tame wild Dwagons and is often used by Stanley for that purpose.

A Unit can also be tamed without Magic Item or Artifacts, as seen by Vinny taming a bat in TBFGK Epilogue 16 through unknown means. In IPTSF Text 45, Jillian tamed a feral Yellow Dwagon (which she later named Crapsack) by giving the it several High Elves to eat. Duke Forecastle tamed a double eagle by feeding it fish in part 8 of his story.

Some units cannot be fully tamed, but it is possible to make them friendly to a unit that feeds them.

Speculation

"Taming" may be some form of Natural Turnamancy that any Unit may attempt, and can be given various modifiers including using Food and Magic.

Real World References

Tame appears to be similar to the real world action of taming or domesticating wild animals.
