[edit] Proposed Canon

First Mentioned: IPTSF Text 5

Brontoswords are Mount Units used by Goodminton. A brontosword is described as "great lizardly monster", its size as "enormous" and its gait as "flumphing".

Goodminton's Chief Warlord Tommy Firebaugh used a brontosword as his mount, as did his second in command and successor as Chief Warlord, Pom Fritz.

Brontoswords take at least 2 turns to pop in a Level 4 City.

Brontoswords are Heavy Units.IPTSF Text 11

[edit] Speculation

It may be possible to pop plated Brontoswords.

[edit] Real World References

Its name seems to be a portmanteau of "brontosaurus" and "sword".

Its way of moving - described as "flumphing" - may refer to a monster from Dungeons and Dragons universe. But describing movement as a nonsense word is another reference to Jabberwocky especially "galumphing".
