Defenses: The normal defense against gargoyles is a loud verbal acknowledgement of their existence (i.e. Creep, Weirdo, One step closer and I smack your dentures out, etc.) On occasion, over time, a gargoyle will become immune to the verbal acknowledgements and venture down to the pool or deck level. (Tier 1 Gargoyle). In these cases the best defense is to move quickly from the area as they are slow and can’t catch up without blowing a hip out.
