Courtyard > Enemies > Gargoyles

Greetings, apprentice. Come to see our little rogue's gallery, have you? Yes. Well, after all - why not? It's important to know about those that might harm you, and there are certainly enough individuals in the City who would wish to harm us. The ones who don't know about us see as a threat, and the ones that do know of our existence - well, sometimes I think they almost see us as trophies. At any rate, best you'd learn their weaknesses before they find yours.


Classification: Elemental(?)

Location(s): varies

Variations: numerous

Known Weaknesses: none


A foe from our darkest hour, the Gargoyle is one we'd rather forget if only time would allow it. Knowledge, however, does not die - it merely becomes lost.

Gargoyles are essentially stone golems (see Earth Elemental) brought to life by Gamall during the Days preceding the Unwritten Times. These gargoyles were then set to protect her home as well as seek out and destroy Garrett. Fortunately, they failed at both tasks.

We had no chance to study the creatures, but we know from Garrett's testimony that they possessed at least rudimentary intelligence and were capable of detecting and killing an intruder. Various statues were brought to life at the time, so of course there were numerous variations among the individual gargoyles.


Gargoyles were completely immune to any conventional weapon. While in Gamall's lair, Garrett uncovered a glyph which allowed him to unravel the magicks animating the stone whenever he struck a gargoyle with his blackjack. Beyond this, however, the creatures had no known weakness.

Threat Assessment:

After the activation of the Final Glyph, all glyphs were destroyed. Since Gamall used glyph sorcery to animate the gargoyles, they were affected as well, instantly turning to brittle stone. The creatures are no longer a threat, but during the final days of the Dark Ages, they were considered a very high threat indeed.
