The Gargoyles reduce each incoming source of damage by three.

So let's take out string of Runners: 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, 5/5, and 6/6.
The resultant damage they inflict would be 0, 0, 0, 1, 2, and 3,
repsectively (or a total of six damage). The minimum damage a Runner
can inflict is zero, not one. (And there is no negative damage.....)

Rule of thumb -- buff up your Runners! Buy em big, or Gear them up so
they get that way... or, uh, pack an Invisibility or Sleep and don't
worry about it at all.
