Will be arriving in a new town tomorrow, though. There I hope the find the proper setting to continue conducting these Symbol experiments. I think I'm almost done with the Decoy experiments. At this point I think I'm just going to continue employing them for practical use so that I can observe from afar.
Known Decoy Results:
New Decoy+New Attire+New Mask=About five hours of distraction.
Old Decoy+Repeated Attire+Reused Mask=Minutes at best.
Old Decoy+New Attire+New Mask=Roughly two hours of successful distraction.
However, on the next go I will try out a brand new Decoy with new attire and a new mask. I will hold off using religious symbols for one night as I am curious to how the construct will react to a barrier made up Ichthus-Operator Signs. Will it have the effect of both in which the creature is held back AND is incensed to violence? If so, I may need to change out the binoculars for a telescope. Or will the attempted combination just muddy the ffect of both enough that it's ineffective like the others I've tried, in which case the construct will walk right past. Either way, I hope for repeated success with the combination of a new decoy, new clothes, and new mask.
