This large storeroom is filled with stacks of timber, firewood, and other finished lumber products waiting for shipment. A network of pulleys on tracks covers the ceiling, ropes dangling here and there to aid in the shifting of inventory as needed. Machinery churns along the south wall, while nearby two chutes fitted with winches allow lumber to be hauled up from the holding pools below. Four openings in the ceiling lead to the upper floor; chutes extend through each of these from the log splitters in the room above. Under each opening is a collection bin.
You see four more workers moving wood from the collection bins. One of them was casually resting against the wall on the other side of the room and he's the one who also notices Addo's entrance immediately. He has to shout to give the alarm to his friends and quickly puts his Skinsaw mask.
The cultist B right by the door takes a 5ft step away from Addo and casts something. He disappears like the ones in the undermill did.
The half elf didn't wait for an invitation before zipping past Addo and hurling herself at the nearest visible cultist. She could have been an overeager kid playing tag, if not for the length of steel in her hand the vigor with which she jabbed it through the man.
Avoiding AOO: 19 Attack/Confirm: 35/21 Damage: 37 Will Parry and Riposte baddies that swing at her
When Sumara enters the room and hurls herself to the right of the door, she bumps against something taking up that space. The figure of Cultist D. Her acrobatics wasn't enough to go through his space and provokes aoo from him. He slashes at her face, but he only hits air.
Without losing a beat, she continues her attack against Cultists A and the tip of her estoc comes through the other side. She can't see his face but he staggers and falls down limp in the ground.
Cultist B 27
Cultist D 19
Sumara 17 Rose 14
Rose moves into the room, and the other invisible cultist hits her in the back, right between the shoulders. (-7 Rose) She steps away and shoot at the first guy who was with Sumara, but she's too close of Cultist C when she does that, provoking another AoO for other (-4 Rose).
Her arrow does hit its target and he grunts in pain, but can still fight.
Cultists C tries to slash her again, without luck.

Cultist 12 Gor 9
Gorrendux draws forth from his vestments one of his sturdy wooden wands and waves it over his head, unleashing a glittery blast of holy white light. "Pharasma, mighty Lady of Graves, I beseech thee in our hour of need, BLESS us your humble servants in our struggle against the chaotic forces of Norgorber!"+1 morale bonus on attack rolls (stacks with inspire courage) & saves vs. fear
Sumara stepped in close on the cultist that had tried to elude her and was unrelenting with her blade. "Your darkness will be banished in a righteous letting of blood! Your corruption rooted out! You dishonor the purity of action with terror and perversion!"
Addo, Gorrendux and Mirenia rush to the second floor and move at an unbelievable increased speed.
As you come to the second story floor, you see another of the cultists hastily donning his mask as he leaves what looks like a small bathroom. There's also a closed door you assume leads to another workshop area like the floor below.
Mirenia still has a standard or move action available.
Mirenia continues with her momentum towards the cultist, barely giving them time to shake toilet paper from their shoe. She weaves a Note of Cleaving into her battle song, and her longsword rings true with aunic energy as she engages with a thrust.
Sumara moves to Addo's side to open the door revealing another Skinsaw cultist ready to strike him. His swing goes wide.
The hound archon makes his way to the cultist outside the bathroom and attempts to strike but also misses. He in turn attempted to hit him, but his weapon does no damage! The cultists H is affected by the archon's aura but the other continues to be unaffected.
Everyone with a line of vision past the door can see the floor of this room has a thick carpet of sawdust, penetrated by two large log splitters and saws set up over openings in the floor. Another pair of openings is fitted with winches and ropes to raise and lower uncut lumber from below.
The cultists quickly realize Addo and the hound are too much of a defensive type and change targets. Cultist I manages to strike Mirenia (-5 dmg). The other fails to reach Gorrendux.
Cultist H Rose 14
Gorrendux shifts his stance carefully (5-foot step), takes careful aim at the northern enemy (Cultist I). Inspired by Mirenia's words, the crossbow bolt jets through the air and into the Cultist for 5 piercing damage.
Mirenia grunts as her blood is drawn, but prepares to counterattack...only for her target to be turned into a pincushion. Giving Rose a grateful nod, she then rushes up the stairs to the next floor quickly.
Mirenia comes to the upper floor to find it... empty?
A thick layer of sawdust covers the floor, mounded nearly a foot deep in places. Workbenches sit here and there in the room, their surfaces
cluttered with saws, hand drills, planers, and other woodworking tools. But she also notices there are blood stains in the floorboards and bits of gristle remain caught in several tools here. It reminds her of the murder scene back in the Sandpoint sawmill.
Right then, she notices casting from somewhere in the back of the room. The loud noise from the logsplitters below keeps her from figuring out the exact words. She doesn't see anything or anyone at this moment.
