"These skilled warrior fanatics can fire arrows at distant enemies with every expectation of doing terrible damage."
These Cultist Zealots are armed with powerful bows that can send arrows into enemies at a surprising, and fatal, distance. They can also bombard foes with whistler arrows, projectiles that are just as lethal as normal arrows but much more terrifying. These Zealots need careful handling in the presence of the enemy. They are not specially trained to fight in melee and are likely to suffer if they are attacked by fast-moving enemies. Because of their small numbers, they will not last long if they are left in close combat, regardless of any friendly support.
