Morgenstern
You send Willard further into the room, careful not to step in any blood or anything else that could leave tracks. You take a glance at the board hanging over the blood-soaked table; pinned to it are various documents, notes and drawings. Some depict human anatomy, others runes and symbols. This was likely where the bladed man was worked on--everything on the board looks like basic instructions for where to put which arcane symbols and circles. Amidst the scent of human blood, you can make out the smell of metal on top of the table... instruments that were used to cut into him, and to carve the sigils into his body.

Also on the wall are framed scriptures, old pages from an unknown book. You catch a decent glimpse of them--something about the First Womb, the cycle, and the tradesmen. You don't think you have time to read all of it before the cultists come back, however, and you're curious what they're conversing about at the other end of the hall.

You send Willard back into the hall, toward the door on the left. As he approaches it, though, you hear the door begin to open. You hurry Willard back into the restroom just in time to avoid being seen; the door opens, but only one cultist emerges. He makes his way back to the room on the right, shutting the door behind him.

We can maybe have Willard stick around for another minute or two, but I think he's gathered more than enough info, and we now know that leaving The Many alive isn't necessarily a bad thing. Get ready to bring Willard home and give him a cracker.
What are we going to do about the cultist wanting to meet with us? I think we need to try to figure out how to set up some kind of correspondance.

Oof, prolly should've hid behind the desk.. we could have Willard listen in but unless this guy is talking to himself (they are probably crazy enough), not much point. So the only way deeper into the church is gonna be the left door, probably.. Or investigating the pipe room further.
