      You CAN also target and break the door they're pushing if you fail the Strength check, by just right clicking and choosing attack. Then they'll rush in.
      Also you can use Speak With Dead to talk to one of the goblin corpses outside and they'll also tell you about Moonrise Towers.

        Kill all the Fists, then proceed to throw the Counsellor until you can actually get her to fresh air. Then the Quest will update!
