The room was a narrow passageway, a 100 meters in length that lead to very tall double doors. The doors seemed to be a solid mass of steel, and meters thick.
“Okay Herb, how do we open these doors?”
Herb shrugged and said, “I don’t know. I was hoping that it operated on “Magick” or something.”
Sean stepped toward Herb, who took a step back, “What do you mean “Magick” or something?”
Loggar spoke up, “We think that behind here is another ceremonial chamber connecting to three other passage ways. The doors are made of a material that blocks most T-wave scans. We’ve seen several, we think, passages.”
“Great, just great!” Sean said. Then he heard someone yell, ‘We’ve found them!’
“Herb!” Sean shouted.
“Okay, okay, stand there.”
Sean did so.
“And touch the door.”
Sean did so but the doors remained closed, however, the group heard some sort of mechanical click. Sean looked back and saw about five minions at the far end of the chamber. They started walking toward them.
“Damn you Herb! Think man.”
“Okay, okay, okay. I remember in the text that there was something about speaking some words to open the door.”
Loggar said, “Sean, this place is full of technology that allowed the Elders to perform “Magick.” That’s how they lived their lives.”
Sean bit his bottom lip. Damn these foolish people and their equally foolish ways. “Okay, what do I say?”
Herb and Loggar shrugged.
“What?” Sean gasped.
Robin stared at them in disbelief. “You guys are the local scientist here and the expert witches, you’ve got to know the words!”
Herb shook his head. So did Milkens and Loggar.
Kurp grunted, walked over to Sean and whispered in his ear.
Sean said, “You’ve got to be kidding?”
