"We can't stop now, too many people are counting on our success"! A statement such as that was by no means necessary, both knew the weight of the mission. "We have made it this far and you are sure the board is on this floor"
With that said, the Dracon began to pound on the door. His hopes are simple, make enough noise someone would come to investigate, not finding anyone there since both Aelyrians were currently invisible, and hopefully gain access past the doors.
That's about as far ahead as the Rose Knight was thinking at this point, there was no sense aborting the mission if a chance still remained.

"Ready yourself my friend, we are not dead yet!"

While Pescado’s proposal sounded with the voice of reason, Zardysseus’ plan was far less imaginative. With balled fists employed as his instruments of destruction, he banged wildly against the sealed doorway, sending enough echoes up and down the huge stairwell that it could only be presumed that it was a matter of time before both he and his compatriot were discovered, even with their temporary shrouds of Invisibility. He created enough noise to draw the attention of virtually anyone in the nearby vicinity to them.

And somehow, it worked.

A strange clicking sound not unlike the grinding of a gadgeteer’s gears or the unlocking of a bolt could be heard behind the doorway. Click click click. It continued for several seconds, followed by the heavy thud of something else that was moving but still could not be seen. And then, without warning or explanation, the door parted from the middle, both sides being pulled apart to either side of the entrance, revealing a long metal bridge large enough for three orcs to comfortably travel abreast.

Waiting at the doorway were two Xet, one that resembled a walking beetle and the other an overgrown fly. The former was garbed in heavy black armor with rigid spikes, or at least, that’s what appeared to be covering its bulbous body. In one of its hands was a crimson rod not unlike the silver ones that the Praetorians carried. The other Xet self-levitated with its swiftly-moving set of wings, its large, bulging eyes sweeping from side to side as if sensing that something was amiss. It, too, carried a similar weapon.

The flying creature said something in its native language, a chittering noise that was high-pitched, fast, and indecipherable. Its companion, the overgrown beetle, responded in like kind, though its voice was much deeper.

Somehow the unconventional method worked and the doors opened. Although over the years the Dracon has seen many different configurations of the Xet alliance, these two were one he has yet to encounter.

The Xet were looking for something but yet had made any inclination that they could see or sense the two cloaked Aelyrians.

The Rose Knight knew he needed to gain access to the other side of the door and assumed his shaman companion would do the same. As quietly as possible, he moved to enter the doorway and used great care not to bump or touch the guards.

Zardysseus’s thought was to just gain access to the other side and wait for the door to shut, and then follow the guards from a safe distance. The Sharman’s skills of detection had led them this far, and the Dracon Knight felt positive that his skills would continue and the two would find the Motherboard.

The Dracon would raise molten lava if that what it took to destroy the Xet’s ability to pin point the enemy and hopefully tip the scales in the Empires direction.

His companions optimism was well appreciated, and even though Pescado's realism thought a logical solution, his companion was definitely much less imaginative. The saurid listened as the banging upon the door was abruptly stopped when the doorway slid open. Figuring his companion would slide through one side of the opening, Pescado did his best to slide through the other side, not wanting to touch either of the Xet that happened to be looking around, confused, for whatever had created the loud banging noises.

If they managed to slip by, Pescado would quickly turn around, and utilize the spell of Objectify to create the imagery of a renegade saurid in front of the Xetan duo. Hopefully this would add to their confusion. If they exited the doorway towards the Objectified saurid, Pescado would quickly look for a way to shut the doors behind them. Hoping they'd shut automatically, he'd quickly state, "Seal the doors."
