I appreciate the mechanical action at play, and can understand the use of tricking the populace into thinking the doors opening was an act of god, but
I've got to ask: why not just have a few guys down in the basement opening the doors themselves? Keeping the truth hushed up would be important, so
you would want as few people as possible to know that the doors open via a secret mechanism, but even with this fire/water method some people are
still going to know. You need people to build the underground room and equipment, someone to maintain it and replace the water as it evaporates,
repair ropes, leaks in the pressure vessel, and lubricate pulleys, etc.
So if you are already letting several people in on the secret, why not just have them open the doors themselves and do away with all the other
