In the room "No weapons allowed inside", there is a hidden button that opens the secret room.

Pressing the button on the wall above the second pit will reveal a Teleport which will take you to the secret.
# In the same room with pits, jump down. First, place a Rock on the pressure plate in the west end of the chamber. There is an area with pressure plates behind grates. Press the button on the wall nearby to disable the Teleport (only works if pressure plate to the west is weighed down) and place rocks on the two pressure plates to open one of the grates. The secret is at the back of the area.

At the sacrifice puzzle, after receiving the Iron Key and some Silk Hose, place anything back into the chamber and press the button again.
In the room with spiders that resembles the first puzzle, place the torches in the opposite pattern: torches on walls, none on pillar. This will reveal a short passage with a lever and view of the Iron Door. Pull the lever to open the door, to which you can now return. Remember that to close the trap door, take the Rock off the pressure plate used in the pillars of light puzzle.
After finding the second of Toorum's Notes, backtrack to find that a new area has opened in the NW corner of the room shaped in a loop with a door in it.
# On the wall of the room of Secret 7, there is a hidden button which reveals stairs down to a Slime dungeon. On the far right side of the room is a button which reveals a room with the Green Gem. Place it in the mouth of the demon face near the stairs to reveal a large secret room.
