Raizenbrayne takes his ear away from the door and shrugs to the others, then gets back into position. He then motions for the single person at the front to force the door open, and wiggles his fingers to show that he has his spell ready.
Skeggi will also help. The door bursts open to reveal a 10' wide 10' long passage that comes into the base of a T, however, the passages immediately turn west again (so basically there's a 10' wide wall 20' west of the door, with 10' passages going to either side.
I'll assume you advance to the intersection and look down both westward 10' passages, they extend but 10' each before turning towards each other again. The southern section has a 10'x10' nook to the south in the center. There is a 10' wide passage leading west.
So basically, this is a 30'x30' space with a 10'x10' block in the center, similar to the space you just left, with a 10'x10' extension in the center of the south wall, and a 10' passage heading west from the center of the west wall.

"The layout of this room is identical to the one we just came from. Maybe there's a secret door in this room as well," says Raizenbrayne. He moves to the north side of the large 10'x10' block in the middle of the room.
"I'll examine this north side of the block for secret passages, if others want to search the other faces before we move on." He uses the hilt of his dagger to sound out the wall and pries around for loose stones or seams with his fingers.
I'll take the south side of the block and also feel around for loose blocks. Can someone else stand guard?
Are the walls uniform stonework or is there any engraving on it? Any cracks?
You search the walls of the stone block. It is uniform stonework, the blocks are roughly 1' wide and 6" tall, and 8" thick (judging at the corners). At this point, consider that you have done a search of the block for secret doors.
Ok, so heading West, 20' then turn North, then immediately West, then 10' West, then turn South, 10' South, then turn East then turn South, then 10' South, then opens into a the North side of a 30'x30' octagonal room with a statue of Set in the center, and maybe a door in the South wall.
"Hm. I have a feeling this isn't your run of the mill, assembly line statue."
Raizenbrayne enters the room to examine the statue closer, watching carefully to see whether it moves. He checks for writing on the base, secret containers or drawers, and tries twisting and pulling on different features of the Set's statue: the nose, the ankh, the staff, arms & legs, poking the eyeballs—whatever might trigger a secret mechanism.
