The book-binding

Go to a requisition table and craft the item "Book-Binding":

These hundreds of pages of strange conspiracies are all out of order. Bind them into a book to make more sense of them.

Rewards Edit

Notes Edit

  • If recruited, Helsdim can still be found inside his shop at Stone-Bear Hold; the shop's wares will remain available for purchase.

Trivia Edit

  • Much of this codex and A Conspiracy of Dunces is a satire on conspiracy theories. "Ordo Templis Royalis" is a reference to the Ordo Templi Orientis both as a reference to Templars and that Crowley's organization is a staple of conspiracy theory claims. "Ser Ycke" and the Snake-Kings are a reference to David Icke's theory of reptilian aliens.
