The Codex of Wisdom and Destiny (volume 2) is an extensive and heavily encrypted document apparently left in the keeping of the Spirit Court by Martel the Builder. At least six copies are known to exist and at least one more is likely. Copies of the book were delivered to various people and locations within Marath Suvla on April 14, 1212. No two copies of the book are precisely the same. Each contains some (but not all) of the pages listed below. Some of the pages are immediately legible; others are encrypted in a variety of ways.
