The current coordinates bring you to the beginning… The location where the quest begins. To complete the quest and sign the Book of Secrets you need to find the code word and input it in the secret portal (certitude). If you input the correct code, you will be rewarded with the location of the Book of Secrets. If you do not, you will need to attempt again. May your fortunes be favored…

As you enter the double portal and pass through the gate, you are greeted by a realm to be discovered. You will encounter many strange and wonderful things.

As you turn to the left, you have two emblems that meet you as you pass through into another area of the realm. Take note of the toes and the sails on the two emblems. Interestingly enough, as you enter this part of the realm, all of the people are small. The chairs, work areas are all for people of small stature. As you move past the stacks that carry all of the stories of this part of the realm, take note of the stars and the moons on the stacks as well as the number of stacks. These are multiples of the number you seek. Along the back wall you will encounter two Knights of the Realm. The larger knight's Chestplate and helmet have similarities in the round rivets. Make a note of the number. As you journey back past the stacks you will be leaving the land of the little people.  

Exit the portal on the right. You will find yourself on the upper battlement of the castle. When you move to the metal rail on the battlement, look to the left. Make a note of the half pillars you see. Turn around and you will notices there are two portals to re-enter the castle. Choose the right portal.

As you enter, turn to the right and move along the back wall of the castle. In the far corner ahead of you, you will notice blue royal pillows for resting. Make a note of the number.

As you move through this set of stacks, you will find a group of stacks dedicated to the youth of the realm. At a GRAPHIC point, make a note of the number of z’s.

The clues you have gathered will lead you to the code word. Here is how to put it all together. All of the numbers gathered should lead you to a single number. That number is the number of stacks in the section you need. The name of that section is the code word.

Inspiration for this cache came from BlindReff’s GCK9XB “Treasure and Scavenger Hunts”

When you input the correct codeword, you will be given the coordinates, but what you need is the BONUS INFO.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
