Grand Pagoda Library

The Grand Pagoda Library is the Hylotl themed mission, possessing a Difficulty Tier of 4. It takes the player through the ruins of a sunken underwater library.

The library appears slightly ruined as some areas have flooded rooms, large piles of books, and leaning bookshelves. The player is guided through by a hologram of the young Hylotl scholar Koichi. As they travel deeper into the library there are hostile Occasus cultists. At the end of the mission, the player will come across the Occasus founder and leader, Asra Nox, and fight her in a duel (see below). If the player wins, they will proceed to take the Hylotl artifact named The Mirror of Wisdom, as well meet as the Hylotl behind the hologram, Koichi, face-to-face. The player will add the artifact to the Ark and recruit Koichi to Esther’s cause.

Guaranteed Treasure

Boss Encounter

The mission's boss is Occasus cult leader Asra Nox. She has an easily memorable attack pattern, but that does not stop her from being a challenge to even experienced players. See the Asra Nox article for a full breakdown of her attacks/phases.

Secret area

Swimming along the island's bottom right will reach a cave with a chest with Valorous Helmet and Letter from the Librarian. Swimming further along the building's bottom right will reach a Pressurised Airlock Door which leads to a room. Going into the room will trigger the SAIL message 'Having analysed the data, I conclude it should have been impossible to reach this room alive. Congratulations on your stubborn perseverance in the face of reason!'. The room has a crate with The Slibbler and a chest with Snorkel. The other Airlock can't be opened.


The codices Ironbeak's Journal, The Slibbler, Freedom, Miniknog Issued Joke Book, and Never Invite a Novakid to Tea are all fan entries that won the "Take a Look, it's in a Book" contest. With exception of Never Invite a Novakid to Tea (which can be found in Novakid towns), they are all mission exclusive, alongside the mission related codices.
