- Find the Book of the Dead
- Bring the Book to the old man
You will find a desperate old man on the market in Yamu. Bandits came and stole a book of his late wife that he cares about a lot. Bayek will offer his help to retrieve it. The man overheard the bandits saying that they gather at the Necropolis, which is south of your current location. When you are in the vicinity you will be prompted to use Senu again to get the exact location. It is going to be a cave-like structure, which is hard to miss.
The Necropolis is also a bandit hideout with one captain to kill and one chest to loot. There are less than ten enemies around. If you have enough arrows, you can easily decimate them or even wipe them out completely stealthy. The book itself will be located in the cave, while the bandits are all roaming outside. Once you’ve picked up the book, it’s time to return to the old man to give back his beloved book.
When we arrive at his house, his daughter delivers the sad news that the old man has passed away and currently receives the rites in the temple nearby. Bayek promises to finish his mission by delivering the book to the man nonetheless. Once the book is delivered and Bayek said his small prayer, this mission will be completed.
