This is a work in progress detailing everything found out about the coded messages found this past weekend. If anyone makes any breakthroughs with the remainder of the pages please post them under this. I'll add what I have to start.
This is for the pages that were found at the camp past the Dragoon cairn. Slanted text is the fancier script found on the pages. Punctuation has been added for clarity. Spelling has been left as written.

We're in Travance. I've never been here but they routinely find ancient impossible to find treasures and are the source of a ton of magical and scientific breakthroughs. They'l know.
Won't they break your precious code then? R
Probably and if they do it will be because you still sign your name. If they do find the code they'll still be decoding it while we make our escape so stop leaving incriminating messages.
Don't forget that I hired you. You weren't part of the original deal. If the employer finds out you're here he'll probably have me kill you as dead weight.
We've made progress on the translations. It's absolutely fascinating to wonder what the people who wrote these tablets are like. A shame we have to destroy the translation text.
The employer said we had to destroy the text. He never said we couldn't copy down what gets translated.
We know nothing about the employer. It may be unwise to assume it is a he. But you are right. We can copy down a few words and use them for further study.
Or sell them to some archeologist for an even bigger payout once the job is done. Put the notes down here so I have a copy.
Listen I've been thinking. I bet that nut Grimdevere is gonna demand my share of the pay which is your share of the pay for doing all of the work but if Grimdevere got killed in the heist and we turned in the item then we get his share instead.
Yes but he's not likely to die. None of us even went on this heist. It was only the undead.
You know where his camp is thought right?
Yes you can see it if you stand at the mark of the sleeping titan.
The employer hired me to be the muscle and kill who needed killing but no one has needed killing on this job. Maybe it's time we changed that.
You want to attack Grimdevre's camp? He's a necromancer. It's crawling with undead.
Not if you lead them away.
I'd get slaughtered.
Not if I kill him before they get to you and then all of the undead stop being controlled and die.
I won't do it.
Not even for his share of the pay and his research into what we've found? His undead would have told him what the location is actually like. You wouldn't have taken this job if you weren't desperate and hungry.
Fine but if any of this goes wrong I am going to the guard with everything I know.
