    I take what I desire, for I am THANOS. And right now I desire knowledge.
    I will give you a maps of sorts. The way to finding the evidence of the Council of 12., the data-pads, as they were found by my herald. Retrieve them for me. I require as many tablets as possible from as many universes as possible to complete this step.
    A very valuable asset known only as Devil Mingy, a being with great knowledge of this universe, has begun the deciphering of these "crumbs" as he calls it. His work can be found here.

    N6-P discovered the first 9 data-pads. The remaining 10 were discovered by N6-ARC-L. I suspect that all of the data-pads were being pushed into the universe designated "Legendary" by the Council as a means of preventing myself from claiming them. Foolish A.I.s, they are as flawed as their creators.

    Reading music:



    Data-pad #1 can be found after rally-point Alpha during Winter Contingency. Use the flatbed truck and follow the path until you can fight some straight or right. Choose right. You will then come to this intersection. Choose left:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Goleft11
    You will encounter some resistance in this settlement. After finishing of the local Covie, enter this door:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Datapa10
    Within the above structure, you will find data-pad #1:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Datapa11
    Sometimes a B.O.B. will be guarding the area.




    Data-pad #2 is found in the atrium on ONI: Sword Base:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_12
    Located in the red-room across from where the Troopers are held up:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_13
    You will find it here, laying under the stairs of the 2nd floor above the entrance to infrastructure. Often there is a B.O.B. fighting to #2:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_14




    Data-pad #3 is cleverly hidden at the beginning of Nightfall. When you first begin, head right towards this cliff-structure:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_15

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_16
    On the ground and to the left, camouflaged by some fine blades of green grass, data-pad #3 is a quick find:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_17




    Data-pad #4 is your reward for eliminating Tip of the Spear's Zealot-objective. After you defeat him at this location, drop down the hole as normal to continue:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_61
    When you get to the Plasma-Launcher at the bay doors:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_62
    Turn around and find #4:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_63




    Data-pad #5 finds itself in a rather nonchalant manner on Long Night of Solace:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_30
    When entering the Sabre Control Room, observe the red station to the left:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_31
    Up on this split-level deck and behind the control panels resides yet pad #5:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_32




    Data-pad #6 is actually alluded to by the green arrows that direct you along the path to discovery during your Exodus. After rendezvousing with the Bullfrogs, you will make your through the gauntlet of Covenant:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_58
    Pay attention to the green arrows, this is as far as you go:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_59
    Up on the catwalk is pad #6:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_60




    #7 is like a needle in a haystack on New Alexandria. To get to the building, fly north from the starting point:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach102
    Notice the orbital-elevator:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach107
    The building you seek is between the tall building on the left and the elevator on the right:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach104
    Looking back on where you came from:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach106
    #7 pad awaits here in front of the door:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach105




    #8 is another pad that sometimes has a B.O.B. guarding it. During the Package you eventually make it back to Sword Base's atrium through the maintenance tunnels:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach108
    Continue to Dr. Halsey's lab elevator door:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach109
    Before entering the door, check your left and on the floor is #8:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach110




    A B.O.B. sometimes resides near #9's location on the Piller of Autumn. After exiting the boneyard:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach111
    Make your way through a hallway with many rooms with breakable glass:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach112
    Breaking this glass will get you into the room you seek.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach113
    Over on a shelf in this corner you will find data-pad #9:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach115




    Data-pad #10 was an impressive find on Legendary Winter Contingency. As the Falcons sweep the landing site:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_40
    A cloaked Sangheili attempted to flee with it:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_41

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_42
    I suspect this was to be the next B.O.B. had it been successful in taking #10:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_43




    Data-pad #11 is easily found on ONI: Sword Base, Legendary at the old Farragut Station:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Dplegw10
    Proceed to the top of this roof:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_10
    Sprint-jump across the broken bridge to the cliff:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Dplegs10

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Dplego11

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Dolego11
    And continue straight until you find data-pad #11:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_11




    Data-pad #12 requires a bit of basic platforming on Legendary Nightfall, just after you meet up with some survivors.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_18
    At the 5th green light, start your ascent up the boulders.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_19
    You will then need to make a well made sprint-jump across this gap.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_20
    Continue up the left-side until you reach this rocky bridge you can just drop onto. Notice the pad on the right side by the tree?
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_21
    That's ok, here is #12, easily seen from the bridge.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_22




    #13 is another data-pad that can be missed but lays in the open on Tip of the Spear, Legendary. When you get to the broken bridge, just as the 2nd Covenant AA-turret can be seen, get out of your vehicle:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_65
    Atop of the middle-section you will find the 13th:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_64



    Data-pad #14 is found on the Long of Solace, Legendary, in the Sabre Hangar. Sprint-jump across this gap:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_34

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_35
    Then jump off the middle of the angle and into the "hole" up top:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_36

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_37
    It is possible to sprint-jump across or normal-jump across to the air-duct:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_38
    Follow the duct up to the #14:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_39




    The 15th data-pad on Exodus, Legendary, is found just after you make your way up these steps:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_53
    For this pad you must fly up the supports and to the air-vents:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_55

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_56

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_57
    After 2 to 3 stops, you will find the pad here:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_54




    Data-pad #16 is but one of the easiest finds on New Alexandria, Legendary. From the start, head towards the building directly behind you (south):
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach100
    Proceed downwards:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_99

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach101
    On this tight ledge awaits the pad.
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_97
    Sacrifices must be made. Hop out, collect #16 and call for an evac:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_96




    The only problem with data-pad #17 is the journey home on the Package, Legendary. Grab a jetpack:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach119
    Head towards Turret-A:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach120
    Continue past the turret:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach121
    Onto the observation room:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach122
    Cross the gap using the jetpack:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach123

    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach124
    #17 is located here on the ledge:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach126
    Get back to safety by following the bridge above your head:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach127




    On the Pillar of Autumn, Legendary, data-pad #18 is but a catwalk away from the decomposing ship:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach116
    Head towards the vehicle garage along the roof:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach117
    Around the corner above the garage and find #18:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach118




    A quick run to the tube beyond the building you start in front of on Lone Wolf, Legendary, will net you the 19th data-pad:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_49
    You can go either left or right around the building:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_50
    Go up the ramp and past the Sniper Rifle:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_51
    Hop across the poles and into the concrete tube rests the 19th and final data-pad:
    Step 2: Exposure of the Council of 12 Reach_52
