To earn progress interact with a tablet. Once the tablet is active, it will apply a boon that lasts for 3 minutes. Within this three minutes, you will need to collect four forgotten lights. After collecting the orbs, return to the tablet to decipher what it says.

All the orbs are fairly close to the tablet you interacted with. They will always be in the same place for the same tablet also, so the more you do this, the easier it will becomes. If you run out of time, just activate the tablet again to reset the orbs.

You need to repeat this task for each tablet three times. Your first time through will complete scroll one. Once all the pieces are deciphered, further interaction will unlock verses for scroll two, then scroll three as you progress.

Note: It’s highly possible that if you want to earn verses for another scroll you will need to allow Augury Rock to reset and cycle. Interacting with he previous tablets within the same session doesn’t seem to progress other scrolls in the achievement.
