The first two scrolls contained Red win endgames. The last scroll contained endgame compositions that ended in a draw. Some of its contents could be found in other ancient manuals but the majority were original works that some experts believe might have been from original Dreams of Divine Positions.
These are the contents of the He Scroll which contain harder endgame puzzles that end in draws. There were several mistakes that were in the book and the Webmaster has tried to find the corrections. As with the two earlier scrolls, the Webmaster has chosen to present the boards five boards at a time.
