The number of volumes is unknown, but it has at least three volumes as in Halo Wars, the player can see entries into "The Punished Deeds, Vol. III" in the Timeline and Events section from the title screen, after unlocking data and events.
- The Punished Deeds notes that Ripa 'Moramee "has no fear of death". The Arbiter, before entering any Relic, sends in a group of Unggoy to check for danger. If there was danger, he would make the Unggoy detonate their Methane tanks.
- An Unnamed San'Shyuum scribe wrote entries about the history of the Sangheili and their Arbiters, the first meeting of the San'Shyuum and Sangheili and the war that followed, and made entries on the Taming of the Lekgolo and the Unggoy Rebellion and how it was ultimately stopped due to the partial glassing of the Unggoy homeworld, Balaho.
