The greatest adventurers document their journeys for posterity, so that one day their tales might be retold and remembered. You are still awaiting your first big adventure, but you are ready.
Your Leather Diary is safely stored in your pack, and the moment something grand happens you will be able to write it down. Personally, you're hoping for a dealing with a dragon--but just a small one. Maybe a kobold, to start.
Epic Armoury's Leather Diary is a medium-sized book with approximately 200 blank pages. Whenever you need to write down information or record data, do it by staying in character. The paper is heavy and textured, gathered into 16-24 page bundles bound at the spine with a fine leather cord.
The cover is made from stenciled top-grain leather which protects the pages inside. It is secured closed using a short leather strap with a brass buckle. Use this diary as the start of a secret tome filled with mysterious or infernal scribbles, a treatise, or simply as a personal in-game diary.
