Journals are bound sheafs of 50 pages, bearing the mark of its owner. Only a journal's owner can write within a journal, though anyone can read it. Some classes have the ability to pen their words in a special script, unable to be understood by others.
The generic, "personal" journals, composed of vellum pages bound in leader, are sold within Rurin's shops in most cities; however, other denizens have been known to supply them as well. A variety of decorative journals are also widely sold in locations ranging from Cyrene's Prosperian Athenaeum to the distant trade port of Zanzibaar. Suthaine, the bookbinder of Arcadia, can custom-bind personal journals.
