The Old Journal is a quest item used in the Underground Pass quest. It is found along with the doll of Iban by searching the chest in Kardia the Witch's house up in a platform.

The journal tells the story of Iban and how Kardia raised him as an undead.


Kardia's journal describes how she raised the once dead warrior Iban from death. Using a doll made in his likeness and the blood of a Giant Spider that she had killed inside of a cavern, she performed the "ancient Ritual of Incantia" which was an undertaking that nearly killed her. Successfully completing the ritual summoned the three demons Doomion, Othainian, and Holthion. She intended for these spirits to be the keeper of "Ibans shadow", and to follow his body and protect him from ultimate death. The witch then strangled a dove to further symbolize the dark path Iban had chose for himself in life. After crumbling the doves bones onto the doll she had created earlier, her ritual was complete. The witch took respite in her accomplishments, knowing she had resurrected the body and mind belonging to "the legendary Iban, the most powerful evil being to take human form."

The four elements

Those chapters tell the story of Iban's resurrection, a process that requires Iban's blood, Iban's flesh, Iban's conscience and Iban's shadow. During Underground Pass, the player must undo the ritual: collect the elements, combine them in a doll of Iban, and throw the doll into the Pit of the Damned.
