You are starting an adventure. And since you seem to be short of the coin required to have a personal bard to record your travels and turn them into song, Beadle & Grimm's humbly offer this journal.
Between its covers are pages that, had you been able to afford a bard, they surely would have used to record your most heroic moments.
At the end, whether your adventure was heroic, tragic, comic, or some combination of the three, you’ll have a tale you can turn to for years. And, should you come into sufficient coinage, good material for an epic song.
This A5-sized (5.8" x 8.3") journal is almost 200 pages for you to keep your plans, record your notes, and manage your adventure. There are sections for tracking magic items, roleplaying bonuses, great moments, embarrassing defeats, and even who still owes you for pizza.
