Journal The journal is the best source of information within the game.

Whenever a new entry is added to the journal, the journal icon will change to a glowing blue. It is well worth reading these updates as, very often, information critical to plot advancement is supplied in this manner. Left-click on the scroll icon, or press J to open the journal.
