Bloodstained Letter[edit]

Location: The Keep Depths Level 1

Quest: while doing "The Breached Keep"

"My dearest Jonathan, I hope this finds you well and that life at Bastion´s Keep is not too difficult. Arthur is growing up to be just like his father. I´m happy to hear you´ll be back in time for his birthday, and I´ll be praying every night for your safe return. - Brielle"

Ghom's Log[edit]

Location: The Larder top right corner there's a corpse with the log on it

Quest: The Breached Keep

"The human prisoners are panicking now? They must have noticed that fresh meat only comes after one of their number is dragged away, screaming... This will not hold. Slaughter the ones who starve themselves and feed them to their hungry friends. When those ones are fully stuffed... I will be ready to dine."

Journal of Hansan Haile, Captain[edit]

Location: Bastion's Keep Stronghold This book is by the feet of the vendor Vidar the Collector in a keepsake box

Quest: Any Quest

"Day 9: Young commander Calderos believes that the demonic scourge will flee before a bloody show of righteous force. He intends to lead a charge from our fortifications tomorrow. Calderos can commit suicide by stupidity if he wants, but I'll be damned if I send my lads with him."

Leah's Journals[edit]

Parts 13-16 are found in Act III in The Armory. [e]
Part Text Found on Quest
13 We've reached Bastion's Keep, but holding the Black Soulstone together takes up all of my time now. Sometimes I think of the wounded soldiers and their families outside... but then my concentration fails and the spells weaken. I must stay focused and trust my friend to save the keep and its people. The Siege of Bastion's Keep
14 The days are hard. If it weren't for my mother standing beside me, I don't know what I'd do. She even watches the stone for a few hours each night so I can rest. Sometimes I dream I'm in New Tristram with Uncle Deckard again,'s hard to wake up after that. Turning the Tide
15 Adria tells me that our friend has beaten back Azmodan's armies and the keep is safe now. I... I almost can't believe it. The essences within the soulstone grow angrier - fiercer. They're fighting against me every m oment now, and their darkness creeps around the edges of my mind... I must remain strong. The Breached Keep (after finding The Keep Depths lvl 2)
16 I thought I was going to die when I saw the demons' rage escape from the soulstone. Tyrael and my friend fought them, but I couldn't help. It was like I was watching them through a haze. What is the soulstone doing to me? Azmodan must die soon... Then I will be myself again. Heart of Sin

"Transferring to Bastion's Keep is as dull as I imagined. The soldiers spend most of their time gambling. I guess this is what I should expect from this hollowed-out rock, a shadow of its former glory. Still, I am here to provide for Anna. I hope she is well. - Guard Morgan"
