Lore Items
If you bring up your journal (by pressing "J") and then select the "lore" tab, you'll discover all of the quest items, books, maps, and chants that you've picked up during your travels in the game. For more information on these items, including where to find them, please select the links to the right.

Note: The Broken World expansion pack added 45 recipes to the game. Recipes drop like regular items, but they're considered to be books, and they're stored in your journal. If you're playing the original Dungeon Siege II campaign, then books 37-81 are recipes. If you're playing the Broken World campaign, then books 13-57 are recipes. For more information about these recipes, refer to the Recipe Items section.
