Diaries are a special kind of collectible found scattered throughout the maps of Dead Island: Riptide. The diaries belong to John Morgan. Collect them to learn of his past misadventures on the island of Palanai.
Collecting all of the diaries also contributes towards completion of ‘The Collector’ and ‘The Hoarder’ achievements that are worth 15 and 30 gamerscore respectively. The diaries can be pretty hard to find, as there are a small number and it’s a pretty big island.
