Benedict's Diary is a book and quest item. It cannot be read directly, but when used the following is observed:

This is the diary of Benedict, a fierce supporter of Amdusias' rise to power.

He goes on and on about how Maxos is too weak and how men as ambitious as Amdusias should have every opportunity to become Dragons.

He despises a certain Fendrel, who lectures other priests about the dangers of defying Maxos, but he's confident this little weasel will be dealt with soon enough.
