History of the Order detail.png

The History of the Order is a book created from order journal pages. There are 22 pages in total, and whenever one is found, it is added automatically to your book. It chronicles the Order of Ascension's history. After all the pages have been added, the book may be used with Ocellus Virius for extra information. Completing this journal by finding all its pages is a requirement for the master quest cape.

The journal can be added to a bookcase in a player-owned house.

If the player has an unfinished book in their bank and they receive another page, they get another copy of the book in their inventory which stacks with the one in the bank.
