Kalibath's journal detail.png

Kalibath's journal is a journal written by the Dragonkin Kalibath rarely dropped by the adamant dragons in the Dragonkin Lair after Hero's Welcome. It is only dropped after players have obtained Strisath's journal, which is also dropped by adamant dragons. The journal details Kalibath's thoughts on the gods, and his plans to strike against Saradomin. Obtaining and reading this journal is a requirement for the master quest cape.

Having a Lorehound summoned with the Lore Helper perk increases the drop rate.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Kalibath's journal.

Interrogation of the prisoner goes poorly. Even using repeated mind-clouding magics and revealing the futility of his situation has not broken him. I may need to switch to more destructive methods, but I am loathe to capture another of the knights from the ill-fated expedition. If too many of them go missing at once then people will make connections.

This, more than anything, is what galls me about this world. We have to deal with 'heroes' constantly launching attacks against us for threatening their False-Using 'gods'. Half of them are mortals bloated with stolen power. The other half are alien entities, talking simulacra and worse that are also bloated with stolen power! How can they think any prayer or sacrifice draws the notice of any god? They make war while the gods are elsewhere, build them monuments they never visit and write reams of fawning scripture that many of these gods are too ignorant to be capable of reading.

The one thing Tarshak is good for is talking, and everything he has said has sickened me on one level or another. He has chased the V User across worlds without end, always failing due to his incompetence. And always he finds mortals bowing and scraping before 'gods' that would slaughter them all to get access to the Stone for a bare instant. He has seen people worshipping giant pigs, giant plants and giant rocks. He has seen them throw their own children into living flames. He has seen them engage in fights to the death with combatants in the billions. He has seen them welcome the obsidian hand of death around their throat with a smile.

The sooner we massacre these deluded fools and the things they worship, the better. This is why I must break this knight and learn Saradomin's flaw. With that, and the method we have learned, we will be able to bring ruin to the widest-worshiped False User in this world.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 23 October 2017 (Update):
    • Adamant dragon journals will now always show a lootbeam.
  • ninja 27 March 2017 (Update):
    • Loot beams for the lore book drops that were recently granted bad luck mitigation have been updated, in order that they clear more reliably (and generally behave like other loot beams).
  • patch 6 March 2017 (Update):
    • We have added bad luck mitigation to some lore drops so that cumulative monster kills shift the drop rate towards 100% once a certain threshold has been reached. This affects drops which have a drop rate of 1/100 (or worse). The affected drops from Adamant dragons are the Dragonkin journals but not Forcae's journal.
  • ninja 15 February 2016 (Update):
    • The loot beam value has been changed from 50,000 to 50,001 coins for Kalibath's journal.
  • ninja 14 December 2015 (Update):
    • Added a lootbeam value of 50,000 coins to the following:
      • Kalibath's journal, Phalaks's experiment log, Sakirth's journal & Strisath's journal.
