The diary of Jebediah Omnis detail.png

The diary of Jebediah Omnis is a diary obtained from killing Ripper Demons. This diary is only obtainable after miner's journal 5 has been received and read. Players do not have to be on a slayer assignment to obtain this journal. Obtaining and reading this journal is a requirement for the master quest cape.

This journal has a 1/100 chance of dropping. After 1200 Ripper Demon kills, it is a guaranteed drop.[1]

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

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:The diary of Jebediah Omnis.

In Zaros's name I have finally found it, the last remnants of the Ripper that the so called Saint Elspeth destroyed with her blasphemous music. The host was long since dead, having been entirely consumed by the chthonian majesty of the true demon.

Oh the miners have grown suspicious over my motives, but it's is amazing how independent thought is so easily swayed by a mere handful of gold. They do as I command and they dig ever deeper.

This night I will shroud the exit with a simple enchantment and the miners will find themselves entombed within. They will be terrified, the fools, completely unaware that I will help them transcend into something ancient and wonderful.


The wall is sealed and already panic has set in. It's too late for them, I have finished the ritual and the demon flesh has already sought out new hosts. I am exhausted, the ancient rituals require far more strength than I had imagined. More than just runes, I gave of my blood and of my spirit, funnelling that power into the near dead flesh.

But it worked. In Zaros's name worked. The flesh slithered off the corpse of the previous host and vanished into the shadows to find its new host. I almost envy the miners, but they are about to become something greater than before. They will return as mighty warriors of the Empty Lord. Glorious!

With the Ripper demons returned, we will be able to let them loose on the vile forces of Zamorak, who has dared to once again return to this world. The demons will massacre his lieutenants and eviscerate his soldiers. Zaros can deal with the usurper himself when he returns, but I will deliver him that finishing blow as my most devout offering.


I have been chosen.

I woke this morning to see that the Ripper had bonded with my leg, wrapping itself around me and beginning my metamorphosis into something greater. With the power of the demon I will truly be able to serve my lord. Surely he will reward my efforts and my sacrifice. Perhaps I will become a general, or an advisor. Perhaps a high priest.

I dedicate my life, my flesh and my soul to the Empty Lord. Zaros be praised.

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!
  • 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 Ripper Demons are the Miner journals and the Diary of Jebediah Omnis.
  • patch 23 January 2017 (Update):
    • A typo in The Diary of Jebediah Omnis has been fixed.
  • ninja 15 February 2016 (Update):
    • The loot beam value has been changed from 50,000 to 50,001 coins for The diary of Jebediah Omnis.

  • patch 23 November 2015 (Update):
    • The destroy messages of the miners’ journals and Jebediah Omni's diary have been updated to mention the need to read them first.
