I don't remember if I got that one yet. It sounds really interesting and sad. I'm going to have to go to my books and look to see if I got it yet. Thanks for the post. I would probably have totally over looked it otherwise.
Ah yeah, I seem to remember getting that event once - was quite awesome indeed. Nice voice-acting too

It has been said... that in the end of all things... we would find a new beginning. But as the shadow once again crawls across our world... and the stench of terror drifts on a bitter wind... the people pray for strength and guidance. They should pray for the mercy of a swift death... for I've seen what the darkness hides!
For people wondering, I believe it spawns in that pit of blood right before the exit of the first lvl of the halls of agony. Maybe second level, not sure. It's the one that has a door you open, then go through the door, or you can continue around and go down some steps.
Anyway, it's journals like this that make me confused when people say this game is as dark as D2. I mean sure, if you're talking about color tone, but if you're talking about psychologically, this game seems WAY more disturbing, just cause they added so much more fluff(?) this time around. Like this journal, or the scene where Leoric beheads his wife, or the one where Ghom is feeding prisoners to other prisoners to fatten them up so he can eat them.
You can only get this when the event in the pit by the exit of lv 2 halls of agony spawns. If you get it, then you hear someone calling for help as you near the door outside the dungeon. As you go to free him from the iron maiden, a unique monster spawns. After you kill him you get the diary.
