The last entry of Daniel's diary.

Daniel's personal diary entries are found throughout the castle in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. They are one of the primary sources of knowledge of Daniel's actions before he drank the Amnesia potion.

The diary itself appears to have been destroyed and the pages ripped out and scattered throughout Castle Brennenburg by either Daniel himself, Alexander, and/or Gatherers.


One part is found on the table in the "Rare Books" section of the Archives, another is found on the desk in the "Study" room, and a third is found in the "Maps" section. Gathering all three will trigger a cutscene.

  • There are few diary entries scrapped from the final release of The Dark Descent:
  • Despite being an Englishman, Daniel uses the American English spellings of several words. This is likely just an error on the game's writers' part.
