Search the Collector's Domicile
Max says the journal was last possessed by a book collector whose residence was part of a small community directly north of Edgewater. He has marked the location on your map.

You found an entrance to the river cave mentioned in the collector's note. The book must lie somewhere within.
Return to the Vicar
You've found the Journal of M. Bakonu. Return to the Vicar.
