The Chronicle of Pagan
Of note is the fact that while Bentic endeavored to be objective in his writings, contained within are many subjects of which he inadvertently transcribed a false account or simply could not have known about. As such, the whole book was written somewhat naively under the influence of the Guardian's deception, to be interpreted by the reader accordingly and put into contrast with information later found in the game.
The European editions of the book were translated to French and German and content-wise were the same, apart from a different color of the cover and the language stated there. The book was of a somewhat smaller format with more glossy paper as well. The Japanese edition again had a different color of the cover, otherwise stayed the same.
The following topics comprise the book:
- History of Pagan
- History of Britannia
- Travelling guide
- Important people
- Shops and money
- The four schools of Pagan Magic
- At the beginning of the book, a table of the Runic Alphabet is shown, described as "Archaic Alphabet". The implications of this remain unclear.
