- Foreman Balin's journal - the second fragment
- This morning we discovered small slits in the tunnel walls. The cracks don't seem to be dangerous, but I ordered additional wooden supports placed just to be sure. Rudolph Ferdinand is spluttering, I think he does not enjoy the temperature at this depth. Old Nain Zammenhof claims to hear knocking, I bet he has finally flipped for good. I think we're getting close to a large lode and I've sent for a geologist.
- The Balin's Journal quest item that you can find in the mines is a clear reference to The Lord of the Rings. While exploring the mines of Moria, the Fellowship finds "The Book of Khazad-dùm" written by Balin before he died in Moria, where he was buried.
