A log or log entry is a recording which is entered into a starships computer record for the purposes of posterity. Officers aboard United Earth and Federation starships are required to record official logs, which is denoted by their rank and position.
Starfleet logs typically noted the stardate at the beginning of the log for the purposes of ordering log recordings. Klingon Commander's log entries used a numerical designation instead of dating. For instance commander Kagh of the IKS Vortha's final log entry was number 5373. (TOS comic: "Against Their Nature")
The Log appears in the Sesame Street "Monsterpiece Theater" production of "Twin Beaks." The property of the Log Bird, the log is able to talk, but cannot answer the question of why the town is called "Twin Beaks." Agent Cookie marvels at the wood's linguistic abilities, and thus insults the Log Bird.
The Logbook is a feature in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings which acts as a sort of in-game journal, where the members of Clan Galbana post several thoughts and opinions throughout their journey, as encouraged by Penelo.
Well, I guess I'll go first. Here we are on a sky continent, and nobody knows what we'll find. It's pretty exciting! I just hope everyone remembers to keep the log going! - Kytes
That aegyl is so rude! Never says "hello", never says "thanks"...never says anything! What trouble did we cause to deserve this?
You cause trouble in your own way, Filo. Just kidding! Don't be mad.
Kytes certainly didn't mince words.
I think I've found the answer to our Ba'Gamnan trouble. I don't want to say any more until I'm sure. After tonight we'll know, one way or the other. - Tomaj
Tomaj told me how it works, but I still don't trust it. I just hope Ba'Gamnan doesn't break free in the middle of the night and come for me... It's kinda scary in my room all alone. Maybe I can stay at Penelo's? - Kytes
I'm sure you'll be fine on your own, Kytes. Llyud, this log is for the entire crew, which you're now a member of, so write something when you have the time. That goes for you too, Vaan. Don't tell me you're too busy captaining to scribble something down! - Penelo
Happy now? I'm writing! I don't think a log check should count as your entry. What am I supposed to write? "Isle of Megalith ahoy! Rudders full to port!"? - Vaan
Rescued fellows from attack. In pursuit of sky pirates. We make for the Fane. May the clouds be below us. - Llyud
Is that all you can say, Llyud? There has to be something more you could write. We are your friends after all. - Filo
No need to bicker! If I don't see you at the grand opening of my shop, then we'll have something to argue about. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this... not literally, of course. - Tomaj
When Vann let us into the shrine, the auralith was out in the open, just asking to be stolen. The aegyl sure are trusting. - Kytes
Strong winds worry at my wings in spite of fair weather today. I know of no aegyl who would steal as sky pirates do. - Llyud
Buisness has been brisk, and I've thought of a good use we can put the sky saloon to. I've also taken in a stray Yarhi. I think there may even be a place for it in my plans. - Tomaj
Master Tomaj, I must object to you calling me "it". I am a master artificer, and you cannot expect to receive my services if I am not treated with the proper respect. - Cu Sith, Master Artificer
So are we going to fight the Judge of Wings? The one Balthier couldn't even beat? - Kytes I'd give Balthier a little more credit. Wouldn't you agree, Vaan? - Penelo
It'll take more than that to stop Balthier. Something bad always happens to the leading man, in the first act, but everything gets straightened out by the end. I'm sure he's already off hunting treasure. He'll turn up before we have a chance to miss him. - Vaan
I almost feel bad for Ba'gamnan. Even those othe bangaa he's always with don't want anything to with him. Buut that's what he gets for terrorizing people all the time. - Filo
Does nobody appreciate all I've done? The shops in the sky saloon, the notice board- I'd have to say I've done pretty well. Because no one else will say it for me!
I appreciate you, Master Tomaj.
- Cu Sith, Master Artificer
I'm full of hidden talents. Maybe I'll teach you someday, Penelo.
Lucky for Filo, Rikken's not as cutthroat as he looks.
I didn't hear Kytes saving us hundreds of thousands of gil. It's not my fault Rikken can't win at his own game! - Filo
Now, now. Play nice. I can see why so many people came to the skysea. The water's beautiful! Don't you wish you could just jump right in? - Penelo
I'll have you know I'm an excellent swimmer. - Tomaj
I can dog paddle! - Kytes
I'm always up for a swim. - Vaan
Well, if you asked me and nobody did, by the way, I think we have much bigger things to worry about! Besides, not everyone can swim, you know. - Filo
Filo's right. We have work to do!
How did this come up again?
So, we're not going?
You tell 'em, Penelo!
All is clear. Rescued Rikken once again. Tomaj reports a sighting of the Judge of Wings. Course is set for Yaphi Caverns. One thing puzzles me. Why would one want to submerge one's self in water? - Llyud
Don't knock it until you've tried it! Anyway, here I am stuck on the ship while everyone's away again. The shops are stocked, the decks are tidy, and there's nothing for the notice board. I think I'll take Cu Sith out for a stroll. Nice day for it. - Tomaj
Of all the underhanded treachery! That spineless snake Ba'Gamnan thinks he can get back at us by taking Filo? Mark my words- he'll pay for this! Make him pay for this, Vaan! - Tomaj
I barely remember being taken, but now that I'm back on this hip I'm osrt of scared. Not so much of Ba'Gamnan as the Judge of Wings. But everything'll be fine, right, Vaan? - Filo
Turns out Rikken was sitting on a goldmine! And now I know just where to go and just what to do! I just don't know why the ship is shaking... - Tomaj
I have to admit, keeping a log is more fun then I thought it woul be. Vaan doesn't seem to be enjoying himself, though. He'd better snap out of it before Penelo snaps him out. - Tomaj
The aegyl are surprisingly good with their hands, and the repairs have gone smoothly. Unfortunately, even with the repairs done the ship won't budge. She's as stubborn as her captain. - Tomaj
Well, the captain may be sinking but the ship should be soaring soon enough. And not a momnet too soon. People are starting to go a little stir-crazy, if you ask me. - Tomaj
I went outside to announce the repairs were done to a decidedly muted reception. How did it come to this? I never really liked Velis, but I can't stand to see Penelo crying. Time to take matters into my own hands. - Tomaj
Turns out Tomaj had the Log the whole time.
I say we let him write the whole thing!
Do you own dirty work!
It's such a relief knowing Fran's alright But what's Balthier doing in the mountains? I guess we'll find out when we catch up with him. The sooner the better. - Penelo
I can't believe the scoundrel had the nerve to try to kidnap Fran! It's time I teach Ba'Gamnan a lesson he won't forget! - Filo
Storms rage around the Pillar of Heaven. Fran is safe and in our number. Never have I spoken to a Viera before, but they share much in common with aegyl. Still, there is something very different about her. Perhaps it is her anima? - Llyud
Sounds like Fran doesn't make any more sense to you then she does to us, Llyud. Don't get me wrong though. I like having her around. I hope she decides to stay. - Kytes
I couldn't agree more, Kytes! All we need is a plan to convince her to stick around... You'll think of something!
I'll think of something? Umm, I don't know about that...
Well, I thought about it, but Fran just doesn't seem like she'll fall for flowers or that sort of thing. Maybe Cu Sith could make her something special. - Kytes
Bad news. Apparently, Cu Sith can't make anything besides weapons. When I asked about those momentos she's been making she just squinted her eyes at me. So much for the plan. - Tomaj
There were tremors in the mountains and nobody's returned since. I searched the caves but couldn't find anyone, and before I knew it the Strahl was gone. I hope for the best but somehow I doubt everyone just got lost... - Tomaj
I'm starting to get worried. I questioned sky pirates, the aegyl, and even had Cu Sith ask the Yarhi, but no one knows where everyone's gone. It's as if they vanished into thin air. But they have to be somewhere... - Tomaj
If this is a joke, I'm not laughing. I know they're out there. Somewhere. Will search again tomorrow.
You must'nt exhaust yourself so, Master Tomaj. They'll be back before you know it.
- Cu Sith, Master Artificer,
I saw Fran and Balthier today. They tell me everyone's alive and well, and that I need only stay put and wait for them to return. I'm too tired to go anywhere, anyway. - Tomaj
Sorry for the scare we gave you, Tomaj. I thought you'd give up on us and be halfway back to Ivalice by now. Well looks like Clan Galbana is back together! - Vaan
Clouds sail Serenely past, but the wind is chill. Warriors I once called ally were among the party that attacked the ship. Had I not et you, I would be as they. I shudder at the thought. - Llyud
I can hardly believe Vaan and Penelo are really friends with the Queen! You told us before, and I believed you, but I don't think it really sunk in until now. I wouldn't want to be on the Queen's bad side. She'd probably throw me in a dungeon! - Filo
I can't believe we're going to see Larsa! If only it were under better circumstances. I almost feel guilty being happy over it.
Don't. I'm sure he'll be happy to see you, too.
I paid a visit to Rabanastre while Vaan and the others were down in Giza. Migelo was worried about everyone, naturally, but he seemed to relax a bit once I told him what had been going on. At least he gave me a warmer welcome than I got in the Sandsea... - Tomaj
To be honest I never thought much of Basch from what I'd heard about the war and the Empire. Now I realise that everything he does is to protect others. One day, I'm going to be like him. - Kytes
We have passed below the veil of clouds and come to Glabados Ruins, a place build for the children of Feolthanos. We aegyl are not without family, but we do not share the bond that you do. Our lives are short. What might those lives be like with such bonds? - Llyud
When I first heard there were people living on the volcano, I couldn't believe my ears. I can only imagine how reclusive the ancient viera must have been to choose such a place. How could anyone live like this? - Tomaj
I keep wondering what I could have done to save Mydia. But there's no time for that now. We have a promise to keep. - Vaan
We breached the Mist-bound gate. I have seen the hatred of my ancestors held against each other play out before me. I have not known war, but I see its sadness and hatred, and I know I must bring it to an end. - Llyud
I think I finally see what Penelo wanted us to understand. Being a sky pirate isn't about treasure. It's about being free, and doing what you think is right. Right now that means saving Llyud, whatever it takes! -Filo
This is what we've all been waiting for. If you're not ready now, you never will be. You are ready, aren't you? Once this is all over, maybe I'll go into business for myself. Lots to be done before then, though! -Tomaj
I know it's a little late to bring this up, but I hope I've been a good captain. Our time in Lemurés has had its ups and downs, but I hope someday we'll look back on it and smile. -Vaan
We who cannot be with you in body will be with you in spirit! Nono will keep the ship in shape, Lord Larsa will watch over Ivalice, and of course, Master Tomaj and I will be waiting for your safe return. Don't make us wait long! -Cu Sith, Master Artificer
So you've reached Feolthanos. There's not much left to write. The rest is up to you. I'm leaving the last page of the log blank, for when you come back. -Tomaj

Logs are items obtained from trees with the Woodcutting skill. Players can burn these logs with the Firemaking skill, or turn them into bows or arrow shafts using the Fletching skill. Normal logs have no requirement to be cut or burned. To make shortbows and longbows, levels 5 and 10 Fletching are needed, respectively. They can also be made into Crossbow stocks at level 9 Fletching.
Members can also turn these logs into bows and arrow shafts with the Fletching skill. It is currently the only log that can be used with the coloured firelighters given as Treasure Trail rewards, producing a coloured fire in either 5 colours, red, blue, green, white or purple.
Logs are also a good way to earn money for low levelled players when sold at the Grand Exchange if you have a full inventory of them.
