I think it was Menkaure's dream journal, since it was on his phone.

But who knows, maybe Grinder and Menkaure have been shacking up lately, so Grinder has been recording his dreams on Menkaure's phone every morning? This being Duvessa's game, I wouldn't be all that surprised.

A big problem with going with Sif with a char like this is that you only get piety for training magic skills, and if you don't have a book yet, you can't train magic skills very much.
