Yeah without the manual you miss a darn lot. My brother had Pools of radience original on the C64. Apart from the codewheel the journal system allowed you to quickly and painlessly play through the game without having to read all too much text which is really a flaw of many RPGs I think if you just want to pass some area quickly (Like if you're replaying a game maybe because you died and didn't save). The journal system was also great copy protection since people usually didn't think of copying the journal and that thing had quite a bit of information in it which added a lot to the game as well as hints and important information.
