I am a quest junkie, so this limited system of quests at one time will take some getting used to. I'm not totally opposed to it, I'd have to actually play with it to see.
I really do like the idea of a journal in game. I think there are two ways that it can go that would be really useful. Having a type of searchable log of information and things you have found in game would be very nice. Perhaps a file on your computer that will keep track of important places, people and things. As you talk to npc's or explore the world, you can refer back to your log and brush up on something you might have forgotten.
Also, it would definitely be good to have a diary of sorts that you could access in game (and possibly out of game as well...maybe something that you could go to on the forums when you log into your account). This would be a perfect place to jot down theories or other thoughts that you get while doing things. I know a lot of times I'll want to go back and do something after I finish whatever I'm working on, and this would be a good way to keep track of those things.
