There are a ton of secrets to be found in The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes. Among these secrets are 10 journal entries left behind by explorers who visited the caves in the past. They are long gone, but the information they learned still exists. Here’s where to find all the Randolph Journals and get the achievement The Statement of Randolph Hodgson.
During the chapter titled The Temple, you will take control of Rachel. She and Eric rappelled down into the temple and discovered that someone was here before them. Once you gain control of Rachel, go inside the tent and check the table on the right to find the first journal.
After the Fall
Later on in the game, you will take control of Jason during the chapter titled After the Fall. He and Nick walk down a corridor and come across a tripwire. Succeed at the QTE and disarm it. The journal entry is next to the spotlight in the room.
The Slayer chapter has you controlling Nick and being accompanied by Eric. The two men will come across a pool of blood in a cutscene and make a comment about it. After the cutscene, turn to the right to find the third journal entry.

Bloodbath pt. two
Later in the Bloodbath chapter, you will find out that Rachel is still alive after plummeting down a chasm. She awakes in a blood-filled area surrounded by skeletons.

In the chapter, The Signal, you will control Nick and have the objective of getting the radio working. You will take control of Nick outside of the temple. Go to the right of the stairs.

Once you take control of Jason, walk forward until you reach the area filled with stalagmites and stalactites.

After following Salim and Jason for a while, the rest of the group will join them. They will crawl under some rocks and enter the Star Chamber. This is where the Strange Aeons chapter starts.
