The Crafting Note is an item that can be clicked in the player's inventory to add a crafting note to your journal. A crafting note in your journal can be referenced when crafting an item, but it is not necessary as it is possible to craft something you don't "know" how to craft.


The Crafting Note is generally obtained by buying it from Inmates, but they can also be found:

  • In desks
  • In an inmate's inventory after beating them up


  • Despite the fact that the crafting note is a contraband item, guards do not rush to pick it up if dropped on the floor as they will with other contraband. Instead they will treat it as a legal item and pick it up after several passes by it.
  • The crafting note can describe recipes that are exclusive to prisons other than the one currently being played.
