The Great-Grand Father's Diary, abbriviated as GGF's Diary in the menus due to character limitations, is a key item found in EarthBound Beginnings. It is the diary of George, Ninten's great-grandfather, and is located in the basement of Ninten's house
Its purpose is left unspecified when first gotten, but it is later used to provide Ninten with the answers to what two pink rock-like objects known as "God's tail" telepathically ask him at different points of the game.
The first rock is located in a cave east of Choucream Zoo, but is guarded by two policemen, and cannot be accessed until Starman Jr. has been defeated. Using Telepathy on the rock will result in it asking him "who has lost his tail?", and if Ninten has the diary in his possession, he will manage to find a matching entry and say the corresponding answer out loud, being "the forgotten one of the ship that sails the cosmos", which leads to him being teleported to Magicant.
Another rock is located in the monkey-filled ruins of Yucca Desert, and will ask him the same question as the previous one. The sequence of words that triggers the teleportation to Magicant is however slightly different, being "the one who lost his tail", "the forgotten one" and "the ship that sails", in that specific order. This will as before take him to Magicant, but when leaving through the Magicant Underground, he will be taken to a cave located northwest of Youngtown. Teleporting to Magicant the second time is however not compulsory to finish the game.
