Sea of Thieves’ Tall Tale adventures add yet more depth to this fantastical, piratical world. Immerse yourself in these stories, and the seas may never feel the same again.
You’ll see the lore weaving through landmarks and rock paintings.
You’ll understand the deeper meanings behind dialogues as you learn the backstories of characters you’ve long visited throughout the seas, characters from the past, and characters you’ve yet to meet.
You’ll unlock hidden vaults, lairs, and even an entire island!
Why Read the Tall Tale Journals?
You will discover much of this lore in the Tall Tale books that outline the steps of your journey, and through the people you meet on your journey.
However, you will find some of the richest lore spilled into the pages of each Tall Tale’s accompanying Journals.
As you find and read each journal, you will not only acquire deeper insight into this world, you will also acquire commendations. This will likely interest you, if you seek the Gold Curse.
How to Find the Tall Tale Journals
Often, you’ll be given a clue as to a journal’s whereabouts, but sometimes the only clue is an island name.
Some of these islands are rather massive, and the journal could be tucked anywhere—including some places you might not have known you could go!
Never fear! That is why we’ve created these trusty guides.
Tall Tale Journal Guides—Locations and Text
Originally, we had the locations for all fifty journals in the Shores of Gold Tall Tales listed below. Even with rather cursory directions, it was quite a long scroll to find a specific journal.
That scrolling was poised to get worse… We’d long wanted to provide a bit more detailed directions, as some of these journals were still a bit elusive. We also wanted to provide the journal text.
All Sea of Thieves lore—both inside and outside the game—is cannon. We wanted the ability to read this lore alongside other sources without sailing all over the map, and we thought our fellow pirates might appreciate that, too.
With the added directions and journal text, the scrolling became rather comical.
So, we’ve created individual journal guides for each Tall Tale, all accessible from this landing page—including not only the Shores of Gold Tall Tales, but also all the Tall Tales that have and will come after.
A labor of love, we hope you enjoy these new and improved Tall Tale Journal Guides. Fair winds, me hearties!
