Journals are readable Stationary Items that can be found hidden all around The Sea of Thieves. These Journals usually uncover lore behind certain characters, artifacts or Ships. Most readable Journals have Commendations tied to locating and reading them.

Merrick's Journals[edit | edit source]
Merrick's Journals were a set of journals added during The Hungering Deep event (and modified shortly), which provided clues to helping the players discover the location and summoning ritual for the first Megalodon. During the event, each one generally had two entries, which would lead the player to an NPC, who in turn would lead the player to the next journal. In total there were three journals in order: XX, V, and I.
Wanda's Journals[edit | edit source]
Wanda's Journals were a set of journals added during the Cursed Sails event, which detailed Wanda's experience in the creation of cursed cannonballs. While Salty was residing in Crescent Isle, he mentioned a few islands that he and Wanda visited that could provide clues to his circumstances.
Umbra's Journals[edit | edit source]
Umbra's Journals were added as part of the Legends of the Sea event, which added details around Umbra and past events on the Sea of Thieves and were placed all across the world. If you would like to read these journals, they can be found on the Legends of the Sea Bilge Rat Adventure page.

Tall Tale Journals[edit | edit source]
Each Tall Tale has five Journals telling additional background stories to the Tales themselves. These Journals are generally hidden at Locations that the Tall Tales lead players to.

There are Commendations for discovering and reading all of the Journals in each Tall Tale. If you would like to read these journals, they can be found on their respective Tall Tale page.
Non-Interactable Journals[edit | edit source]
There are countless number of journals that are used for set dressing throughout the Sea of Thieves, though some of them may be of interest.
