Sea of Thieves is getting its biggest and most exciting update yet. Tied in with Season 3, the new “A Pirate’s Life” update will see this swashbuckling world cross swords with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. Not only will this season revolve around a brand new storyline, but it will introduce a host of changes to the game’s world. Along with new story content, players can complete challenges tied to the new Tall Tales. Finishing all of these will unlock new cosmetics for your pirate, so it’s definitely worth beating as many as possible. One of these requires you to find five of the Townsfolk’s Journals in Captains of the Damned.
Townsfolk’s Journal Locations – Forgotten Memories Commendation
Townsfolk’s Journal One
You will find the first journal once you reach the town that’s under siege by Barbosa’s crew. Ignore the ship out front and head into the town until you see a crowd around a well. Go to the back of the well (circled in blue above) and take the key resting on the edge. With the Mercado Key in hand, head to the left towards the locked door and go into the shop. The Townsfolk’s Journal can be found on the stool by the shelves.
Townsfolk’s Journal Two
After you leave the shop where you first see Jack Sparrow, follow the stone path through the streets. You’ll pass a scene where Jack dodges two more of Barbosa’s pirates. Go up the hill and follow the curving path back down until you reach the room shown above. The second Townsfolk’s Journal can be found on a storage crate to the right by the barrel.
Townsfolk’s Journal Three
Continue on your journey through the town until you reach a massive stone wall with a staircase going up the side. Ignore Jack running through the gate for now and follow the stairs up the wall. You will see a lot of crates and barrels, so go to the far end where the two ghost soldiers are looking over the edge. The next journal is rest on some supply crates along the right side.
Townsfolk’s Journal Four
So you can grab journal four during two sections of this mission. The first is if you’re completing the Treasures for Eternity commendation and moving the rowboat through the tunnel. You will eventually come across a scene of several ghost pirates fighting one another. Hop out of the boat and grab the book on the dock to the left before proceeding with your side quest. Inversely, you will come across this scene by following the main story’s path through the fortress. When you arrive at a pully puzzle that tasks you with moving suspended platforms, hop down onto the dock and grab the book. Don’t worry, you can climb back up via the ladder!
Townsfolk’s Journal Five
The final journal is located after you face off against the horde of ghost pirates. When you reach this vista, Barbosa’s ship will barrage the clock tower and knock it down. Hop onto the roof, but do not go to the street below. You won’t be able to get back up if you go too far, so make sure to grab the journal on the roof before heading down! Once you collect this, you will complete the commendation and won’t need to hunt for anymore collectibles.
