Before we begin: If you were actually looking to solve some part of the main questline, you can find the links to those sections below!

We also have a few other important things to note about finding these Journals. The first and most important thing to mention is that you can only obtain while the Fate of the Morningstar Tall Tale is active. If you find them while it's not active, it will not count towards the Commendation awarded for finding them. Secondly, you do not need to find these in order. Although the only way to find them without a guide is by using clues from the previous book, you can plan a faster route to collect them if you use this guide instead.

The best part about this Tall Tale is that, unlike the other Tall Tales, all of the Hidden Journals are on only one island! If you're headed to Old Faithful Isle to follow the fate of the three lost souls, you're in luck! Old Faithful Isle is the location of all the Journals!
