Hatchet-face Ned's Logbooks
2,100 XP each, 6,300 XP bonus for finding all
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 1:Found by the captain's wheel of the Sea Witch (the boat just southwest of the entrance). Ahraatz-Ri is dead - and so is Captain Tew. 'Tis a black day for the Blood Tide. Yet this black cloud may still have a golden lining for old Hatchet-face Ned. If I can make to the Cove before the others, Ahraatz-Ri's treasure will be mine!
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 2:Found on an island in the southwest part of the map. (climb up from the water to the larger island then cross over to the smaller island across the small bridge up top) I heard tell of the booty when last I shipped with the Blood Tide. Ahraatz-Ri and Captain Tew were talking about it one night up in the forecastle. Been drinking too much of the Old Sully's, they had. Said they'd laid treasure by in Three Barrel Cove, just in case things ever went wrong - enough treasure to last a man through three lifetimes of shore leave.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 3:Found on a cliff a bit west of the entrance to "The Legend of Two-Toed Tobias." Of course I weren't the only one who heard them talk about the treasure. By now every seadog from Stormreach to Sharn has heard the tale. nobody dared touch a coin of it while Azraatz-Ri was alive, for fear he'd turn them into something terrible. But now ... well, all's fair in love when the wench is dead. Or however that one goes.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 4:Found at the pirate camp in the middle of the island, by the campfire. I was resting me eyes in a shady glade when the serpent-folk came a-slithering out of the jungle. Yuan-ti in Three-Barrel Cove! Been an age or more since their kind have been seen in these islands. Could be they're after the treasure too. I'll not be the one to find out, for I left the spot as quick as me feet would take me. Hatchet-face Ned doesn't intend to end his life as an offering to the Devourer!
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 5:Found on one of the rocky ledges on the path to the Fire Caves, north of the zone entrance. Tis as I feared. Every buccaneer on the Thunder Sea has come to Three-Barrel to try for the treasure. Bluebeard Amanatu, Captain Silverlance, Old Hardtack from Droaam. Seems like every day there's another pirate airship over the island. I run for the trees the instant I see one. Not even the heartiest old salt can stand up to a magefire cannon.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 6:On a cliff on the west part of the island. (south of the entrance to "Ghost of a Chance", north of the island with the old marketplace tent topper) The view, the water, the sea breeze ... The Cove is a fine spot indeed! A man could learn to like it here, if it weren't for the poxy harpies ... and the scorpions ... and o'course all the other pirates coming after your swag. Still, methinks when old Ned has pillaged another port or three he'll come back to the Cove and live out his days in the sun.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 7:Found in the spiderweb area at the northwest of the map near the Scoundrel's Run entrance. Now what did that old scoundrel Ratty do with his hoard? By now every pirate in the Thunder Sea has been over this island from stem to stem. We've found a dab of gold here, a few trinkets there - but nothing like what Ahraatz-Ri used to talk about. Methinks we're looking for the wrong thing.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 8:Found on a rock in coming out of the water southeast of the entrance to "Scoundrel's Run." (southeast of the fenced-in area in the middle of the water) Jack Jibbers just pulled into port, looking for a crew. That hell-blasted haunt is after the treasure too! Of course, he don't ship with none but the undead as his deckhands. And if there aren't any convenient - why then, he'll go out and make some.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 9:Found by a campfire on a rock northeast from the entrance to "Garl's Tomb." (go around clockwise, past the wrecked ship) They were telling tales about Jack Jibbers back in Barrel's Bottom. Said he can't be killed so long as the blade in his breast stays unbroken. Old Tomkins laughed and asked me if I'd kept the hatchet - maybe it'd keep me alive forever too. A fool thing to say! That hatchet was ruined, and of course they'd thrown it overboard by the time by the time [sic] I came to.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 10:Found on a rocky ledge by a lava 'waterfall' just southwest of the entrance to the Fire Caves. Captain Rackam was going on about his infamous Trial again. The old blowhard! Hatchet-face Ned is much too savvy to be caught in his net. 'Tis but a death trap he's made so he can pick the bones of any so foolish as to try it.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 11:North of Ghost of a Chance, at the base of a sandy ramp (follow the rock wall north) Last night every man jack in the Salty Wench was talking about the new arrival in town. An ambassador , they said - an ambassador from Argonnessen! Well now, I'd never seen a dragon, so of course I went on over to have a squint. What a hornswaggle! 'Twas only some wee elf woman with her hair askew.
- Hatchet-face Ned's Log 12:Found on the front-deck of the air-ship in the north-east of the map. (Near the entrance to Precious Cargo) Captain Tew - he's back. The Karrnathi necromancers got to him, I reckon. Being dead hasn't done his face any favors, mind. But he's madder than a sea snake about the treasure. Says that the Blood Tide will have the heads of any who try to take it. So 'its time for Hatchet-face Ned to ship out the Three-Barrel Cove. I've heard of treasure in Smuggler's Rest. Maybe I'll set sail for there.
