Dead Man's Dread

Dead Man's Dread is an ancient ship located within the Grotto on Blackbone Isle. It is initially filled with undead, but can be claimed as a player home after completing the related quest.

The captain's quarters



  • The ship's cupboards contain unique clothing items added by this Creation.
  • Although Blackbone Isle has a map marker and can be fast travelled to from the mainland, you are required to take the boat back to Orphan's Tear to leave the island. This makes Dead Man's Dread particularly inconvenient as a player home, requiring three loading screens to reach via fast travel. The bandits at Orphan's Tear also respawn, meaning you will likely be attacked upon landing.


  • The Ghostly Remains of the Ghost Sailors and Ghost Captain may not despawn and will instead remain on the deck. This happens when you read the Pirate's Note and return to Dead Man's Dread too soon to claim it as a home.
    • Return after an in-game month to be sure.
