This page focuses on where you can find and complete all six Unwritten Tales in the Iki Island Expansion for Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut. These are completely optional and hidden Tales that are not marked on the map.
What are Unwritten Tales?
Despite their name, Unwritten Tales are not as long or complicated as any of the other Tales in Ghost of Tsushima. These are often similar to world events in other open world games and you won’t find these marked in your Journal at all. With that in mind, it’s usually a better idea to set out and complete these all at once, so you don’t lose track of what ones you have or haven’t done. Completing all of these will reward some Legend and unlock the Common Courtesy Trophy. Below, you’ll find a table with all of the unwritten tales and how to complete them:
|Unwritten Tale||Location||Prerequisite||How to Complete|
|Bury the Captain||Northern beach, west of Yahata Lighthouse||–||You’ll find the Ship captain who took you to Iki Island, simply honor him by giving him a proper burial.|
