Treasure Island of Doom! is a quest in Fable II that becomes available when the Hero first reaches Bloodstone.


A man named Salty Jack who can be found in the Bloodstone tavern gives you this quest after you get him a beer. He then tells you the story of Captain Dread, a feared Pirate, whose ghost haunts a cave called "The Sinkhole", upon entering you are confronted with a hole which is 500ft (this unlocks "The Cliff Diver" Achievement). During the quest, you must fight his crew of ghosts, these are easy as they have the damage take of a Bandit. After fighting all of the ghosts you must go up a staircase to find a room. Search the room. On the right side of the bed is an endtable. Search this endtable and you will find Captain Dread's Key. This unlocks the chests in the same room that has a lever in it. You enter a port which holds his infamous ship the "Marianne", you must use the lever on a switch which requires a lever to be turned on, this rises the water in the port, making it easy for you to enter the Marianne. Now its time for a boss fight; Captain Dread will summon more of his men. Once they are defeated, he will fight the hero himself. He is a somewhat strong opponent who uses the vortex spell against you, but he can still be defeated rather easily. Once he's defeated you'll receive Captain Dread's Map.

Lion's Head Isle[]

Upon Dread's defeat you have to set sail on the Marianne, this loads up an island called Lion's Head Isle. On arrival you are greeted with a broken ship and a score box on the bottom right corner reading "Dread's Treasure". There are 10 treasures around the island, most of them being chests. Each treasure is a gold bag with 1500 gold inside. Find them all and you can return to Bloodstone.

A glitch with the treasure is that if you get all of the treasure chests, but not the underwater or the buried ones, you can re-load to get the chests. You can find Salty Jack just before the cavern you entered to begin the quest to complete it.

There is a gargoyle and a silver key on this island.

The silver key can be found by jumping off the ledge (to the right) as you enter the wooden cave.

Treasure Locations[]

There are 10 chests of treasure on the island needed to complete this quest. Their locations are as follows.

  1. Inside the back half of the broken ship on the beach
  2. On a small beach on the edge of the isle (swim around the rock wall in the water. It's to the left when looking at the ocean)
  3. On the deck of the front half of the broken ship (you need to jump down from a ledge on to it)
  4. When standing on the ledge from which you dive into the lake, turn left and look down. There will be a ledge with a chest on it.
  5. Buried on the lake island
  6. Sunken in the lake
  7. Behind the tree on the lake island
  8. Behind a waterfall
  9. In the cave above the lake behind some wooden planks
  10. On the ledge below the cave when returning to the beach from the lake

Changes Afterwards[]

After you complete "Treasure Island of Doom!" the jump spot in the entrance to the Sinkhole is no longer available, and is filled by water, but you can use this to swim to the other side to smash down the wooden barrier and collect a Silver Key

Note: If you fast travel back to Bloodstone instead of taking the ship, then you need to run over near the Sinkhole entrance to meet with Salty Jack to finish the quest. The glowing trail may not be present.
