The Lantern of Gaun This quest will appear in your journal as soon as Xoti joins your team.
Blow the Man Down Ship You will get this quest as soon as you get your ship back and leave Port Maje Island. While sailing the waters, you will be approached by another ship and forced into speaking with Captain Furrante.
A Paradise of the Mind Splintered Reef While exploring Splintered Reef, I came across a tavern filled with vessels, going about their lives as if nothing were amiss. Inside I met a Dargul by the name of Copperhead. He claims there's something strange going on. Judging by the fact that no one seems to have noticed that they are rotting corpses consuming the flesh of living kith, he's probably right.
The City Lost to Time Eothas is going to the legendary island of Ukaizo to disrupt or destroy Eora's cycle of reincarnation. Only by following him there can I confront him directly.
A Dance with Death Dunnage Captain Furrante is convinced that the only way to Ukaizo starts by gaining command of Lucia Rivan's Floating Hangman. With the Engoliero do Espirs in my possession, I'm to sail to sea and draw the undead Darcozzi paladin to me.

Honor Among Thieves You will receive this quest when you leave Neketaka after starting the main quest The Coming Storm.
Taking Out the Traders Neketaka Queen Onekaza has asked that I aid her in a plot to destroy Rauatai's powderhouse and implicate the Vailian Trading Company. This would debilitate Rauatai's armaments and disgrace the Vailian's colonial leadership in one fell swoop.
Bounty - Uamoru the Pretender Neketaka Uamoru, a nature godlike and pretender to the Kahanga throne, is attempting to foster rebellion against the leadership of Neketaka. He and his followers camp on an island east of Magran's Teeth.
