List of Every Cargo Run NPC Location in Sea of Thieves

In Sea of Thieves running cargo for the Merchant Alliance will require you to know where specific NPC pirates are stationed on various islands. These Merchant Alliance Quests take you on a journey from island to island, delivering various resources to these NPC pirates in order to gain experience toward the Merchant Alliance.

Here is a list of all the cargo run NPC islands and locations you need to keep track of in Sea of Thieves. We have listed each in NPC in alphabetical order we hope you find this informational and helpful in your journey. Some islands will have images further explaining exactly where the NPC sits on the larger islands (basically all islands accept for seaposts have images… seaposts are tiny, super easy to find the pirate you are looking for).

If you are unfamiliar with the locations of all the islands in SOT, feel free to check out our Sea of Thieves interactive map where you can circle islands, browse islands by their shapes (for Gold Hoarder Missions), locate tall tales, search islands by name, and find islands that are inhabited with livestock; pigs, snakes, and chickens.

The Pattern Within The Names

Something I noticed when creating this article (it is something I overlooked until I put all the NPC’s in alphabetical order). The NPC’s names are clues to what profession they represent. Names starting with a [C] is most often a merchant who owns a clothing shop. An [S] named NPC more often than not are Ship shop keepers, [W] for weapon merchants. Male [T] names represent equipment shops and female [T] names are tavern bar keeps (and so on).

This doesn’t 100% apply to all names sadly, there are some exceptions to these rules. In addition, multi named individuals are indications of non-outpost locations (Lootin Penelope, Walter the Feared, etc)…But if you are someone who is attempting to memorize all the NPCs these patterns might help your mental sorting.
