Entry 1
Location            
Savage Coast, (619,462): On top of the roller coaster. Get on the tracks where it starts, run south, and keep going until you see the lore.
We have a bedtime story, sweetling. It's made of broken doll parts strung together with the nerve endings of children. Nathaniel Winter loved his amusement park. He was known to wander through it just after it closed down, just before midnight. No, that's too far forward.

REWIND… Nathaniel Winter had no magic. But he did have money. He had grown up a frightened child, and vowed to gain the power to never be frightened again. With his jingling wealth, Nathaniel gained access to the denizens of the Secret World. Through something a little like persuasion and a lot like ruthlessness, he learnt how one might tap geographical sources of occult power and to feed off them as a parasite.

Entry 2
Location            
Savage Coast, (663,546): At the base of the Octratron ride.
We see Nathaniel signing the document to purchase the Henderson farm. We see what is embedded in the soil. We see the years of methodical attention to detail, the placement, the geomancy, the machines churning kinetic and preternatural energies, storing them over time -- and we see the bright paint and lights that masked the true intention. An amusement park was the perfect engine, with the added harvest of child laughter. There were screams too, of course. Accidents. An employee in a chipmunk suit went on a rampage with a knife. The engine churned urban legend, black and thick, and Nathaniel Winter vanished in that gooey murk after it closed down. Then came the Bogeyman. His hauntings were initially fixed. Now, he has rein to roam the creeping nook's and crannies of the park. If you confront him in these wanderings, sweetling, then we have one more morsel to share. Entry 3
Location            
Savage Coast, (526,502): Inside a cave that lead in and out of the park.
INITIATE Secret Epilogue…

You've earned a little more story before bedtime, sweetling. You looked into the Bogeyman's eyes. Did you see Nathaniel Winter? Did he, through years of wicked machination, take on the shape of the frightful demigod of all children? Or, is there a preexisting archetype of flesh, a floating mask, that travels all time and space, wearing its hosts more than they wear it? Yes.

Entry 4
Location            
Savage Coast, (620,482): When it is exactly midnight on the in-game clock, do the "/sleep" emote in front of the caretaker's shack in the Atlantic Island Park. That will summon the Bogeyman. Kill him and he will drop the lore.
