The first sign of activity began when the official twitter for The Secret World posted and a cryptic message. Some of the initial theories from the community have been the headless horseman and the wild hunt. [1]

On Monday, the official twitter began tweeting more clues and images. They take the form of burn manuscripts, with difficult to read text.

The second image

The second image revealed seems to be a smaller piece out of a larger one. It reads the following:

You will know him on the island of the magus king,
when perdition's portal closes and guardian stands outside.

On Tuesday, the official account tweeted again with another message and image. [5]

The third image

It reads the following:

the land beyond the forest,
spectral couple departs
You will know him in the ghost story town,

However, on the left part of the picture that is heavily burned you can make out "raohs" and "their rage". "Raohs" is probably cut off from Pharaoh, so it may have something to do with Valley of the Sun God. Transylvania is Latin for "beyond the forest"; "Ghost story town" would seem to refer to Kaidan.
