Lore Notes are snippets of Yharnam lore found in Bloodborne. You can spot these as shining points in the ground. There is a total of ?? Lore notes, and they read as follows:
Central Yharnam Lore Notes (?)
- "Handwritten scrawl: Seek paleblood to transcend the hunt."
Location: Immediately upon waking in Iosefka's Clinic, on a chair to the character's right
- "When The hunt Began, the Healing Church left us, blocking the great bridge to Cathedral Ward, as Old Yharnam burned to the ground that moonlit night."
Location: Within the Dark House near the gate shortcut to Central Yharnam lamp. First accessed from the Great Bridge. Note is on a first floor shelf near the enemy in the wheelchair
Hunter's Dream Lore Notes (1)

Bergenswerth lore notw
The note in the Hunter's Dream that says "Ascend to Oedon Chapel" doesn't go away on new game plus. Any one else had this happen?
and added it back to the Cathedral Ward section. For reference, check out this thread. https://fextralife.com/forums/t42699/lore-notes-transcriptions-needed/ Post 3 mentions specifically to divide lore notes by location not by lamp.
Added everything as best i could and omptimized a few locations.
In Japanese, it is described as "scrawl written by PC hunter" (an autograph).
