0. Introduction								[000]

Hello and welcome to my collectibles guide for The Last of Us.  This guide
will cover all the locations of all the Artifacts, Firefly Pendants, Comics,
Training Manuals, as well as the Optional Conversations, Shiv Doors, and
Tools.  I have to give a warning that there may contain possible spoilers
in this FAQ, so it's best to go after these collectibles in the New Game+,
unless you don't care about spoilers.  

You can select specific Chapters of the game by going to the Chapter Menu in
the Main Menu of the game.  Once selected, the game will list how many 
Artifacts, Firefly Pendants, and Comics you have collected for that 

Unfortunately, there is no way of keeping track of which Optional 
Conversations, Shiv Doors, or Tools you have collected for a specific 
Chapter.  You can find out how many of them you have collected in
the Statistics Menu, but that won't give you much to go on.  Training
Manuals can be found and examined in your backpack (press 'Select' Button).

The game has an auto-save feature, but make sure to save manually from time
to time, because the game has a possibility of not auto-saving some
collectibles if you quit out the game before it has a chance to.  

You do not need to complete the entire Chapter in order for the collectible
or completion percentage to be saved.  Just make sure to save your progress
before exiting out of the game.  For the Optional Conversations, you'll need
to make sure to check your Stats menu from the pause screen to see if the 
number of your Conversations has increased accordingly.

The Chapters are separated by sections.  Collectibles are listed in the order
in which they are found.  Each Chapter will include a link to a video guide

	Video Guides							[C01]

Here is a quick reference to all the video guides, with all collectibles
in the order that they are found.  I still get a few people contacting me
on where this or that particular collectible is, and they keep forgetting
that I have provided videos to help locate them.

III. Ellie's Jokes							[003]

Ellie's Jokes VIDEO GUIDE: http://youtu.be/ojQz_EjJzUs

During a few times in in Chapter 5, and once in Chapter 6, you can prompt
Ellie to pull out a joke book to tell some jokes.  Listening to all jokes
will unlock the 'That's all I got' Gold Trophy.  You also unlock a few tags.

There are 5 instances in which Ellie can tell a set of jokes. 

Jokes #1:
Chapter 5: Pittsburgh - Alone and Forsaken
When you pass through the Hunters Camp, exit out of that area into the 
street where you can find a bus (with a comic).  walk up the street a bit
further and three Hunters will appear, after trying to shoot a flock of 
birds.  After they've left, Ellie will say that you can climb the bus into
the next area.  Wait a bit, and then she should pull out her book.

Jokes #2:
Chapter 5: Pittsburgh - Alone and Forsaken
Inside the bookstore, after you've killed all the enemies, wait around for a
couple of minutes, and Ellie will lighten the mood with some of her jokes.

Jokes #3:
Chapter 5: Pittsburgh - Alone and Forsaken
Once Joel and Ellie reach the flooded streets and find the bridge they need
to head to, go in the opposite direction to find a dead end.  Ellie will 
comment on a poster there.  Wait here for a bit, and Ellie will patrol the
perimeter, and at the end she will tell a few more jokes.

Jokes #4:
Chapter 5: Pittsburgh - Hotel Lobby
Inside the Hotel Lobby, after putting the ladder up to go to the 2nd floor,
head right instead and shimmy over to the other side of the 2nd floor. 
Inside an open luggage, is an artifact with a combination for the safe
on behind the reception desk on the 1st floor.  You'll need to go grab the 
contents of the safe, and then head back up the ladder.  Once you've climbed
up the ladder, wait here for Ellie to tell more jokes.

Jokes: #5:
Chapter 6: The Suburbs - Suburbs
This last set of jokes is in the Suburbs, with Henry and Sam.  You'll need
to activate a few conversations:
1) Go to the caved-in house with the exposed kitchen, and Henry will talk 
about barbeques.
2) Opposite that kitchen is a house with some writing spraypainted in the 
front.  Go here and Sam will read the sign, and Henry will also have 
something to say.
3) The 3rd engagement is about the Ice Cream truck, which is hard to miss.
4) The last bit is to discuss the red Firefly symbol found at the dead end 
of the road.  

Once all of these conversations have happened, wait a bit for Ellie to tell
her last couple of jokes.  The trophy should then unlock.  Sam will tell
a joke of his own.
