The Chant Collectibles Guide

Welcome to our The Chant Collectibles Guide. There are a total of 71 collectibles in The Chant with 61 of them being Lore Notes, and 10 being Projector Reels. I’ve also listed the chapter-specific trophies and all 15 Mandacores so you really can’t miss anything.

Chapter 1

Lore Note #1 – Jess’ Letter to her Future Self – Already in your possession at the start of the chapter. The game doesn’t track this as a collectible which means the trophies for finding 10, 25, and 45 will unlock upon collecting your 11th, 26th, and 46th respectively. However, since this note can be found with the rest of the Lore Notes I’ve decided to list it as the first.

Projector Reel #1 – Orientation Video – Given to you by Sonny when you meet him inside the room next to the tent area where Kim is standing (remember to pick the reel up again after playing it in the Orientation Room).

Lore Note #2 – Sonny’s Form – On a small table to the right of Sonny when you first meet him.

Lore Note #3 – Maya’s Form – Found in a locker hidden behind a wooden building—the Orientation Room—opposite where Hannah is discussing the coming ritual. The building is just beyond the glass geodome in the middle of camp.

Lore Note #4 – Sonny’s Business Plan – On a desk inside the Orientation Room.

Mandacore #11 – While following the Spirit Trail you will come to a green gloom area in front of you and a red gloom area to your right. Inside the green gloom is a Mandacore guarded by a Strider. There’s no need to enter the green gloom so this Mandacore is highly missable.

Inside this smaller room is a cabinet with a note.

Lore Note #49 – Alchemical Instructions – Given to you automatically by Hannah after acquiring the key in the above room.

Lore Note #50 – Farmstead – Opposite the greenhouse is a house with a note on a table inside. You will pass this house while following Hannah inside the greenhouse. Make sure you don’t solve the alchemical plant puzzle before you grab this.

Lore Note #51 – Farm Stall Note – Go through the two doors to the right of the table and you will walk through a barn which is covered in gloom. Go straight and exit the barn then take a left and you should see an opening in a fence. Immediately as you go through the fence take a left and enter the stall there. Inside is a note.

Lore Note #52 – Farm Shed Note – Leave the stall and you will see a building to your left. Go behind the building and jump through the open window. Inside a cabinet with a fallen locker on top is a note.

Mandacore #12 – On your way back, before you re-enter the barn, is a door on your left that will lead to the back of the blocked garden area opposite the barn. Inside is a Mandacore which is highly missable.

Alchemist Trophy – At this point you should have the valve for the machine inside the greenhouse. Consult the paper that Hannah gave you to create the Plant Dissolving Solution and then put it in the machine to solve the puzzle. Try not to pick up any plants you don’t need as this will increase your chances of accidentally selecting the wrong plant to combine. It’s safer to only pick up and combine two plants at a time so you can’t make any mistakes.

Lore Note #53 – Administration – Follow Hannah and you will be separated again a couple minutes later. Head into the building in front of you and walk through the red gloom into another room and on a notice board ahead of you is a note.

Lore Note #54 – Attic Note – Turn around and head through the door to the left of the projector screen and climb the ladders in the next room. In the attic head left and around the boxes to find another note.

You Have Chosen… Wisely Trophy – In the attic are a series of rafters that you must cross without breaking them and falling. The first one is easy as there is only one rafter but the next three sets of rafters all have a left, middle, and right choice. The correct sequence is: Middle (only choice), Left, Right, Left.

Projector Reel #10- Beacon of Ascension – Progress forward and you will reach a small red geodome with Red Pineal Orb inside. In the room next to the altar is the last reel.

Lore Note #55 – Red Homestead – Leave the room via the door and you will see a small fire in the next room. Keep to the left and you will see another door that leads to a note on a table.

Lore Note #56 – Orange Homestead – Progress a bit more and you will reach a courtyard with a large stone well. Opposite the well is a cabinet with a note inside.

Lore Note #57 – Green Homestead – Enter the green gloom in the area and head forward until you see a metal cabinet you can open to find another note.

Mandacore #13 – In the room with the Green Pineal Orb is a Mandacore. You don’t necessarily need to kill this one to progress which makes it somewhat missable.

Lore Note #58 – Indigo Homestead Note – After Hannah gives you her prism you can traverse the indigo gloom. Inside the gloom is a geodome where you pick up the Indigo Pineal Orb key item. This geodome also has a note hiding behind a Mandacore.

Mandacore #14 – In the geodome with the Indigo Pineal Orb is a Mandacore. You don’t necessarily need to kill this one to progress which makes it somewhat missable.

Mandacore #15 – Next to the geodome where you find the Yellow Pineal Orb is a Mandacore. You don’t necessarily need to kill this one to progress which makes it somewhat missable.
