Jobs Overview (Continued)

Fujimori's Ninjas!

Description: Fujimori elites, who want a full-scale war against Ouka Clan, ordered 3 ninjas to assassinate Ouka Clan's soft-liners. Proceed to [Castle Minori] and eliminate the ninjas.

When: Mid-Late game.

How to: The ninjas will look like normal Fujimori guards with masks on. They will be located anywhere in Minori, most of the time in the Castle grounds. It can be a major pain to fight them as Ouka clan members will be everywhere.

One thing I personally didn't know before doing this mission is that you can get on the roof of the main building either by the stairs outside on the north side of the building, or by the window again north side on the 2nd floor... when searching for the ninjas be sure to look up all the time.

The big problem is them disappearing. If one of them manages to vanish (either from being ingored or taking damage) he won't be back until you leave the area and come back again. Thankfully if you do kill any of them you will only need to get the ones that manged to vanish when you return to Minori.

For that reason I don't like this mission, it's tends to just take too much time.


Samurai Punisher is Coming! (3)

Description: A Samurai General is plotting to kill Lord Shuzen. Assassinate him at the [Guard Gate] and don't let anyone see you or they may assume it's a sanction by a Samurai Punisher.

When: Mid-Late game.

How to: So you have to find a single Fujimori guard who is in full armour with the name "Samurai General". If the other Fujimori guards see you they will either try to kill you or run away, and if they do runaway the Samurai General vanishes and you can't complete the mission. The Fujimori Guard that are normally in the area do not count towards this so the one right beside the gate to leave Amana can see you without concequence.

First I'd suggest quick traveling to Minori then the Road to start north as each time I've done this mission he's been either right beside the northern building or down the path at the northern point. When you find him try to kill him without moving to avoid the other guards.

If a guard does see you and starts to run, try to kill him or knock him out. If you can't reach him leave the area and you won't fail the mission and can try to reach the general again.


Eliminate them All!

Description: Ouka Clan and a group of outcasts have started a fight, which lead to a fierce battle at the [Road]. Eliminate them all!

When: Mid-Late game.

How to: Go to the road, fight the large group fighting and kill them all. I find the group is either going to be the north end of the temple to across the bridge or near the southern house.


Run for you Life!

Description: You must compete against Kiyonari in a race. Go through the main gate, followed by the outer gate, then return to the starting point through the rear gate. The first one back wins.

When: Late game.

How to: A simple race, you're much faster then Kiyonari unless you're a female NPC with the slower run animation. It'll give check points as you pass gates for both you and Kiyonari, just get back to the start point and it should instantly bring up the mission complete message.


The Homeless Mighty God!

Description: Tonight is the night to kill Joji of Ouka Clan, a.k.a. the "Homeless Mighty God". Kiyonari's men will lure and corner him. Proceed to [Kuchihagahara] and finish him.

When: 1st you must have max trust with Kiyonari meaning after a job you get 600 yen. After the Nobunaga Event she should offer this mission.

How to: When you get to Kuchihagahara there will be 4 armoured Fujimori guards there right beside the northern save point. Speak with them and kill/ KO them.

After the 1st battle you need to finish off Kiyonari, and be sure to pick up his weapon Zannkimaru. If you want one with good stats leave after dealing with the armoured Fujimori guards, the game remembers you've killed them so you'll only have to deal with Kiyonari himself.


Rise of Fujimori Samurai!

Description: Defeat 100 Ouka Clan members found in [Kuchihagahara]. Complete the job and you'll be recognized as a Fujimori samurai.

When: Redemption mission, before Nobunaga event.

How to: Go to Kuchihagahara and get killing, they'll just keep coming.


The Lone Guard!

Description: Serve as a Rear Guard at the [Road] to help the Fujimori samurai retreat. Stop 100 Ouka Clan members with everything you have. Success in this job will remove your stigma.

When: Redemption mission, after Nobunaga event.

How to: Go to the Road and get killing, they'll just keep coming.


Job Leader Joji

Joji is the Ouka Clan Job dealer, so he's in Minori. Most of his jobs are about Ouka clan's power or pride.


Ouka's Pride!

Description: Threaten a commoner who's been disrespecting Ouka Clan. Show him what it means to be degraded. Draw a wepaon to scare him. The target is at the [Guard Gate].

When: 1st mission, so early.

How to: His name will be cocky Bastard, a villager skin with a green shirt. I tend to find him along the side's of walls thoughout the guard gate area, it may just be me but I do find he tends to be around the middle. You can talk to him and he'll start trying to kick you so I'd suggest just start attacking him.

I don't recommend drawing your sword unless you're on IK and can KO him in a single shot just start kicking while your sword is on blunt mode. If you wait between kicks he'll eventually start bowing saying he won't disrespect Ouka again... or you can just kick him until he's knocked out.

Also if you kill him you fail automatically.


Genjuro!

Description: Ouka Clan's beloved dog, Genjuro, hasn't returned from his walk yet. Find the dog and bring him back. Get some tips from Joji on the dog's location.

When: Early game.

How to: Like the offical description says the 1st thing you want to do is speak with Joji he'll say that the dog was seen in an area nieghboring on of the 8 other location. For example as I write this Joji said an area neighboring the posting station, meaning the dog is either in Guard Gate or Takatane.

When you go to one of the areas try to quick travel, if it doesn't let you saying to walk on your own the dog is in that area... if you can quick travel go to another area and try again.

When you find the area just look around for the dog, he isn't that hard to spot as he is a dog, when you find him just tell him to go home.


Apologies!

Description: It's an honorable job to apologize for the misconduct caused in [Omiki Town] by a member of Ouka Clan. Go and do your duty.

When: Mid game.

How to: Pretty simple, just go to the area speak with her and apology until you complete the mission, she might kick you a bit but just keep the button pressed.

Depending on the conversation choices you can also give her money instead, she took 50 yen for me to complete the mission.

Only issue is finding the women, in my experience I've found her away from the main street either on the east, north or west sides of the map, but she shouldn't be hard to find since you can see thought bubbles when you start to get close to her.


Hostage!

Description: A member of Ouka Clan is being held hostage by Fujimori's men. They are in [Kuchihagahara]. Go and rescue him.

When: Mid game.

How to: This job needs to be done fast, when you enter the area you'll start to be messages about how the hostage is doing, and he will die in a few short minutes.

I'd suggest from the entrance that leads to Minori go east along the path making sure he isn't in the northern part of the map then going clockwise around the map. If you don't find him quick you may want to leave and try again.


Desperate Need for Help!

Description: Fujimori's men made an accusation on a member of Ouka Clan and confiscated his Small Box that was a memento of his mother. Return the Small Box kept inside the [Guard Gate].

When: Mid game.

How to: You're looking for the cat "Whiskers". When you get close he'll start to run away, you have to bump the cat several times to get it to calm down, once calm you need to give the cat the dried fish Joji gave you and it's accept the mission to retrieve the box. The cat then goes to get the box and will return with it.

After the mission you can send whiskers back to get random items... I've never found anything worthwhile but if you do contact me to let me know.


Ouka's Territory!

Description: A fight between a group of outcasts and Fujimori Clan is intruding on Ouka Clan's territory, [Road]. In the name of Ouka, go and get rid of all of them.

When: Mid game.

How to: Another just kill everyone mission, the group can be anywhere but generally cause of the number of them they won't be hard to find, so find them and kill them all.


Our Genjuro!

Description: Genjuro is missing again! It seems he was caught by a Fujimori samurai in [Kuchihagahara]. Defeat the samurai and rescue our Genjuro.

When: Mid game.

How to: You're looking for a Fujimori Vassel named "Dog Thief", he's normally in the middle area for me. You ultimately have to defeat him, what makes this mission somewhat annoying is Genjuro the dog will start to attack you which interrupts moves. You can't really do anything about Genjuro attacking you so just focus on killing the thief and Genjuro will do home after you kill him.


Fearless Bandits!

Description: Eliminate 3 men who became thieves without Joji's permission and make an example out of them. The trailtors are hiding in [Castle Amana].

When: Mid-Late game.

How to: So there will be 3 Ouka members somewhere near the castle, named thief. They won't be inside the castle but they will be inside the castle grounds. When found you can speak to them or just start attacking them, you are required to kill them all.

Now during the fight they'll randomly use one item they have stolen. For example they may use a rice ball, but it may turn it to be a rotten rice ball. They've also used chick cakes that restore a lot of their health, so some of the battles can last a long time. Comically I've also seen one try to use a chick cake and eat a tea cup instead, reducing his health by a lot.

If you don't want to piss off Fujimori clan you likely won't want to draw your blade near their guards, if one of your targets is near a guard or two what I've done is speak with the theif so he'll draw on me and get near the guard. The guard will try to kill the thief, depending on what item the thief uses the guard may win but likely will die allowing you to kill the thief without the guard trying to attack you.

Easy to miss area is the entrence way facing the road (north-east side of map). After you pass though the archway turn around looking up. One of them can be up there.


Shameful Fun!

Description: In order to strengthen the power of Ouka Clan, execute Shameful Slash on every woman gathered together in [Kuchihagahara]. Old ladies have nothing to do with this.

When: Late game.

How to: I hate this job. By far this is the most annoying job in the game. In Kuchihagahara there will be 8 women you need to do a shameful slash on, however if you injury ONE of them you instantly fail the mission.

If you don't know to do a shameful slash you must only hit the bottom half of a women, her dress will rip and she'll be left with a mini-skirt.

I suggest using a draw stance weapon's basic Square move. I've had the most success with it. Just be to the right of the women and you should get the slash. What you need to be career is that your blade will only hit one person.

Ultimately I suggest never doing this mission, not only is it really annoying but every shameful slash you perform will count as a Hi Do meaning it's -400 Samurai points every time you succeed at this mission.


Assassinate the Assassin!

Description: Someone is planning your assassination! According to reliable sources, the assassin will be in [Kuchihagahara] tonight. Go there and assassinate the killer.

When: 1st you must have max trust with Joji meaning after a job you get 600 yen. After the Nobunaga Event he should offer this mission, if not do a few more missions for him and eventually it'll be offered.

How to: Ah poor conflicted Joji, he's appear in the southern area, right next to that grey-ish circle on the local map. Speak with him, and ultimately kill him. He'll drop a golden egg along with the unique to him weapon Ippatsumaru, so be sure to pick up that weapon for your collection.


Slaughter in Kuchihagahara!

Description: Fujimori warriors are participating in a training exercise. Proceed to [Kuchihagahara] and defeat 100 of them to earn respect.

When: Redemption mission, before Nobunaga event.

How to: Go to Kuchihagahara and get killing, they'll just keep coming.


Ouka Clan Honor!

Description: A Fujimori brigade is assembled on the [Road]. Eliminate them in honor of Ouka Clan, and regain trust from their members.

When: Redemption mission, after Nobunaga event.

How to: Go to the road and get killing, they'll just keep coming.


Other jobs

There are people who will offer a single job some of the time. They can be done anytime during the day, so instead of a when I have a where to find the person who offers the job, as well some of the jobs require you to have a partner with you so I've noted that as well.

Like the job brokers their name tags will be purple to let you know they offer a job.


Rice Pounding

Description: Use the left strike to strike down and circle, X, Square, triangle for your partner to flip the rice.

Press the correct button or direction at the right time as they appear on the bottom of the screen. Pound the rice 30 times within the time limit.

Where: Old Man in Takatane, north of the only save Biwa player. Wiseman at northern area in Guard Gate.

Requires Partner: Yes

How to: Description really says it all, just try to hit the button required when it reaches the red line.


Swordplay Theater

Description: Move the Left and Right Stick inward in sync with your partner's strike.

Perform the controls at the right time to succeed and earn money. You will take damage if you make a mistake. The game will end if your HP reaches zero. The challenge will end after five tries

Where: Buddy in the middle of Posting station. As well Fujimori Servent at the Road.

Requires Partner: Yes

How to: The timing can be difficult at 1st but your partner does hint when they're going to strike. Each time the partner hits you instead of you catching the sword you'll take about 250 damage.


Vegetable Cutting

Description: Cut the vegtables thrown at you.

Cutting something that is not a vegetable will decrease the durability of your weapon. You will also take damage for getting hit by a non-vegetable item, so make sure to avoid them with the Left stick.

The game will end if your HP reaches zero.

Where: Housewife, field just north of Munechika's house. Chef in Minori, the south-western house.

Requires Partner: No

How to: You have to time it so the vegetables will be cut when you slice... it can take practice. When she gets ready to throw the large stones (why does she have stones with her vegetables...) be ready to dodge by moving left or right with the left stick.


Fillet a Tuna

Description: Fillet the hanging tuna. Be aware that both sides must be equally cut.

Reward will change depending on time taken.

Where: Septiego, just south of the eastern gate in Amana Castle, also a cook in the posting station.

Requires Partner: No

How to: Just attack the fish, speed is what matters most and as the description says there are two sides to be cutting.


Bell Ringing

Description: Use the left stick and X to strike the bell.

Tilt the Left Stick and the right to charge the power aguge displayed at the bottom of the screen. Tilting the Left Stick in sync with the power guage will increase your swinging strength.

Press X when the cursor is at the leftmost position to ring the bell.

Ring the bell well will gather more people and increase your reward.

Where: Old Lady in the middle of the road area beside the big bell.

Requires Partner: No

How to: Looking at the gauge at the bottom you want to hit X when it's at the very left hand side in the red area. If you get it perfect the score will be 100, if not be sure to be in the red area. If you get a good score the 1st few times you can get a few more attempts but that requires pretty much each attempt to be 100.


Characters/ Skins

This is a full list of the skins, most of them have a place where I have gotten them. This doesn't mean every playthough there's a 100% chance they'll appear there but gives you an idea of where they should appear.

I suggest before looking at this list if you want all 140 skins to play on IK and knock out and then kill everyone everywhere (like as in ending 22). Most of the skins will be unlocked this way, leaving only a few dozen that are hopefully all noted below.

To unlock any of the skins you need the option, which is unlocked at about 8000 samurai points as well as you must have used a blunt attack to knock out the character you want to play as.


Unique skins

There are the major people in the game, all of which are unique and used by a single person (cept for Shuzen... who has a double who appears in the mission Assassinate Lord Shuzen!).

Shuzen Fujimori
You fight him in many endings so it should be too hard to knock him out. Or you can knock out the double in the mission Misae gives you "Assassinate Lord Shuzen!"
Shinnosuke Umemiya
You can find him at Amana or at Kuchihagahara at night.
Kirie Masatsugu
He's nearly always at Amana Castle idling around.

Genjuro Matsuzaki
At Minori most days and nights.
Yuma Umemiya
Appears in events here and there, but spends most of his time in Minori.
Itsuse Rindo
Minori again, she really doesn't leave the place.
Setsuen
He appears on the road after the inkling that introduces him.
Zaji
Appears only during ending 21 as a late event, if you do knock him out you can't get his weapon since he disappears right after.

Another partner, click the name to see how to get her.
Dona
Dona is a partner who appears in the posting station after 30 days.

Generic skins

Below are skins that are all pretty similar to their own catagory, for the most part these are the ones you don't have to hunt for but a few can be annoying.


Foot Soldier

This set is the standard Fujimori soldier in armour, what changes between them is the head like most other sets, all can be gotten from just running around and knocking out various soldiers.

Foot Soldier 1
Bald head, small hair knot on top obtained in Amana Castle on IK.

Foot Soldier (Common)

Basically the same as the foot soldier, only they have hats!

Foot Soldier (Common) 1
I do believe it's the same model as Foot soldier 1, however you can see the hair with him having a hat on. Told he's gotten on Samurai Punisher is Coming! (3) (may neeed to be IK, I'd think any difficulty would have a chance for the skin).
Foot Soldier (Common) 1
Yup it either glitched on my game or it just has the same entry twice. Again can't really tell what the hair looks like, but unlocked in hard as one of the guards during the mission Samurai Punisher is Coming! (3). As well he's obtained in Amana Castle on IK.
Foot Soldier (Common) 2
Head with the moustache and beard, obtained in Amana Castle on IK.

Bald with hair knot on top, gotten on hard in the mission Stop the War! from Misae ... may be gotten in other missions (such as redemption).
Armored Samurai 2
Has a helmet/ facemask on, I can't be 100% sure but I believe I got this model from the mission The Homeless Mighty God!. Also obtained in Amana Castle on IK.
Armored Samurai 3
Nearly the same as 1 bald with hair knot, gotten on hard in the mission Stop the War! from Misae, also obtained in Amana Castle on IK.
Armored Samurai 4
Bald with the face that has a moustache and beard, not sure if this was gotten on IK running around, been told it's the skin of Kirie's replacement

This is the same face for Foot soldier 5, bald top and a pony tail but again he's in a set of armour, also like Armored Samurai 2 obtained in Omiki town on IK, also got him in Amana Castle on IK.
Armored Samurai 6
Hair that goes down to the shoulders, obtained on IK at Guard Gate.
Armored Samurai 7
Messy short hair, obtained in Amana Castle on IK.

Armored Samurai (Common)

Again the common means they have a hat on.

Armored Samurai (Common) 1
Armour with a hat, can't see the hair to describe it, and again I believe he was gotten from the mission The Homeless Mighty God!.
Armored Samurai (Common) 2
Standard 2 face, gotten on hard during the redemption mission Ouka Clan Honor! which is the 2nd one not the standard one (though he might be in both some of the time).

Ponytail head, found in a small room in the northern part of Castle Amana some of the time (hard).
Vassal (Green) 5
Shoulder length hair, obtained in redemption mission on hard. Told he's gotten from The Hand of an Agent! mission, the target can't be gotten so you have to hope your guy losses (or kill him yourself).

Items

This section is all about items, what they are and where to get em.


Item list

Below is a description of every item in the game, it's cost to buy, how much it sells for as well as anything I feel is worth noting for the item.

Most items sell for 5% of their buy value but there are exceptions.

Like most section I want to say if you feel I've missed something or something needs to be changed feel free to contact me.


Amakusa Grind Stone

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 50 yen

Description: High quality grind stone to sharpen weapons. Weapon Attack +10, Quality +1, Defense -5.

Notes: Sell it, never use it. If you want your weapon to have more attack the Dojima brothers forge a better weapon then will result in using one of these horrible items.


Amana Mushroom

Buy: 800 yen

Sell: 40 yen

Description: Mushroom once grown with the cherry blossoms. Attack and Defense increases by 50% for 30 seconds.

Notes: Can be gotten when you defeat Shinnousuke, and worth using in a tough fight.


Ancient Amulet

Buy: 1500 yen

Sell: 75 yen

Description: An accessory handed down from ancient times. Maximum HP +100.

Notes: The HP increase stays between playthoughs, so consider investing some money into these, as the HP they give they are the best value you can get.


Arcane Potion

Buy: 3000 yen

Sell: 150 yen

Description: A rare potion created by a renowned apothecary. Automatically restores 1000 HP when HP is zero.

Notes: Description does say it all, if you die and have one of these you get 1000 HP back. This is a must on IK mode where every attack kills you. This item basically gives you lives, each hit takes one of these away so if you have 10 you can get hit 11 times without a game over.


Blade Powder

Buy: 500 yen

Sell: 25 yen

Description: Made from a rare grind stone to improve weapons. Weapon Attack +5, Quality +1.

Notes: Never use this item. Having one of the Dojima brothers forge your weapon will always give more then this horrible +5 attack.


Buddhist Beads

Buy: 500 yen

Sell: 25 yen

Description: A spiritual bracelet crafted with beads by a monk. Maximum HP +20.

Notes: The max HP increase is perament though all playthoughs, so this is worth using/ getting. However the ancient Amulet item is the better buy value.


Chick Cake

Buy: 600 yen

Sell: 30 yen

Description: Steamed yellow cake in the shape of a baby chick. Restores 1000 HP.

Notes: You can find one at Guard Gate at the northern tip beside the house, but they are worth buying as 1000 HP; espically early on is a lot.


Chicken Cake

Buy: 1200 yen

Sell: 60 yen

Description: Steamed white cake in the shape of a chicken. Restores 2000 HP.

Notes: Worth buying as I don't believe they're dropped anywhere.


Comb

Buy: N/A

Sell: 500 yen

Description: A beautiful comb. It's useless to a samurai.

Notes: An item with it's only purpose is to be sold.


Dried Fish

Buy: 180 yen

Sell: 9 yen.

Description: A fresh water fish sliced open and preserved in salt. Restores 300 HP.

Notes: Can be found in a few spots on the road, this is an item I might consider buying early on but later just finding them is better.


Egg

Buy: 50 yen

Sell: 5 yen

Description: A fresh chicken egg. Restores 200 HP.

Notes: A standard healing item, buy if you feel you need but it's dropped by a bunch of people.


Ginseng

Buy: 2000 yen

Sell: 100 yen

Description: A very epensive perennial used in medicine. Automatically restores 500 HP when HP is zero.

Notes: Like the arcane potion, if HP gets to 0 this item is used and gives you 500 HP. Ginseng will be used before arcane potions and on IK having 10 of each means you need to be hit 21 times before you're dead, dead which helps a lot.


Golden Egg

Buy: 6000 yen

Sell: 300 yen

Description: A rare egg. Completely restores HP.

Notes: Check the Getting Golden Eggs section to find them, it's well worth having a few on you at all times.


Jumbo Radish

Buy: 400 yen

Sell: 20 yen

Description: A delicious vegetable that's etremely hard to grow. Restores 600 HP.

Notes: Villagers sometimes drop it but otherwise you'll have to buy them, and they are worth getting.


Katashiro

Buy: 400 yen

Sell: 20 yen

Description: A mystic doll used in ancient times for protection. Defense increases 50% for 30 seconds.

Notes: Can be dropped by a lot of enemies.


Mushroom

Buy: 100 yen

Sell: 5 yen

Description: An edible mushroom that is common in Amana. Restores 100-300 HP.

Notes: The HP is random but does normally restore around the 200 mark. This item can be found on pretty much every map in some corner or another, so is a great thing to pick up early on.


Nisshouzan Grind Stone

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 50 yen

Description: High quality grind stone to strengthen weapons. Weapon Defense +10, Quality +1, Attack -5.

Notes: Just like Amakusa Grind stone it just ain't worth using.


Old Radish

Buy: 40 yen

Sell: 2 yen

Description: A hard and dry radish that's starting to grow mold. Restores 50 HP.

Notes: Never buy them, you can find them in crates by breaking them.


Omiki Sake

Buy: N/A

Sell: 30 yen

Description: Locally-brewed mild sake. Perfect for sake lovers!

Notes: I haven't found a use for it other then selling. It's dropped randomly, by normal troops (Ouka mostly I believe).


Poison Mushroom

Buy: N/A

Sell: 2 yen

Description: A poisonous mushroom. Eat at your own risk!

Notes: Does heal you like a mushroom but with a side effect (like attack down).


Radish

Buy: 80 yen

Sell: 4 yen

Description: A locally gown radish with a sweet and mild taste. Restores 100 HP.

Notes: Never buy them, they can be gotten by taking them from the fields, sure you might not feel good taking them, but there are no negatives for doing so.


Red Pepper

Buy: 400 Yen

Sell: 20 yen

Description: A rare and spicy pepper used to ignite the body, Attack increases 50% for 30 seconds.

Notes: I never used them but it does have a nice effect for use against a boss.


Rice Ball

Buy: 150 yen

Sell: 7 yen

Description: Freshly cooked rice ball wrapped in seaweed. Restores 200 HP.

Notes: Fujimori troops seem to drop these regularly so I wouldn't buy, unless you don't have any items.


Rotten Rice Ball

Buy: N/A

Sell: 5 yen

Description: A rotten rice ball. Eat at your own risk!

Notes: It will heal you but has a random side effect. Dropped by a lot of different regular troops.


Scroll: Advance

Buy: 1200 yen

Sell: 60 yen

Description: A scroll written by a samurai to perserve his skills. Teaches an advance skill.

Notes: Teaches skills that are considered "advance". If you want to master a sword just keep using them until it says they can't be used anymore.


Scroll: Basic

Buy: 800 yen

Sell: 40 yen

Description: A scroll written by a weapon teacher for students. Teaches a basic skill.

Notes: This makes you learn one basic skill on the sword you have equipped, if it doesn't work it let's you know why so pay attention (either you can't learn anymore or you need another skill before you can earn what else this can teach you).


Scroll: Bare-Handed

Buy: 800 yen

Sell: 40 yen

Description: A scroll written by a hand-to-hand combat master. Teaches a bare handed skill.

Notes: You only need 16 of them to master the stance, buy if you want as they aren't a common drop but do drop from regular enemies rarely.


Scroll: Dual Sword

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 250 yen

Description: A scroll written by a master of Dual Sword Stance. Teaches a Dual Sword Skill.

Notes: Much like the Scroll: Bare handed item you only need a few and once you have mastered the stance you never need them again. So either find them randomly or purchase them, it's up to you.


Scroll: Match

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 50 yen

Description: A scroll written on handling an opponent's skill. Teaches a skill to match.

Notes: If you use 598 of these you'd be all but unkillable. A skill that is matched literally does no damage and is considered to be just guarded, and this scroll makes it so you match a random skill.


Scroll: Ninja Dual Sword

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 250 yen

Description: A scroll written on the Ninja Dual Sword Stance. Teaches a Ninja Dual Sword Skill.

Notes: Same idea of Scroll: Dual Sword, buy them find them... it's up to you.


Scroll: Fury

Buy: 800 yen

Sell: 40 yen

Description: A scroll written by a samurai on the art of killing. Chain Kill chance increases for 30 seconds.

Notes: Not sure if this item does anything for you, probably just pick them up to sell not use.


Scroll: Rage

Buy: 500 yen

Sell: 25 yen

Description: A scroll written by a outcast on the art of killing. Chain Kill chance increases for 15 seconds.

Notes: I'm not actually sure what this does, so I don't recommend getting it.


Scroll: Special

Buy: 1600 yen

Sell: 80 yen

Description: A forbidden scroll written by an unknown master. Teaches a special skill.

Notes: Along with the basic and advance scrolls you can fully master any sword with this. Most sword will only require 1, maybe 2 of these.


Straw Doll

Buy: N/A

Sell: 25 yen

Description: An item secretly used in a midnight curse ritual. Attack increases 50% for 60 seconds.

Notes: the mission for Kiyonari Ghost Sightings in Amana! the ghost turns into one of these, so don't hand them over if you want to use it.


Sword Oil

Buy: 500 yen

Sell: 25 yen

Description: Sword oil used to help protect weapons from rust. Weapon Defense +5, Quality +1

Notes: Just like blade powder it just isn't worth it, have the Dojima brothers forge your weapons!


Talisman

Buy: 1000 yen

Sell: 50 yen

Description: A wood talisman with a mantra written on it. Maximum HP +50.

Notes: As with the other max HP + items the effect carries though all playthoughs, but again if you're buying just get the ancient amulet.


Tea Cup

Buy: N/A

Sell: 1000 yen

Description: A ceremonial tea cup. It's useless to a samurai.

Notes: Dropped by Fujimori people, it's only use is to sell it.
