    Welcome to my FAQ for Way of the Samurai 3. I realize it's not much to
    look at, but I sincerely hope you'll find some use for it as you play
    this fantastic game.
    
    I've tried my best, with a great deal of help from the community, to
    assemble all of the pertinent information regarding Way of the Samurai 3
    in a clear, concise and organized manner. With luck, everything should
    be clear and easy to find. Again, I hope you'll find this FAQ helpful—and
    I dearly hope you'll have as much fun with this fantastic game as I've had.
    
    I would also like to take a moment to thank the Way of the Samurai 3 community
    at GameFAQs, for the incredible amount of support I've received for this FAQ.
    I certainly never expected to receive the deluge of questions,
    advice, input and thanks I've received—both through my email, and through
    the GameFAQs forum. I truly appreciate all of your input, and hope that
    my meager guide will manage live up to even a fraction of those expectations.
    
    
    Current FAQ Status:
    	FAQ is all but done. All that's missing is a complete list of swords,
    	spears and skills in the game... and to be honest, I don't know when
    	I'm going to get around to that.

    Way of the Samurai 3 is an action-based Samurai simulator (that's right,
    I'm calling this a sim) released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles
    in Japan in 2008, and the following year—2009--in the United States.
    A European release has been announced, but a release date has not.

    The Way of the Samurai is, on the surface, the Way of War. Beyond that,
    it's a way of living that emphasizes honor, duty, and self-sacrifice—and
    the gameplay of Way of the Samurai 3 does well to emphasize that philosophy.
    
    Simply put, there is no greater Samurai simulation.

    Attack:
    	A weapon attack consists of either a weak attack (square) or a strong
    	attack (triangle).
    
    Jump:
    	Press the circle button to jump. Press either the square button or the
    	triangle button while in the air to perform a jump attack.
    
    Special Move:
    	Press the left stick along with the R1 and circle buttons to step in
    	the direction the left stick is tilted. If you press only the R1 button
    	and the circle button, you will simply step forward.
    
    Defend:
    	Press the R1 button to defend against an opponent's attack. Some attacks
    	cannot be defended against.
    
    Push:
    	Press the left stick (toward your opponent) and the square button to
    	break through  an opponent's defense. If successful, the opponent will
    	be put into an off-balanced state.
    
    Pull:
    	Press the left stick (away from your opponent) and the R1 button to
    	pull through an enemy's attack. If successful, the opponent will be
    	off-balance. This will only work when the opponent does a push attack.
    
    Kick:
    	Press the R1 button and the square button to kick. Kicking causes
    	minimal damage, but there's no defense against it.
    
    Throw:
    	Press the R1 button and the triangle button to throw an opponent. As
    	with kicking, there's no defense against it.
    
    Parry (Match):
    	Parry is a special defense technique where you press the R1 button
    	right when your opponent's weapon is about to strike you. If you are
    	successful at parrying an opponent's strong attack, your character will
    	glow yellow for a brief second and there's a chance you'll Match the
    	skill. Once you have Matched the skill, you'll automatically Parry that
    	opponent's skill attack when it strikes you.
    
    Instant Kill (Hit Satsu):
    	When you successfully Parry, there is a chance the Glimpse of Death will
    	occur with the X button displayed on the screen. When you successfully
    	press the X button while it's present on the screen, you will be able to
    	kill your opponent with a single strike, regardless of your opponent's
    	HP. The Glimpse of Death will not occur on certain strong opponents.
    
    Chain Kill (Ren Satsu)
    	When you are successful in an Instant Kill, you will be in the state of
    	Chain Kill. While you are in this state, you will continuously be able
    	to kill your opponents with Instant Kill. Being approached by the
    	opponents will activate the Glimpse of Death, and pressing the button
    	that is displayed (either square, circle, X or triangle) successfully,
    	will Instant Kill an opponent.
    
    Skill Attributes
    	Other than the normal skills of slashing and stabbing, there are skills
    	certain attributes (see the list below). By using these attributes at
    	the right moment, you can take advantage of the situation.
    
    	Float:	Throws your opponent into the air.
    	Blast:	Throws your opponent backwards.
    	Strike:	Bash your opponent.
    	Throw:	Throw and possibly strike your opponent.
    	Counter:	Counter an attack.
    	Multi-Hit:	Land multiple attacks at once.
    	Break Defense:	Breaks your opponent's defense.
    	Hold Button Down:	Charge for a period of time to increase attack power.
    
    Main Character's Growth
    	Skills which you have learned and matched will not be forgotten even
    	after you have ended the game. Also, with the Samurai Points you have
    	earned at the end of the game, there are additional stances you can
    	learn. All of these growth elements of the main character can continue
    	on to future game playthroughs.
    
    Fighting Groups and Order
    	In a battle with multiple opponents, the order in which you will be
    	facing each one is already predetermined. The opponent you currently
    	face will have a target icon above him or her. When you want to change
    	the order of the opponents you wish to fight, lightly tap the R2 button
    	and your targeted opponent will change.
    
    Running Away from Battle
    	As you enter a battle, you will lock onto the opponent and the camera
    	angle will be changed to battle mode. When you want to put some
    	distance between yourself and your opponent, or if you wish to run
    	away, hold down the R2 button and move around.
    
    Blunt Attack (Nasa Ke)
    	When you don't want to kill the opponent, you can press the Select
    	button to reverse your blade and use Blunt Attacks. After you have
    	defeated the opponent with a Blunt Attack, they are knocked out but
    	not killed. Also, while you're in Blunt Attack mode, although you will
    	still be able to Parry your opponent's attack, the Glimpse of Death will
    	not activate. If you press the Select button again, you will reverse
    	the blade back to its original, lethal position.
    
    Apologizing in Battle
    	Even if you are in battle, as long as you hold down the L2 button, you
    	will be able to apologize by prostrating yourself on the ground. Whether
    	or not your apology will be accepted, however, depends on the situation
    	and your opponent.
    
    Apologizing in Dialog
    	Apologizing in dialog is a fairly pointless affair. It results, simply,
    	in you “missing” an event. If you apologize during a scene, it will be
    	as if you never saw the scene at all. If you simply want to skip the
    	scene, press the Select button to skip through it (skipping with the
    	Select button allows you to skip a scene while still having that scene
    	count towards your ending).
    
    Obtaining Items
    	By defeating the opponent, there's a chance the person will drop an
    	item or weapon part. Also, if you go near a dead body and press the X
    	button, you can search the body and check if the person has any items.
    	However, this act can decrease the fondness of NPCs around you. You
    	are unable to search knocked-out bodies.

    Weapon Durability:
    	Every weapon has durability. Each time you block or strike, the
    	durability gauge for that weapon will increase. If you do not take
    	any action, the gauge will gradually decrease. If the durability gauge
    	goes over the limit of the durability bar, the durability of that weapon
    	will decrease by one. Once you reach zero, the weapon will break. You
    	can increase the durability and repair your broken weapon at the
    	Blacksmith.
    
    Weapon Growth:
    	Your attack and defense is determined by the ability of your weapon.
    	A new weapon is obtainable by either picking one up from a defeated
    	opponent, buying from a merchant, or through forging your own weapon
    	at the Blacksmith. You can improve the abilities of your weapon by
    	upgrading at the Blacksmith or using certain items. By using your
    	weapon, it will gain experience and level up. Once the level of the
    	weapon goes beyond a certain point, you will be able to learn new
    	skills. Additionally, once the level of the weapon reaches its maximum,
    	the durability will become infinite, making the weapon unbreakable.
    
    Learning Skills and Stances:
    	Every weapon has a stance assigned to it. In every stance, there are
    	unlockable skills that can be learned through battle or using certain
    	items. Commands for the skills you have learned can be viewed in the
    	Skills Learned Screen in the Profile of the Main Menu. Once you have
    	gained enough Samurai Points and achieve the Dual Sword Stance, you
    	will be able to use the Dual Sword and Ninja Dual Sword Stances.

    Weapon: Manji-Kabura
    Description:
    	“A sword held by a wanderer. IT is said that the only one able to
    	fully master the sword is the wanderer, because of his extreme
    	ability.”
    How-To:
    	Speak to the fabled merchant with a Golden Egg in your inventory.
    	You'll find him standing in the boat in the pool at the base of the
    	waterfall in The Road. Speak to him once. Speak to him again and
    	select, “Don't you have anything rarer?” Then select, “Never mind,
    	then.” Finally, say, “Let's trade,” and you will be able to obtain
    	the Manji-Kabura for ten golden eggs.
    
    
    Weapon: Kabura Sutegi
    Description:
    	“This sword was created using the legendary forging method of a far
    	off land. It is said that it was once wielded by a wanderer who
    	completely traversed the legendary caverns.”
    How-To:
    	After you have the Manji-Kabura, speak to the Fabled Merchant and
    	listen to his story about the Kabura-Sutegi. Once you've heard
    	everything, the Nameless Samurai will appear at night in Takatane
    	Village (near the blacksmith's cave). Kill the Nameless Samurai
    	to obtain this weapon.
    
    
    Weapon: Short Green Onion
    Description:
    	“A green onion. Used in cooking.”
    How-To:

    	can also obtain them via some of the jobs Oryo (of Omiki Town)
    	offers.
    
    
    Weapon: My Hoe
    Description:
    	“It's not known whose hoe this is, but it has, 'My Hoe,' written on
    	the grip.”
    How-To:
    	You'll have to kill Shuzen for this weapon—on the Instant Kill
    	difficulty. Bear in mind that there's only a 15% chance that
    	Shuzen will even have the hoe.

    	“A broken stick. An item that every samurai has wielded at least
    	once.”

    	You can find these all over the ground, all over Amana. Sometimes
    	villagers will also drop them (after you kill them, of course.
    
    
    Weapon: Broom
    Description:
    	“Normally used for cleaning. This will require extreme forging
    	if used as a weapon.”
    How-To:
    	Kill Gajiro, the NPC who sings about cleaning in Omiki Town and the

    Gamers new to the series might be a bit confused by a Way of the Samurai
    game. The world is small, you can beat the game in a few hours and, let's
    face it, it's not exactly the prettiest world out there. Way of the Samurai
    games are unique in that they are able to actually do what western developers
    have been bragging about doing (while not getting anywhere close) for years:
    they present players with choices and consequences.
    
    Way of the Samurai 3 allows you to live, for a brief while, as a masterless
    samurai—a ronin—in the waning years of the Sengoku period—the era of warring
    states, a period of intense civil warfare that lasted nearly a century. The
    choices you make in the game effect not only yourself, but everyone you
    encounter. As such, I think it is best for you, the player, to go into the
    game not necessarily knowing what you're going to do. I think a guide is
    ultimately detrimental to the experience, and I therefore STRONGLY 
    recommend that you do NOT use the following ending guide.
    
    The best way to enjoy the game is to simply keep a sheet of paper handy, and
    each time you complete a game, write down the ending number you attained. 
    Play your heart out and when, finally, you can't figure out how to find those
    remaining endings—when it seems you've exhausted every choice presented—then,
    and only then should you seek your answers here.
    
    Please keep in mind that there are multiple paths you may take to get many 
    of the endings—you don't necessarily have to make the exact same choices I
    have outlined. This is why I recommend you make your own choices and seeing
    where that leads you before utilizing this resource.

    1. In the opening scene, when you are approached by the two peasants,
    	choose the first dialog option. (“I've been better.”)
    2. When waking up in Takatane Village, view the scene with Munechika
    	in its entirety. (Leave the house and when the scene starts,
    	don't draw your blade or prostrate yourself.
    3. View the scene with Kota in the rice field (in Takatane Village).
    	When prompted, choose the first dialog option. ("Calm Down.")
    4. Go to Amana Castle and request employment. Participate in the
    	the tournament and win (obviously).
    5. Go to Castle Minori (the Ouka castle). Speak to the guard in the back
    	and view the scene. You will then be forced to fight the guards. Defeat
    	the guards and view the scene to join the Ouka clan.
    6. Go to Castle Minori and watch the scene with Yuma. Choose the
    	second dialog option.
    
    	!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!
    After this point, you cannot return to Castle Minori without triggering
    an automatic event—so do NOT go back until told to do so, or you will
    fail to obtain the ending.
    	!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!
    
    7. Visit Kuchihagahara at night and find Shinnosuke. You'll find him
    	at the small shrine on the cliff overlooking the battlefield,
    	along the path toward Minori Castle. Watch the scene.
    8. Go to Kuchihagahara again. Watch the scene with Shinnosuke and
    	Yuma. After the scene, leave the area without speaking to him.
    9. Once more, to Kuchihagahara. Now watch a scene between Shinnosuke
    	and Osei. Once the scene is done, leave the area.
    10. Again, go to Kuchihagahara. Speak to Shinnosuke and choose the
    	second dialog option.
    11. Go to The Road. Go up to the temple and view the scene with the
    	strange man wearing green.
    12. Go to Takatane Village and speak to Kota. Choose the third speech
    	option to view the scene.
    13. Now, head to Amana Castle. Watch the scene with Shinnosuke. Choose
    	the second dialog option.
    14. Once again, go to Kuchihagahara. Speak to Shinnosuke and choose the
    	first dialog option.
    15. View the event (it's automatic) about the impending Oda invasion.
    16. Go to Munechika's house in Takatane village and watch the scene.
    17. Go to Castle Minori. Speak to Genjuro, and choose the third dialog
    	option. Then go find Shinnosuke and speak with him. He should
    	give you a small box.
    18. Go back into the castle and choose the first dialog option to fight
    	Yuma. Reverse your blade so you do not kill him. After you defeat
    	Yuma (again, without killing him) watch the scene. Leave the
    	Castle to watch the victory scene.
    19. Return to Takatane Village. Go to Munechika's house. Speak to 
    	Shinnosuke and watch the scene. Choose the third dialog
    	option (to sacrifice yourself) when you have the opportunity.
    20. One more time, to Kuchihagahara! Watch the scene and choose the
    	third dialog option. Keep watching, and you'll see two more
    	dialog options. For both of those, choose the first choice.
    21. It's now time for the final battle. Don't get yourself killed,
    	and you'll be treated to the ending. You'll also have to keep
    	both Shinnosuke and Yuma alive, or you'll get stuck with
    	ending five instead.

    NOTE: Because of the nature of this ending, large dialog trees have to be
    written out for the walkthrough. What that means to you is that here you may
    find mild spoilers for the story. Read at your own peril.
    
    1. In the opening scene, when you meet with the two peasants, choose the first
    	dialog option.
    2. After waking up in Takatane Village, view the scene with Munechika. Speak
    	with him afterward and choose the third dialog option.
    3. View the scene with Kota in the rice field (in Takatane Village).
    	When prompted, choose the first dialog option. ("Calm Down.")
    
    	!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!
    To obtain the second ending, you'll have to build a relationship with Osei.
    You must speak to her at every opportunity, and choose your words carefully.
    Essentially, you need to be mature and respectful. You also MUST refrain
    from doing ANY jobs. Remember, do NOT do any jobs! The only way to actually
    see how strong your affinity is with Osei is by her physical location in the
    yard. Each time you go through two conversation paths, she moves. You'll know
    your relationship is sufficiently strong when she leaves Munechika's house
    and stands in the middle of the vegetable fields (just above where Kota
    usually practices).
    	!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!
    
    4. Go to Omiki Town and view Araragi's scene (at the bridge).

    	scene with Setsuen (the man in green). After the scene, be sure
    	to speak with him.
    7. Go to Castle Minori (the Ouka castle). Speak to the guard in the back and
    	view the scene. You will then be forced to fight the guards. Defeat the
    	guards and view the scene to join the Ouka clan.
    8. Go back to the Highway and view the second scene with Setsuen.
    	Kind of funny how he can be all enigmatic, yet completely
    	obvious at the same time, huh?
    9. Go to Takatane Village and speak with Munechika. He will ask you
    	to trade in your sword for a hoe—tell him you'll think about it.
    10. At night, go to Kuchihagahara and speak with Shinnosuke. You'll find
    	him at the cliff along the path toward Castle Minori. View the 
    	scene and choose the second dialog option.
    11. Go to Takatane Village and speak with Kota to view the scene about
    	“Kota's sword.”
    12. Visit The Road and night to see the scene regarding Setsuen.

    	When prompted, choose the last dialog option (should be obvious).

    scene (step 14) will not appear and you will not earn the second ending.

    14. At Takatane village, view the scene with Osei (in the fields near

    	and head toward the throne room at the top of the castle. View the
    	scene with Yuma and, when prompted, choose the first dialog option.
    	You will now fight Yuma. DO NOT KILL HIM. Remember to defeat him
    	using blunt attacks.
    18. Return to Takatane Village one last time and view the scene with Osei.
    19. View the scene and prepare yourself. After the scene, you'll be fighting
    	Fujimori Shuzen. Once you've defeated him, you will be treated to the
    	second ending. Personally, it's one of my favorites.

    	shut the door. Then, murder Genjuro. You should then view a scene

    Now, I realize that finding all of the endings can be quite difficult at
    times, and I also realize that my step-by-step guide (which merely outlines
    a single, possible path to get to each ending) can be a bit difficult to
    follow. With that in mind, I've decided to create a second “walk-through”
    for the endings here—essentially, I will simply give an overview of each
    ending. Just enough information that you should be able to find out how
    to get the ending on your own, without getting bogged down in the minutiae
    of the step-by-step guide.
    
    Ending #1:
    	The goal of this ending is to, essentially, save everyone that 
    	you can. You'll need to work with Shinnosuke and the people of
    	Takatane Village. You'll need to make sure you save Yuma's life
    	when Shuzen attacks Minori Castle, and when you meet with Osei,
    	Shinnosuke and Munichika in the end, you'll need to “sacrifice”
    	yourself by taking the Sakura Dagger out to the Fujimori forces,
    	and take Osei's place as the “heir” of the clan. Yuma must be
    	alive for you to get this ending.
    
    Ending #2:
    	This ending can be infuriatingly difficult to obtain. Basically,
    	you need to build a relationship with Osei—you need to get her
    	to fall in love with you. When the Fujimori attack the Ouka
    	Castle, you'll need to save Yuma's life. Then, when you meet back
    	up in Takatane Village, you'll have the option to leave Amana
    	with Osei, and thereby attain the (rather nice) second ending.
    
    Ending #3:
    	Very similar to the first two endings, to get this one you'll need
    	let Yuma die in the Fujimori attack. Then, once again, you'll have
    	to decide to sacrifice your own life so that Osei might live—and 
    	this time you'll actually have to follow through with it. In terms
    	of the “Way of the Samurai,” I tend to view this ending as the truest
    	to Samurai philosophy.
    
    Ending #4:
    	Similar to the above endings, only with a more self-absorbed twist.
    	When Shuzen comes looking for the heir, force Osei to go outside and
    	don't make any move to help her.
    
    Ending #5:
    	Work with Shinnosuke before Nobunaga arrives. Then, be sure to save
    	Yuma in the Fujimori assault. You'll then need to convince Osei that
    	the people of Amana need her as the air of the Sakura, and finally,
    	you'll need to defeat Shuzen.
    
    Ending #6:
    	Once more, your choice plays out in the same event.  You'll need
    	to convince Osei to turn herself over to Shuzen's mercy, only this
    	time you'll need to rush to her rescue. Take out all of the soldiers
    	and then deny Shuzen at the end.
    
    Ending #7:
    	Murder Osei after meeting Munechika. After Nobunaga's forces begin
    	their march on Amana, you'll see an event where Shinnosuke challenges
    	you to a duel. Defeat him, one way or the other.
    
    Ending #8:
    	Work with Shinnosuke and save Yuma during the attack on Minori Castle.
    	Then, kill Osei and take the Sakura dagger for yourself.
    
    Ending #9:
    	Work with the Fujimori Clan. Kill Shinnosuke, and later kill Shuzen
    	himself to usurp his position as head of the Fujimori clan.
    
    Ending #10:
    	When Shuzen is drunk, kill him.
    
    Ending #11:
    	After the event where you meet him, kill Shuzen. (Do not kill Shuzen
    	in the scene where he is drunk).
    
    Ending #12:
    	Work with the Fujimori clan and build a relationship with Kirie. Go
    	after the Ouka clan and kill Genjuro. Then rescue Shuzen at Amana
    	Castle and choose to serve him.
    
    Ending #13:
    	Once more, your choice plays out in the same event.  You'll need
    	to convince Osei to turn herself over to Shuzen's mercy, only this
    	time you'll need to rush to her rescue. Take out all of the soldiers
    	and then accept Shuzen at the end.
    
    Ending #14:
    	After seeing the Sakura Dagger, inform Kirie. Then, do not help
    	Shinnosuke rescue Osei at the end of the game.
    
    Ending #15:
    	Work with Araragi to defeat Fujimori Shuzen.
    
    Ending #16:
    	Work with Araragi and betray Fujimori Shuzen.
    
    Ending #17:
    	Take over the Ouka Clan and repel the Fujimori assault on Castle 
    	Minori.
    
    Ending #18:
    	Join the Ouka Clan and build a relationship with Genjuro. When
    	Genjuro flees Amana, go with him.
    
    Ending #19:
    	Build a relationship with Itsuse and help her defeat Shuzen.
    
    Ending #20:
    	???
    
    Ending #21:
    	Work with Setsuen to destabilize Amana in preparation for Nobunaga's
    	invasion. Accept his mission to kill Fujimori Shuzen.

    In Way of the Samurai 3 there are several NPCs who you can “partner”
    with. They will fight along side you and occasionally comment on what
    you are doing, and what the people you meet along your journey do.
    Through your interactions with your partner, you can build up an
    affinity—a relationship—that culminates in a romance. Fall in love
    hard enough, and you'll soon find yourselves living together.

    		(apologize) and stay on the ground until Momiji sheathes her
    		sword. Speak to her again and tell her that, “You have reason
    		to kill me.” Then, speak to her a third time. She will say that
    		she does not know what to do with her life. You can either tell
    		her to make up her own mind (she thinks of suicide) or ask her
    		to partner up with you. If you choose the wrong option, you can
    		initiate dialog again and start over. So long as you do not kill
    		her, you should be fine.

    As you spend time with a partner, you'll build a relationship. When
    you max out your partner's relationship, you'll be able to move in
    together, which can yield some very tangible benefits. And, just like
    in real life, there's going to be some give in take. Before you invite
    someone into your house, you may want to think about it a bit. Some
    partners offer nice benefits—such as increasing the amount of money
    you have saved—while others are not so nice. Some borrow money, and others
    steal swords. Just be careful, and you should be okay. If you absolutely
    must know, the effects of each partner are as follows:
    
    Dona		She will steal swords from your sword safe if left home alone.
    Ensen		He will occasionally bring you a new sword (added to sword safe).
    Hiiragi		If your health is low, she will give you a healing item (food).
    Hinagiku	Distracts enemies in battle, will hold on your money, but will
    		also steal some money from you from time to time.
    Kasumi		None.
    Kana		She can hold accessories.
    Minamo		She can hold items and will occasionally give you a new sword.
    Misaki		She kicks enemies.
    Momiji		With full health, she will occasionally grant you a new skill.
    Nyanya		Will break swords (kept in sword safe) if left home alone).
    Osada		Will let you trade with a dead merchant once each day.
    Otome		She kicks dead people and breaks things.
    Yukino		She can hold weapons.
    Yuzu		She will lower the prices of items in the shops.
    
    As for raising relationships, it's fairly simple. Keep your partner's
    health up (you can give them items to replenish their health) and
    participate in mini-games together (sword-catching, mochi making, etc.).
    
    __                                                                    __

    You'll be able to earn money and respect in Amana by completing various
    jobs. There are four people in the game that act as sources for these
    jobs. Misae, an elderly woman who can be found near your house in
    Takatane village; Oryo, in Omiki Town; Joji, in Castle Minori; and
    Kiyonari, in Amana Castle.
    
    Keep in mind that you will get repeats of the same job (often) and you
    will get variations of the same job. Don't worry, it's natural.
    
    If you anger a faction sufficiently, you may be tasked with a relatively
    straight-forward job to earn yourself back into their good graces. If, for
    example, you find yourself on the wrong side of the Fujimori Clan, Kiyonari
    will give you the job of killing 100 Ouka Clan warriors at Kuchihagahara.
    These jobs aren't jobs, per se, but rather redeeming actions you can take
    so that you can access a certain jobs after being cut off for misbehavior.

    Job #1: Misae's Underwear!
    Description:
    	“Find Misae's favorite underwear that she dropped somewhere in
    	Kuchihagahara. It is inside her Furoshiki, a wrapped cloth. Find it
    	and return it to Misae.”
    Tips: “Watch out for the sneaky crows!”
    How-To:
    	The Furoshiki is small and round like a stone, so it can be very
    	hard to see. It's pale-green in color, and can typically be found
    	along the road leading toward the Ouka fortress (the path with 
    	the small shrine and bridge). It also sometimes appears near the
    	exit to Amana Castle. There are about five different places where the
    	Furoshiki will spawn, so just keep your eyes open and you should be
    	able to find it easily. Be careful on your way back, as the crows
    	will attack you to steal the underwear (God only knows why). To
    	avoid the crows, simply move in a zig-zagging line. If you're
    	paying attention, you shouldn't have any trouble.
    
    
    Job #2: Wave of Silver Blades!
    Description:
    	“Eliminate 100 outcasts accused of trying to steal money from the
    	villagers. Proceed to the Guard Gate and get rid of them all in
    	order to win back the villagers' trust.”
    Tips: “A samurai never flees from battle.”
    How-To:
    	This is an easy mission. All you need to do is kill 100 enemies
    	at the Guard Gate. Use instant-kills, and you'll be done before
    	you know it.
    
    
    Job #3: Can You Eliminate 100?
    Description:
    	“A gang of outcasts arrived at the Guard Gate, and the villains are
    	plotting a crime against Amana. Go there and dispose of them in
    	order to win back the villagers' trust.”
    Tips: “A samurai never flees from battle.”
    How-To:
    	...coming soon.
    
    
    Job #4: Runaway Children
    Description:
    	“Three children ran away from home after being scolded because of
    	their recent pranks. Proceed to the Guard Gate and find the children.”
    Tips: “Be careful with the kids and keep moving.”
    How-To:
    	Yikes. Boy can this be a frustrating mission. First off, you need to
    	know that there are children in Guard Gate who are NOT part of the
    	group you're seeking, including Takatane Mask. Both are near the
    	Tea House. The children you're looking for are called Brother, Younger
    	Brother, and Sister. You'll find them hiding behind various things
    	at random spots along the edge of the area. Just be patient and
    	methodical and don't forget to closely inspect the areas near the exit.
    
    
    Job #5: Punish the Food Thief!
    Description:
    	“A Jumbo Radish grown with loving care by the villagers has been
    	stolen. The thief is a man from Omiki Town. Use Blunt Attack to
    	properly punish him.”
    Tips: “Don't kill.”
    How-To:
    	It doesn't matter what dialog you choose, or even if you try to
    	speak to the criminal at all. The moment you end conversation
    	(or attack him) he will start running. He will NOT leave the
    	area, so you've got plenty of time. He will occasionally pause
    	to catch his breath. If he goes toward an exit, simply back
    	away and he will come running back. Try to fight him away
    	from other people—sometimes a wandering ronin will decide
    	to join in the fight, and kill the criminal. I would
    	recommend seeking out the criminal at night.
    
    
    Job #6: Are we there yet?
    Description:
    	“Misae is not feeling so well today. Push her gently to her
    	destination. Colliding with her three times will result in failure.”
    Tips: “Don't draw your sword.”
    How-To:
    	A mildly easy job, the hardest thing here is simply being patient.
    	It can help to push the wrinkly old bag against a wall so you can
    	prod her forward a bit more efficiently. Just keep your thumb
    	nice and gentle and you shouldn't have too much trouble.
    
    
    Job #7: Village Girl Rescue Operation!
    Description:
    	“Rescue the girl who's been kidnapped due to her father's debt
    	to the bandits. The bandits can be found on The Road.”
    Tips: “Be sure to escort her safely.”
    How-To:
    	Go to The Road and head toward the two men who want you to do the sword
    	catching mini-game. Head down the stairs and through the small tunnel
    	and deal with the bandits however you see fit. They will wake up if you
    	get too close to them, so I suggest waking them up one at a time and
    	leading them away to beat 'em up. Once that is done, speak to the girl
    	who you will find either inside the hut, or behind the barrels to the
    	side. Tell her you're there to rescue her, and then lead her back
    	through the tunnel and up the stairs. When you reach the top of the
    	stairs, the job will end.
    
    
    Job #8: Stop the War!
    Description:
    	“A conflict between Fujimori and Ouka Clan has developed in
    	Kuchihagahara. Suppress the fight, or the tax collector will show
    	no mercy.”
    Tips: “You can't just sit and watch.”
    How-To:
    	You need to kill everyone, which may seem like a tough task but
    	it's really not. You can either kill the enemies or use blunt
    	attacks, and the enemies will NOT target you until you attack them.
    	You cannot, however, simply wait for everyone to kill each other.
    	You're gonna have to step into the action yourself.
    
    
    Job #9: Stop the Violence!
    Description:
    	“The farmers have been suffering oppression from the Fujimori Clan.
    	Three villagers, who couldn't stand the poverty any longer, turned
    	into thugs and headed for Omiki Town. Stop them at any cost.”
    Tips: “You don't need to get into unnecessary fights.”
    How-To:
    	You'll need to find the thugs and get them to stop what they're doing.
    	Most of the time, you'll have to knock them out or kill them, but
    	they can sometimes be persuaded to leave without violence.
    
    
    Job #10: Assassinate Lord Shuzen!
    Description:
    	“Shuzen Fujimori has been oppressing the villagers with severe taxes.
    	According to an informer, Lord Shuzen will be in Omiki Town tonight.
    	Go there and kill him!”
    Tips: “Lord Shuzen would probably stay somewhere nice for the night.”
    How-To:
    	The inn you're looking for is the one north of the Omiki Smithy.
    	Naturally, you won't be able to kill Shuzen, or even fight him,
    	and will face instead one of his nasty little ninjas. The Ninja
    	will beg for mercy, but if you sheathe your weapon you will lose
    	the mission. It's a pretty straightforward fight.
    
    
    Job #11: Misae's Challenge!
    Description:
    	“Misae is challenging you to a duel! She'll have no regrets,
    	whatever the results. Proceed to Kuchihagahara tonight.”
    Tips: “Fight like you mean it, if you want to stay alive.”
    How-To:
    	...coming soon.

    	“Deliver a letter to Kiyonari's servant. The servant will be waiting

    	Oryo.”
    Tips: “Oryo never mentioned needing to deliver it while Kiyonari's servant
    	is alive.”
    How-To:
    	You'll find the messenger just outside of Amana Castle.

    Job #15: Silence the Big Mouth!
    Description:
    	“A Fujimori minion has been bragging about his new weapon. Proceed
    	to Amana Castle and break his weapon as punishment.”
    Tips: “The green spear looks cheap, and defending just might be the key.”
    How-To:
    	Just like the in-game tip says, don't bother attacking. Simply
    	keep your guard up and let the poor sap break his own spear.
    
    
    Job #16: Beauty and the Beast!
    Description:

    Tips: “Not all who are kidnapped are thankful after being rescued.”
    How-To:
    	Go to The Road and search out the kidnapper. You can usually find him

    	off one of Fujimori's men.”
    Tips: “Fujimori soldiers tend to like good radish.”
    How-To:
    	The point of this job is to hire a hitman. The guy you need to kill
    	is inside the gate, so you can't reach him yourself. Look for a
    	Fujimori warrior and ask him to kill someone. First, he'll ask you
    	for money (50-300 yen), and then he'll say he's hungry. This means
    	you have to give him a radish. He'll then go kill your mark and 
    	inform you once the deed is done.

    Tips: “Be aware of where you are drawing your weapon.”
    How-To:
    	Find the guy named “Cocky Bastard.” Speak with him and he'll

    Job #24: Ouka Clan Honor
    Description:

    Tips: None.
    How-To:

    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	Speak to Joji a second time to open up an extra dialog option
    	for more information. He will tell you where Genjuro was last
    	seen. Genjuro will NOT be in the area that Joji states, but

    Job #27: 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.”
    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	You will need to go to Omiki Town and search out the “Angry Lady.”
    	Speak with her and she'll mention some trouble with the Ouka Clan.
    	You'll need to tell her you're sorry, but she'll want more than
    	that. You'll need to then actually bow down—prostrate yourself on
    	the ground—and let her have her way with you. Eventually she will
    	forgive you, or tire herself out, and you'll be done.

    	samurai in Kuchihagahara. Defeat the samurai and rescue our
    	Genjuro.”
    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	This is pretty easy. All you need to do is find the dog with

    Job #29: Hostage!
    Description:
    	“A member of Ouka clan is being held hostage by Fujimori's men.
    	They are in Kuchihagahara. Go and rescue him.”
    Tips: “Try not getting the hostage involved in the fight.”
    How-To:
    	Go to Kuchihagahara and find the Fujimori soldiers ganging up
    	on the lone Ouka man. You'll need to be fast, or the hostage
    	will die. You'll want to draw the enemies away from the 
    	hostage (they'll attack you one at a time) and be careful
    	of your own position, as well. It only takes a single
    	hit—by anyone's blade-to kill the poor sod.
    
    
    Job #30: Ouka's Territory!
    Description:
    	“A fight between a group of outcasts and Fujimori Clan is
    	intruding on Ouka Clan's territory, The Road. In the name of 
    	Ouka, go and get rid of all of them.”
    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	Dash around The Road 'till you find the two fights and kill
    	everyone you see. You'll need to kill them yourself, so
    	don't just sit there and watch the carnage.
    
    
    Job #31: 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 momento of his mother. Return
    	the Small Box kept inside the Guard Gate.”
    Tips: “Look for a buddy that can help you do the job.”
    How-To:
    	Pick up the Dried Fish from Joji and go to the Guard Gate. Find
    	the cat running around and run into him a few times. Once he
    	gives up, speak to him and give him the fish. Speak to him again,
    	and then give him the job. The cat will then go over to the small
    	building the Fujimori typically guard and retrieve a small box
    	for you. You'll need to return the box to Joji to complete
    	the mission, but you can keep giving the cat fish and the cat
    	will bring you a variety of random items.
    
    
    Job #32: Fearless Bandits!
    Description:
    	“Eliminate three men who became thieves without Joji's permission
    	and make an example out of them. The traitors are hiding in
    	Amana Castle.”
    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	You'll need to find three thiefs. They'll typically be in the
    	outskirts of the castle, and though their locations are (of
    	coures) randomized, you'll frequently find them near Araragi's
    	house.
    
    
    Job #33: Shameful Fun!
    Description:
    	“In order to strengthen the power of the Ouka Clan, execute Shameful
    	Slash on every woman gathered together in Kuchihagahara. Old ladies
    	have nothing to do with this.”
    Tips: “Skills that attack the lower region of the body make it a lot
    	easier to Shameful Slash.”
    How-To:
    	This job can be a bit tough, so it may be a good idea to save before
    	attempting it. You'll want a sword that won't be hitting the women
    	by accident—so the starting sword, with its vertical slash, is ideal.
    	The women run all over, so you may be better served to be patient and
    	stand still in one place—letting the women come to you. The old women
    	run slow, so be careful around them. You'll fail the mission if you
    	slash any of the girls. If you have to hunt down a woman, remember
    	to walk, do NOT run. If you run, you'll end up changing the attack to
    	a forward thrust, which will hurt them and cause you to fail the job.
    	Overall, you'll need to be very, very focused for this mission, and
    	equally patient.

    	Any mission where you have to hunt down someone can be a lot of trouble.
    	First time I tried this, a guard tried to fight me—and inadvertently

    	Success in this job will remove your stigma.”
    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	A great mission to farm for items and parts, just remember to pace
    	yourself and keep an eye on the counter (it'll tell you how many 
    	enemies you've killed by multiples of ten). It's also a great way
    	to learn skills—so if you want to repeat it, you can, any time
    	you want. All ya' have to do is piss off the Fujimori again.

    Tips: “Bring the babies back to Kiyonari before doing anything to the

    How-To:
    	After you speak with Kiyonari, go to the location indicated. You
    	will see two brightly-dressed women wearing hats. Speak to them
    	and give them the money. Now, they will either tell you where the
    	child is, or they will attack you. If they attack you, use blunt
    	attacks to defeat them. Once defeated, one of the women will either
    	drop the baby, or one will tell you where the baby is. If you knock
    	them out, you get to keep the ransom for yourself.

    	Gate. The identity of the killer is unknown. Wait until nightfall and
    	eliminate the killer.”
    Tips: “Blunt attacking may save your life.”
    How-To:
    	You'll find the ghost near the Dojo, in Guard Gate. She's hiding
    	behind some stone tablets, but she puts out a big ol' thought
    	bubble so she shouldn't be too hard to find. When you battle her,
    	she say a bunch of creepy stuff and, being undead and all, can
    	regenerate her health when she prostrates herself down on the
    	ground, simultaneously draining your own health. After you kill 
    	the ghost, your HP will be reduced to zero. You can either avoid this
    	by defeating her via blunt attacks, or simply make sure you have a
    	spare healing item for -after- you kill the ghost. Once she's dead
    	(er, again) she'll drop a straw doll, which you can then give to

    Tips: “Don't give them a chance to sheathe their weapons.”
    How-To:
    	The key to this mission is to find the three ninjas hiding in
    	Castle Minori. They tyically hide in high places, and once you
    	find them you'll need to kill them quickly or they will hie
    	again. The hiding places are randomized, but you'll often be
    	able to find one of them on the roof of the horse stable.

    Tips: None.
    How-To:
    	As is the norm with jobs of this type, you're better of doing it
    	sometime after dark, when most NPCs are asleep. You'll have do 
    	deal with a Wild Samurai and a handful of watchmen, which shouldn't
    	prove too troubling. If any of the guards escape, the general

    How-To:
    	After you kill your “enemy,” remember to pick up his weapon.
    	This is the ONLY time you'll be able to grab it, and odds are
    	you're not going to want to run through all those missions again.

    Vegetable Toss
    	Location: Takatane Village & Castle Minori
    	Time: Morning to Evening
    	Reward: 300 Yen
    		This is a pretty simple game... the peasant woman will toss
    		daikon (radishes) into the air for you to cut. She'll also
    		toss Jizo (giant stone statues) at you, which can take out about
    		250 HP if they hit you. The important thing is timing. Choose
    		your action when the object being thrown at you is at the height
    		of its arc—before it starts to come down. If it's a statue, push
    		the left analog stick up to dodge. If it's a radish, square to
    		slice. If there are multiple daikon incoming, tap the square
    		button rapidly to perform a simple combo.
    
    Tuna Filet
    	Location: Amana Castle / Posting Station
    	Time: Morning to Evening
    	Reward: 300 Yen
    		This mini-game can be a bit annoying, but at least you won't
    		get a game over if you lose. You need to slice up a giant tuna,
    		but simply mashing square (usually) won't do the trick. You need
    		to cut the fish on either side, so cut until you start missing,
    		and then move around to the other side of the fish and keep
    		hacking away 'till the job is done.
    
    Temple Bell
    	Location: The Road
    	Time: Morning to Evening
    	Reward: 300 Yen
    		This is a nice and easy game. Once again, it's all about timing.
    		You'll be moving the left analog stick to the right and to the
    		left—keep your eye on the indicator at the bottom of the screen.
    		Keep swinging from side to side until your able to get the bar
    		inside the red area (the closer you are to the far left, the
    		higher your score). Press X when the bar is fully extended to
    		the left. The closer you are to 100%, the higher your score, and
    		the higher your score, the more money you will earn.
    
    Mochi Making
    	Location: Takatane Village / Guard Gate
    	Time: Morning to Evening
    	Reward: 300 Yen
    		A very simple mini-game, the hardest part is getting a partner.
    		Anyway, simply follow the onscreen prompts and try to hold a
    		steady rhythm. Remember, you'll only ever need to press the
    		analog stick down, so focus on the face buttons you'll need
    		to press.
    
    Bare-Handed Sword Dance
    	Location: The Road / Posting Station
    	Time: Morning to Evening
    	Reward: 300 Yen
    		This can be a tough one. Like the vegetable toss, failure
    		here means death—not the best way to get a game-over. Just
    		be sure to save before starting this one, and you should be fine.
    		You'll need to have a partner before playing this game, by the
    		way. Anyway, the object is to catch your partner's sword mid-
    		swing. You do this by pressing the analog sticks close together.
    		As with the vegetable toss, try to time yourself with the arc
    		of the blade. It may take some time for you get the timing
    		worked out.

    A quick guide to the terms involved here: the “Day” is the day when
    the item is available for purchase at said shop. If there's just a single
    number, that means that on that day, and on all the days following that day,
    you will be able to find that particular item in that particular shop. If
    there's an X before the number, that means “multiple.” For example, “Day x5”
    means you can find the item in that store on day 5, and on every day that
    is a multiple of five—10, 15, 20, etc.

    There are plenty of different items to collect in Way of the Samurai 3,
    from the basic healing items that replenish HP, to the special items
    that grant permanent stat increases to either your samurai or your weapon.
    There are unique items that can be sold for money, items that can be
    crafted into powerful weapons, and accessories that can be worn. Many
    items can be purchased from the various shops in the game, others are
    unlocked through the accumulation of Samurai Points, and many, many more
    can only be found after killing enemies.
          __                                                        __

    There are a TON of different weapons in the game, and—face it—neither
    you nor I care much about most of 'em. This list will deal solely with
    the unique, special swords that you are likely to specifically seek
    out.
    
    Keep in mind that weapon stats are partially RANDOM. That means that
    a specific sword, when found, can have different stats each time
    you obtain it—usually on a scale of plus or minus ten to fifteen.
    The stats I have listed are example stats, so don't be too concerned
    if you find a sword that's a bit different than what I've listed here.
    
    
    Sword: Koru-no-ha (?/?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight: ???		Durability: ???
    	A nice Ninja sword. You'll need to find and kill the Samurai Hunter,
    	who only appears at night, in order to get it. Please bear in mind
    	that it only has a 50% chance of dropping.
    
    Sword: Kuro-Tonbo (?/?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight: ???		Durability: ???
    	A Ninja sword with some ridiculously painful moves, if you want it,
    	you're going to have to kill Kirie first.
    
    Sword: Kurotaka (?/?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight: ???		Durability: ???
    	Dropped by the mysterious Ninja you encounter near the temple at
    	The Road in one of Setsuen's events.
    
    Sword: Muramasa (1/3)
    Attack:  38		Defense: -37
    Weight:   0		Durability: 3
    	This is a nice, red-bladed Ninja sword you can obtain by killing
    	Otome, the shabby old woman who appears at The Road around Day 15.
    
    Sword: Ookuronama (?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight:   3		Durability: ?
    	Also known as the Dai-Kuronama in Way of the Samurai 1 and 2, you
    	can obtain this dandy little blade by completing the job “Misae's
    	Challenge.” Refer to the Jobs section for details.
    
    Sword: Sayoshigure (?/?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight: ???		Durability: ???
    	One of the nicer Ninja swords. You'll have to find and kill the
    	Samurai Hunter to get it. It only has a 50% drop rate.
    
    Sword: Shirai-tou (?/?)
    Attack: ???		Defense: ???
    Weight: ???		Durability: ???
    	A nice sword of the draw-stance, it's also very easy to find. Each
    	new game spawns this blade inside the large stump on the path toward
    	the main shrine in The Road. You'll need to jump onto the large rock
    	in front of the stump first, and then you'll be able to jump from it
    	to the interior of the stump.

    While there are no cheats per se, there are a number of different... shall
    we say “unethical” tactics you may employ to make the game a bit easier
    for you. Remember, you've got nothing to lose here... but your moral
    character.
    
    
    Easy Samurai Points:
    	Everything you unlock in the game, accessories, skins, special
    	options, new difficulties, etcetera, are obtained by earning
    	a specific number of Samurai points. And, lucky for us, there's
    	a simple method to unlock EVERYTHING in the game within fifteen
    	minutes. Simply start out a new game and, when confronting the
    	peasants, either tell them to go away, or draw your sword.
    	Then go to Takatane Village. Steal a radish from the fields and
    	eat it. Then go down to the shop and draw your sword. DO NOT
    	ATTACK. Wait for the guard to kill you. You should get the
    	Vegetarian title, which nets about 700 Samurai Points on normal,
    	1000 on hard, and 1200 on instant-kill difficulties. Simply repeat
    	until you get the “message from the developers,” which will
    	inform you that everything is unlocked.
    
    Easy Weapon Mastery
    	First, you'll need to buy a bunch of scrolls from Uepo, a merchant
    	at the Posting Station. He won't have the scrolls you need until
    	after Day 5, and you'll have to have a fair bit of money to make
    	the purchase. 20,000 Yen or so should do it. Spend all of your
    	money on scrolls, and then press L1 and the buy/sell screen. Say,
    	"Give my money back," and then kill the merchant. (You'll also 
    	have to kill a guard). Make sure to collect the money you spent
    	before you leave Amana. You can repeat this indeffinitely to master
    	the skills for the bare hand, dual sword and dual ninja sword
    	stances.
    
    Never Lose Money
    	Buying stuff can be pretty expensive—and upgrading weapons even more
    	so. Tired of seeing your stash constantly dwindling? Simply kill the
    	merchant when your business with them is concluded. If you spend
    	12000 yen upgrading your weapons at the blacksmith, you can kill
    	the blacksmith and get your 12000 Yen back—along with his hammer and,
    	if you loot the corpse, possibly an item, too.
    
    Finding the Fabled Merchant:
    	The Fabled Merchant sells some very nice stuff, but can be a bit
    	hard to find. He only appears in his boat (in the waterfall pool
    	at The Road) after you've seen three events. View four events,
    	and he'll be gone until you see a sixth event. To keep him there
    	as long as you like, simply view three events and no more. Remember,
    	if you have a job active, events will NEVER start—not so long as the
    	job is active, of course.
    
    Finding Golden Eggs
    	One of the more sought-after items in the game, Golden Eggs can be
    	pretty tough to find if you don't know where to look. There are several
    	ways to obtain golden eggs. First, if you defeat the Sensei at the Dojo,
    	she will give you a golden egg if you defeat her without killing her
    	(blunt attack). You may also buy them from the shop in Takatane Village
    	(see the Shops section). You may also obtain two Golden Eggs if you 
    	reunite the two Dojima brothers (you get one egg from each brother).
    	Golden Eggs are also dropped rarely by peasants, and more frequently
    	from the Fabled Merchant. You may also obtain Golden Eggs from several
    	of the jobs, but I won't say which ones to avoid spoilers.
    	
    500 Yen Every Day:
    	This isn't so much a cheat, as it is a little-known aspect of the game.
    	When you take over the Ouka Clan (join the clan, wait for Yuma and
    	Itsuse to leave the room, and then kill Genjuro) you'll also get 
    	access to the castle's coffers. The next day, visit the Ouka job
    	broker. Every day he'll give you can ask for as much as 1000 yen, but
    	if you ask for 1000 more than twice, he'll go away and you'll be screwed.
    	You're better off playing it safe and just asking for 500. Repeat as
    	often as you desire—but be careful, if you get caught up in any Inkling,
    	the story will quickly progress and you will lose all access to the
    	Broker.
    
    Things You May Not Know:
    1. You can fast-travel to any location by using your world map.
    2. You can alter the size, shape, and placement of ANY of the
       accessories in the game.
    3. You can unlock the  option to make your character invisible.
    4. You can unlock the option to change the color of blood in the game.
    5. Pressing square after selecting an NPC skin will allow you to use the
       “normal” movesets instead of the NPC's movesets.
    6. If you press triangle immediately after using X to pick up a sword,
       (while the sword is still in your hand) you will throw the sword you
       just picked up at your currently-selected target.

    Q: I can't find Way of the Samurai 3 anywhere! What should I do?
    A: Cross your fingers and pray. There seem to have been some very
       serious distribution problems with Way of the Samurai 3, so this
       is a common problem. You can check your local stores, but odds are
       you won't find any copies—I can only recommend that you check online.
       Personally, after trying and failing three times to find a copy at
       Gamestop, I went ahead and ordered from Amazon.com.
    
    Q: How do I unlock new faces, clothing and accessories?
    A: Play the game and don't be an ass. No, really. You'll unlock new 
       items to customize your character based upon how many Samurai Points
       you earn once you finish a game. Keep in mind that evil deeds will
       ultimately subtract from your Samurai Points—so you'll have to play
       nice if you want a reward.
    
    Q: How do I avoid losing Samurai Points?
    A: Act as a “true” Samurai would—don't go picking fights. Don't go around
       murdering people. Apologize if you do something wrong. And if you must
       fight, you don't have to kill—remember, you can use the blunt side
       of your sword!
    
    Q: How do I give an item to an NPC?
    A: Approach an NPC so that the NPC's name is visible. Then go into your
       item menu, select the item you which to give, and select “give.” That
       item will then be given to the NPC you have “selected.”
    
    Q: How do I play as an NPC?
    A: Finish a game with more than 8000 Samurai Points, and you will have
       the option to play as an NPC the next time you go into the Character
       Creation menu.
    
    Q: Why isn't this FAQ finished yet?
    A: Because I'm just one, lone sop, and in case you haven't realized it yet,
       this game is bloody gigantic! I've soaked a lot of time into it already,
       but I tell ya' ...it feels like I've only scratched the surface.
    
    Q: Would you accept help with this Guide?
    A: Almost certainly. If you can contribute something (several people have
       already done so) simply e-mail me. Anything, no matter so small, is
       fine. So long as it's not information I already have, I'll be more
       than glad to use your information and credit you accordingly.
    
    Q: I've noticed that several people have contributed information to this
       guide. What happens if two people submit the same information?
    A: In that case I would (and already have) credit both people. I typically
       update the FAQ every week, and so long as you're sending me something
       that's not in the FAQ currently posted on GameFAQs, provided I haven't
       ascertained the information on my own, I will credit you. If ten people
       people email me to say  X number should be Y, I credit all ten people.
    
    Q: What should I do if I'm unable to find out what I want in your guide?
    A: You may either email me (mwulf.0079@gmail.com) or ask on the Way of the
       Samurai 3 BBS at GameFAQs.com.
    
    Q: Why didn't you respond to my email?
    A: There are two possible reasons. First, it's possible that your email was
       caught in my spam filter. I generally scan through my spam folder before
       purging it, but it's entirely possible I deleted a “real” email by
       accident. It's also very possible that I HAVE responded to your email,
       and you simply haven't received the reply yet. Email isn't always
       instantaneous, ya' know. I read every email I see and always reply
       (if necessary). Before re-sending an email, or emailing me again to ask
       me whether or not I revived your first email, please... wait a day or
       two.
