"A quiet farming village near the coast."
Ryomura Village is the first safe location that Sinjid arrives to. It is in this farming village that Captain Masaru and the imperial guards take cover while plotting against the Shogun.
Note : There are two unused characters named Kaede and Ichii the Rock
Imperial Guard x3
There are three Imperial Guards in Ryomura Village that have taken cover here under the leadership of Captain Masaru.
The first one of them, at the far left side of the village waits for Sinjid to arrive to Ryomura for the first time. When Sinjid arrives, the Imperial Guard directs him towards Captain Masaru. He also talks about how he misses the mainland.
The second Imperial Guard can be found in the camp, to the left of Captain Masaru. He informs Sinjid that hitting an enemy from behind hurts them more, but tells him that it's a dirty tactic.
The last of the three Imperial Guards can be found in the camp, to the right of Captain Masaru. He gives Sinjid tactical advice about how to block attacks.
All three of them disappear after Sinjid returns from the Burial Grounds, almost certainly kidnapped along with Captain Masaru and Kasumi.
Sutaku the Grey
Sutaku the Grey is a character located to the left of the inn. Upon talking to him for the first time, he asks Sinjid if he is interested in making some money. After Sinjid shows interest, he says that he is looking for a certain scroll that lists the family lines of all the lords on the island and says that he will reward Sinjid for finding it.
If Sinjid manages to find the Lineage Scroll for Sutaku, he will reward him with:
Sutaku knew about the scroll's existence and seemed to be confident that the scroll was somewhere on the island, but he didn't seem comfortable sharing his intentions about the scroll with Sinjid. After Sinjid gave it to him, he read some information off it and was disappointed by the results, possibly because it didn't turn out to be what he was expecting.
Aoi the Gourmet
Aoi the Gourmet is a character located between the inn and the weapon and armor shop. When Sinjid meets her for the first time, she asks him if he has heard about the Ghost Mushroom that grows in the Burial Grounds. After explaining herself, she requests Sinjid to bring it to her if he finds one, and says that she will make it worth his time.
If Sinjid manages to find a Ghost Mushroom for Aoi, she will reward him with:
According to Aoi, the Ghost Mushroom is pale blue in colour and is rare. She believes that it contains the soul of another person and also believes that it is delicious, but since she never had one, she keeps wondering as to what it will actually taste like.
This caused her to be naturally excited when Sinjid finally brought one to her. She ignored all warnings from Sinjid about how it smelt stale by saying that all high class food smells that way, but ended up feeling bizzare after having it.
Eiji the Alchemist
Eiji the Alchemist is a character located at the far right side of the village. Upon talking to him for the first time, he asks Sinjid if he likes water and explains that since all life is made of water, his theory is that drinking better water will make them better people. He also theorizes that the water in the White Forest must be special, since plants grow in such a cold place, and requests Sinjid to bring a sample if he passes by. After Sinjid agrees to it, Eiji thanks him and provides him with:
This is to help with the sidequest, which can be completed for an unlimited number of times. If Sinjid brings him Bottled Izumi Water using this or any other Empty Bottle, Eiji will tell him to come back later, after which he changes it into:
Captain Masaru, the leader of the Imperial Guards is the person in Ryomura Village who provides Sinjid with his primary quests up to a certain time. He can be found in the camp, situated in an area left of the weapon and armor shop.
After Sinjid returns from the Burial Grounds, he finds that the Shogun had Captain Masaru kidnapped by some group of people. It is at this point that Masaru disappears from the village.
Kasumi can be found in the camp, to the right of Captain Masaru, which is where Sinjid first gets to know her. She is quick to warn Sinjid about the fact that she is the deadliest Shinobi of the Empire and that she'll be there to hunt him down if he decides to run. At other times, she comments on the current state of Masaru's plan from time to time if Sinjid talks to her.
Kidnapped along with the Imperial Guards, Kasumi disappears from Ryomura Village after Sinjid returns from the Burial Grounds.
Eri is a scout of the empire who gives insight on an area or group of enemies to Sinjid before he goes to face them off. She appears in many places for the nature of her work, but she is seen only briefly in Ryomura Village. She can be found in the camp after Sinjid returns from the Burial Grounds, after which she travels with Sinjid to the Emerald Temple lead by Midori.
Midori appears briefly in the camp in Ryomura Village after the Burial Grounds are completed. She appears in front of Sinjid and Eri to tell them how she saw what happened. After explaining the situation, she tells Sinjid and Eri to follow her to the Emerald Temple to which Eri shows doubt at first, but agrees to go along with Sinjid after he convinces her that Midori can be trusted.
Setsuko the Cook
Setsuko is a cook found inside the inn on the left side. On first being talked to, Setsuko exclaims that Sinjid looks hungry and so she gives him this gift:
After receiving the free rice ball, Sinjid exclaims that it is the nicest thing that anyone has done for him all day. Setsuko says that he'll have to pay if he wants more though, since business is business. She then offers a shop, where the following items can be purchased:
|Rice Ball (金3)||Spring Water (金2)||Grilled Fish (金2)||Sake (金3)|
|Wild Mushroom (金2)||Packed Bento (金3)||Tea (金2)||Empty Bottle (金2)|
Baru the Drunk
Baru the Drunk is a character found inside the inn on the right side. He tells Sinjid that he is tired of Sake. Sinjid asks him why he drinks it then, to which he says that he does so because he has nothing else to drink. Baru then continues to say that he has heard of something red from Europe called wine that tastes sweet, but expresses annoyance over the fact that he can't find any around there and figuratively hints that he would give anything for it.
If Sinjid manages to bring him European Wine, Baru will reward him with:

Jin the Blade

When Sinjid enters the weapon and armor shop for the first time, he and Xin have a sort of disagreement, where the both of try to attract Sinjid to what each of them are selling.
