This is a great game that builds on the previous Straw Hat Samurai mechanic.
Feel free to join us at the Aka Ryu (Red Dragon) clan, where we help each other enjoy the fight and answer any questions you may have.
@GamblerJustice: did you know you can abandon the bounty to keep the item? Just return to town to restart the bounty quest. That way, you keep the item and get the coins. The ever-elusive rings can also be obtained from bounty quests, occasionally.
