Set in the late 16th century during the unification of Japan, this game follows the exploits of a ronin (i.e. masterless samurai) who's out to get a job with one of the local warlords.

Has touches of both Uncharted Waters and the Nobunaga's Ambition series, along with some surprisingly infectious music for a Koei RPG. If you can handle the language and haven't tried one of Koei's sims before, then this might be a good place to start.
