      Also, it should be noted that once you locate Senji Muramasa, Tome's grandfather, he also has patronage perks. The same points you use with Tome can be used with him, so IMO it's best to save them up for when you find him; since he has a perk to reduce the cost of soul forging. Just a little FYI.

        Senji Muramasa, Senji Tome's grandpa, is found in sub mission "The Trail of the Master" in Region 4 Tokai. If you go in be prepared to fight a Flying Bolt and Raven Tengu at the same time as the boss for this misson.

          I am going insane trying to find anyone else who has had this happen. When I talked to the blacksmith she asked me if I wanted to meet the "Legendary Blacksmith Muramasa" and I said yes. She then told me that she doesn't know where he is and asked me to find him. I've looked but just can't find him but nobody else on any site I've checked has even mentioned this so I am going crazy. Has anyone else had this happen?

            I beat the first boss and saw a message that Blacksmith and something else were available (co-op maybe?), but I see no way on the map screen or at a shrine to actually smith anything? Do I need to start the second main mission?
