A wooden harp is a tonal musical instrument, and one of the two harps. A samurai knows the wooden harp as a koto.


It will either play "a lilting melody" (which pacifies nymphs) or else it "twangs." If a harp produces "very attractive music" it is a magic harp instead. If you choose not to improvise, and the harp produces a "strange sound", then it is a wooden harp.


Improvising with a wooden harp will exercise your dexterity, and possibly make nearby nymphs peaceful;[1] as a tonal instrument, it can be used to play the passtune to enter the castle.

Nymphs will be made peaceful if you are not confused, and your experience level plus a random number between 0 and your dexterity is at least 26.


Wooden harps are mainly useful for playing the passtune, or as polyfodder.
