- July 19 - July 25: "You are Yukimura Sanada!"
Kanetsugu says to you, "I ask of you, Yukimura. Why fight a war you know you cannot win?"
You reply, "To always be fair and bold, and to never flee from my shortcomings! At least, that's what my sister-in-law told me to say."
- July 25 - August 1: "You are Motochika Chōsokabe!"
Mitsuhide approaches you and asks, "You came here because you are my good friend. Would you happen to know what this means?"
You answer, "Do you not know of the festival being held in Nagano tonight? I came here to party!"
- August 2 - August 8: "You are Sakon Shima!"
Mitsunari notices you and inquires, "What do you want?"
You explain, "It's time to start the bean throwing festival, but I'm short one demon. Can you act the part, my lord? You already have the horns."
- August 9 - August 22: "You are Hanbei Takenaka!"
Takatora senses your presence and rudely exclaims, "Who's there?!"
You stutter, "Uh, it's just me, but don't try to start something now. I really need the money, so transfer the deposit into my account!"
- August 23 - August 29: "You are Masamune Date!"
Kanetsugu questions, "Then, tell me. What type of world would you create?"
You answer in a sinister voice, "(chuckles) ... A land ruled by chaos... Ah, wait, no! That wasn't me at all! Strike that from the record, imbecile!"
