To get the musket you must go to the Scholars Garden after accepting the Outlander quest. Then you must defeat the outlander in a debate and combat to receive his weapon. This could very well be one of the games best weapons

In Master Li's house, there a statue of a lion. Next to it is a box with three figurines in it. Place these figurines on the statue according to the color on the statue to get one silver and one experience for each time you do this. This is slow, but can help you get a few silver pieces.

Following the bandit attack, if you go into the area south of the town square before you return to talk to Master Li, you can meet some of Gao's drunk men. The fight's for real, but if you win and go back you can ask Gao why he didn't have his men help, offering an additional dialog choice that wasn't there before.
Also, if you beat up Gao's men in the period of time before Gao challenges you, and when you emerge from the spirit cave, your Intimidation option changes and becomes a guaranteed success.
