A quick recap of Treasure Chest of Courage episode 1
Ranking of Kings: The Treasure Chest of Courage episode 1 was split between two story parts titled ‘Kage’s Errand’ and ‘The Prince and Money’.
Kage’s Errand opened with Bojji and Kage hearing a commotion coming from Despa’s room, only to find out that he has grown an age spot on his face and subsequently would be unable to train Bojji until it is healed.
Despa hides under his duvet out of embarrassment, but then realizes that Shuddercap Mushrooms could help the spot – so he sends Kage into town to purchase one with a gold coin. Unfortunately, Kage’s little side-adventure turns out to be more complicated than he first realized, and he ends up in the Okkana Forest after being warned that a terrifying monster lives nearby.
Kage is able to save an old lady from the supposed monster and carries her home, where he ends up completing various menial chores for the elderly woman, who gives him a pie as a reward.
Upon returning to the castle, Despa reveals that the monster was actually the old woman, who harvests Shuddercap Mushrooms and gets adventurers to complete her chores – thankfully, the pie that he got as a reward contains the Shuddercap and they all settle down to enjoy their meal.
The Prince and Money saw Despa trying to exploit Bojji by making him earn money for him, disguising the rouse as a way to learn about modern society and trade. Bojji becomes frustrated at the notion of working as each job he tries, he fails at; including at the florist and a nearby restaurant.
Instead, they set up a game where whoever can hit Bojji with a beanbag will win 100 gold coins, and eventually a large enough crowd gathers that it becomes profitable for our young hero. Unfortunately, a young girl gets carried away with the game and spends all of her family’s savings, only for Kage to reveal to Despa that they had rigged the game in their favor.
Conflicted, Despa agrees to tutor the girl and periodically give her family money, on a deal that would see the girl work for Despa once she finishes studying abroad.
