Once upon a time, there was a kingdom named Dokapon where the people enjoyed nothing more than their money. The sight of its golden glimmer, the comforting clink of a full wallet, the metallic taste of a freshly minted coin… Everyone Loved their cash, and nobody Loved it more than the King.
One day, monsters appeared out of nowhere and attacked the towns of Dokapon Kingdom. These monsters stole people’s money for their own mysterious reasons, and the people became so poor that they were unable to pay their taxes to the King.
The King, moved to tears by the plight of his people and his income, called upon heroes from far and wide to free his people from the monsters. The reward for this dangerous task is the beautiful Princess Penny’s hand in marriage and the throne of Dokapon Kingdom!
A journey full of danger, intrigue, betrayal, and cold, hard cash is about to begin!
