The alchemist Lepidus is known for being able to make gold. The sheriff has his own intentions with such a magic and gives Lepidus an ultimatum that he will have 6 days to produce gold or be sent to his death. When word gets out of his abilities, greed compels Sir Peter and Sir Paul to also seek their golden fortunes. However the outlaws have another plan in mind.
The second episode featuring Lepidus as the gold making alchemist and still greed drives those around to seek out their magic gotten fortunes. No Robin Hood in this episode however the outlaws take up the sword and do their bit to help King Richard.
