This aspect of the Chrono series never really confused me for one reason - Norris has a gun.

If Porre overthrew Gaurdia so quickly and so decisively, we can assume that they had an overwhelming advantage, and the most obvious advantage is that they had guns. Gaurdia would have been no match for this new technology.

Okay, you're all saying, 'Well, Lucca had a gun, and she lived in Gaurdia.' Yes, but these guns were developed by Lucca for personal use and were never mass produced.

It's my theory that some time in the past, Porre spies (because Porre had obviously been planning to overthrow Gaurdia for a long time) infiltrated Gaurdia and stole plans from either Lucca or Taban and began to mass produce guns. With the advantage they gained from having an army trained with Lucca's design of guns, there's no way the war could've lasted more than 4 or 5 years, which coincides with Porre overthrowing Gaurdia in 1005 AD.

So yeah, what I guess I'm trying to say is... I'm a total nerd who has played these two games WAY TOO MUCH.

great article. you guys are total nerds for spending so much time on discussing it, but aren't we all! :D

the dead sea certainly can be the most confusing aspect of the chrono series, but if you take the time to learn and understand how it ties in with the rest of the story, it's well worth it.

honestly, i don't think the creators of the game intended for anyone to delve so far in to the story, but you guys do a good job in trying to explain it for the rest of the fans. maybe you should ask square for a paycheque.
