He wasn't greedy at the end of Trigger. Part of the Sun Stone Sidequest was changing the mayor from a greedy money hog to a generous alms giver so you could get the Moon Stone back from him.

Well, that quest is optional.

That doesn't mean it's not canon. Everything after you visit the End of Time for the first time is optional because you can just take the bucket and kill Lavos and voila end of the game.

Anyway even if he's a nice person doesn't mean he can't be convinced to start a war.

Well, we are not sure Porre's mayor has something to do with the Fall of Gardia event any way.
Maybe he's already dead.

Do you really think free Jerky given to someone who lived in the same house 400 years before would have that much effect?

LOL

Well apparently it did 'cause before you give the Jerky he'll be full of shit and lie to you about not having the sunstone and if you do give the Jerky he'll give the stone without a moment's hesitation

Kill him and grab the sunstone, maybe that's the best solution. lol

The people in 600 AD weren't greedy, so he didn't learn that from them before.

It's his innate nature.  Sure he gave the sunstone but that's cuz he doesn't know how to use it.

He talks about some traveler taking it to his house.  It was DALTON!


WOOT

That is getting annoying.

Regardless, it is plausible, so I invoke the Statistic Law Of Facts.

Dalton: Hey Mr. Nice Porre Man, can I borrow your army for a sec?
Mayor: Sure, friend! I don't know why we have that old thing lying around, anyway.
Dalton: ALL ACCORDING TO KEIKAKU

I agree this is both new and interesting

What if Dalton just usurped the mayor in a political power struggle, or gained his trust as a Prime Minster and now rules that way?

Wouldn't really be hard for Dalton, who can use magic and summon golems to gain control of Porre, population 12, now would it?

I know you're kinda joking, but always assume that there are more people in a civilization than an RPG depicts. Dalton has a lot of power at his command, but I don't think he's in a position to force power (by himself, at that) in Porre's time and place, given that a world power is right north, and that Porre probably had a sizable population or even army themselves. He probably got close to someone in power and went from there.
