Once-King Dalton
« on: April 14, 2009, 05:35:24 pm »
Okay, I just fought him, and before that I read that some people speculated he was behind the Fall of Guardia in 1005.

After beating him, he tells Chrono that he'll raise the greatest army the world has ever seen in Porre, and wipe "your pitiful little kingdom off the map!" I guess...that confirms it then? That Dalton is at least involved with the Fall of Guardia?

This was found out shortly after the release of CT:DS in Japan, and yes, it ultimately confirms that Dalton is in fact, the mastermind behind the Rise of Porre and the Fall of Guardia.

And from there some have assumed that he was the long-haired man in the ending FMV, originally seen in the Playstation port of CT.

I think it makes more sense that it's just a random Porrean and that's why it's just a random, unrecognizable silhouette...

Dalton couldn't have been that man. Dalton fights with magic or uses his golems instead.

Fighting with a sword... it's just not him, I think. Besides, why would he be in the actual fighting when he can attack from a distance, which is safer?

Yeah, plus, he says he'll raise it, not lead it...

Yep, and besides that, Square couldn't have known back then that they would make Dalton the guy who leads it. So it's just a coincedence.

Why do you think that they couldn't have known who was responsible?

To me it sounded like something they came up with way later. I think they chose a long haired dude to keep it mysterious. If they had planned it from the beginning, I would think they would execute it a little better, not Dalton saying 1 line that he's going to attack Guardia.

Ah, yes, I forgot how easily you seem to just dismiss things like that...

I guess the two of us are destined to disagree on everything.

However...

How does Dalton even know Guardia EXISTED? He spent most of the story prior to the Dimensional Vortex in 12,000 BC, so he couldn't have any knowledge of any location in the future.

That Dimensional Vortex is connected to 1000 AD. He clearly could have gained knowledge of locations in the present.

The Prophet could have told him as well...plus, he just says, "your kingdom", not specifically Guardia, he could have learned afterwords that they were from Guardia (especially easy after Crono wed Marle)...
