This is low-quality front of the bathroom mirror random.

Sizemore's behavior changes very rapidly between his mourning chat with the Grand Abbie and his joyous declaration of his findings. Is it merely the thrill of discovery, seeing his past actions in a better light?

Or is it the removal of the Duty, an effect over the Magic Kingdom that frees casters from their bonds, and Duties such as "I must kill my opposite number in my lord's enemy army"? Is Sizemore, even now, hating Parson, but unable, disallowed to act on it?

    I did find it odd that he seemed so enthusiastic and even boyishly eager and excited after suffering such a crisis of conscience. I figured his chat with Janis, a good night's sleep, and remembering the euphoria of the power he wielded as part of the caster troika were enough to make him momentarily forget or put to the side his qualms and guilt.

    *nods* I was thinking a Willow Magic High... But Duty is a possibility too.

    Though, he did seem to be rather unhappy when he killed Webinar.

    I'm pretty sure that's just Sizemore getting over it. Being a pacifist doesn't mean he has to be incredibly emotionally fragile, though it can seem that way sometimes because some people use a facade of pacifism to cover up spinelessness. Sizemore isn't one of these people, though. Or if he is, he's very good at hiding it.

    I think that it was mostly the effect of the entire battle. In fact, do we know if he'd ever engaged in combat before that time, or was this his first time?

    That's a good thought, actually, and it wouldn't surprise me if the answer was no.

    he was level 8 when she last saw him, he level to level 10 by this combat.
    I would surmise he has experienced combat before... just nothing of this sort.

    Sizemore has the following things going on in less than a day, in this order:
    0. He really liked parson, he thought he was different than the other warlords!
    1. The elation of altering the terrain type, LIKE A TITAN!
    2. just wholesale slaughtered thousands both on his side and the other side. killing everyone and everything. At parson's command.
    3. he had a very emotional conversation with a grand abbie about it, a confessional of sorts. And he was reassured by her.
    4. Had a good night sleep.
    5. He found a girlfriend

    Just because he was shaken from #2 doesn't mean he is going to be depressed for the rest of his life.

    Taltamir, i wasn't aware that Sizemore's level had been explicitly stated anywhere. Where does it say that Sizemore was level 8 before the battle?

    But Sizemore's level was never stated. Janis said he gained 2 levels, but his level was never stated before or after we learned that fact. All we know is that Sizemore is two levels higher after TBFGK than he was before it.

    Unless you can show me where his level was stated...

    Actually, Sizemore was more ambivalent in his thinking about Parson even before the uncroaking of the volcano: "Then I think... I think I have to hate you."
