    Right, It was ka.
    I said everything but this.
    I know dear. Sorry.

    It is very well stated though, and I do agree with the point.

    Default Names Roland "forgot" to... *end of series spoilers

    In the official end thread I wrote this:
    I felt he forgot to call the names of some really important characters when he reached the tower. Why did he call Dinky Earnshaw, for instance, and not Patrick who saved him at the end? He didn't call only dead people names... Why didn't he call the name of the brave Margaret Eisenhart or Rosalita? What about Moses, Deepnau, and mostly Cullum?
    And I wonder what do you feel about it. Got the feeling that SK was in a rush when writing this otherwise incredibly strong part of the story. Whose name do you feel Roland should call in front of the Tower, but didn't?
    I'm sorry if there's a similar thread, or discussion, I'm still a little lost in the forums.

    He didn't call Randall Flagg's name.

    .
    I always thought he called the names only of those he actually saw dead, or who died because of him, through him, and within what he could reasonably call "his lifetime".
    I have other problems with the list of the names, but I think there is a thread somewhere (or am I thinking about .net again? I know that I had started the "Whose Names" thread at .net myself, but I think there must be a similar one here; I'll look tomorrow morning)

    Hey lisaki, that part always made me wonder, too. Here is a long thread about the same topic: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...ead.php?t=1683
    You may find it interesting. But don't worry in some days we will merge them.

    Anyway I am still not sure why Roland called the names he did but I am sure there are no mistakes. It's such an important part... why would King have been in a rush? You know he is the wordslinger so he sings what happens to Roland.. if he wrote it this way that how it must have happened. It may sound a bit silly but what I mean is that there are good reasons for the names. I am absolutely sure about it.

    May we know which?



    (I am sorry but I edited the title a little bit, it may not have been a spoiler but just to be in the safe side I made it less detailed)

    Roland would have understood.
