    Well, they're not so secret now, are they?

    picked up a book on the shelf named Gunslinger and my life was never the same again.
    Man, such a life-changing series for sure.

    @ Brian861 was a great series but Drawing of the Three is a big stand out for me... don't even get me started

    @ Girlystevedave Well, they're not so secret now, are they? .... There is a Public secret handshake and then a secret secret handshake but I can't talk about that one until I have clocked up 5000 posts here

    @ anyone who is listening .......... Is Brian a popular name here...... asking for a friend.

    Read every King book except the Dark Tower series. Read one 30 years ago, stared a second but I did not like it. Trying again. Reading the Gunslinger. I believe I read one of the others and not the Gunslinger so when I started the second it made no sense and tossed it aside. Wanted to avoid thinking King was losing his stuff.

    Haha. And then I'm guessing there's a secret secret secret handshake that doesn't even "exist", huh?

    I'm so jealous that you're reading for the first time around. You've found a great place to discuss everything as you go, but beware of spoilers.
    Forgot to quote you in my reply! Thanks for the welcome and the tip about spoilers. Have you read all of his books already?
    Yes to all of the Dark Tower books, but no to all of King's other books. I've read almost everything, but still have a few on my to-read list.
    What about you? Is The Dark Tower your first King read?
    Admittedly, I've only just started reading for pleasure about six or seven months ago. I saw the DT movie trailer and had been wanting to get into reading for a while at that time so I thought why not start with that. I read Gunslinger and was hooked. Honestly, the ending blew my mind. I powered through until I finished Wizard and Glass and realized I'm missing out on all the connections from his other novels and stories. I decided then I'd read his work in chronological order and ordered a copy of Carrie. I'm now about a quarter of the way through The Stand and still kicking myself for not picking up this hobby much earlier in my life. Yet, the bright side, as you said, is I have SO much left of this amazing author's work to read!
    Man, how exciting that you have his entire catalog to explore. You are in for so many great adventures.
    So, as far as Dark Tower goes, have you paused at Wizard and Glass for now so you can read his other works?
    Sorry for taking so long to reply. Itís been so long since Iíve used a forum that Iíve forgotten how to keep up. Add that to the ever growing list of how Facebook has ruined my life!

    Iím very excited about the adventures ahead. The beautiful thing is that with the internet being the wealth of info it is nowadays, I can find an answer to almost any question about any book I may have. Also, thereís always a picture I can find thatíll help me visualize something if needed. Itís great!

    Yep, I finished Wizard & Glass a few months ago and then read Carrie. Iíve been reading a couple books by other authors in between each SK book and Iím just about to finish the mind blowingly amazing piece of literary fiction that is The Stand. So, still got a ways to go before I resume DT, but Iím not complaining. Just wish I was a little bit quicker of a reader, but thereís a bright side to that being Iíll never get to a point in my life where I donít have something great to read.

    Hello everyone,
    I haven't been to the forum since the .net days but was looking into the community after a lively discussion about The Tower at work.
    I discovered The Dark Tower in middle school by pure accident (Ka?) and falling into the world saved me from a lot of sad and lonely teenage nights
    Favorite Character: Eddie. He had a gun fight naked. Enough said.
    Favorite Book: Wolves of Calls
    Age 34.
    Excited to be here.

    Long days and pleasant nights!

    I've recently re-read the Dark Tower series; I read the first three books in the 90s and then the rest as they were released. I've decided to create a Dark Tower adventure campaign for our RPG group and will be scouring the board for obscure bits of lore I can incorporate!

    RPG = Role Playing Game. The tabletop kind. Old school, like D&D, except that tabletop RPGs have experienced a resurgence in the last few years. There are licensed tabletop RPGs for Sci Fi everything from Star Wars to Firefly to Doctor Who, and also lots of newly-released custom RPG settings - not licensed, just based on the universes the creators dreamt up. For example, Deadlands is a post-apocalyptic Western horror setting similar in ways to the Dark Tower. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadlands

    Adventure/campaign typically refers to the books that accompany the RPG rules that allow DM's to "run" the group of generated characters through a story. Of course, no one's done an RPG system for Dark Tower, so I'd need to use an existing set of rules that's adaptable to different settings, then write my own story for the PCs to adventure in

    Deadlands would be obvious, but I'm not a fan of all the game mechanics. One rule set I'm thinking of adapting is called "The Strange" http://thestrangerpg.com/ Another is Cypher: http://cypher-system.com/what-is-the-cypher-system/

    Clear as mud yet?
