    He has his moments certainly. As I said above, I know who it was, (if you count the comics),
    Spoiler:
    and Sheemie had his part to play in those events. (I'm not saying he was the betrayer though.)


    i never thought of him as perfect either. i am curious how old the Roland & Alain & Cuthert actually were when they were killed on Jerico Hill. it really didn't say.
    I think they were in their early twenties.

    who was it though ? i mean at some point i'll prolly buy the comics anyways. the DT books are kinda like the Buffy Comics. season 8 or Season 9 when it comes to buffy i mean., a LOT of people don't consider them as part of the show. & others do. i think that pretty much goes the same way for the comics for the DT series. this is of course me just guessing. but you see my point i'm trying to make i'm sure. well i hope.

    & i guess it's a good thing that iF Jerico Hill happen when they were in their 20's. at least it happend when they were out of their teens.

    In "Battle of Jericho Hill"
    Spoiler:
    Farson captures the wife and son of a gunslinger named Randolph. He then forces Randolph to betray the other gunslingers, in order to save his sons life.

    thankee sai. this was in the comic's right? it's actually pretty damn good that it wasn't any of Roland's doing or his Ka-Tet. or his family either. or theirs. well it's a relief i meant to say. was this dude mentioned in the series? outside of the comic's i can't remember to be honest.

    Yes it was in the comics. I don't remember hearing anything about him in the novels, don't even know his last name.

    i think it would be interesting if Sai King wrote another series of DT books. in comic book form anyways. since the novels wouldn't make sense to write them again. & by the time the series ends. maybe Roland well you know how the series ends. i think that would be interesting if they did that in comic book form.

    let me further add what i mean. he will have the horn of eld. i wasn't sure if that needed a spoiler tag or not to be honest. well at the start of issue #1.


    so it will be a continuation of the original series. what do you guys & gals think?

    If I am not mistaken, it says ten years after Mejis somewhere in the novels. That would make them around 25.

    Roland was 14 in W&G, and at the end of his long night of story, he tells his little katet that the work they did in Majis only delayed the eventual fall of Gilead by 20 months. That would put Roland at 16 or 17 at the fall.

    According to Robin Furth's Concordance, Cuthbert and Roland were 24 years old during the Battle of Jerico
