|1.||The Dark Tower|
The center of reality. The point at which all universes, all times, all of existence, meets.
Whether or not the Dark Tower appeared after the Prim receded or if it has always existed is unknown.
Humanity in its great ignorance attempted to toy with the Tower in some way, form, or fashion, and managed to unbalance it, requiring support beams to hold it up.
The beams are beams of force that run through all realities. There are Six beams that are guarded by twelves guardians, with a single lost guardian at the top.
If the Tower falls, then reality recedes like a scroll, ending instantaneously all of existence.
May only be entered by one carring a sigil of Arthur Eld.

Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came.
Writer from Maine, who has written a large number of novels, novellas and short stories, many made into movies, miniseries or TV specials. He has been often regarded as a horror writer, but he cannot be so easily categorized. His works run from fantasy, science fiction, Western, horror, thriller, mystery, supernatural and suspense. Most of the movies made from his works have had the horror aspect greatly magnified. A few of his works (namely The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Stand and The Shining miniseries) have translated very well into video. He is also the author of the epic Dark Tower series, the tale of Roland Deschain of Gilead and his quest to gain the Dark Tower with the help of his ka-tet of Eddie Dean, Susannah Dean, Jake Chambers and Oy of Midworld. There are a number of works related to this epic, such as Black House, Insomnia, Hearts In Atlantis, Everything's Eventual, The Little Sisters of Eluria, 'Salem's Lot, From A Buick 8, The Stand and Eyes Of The Dragon.

Stephen King "retired" after finishing the last of these, but has since written a few more novels, notably "Cell", which is similar to the Stand, but with a twist. It is a lot less supernatural than The Stand, and there is no final struggle of good vs. evil.
Stephen King also has a penchant for killing his...
In Stephen King's epic, The Dark Tower Series, Mayhap is a word that means "perhaps"
Roland: Mayhap we can reach the Dark Tower before it falls.
To "be 19", or to have "gone 19" essentially means that something has gone wrong, is just plain weird, or is inexplicable. Derived from Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' series. Its true meaning, if anything more than a motif, has yet to be revealed.
"Welcome to the 19th level of The Dark Tower."
"The whole fucking world has gone 19."

I wonder what happened to Bango Skank....
Bango Skank is a character created by horror novelist Peter Straub, and made reference to in Stephen King's epic Dark Tower novels.
Bango Skank first appeared in Straub's "The Buffalo Hunter", the third story in his short fiction collection Houses Without Doors.
Although Skank never makes a physical appearance in The Dark Tower novels, he has left graffiti in surprising, dangerous, and unlikely spots, from alternate versions of New York City to the tunnels beneath the Dixie Pig restaurant.
"Bango Skank was here" was written on the bridge.
A word taken from Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series meaning a pawn of fate, i.e. one who has hope but no real choices.
The Maid of Constant Sorrow is nothing but a ka-mai.
