The incredible epic tale, written by Stephen King, of Roland Deschain's search for a tower that holds up all of existence. In his search he encounters all sorts of beings and worlds that are all somewhat parallel. This series can be taken as one of King's greatest works. It contains seven long novels that create the larger tale. The first book was written back in the 70s, and the last book in the series was released in 2004.

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.
