    Re: Forum Mafia - The Dark Tower Game Thread

    The starting point needed to be mostly from the original works to set up the game. From here out the stories all are based upon small quotes from the books with mostly my own writing for anticipated outcomes. I may occasionally have to post a story later than intended if something unexpected happens. Knowing you folks... something unexpected will happen.

    Re: Forum Mafia - The Dark Tower Game Thread

    I think one of the keywords is "Task". He said that a task is hidden in there. I'm thinking that it might have to do with going into the actual books and finding something. What it could be? I have no clue.
    Then I just won't b​other!

    For hurting my brain.

    Can you clarify what task even means? Is it a group task for everyone, or is it like a PM type thing? I'm confused.

    I took this as "for us all to complete", so as a group. If we figure it out collectively, we get the 'prize', so to speak.

    I hope this is a task one can complete without having read the books. I haven't read them. Gave up after about 50 pages or so of book 1. Stephen King is just not for me. Don't think I have ever completed a book he wrote. I've read the wiki recap though, but that sounded rather weird. Guess I have to read it again.

    I'd like to know if the task can be solved by just the story here or if you need to know the lore.

    Oh, I didn't realize anything was bolded because this stupid app doesn't show bolding and it's a piece of crap.

    The Gunslinger is kind of hard to read, imo. It's the weakest of the books as far as his writing goes (it was one of his earliest works). The series really finds itself in the 2nd book, imo. It's worth persevering at least through the 2nd book if you have them available.

    Reading or searching the books is not necessary for any advantage or part of the game, although folks more familiar with the story may derive more enjoyment out of the mechanics, characters and stories.

    The bolded statements are bolded for story purposes and have nothing to do with the task. The task is a hidden riddle in a portion of the text I wrote myself. I really ought not to give even this much of a hint but I honestly thought someone would figure it out and have it solved already.

    Don't tell me what I do or do not dare to do!

    Re: Forum Mafia - The Dark Tower Game Thread

    Thanks Drixx. I forwarded the text to my work email, so I can reread it and think about it. Wouldn't have done that if there was no chance of discovering it for me. I expect one of the smarter minds here to have solved it before I get up though.
