    I thought it sounded like the beginning of a Wheel of Time book.

    Re: Forum Mafia - The Dark Tower Game Thread

    That was my first thought too. The first paragraph isn't directly from the books, but it contains many facts of the books. There are the 12 Guardians of the Beams, 2 on each beam. But the inclusion of "Ka is a wheel" and "12" just keeps me thinking 'clock' or 'time'.
    Then I just won't b​other!

    I don't know whether or not the riddle will require knowledge fromt he books or not, but I doubt it, considering Drixx mentioned that knowledge of the books is not required.

    I have a headache already trying to decipher that. Maybe something simpler next time?

    I don't know much about the books other than what I read on Wikipedia, but the thing that stood out to me was "shall we look at whback at what came before?" my understanding is that Roland has done this quest before. I'll have a harder read when I get home from work phone posting / reading is hard

    This just seems to refer to a clock. The beams seem represent the beams you may expect to find in roman numerals, i.e., on older clocks. The six beams must be refering to XII, or 12. If that was all linked together with beams it would have 6 beams, and represent the number twelve. I guess if you exclude the top and bottom beams on the second time, "2", it would just be ll, or two beams. It's moved on, from 12 to 2, either AM or PM.

    That was really confusing to type out, so I hope you understand what I mean.
