This is a tribute to The Dark Tower. Roland may not have been all that great at his job, but he still looked reasonably good. At the very least, he did a good job of surviving all these years and stopping any threats that impeded his path to vengeance. I don’t think Larry Appleton could have lasted quite as long and I get the feeling that he would have thrown in the towel years ago. He just doesn’t have the strength of will that Roland has and no formal combat experience either. Roland Deschain wins.
