    Totally outside the box-- if Roland is a written character,
    then, SK himself could take down Roland with simple pen and paper in hand. Just write the scene where the SK character, in the DT, takes out Roland.

    Unexpected

    Probably the most cunning answer we'll get.

    César Hernández-Meraz Wants to be Nick, ends up as Larry

    My vote is for her, too.

    As long as there aren't any old, heavy typewriters nearby.

    Or she could amputate parts of Roland and invalidate the fight. :barbershop_quartet_member:

    No fair. I'm out. You are not speaking of Roland, then. Just using his name.

    Well if I'd of said who from Stephen King's works can beat Roland in a gunfight......I don't think there would of been much of a conversation lol

    *Looks at Tull*

    Also its a hypothetical scenario (him being weaponless against another weaponless man/woman) in a hypothetical location.

    Also why wouldn't I just wanna use Roland's name for something? :D

    Its a good name and fun to say.

    Roland, Roland, Roland, Roland, Roland(say it five times fast)....Roland drinks Rolling Rock while riding a rolling carriage that's being pulled by a horse that rocks back and forth! :rofl: Its so good it shows up all over history and myths, Stephen King used it for another character in Eyes of the Dragon and now that you've said that I'm afraid I may have to make a character named Roland in response!

    danie I am whatever you say I am.

    She'll probably kick it for free actually. I've seen it done. :)
     
  11. Oh well, in that case, Nettie Cobb would beat Roland before he even knew he was in a bar fight. She wouldn't think twice about grabbing a beer bottle or a pool cue to take Roland down. He might survive long enough to regret saying he killed her dog. Stupid comments usually start bar fights, right? :)

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    I have to agree with muskrat. Only Steven Deschain would stand a chance, even if he was a bit older than Roland (outside of dumb luck, for which Roland himself has a healthy respect. With that in play, just about anyone COULD take him down). He's got the same skills, the same training, but enjoys the benefit of more experience than Roland.

    Maybe Alan Pangborn, he definitely has some gunslinger in him and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that he is Roland, in the world of castle rock
