History of the Multiverse

Initially, a magical presence named Prim but also known as the “Darkness Behind Everything,” gave birth to Gan a metaphysical form erected as a tower known as The Dark Tower. It is surrounded by six beams protected by twelve guards.

One of his guards is Maturin, the turtle. It is said that one day this turtle threw up an entire universe called Keystone Earth and is a reflection of our real world. It includes an alternative version Stephen King himself and this is where we find the Pink.

Some people the power to travel through by borrowing entitled passage Todash or rare artifacts like Wizard’s Rainbow, the Talisman or the Lil’Pink.

Gan uses Stephen King to tell the story of Gunslinger, the Pistolero in French appointed Roland Deschain to carry up The Dark Tower. If the author dies before the gunslinger has not accomplished its mission and King Crimson launch Discordia on the different kingdoms thus ending the universe because no story would be to tell.

The High Speech, the Language of the Multiverse

Ka is a word of the language The Dark Tower and allows direct all living and non-living things. Will of Gan, this mysterious force is equivalent to the intended. It is a guide or a destination, but not an end. Being neither good nor bad, Ka has no moral closest karma.

The official website Dark Tower described as follows: “Ka … means life force, consciousness, duty does fate. In the Vulgate, or low speech, it also means a place where an individual needs to go.
