Do any of you ever wonder why there was a statue of Roland in Lud? With a lack of fingers and all. To my knowledge it never gets referenced again. Anyone have any ideas? It could point to his repeated journeys to the tower. Maybe he saved Lud in a bygone age? Room for another prequel perhaps? I don't really have a clue.
Edit: The fingers weren't mentioned. I was mistaken. I apologise. The quote in question:
"No, she thought, at last remembering to breathe again. It's not him ... but in another way, it is. That man was a gunslinger, and the resemblance between him, who's probably been dead a thousand years or more, and Roland, is all the truth of ka-tet you'll ever need to know."
