I finished EOTD over the weekend (excellent imo), and after some consideration, I wondered about some of Flagg's previous interactions with Delain. The story tells of Flagg's influence some 400 years previous which left the kingdom in a vast 'depression'. Following Flagg's departure, the leader of Delain put people to work making napkins, lots and lots of napkins. These napkins are what Peter uses to make his rope. This is an ironic occurrence that's pointed out by the narrator.
Did anyone else think about this particular irony when Peter's fall was cushioned by these same napkins? I found this rather humorous, especially as Flagg realized Peter hadn't been killed by the fall.
I'm also curious as to the adventures of Thomas and Dennis, and the priest that's mentioned earlier in the story.
