Rumors about the third and final book of the Inheritance Trilogy debunked

New forum here :

http://dailyprophetsforum.activebb.net/

Lots of rumors have been floating around the online Inheritance world as of late, and after talking with all of their sources, Shur’tugal is able to debunk a number of them!

First off, they’ve been hearing wide-spread talk that the third book in the trilogy will be titled “Glaedr”. People are basing this rumor on the fact that here’s a fold out poster of the golden dragon, Glaedr, in the back of the Eldest Limited Edition. This information is not true. The fold out poster featured in the back of the book was artwork done by John Jude Palencar for the Japanese copy of Eldest released last year. Their writing is larger than ours, thus requiring them to publish Eldest in two volumes instead of one – each volume with its own artwork. The title of Book 3 is not Glaedr, and no title has been released.

More talk than ever has been going around that Saphira will not talk in the movie. Their sources at Fox tell them that this is not the case – Saphira will talk in the movie, though Fox has not yet made the announcement on who they cast for the voice of Saphira. They expect an announcement soon. In addition (more information on this can be found in their exclusive interview with the producers of the Eragon video game, to release soon), the voice of Saphira in the video game is not the voice of Saphira in the movie.

  1. Jasibl Says:

    I think it is called Empire.

  2. berowl Says:

    I think so too, beginnig by a “E” and having 6 letters.

  3. Danielle Says:

    When will the title of the third book be released?

  4. Stephanie Says:

    I think the title of the third book will have something to do with Murtagh or Thorn because there is a picture of Thorn on the cover of the second book.

  5. Amy Says:

    Is the picture on the right of Murtagh?

  6. Mike Says:

    I have researched this topic religously. I am pretty certain that the title for the third book is most likely going to be Empire the cover will be of a green dragon facing to the right and because the author, in an interview says that the color of a riders magic matches the colors of its dragon’s scales, then logically it lends itself to the fact that Arya wil be the next rider being the only elf rider (she sent the egg away with a green burst of magic i believe) if it is not Arya i see the only other feasible riders to be the young elf that sparred with Eragon in training. Perhaps Roran becoming a rider though this doesn’t seem nearly as plausible. Another thing that you may take into consideration is that in the second book the prophecy says that he will become involved with someone of royalty. We assume that this means Arya, but instead what if it reffered to one of the ladies from Carhavall, we know that Carhavall is the home of King Palancars descendant thus royalty, now what if the royalty that Eragon is supposed to be involved in is Katrina. Hit me up at mosit21@gmail.com if you have any interesting ideas.

  7. berowl Says:

    Mike is great. I knew for the next cover and I too though of Arya as the next rider, but concerning the prophecy, you may be right!! ^^

    amy: the picture on the left is Murthagh, on the right it’s Galbatorix
    danielle: no release date for now

    THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS!!!

  8. wolf Says:

    i thought maybe paolini would decide to give his readers a little twist and have eragon lose to the empire and flee alagaesia. But maybe not, i really can’t think of any other reason for him to leave though. My bets on arya becoming the next rider too. One thing i don’t get is that if Eragon can draw energy from his surroundings, why not use it to defeat the empire. I’m sure that the Blades of grass he cuts wuld grow back, and the life of an ant or two seems insignificant compared to the lives of the countless humans who suffer at the empires hands.

  9. wolf Says:

    i’m must also say that i was unpleasantly surprised to find out that our new rider murtagh in his little time as a rider has already aquired more magic than eragon who we have been following for quite some time.

  10. berowl Says:

    yeah me too about Murthagh, that was quite a shock, but this proove also that the “dark side” have powers we can’t imagine, as a quiker way to teach. I think by contraining and using ancient language…
    I think also Eragon not able to draw energy from livings as it has been forbeeden by his master and Eragon also understands why: because they live, they are part of an entire thing that is life itself.
    What I think is Eragon will be able to find the blade he needs and powers, mentionned in the first prophecy made in the first book.

  11. Time Traveling Bob Says:

    THe moviewill suck balls!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Time Traveling Bob Says:

    The next rider is obviosly Roran as there are many hints and clues. Also leaving Alagasia might refer to leving the country, not the continent. Any place not i the empire is not not part of the country

  13. Mike Says:

    hey the thing about murtagh being so powerful paolini gives us hints, the prophecy of the menoa tree, it says if ever you are need of power go to the vault of souls and speak your name, what if it were a vault of souls that we could see all the old people, eragon could gain all the powers of the old riders, like brom and vrael. just a thought and not a very clear one i know. but there it is and once again email me with any good arfuements ok at mosit21@gmail.com

  14. berowl Says:

    yeah, I too thought of Roran as the next Rider but I don’t know… even if he changed much in eldest I think he must be even more powerful to become a Rider and a powerful one.(At least as powerful as Eragon). Arya is a good inch as she’s already powerful, she’s an elf too that would bring balance to the power of riders as Mike thinks.
    And I also think that only the prophecy of the first book can give Eragon enough power and wisedom (and a blade) to vanquish the Empire.
    Concerning Murtagh I first thought of “dark” methods to learn rider’s art but now I mention Eragon’s prophecy, Galbatorix could have bring Murtagh to the level he has by a similar prophetik way… A source of power, of life or something…

  15. Jon Says:

    I think that Arya will be the next rider, and that with all of her knowledge of magic, and some of Oromis’ tutoring, She will surpass everyone. I think that Eragon will find a blade, tinted blue, like all of the riders’, either under the Menoa tree or Rhunon will make one for him. I think that he will also make one for Arya. I don’t think that Roran is the rider, because there isn’t really any proof that he will be, but Arya is an Elven princess.

  16. berowl Says:

    I agree for every argument, the only thing: arya will not be the new rider because she is an elven princess but because she is an elf, she has power and she has wisdom and finally because the next dragon will hatch in her presence^^
    But this is just a theory…. We all might wrong all the way….

  17. fanfan Says:

    i think there’s no hope arya will be the next rider. because it is the only way eragon and arya can close the gap between them….i think the next book will be called the empire it is the most probable.i strongly disagree with what mike says about eragon liking someone from carvahall especially katrina.

  18. Justice Says:

    I think the next book will be called Empire, and I really, REALLY hope that Arya will be the next Rider. In all probability, she seems the more likely candidate. I would give the reasons, but that would be like parroting the ones you’ve already posted back in your face ^^ They’re all really very good. As for and Eragon/Katrina relationship… I highly doubt it. Katrina is totally and completely commited to Roran, and vice versa. Katrina would never consider Eragon, and judging by his behaviour in Eldest, Eragon has eyes only for Arya.
    I hope that Paolini has an Murtagh point of view in the next book, like he did with Roran and Nasuada.

  19. mr xoxo Says:

    i reckon arya will be the next rider but i think that arya will not be eragons wife to be, we all might bew wrong we will have to wait and see when the book comes out. later guys

  20. berowl Says:

    Justice: Yeah I really agree with you especiallyEragon’s heart interests. I hope Murtagh, will help Eragon even if he swears something in anciant language, I hope he will deturn them…
    Anyway guys, thanks for your comments^^

  21. caleb Says:

    anyone think the next rider will be elva

  22. Brandon Says:

    Yea i know Pialini and he said that Arya is the next rider…..her dragon is the color green and in the end of the book Eragon will kill him self and Galbatorix by overpowering his ability to do magic…

    have any qquestions hit me up at case1pimpin@hotmail.com =)))thanx

  23. Brandon Says:

    o yea and eragon finally meets his mom

  24. hahaha@brandon Says:

    omg brandon, hahah what an attention seeker, if anyone believs what brandon says, u are really an idiot.

    ” I know Pialini, but i can’t spell his name: paolini, right.”

    yeah, shutup.

  25. berowl Says:

    I agree and that’s why I will not retype his comment^^
    anyway what he said is obvious as we all guessed that a long time ago (i mean, since book1)

    I also have an information for you all (I’ll type a post later), I bought the film’s version book realeased yesterday in France and the last page had :
    book 2: Eldest, book 3: release in 2008….

  26. caleb Says:

    elva maybe the next rider just putting it out there

  27. Chris C Says:

    Ok I once had the plesure of talking Pialini and from what I can gather yes the third book will start with an E but empire? I dont think so. He said he put hidden meaning in his books or something like that, Take ERAGON, replace the E with D and you get DRAGON. Now ELDEST eragon is not an only child and his famaly through his mom are dragon riders. So that makes me think that the next one would have some hidden meaning in it like thoughs two.

  28. berowl Says:

    Eragon and “D”ragon stuff is interesting… But see: eragon has 6 letters, eldest has 6 letters, empire has 6 letters… We’ll see anyway won’t we?

  29. Caden Says:

    I am currently re-reading both books and have started noticing things that I happened to miss the first time. Nothing too important though. I would like to put out a few things just to see what people think. So here we go:

    1) I think that the child that Eragon and Saphira blessed will have a part in Book 3. I know the child would only be about 1 year old but i still think that she will have something to do with the next book. Perhaps she has a connection with Eragon and Saphira? Just a thought.

    2) I think that the title “Empire” is very probable for the last book. I was also thinking about something around the word “Elves”. I cannot come up with a 6 letter word that has anything to do with the word “Elf”. I think I have missed something again but why does everyone think that the book will be green? Just asking.

    3) I am excited about the thought of Arya being the next Rider. i would like that very much. I think that that would be very cool. I also considered the fact that Roran becomes the next Rider. That doesnt seem very likely. I am not sure why but he just does not seem like that would work out. I would be very dissappointed if that turns out to be true. Paolini has told us that there has never been a dwarven Rider many times. Most dwarves dont like dragons either. What about the possibility of a dwarven Rider? The only dwarf I can think of that would be a good fit would be Orik. He has been a main character throughout the first 2 books. The fact that most dwarves dont like dragons could also turn out to be a good plot twist. I find this HIGHLY unlikely but I think it could be fun.

    4) The prophecy that Angela gave Eragon has kept me thinking ever since I read it the first time I read it. I am itching to find out what the Vault of Souls is. I liked the suggestion above but that seems very unlikely. Does anyone else have any suggestions. I think that it could possibly be the way that Eragon kills Galbatorix. And why would Eragon have to leave Alagaesia? I think he makes an oath in the ancient language to someone and is forced to leave after killing Galbatorix. There’s a thought.

    Well if someone could help jog my memory and possibly repost ASAP to my thoughts/comments I would seriously enjoy that.

    P.S. – Has anyone played the video game? I am thinkg about buying it and would like to know if it is any good.

    Keep up the good posts. They have finally given me something to do today.

  30. berowl Says:

    For the color of the third book, to answer your question, it is not that we think it will be green but it WILL be green, the author and the drawer said it, also in the first book it is said by Brom or Arya that Galbatorix had three eggs, one blue (Saphira), one red (Graeld), and one green.
    The prophecy also gives me head aches, I just don’t see what it could be. I’ll reread the book soon, but from what I remember the Vault of Souls seemed to be has you said a way to kill Galbatorix. I think this Vault ,as its name suggests it, could be full of souls and Eragon would make a pact with a powerfull one and may be here’s the explanation of Eragon departure from Alagaesia… Perhaps this entity will ask him to leave in exchange of its power. I think the soul could be of Morzan…

    But this goes very far and I don’t think this will be that complicated…. or even improbable….

    • Matthew Says:

      If u read Harry Potter u will find the author ALWAYS tells lies so they can surprise u. So, keeping that in mind the book is unlikely to be green, although the author might do a bluff.

  31. Caden Says:

    Ok thank you. I missed that twice now. But that is a cool thought. What about the rider question I had in my earlier post?

  32. nooness buisyness Says:

    ok first off berowl, you were right about Saphira’s egg being blue, but you were wrong about Graeld, there IS no dragon in the Inheritance series named that, the red dragon’s name is Thorn.

  33. Justice Says:

    Having Orik as a Rider would be a cool plot twist, but I have to say that judging by his behavior when having to ride Saphira in Eldest, it’s highly unlikely. I like Orik well enough, but like I said before, I’d prefer it be Arya.

  34. Caden Says:

    Oh I totally agree. I seriously doubt that but it might be funny. I would definately prefer Arya too. I just cant wait until the third book comes out. Does anyone know the date yet?

  35. Alysha Thompson Says:

    I think that Roran will be the next rider because, almost every family member that Eragon has has been a dragon rider, or important. Like Morzan ( if he really is Eragons son.) and Murtagh, ( if he really is Eragons brother.) Roran also had all that strength to kill the most people in the secound book when their town was under attack.
    He also killed the twins, he was named stronghammer from his village, which means he probley is strong, and he was so brave when they took Katrina, how he risked his life to save her. I also think that Eragons mother Selena has a very important part in book three, and Garrow probley had a pretty interesting life too.
    I do not think that Arya will be the dragon rider because, she is a princes, and the fortune telling in the first book said that he will love a girl that is royal, not that he will love a dragon rider. Paolini also said on a fifferent site that the dragon rider is obvious. Well that is just what I think.

  36. Oni-sama Says:

    I don’t know what to make of all this. All I know is that I will lavish the third book when it comes out, whatever it is, and that I’m thinking the movie is a bit of a disappointment. Too many differences between book and movie. I’ll still go see it, but… ‘~’

  37. Alysha Corbin Says:

    I think the movie is a bit of a disappointment to. But im going to see it.

  38. berowl Says:

    Mee too about the movie…^^
    Well what makes me think Arya will be the next rider is : she’s an elf (before beeinng a princess), she’s already powerfull (well beyond Roran), and in the first book when she teleport Saphira’s egg to the Spine, the light of her magic is green, the same color of the next dragon…
    I also made a mistake as it had been noticed, the red dragon (Murtagh’s) ‘s name is Thorn, and Glaedr exists, it is the name of Oromis’s dragon (I just forgot the spelling).
    (Caden: what is your rider question?)

    And I have some kind of date release for the third book, in France the pocket version of Eragon came out with all Paolini’s books, “Eragon”, “Eldest” and “Third Book : release in 2008) in french of course. So we can expect the book for 2007’s christmas
    but this is just speculation. 2008 was the only information.^^

  39. Vball Says:

    Ok well i think that roran will become the leader of algaesia when galbotorix falls because he is a great leader, he was to all of Carvahall and so i think he will take Galbotorixes place and i think eragon will go off and become the leader of all the riders because i think suphira will “mate” with another dragon like galbatorix wants to do and then eragon will be the leader of that…

  40. Caden Says:

    berowl: My question was just who everyone thought would be the next rider. Also, the possibility of Orik being a rider. Highly unlikely and very humorous. Im pretty sure that he would be the only Rider with an axe. And I would really like the book to be out by next Christmas. It has been like a year since the last book… But I dont want to rush it.

    Vball: I think that your scenario is a very likely possibility. I am pretty sure that is what will happen. But what would happen to Murtagh?

  41. Me Says:

    What about the dream in the first book. You know the one where to Taller than normal people walk on a ship and one is a woman. Also there were two dragons in the background. I think this points towards Ayra as the next rider as well as Pointing out that Eragon will leave with her. Plus his premonition about the war with Murtagrah was correct so maybe this will come true too.

  42. Vball Says:

    Well i think that since Galbatorix will die then murtagh will survive and not be “bad” anymore so i guess he and Eragon will be the leaders of the riders or, Murtagh will die…(i hope not, he is really hot in the movie)

  43. Caden Says:

    haha thats funny
    i bet Murtagh dies and so does Eragon
    maybe even Murtagh dying from killing Galbatorix? maybe overuse of magic??

  44. Slyth Says:

    In the prophecy, when it says that Eragon will leave Alagasia forever doesn’t necessarily mean he will physically leave the country. If the empire is overthrown, it could easily be renamed to symbolize a new beginning. So in that sense everyone would be leaving Alegasia. Just a thought. Pretty convinced Arya is the next rider and Saphira will find her mate with her dragon. I think Murtagh will choose to betray his oath and help eragon. His was all gun ho about defeating the empire and Galbatorix in the first book. His will will come through in the end, but he knows there will be a consequence, prob his life. He
    might give his last strength to eragon to use against Galbatorix.

  45. berowl Says:

    Waooou, everyone have some pretty ideals, especially about Roran becomming the leader of humans and Eragon the leader of riders. I absolutly agree with that.

    Me: I though the dream was about two dragons, one blue and the other red… I mean, I think the color was specified and this would mean that Eragon and Murtagh would live and be friend again(which would be great ).

    Vball: I absolutly agree with the idea of when Galbatorix dies all pledges made by Murtagh would vanish.

    I also think that Saphira and the next green dragon forthcomming will mate to begin a new line.

    Caden: Yeah!!^^ A dwarf on a dragon would be funny, but don’t think so, I mean adwarf using magic seams to me a cat taking a bath lol. As for how everyone think Arya will be the next rider I think they like me made the connection between her green magic when she teleports Saphira’s egg into the Spine in the first book and the color of the next dragon which will be green…

    About the prophecy saying Eragon will leave Alagaesia forever, I think he will leave the continent called Alagaesia to live with elves who I remind you don’t come from Alagaesia but from an island known only by them. Or if it is not the elven island it could be the land where dragons first hatched.

  46. Caden Says:

    I agree with EVERYTHING the berowl is aying…that just seems the most likely and a good ending at that. Has anyone played to the Eragon video game? I am thinking about getting it and am not sure if it is gonna be worth it at all…..just asking!

  47. Vball Says:

    I havent but thats not really wat u wana hear, but it looks kinda cheesy the graphics arent that good cus they have like this video on youtube of Garrett Hedlund(murtagh) doing voiceovers.

  48. berowl Says:

    Well, thanks Caden ^^. But we’ll see in the next book lol
    As for the game, I don’t know, I’ve seen much videos and it seemed a good adventure game, but you should see graphics first (for me they are ok.. thought)

  49. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    i think arya and eragon would mate their dragon Saphira and ***** to bring back the dragons.
    And an idea nowone said: they could be going to vroenguarg and i think 1 of the guards that got killed in the beginning of book 1 was arya’ gf. (the guy that made the aryasfavoroitflower) and arya is scared eragon would die like the guy that she loved before…..
    you can contact me about this at bumjin0705@msn.com

  50. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    empire rider arya vision in death watch chapter is the end of the book

  51. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    i m humming

  52. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    oops sry berowl i just checked my email….

  53. berowl Says:

    Well, your idea is quite interresting even if I don’t see who it is… I’m reading the book again just right now^^

  54. berowl Says:

    WE GOT MORE THAN 50 COMMENTS ON THIS POST, CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!

  55. jen Says:

    I think that arya is a very probable contender for the next dragon rider. but if the next dragon rider is supposed to be related to eragon and murtagh… what if it was their mom Selena. This is just a suggestion that no one put up yet so i thought i’d add it.

  56. jen Says:

    opps!
    Caden: sry i forgot to put on here that i did play a demo for the game. it was okay but the graphics weren’t that good. the fighting style was a lot like the Lord of the Rings games and i didn’t get to ride saphria. hope that this helps u make your decision.

  57. jen Says:

    Wow… just found a heck of a lot of information on Shur’tugal. wow. that’s all i can really say hear is the link:

    http://www.shurtugal.com/?id=trilogy/book3/theories

  58. berowl Says:

    thanks for the link jen, also your theory with eragon’s mother is very probable even if I thought she was dead… but now you remind it to us she gave Eragon to Garrow and ran away… Yeah, that can be a possibility^^

  59. Eragon13 Says:

    I think that Orik may be the next rider. Think about it, he is the only Dwarf to ever ride a Dragon (2nd book) and there has never been a Dwarf Rider. If he became a rider, it would bring more balance then if Arya became one.

  60. Eragon13 Says:

    I just noticed somthing about the movie. Why does Saphira have feathers? I didnt read anywhere in the book where it said she had feathers. mabye I missed somthing. Can someone help me out?

  61. jen Says:

    Eragon13:
    i saw that too and was very dissapointed. As far as i know she doesn’t have feathers. about Orik becoming the next rider… this is very unlikely. If you remember after the war between the dragons and elves the spell was between just the elves and dragons. Eventually, humans were added and yes dwarves could be added but i really don’t think they want to be. They really don’t want any contact with the dragons at all.

  62. i like murtagh Says:

    the game is good u can ride saphira

  63. jen Says:

    i like murtagh:
    when you ride saphira is it only in certain levels or any time you want?

  64. arya+eragon Says:

    just a thought if arya’s dragon and saphira were to “mate” perhaps this would create emotional ties between arya and eragon in the end bonding them together forever

  65. REkki Says:

    well i think that there will be a new character that no one has heard of before, but will have a nice litlle background that fits the witches prohecy. presumable it will be a female and she would be the fondling of the king galbatorix he wouldnt know about her , becuase he killed her mother after he realized that she had a kid (dont you hate when that happens, but this will make the characters past all angsty)
    but the girl survived and was adopted by a high servant or whatever, but this servant will have to be like the care taker of the last dragon egg, so our hopefull herione will eventually learn when she is around eragons age, who killed her mother bla blah blah….then wanting revenge she will steal the last dragon egg and run away. she tries to find eragon to help her. The reason why know one has heard of her yet is becuase gablatrox wants to keep it on the down low becuase that made him look incredible stupid. so

  66. REkki Says:

    whoops aciddebtly submitted that without finishing

    So he sends out murtagh to go find her. but meanwhile the girl will find eragon they will fall in love and all that mushy stuff. im not sure what the rest is, but it will certainly give a nice twist to the “you will fall in love with someone royal” Thing. since techinally the girl is a princess since she is the duaghter of the self appointed king. YYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAYYY i just figured it out. but its just a theory……but ill feel incredible,aswomely freakin great if i was right. ill be the next person who can know what animal thinks, EXCEPT WITH AUTHORS.

  67. death Says:

    will you people ever pick up all the facts?
    first of all morzan is not eragons son. eragon is morans son.
    and the gold dragon isnt graeld its glaedr.
    any way i think that both theories about the prophecie are plausable but i reckon that judging by eragons actions in the 2nd book it will be arya not some new character.
    as for the new dragon rider i think that it will be arya simply because shes elven her magic is already green and it would balance out the riders to have one elven and one human rider.

  68. Mavillah Says:

    I think that murtagh is more powerful than Eragon at the end of B2 because he has already been to the well of souls–check out the part of the book where Eragon tries to invade Murtagh’s mind and note the difference between what he finds and the barriers on Murtag’s mind in the earlier parts of the books…Eragon will receive help at the well of souls from Selena, his mother. Also, I think it unlikely that the next rider will be a human–already to many human riders. The next rider will not be Arya. It could be Venir, although I find this unlikely. Roran will become the leader of the Varden in the third book. The Urgals will populate the hadarac desert and under the Boer mountains becoming friends with the Dwarves. Also, Eragon will defeat Galbatorix by drawing power from the Menoa tree in the elf forest, killing the tree and the forest–this is why the elves will return to their homeland. Eragon will go as well because he will be with Arya, this is why she can’t be a rider–all of the riders can’t leave Alegaesia. Murtagh will come back to the light side, but he will die in the process…that’s all for now.

  69. berowl Says:

    Waooouu… much to read today… ^^
    About Saphira’s wings, I don’t think it is feathers but long scales as the cover of the book.

  70. Danielle Says:

    Brandon it is impossible for Eragon to meet his mother because she is dead

  71. REkki Says:

    i think mavillah has it down, that thoery sounds a whole lot more pausable than my’n. and for Some reason i really dont like Arya, or the idea of her being a dragon rider. i dont know if its me and my litle fetish with things being unconvenctial, or the charcter being so well…..annoying to me, but i think it will be too predictable that ayra will be a dragon rider. the auther(dang it i cant spell) has shown before that he is willing to but some intersting twists in the story, like when he made murtagh an evil dragon rider. I never saw that coming. Also i always thought of murtagh being alot older than eragon, but in in the movie he looks younger than eragon. that confuses me. is it just my perception of the characters or has anyone else thought that murtagh was older than eragon……….hmmm i just realize that it really doesnt matter. oh well. ANYWAY what time is this thing going at? it said it was 2:13 AM but i wrote it at 4:13 Pm.

  72. Anonymous Says:

    In Eragon’s dream about the two people about to sail off with the two dragons in the air, i think the guy crying in the distance is Murtagh and the two people about to leave are Eragon and Arya. It would kind of fit in with the whole leave forever and fall in love with royalty thing. Also I think that the two dragons are Saphira and Thorn because maybe Thorn didn’t really want to be all evil like Murtagh so he decided to leave him to be with Saphira.

  73. Micah Says:

    yo I just read what you said and found a a couple things:

    • just cuz her magic is green, that doesnt make Arya the new rider- Paolini himself said that no matter the color of your magic, it automatically changes to the color of your dragon.
    • I also think that Roran is the new rider, think about it- all the new riders are Eragons relatives(Murtagh, Morzan, I think its too perfect for coincidence)besides, in an interview, Paolini says he gives plenty of clues as to the identity of the next rider(why else would Roran have his story being followed all of a sudden?- And its all chance he is a brutal and cunning fighter- yeah, right)
    • Also, Angela doesnt say Eragon will be invloved with royalty, just that he will fall in love with royalty, and she could not see if it would end for good or ill

    Except for my second point, all of this is just fact, not speculation

  74. Micah Says:

    it cant be Vanir- it has to be someone with natural ability- not magic, but just luckier and more skilled than everyone else

  75. Micah Says:

    when eragon fought vanir, he couldnt win cuz he was HUMAN, but when he turned into that elf-human cross, he destroyed Vanir rather easily

  76. nadia Says:

    I doubt it will be Roran, Paolini says he gives clues to who the rider will be in both the first and second book, and he is not in the first book alot, i do think that arya being the rider is a possibility but i am not sure, it can be a new character though.

  77. berowl Says:

    The theory about Roran is interesting but how will he be a good rider in one book? or less? Eragon will certainly teach him but I can’t imagine it, there’s must be another way, or has someone said it before, the new rider may be a new character…

  78. jen Says:

    I’m pretty sure it isn’t Roran or Vanir… Arya is definetly the most probable

  79. Micah Says:

    Aryas the princess of elves- if Islanzadi dies, and Arya is a rider, who’ll rule them? No, she has too big of a role already to be a rider

  80. Micah Says:

    I dont think there will be a new character as the rider
    OHHH-heres a thought- ELVA shes in both books, and she was blessed by eragon- but maybe shes too young, however, dragons are too wild to pay attention to a small thing such as age
    You comment on it

  81. Mike Says:

    berowl and every one else i’ve been looking at this site quite frequently the past couple of days and had a few questions.

    #1 what exactly is this site? A chat or oppinuions on the next book.

    #2 What do you think will happen to the gold dragon and the elf rider in the next book?

    #3 Does any 1 like or played the Eragon game? (i’m thinking about getting it)

    #4 do any of you have a more exact date for the new book release?

    #5 any idea how long it will be? (how many pgs)

    I hope these questions don’t bother you but send me any thing interesting you find. My email is Mikebigfire@yahoo.com

    thanks,
    Mike

  82. jen Says:

    Well Mike i don’t have page numbers for you but just look at how the size shot up from Eragon to Eldest! It is definitely going to be big!

  83. Micah Says:

    no duh itll be quadmassive, yes i said quadmassive, Eragon still has to kill the Razak and Gal. plus he said he would return to oromis after battle- I bet hell take Roran with him.
    I read somewhere here that someone said Orik could be the next rider. Yeah, dont think so at all. I just hope you remember that Orik is Hrothgars heir to the dwarf throne. Plus dwarves werent included in the pact between elves and dragons, and later, humans.

  84. Darin Says:

    I think that jeod will be the next rider because he was in the first and second book and he helped Brom capure Saphiras egg he know some magic and is part of the varden

  85. jen Says:

    i don’t know about Jeod… he’s kinda old. he probably won’t be able to aquire a lot of power in such a short amount of time.

  86. jen Says:

    Hey, have you guys ever thought that Morzan may not be Eragon’s real dad?

  87. Slyth Says:

    Roran is definetly not a worthy canidite for the next rider. He knows nothing about magic, prob doesn’t even know about the dragon riders or that much about Gal. He would just as niave as Eragon first was and since this is the final book the new rider is going to have to be a powerful character to play a large role in the battle. Roran is also too preoccupied about Katrina and wouldn’t be very focused on learning to defear Gal. Arya is already powerful with magic and knows so much more about everything that is going on throught the country. The most efficient character that will bring more balance to the battle that lays ahead is Arya. Or perhaps it is a character that the books have only mentioned but not met yet. In any case, the odds that Roran is the next rider is very slim.

  88. Slyth Says:

    Yeah, I wondered if Eragon is really Gal’s son and that is why his mom pretented that he was stillborn or whatever she said and gave him to Garrow. Gal was the only one who knew about morzan’s and his wife’s relationship and child, and to keep that secret, he might have asked her to bear him a child, but she hid him and ran away. Just a thought and would be a plausible twist.

  89. Eragon13 Says:

    I don’t think so Darin. He’s too old and he has a wife. no i think its most probable that it’s Arya. Also I think that Solebum and Angela might hold an important role in the next book. What are people’s thoughts on that?

  90. Micah Says:

    of course Angie will have a big part in B3 she said herself that she likes to be where the action is im still not sure about arya- remember that shes 100 years old and the dragons pick yong riders

  91. Tyler Says:

    First of all Elva will not be the next rider she is to young, is barely in the first book, and is already needed by Nasuda.
    Second of all there will not be a dwarf rider because if there was and dragons started dying off agian all three races would be affected drastically.
    Also the blade Eragon finds under the Menoa tree is going to be Brom’s lost Blade/

  92. jen Says:

    Hey Slyth:
    Thanks for answering! I never really thought about it being Gal… who i had in mind was Brom. What do you think?

    Has anyone noticed the resemblance of Eragon to Star Wars or is it just me?

  93. berowl Says:

    Mike :
    Well, I havent’ read comments following yours so someone may have answered already… ^^

    #1 what exactly is this site? A chat or oppinuions on the next book.
    _This site is about every fantasy I like and animes. Eragon, Harry Potter, 300, Death Note, Mushishi… This post “Rumours…” was just a news at first, then people began to write what they thought.. we can say it has become somekind of a forum.. ^^

    #2 What do you think will happen to the gold dragon and the elf rider in the next book?
    _I think they will participate to the last stand against Murtagh and Galbatorix with Eragon and the next rider.

    #3 Does any 1 like or played the Eragon game? (i’m thinking about getting it)
    _I haven’t, but told what I thought about it.

    #4 do any of you have a more exact date for the new book release?
    _2008 is the only (french) release date yet.

    #5 any idea how long it will be? (how many pgs
    _Any idea but quite long I expect.

    And don’t worry, all your comments are welcome and I like that.

  94. berowl Says:

    Darin:
    I don’t think Joed will be the next rider, eggs had quite an opportunity to hatche when he was in their presence with Brom while they where steeling them to Galbatorix…

  95. berowl Says:

    Jen:
    I read on Shurtugal something like that, I mean about Morzan not being Eragon’s father. And I was quite convince, see:

    p. 546

    “While two may share two,
    And one of two is certainly one,
    One might be two.”

    While two sons (Eragon and Murtagh) “may” share the same two parents (Morzan and Selena),
    And one parent of two parents, the Mother-Selena, is certainly the same one parent of both sons,
    One parent, the Father, might be two Fathers (Brom and Morzan) each having one of the sons.
    What in the world could this riddle be about if it doesn’t support the two-father theory?

    Well, what else can we say?

  96. berowl Says:

    Tyler:
    Yeah I agree about Brom’s blade, but quite a strange place to lost a blade… isn’t it? But still it was blue as Saphira’s color.

    jen:
    No pbl
    I also noticed the recemblance with Star Wars, but we must admit that this kind of story line : the good son fighting againd the evil father or relative is great^^.

  97. berowl Says:

    100 COMMENTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THANKS TO EVERYONE

  98. Slyth Says:

    Brom could possibly be eragon’s father. Obviously he chose to hide out in Carvahall where eragon was. But why not he take care of him instead of Garrow? Brom and Morzan are such different people fighting opposite sides of the battle, so why Selena would have been with both of them is a mystery. Though this would be the happy ending for eragon to find out that his father was a good dragon rider and not Morzan.

  99. Dani Says:

    Ive been looking at this web site for the past couple of days and decided to comment.
    I luv Eragon and Eldest. i have practicaly memorized the books and have noticed some things.

    1) Arya will not i repate, WILL NOT be the next dragon rider. Any on who thinks she will be is on crack. Paolini wont do it because Eragon likes Arya, and she doesnt like him. If she is a dragon rider, that wuld tottaly be like weird man. Also she is a main character. Paolini will proably bring up someone totally new, or a very minor character from one of the previos books.

    2) Wont the Varden have to steal the egg to get it to hatch for them? How do you think thats gonna happen? Itll probely hatch for Gal. Or it might not hatch!

    3) I also think that Oromis and Glaedr are going to die. Out with the old and in with the knew!

    4) i have also heard people say the new dragon will be green. How do we know this?
    What about white or brown?

    5) I also have a knew threoy. I propose that Angela is an old dragon rider. I mean she has those dragon knuckle bones, and she looks young but she said she is old. And Oromis mentioned that the night he fleed Illeria that a couple other riders went away with him! She probaly lost her dragon, which is why solobum hangs around

    PS[ this book does relate to star Wars!]

  100. Mike Says:

    Berowl
    About darins comment Jeod might have a chance but like the dwarfs a very very slim chance. He was never truely near Saphira’s egg. In the first book while they tell Eragon what happened while taking the egg the were seperated and jeod thought that Brom was dead.

    For some of these rummors like Galbartix being earagons father are a little unbelevable. So for some peoples sake try and keep it some what real.

    DEAT TO GALBATIX

    see ya
    mike

    send emails with important rummors to mikebigfire@yahoo.com

  101. Mike Says:

    I might of spelt Galbatrix wrong in the last 1 but please don’t write comments about it

  102. Micah Says:

    Dani:
    #1- Gal already has a dragon, so why would it hatch for him? 😦

    #2- Paolini himself said in an interview that the new dragagon is green and will be on the cover of B3. Period.

    #3- im not sure about angie, its possible, so I wont rule it out now, but I think it magic and that she got the knuckles from the elves – I think she is just a witch not a rider

  103. Micah Says:

    GALBATORIX
    just call him Gal

  104. Eragon13 Says:

    another option for the next rider is Nasuada. She is young and she is the leader of the Varden so if the Varden steal the egg, then they will present it to Nasuada and who knows, it might hatch for her. Its Just a thought that no one has put on here.

  105. Vball Says:

    THE MOVIE COMES OUT TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!AHHHH I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND, Garrett Hedlund is an awesome actor and i mean he can really act, (and hes really hott) I CANT FRIKEN WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  106. rob Says:

    i dont know about you all but for the next rider um thinking sloankatrina’s dad lol just kidding yeah ary probably will be the next rider and what do you think of Orik being the next dwarf king

  107. Darin Says:

    Ya that is true so i guess that was a bad guess my next candidade would be Arya because she knows so much about the ancient language and she knows alot about the past. Rob: i to think that Orik will be the next dwarf king because he said that Hrothogar was like a dad to him.

    A blonde a brunette and a red head all die and when you die you need to pass a test to go to heaven. God tells you 100 jokes (1 joke per step in a staircase) and if you laugh at one of them you have to start over again at the bottom of the steps. The brunette goes 10 steps and laughs, the red head goes 7 steps and laughs, and the blonde goes 99 steps and laughs.

    Why did the blonde make it so far without laughing?

    She just got the first joke!!

  111. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    hahahhahaha funny joke joker….

  112. Vball Says:

    That was good, haha, luved it!!! Got any more?

  113. Vball Says:

    did u really mean wat u said about the language or watever?

  114. Vball Says:

    Ha i just got wat ur name was about EragonEldest E*****!!!! Yah im not blonde though im brunette!! LoL

  115. Rachel Says:

    I just discovered this little forum and I got really excited because I’ve been thinking a lot about the books and what not:
    1) I have to vent about the frustrations with the whole Aray situation. You know that you want them to get together and all…but at the same time I start to think that everyone just can’t live happily ever after at the end of book 3. It is a book about war and magic and everything doesn’t end up perfect when you’re mixed up in a war and everything…i was afraid that arya would be too perfect. A thought had crossed my mind though…everyone was talking about the Vault of Souls holding souls of the past right? Well, I thought if he made some kind of pact with them to defeat Galbatorix…maybe those of the past will impart Eragon with a sort of age/wisdom and this could somehow create a way for Arya and Eragon to overcome the age/life experience barrier.

    2) I love the idea of Arya being the next rider and the arguments are pretty strong so my vote goes to her…it somehow would just make sense.

    3) I don’t think the next rider will be Nasuada…she has been this great leader for the Varden and I don’t feel like she could give up her duties to get the proper training that is necessary…

    4) Jeod’s too old to become a rider now and dwarves would do well to stick to stones so my vote is still with Arya

    5) Someone mentioned earlier the possibility of Eragon running off with the elves at the end, hence he would be leaving Alagaesia, but that is a little too Lord of the Rings-esque for me. I don’t think Paolini would end it like that

  116. Darin Says:

    I think that Eragon will go back to the elves and he will become extreamly strong what do you guys think?

  117. Vball Says:

    Weeeeeeeeel since you asked…I also think he will get a lot stronger but not by just going to the elves, i think somehow he will find another way to get stronger but i dont quite no how yet.

  118. berowl Says:

    I think the way your talking about has something to deal with the Prophecy…

  119. Dani Says:

    Yo, the prophecy deals with eragon, not the next rider. Nasuada probely wont be the next rider. She has to run the varden. Orik will definitley be the next dwarf king. And what country/ state is berowl from? Your on at weird times.

  120. Dani Says:

    oh and i didnt mean that the egg will hatch to Gal, just to sombody on his side.

  121. Eragon13 Says:

    If you can find good souls from the past in the Vault of Souls, then there is no reason that there couldn’t be bad souls such as Durza could be there too and affect Eragon in a negative way.

  122. berowl Says:

    Eragon 13:
    I thought about it too… don’t know how to solve it yet.

  123. berowl Says:

    For those who want to know:
    My name’s Beryl (berowl), I’m a 20 year-old student and I live in France. ^^

  124. Darin Says:

    Have any of you guys thought that the name of book three will be inheritence that is what my second guess was

  125. Alalea Says:

    I will be completly devastated if Murtagh dies although i think he might.

  126. Jakester Says:

    Here is a super out-of-here guess for the next dragon rider, but what about Nasuda (dont have right spelling sorry)

  127. Jakester Says:

    I agree with whoever said the blessed child in book one will play a part in book 3

  128. nadia Says:

    I really doubt nasuada is going to be the next dragon rider, she is the leader of the varden, besides unless i missed something in the books to be a dragon rider you have to be able to use magic, and i have never seen her use magic in either one of the books, the Angela being an old dragon rider actually makes pretty good sense, i also think the same about roran being the next dragon rider.

  129. nadia Says:

    i also think that the blessed child will play a part in the 3 book

  130. berowl Says:

    I too agree with you all about the blessed child, the theory about Nasuada is good but I don’t think she’ll become the next rider. And as for the ability to use magic to become a dragon rider, I don’t recall having read Eragon able to use magic before he he became one of them. Perhaps he had a sense of magic which we can guess when he tracks the beast at the beginning of the book…

  131. shvang Says:

    hi guys ! i am new to this site but i have joint many sites before this
    one. let me tell you that paolini confirmed on other sites that there
    will be a massive change in nasuada’s charachter and varden might not support her.he also said that we have lots of clues about the new dragon rider
    and we will not be shocked but a bit surprised. he(paolini)also said
    that elva and “every other charachter” will have a special role to play. Paolini said that he (might) introduce new family members of eragon

    elva is the name of the blessed child

  132. Phoenix Says:

    i saw the movie last nite and it was really good but they skipped so much from the book but then u know they have to do some of that and they never even mentioned Isidar Mithrim but overall it was in fact a really good movie and about the third book im not sure but i dont think Arya will be the next rider she has too much responsibility already ill guess we’ll just have to wait and see

  133. shvang Says:

    whoever said that brom is eragon father gave a good guess
    just to support them-in book1 eragon asks brom wether he knew selena well and brom said well enough to miss her

    someone high above asked a 6 letter elf word=rumors=elvish

    someone also said that murtagh may break the oaths but let me remind you oaths in the a.language are more binding than life itself

    how about the vault of souls is in helgrind eragon said murtaghs mind was full of multitudes of souls maybe m. is drawing energyfrom souls

    eragon is ajihads son

    pg 546 eldest: son and father alike ,both blind as bats
    brom was blind to morzan betrayal eragon to murtaghs

    if you want information on book3 please read thi sight

  134. shvang Says:

    something is wrong with timings if i write a message at 7 pm it says i wrote it at 1 20 pm

  135. Danielle Says:

    I don’t think Arya and Eragon will ever be more than friends because there are hints that Arya was in love before she met Eragon: When she was ambushed by Durza and her fellows were killed she cried out for them, When Eragon asked about her fellow ambassadors she told about only one, and when Eragon was inside of Arya’s tree house looking around he saw a picture of Ayra’s father and a picture of another elf; I beleive the other elf was another ambassador and possibly Arya’s first mate.

  136. Eragon13 Says:

    I also watched the movie last night. Does anyone know if they will make a second one. I think it would be really hard because
    1. They didnt talk a thing about Jeod.
    2. The raz’ac die.
    3. It doesnt show eragon with the scar on his back.
    4. Hrothgar isnt in the movie
    5. Like Pheonix said, The Isidar Mithrim wasnt shown in the movie
    It would just be so hard to make a second one with all the info they left out of the first one. I just dont know how they are gonna do it

  137. jen Says:

    OMG! I was so dissapointed with the movie! I saw it last night and it was a total let down. they cut out so much! sure some had to be cut out but, it was a lot. i think they should have made it longer. i also agree with what Eragon13 has to say about the second movie… how are they going to make it!?! sry guys i get a little worked up sometimes. i think that if you didn’t read the book that the movie would be good. I really liked Saphira when she was little. i saw her and imediatly decided i wanted one. (a dragon that is.) Any one know a store with good prices for dragon eggs? : )

  138. berowl Says:

    I’m dissapointed about Eragon’s scar…. Na dabout his transformation in the second book, I don’t know… but you surely have noticed like me that Arya doesn’t have any elvish ears.
    So they must have an other idea to make him powerful at once because i read somewhere they were intending to make the 2nd movie if this one works. But I think an ending with the suffer of the scar would have been better than a departing ways with Arya, quite an happy ending

  139. berowl Says:

    Oh by the way, I’ve changed the time. It’s now my local time, that is to say, Paris.

  140. Phoenix Says:

    i agree with Eragon13 i dont see how they could make a ssecond movie they just left out too much i mean you have to mention some of those things to be able to understand the second if they make one. Yea and the ending was ruined i think as well when they didnt even mention the scar which plays a big part in the second book but jens write if you didnt read the book it would be an awesome movie. And bout how some people say that Morzan’s not Eragon’s father im not sure i see another way of explaing it.

  141. Phoenix Says:

    oh yeah and if Ajihad is Eragons father than they totally messed up the movie because in the movie he is black but you never know these days

  142. ruby Says:

    how can morzan not be eragons father when murtagh sead it in the ancent language

  143. ruby Says:

    peopel say arya will be the next dragon rider as her magic is green and so is the dragon egg, but paolini says that say someone with red magic is linced with a blue dragon their magic will change couler to blue.
    can somone also say if that made any sence what so ever

  144. Dani Says:

    PARIS! OMG! Im from california! anywho, Morzan might not be Eragons father. [ I dont belive this but im trying to prove a point]. If Murtagh belived if what he was saying was true, then he could say it in the ancient tounge. And about the part concerning leaving alagaesia{ I cant spell} any thing west of the ebba and Az rani rivers is alagaesia. It sounds to me that Paloni could seriosly screw up the 3rd book. like having one of the main characters die, or eragon losse and having the varden flee to one of the countrys beond the sea, ect, ect. oh, and about the vault of souls. its supossed to be in the rock of k- somin i dont have the book with me but to me it sorta sounds like kausta, where brom is from.

  145. Emmy Says:

    Does anyone think it could be King Orrin or Nasuada as the next Rider?

  146. Emmy Says:

    Or maybe Elain? Horst? Jeod? C’mon people, where is your creativity?

  147. Phoenix Says:

    I’m not sure who the next rider is but i dont think its Nasuada or Arya as some people have stated because both of them have way too much responsibility on their hands and they are both heir to the thrones and King Orrin well i highly doubt it because he is a dwarf and they dont even like dragons i also dont believe that Roran is the next rider because hes too preoccupied with saving Katrina i also dont think Angelas the next rider because like some others have stated i think that shes an old rider. so honestly i have no idea who the next rider is thats why im dying for the third book to come out

  148. Phoenix Says:

    i dont thhink Elain Jeod or Horst are the next riders either because Horst is too old and dragons pick young riders that goes for Elain and Jeod as well and Jeod had been around other egs and they would’ve hatched for him then not now at least thats what i think

  149. Phoenix Says:

    plus im not even sure i woant to know until the book comes out its more exciting that way

  150. Emmy Says:

    You’re right…I should wait…but I can still think of ways it could end!

  151. Emmy Says:

    OK…I have decided who I think will be the next Rider (all the names are too confusing)!

    I am routing for Arya, because she plays a big part in the story. Why not make her part bigger.

    My second guess is Roran because all of a sudden, Paolini (thats not how you spell it is it?) is writting from his point of view.

    Hopefully I can stick to my decision! 🙂

  152. Phoenix Says:

    yea i know im still guessing what will happen but i guess we have no choice do we and if i had to choos ewho the next rider would be id go with Arya even though i dont find it likely but actually one person i was hoping wouldnt be the next rider was Roran i dont know why i just dont see how he could fit the part but thats just me

  153. Phoenix Says:

    and you did spelled it right and someone said earlier that it kinda was similiar to Staw Wars because i thought it reminded me of Lord of the Rings i dont know i can have a weird imagination sometimes

    Yay! I can spell!

    If I was Paolini, I would have held a vote where fans could say who they think should be the next Rider. I wouldn’t have nessisarilily (there is my bad spelling again, guess i’m not that good) gone with what they chose, but hey, im not him and i can make a decision anyways! ;P

  155. Emmy Says:

    Hey, Pheonix, where do you live?
    Are you in a country like me where the time is different?
    Just wondering because otherwise you are up late/early.

  156. Basslyra Says:

    Maybe in Gal’s rage if he loses another battle, he might accidentally break the dragon egg and there will be no new rider! LOL, jkjk.
    I’m not rooting for Arya to be the new rider because she (Like others have said) Has WAY too much responsibility on her hands.
    If I was rooting for anyone to be the new rider, I would have to say Roran because he plays a huge role in B2.
    Another possibility is that Eragon will somehow draw strength from the Vault Of Souls?
    That’s what I think but it’s highly unlikely he could draw power from dead people.
    Anyway, I’m re-reading both books for clues, and I’ll post again if I notice anything suspicious, lol.

  157. Emmy Says:

    i’m rereading the book to.
    i’m at a point in B2 where they are explaining what Eragon has to do to release Elva from the curse Eragon put on her.

    Anyone know what he has to do?

  158. Eragon29 Says:

    Hi , I just found this site but I was wondering. Earlier near the top of the posts, someone wrote that Roran might take over as leader of the Varden. If that were true, then Nasuada could become the next rider.

    Thx, Bm

  159. Eragon29 Says:

    11:21 PM my time

  160. shvang Says:

    guys! i am rather shocked and a bit hurt that no one exept pheonix
    noticed anything that i said. Please pay attention i have nearly told you who the next dragon rider is. No,it is not nasuada. I love this site but seriously people just run through what i said.

  161. shvang Says:

    how about this orrin dies during the battle against gal and no body is ready to take his place so eragon goes to surda to become king?

  162. Eragon13 Says:

    No way shvang. He already promised nasuada that he would take over the varden if she died.

  163. shvang Says:

    if gal dies i doubt if we need the varden and i also told you that paolini said there will be a massive change in nasuada’s charachter and the varden might not support her

  164. Phoenix Says:

    i live in South Carolina emmy i agree with shvang if gal dies they probably wont need the varden

  165. Phoenix Says:

    but id keep the varden around or at least ready to fight because you never know if Murtaugh will take gals place even though i hope he breaks his oaths and joins Eragon because truth be told he is my favorite character

  166. shvang Says:

    above i said that the vault of souls can be in helgrind i stick to it because in the a. language helgrind means gates of death.
    so maybe after you die your spirit goes to helgrind from where it goes to the vault of souls

  167. Phoenix Says:

    i just read Eragon29’s comment and Nasuada would have to be overthrown leave or die before Roran could become the next rider because as of now shes the leader and even if the varden wont support her it would still take a whole lot to get dethrown her

  168. shvang Says:

    pheonix: i am telling you again oath in the a. language can not be broken because they are more binding then life itself

  169. shvang Says:

    the next d r is definetly not a new charachter

  170. Phoenix Says:

    i know that they are more binding than life itself there but thats just what i wish would happen and maybe he’ll brake his oaths then have to die for it at least he’d go out on the right side of the battlefield im just routing for him because he was my favorite character and he was soo determined in the first book to slay Gal
    and i also know the next rider isnt a new one

  171. shvang Says:

    hey guys if anyone of you wants any informationon the following questions i can guarantee you a near perfect answer:

    what lies under the menoa tree? (i can give a perfect answer)

    where is the vault of souls?

    you can also ask me any question you want!

  172. Phoenix Says:

    ok then whos the next rider? can you give me the perfect answer to that one

  173. shvang Says:

    ok! i did’nt guarantee you a perfect answer but a near perfect one.

    ans) arya(very little chance),roran(quite a chance),vandir(little chance),elva(lots of chance),anjela and orik( a slim chance)thats all i can tell about this q try asking me another 1

  174. shvang Says:

    hey guys i found the name of saphiras voice it is rachel weisz

  175. shvang Says:

    I say that roran might be the next rider because he is on a quest to rescue katrina for which he might even have to go to gal’s palace itself in which case he will go near one of the eggs which might just hatch for him. i’ll ask you how else will our heros get the egg if gal has it guarded day and night?

  176. shvang Says:

    guys i wont be answering for around17 hours so wait bye!

  177. nadia Says:

    just because roran and eragon might rescue the egg together dosent mean that he would be the next rider

  178. nadia Says:

    i did hear that nasuada was going to have a much huger part in the third book but i dont think she will be the next rider, and talking about nasuada and i am not sure if i am correct does she like Murtagh?

  179. Eragon29 Says:

    I agree with shvang because he does have to go to the palace and so the dragon egg might hatch for him.

    Also ,Paolini said that there would be a massive change in nasuada’s character and the varden might not support her. So Roran could still become leader of the varden without her dying or anything like that.

    That could just be what I think ya know. Most of that is opinion tho.

  180. Eragon29 Says:

    i would like it if Arya was the next Rider because next to Brom and Eragon, She is my favorite character.

  181. nadia Says:

    i dont know if arya should become a dragon rider, she is who eragon likes and i dont know whats going to happen between them but, i would be sort of weird if she became one, but i guess she could be the next dragon rider.

  182. Eragon29 Says:

    Nadia, I think she likes Murtagh. Didn’t she visit him tons of times when he was confined in the cell in the Varden.

  183. Eragon29 Says:

    In the kingdom by the sea,
    In the mountains mantled blue,
    On frigid winter’s final day
    Was born a man with but one task:

    To kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Nurtured by the kind and wise
    Under oaks as old as time,
    He ran with deer and wrestled bears,
    And from his elders learned the skills,

    To kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Taught to spy the thief in black
    When he grabs the weak and strong;
    To block his blows andfight the fiend
    With rag and rock and plant and bone;

    And kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Quick as thought, the years did turn,
    ‘Til the man had come of age,
    His body burned with fevered rage,
    While youth’s impatience seared his veins.

    Then he met a maiden fair,
    Who was tall and strong and wise,
    Her brow adorned with Geda’s Light,
    Which shone upon her trailing gown.

    In her eyes of midnight blue,
    In those enigmatic pools,
    Appeared to him a future bright,
    Together, where they would not have

    To fear the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

  184. Phoenix Says:

    well if Nadia does like Murtaugh she better hope noone finds out b/c hes not exactly a fav of the varden but i must say who could blame b/c they picked a right good looking guy to play him in the movie and you’re rite she doesnt have to die for Roran to become leader but would she leave after all her father had started and accomplished

  185. Phoenix Says:

    cool poem where’s that at in the book

  186. Eragon29 Says:

    In the dark before the dawn,
    In the room where slept the man,
    The foe, he crept and loomed above
    His mighty rival now so weak.

    From his pillow did the man
    Raise his head and gaze upon
    The cold and empty face of Death,
    The king of everlastin night.

    Calm acceptance filled the man’s
    Aged heart’ for long ago,
    He’d lost all fear of Death’s embrace,
    The last embrace a man will know.

    Gentle as a morning breeze,
    Bent the foe and from the man
    His glowing, pulsing spirit took,
    And thence in peace they went to dwell,

    Forevermore in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

  187. Eragon29 Says:

    these two poem were seperated by a paragraph, so I just wrote them seperate.(from Eldest).

  188. Eragon29 Says:

    Eldest pg463

  189. Eragon29 Says:

    Or she could be overthrown by the Varden themselves

  190. Phoenix Says:

    Hey Eragon 29 i just read on Answers.com that Murtaugh favors Nasuada but it doesnt say if she favors him or not

  191. Phoenix Says:

    Here’s what it said “It is hinted in Eragon that Murtagh is fascinated by Nasuada (something that Eragon also guesses), who eventually becomes the leader of the Varden in Eldest. When talking about her to Eragon, Murtagh says that when he first saw Nasuada, “I thought she was one of the great ladies of Galbatorix’s court. I’ve seen earls and counts who had wives that, compared to her, were more fitted for life as a hog than of nobility.” Murtagh is eighteen, Nasuada is seventeen and Eragon is fifteen when the three of them are in Tronjheim, and there are certain similarities between Murtagh and Nasuada. Both are intelligent, with strong leadership qualities, and are extremely politically astute. They are the offspring of opposing political forces: Murtagh the son of the leader of the Forsworn, Nasuada the daughter of the leader of the Varden. They inherit these positions in Eldest, with Murtagh becoming a Rider and the second most important person in the Empire (after the king) and Nasuada becoming one of the main leaders of the Resistance. Their personalities also complement each other – while Murtagh is cool and guarded, Nasuada is warmer and more affectionate.”

  192. Phoenix Says:

    It also says this about Nasuada “While his betrayal in Eldest seems to destroy all hope of a relationship between them, Nasuada shows regret (in the beginning of the second novel) that Murtagh seems to have died and (later in the same novel) that Murtagh has turned traitor. When Murtagh is thought dead, Nasuada confesses quietly, “I liked Murtagh a great deal”; later when Eragon tells her and Arya of Murtagh’s forced betrayal, she is deeply moved by compassion and sadness.’ So i guess she liked him too.

  193. berowl Says:

    the poem is in the 2nd book, where Eragon goes to the elf ceremony in front of Menoa Tree, just before he receives his new powers.

    And I think Arya is the most likely candidate to become the rider of the green dragon. First, there is the fact that she is an elf, and a strong and talented elf at that. From what we’ve seen of her skills both with magic and with the sword, she would require very little training to be useful in battle, merely enough time for the green dragon to become mature enough to fight well in battle, which would be as soon as the green dragon learned to breathe fire, around six months after hatching. Along with that, Arya is female, and not just that but Eragon’s love interest. If Saphira were to fall in love with and mate with the green dragon, that would change Arya’s feelings for Eragon and the two of them would fall in love, as well. Third, two of the most often mentioned facts about Arya are her eye and magic color: emerald green. While eye color certainly has nothing to do with becoming a dragon rider, all of the riders we’ve seen so far in the trilogy have possessed magic the color of his dragon. While there is no evidence that this is always true, it can be interpreted as foreshadowing to her upcoming relation to the green dragon.

    The main piece of evidence against Arya is that people claim she is too old. However, there is no evidence that there is a set age limit for becoming a rider, so such a point is meaningless.

    So, it is highly likely that Arya will be the rider of the green dragon.

    I definitly agree with Shurtugal rumors, and if the rider is someone else, I don’t care, I’d like that, I mean this will be good surprise anyway, this will be a dragon rider right?

  194. Phoenix Says:

    well with the evidence u use it does sound like she mite be the next rider but i still wont to be surprised

  195. berowl Says:

    200 COMMENTS, YEAH !!!
    Well , if we believe what someone told earlier, we all will be surprised. And I must say every time I tried to guess what will happen in a book, I was wrong and wasn’t the only one, I escpecialy think about the Harry Potter’s. And definitly, I would never have guessed Murtagh’s relation with Eragon, nor his betrayal.

  196. berowl Says:

    I WANT TO READ THE 3RD BOOK NOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!
    damn,
    sorry…

  197. Phoenix Says:

    wait you have’nt read Eldest yet or are u still shocked

  198. Phoenix Says:

    i was asking u if u had read Eldest b/c u u know a lot about it but then u jus said i want to read the book

  199. berowl Says:

    lool, no sorry, I mistyped my last comment, and I DO have read Eldest, it would have been a shame, isn’t it? How could I dare make a rumor post?! 😉 lol

  200. berowl Says:

    I loved Eldest lol, and personnaly, I loved Murtagh before he was cute as an actor lol, I’m not concerned as I’m a man lol

  201. nadia Says:

    i do think arya will be the next rider just for the fact, that she is an elf and brom said that elves used to be the majority in dragon riders, so it would makes sense for her to be the next rider, also not only that she is eragon love interest and i am sure is going to happen between them in the third book it would only make sense after all.

  202. nadia Says:

    arya is probably one of my favorite characters and i do belive she likes eragon but is afraid to say it because she thinks the same thing that happened to Faolin might happen to him

  203. Dani Says:

    Murtagh and Nasuada got somin goin on!!!! yeah man! Dude i think i found a way that murtagh could break his oaths to gal. if he swears loyalty to some one eles, then he could like nullify the preavois oaths. I HOPE SO!! hes like my favorite character man! Or gal could DIE and he can be released. Oh, and berowl, is this site aoutomaticly translated to english or do nyou tpye in english because people in frnce normally speak like francish. Dude i found like more evidance that angela is an old rider.
    1] She wins that one dwarf sword at the dwarf city. Even varden witches dont go to other dwarf citys
    2] like after she comes back from poisining all the soilders in gals camp, it mentions somthin like her swinging more gracful than a human over the barriers.
    IM SO MAD MY SISTER STOLE MY INHERITANCE BOOKS!!!!!
    i think the next rider will be a girl. Because that would just like be cool man.
    Shvang, give me a perfect answer about what lies under the menoa tree because i bet i have an even better answer about it.oh i dicovered somting, the map Paoloni drew is very simaler to the map in lord of the rings!
    I WANT TO READ THE 3RD BOOK NOW OR ELES SOME ONES HEAD IS GOING TO GET BASHED IN!!!

  204. nadia Says:

    also has any of you guys senn the movie yet?

  205. Dani Says:

    Faolin is arya ex- lover, which is why arya doesnt like eragon

  206. Dani Says:

    Nope, my freind saw it and said it was a dissopointment so i decided to wait and rent it

  207. Dani Says:

    Nadia, where are you from? { state wise}

  208. nadia Says:

    i think that maybe nasuada will help bringing murtagh back to their side

  209. Dani Says:

    ;p :] :[ :0 { happy faces}

  210. nadia Says:

    united states why?

  211. Dani Says:

    Maybe Murtagh will like nasuada so much, he will join the good side. Naah!

  212. Dani Says:

    Some one is actuaaly on when I am!!!!!!!!!!

  213. Dani Says:

    Oh yeah, which state r u from, im just wondering

  214. Dani Says:

    DEATH TO GALBATORIXS

  215. nadia Says:

    new york

  216. nadia Says:

    hey a wonder if maybe a dwarf could be the next rider

  217. Dani Says:

    dwarfs cant be riders beacause they werent included in the original spell, when the riders where first created

  218. Dani Says:

    g2g see ya 2marro

  219. nadia Says:

    YEAH!!!!!! GALBATORIX NEEDS TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!

  220. berowl Says:

    Dani & nadia seem to have fun ^^ lol 🙂

  221. Dani Says:

    dude i got my books back from it{ aka my sister}

  222. Phoenix Says:

    hey nadia i saw the movie it was good but they left a ton out if you look above someone mentions a lot of the stuff missinbut overall it was ok but no where near as good as the book and i dont even see how they could make a second one i mean in the movie the IsidAR Mithrim wasnt even mentioned the razaac were killed it never mentioned Katrina they left out too much but still worth seeing

  223. Dani Says:

    Roran pobaley wont be the next rider because he might be to old and any way he has to rescue katrina and settle down and have a family after the war. Aya wont be because she is definitly to old, shes 100 and even elvish riders dragon ha they were 20. Nasuada has to run the varden, or she will die, and she doesnt have time to get the proper training. Jeods to old, anyone from caravahall is either a] to old or b] to much of a minor character to be counted. I think the most definite possibility is a girl human. and as anyone considered how the flip the varden is gonna steal the egg in the first place?

  224. Dani Says:

    oh, and a dwarf cant be it for reasons i mentioned above.

  225. Dani Says:

    does anyone think that
    selena/ morzan are still alive
    galbatorixs has a kid
    that murtagh gonna die in the last book
    that gal is gonna die in the last book
    murtagh gonna go to the varden
    eragon is gonna die in the last book
    that the varden gonna flee alagaesia
    raz zack ganna die
    katrina gonna die
    ect ect ect ect

  226. Dani Says:

    I dont want to offend any canadians, but ya know how canadians always say Ay after everything? like ” ya want to go catch some butterflys, ay” well, when they were deciding the name for canada they drew letters out of a hat.”C,ay N,ay D, ay”
    { note that ay sounds like the letter a}

  227. Dani Says:

    Yo encanto eragon y eldest. Mi favorito libros porque estos genial!

  228. Dani Says:

    pssst: i think berowl will be mad that were not talking about eragon/eldest and that were just wasting commenting space

    (berowl: Yes indead and excuse me if I had to delete your jokes and your guesses about stuff way too far from eragon, but was fun actually. But please use your emails to communicate about other things than eragon and not this site^^, thank you)

  229. Eragon13 Says:

    ya probably

  230. Eragon13 Says:

    So did you hear they made a movie out of the first book?

  231. Dani Says:

    and just because im a blonde, doesnt mean that every single joke will go over my head!

  232. Eragon13 Says:

    Did ya hear?

  233. Dani Says:

    No i didnt, ya idiot! Everyone just been talking about it for the past 2 weeks and the official website has had posted for about oh…. estimated 7 months.

  234. Dani Says:

    sorry that i cant continue this lovely conversation, but i g2g because my little sister is sick and requires medical attention.

  235. Eragon13 Says:

    super, take care then, bye bye now

  236. Eragon13 Says:

    Sorry berowl, me and Dani kind got off topic

    (berowl: … (exhausted))

  237. Mike Says:

    Come on you have to be kidding me! Nausada as the next dragon rider. and all of the off topic stuff (which is stupid as h**l). so lets stay with the inheritance trilogy. Arya is surely to be the next rider. and the new ruler for Alegasia will either be Roran or Nausada (possible King Orrin). So come on people just drop some of the stupid stuff.

    Contact me with cool stuff @ mikebigfire@yahoo.com

    and who made this site if any one knows?

    see ya

  238. Mike Says:

    how would u rate the movie? (by Stars)

    See Ya

  239. Mike Says:

    what was the other name topic?

    See ya
    mike

  240. caylemister Says:

    I don’t know why everyone is so hiped up on Arya being the new rider. She is already powerful enough without giving her a huge, fire-breathing, flying lizard. Paloni is smarter than that and would definatly think up a better plot twist than that. Roran would be a good choice in my mind. A dwarf rider would be a prospect with possiblities as well since there has never been one. How do we know that the new rider has even been introduced yet? Or that he will side with Eragon? He could just as easily side with Gallbitorix and thus force Eragon to become even more powerful. As for the prophecy issue, that sword maker guy could make a new sword underneath the Menoa tree. The Vault of Souls could be the power source that Eragon needs, and he will probly defeat Gallbitorix with the spell that Brom told Eragon as he died from the knife wound. Give it some thought and reply.

  241. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    3 mistakes in book tha i detected.
    2 are spelling: !)eld 2)hostel

  242. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    could eragon be leaving alagastar forever to look for wild deagons?
    cayle, i dont agree with you.
    arya is notthat powerful, only powerful as most elves.
    and why would paloni have to have a power balance when the 9 times f***** galbatorix is so overpowered.
    and arya fits together with eragon. why cant they mate?

  246. Phoenix Says:

    hey mike i’d give the movie a 3 star rating b/c they left soo much out in fact with all they did i dont even see how they could do a second one but they probably will theres a comment above that tells some of wut was added and left out

  247. Justice Says:

    I just had a thought: Whatever happened to Brom’s old sword–the one he got when he was a Rider? Because if Eragon fids it then he would have a new weapon that matches Saphira, and Rhunon wouldn’t have to forge him one.

    And a side note: I SERIOUSLY advise AGAINST seeing the Eragon movie. It made me cry, it was that bad. And by bad, I mean that it dind’t follow the book at all, ‘cept for Brom’s grave, and maybe a couple other things.

  248. Justice Says:

    o I guess I would give the movie maybe one star.

  249. Phoenix Says:

    Brom lost his sword when he killed Morzan but some people think it mite be under the Menoa tree

  250. Phoenix Says:

    oh and the movie deserves at least 3 stars cuz think if u had never read the book it would be an awesome movie rite

  251. Eragon29 Says:

    You guys need to stop wasteing post space with all of ya’lls spanish ok?
    My best friend went to see the movie, and she didn’t like it because Brom doesn’t die right or something. Does it ever really say that brom lost his sword when he killed morzan? Nasuada can’t be in love with Orik because she loves Murtagh.

    Dani, where you from?If USA, what state

  252. Eragon29 Says:

    It does not deserve 3 stars because people only want to see the movie because they read the book.

    Has anyone here read any of Tamora Pierce’s or Darren Shan’s books?

  253. Eragon29 Says:

    talk to you guy’s later, maybe tomorrow. (I love this site, I love debating books)

  254. Phoenix Says:

    But think about out of all the people who worked on the movie do you think they did it b/c it was good or b/c it was popular but in a way u r rite and no i havent read their books wut kind of stuff do they write

  255. Eragon29 Says:

    Tamora Pierce is an author for girls because it is about Lady Knights and magicians and the sort. But it is really good. Darren Shan writes books about a vampire named (wouldn’t ya know it) Darren Shan. They are both very good authors.

    where are you from Pheonix, If its is the USA, which state?

  256. Eragon29 Says:

    Did berowl create this site or what?

  257. Death's Doorbell Says:

    Well, I don’t want to speculate as to who the next rider will be, but have you guys ever thought this:
    If the new rider was Arya, then why didnt the dragon-egg hatch for her while she was carrying it across Alageasia?
    I know the dragon only hatches for its destened rider, but that could’ve easily been Arya. Saphira likes her deosnt she?

    And I think Gal will try to capture Arya and bend her to his will.
    I think and hope that Murtagh will turn “good” in the end.

  258. Death's Doorbell Says:

    Has anyone realised the similarities between Eragon/Eldest and Lord of the Rings?
    I mean…
    1. Orcs = Urgals
    2. Elves
    3. Dawves (and i think it very unlikely that Orik will become the next Dragon-Rider)
    4. And the whole age difference thing
    5. Gandalf is kinda like Brom or Oromis
    6. Arya is like the elf girl (i forgot her name)
    7. Eragon is like Aragorn (note the similarity in names as well)
    8. And the talking trees thing

    But I still love Eragon and Eldest, its a great story i think.

  259. Emmy Says:

    well if you read the intro to the books, you would realise IN ENGLISH it says that Paolini got inspiration from LORD OF THE RINGS!!!

    did you read that????

  260. Emmy Says:

    Yeah, eldest is pretty cool

  261. jordon Says:

    i think that the vault of souls is where you learn your own name in the ancient language giving you far more power

    what do you think

    dani:you asked me for that answer here it is

    ans)if you see a dictionary then you will see that roots are defined as origin so what is the origin of the menoa tree. i think that it is two elven families you remember that the old elf sword maker had said that only two of her creations are left both with very old families. 1 sword used to belong to brom which was blue coloured and 1 emerald sword which belongs to the next rider.
    i will say 1 more thing do you remember the chapter named inheritance in eldest well how about this zar’rock was murtagh inheritance so this blue sword might be eragon’s inheritancethat way eragon could also be brom’s son and the third rider would have the green sword as his inheritance

  263. shvang Says:

    what isaid above also gives us a clue about who the next d r is
    if eragon was brom son and murtagh morzans than what is the most common thing between them that both father and son were d r
    so the next d r father must be 1 2

  264. shvang Says:

    the next d r mightmightmight be the offspirng of galbatorix,vrael or irnstad.

  265. Phoenix Says:

    Hey Eragon 29 im from South carolina and those authors sound pretty good if you like vampires you should check out Stephenie Meyers she writes about a vampire who falls in love with a human i know it sounds really mushy but its not its goig to be a series the first one is called Twilight and Shvang if the next rider was one of their offsprings then they would’ve had to have been in both books i mean its possible i just dont see who it could be

  266. shvang Says:

    even i dont see who it could be but we might be just as surprised as we were when we found out that eragon and murtagh were morzans sons! let’s give some cool gueses

  267. shvang Says:

    how did you find my answer to dani’s q?

  268. Phoenix Says:

    You know i keep looking over the both books and i cant find anybody that would even seem half way decent to become the next rider Now Paolini says its someone in both books and it will shock but if hes left clues in both books as to who it isand its starting to drive me mad over who it mite be soo if anyone has a perfect answer as to who it mmay be please tell me

  269. shvang Says:

    pheonix you are my good freind so i will ask you ifyou want to know who the next d r is than you should just tell me a list of those people whp you think might be

  270. zantraxx Says:

    In the ligrary at my school there is a poster there that says the name of the new book and it says glaedr. I personally think that oromis will find some way to heal glaedr and help eragon over throw the empire. But then again the poster could be wrong and me just a retarded fool who really knows?

  271. Phoenix Says:

    thats just it i dont noe who it mite be i think Arya but i just dont see it happening if i thought i knew i wouldnt ask not meaning to be rude there

  272. zantraxx Says:

  273. zantraxx Says:

    i personally hope it will be arya and not oromis returning or roran becoming a rider then eragon might get what he desires and over throw the empire together:-)

  274. Phoenix Says:

    iT SAYS ABOVE ABOUT THE WHOLE GLEADR THING ALL WE KNOW IS THE COVERS GOIN TO HAVE AN EMERALD DRAGON FACING TO THE RITE ON THE FRONT BUT WE THINK ITS CALLED EMPIRE ITS SAYS ABOVE IN ANOTHER COMMENT ABOUT THE WHOLE GLEADR THING I THINK IN FRANCE OR SOMEWHERE THEY HAD TO PRINT ELDEST IN TWO DIFFERENT COPIES
    IM NOT SURE YOULL HAVE TO LOOKAOVE TO KNOW

  275. zantraxx Says:

    Did anyone eles here about glaedr beind the title of ther new dragon?
    I also think that maybe the new dragon will be gold and just be named after glaedr’
    I think it would be cool if eragon rescued the last egg and when he touched it it hatched and he got 2 dragons that would be insain

  276. zantraxx Says:

    Is the game any good i didnt get a chance to play and want to here how it is before i buy it?

  277. Phoenix Says:

    the new dragon is green thts why we think tht Arya mite be the new rder b/c aryas magic is green and your magic is the same color as the dragon

  278. E.lover Says:

    I think murtagh will try to ressurect eragon and dies. but I dunno, btw hes my fav character!!!! and If CP kills off Murtagh he’s not going to wake up the next day

  279. Phoenix Says:

    hes my fav charachter too even if he did betray Eragon and the othersbut ill think hell do the rite thing in the end

  280. Phoenix Says:

    hey when it tells how many comments there are it keeps gettin llower not higher
    it was 334 now its 299

  281. berowl Says:

    And now its 288 because I deleted most of “useless conversation”. I apologize but this had to happen.

    Eragon 13 and Dani:
    Nothing personal guys but your conversation was way too far from the subject : RUMORS ABOUT 3RD BOOK OF INHERITENCE TRILOGIE. So please use your emails to talk to each others. For this you may comment and put your email adress.
    Please understand, this site and espessialy this part of the site is beginning to become really huge and not every one enjoys reading useless stuff.

    Sorry again but please understand me. (reading each night about a 100 comments is exhausting). And as it had been asked, yes I created this site.

  282. Phoenix Says:

    i just saw an interview and they have already started filming the second movie

  283. Phoenix Says:

    i know i still dont see how they can do itbut the actors said they were already filming

  284. Phoenix Says:

    i hope its better than this one and longer too this one was too short

  285. berowl Says:

    What about the scar, the transformation?
    I had an ich the other day about the transformation. Brom at the beginning of the first book tells Eragon that some dragon riders get elvish morphology like ears, strenght…ect. What if the transformation in front of Menoa Tree was some kind of an acceleration of the development of his powers? and that made me think they will do the evolution of powers whatever because they can’t transfom him now as any elf of the movie has elvish caracteristics apart from strenght, whisdom and age.

  286. berowl Says:

    lol yeah, and I think it will (I mean better and longer), I think this first one worked well, and again hit hasnt been released in every country yet, in France, here, it comes out the day after tomorow. But I can’t wait Eragon and Murtagh’s confrontation… ^^

  287. casey Says:

    first of all the dragon will be green in the third book…secondly selena the mother of eragon and murtagh died…it says so in the first book, can’t remember which chapter.

  288. berowl Says:

    I wondered about that…. M’going to read it again, I have to read it in two days lol (as the movie comes out wednesday here). And I was wondering also when Selena and Brom could have make love to give birth to Eragon if we consider Brom being Eragon’s father-theory right.

  289. Phoenix Says:

    It would’ve had to have been when Morzan was still alive because Selana fled with Eragon when Morzan was alive soo if Brom did make love to Selana then no wonder he killed MorzanI mean by the time he killed Morzan Selena was dead so he could’ve been avenging her death in some way and Eragon needed protecting in case Morzan found out so if Brom is Eragons father it kind of makes sense

  290. Phoenix Says:

    Dude is no one on or what

  291. berowl Says:

    Me only but not for long…

  292. berowl Says:

    Yeah that makes sense. But what I prefered from Eragon is his link with the first rider and also when he discovers the painting in the Dwarf town showing Eragon looking at the egg, an expression and attitude that reminded himself. Just loved this part… 🙂

  293. berowl Says:

    To come back on the 3rd rider’s identity, it will make sense if it’s Arya, but I believe also that another member of Eragon’s familmy that is to say Morzan’s relative will become the next rider. Roran could be the one in that case. Who else? I wonder how Paolini could introduce a new character in half a book and make him/her dragon rider. The Blessed child may be? Do’t think so even if she’s quite linked to Eragon. And a woman dragon rider would bring balance to the thing I think. I mean, would be great. A man and a woman dragon rider, a female and male dragon, all linked to bring back a new generation of dragons and dragon riders, because as their mind is linked, I mean dragon riders and dragons, if dragons fall in love with each other, there’s a good chance to be the same for the dragon riders as well.

  294. berowl Says:

    If I want to finish the book, I got to go. I’m not asleep until 1am I think, I love too much Eragon books^^

  295. Dani Says:

    Hi! berowl, sorry bout the whole sasquatch conversation, but im stubborn and i had to prove my point.
    eragon29= for your info, im from california.

  296. Dani Says:

    yeah, i think the next rider will be a girl, beacause it would be, like balanced. Oh, and berowl, you bring up a good point, the next rider cant be a new character cuz it would be impossible for the next rider to be introduced in 1/2 a book a become a rider. thanks for lettin me realiz that^^! Although, morzan might have some relitives that we dont know bout. Or somone might steal the egg, not for the varden, have it hatch for them, and then like, have it, along with it teacher, appear at the final battle and help eragon deafeat the empire! cuz like some of the old dragon riders survived and could like teach the new rider! Man, my imagination is like, freaked up right now.

  297. Dani Says:

    oh and this as happened in some other trilogys, like the authors “math could be bad” and instead of a trilogy, it could have, like 4 or even 5 books! man that would suck, although it would be a huge money maker for Paloni. Just think about it. estamate, 35$
    bucks a book, a million books sold, man i wish i have my calculator, and dont even get me started on the other movies{ if they make them, they really srewed this one up}. And wouldnt that be a plot twist?

  298. EragonFan Says:

    I couldn’t read through all of the comments, (My eyes were starting to hurt) but did any of you go see the movie? I did. The 16th, my b-day, and I thought it was good. They left out a lot of stuff and added stuff not needed. I do not want to give anything away but, I will say this, They forgot Solembum, (I liked him) and they also added the part where Arya is not drugged and knocked out. They had her up and walking about with Eragon and Saphira. That’s all I’m saying. But did you guys like the movie (for those who saw it)?

  299. masterx984 Says:

    to many rumoors to reaad

  300. masterx984 Says:

    there arent any drawes in the movie

  301. masterx984 Says:

    has any body read all these comments

  302. feanor_03 Says:

    masterx984, yeah, I’ve read all the comments. Lots of interesting theories. I agree with the theories (I think) at http://www.shurtugal.com/?id=trilogy/book3/theories This comment list is awesome berowl!!!!

  303. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    eragonfan d u no ryan raimo

  304. Phoenix Says:

    i saw the movie and liked it but you’re rite they left a lot out the par that got me was that tehy made it seem as if Arya was leading Eragon on and shes been trying to lead him away for both of the books at least away for an intimate relationship and i dont think the rider will be new mainly b/c Paolini said it would be someone who was in both books and would surprise and yet not surprise us.well ive got to go talk to you guys tomorrow who knew thered be so much controversy of a trilogy

  305. Caylemister Says:

    I havn’t seen the movie. with reading all this stuff I am starting to wonder wether I am or not. In response to EragonEldestE*****, You have some good ideas. I just think that it would be way to predictable to make Arya the next rider. No offence to those who like the idea. Plus, if Paloni said that the rider will “suprise you yet not suprise you”, as I’ve read in other bulletins, then I think that pretty much rules her out. I was just guessing on the other stuff about the vault of souls and the menoa tree. Who knows what all that means. Anyway, run any other good ideas by me.

  306. Caylemister Says:

    Also, dose anyone think that this might be becomeing somewhat of a “cult book” like LOTR or Star Wars. It would not suprise me; it is good enough

  307. WishingAway Says:

    i agree with whoever said that the next rider should be female. It would be really unfair if all of the riders are male.

    I think there is a good chance that its Arya or Angela or the blessed girl (or cursed depending on how you look at it).

  308. Ahsan Gill Says:

    i got some info from a library for you guys

    Third book release date:may 2007 no later possibly earlier still pending

    Title: empire possibly its for sure 6 letters so it could also be called ending

    Cover: green dragon head turned to the right

  309. WishingAway Says:

    I saw the movie last week and i thought it was terrible!
    Saphira has FEATHERS! She’s supposed to have `bat-like wings`.
    They cut out about four or five characters and the whole incident with Joed.
    Isidar Mithrim wasn’t in the movie at all and was that short person with the beard supposed to be Orik?
    I thought Brom had white hair and Roran looked more like Eragon than Murtagh did.
    The “Angela Prophesy” sounded different as well.
    And Eragon was 17 instead of 15.
    The whole movie nearly made me die from dissaspointment.
    But I have to say, if I hadnt read the book before i saw the movie, i probably would’ve thought the movie was good. I would give the movie 1/2 star.

    And I am also wondering, would authors visit discussion forum thingys like this one? I mean they could and they could just give away hints and stuff. But i dont think thats very likely anyway, I was just wondering. I have my suspisions…

  310. shvang Says:

    dani: what happened you said you would give me a more perfect ans than i gave you so speak up man

  311. WishingAway Says:

    dani: I wanna know too. Can you really give us a perfect answer? -_^

  312. shvang Says:

    wishingaway:i meant that i gave an absouletly pperfect answer but dani put up a bet that he would give a better answer

  313. shvang Says:

    Guys I JUST CAME UP WITH A GREAT POSSIBILITY NO ONE THOUGHT OF IF RORAN AND ERAGON FIND THE THIRD EGG AND SAVE KKAATTRRIINNAA THEN MAYBE KATRINA BECOMES THE NEXT RIDER !!! THIS WAY THE NEXT RIDER COULD BECOME A GIRL(I DONT MEAN TO BE RUDE) AND AS SOMEONE SAID ABOVE KATRINA COULD BE KING PALANCAR’S DECENDANT OR MAYBE KATRINA’S DRAGON COULD BE A FEMALE AND THORN FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE NEW DRAGON this is just a thought though it has barely got1% chance

  314. berowl Says:

    feanor_03:
    Thanks a lot, and I too read all comments ^^ (eyes burning everynight)…

    The theory about Katrina is great. I mean as Eragon will be with her, if she becomes a rider he could teach her. And even if she was somekind of weak before, she could have change and gained power along with the raza’k tortures or something. She could be very powerfull, and they use some kind of magic, she could also have some by trying to resist them. I mean that could make sense. Great…
    But again she’ll have to learn quickly.
    And the idea about a character finding or steeling the last egg and just showing him/herself at the end for the last battle is quite improbable I think.

    Also, for everyone, when I read your comments about this site, it gives me the impression you think this all of my site but it’s not. This is a part of it. Your welcome to visit it and comment elsewhere at : http://www.littledailyprophet.wordpress.com ^^

  315. berowl Says:

    I think the new dragon will be and male and will mate with Saphira.

  316. shvang Says:

    hi is anyone there

  317. shvang Says:

    324 comments wow

  318. berowl Says:

    Earlier someone said Nasuada will change. That’s good for the plot as she is the leader of the varden (if this theory is right) but I wondered how. Yes there’s Murtagh, but can love make Nasuada change her mind this way? I mean she has been raised and educated in the good path since ever. That’s why I think there’s something else that will guide her to a different way, or even force her to change. This is also why Nasuada can’t be the next rider too, I think the next rider will be in Eragon’s side. May be Murtagh wil play with her feelings, like Morzan with Selena_ father and son alike. I think he will return to see Nasuada if he had noticed her feelings to convince her and to make her take decisions for the varden in order to not disturb the Empire, or even to help the Empire. Don’t know what to think about Nasuada. She was great in the 2nd book. But if this turn over happens it will make sense as at the beginning she had to prouve herself, then she had to lead the varden, and finally, she betrays it. Sounds great.
    But what about Eragon’s loyalty to her?!

    Also it would be great for Katrina to be the next rider so Eragon, roran and Katrina could fly above Alagaesia to travel, it will be easier. Eragon the movie comes out tomorow here, can’t wait!!!

  319. berowl Says:

    I remember something about Saphira swearing she will kill Nasuada herself if she (Nasuada) will dissappoint her… or something like that…

  320. Eragon29 Says:

    Great theory shvang, I never thought about it. Berowl, Saphira said that she wasn’t bound by Eragon’s oath of fealty, so as an individual she could “kidnap” Eragon and Eragon couldn’t be blamed.

    If Katrina becomes the new rider, Roran could fight alongside her on the emerald dragon. wouldn’t it be awesome?

  321. Eragon29 Says:

    Pheonix, I have read Twighlite , In fact i read it just the other day and i still have it checked out from the school library. Is anyone else on?

  322. berowl Says:

    Yeah that’s ittttt!!! lol Thanks Eragon29, I couldn’t remind me what she said^^. And yes Katrina and Roran on the same dragon would be great.

  323. berowl Says:

    whoever is the dragon-rider. Even if I’d rather like Katrina. And by the way , the more I think of it, the more I’m beginning to think that Katrina will be the next rider…

  324. Eragon29 Says:

    Yeah berowl so am i
    I mean, she is roran’s betrothed so when they marry each other, she will be Eragon’s sister-in-law. Isn’t that a weird thing to think about?

  325. Eragon29 Says:

    I wonder if maybe an Urgal could be a dragon rider? I mean it doesn’t seem likely but it might happen. No, the Urgals weren’t friends with the Varden in the first book and Paolini said he gave hints to the next dragon rider in the first and second books. So that couldn’t happen. (maybe when there are more dragon riders they will include Urgals and dwarves in the creatures that can become dragon riders). Whadda ya think?

  326. Eragon29 Says:

    I can never catch anyone on this dang site. when i am here no one else is. gawsh.

  327. Lizzy Says:

    I think that it’s very likely that Arya will be the next Rider, with her green magic and all. But I also think that Roran could be the next rider, though I’d rather have Arya be it. I also want Arya and Eragon to build their relationship together, I think it might work out, but it might not work out. There are so many other things I want or don’t want to happen too. I really don’t want Eragon to die, but I do want him to fight a REALLY hard battle. Then I want Eragon to cure Elva (I’m pretty sure he will but just in case), and I sort of want him to leave Alagaesia, but with Arya. That’s pretty much what I want in the 3rd book and I hope it will be as good or better than the first two books!! ^^;

  328. Phoenix Says:

    Hey i thought of Katrina too but i guess i put it too the side but with wut u guys said i could see it happen and whoever it was that said that Murtaugh might use love to trick her like Morzan did to Selena i just wonder how Murtaugh could even get to her but you know something has to happen with the 2 of them and rite now that makes the most sense of course im still routing for Murtaugh to forget his ooaths and join the Varden once again even if he does die trying Oh and Eragon29 if you’ve read Twilight you should read the sequel New Moon even though its not quite as good but still pretty good

  329. Darin Says:

    Oh my god to many comments too read the last dragon has to male because murtag said that saphire could be the mother of her race

  330. Dani Says:

    shvang= first of all im a GIRL!! when you spell dani with an i, its female, when you spell it ending with ny, like danny, its dude. And the answer to the menoa thing its more a theroy, but its sorta kinda not likely, yeah. i tend to lie on the internet. If ya want ta read it i can still type it.
    Also, the thing about katrina becoming a rider would be like super cool, and like, possible! I think that it would be cool, but it might not happen. SO MANY IDEAS!
    I think that if Paloni read this site, he would run away CRYING!!!

  331. Dani Says:

    Besides the last dragon has to be male, murtagh said so. but does anyone think that gal might not have stolen/destroyed all the eggs?
    IS ANYONE ON IM SO BORED!!!!!!!!!

  332. Phoenix Says:

    hey you mite be trite there could be some loose eggs out there somewhere maybe thats how the Varden get an eggand yea i was wondering whether or not Paolini ever looked at any of sites like these but then i thought he probably doesnt b/c he get thrown from soo many ideas and like Dani said he mite would run away crying

  333. Phoenix Says:

    Dude is ANYONE on?

  334. Phoenix Says:

    Even though noones on im putting this up before i forget earlier someone mentioned that Murtaugh mite play with Nasuadas feeling to trick her and i agreed but what if Nasauda plays with hos feelings so that he’ll come back and maybe breaks his oaths and risks his life for her wouldnt that be the ultimate twistit probably wont happen but there is a small possibilitythey both like each other or liked each other but still either one of them could use it to their advantage

  335. caylemister Says:

    Who ever thought up the whole Katrina thing is a freakin genius. Never saw it coming. I like that idea better than any other I have heard. Roran and Katrina fighting from the same Dragon. The combat capabilities are endless. Now I will be pissed if that doesn’t happen. It probly won’t though so I should get over it. Go idea though.

  336. Luke Says:

    I rekon that the new dragon rider will be either arya or Nasuada, because CP has said her position of power will change, i also think arya will be it but only because shes coool:), But CP has also said even thou ergons magic might be blue he could make red fire if he wanted, so just because arya has green magic doesn’t me she’ll be the next rider but i still hope she will be

  337. Eragon29 Says:

    Hey just checkin’ in. Ummm I think i will read new moon Pheonix thanx for the tip. and shvang thought up the katrina thing bye

  338. cool2morrow Says:

    HI guys i think all of your ideas are valid….. to an extent atleast. i beleive the whole new rider being new char is highly unlikely, also the idea that it is broms sword under the tree VERY unlikely seeings as he beegged the lady whom made the swords 2 make him another 1…….. the only way i c around this is if he fiinds it broken and has 2 get her 2 mend it……..NO the better way around it would be that instead of broms sword there was…………………. sorry have 2 make u wait for it because i thought this was such a good idea (let me no if u agree) i think its the first riders (eragon) sword that way it will hold HUGE sentimental value for the elves and riders alike also has anyone noticed it never states what the first dr ‘s dragons color was Just wondering well reply soon so i can c if u guys agree

    Greetings from AUSTRALIA

  339. cool2morrow Says:

    also now i am no expert on the mater of this series but i do have experience within the novel writing world, limited as it is. now for the staement made by some of u about the startling similarities between eragon and STAR WARS i can say from my own writting that coming up with new ideas is hard and i comend the author on their unique story , yes i say unique the similarities are really only superficial character molds (make brom obi-wan, eragon luke, murtagh anakin, gal the emporer (maybe even a little darth vader i gues) oromis yuda and etc) however as with all writting the *new* ideas are the hardest i mean did anybody else truly appreciate the discription that the author gave magic?

    once u have new ideas it is *easy* to elaborate uponn them.. for example all of u have come up with *plot* ideas that would still make an interesting novel with its twists and turns. However what i ask u all is that would u rather a novel that plays to ur expectations or would u rather that the author makes some statments to *misdirect* u so that when u read the 3rd book u come across scenarios that u hadn’t even conceived.

    as an author (again not a very good 1) i beleive that is my biggest challange is creating plot twist that are unexpected but still plausable. I commend the author on his ability to do that and i am sure u will agree….. as i am sure u would not have read it and thought otherwise. i would NOT say that he has *stolen* ideas from gorge lucas but merely had valuses and atitudes that were formed upon them because he was brought up on them (star wars that is)

    now i have some thought s to leave u with, twist of my own that i would *consider implementing* however i hope they are false so that i enjoy the read all the more

    eragon should not die but in some way be left *drained* beyond recovery ( maybe saphira could die) so that he can not be *whole* again as no hero should ever truly be

    the idea that he would *love* and noble woman and it being arya is probably right but it didn’t say it would end well or even that she would love him back so this part could already b forfilled ( i think someone has already stated this but i think its rather important)

    arya is the likly choice for the next dr and NO DWARF WILL EVER be a DR so alll dwarf suggestions are imo completly and utterly wronbg but hey i guess its worth a try.

    also there is as far as i acan tell no *proof* aragons mother is dead i mean we dont know for *sure*

    so here are my suggestions for next dr and yes i no some are stupid but u could b suprised

    saleana
    roran
    elva
    arya (ofcourse)
    katrina
    a decendent of vreal (unlikely i no)

    I apologise for the length and i am sorry its so lengthy also instead of in my earlier post about it being the first dr s sword it could even b Vreals 1 (also unlikely i no )

    a decendant of vreal

  340. cool2morrow Says:

    I AM SO SORRY ABOUT LENGTH

    There are way to many things to read: ( lots of people have joined… this site is getting kinda crowded. Oh well.

  343. cool2morrow Says:

    hi guys i just had some thought s about other possible titles if ir follows th e pattern (now i have just listed some u can always add others and i have not included empire because evry1 has said that) k here it goes

    elfish, elixir, embark, elvish, emblem, emerge, endure, engage, enigma, enmity, enrage, escape, exiled, exiles

    now these are only the ones that i thought made more sense feel free 2 post more also u can always get me on

    FIRST OF ALL I THANK YOU FOR THE PRAISE OF MY IDEA ABOUT KATRINA!!!!!!!!!!!!

  345. shvang Says:

    cool2morrow:the first dragon(bid’daum’s)colour was white i read so somewhere and i am sure. selena cannot be the next rider because she is dead.. even i have written a few books myself.

    Dani:I AM VERY SORRY ABOUT THE GENDER MISTAKE! but you have still avoided the question. i gave you according to me an absouloutely perfect answer but you said you’ll give a better come on come on

  346. cool2morrow Says:

    thnx shvang i was not sure cos i no longer have the books, must of missed the dragon colour still i like that sword suggestion more than broms as it makes more sense 2 me

    Yea i think i remember reading somewhere to that the first dragon was white but i dont remember its name and like i said before i like Shvangs idea about Katrina to it makes sense and cool2morrow the whole Star Wars thing i totally agree except Murtaugh was Anakin but hes like Darth Vador and if there is a similiarity between the 2 which we know there is maybe Paolini will bring Murtaugh aka Darth Vador back to the good side and help Eragon that would be awesome cuz even though Murtaugh went bad hes still my fav character and i think it would be awesome if the original good people could end the war and be together you know Arya and Eragon(hopefully and Murtaugh and Nasuada (huge hope!!!)

  348. Phoenix Says:

    Also if you go on Answers.com about all the book and characters in the Inheritance trilogy it tells you that Murtauh is the most controversial characters and he mite find his way again in the last book
    Oh and about the movie something i noticed they had Arya practically flirting with Eragon and in the book didnt Eragon say that after seeing Arya he thought that elves mut not laugh or smile and also in the bok they made Murtaugh very serious you know always prepared and obviously troubled but in the movie they made him seem like a happy go lucky teenagerthat ticked me off a little

  349. nadia Says:

    arya is saphiras egg carrier, it didnt have to hatch for her, besides saphiras says that she hatch for eragon because she knew that he was supposed to be her rider, so it didnt hatch for her cause maybe that wasnt the egg she was supposed to make hatch( if she is the next dragon rider)

  350. Phoenix Says:

    You make a good point there one of the other eggs could be waiting for herbut i’m still nnot dure shes the next rider for some reason it wouldnt make sense to me i dont know

  351. Eragon29 Says:

    Yeah, Arya carried Saphira’s egg for years. But even so, Saphira didn’t hatch for Arya because she was destined to hatch for Eragon. So the next dragon might indeed be for Arya. Has anyone thought about whether Arya might go bad, because I think that would make for an interesting twist in the story, but i don’t know how Paolini will accomplish it. Talk later,(tommorrow) bye

  352. Eragon29 Says:

    If anyone wants to talk to me more , contact me on my email
    destiny_duelist_02@yahoo.com . but tell me if you are from this site in the title!(so i don’t delete it)

  353. Phoenix Says:

    i highly doubt Arya will go bad b/c that would just ruin the book but of course you never know it could happen and i agree i dont see how Paolini could do it fit it all in in one book theres just too much to write about

  354. cool2morrow Says:

    hmmm good points
    i dont know about the rest of u but i actually hope the next dr is not arya.
    u can’t have 2 much riding on the one character (my opinion and as such not fact)

    any other ideas other than mine about possible tittles or is every1 resigned 2 the fact of it being *empire* (personally i thought some of my suggestions would make adequate tiltles asqell)

    also pheonix
    ur seggestion about murtagh helping is what every body expects (atleast from what i hear)
    i oersonally think it would b slightly better if he didn’t and had to tragicaly fight the varden in an *epic battle where empire soldiers and varden + elves are fighting just outside the capital while the 2 good riders (eragon and ******) sneak into the castle and confront gal (u no 2 on 1) and once they defeat gal he takes over the new rider (his consciousness does) and eragon battles the new rider already in a weakend state he calls upon all the power he can muster (maybe from enemy soldies whateva) and obliterates them. murtagh is now free. Victory

    thorn and saphira mate
    martagh and eragon setup a training for new dr
    they venture over the seas in order 2 find the place where humans came from also hoping 2 find more dragons

    This is a very rough idea and i will remind u its very early here and i have not thought it out but as far as unexpected goes this has somethings u wouldn’t b counting on

    again this is not what i think will happen merely me showing u what i meant about hoping that the book does not fit the mold that everybody has created for it and has some new twists

    hi people chums if you want to know,ask,tell me anything you can e mail me at shivang_thegg@yahoo.co.in

  362. ruella Says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of posts! And yes, I just finished reading all of them.

    One thing I’m confused about – if we presume that it’ll be called “Empire”, does that mean that the Empire (and therefore Galbatorix) will prevail? I think that’s highly unlikely, but a thought nonetheless. I’m just drawing on the literal nature of titles (eg. LOTR’s Return of the King kind of gave away the ending…).

    My predictions (in no particular order):
    1) Nasuada will die in battle.
    2) Murtagh will also die in battle, possibly after trying to save Nasuada’s life (perhaps he will die because he broke his oath).
    3) Elva will die by saving someone. Not sure who.
    4) Eragon will survive, but victory will come at a great cost. I think he’ll end up somewhat like Oromis, which might be why he’ll be forced to leave Alagaesia.
    5) Roran will also survive, and after the victory of the Varden and the death of Nasuada, may become king of Alagaesia. Who knows, maybe Garrow is a decendant of King Palancar. Katrina will also survive, but I’m not sure if she’ll play a major part apart from being saved.
    6) I’m convinced that Brom is Eragon’s father. It makes perfect sense. Brom lived conveniently in Carvahall, and he knew Selena “well enough to miss her when she was gone”. Also, I believe Morzan was responsible for Selena’s death, and this would have provided Brom the fuel to kill Morzan, the only task in which he fully succeeded in, according to Angela.
    7) Hence, I think the weapon Eragon will find under the roots of the Menoa tree will be Brom’s lost sword, which is blue (Brom’s dragon was named Saphira)
    8) I really liked the theory that the Rock of Kuthien/Vault of Souls is located in Helgrind (see http://www.shurtugal.com/?id=trilogy/book3/theories). It makes perfect sense. However, I don’t think the third dragon egg is located there.

    9)As for the next dragon rider – the possibilities are endless!! Arya seems the most likely candidate, and she’d certainly be the most efficient new dragon rider, but to me this seems too obvious a choice. I don’t think Roran or Katrina will be, because of my other predictions for them =P. My money’s on Orik – there’s never been a dwarf dragon rider, and it would be the perfect opportunity to mend the relationship between dragons and dwarves. I’d also love to see an Urgal rider but I doubt that would ever, ever, ever happen. If not Orik, then possibly Vanir, but I don’t think he’s a significant enough character. I don’t think it’ll be Angela because this is a coming of age story, about the next generation, and Angela is of generations past. I also don’t think she’s a previous dragon rider – frankly she’s too strange.
    I don’t know if the movie is a reflection of the trilogy’s ending, but I assume the next dragon rider will have had to be a character in Eragon the movie. This rules out Elva, Katrina, Angela (her character was desecrated!), and possibly Orik…but based on this theory, Roran would be the most likely character. However i’d be disappointed if this happened, because the new race of dragon riders would be so unbalanced.

    And yes, I’ve noticed the quite significant LOTR similarities as well – especially the names and places! Ps. Someone was asking who Arya was similar to – the person (or elf, rather) you’re looking for is Arwen.

    Sorry for the long post! I’ve just been reading a lot of theories and have been dying to write my own somewhere!

  363. Phoenix Says:

    cool2morrow you mite be write about Murtaugh staying on the “Dark Side” but if it is based on Star Wars and LOTR then you’ll remember Darth Vador (Anakin) did fight a long hard battle but still back to th good sideat the very end but he also died doing itand in LOTR lets admit Frodo went a little crazy but once again went back to the good side soo im hoping Murtaugh will be the same way but more on the side of Frodo though b/c i dont want Murtaugh to die
    and an dwarf cant be the next rider b/c they werent included in the oath or pact i cant member the word but they werent incuded in it it was only elves and humans and even if they included them in the third book its already told in the 1st and 2nd books that dwarves dont like dragons and Orik didnt even like it when he was up there that rules out Urgals too and i still think Katrina could be the next rider and i dont want Roran to bo the next rider basically b/c he was never my fav character but i suppose it could still happen as well and i think Arya’s still a to obvious choice but i also think it will be female b/c tht would even things out a little more

I don’t know if its a cool idea but if she runs the Varden she is some one of royalty. And I also think that maybe Eragon My fall In love with Nasuada. And that Nasuada becomes the next rider. I’m just throughing out ideas seeing what you guys think.

  372. Eragon29 Says:

    Here is most of the poems that are out of the Eldest book, I would write some down out of Eragon, but someone is borrowing that one. When it says *(paragraph)* that means that there was a paragraph between those two sections of the poems.

    Eldest pg.545

    By beak and bone,
    Mine blackened stone
    Sees rooks and crooks
    And bloody brooks!

    By Bladgen
    (Bird)

    Eldest pg.546

    While two may share two,
    And one of two is certainly one,
    One might be two.

    By Bladgen
    (Bird)

    Eldest pg.147

    Down the rushing mere-wash
    Of Kilf’s welling blood,
    We ride the twisting timbers,
    For hearth, clan, and honor.

    Under the ernes’ sky-vat,
    Through the ice-wolves’ forest bowls,
    We ride the gory wood,
    For iron, gold, and diamond,

    Let hand-ringer and bearded gaper fill my grip
    And battle-leaf guard my stone
    As I leave the halls of my fathers
    For the empty land beyond.

    By Ekksvar
    (Dwarf)

    Eldest pg.168-169

    O!

    The day is done; the stars are bright;
    The leaves are still; the moon is white!
    Laugh at woe and laugh at foe,
    Menoa’s scion now is safe this night!

    A forest child we lost to strife;
    A sylvan daughter caught by life!
    Freed of fear and freed of flame,
    She tore a Rider from the shadows rife!

    Again the dragons rise on wing,
    And we avenger their suffering!
    Strong of blade and strong of arm,
    The time is ripe for us to kill the king!

    O!

    The wind is soft; the river deep;
    The trees are tall; the birds do sleep!
    Laugh at woe and laugh at foe,
    The hour has arrived for joy to reap!

    By Nari
    (Elf)

    Eldest pg.452-453

    Under the moon, the bright white moon,
    Lies a pool, a flat silver pool,
    Among the brakes and brambles,
    And black-heart pines.

    Falls a stone, a living stone,
    Cracks the moon, the bright white moon,
    Among the brakes and brambles,
    And black-heart pines.

    Shards of light, swords of light,
    Ripple ‘cross the pool,
    The quiet mere, the still tarn,
    The lonely lake there.

    In the night, the dark and heavy night,
    Flutter shadows, confused shadows,
    Where once…

    By Arya
    (Elf)(Unfinished)

    Eldest pg.460

    Away, away, you shall fly away,
    O’er the peaks and vales
    To the lands beyond.
    Away, away, you shall fly away,
    And never return to me.

    Gone! Gone you shall be from me,
    And I will never see you again.
    Gone! Gone you shall be from me,
    Though I wait for you evermore.

    By Unknown Author
    (Elf)

    Eldest pg.462-465

    In the kingdom by the sea,
    In the mountains mantled blue,
    On frigid winter’s final dayy
    Was born a man with but one task:

    To kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Nurtured by the kind and wise
    Under oaks as old as time,
    He ran with deer and wrestled bears,
    And from his elders learned the skills,

    To kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Taught to spy the thief in black
    When he grabs the weak and strong;
    To block his blows and fight the fiend
    With rag and raock and plant and bone;

    And kill the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Quick as thought, the years did turn,
    ‘Til the man had come of age,
    His body burned with fevered rage,
    While youth’s impatience seared his veins.

    Then he met a maiden fair,
    Who was tall and strong and wise,
    Her brow adorned with Geda’s Light,
    Which shone upon her trailing gown.

    In her eyes of midnight blue,
    In those enigmatic pools,
    Appeared to him a future bright,
    Together, where they would not have

    To fear the foe in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    (Paragraph)

    In the dark before the dawn,
    In the room where slept the man,
    The foe, he crept and loomed above
    His mighty rival now so weak.

    From his pillow did the man
    Raise his head and gaze uupon
    The cold and empty face of Death,
    The king of everlasting night.

    Calm acceptance filled the man’s
    Aged heart; for long ago,
    He’d losta ll fear of Death’s embrace,
    The last embrace a man will know.

    Gentle as a morning breeze,
    Bent the foe and from the man
    His glowing, pulsing spirit took,
    And thence in peace they went to dwell,

    Forevermore in Durza,
    In the land of shadows.

    Enjoy! hope you like all of them. It is very long. srry.

    Will check in tomorrow

  374. Phoenix Says:

    Hey if Eragon fell in love with Nasuada then that would be the ultimate betrayal to Murtaugh by them and yes i know he betrayed them but i think we all know that both of them hope he joins them againand that mite make Murtaugh all the more mad and stray farther down the pah of darkness and that could prove very bad for the Varden Even if the rider joins the Varden you just cant screw with a guy whos been hurt by love soo i dont see that happening of course i have been proved wrong before

  375. berowl Says:

    ATTENTION, for those who haven’t seen the movie yet, this post might reveal you most of the film. Last night, I’ve seen Eragon with my friends and I think the movie is worth seeing it.

    The Characters:

    I liked Eragon very much, he’s young, always want to go ahead even if he’s not ready and he’s a good actor especially in the “I’m learning to be a dragon rider” scenes. Roran is great, he has a real complicity with Eragon and that’s good, but he leaves their house very quickly and for the reason Galbatorix’s armies are recruiting, which is absolutely not for the reason he loves and Katrina and want to work before he propose her. I liked Garrow and his simplicity, and I also liked his death, which is quite different from the book. I loved Galbatorix who is played wonderfully, I liked his seek for power and his madness. I liked Durza but only at the end of the movie when he fights Eragon, at the beginning of the movie he seems weak, useless, human… Brom is great. Razaks are good, their very different from the book as they are summoned in the film but it makes sense. Arya was a bit disappointment, I only liked her eyes… Ajihad is really good even for his small part, as is Murtagh. Nasuada, Orik (who is not even named or presented), and Angela are the worst. I LOVED SAPHIRA, as a baby she is really cute and lovely, as an adult she’s strong, majestic and beautiful.

    The movie itself:

    I liked the very beginning of the film when we see dragon riders and dragons fighting, it is just beautiful and really intense. I liked very much Eragon’s village and even Galbatorix men’s presence. It explains Roran departure which I didn’t quite like but it makes sense in the context so it’s ok. I LOVED ALL Saphira’s scenes. They must have put a lot of money in her… I liked her voice and telepathy with Eragon, I liked how she grows (by magic). I loved the flying scene where Eragon can’t grip on Saphira, even if his legs aren’t riped. But I really disliked some mistakes from Brom like “Call her” as he can’t know her gender. I quite liked Eragon and Brom scenes but I felt the absence of training and camp fire scenes. I was disappointed by Urgals who seem to be rude brutes and that’s all. I imagined them more organised, and more skilled. Durza at the beginning of the film seems to be a coward and at the king service, but in the book it’s quite the opposite, it’s Durza who convince Galbatorix to do things not the opposite. I didn’t like all Arya’s bodyguards. I didn’t like scenes where Murtagh follows Eragon. But I do liked Murtagh himself, he has a little part but he plays it well, especially when he talks about his father Morzan (he plays well too in “Troy”). I hated the absolute absence of real dwarfs, I hate Angela who has a little house in a little village who makes little prophecies with little dragon phalanges. I hated the absence of Solenmblum. I loved Eragon’s magic and the respect for all ancient language’s words. I did’nt like the way Arya is imprisoned, and how Eragon saves her. I liked very much Brom’s tomb made by Saphira and the scene where we see Brom dying of Saphira’s back. I loved all the fighting scene between Durza and Eragon, I really liked Durza’s sword too. I loved Durza saying: “You will taste the blood of your dragon!!!”. I really hated must of all costumes, the Varden’s, the false dwarfs’, the Urgals’, Angela’s and Arya’s bodyguards’.

    In conclusion:

    I liked the film very much in general, it’s great. The few stuff I disliked was balanced by excellent scenes and landscapes.

    That is why I rate it: 3/5.

    Okay, the theory is this, that he already recived the gift. Ya know, at the blood oath ceromony, transformation. That will help him defeat the empire.

  382. Emmy Says:

    What Gift????

  383. Emmy Says:

    Back to the subject of the name of the third book, I rekon it’s either EMPIRE or ENDING because they both fit the requirements that PAOLINI’S fans have created. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  384. Eric Says:

    I belive that even though no one has probably even thought of it, maybe the next rider could be Nolfavrell for he has proven himself in battle at carvahall by killing a man.Also Paoloni says that there are many hints in both Eragon and Eldest about who the next rider will be. Any one thought of the slight chance of having a werecat as a rider. Solombom sounds like he is vicious

  385. Jacobo Says:

    I don’t think Roran is going to be the next rider because he it isn’t in his blood like with eragon and murtagh.

  386. Rishab Godara Says:

    I think that brom will be the father of Eragon as Brom once mentioned to eragon that he knew Eragon,s mother so nicely that he missed her after she was gone.And even angla the witch told eragon that brom loved a women and got her in troble.

  387. shvang Says:

    maybe morzan killed selena because he knew she had an affair with brom?
    there could be some reason why a normal human(ajihad)was to fight and nearly beat durza. there will be some secret about ajihad

  388. shvang Says:

    i meant in the letter before the last2 ones that even when eragon was a rider durza nearely slaughtered him then how come ajihad not being a rider have nearly pulled durza’s heart out

  389. Phoenix Says:

    Good point shvang maybe Eragon’s not as strong as we think we is n fact several times in the book i thought he mite be a little too confident he still has much to learn and maybe thats another reason why Murtaugh was stronger he was focussed and determined to be strong and didnt spend time fooling around with ove even though he was in fact very into Nasuada i guess we’ll find out in the second book exactly who will be stronger

  390. Dani Says:

    Eragon is still young and has much to learn. While Murtagh is focusing on war-like magic, swordmanship, and battle stratigie, Eragon is learning that stuff and history, peacefull magic, and other kinds of stuff, which is nessasary to be a full rider. Therefore Murtagh as an advantage in battle, but somehow I hope Eragon can win. I mean, that would totaly suck if eragon dies, or fles across the sea, or gets captured by Gal. i also hope that murtagh turns good, cuz it would equally if he dies.

    Se onr sverdar sitja hvass!!!!!!!!

  392. EragonFan Says:

    Berowl, everything you said about the movie is basically what I thought about it. And did you read about what I thought about Eragon and Nasuada? Just wondering, wanted to see what you thought. Anyways back to the movie, I actually give it a 4/5. I REALLY liked Saphira, and Eragon. I didn’t like how Roran actually looked like he could be Eragon’s brother. My mom thought they were brothers! I hated the absence of the Twins and Solembum and Orik. I actually like those characters! And if they plan to make a second movie they have alot of thinking to do, right? Well, shoot, I have to go! Se onr sverdar sitja hvass! (May your swords stay sharp!)

  393. Phoenix Says:

    EragonFan they’re already makin a second film and we’ve said before that we have no idea how they’re going to do it but the actors said in an interview that they’ve all signed contracts and are currently shooting in Morroco and i gave the movie 3 stars b/c i think they ruined Arya’s and Murtaughs parts b/c ion the books in made them out as serious characters and in the movie it had them to where they looked like happy go lucky teenagers they even had Arya flirting and that fact i just found ghastly but otherwise i thought it was amazing and i liked the people they chose to play the parts except for Angela they made her to out there i dont know she just didnt remind me at all of the Angewla in the book

  394. nadia Says:

    i actually dont mind the girl who plays arya, it is pretty weird that she flirts with him so much, seeing she supposedly says she dosent like him, but at the same time is very cute:)

  395. nadia Says:

    I CANNOT BELIVE THAT THEY DIDNT SHOW SOLEMUMB( DONT KNOW HOW TO WRITE HIS NAME), I REALLY LIKE THE CHARACTER, AND WHY DO THE RAZAC DIE IN THE FIRST MOVIE!!!! THAT DOSENT HAPPEN!!!WHAT IF THEY COME BACK IN THE THIRD BOOK, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO MAKE THEM REAPPEAR FROM THE TOMB!!!!, but other than that i think the movie was good.

  396. ruella Says:

    yeah, i was incredibly disappointed with the movie. even if i hadn’t read the book (i saw it with friends who hadn’t), the dialogue is stilted and fake, and everything moved too quickly with little explanation. plus the characters (apart from being desecrated! [eg. angela, arya]) weren’t believable enough. AND they completely misinterpreted the relationship between rider and dragon, making the rider out to be the superior party, even though the bond is purely equal. in short, i thought it was shite.

    also, i made quite a long comment here a few days ago, about who i think the next rider will be…what happened to it?

  397. berowl Says:

    EragonFan
    yeah, Saphira really is great, she saves the movie. And I agree with what have been said before, the relationship between Eragon and Saphira isn’t quite defined. I also enjoyed the fact that DURZA DOES MAKE A SCAR TO ERAGON ON HIS BACK. It’s fast but I’ve seen it, some may have not noticed because there’s no scar burning scene. It reminds me that I disliked the last scene with Eragon, Murtagh and Saphira, after the Battle when Eragon asks Murtagh if Saphira is ok… well he just had to contact her…
    For your theory about Eragon and Nasuada, it’s a good one but Paolini have quite already made the point that Eragon is in love with arya and not nasuada (who might love Murtagh) but this can happen, but I believe Nasuada will not be the next rider.

  398. The Were-Cat Says:

    How can nasuada like Murtagh? I reread both books and didn’t get any hints of that. Or is it a Theory? And why don’t you believe Nasuada is the next rider? Like EragonFan says she is kind of royal. And that the author said the next rider is someone in both books. It probaly can’t be Arya, because if the dragons like eachother the riders would have to like the other rider. and viseversa. And Arya said she doesn’t want Eragon to like her because of their age difference. So she could or or couldn’t be the next rider. And is Saphira liked Thorn that would mean something not right between Eragon and Murtagh. And i also like the theory of Brom being Eragon’s dad. That would be cool if it were true. And I have a theory of my own….but I’d rather keep it to myself. Anyways I agree, kind of, with EragonFan…. Well, I have to go. See ya.

  399. berowl Says:

    I believe you don’t mean the next rider has to be of noble blood, I explain, Eragon’s love (noble blood woman) and the next rider can be two different people. As For Nasuada and Murtagh, well she’s the only one with Eragon to visit him in the Varden (again in the movie what a poor cage they have build for him…). And as I said before IF is said IF Eragon falls in love with Nasuada this would mean that Paolini has to introduice their relation ship in the next book, knowing that Eragon will be with Roran saving Katrina, will be searching a new sword and fulfill the prophecy while Nasuada will be indoors in the Varden or worse, in Surda…
    So I think it’s quite improbable. But I may be wrong (won’t be the first time).^^

  400. berowl Says:

    I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT:
    I’ve been received in a nursery school in Paris after having finished at the 55th rank on 3500 people (the 768 firsts can enter a school).

  401. Phoenix Says:

    Good for you Berowl and i still am not quite sure who i think is the next rider but i dont think its Nasuada or Arya they both like i have said before have too much on their plates already but i do think it will be a girl and i have also stated in a comment above that it would just kinda of ruin half of the second book if Eragon liked Nasauda and i also said that would make Murtaugh mad b/c even if he didnt seem to share his cares in the second book feelings that just dont go away and that could prevent Murtaugh even considering to come back not that he will but still i just once again dont see it happening

  402. shadowhunter Says:

    ok guys i stumnled across ur site and read them all…. quite a feat in itself in my opinion first
    grats berowl
    k guys there are sooo many theories here and i am having a hard time deciding which 1’s i like best but i agree with some things
    I hope arya and roran are not the new rider
    I think cool2morrow had some good suggestions for alterative tittles tho some were a litle weird i especially liked EMERGE as it is the new rider who emerges from this book also the varden will b attcking more thus emerging from hiding tho i think the tittle is probably empire i hope it is not lol
    ALSO I HATED THE MOVIE as they desicrated so many parts of the book (dont get me started i have already sent hate mail.)
    l8rs

  403. berowl Says:

    Phoenix
    I agree with you of course, the new rider has to be one of the characters develloped in the 2nd book and we must that Roran is in top position in this case, and as a woman it will be Nasuada.
    But I don’t know, I can’t imagine any of them riding a dragon. (well Roran yes but not Nasuada). I think Nasuada like Arya have too much responsabilities and nothing particular. I mean she (Nasuada) hasn’t any particular predisposition, she only rule greatly. But when I think about Katrina, I see strengh and resistance against her father and then the Razacs. But she’s not devellopped at all in the 2nd book, nor in the first one. But she has her importance as SHE helps Eragon get food and so keep Saphira’s egg, and in the second book, SHE is the reason Roran wants to move away from their village. She is a key caracter even if she’s quite absent.
    As for the theory that only Eragon relatives become riders like Murtagh who seems to be now his half brother, I don’t quite believe in it even if this troubles me. In fact the only bloodline sure between Eragon and Murtagh is Selena. So how can we be sure she hasn’t any other children, and why Poalini would introduice them in the final book? It’s nonsense…

  404. nadia Says:

    Katrina cant possibly be the next rider, she might be the reason why roran goes away, alot of other things, but other than that she basicly not that important, she is roran love interest but that is it. Eragon and Nasuada cannot possibly fall in love, because i do think Nasuada likes Murtagh, Eragon has made it really clear that he likes Arya, he says he would do anything to get her to like him:)

  405. hgfilasbd Says:

    Earagon and Murtagh are FULL NOT HALF brothers. Selena was trying to protect Eragon from Morzan after she saw how Morzan had treated Murtagh. And I think the final rider could be either elven or human, as far as I care it could even be a dwarf or somebody that was never mentioned in the second book. It coyuld be an elf because so far we only have three humans (besides the cripple) but if an elf were to assist the Varden it would make Eragon look less important. Human … whatever … except than the elves would be disappointed. Roran? No i don’t really feel it.Arya? No, not feeling it. She’s powerful already without a dragon. But it would be so cute if Arya hooked up with Eragon and Saphira hooked up with Arya’s dragon. I’m not totally obsessed with this book like other people but this is my oppinion. And I just want everyone to know that I knew that Eragon and Murtagh were FULL brothers while reading the FIRST book. Christopher Paolini needs to work on his foreshadowing stuff. And about the movie. I never imagined Eragon blonde. Arya is supposed to havee raven colored hair. Instead they have some girl with a mixture of red and brown hair… what’s up with that? And why do they need Galbatorix they only ever mention him in both books. Murtagh looks evil on the poster… he’s not supposed to look evil … not until the second book.And Saphira… what happened to her? She’a supposed to have shiny, I said SHINY, blue scales. And what does she get, some grayish blue crappy color. I’m upset. But Galbatorix upsets me most, him being in the first movie gives me the whole bad guy from the power rangers kind of feeling.

  406. hgfilasbd Says:

    Oh and why can’t the move just be like the book… is it really that hard? Just take the story summarize some parts, completely take out others, BUT DON’T COMPLETELY CHANGE IT!!!!!!!!

  407. nadia Says:

    well, they didnt exactly change the movie, the parts re still there they mixed them up, what upset me the most is the way brom dies!!!!!!!and why is arya not unconcious like she is supposed to be, although i dont really mind that:)

  408. Phoenix Says:

    i agree about the movie and i still think it s possible that Katrina could be the next rider is but hgfilasbd i do know that whoever it is was mentioned in both book b/c the Paolini said the rider was and that he even left clues in booth book leading up to who it would be he said it would surprise and yet not surprise us and thats all any of us know for sure about the new rider but its still fun to guessand one of us has to be rite seeing as how we’ve guessed just about everyone in both books

  409. AD Says:

    daeth’s doorbel, ur stupid!!!!
    Saphira didnt hatch for Arya because she was destined to hatch for Eragon.

    Anyway, the next Rider WILL be a girl. The three choices are: Arya, Nausuda, or Katrina.
    And if Galbatorix is killed then Roran WILL be the new king.

    As for Murtagh, we will have to wait for the third book to find out whats in store for him.

  410. Phoenix Says:

    What makes you think that Roran will br the new king if Gal dies hes of no royal blood if Roran leads anything which i dont think he will it i think it would be the Varden and somrthing would have to happen to Nasuada first for that to happen and i really have no idea how he would become leader of the Empire

    about everything else though i believe ur rite about the rider and Murtaugh and Saphira as an egg but i dont think it will be Arya or Nasuada for reasons ive mentioned countless times before soo im routing for Katrina

    talk to you guys tomorrow maybe if not MERRY CHRISTMAS OR HANNAKAH OR KWANZA OR WHATEVER sorry about spelling

    Thanks for these 420 comments!!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS ^^

  413. nadia Says:

    Katrina will not be the next dragon rider, she might of have fought back, so what, thats not the point, and paolini says that he left clues in both book, she has no role in the first book, besides being roran love interest!!
    I doubt Nasuada will be the next dragon rider, so I think Arya will be, and it dosent matter that she is strong even without a dragon, because i am so very sure that the dragon riders who were elves had an advavtage to the ones who were human, if i am not mistaken the last eragon with the white dragon was an elf!!!!SO STOP SAYING SHE CANT BE THE DRAGON RIDER BECAUSE OF THAT!!!!

  414. nadia Says:

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!

  415. RANDOM Says:

    Okay, just a theory, but wouldn’t it be an odd twist if a dwarf was the next Dragon Rider? AKA, Orik?

    Really unlikely, but it’s a thought. It sounds to me like the kinda thing Paolini would do. The idea about Roran or katrina being the next DR are more likely though. However, I definately don’t think that Arya will be the DR, because everyone is expecting it.

    BTW, Merry XmAs

  416. RANDOM Says:

    Oh. And the movie was really bad too.

  417. RANDOM Says:

    Just had a thought,

    In Eldest, it said that Orik was the first Dwarf to ride a dragon. that even accounts more my thought that Orik wil be the DR. I mean, it has to count for something, right?

  418. berowl Says:

    Yeah that’s a clue but I don’t think he will… would be odd wouldn’t it?
    As for Arya, mind you, I never said she can’t be the next DR I thought first she had to, but I changed my mind and I’m now thinking Katrina will be the next rider. But it’s just a thought, a theory. Only Paolini knows what will happen, we can only try to guess;.. ^^

    Happy christmas again!!!

  419. Phoenix Says:

    I doubt it will be Orik b/c dwarves weren’t included in that pact or whatever it was that allowed you to be a dragon rider it was only btween elves and humans and i never said thatArya couldnt be the next rider b/c she was an elf i just dont see it happening b/cfirst shes old and dragons normally pick young riders, she is already strong, and everyones expecting it plus it mite bother with her and Eragon if they get together and she is of noble blood and she has to take over the throne if her mother dies and she has too mich on her hands but she could still in fact be the next rider i just dont see it happening

  420. nadia Says:

    i dont know if you remember but even if Arya is the heir to the throne does necessarily mean that she has to become queen, in the secon book she says that she dosent have to become quee if she dosent want to, because the elves will not pick a queen that dosent want to be a queen, so what if she strong? the elf riders were much more stronger than her i can assure you!

  421. Eragon29 Says:

    Has anyone thought about whether nasuada will become queen because she is leader of the varden. And another thing , If Gal is defeated, won’t the varden disband because they are there to defy Gal and nothing else I mean what would they do if Gal is defeated?

  422. Eragon29 Says:

    Has anyone thought about whether Arya will live even longer if she becomes a Rider?

  423. Eragon29 Says:

    Nevermind, In Eldest an elf specifies that they are immortal. Does anyone know how they became immortal.

  426. shvang Says:

    hey berowl i don’t understand what does that mean?
    your comment is awaiting moderation i did not type that?.

  427. shvang Says:

    eragon29 you say elves are immortal but than how come eragon (the1st) is not yet alive and how come in the first book those two elves die?????

  428. berowl Says:

    shvang
    I don’t know about awaiting moderation but it seems to me two comments were made in the same time or sthg. Nevermind I approved it… ^^

  429. Caden Says:

    ok sorry i havent been in the discussion as of late
    i finished rereading Eldest and Eragon

    so heres my 2 cents
    1 – the title is most definately goin to be empire…i really cannot think of anything else

    2 – about the royalty part, isnt nasuada royalty? i mean everyone is so focussed on Arya and thats probably what it is goin to turn out to be, but nasuada is royalty too….well kinda

    3 – i think that eragon might die in the last book….seeing as he is never goin to return to alagaesia, couldnt that be interperted as him dying?

    4 – roran wont be the rider and neither will orik….its down to venir, arya, and elva….she can grow and learn at an incredibly rapid pace, she taught herself, how to talk in a week, but maybe she could grow? she would be a very interesting rider seeing as she cant harm people but if eragon removes his curse then maybe…just a thought

  430. stylez Says:

    these things i am going to say are fact, spoiliers also so um yeah read at ur own caution

    1. Brom is Eragons father

    2. The next dragon is going to be wild

    3. Eragon and Arya end up getting together

    4. Murtagh gets power from the vault of souls if u look at the end of eldest when Eragon touches murtaghs mind he says it felt strange like it possesed many conscienses or w/e but yeah thats how he and Galby get there power and they get more souls thats how galby gains more power

    5. Orik becomes king of dwarves( if u dont believe me idc but its true) i have inside info 😛

  431. Eragon29 Says:

    shvang, you didn’t read Eldest completely and uterly.on pg.203, Eragon asks Lifaen “Are Elves Immortal”?.

    Lifaen replies”Once we were like you, bright, fleeting, and as empheral as the morning dew. Now our lives stretch endlessly through the dusty years. Aye, we are immortal, although we are still vulnerable to injuries to the flesh.”

    So Elves ARE Immortal. Check it yourself.

    Berowl, thanks for removing that extra comment. I really didn’t mean to do that.

    i also remember at the end of eldest
    nadia saying thats she felt bad that murtaugh was forced to serve galbortorix. this may have something to do with there feellungs for each other

  433. chris shade77 Says:

    yea one subject that is often ignored is that elva good become the rider she does have the mark of the rider on her forhead.

  434. chris shade77 Says:

    Finnaly i seriously doubt eragon will die at the of end of eldest murtaugh even says that galbaltorix knows he cannot kill him. though eragon may sacrafice himself instead of having to surrender to galbotorix.

  435. chris shade77 Says:

    i just saw eragon today overall it was pretty good but the one thing that dissapointed me was the dialougue and they sort of crammed events all together for instance eragon did not first use magic in terim but in the movie eragon is confrented by urgals right after a visit with angela wtf!!! he kills the urgals like the book said but it was prett weird
    oh well overall it was a pretty good movie a give it a b also eragon shoots durza in the head in the movie not murtaugh they didnt even boher will the hadarac desert and finnaly eragon does not even have his meeting with oromis at the end the book p s orick is hardly even given a tap on the shoulder they dont even accknowledge the fact that hes a dwarf!!!!!!!

  436. chris shade77 Says:

    oh well the book was so elobrate it would take 17 hours just to include evrything lol

  437. chris shade77 Says:

    oh yea and durza kills brom it was kind of a good idea but the only problem with that is that the razacc were not shown as much

  445. chickenman Says:

    i heard from a friend that in the movie that intead of a silver oval they put a dragon claw mark on his plam. so what i say is that all movie producers are on crack.

    so one message to the producers READTHE BOOK

    ps Dani wants to kow when the third book is coming out because so many dates have been said

  446. chickenman Says:

    i herd that instead of a silver oval erogon has a dragon claw mark around his thumb. i think that the movie producers .should grt off crack and read the book

  447. berowl Says:

    I feel like they asked children to summarise the book and there was their scrpit. Really, too many things out or created and too much ugly armors, thanksfully for this film, they put their all money in creating Saphira, who’s wonderfull.

  457. nadia Says:

    Eragon29 you are totally right about the elves, also i think that the relationship between Murtagh and Nasuada will be why they are not gonna want Nasuada as the leader anymore.

  458. heretic Says:

    A list of six letter words beginning with “E”: http://www.morewords.com/wordsbylength/6e/

    I would add on “Elvish” to this list. The ones that caught my attention were the variations on “Exile”. Ties in with the prophecy, no?

    Anyway, here are my other theories.

    Eragon is a half elf. His mother, Selenia, is actually Arya, who used magic to disguise herself as she infiltrated Galbatorix’s court. During Eragon’s transformation, it says something about him “becoming who he was meant to be”. This is a reference to this. Arya’s prolonged exposure to humans as well as the secrets about her the other elves won’t reveal make her the obvious choice. Of course, this means that Garrow lied to make it seem like “Selenia” was related to him, because he was an agent of the Varden, perhaps retired.

    Orik will become the next dwarf king, simply because we haven’t been introduced to any others. Nasuada will be unseated through infighting and Roran will either lead the Varden or splinter off with Nasuada’s loyalists. Oromis and Glaedr will be discovered through the memories of elves captured during the battles on the northern plains, but will die soon after of Oromis’ disability, partway through Eragon’s training in a very Yoda-ish manner.

    Eragon and Roran will kill the Ra’zac although afterwords, that one crazy woman fom Carvahall will try and kill Roran. I’m thinking that the Ra’zac are somehow created by Galbatorix from captured Riders and their dragons. After they kill the Ra’zac, Eragon will learn that he actually killed the twisted shell that was once Vrael, or someone equally revered.

    In the final battle between Galbatorix and Eragon, Eragon will magically sever the black magic that ties Shruikan to his master, and the dragon will kill the king himself.

    At the Vault of Souls, Eragon will speak his name and the spirit of the first rider, also Eragon, will appear and give him guidance, perhaps teaching him magicks long since forgotten. Eragon will use these to best Murtagh in combat, but will stop short of killing him, because of his pesky conscience.

    As to the next Rider, it will either be Roran, Nasuada or Arya. None of the other characters are developed enough. I doubt it will be Nasuada because she has too many duties to be exposed to the egg until the end of the book, and then we would have a tiny hatchling and an untrained Rider, not much of a story. I think Roran and Arya have an equal chance of becoming the next Rider, although I dislike either of them becoming one equally. I hope Paolini outfoxes me and I am wrong.

  459. Eragon29 Says:

    First off, to discourage your ” Eragon is a half elf ” theory. If Eragon was half elf, he would have been born with some elven features. He would also be at least twice as strong as his brother roran. I am sure he wasn’t until the Agaeti Blodhren because Roran clearly thought he could put Eragon in pain for garrow’s death .

    Secondly, Oromis tells Eragon that the ra’zac came from whatever land Eragon’s ancestors abandoned.

    Third. Orik WILL become the next dwarf king because he is Hrothgar’s adoptive son!

    Fourth, Selena was a Human! She wasn’t an elf. So she couldn’t be Arya.

    That is all I have to say on the matter

  460. phil Says:

    i think that eragon and galbatorix are both going to kill each other and when eragon forsees that he will leave alagaisia forever it will be him going into the void.

  461. phil Says:

    and also i think that roran will be killedwhile helping eragon, orik and aryr steel the green dragons egg that will hatch for either arya or vanir.

  462. phil Says:

    the third book will be titled “escape”for when roran dies trying to rscue the egg.

  463. phil Says:

    The True Identity of Eragon’s Father

    Hear me out on this one. A lot of you are screaming one very misinformed and meaningless thing right now: “Murtagh said that Morzan was his father in the ancient language, and since you can’t lie in the ancient language, Morzan must be his father!” However, this is not at all true, and in reality Morzan is not Eragon’s father. It is Brom.

    First, you must understand that it is possible to tell an untruth in the ancient language. You see, just because Murtagh said it in the AL doesn’t mean that it’s true, just that he believed it was true. That was the entire reason Eragon wrote a poem for the Agaeti Blodhren: so Islanzadi could tell Eragon that it was possible to tell untruths in the AL, if you really believed that they were true. So because Murtagh has seen no evidence showing that Eragon could not also be a son of Morzan, and because they do share a mother, he believes that Eragon was also the son of Morzan.

    Now, for the extensive evidence:

    P. 546

    “Son and Father alike, both blind as bats”.

    This is about betrayal. Brom was blind to Morzan’s betrayal, and Eragon was blind to Murtagh’s betrayal.

    Consider this quote from page 280 of Eldest: (Oromis) “Morzan was my greatest failure. Brom idolized him. He never left his side, never contradicted him, and never believed that he could best Morzan in any venture. Morzan, I’m ashamed to admit-for it was within my power to stop-was aware of this and took advantage of Brom’s devotion in a hundred different ways. He grew so proud and cruel that I considered separating him from Brom. But before I could, Morzan helped Galbatorix to steal a dragon hatchling, Shruikan, to replace the one Galbatorix had lost, killing the dragon’s original rider in the process. Morzan and Galbatorix then fled together, sealing our doom.”

    “You cannot begin to fathom the effect Morzan’s betrayal had on Brom until you understand the depth of Brom’s affection for him. And when Galbatorix at last revealed himself and the Forsworn killed Brom’s dragon, Brom focused all of his anger and pain on the one who he felt was responsible for the destruction of his world: Morzan.”

    I think that sums it up.

    Riddle #3 – This is the most important one

    p. 546

    “While two may share two,

    And one of two is certainly one,

    One might be two.”

    While two sons (Eragon and Murtagh) “may” share the same two parents (Morzan and Selena),
    And one parent of two parents, the Mother-Selena, is certainly the same one parent of both sons,

    One parent, the Father, might be two Fathers (Brom and Morzan) each having one of the sons.

    What in the world could this riddle be about if it doesn’t support the two-father theory?

    One last fact: Blagden never met Morzan so he could not have been talking about him. Morzan was never blind. He knew exactly what he was doing. He was after power. Brom was the only one who was blind by his insane idolization of Morzan.

    Eragon pages 281-282:

    While they spoke, Saphira crawled into the cave and greeted Eragon. She was glad to see him, but there was deep sadness in her thoughts and words. She laid her big blue head on the floor and asked, “Are you well again?”

    “Not quite.”

    “I miss the old one.”

    “As do I… I never suspected that he was a rider. Brom! He really was an old man – as old as the Forsworn. Everything he taught me about magic he must have learned from the riders themselves.”

    Saphira shifted slightly. “I knew what he was the moment he touched me at your farm.”

    “And you didn’t tell me? Why?”

    “He asked me not to,” she said simply.

    Eragon decided not to make an issue of it. Saphira never meant to hurt him. “Brom kept more than that secret,” he told her, then explained about Zar’roc and Murtagh’s reaction to it. “I understand now why Brom didn’t explain Zar’roc’s origins when he gave it to me. If he had, I probably would have run away from him at the first opportunity.”

    “You would do well to rid yourself of that sword,” she said with distaste. “I know it’s a peerless weapon, but you would be better off with a normal blade rather than Morzan’s butchery tool.”

    “Perhaps. Saphira, where does our path go from here? Murtagh offered to come with us. I don’t know his past, but he seems honest enough. Should we go to the Varden now? Only I don’t know how to find them. Brom never told us.”

    “He told me,” said Saphira.

    Eragon grew angry. “Why did he trust you, but not me, with all this knowledge?”

    Her scales rustled over the dry rock as she stood above him, eyes profound. “After we left Teirm and were attacked by the Urgals, he told me many things, some of which I will not speak of unless necessary. He was concerned about his own death and what would happen to you after it. One fact he imparted to me was the name of a man, Dormnad, who lives in Gil’ead. He can help us find the Varden. Brom also wanted you to know that of all the people in Alagaesia, he believed you were the best suited to inherit the Riders’ legacy.”
    Tears welled in Eragon’s eyes. This was the highest praise he could have ever received from Brom. “A responsibility I will bear honorably.”

    “Good.”

    Clearly Brom has told Saphira of things that he wouldn’t want revealed to Eragon until he is mature enough. Eragon would undoubtedly be distraught enough after losing his mentor, and to find out that Brom is also his father would completely confuse and demoralize him at a time when survival is paramount.

    Eldest page 656:

    Saphira ruffled his hair with a gust of hot breath. “Just remember, whatever Brom’s reasons, he always tried to protect us from danger. He died saving you from the Ra’zac.”

    “I know…. Do you think he didn’t tell me about this because he was afraid I might emulate Morzan, like Murtagh has?”

    “Of course not.”

    He looked at her, curious. “How can you be so certain?” She lifted her head high above him and refused to meet his eyes or to answer. “Have it your way, then.”

    This is an enormously important quote. Saphira is waiting to tell Oromis/Glaedr (she might have done so already) about Brom being Eragon’s father. I think it’s a sure bet that Oromis will be the one to tell Eragon the truth. Just like in Book 1, Saphira knows that Eragon isn’t quite mature enough to receive this information.

    Plus, if you look at it from a logistical standpoint, you’ll notice two things: 1) Inheritance is a coming-of-age story/trilogy, and Eragon shouldn’t (and hasn’t) come of age by the end of the second book and 2) Christopher Paolini just dropped a huge bombshell a mere 4 pages ago that Morzan is Eragon’s father – that would be absolutely horrendous writing to reveal something like that and then change it 4 pages later. This “revelation” is the big twist at the end of the novel. It’s just that we’ll find out that it wasn’t really a twist after all.

    There is a chapter in Eldest titled “Inheritance.” In it, Murtagh takes Zar’roc from Eragon and claims it as his inheritance. This conveniently leaves Eragon without a sword. In the third book Eragon will get his inheritance and his proper rider’s sword (meaning that it matches the color of his dragon).

    We are never told what happens to Brom’s sword. It is only mentioned indirectly when Eragon converses with the elf sword maker Rhunon. She mentions that there are only two of her swords left (other than Morzan’s and Oromis’), and they happen to each be held by two elven families. One is Brom’s, and the other is likely a green sword that will go to the rider of the green dragon.

    This makes Brom’s sword Eragon’s inheritance, and this is the Inheritance Trilogy, after all.

    However, there are some other questions that must still be answered. For example, why, if Brom was Eragon’s father, would he not raise his own son while both live in Carvahall? And why would Brom never tell Eragon that he was his father?

    In response to those two questions: there was no evidence whatsoever to imply that Eragon would be a rider in his early life. Brom was there in Carvahall to watch over him, and he did teach his son all about the old ways. When Eragon went to Brom’s to ask him questions about the riders Brom answered all of his questions. One of the best ways to teach is through stories, and in order to have Eragon learn more he had to be interested in riders and their history. I also think that if Brom said that he was Eragon’s father and a Rider, Eragon would be a whole lot less likely to believe that the riders really did exist and that they had fallen. If you’re told that all of the riders are dead, except that this ordinary storyteller that everyone’s known for 15 years is one, the stories would be a whole lot less credible.

    There’s also the fact that if Brom told Eragon that he was his father, other people in Carvahall would probably find out and word of it might leak back to Galbatorix. If Galbatorix found out that the last remaining rider and his son were living in Carvahall, I believe he would have left Uru’baen and gone out to destroy the village.

    Thirdly, if Eragon knew that Brom was his father, he could possibly reveal it when someone enters his head (like the twins) and the odds were reasonable (and it actually happened in the book) that the one(s) who find out that Eragon is Brom’s son worked for Galbatorix. If Galbatorix found out that the newest rider that wasn’t under his control was the son of Brom, he would have to assume that he was raised by Brom, and was the beneficiary of a lifetime of teaching by Brom. Since we know Brom was powerful and strong enough to have a hand in the deaths of eight of the Forsworn, his lifetime knowledge passed down to his son would make Eragon a much more deadly enemy than if Eragon was raised by a random farmer and never had any contact with Brom. If Galbatorix believed that Eragon was Brom’s son, he himself would have flown to the battle at the end of Eldest, and it would have been a forgone conclusion.

    And the big question: if Brom is indeed Eragon’s father, then how on earth would he and Selena have a chance to “make” Eragon?

    The potential for an affair comes to mind, or for a king Arthur-type situation. Or, as we don’t know exactly how long Selena was missing from the castle (“many months” is a very unclear length of time), she could have met Brom and fallen in love with him after running from the castle. Bear in mind that around the time of Selena’s disappearance, Morzan was off searching for Saphira’s egg, which had just been stolen, so would not have been around the castle or seeing Selena at any time. And that give Brom ample opportunity to see her.

  464. phil Says:

    there is also the possibility that nar garzvog will become the next rider

  465. phil Says:

    another possibility for the title could be eridor-old dragon who is dead- this can also be the name of the green dragon.

  466. Dani Says:

    First of all, STOP SUGGESTING STUPID IDEAS FOR THE NEXT DRAGON RIDER!!!!!!!!! ONLY ELVES/HUMAN CAN BE RIDERS!!!!!!!!Also there are 3 likely titles for the next book. Empire { most likely} Exile, and Escape. They are logical titles. Or Paloni might suprise fans and do some weird non- E, none 6 letter title. And I beilve that the Inheritance Trilogy is becoming a cult. And what is going to happen after the third book comes out? I mean, are we going to keep in contact on this website? Or what? I would like to keep talking to y’all.

  474. cat Says:

    After reading the things about brom being eragon father im starting to think that there is a big possibility of that. i have one ? though. if eragon is 16 and brom is around 100. wouldnt that make brom like 84 when eragagon was born?

  475. hye Says:

    Where in the world are you getting the phrophecy that Eragon leave Alagaesia? And it has to be Roran because they are all going to be related obviously.

    yeah dani, you have been away too long. about how many comments did you have to read.

    Hye, we got the prophecy from when Eragon asks Angela to tell his fortune. We also learned that Eragon’s mother was named Selena.

    cat
    yes, that would make brom about 84 when eragon was born. His life was longer than most because he was a rider.

    Berowl, you can post anything you want on my blog, it doesn’t matter to me. I was beginning to think that you had forgotten us all and that everyone on here had forgotten to get on because no one was on for like two days.

    Linda
    The rider is a woman, it is only fair. Read this ok? It is off of Shur’tugal.
    Vanir

    Vanir is likely for the same reason that Nasuada is unlikely: he is an elf. The fact that he is an elf means that he is already trained in the ways of magic, and that means that, were he to become the rider of the green dragon, he would need significantly less training than any human candidate.

    Against Vanir is the fact that he is male. Not that this last dragon is sexist, but as Saphira has told Eragon, whoever she or Eragon loves will affect the feelings of the other. So if Saphira falls in love with the green dragon (which is very likely-more on that later), her love for the green dragon would cause Eragon to develop feelings towards the green dragon. However, because a human can’t have feelings of that sort for a dragon, his emotions would be directed towards someone more accessible: the green dragon’s rider. It does seem likely that Eragon will develop a relationship with someone in the third book, and even more likely that that someone will be the green rider, and that he will have a child with that partner, for that reason the third rider is likely to be female.

    So, it’s possible that Vanir will be the rider of the green dragon.

    Arya

    Arya is the most likely candidate to become the rider of the green dragon. First, there is the fact that she is an elf, and a strong and talented elf at that. From what we’ve seen of her skills both with magic and with the sword, she would require very little training to be useful in battle, merely enough time for the green dragon to become mature enough to fight well in battle, which would be as soon as the green dragon learned to breathe fire, around six months after hatching. Along with that, Arya is female, and not just that but Eragon’s love interest. If Saphira were to fall in love with and mate with the green dragon, that would change Arya’s feelings for Eragon and the two of them would fall in love, as well. Third, two of the most often mentioned facts about Arya are her eye and magic color: emerald green. While eye color certainly has nothing to do with becoming a dragon rider, all of the riders we’ve seen so far in the trilogy have possessed magic the color of his dragon. While there is no evidence that this is always true, it can be interpreted as foreshadowing to her upcoming relation to the green dragon.

  484. Katie Says:

    hey ppls i think that arya will be the 3rd dragon rider because do u remember in the first book he had a vision in the chapter Deathwatch it says that he sees a group of people on proud horses approaching the river. Well in the second book Eldest when Eragon and Orik and Arya are in Du WeldenVarden they are travelling with two other elves. One goes into Silthrim and brings back 6 proud white horses. I believe the people on the proud horses are elves. I can prove this because in the vision many have silver hair. And we all know that no-one else has silver hair but them. Eragon sees that a strange fair ship is there. The group slowly board the ship. There are two that are slightly taller then the rest. They are walking arm in arm.Their faces were covered by cowls but Eragon could tell that one was a woman.They stood on the deck and faced the shore. A man stood alone on the pebble beach . He threw back his head and let out a long,aching cry. I believe that the man is Roran and that he crys out because the last Riders are leaving Alagaesia. The ship glided down the river without a breeze or oars. Which means that the boat was propelled by magic which elves are the best at.The vision clouded, but just before it disappeared, Eragon glimpsed two dragons in the sky. I think that somewhere in the second or first book Saphira mentions that if Eragon develops feelings toward someone, then she will as well. Because Eragon really really likes Arya, we can presume that the two dragons in the sky are Saphira and the green dragon. And if Arya is the green dragon’s rider, then we can say that Eragon and Arya are the two figures that are arm in arm. Because Eragon has feelings for Arya, Saphira will have feelings for Arya. And if Arya is the rider of the green dragon, Eragon and Saphira will develop feelings for the dragon. I also believe when Angela looked into his future she said he was destined to leave Alagaesia forever. I believe because he is with so many elves, that they are going to Alalea which is where the elves originated form.

    Shur’tugal theories

    Everyone’s biggest question. First, will it be good or evil? That the green dragon and his rider will be on the good side is expected; if the green dragon were evil, the Varden wouldn’t stand a chance. There are several candidates for the third rider, so here’s the list, in order from least likely to most likely:

    Orik

    The least likely candidate I’ve seen proposed to be the rider of the green dragon. People say he should be the last rider because then there would be the human Murtagh, the “elf” Eragon, and then the dwarf Orik. Supporting this theory is Orik’s apparent lack of fear when it comes to flying and the presence of Saphira herself.

    However, there is significant evidence against the theory, namely the fact that dwarves were not included in the spell that links the dragons to elves and humans, which is what allows human and elf riders to exist. You could say that just as humans were added to the spell, dwarves could be, as well. And while that is certainly possible, you must look at the likelihood of it actually happening. First of all, what cause would there be to add dwarves to the spell in the first place? No reason immediately presents itself. Along with this, why would the dwarves wish to be added to the spell? A vast majority of them have no interest in even the slightest contact with dragons, and they (or at least a few of them) are aware that the elves and humans are on the decline because of their connection to the dragons, so why would the dwarves want to be connected and thus possibly seal their own fate of declining?

    Therefore, Orik will most likely not be the rider of the green dragon.

    Elva

    Only slightly more likely than Orik for the simple reason that she’s human, and thus it’s currently possible for her to become a rider. Evidence for her comes first in the form of the dragon-mark Saphira placed on her forehead, and second from Eragon’s blessing, which should bring her to do great things in her life.

    However, even in her present, magically enhanced state, she is quite simply too young to be a rider, much less a useful one. Sure, maybe she could use her magic to make herself old enough, but you must keep in mind Eragon’s promise to Angela: that he would remove the blessing/curse that he placed over her. And once he removes the magic from her, she will once again be an infant child, and that would mean that she will have no contact with the dragon egg.

    So maybe, if there are more dragon eggs in the future, Elva will become a rider later in life. But it’s incredibly unlikely that she will be the rider the green dragon.

    A character that has yet to be introduced

    It’s always possible that CP could introduce a new character in book three and have that character be the rider of the green dragon. However, this is highly unlikely because both of our present riders of the new generation, Eragon and Murtagh, were introduced in the first book and had already received significant character development by the time they were riders. If a new character were to become the rider of the green dragon with substantially less development than the other candidates… I’m sure that many of us would be less than satisfied.

    So, it’s unlikely that any newly introduced character will be the rider of the green dragon.

    Roran

    Now we reach the group of four characters who are the most likely to become the rider of the green dragon. The main evidence people suggest for him is that, as Murtagh and Eragon apparently have the blood of a rider in them, Roran, who they claim also has the blood of a rider in him, should be one as well. This is wrong, however, as Roran is only related to Morzan (the rider he is supposedly getting blood from) because of Selena’s marriage to Morzan, and therefore does not have any blood relation to the man.

    Counting against Roran is first the fact that he is human and second the fact that he is male. More on why being male counts against him will come later, but here is a good place to address why being a human is bad for his chances of being the rider of the green dragon. Now, Eragon spent about four months training with Brom and about ten months training with Oromis, and even after all that time and training, Murtagh was still able to beat him, with apparent ease. For Roran to be effective in battle, he would likely have to train for even longer that, and that’s an amount of time that the Varden just doesn’t have in this war. It’s likely that the Empire could win the war in that amount of time.

    So, it’s possible but not probable that Roran will be the rider of the green dragon.

    Nasuada

    The third most likely choice for the rider of the green dragon. Nasuada is likely for several reasons: first, she’s female. Presently every rider that’s alive is male, a rather unbalanced situation. That makes the market for a female rider that much more open. Second, she’s the leader of the Varden, and being in such an important position, she’d likely have access to the egg, once stolen, before all members of the Varden aside from those who do the actual stealing. A third point some people bring up is that she could be related to Eragon and Murtagh (highly unlikely, borderline impossible-more on that in a moment), and because they are both riders, she should be as well.

    The main argument against Nasuada is the simple fact that she’s human, as is the case with Roran above. But along with that, it must be considered that Nasuada commands the Varden’s armies. The Varden cannot afford for their army to be without a commander for such a length of time.

    Now, to address why she cannot be related to Murtagh or Eragon: if she’s related to them, it’s obviously through Selena, as we know her father was Ajihad. However, it must be considered that, first of all, Nasuada and Murtagh are approximately the same age. Yes, I know that twins are possible, but how does a woman manage to have two children by two different fathers growing in her womb at the same time? Answer: it’s impossible. There’s more evidence, but after that explanation there’s really no need to elaborate. Nasuada is not at all related to Eragon and Murtagh.

    So, it’s possible but not probable that Nasuada will be the rider of the green dragon.

    Vanir

    Vanir is likely for the same reason that Nasuada is unlikely: he is an elf. The fact that he is an elf means that he is already trained in the ways of magic, and that means that, were he to become the rider of the green dragon, he would need significantly less training than any human candidate.

    Against Vanir is the fact that he is male. Not that this last dragon is sexist, but as Saphira has told Eragon, whoever she or Eragon loves will affect the feelings of the other. So if Saphira falls in love with the green dragon (which is very likely-more on that later), her love for the green dragon would cause Eragon to develop feelings towards the green dragon. However, because a human can’t have feelings of that sort for a dragon, his emotions would be directed towards someone more accessible: the green dragon’s rider. It does seem likely that Eragon will develop a relationship with someone in the third book, and even more likely that that someone will be the green rider, and that he will have a child with that partner, for that reason the third rider is likely to be female.

    So, it’s possible that Vanir will be the rider of the green dragon.

    Arya

    Arya is the most likely candidate to become the rider of the green dragon. First, there is the fact that she is an elf, and a strong and talented elf at that. From what we’ve seen of her skills both with magic and with the sword, she would require very little training to be useful in battle, merely enough time for the green dragon to become mature enough to fight well in battle, which would be as soon as the green dragon learned to breathe fire, around six months after hatching. Along with that, Arya is female, and not just that but Eragon’s love interest. If Saphira were to fall in love with and mate with the green dragon, that would change Arya’s feelings for Eragon and the two of them would fall in love, as well. Third, two of the most often mentioned facts about Arya are her eye and magic color: emerald green. While eye color certainly has nothing to do with becoming a dragon rider, all of the riders we’ve seen so far in the trilogy have possessed magic the color of his dragon. While there is no evidence that this is always true, it can be interpreted as foreshadowing to her upcoming relation to the green dragon.

    The main piece of evidence against Arya is that people claim she is too old. However, there is no evidence that there is a set age limit for becoming a rider, so such a point is meaningless.

    So, it is highly likely that Arya will be the rider of the green dragon.

    The Weapon Under the Menoa Tree

    Ah, Solembum’s words. “When the time comes and you need a weapon, look under the roots of the Menoa tree. But what will this weapon be?

    Some say that Eragon has already received his weapon: his transformation at the Agaeti Blodhren. They say that he was under the Menoa tree when he was transformed, and because of this, the transformation was his weapon.

    However, this is likely not the case for the simple reason that it does not match up with Solembum’s words. First, he must be looking for this weapon, and at that time he certainly was not attempting to find a weapon, he was just watching the ceremony. And along with this, the weapon may have been under the Menoa tree, but it was not under the roots of the Menoa tree, which Solembum specified as criteria for this weapon. So, his transformation likely was not the weapon.

    No, it’s much more likely that the weapon will be just that: an actual, physical weapon. Say, a sword or, more specifically, Brom’s sword. Remember, it’s said that Brom lost his sword. Seems like an odd place to lose it, though, under a huge tree far from where the fighting during the Fall (the time when he most likely lost his sword) took place. But then, that’s why we must look someplace else: in this case, the dictionary.

    Look at the definition for, “root.” In my dictionary, the #3 definition is the word, “origin.” Therefore, instead of looking under the physical roots themselves, Eragon must look to the origins of the Menoa tree: two old elven families, both of which are in possession of the swords of old riders that they salvaged from the wreckage of the battles of the Fall. One elven family will have Brom’s sword, which they will gladly give to Eragon when he comes to see them. As for the other elven family with a sword… They’ll give it the third rider, whose green dragon will match the sword in their possession.

    The Vault of Souls, its Location and its Contents

    Once again, it’s time to look at what Solembum has told Eragon. “Then, when all seems lost and your power is insufficient, go to the rock of Kuthian and speak your name to open the Vault of Souls.”

    Where is the Vault of Souls, first of all? Some say that it is on Doru Areaba, the great city of the riders. Others say that it is the Star Sapphire of Tronjheim. However, there is one location that seems much more likely: Helgrind.

    Now, if you examine the description of Helgrind, you’ll notice that it looks strikingly similar to a rock formation in New Mexico known as Ship Rock. If you switch the words around a bit, you get… Rock of Ship. Looks a bit like the Rock of Kuthain, doesn’t it? The other reasons for Helgrind to be the likely location of the Rock of Kuthain become clear later, in the discussion of the contents of the Vault of Souls.

    So, then we move onto the likely contents of the Vault of Souls. Sounds pretty basic, doesn’t it? It’s a vault… containing souls. But for what purpose, and from where? Remember when Eragon was fighting Murtagh? He discovers that Murtagh’s mind seemingly contains multitudes-multitudes of souls. So clearly, Murtagh is drawing his power from other souls along with his own, and if he was taught by Galbatorix, then it stands to reason that Galbatorix does, as well.

    But where do the souls come from? Well, if we’re supposing that the Vault of Souls is in Helgrind, that immediately reminds us of another sinister pair of characters: the Ra’zac. Now, the Ra’zac are the king’s personal dragon hunters, and also are creatures meant to prey on humans. So, it’s clear that these Ra’zac do a lot of killing. But instead of letting all the power of a soul go to waste, why not find a way to store it, instead? Say, to use a spell that, instead of destroying the soul of those killed by the Ra’zac, instead stores it in a handy vault: a Vault of Souls. This explains why Galbatorix is seemingly impossibly getting stronger every year: every time the Ra’zac kill a person, that soul is added to the Vault and Galbatorix (and now Murtagh, as well) become more powerful. Of course, the Vault of Souls is also a physical place, so why not throw in any dragon eggs for safekeeping? Namely, that of the green dragon.

    And said contents explain why opening the vault will be so important: not only will it give the Varden access to another dragon egg and soon another rider, but it will also make Galbatorix and Murtagh both substantially less powerful, and give Eragon a fair chance at beating one or both of them (with help from the green dragon’s rider, of course).

    The True Identity of Eragon’s Father

    Hear me out on this one. A lot of you are screaming one very misinformed and meaningless thing right now: “Murtagh said that Morzan was his father in the ancient language, and since you can’t lie in the ancient language, Morzan must be his father!” However, this is not at all true, and in reality Morzan is not Eragon’s father. It is Brom.

    First, you must understand that it is possible to tell an untruth in the ancient language. You see, just because Murtagh said it in the AL doesn’t mean that it’s true, just that he believed it was true. That was the entire reason Eragon wrote a poem for the Agaeti Blodhren: so Islanzadi could tell Eragon that it was possible to tell untruths in the AL, if you really believed that they were true. So because Murtagh has seen no evidence showing that Eragon could not also be a son of Morzan, and because they do share a mother, he believes that Eragon was also the son of Morzan.

    Now, for the extensive evidence:

    P. 546

    “Son and Father alike, both blind as bats”.

    This is about betrayal. Brom was blind to Morzan’s betrayal, and Eragon was blind to Murtagh’s betrayal.

    Consider this quote from page 280 of Eldest: (Oromis) “Morzan was my greatest failure. Brom idolized him. He never left his side, never contradicted him, and never believed that he could best Morzan in any venture. Morzan, I’m ashamed to admit-for it was within my power to stop-was aware of this and took advantage of Brom’s devotion in a hundred different ways. He grew so proud and cruel that I considered separating him from Brom. But before I could, Morzan helped Galbatorix to steal a dragon hatchling, Shruikan, to replace the one Galbatorix had lost, killing the dragon’s original rider in the process. Morzan and Galbatorix then fled together, sealing our doom.”

    “You cannot begin to fathom the effect Morzan’s betrayal had on Brom until you understand the depth of Brom’s affection for him. And when Galbatorix at last revealed himself and the Forsworn killed Brom’s dragon, Brom focused all of his anger and pain on the one who he felt was responsible for the destruction of his world: Morzan.”

    I think that sums it up.

    Riddle #3 – This is the most important one

    p. 546

    “While two may share two,

    And one of two is certainly one,

    One might be two.”

    While two sons (Eragon and Murtagh) “may” share the same two parents (Morzan and Selena),
    And one parent of two parents, the Mother-Selena, is certainly the same one parent of both sons,

    One parent, the Father, might be two Fathers (Brom and Morzan) each having one of the sons.

    What in the world could this riddle be about if it doesn’t support the two-father theory?

    One last fact: Blagden never met Morzan so he could not have been talking about him. Morzan was never blind. He knew exactly what he was doing. He was after power. Brom was the only one who was blind by his insane idolization of Morzan.

    Eragon pages 281-282:

    While they spoke, Saphira crawled into the cave and greeted Eragon. She was glad to see him, but there was deep sadness in her thoughts and words. She laid her big blue head on the floor and asked, “Are you well again?”

    “Not quite.”

    “I miss the old one.”

    “As do I… I never suspected that he was a rider. Brom! He really was an old man – as old as the Forsworn. Everything he taught me about magic he must have learned from the riders themselves.”

    Saphira shifted slightly. “I knew what he was the moment he touched me at your farm.”

    “And you didn’t tell me? Why?”

    “He asked me not to,” she said simply.

    Eragon decided not to make an issue of it. Saphira never meant to hurt him. “Brom kept more than that secret,” he told her, then explained about Zar’roc and Murtagh’s reaction to it. “I understand now why Brom didn’t explain Zar’roc’s origins when he gave it to me. If he had, I probably would have run away from him at the first opportunity.”

    “You would do well to rid yourself of that sword,” she said with distaste. “I know it’s a peerless weapon, but you would be better off with a normal blade rather than Morzan’s butchery tool.”

    “Perhaps. Saphira, where does our path go from here? Murtagh offered to come with us. I don’t know his past, but he seems honest enough. Should we go to the Varden now? Only I don’t know how to find them. Brom never told us.”

    “He told me,” said Saphira.

    Eragon grew angry. “Why did he trust you, but not me, with all this knowledge?”

    Her scales rustled over the dry rock as she stood above him, eyes profound. “After we left Teirm and were attacked by the Urgals, he told me many things, some of which I will not speak of unless necessary. He was concerned about his own death and what would happen to you after it. One fact he imparted to me was the name of a man, Dormnad, who lives in Gil’ead. He can help us find the Varden. Brom also wanted you to know that of all the people in Alagaesia, he believed you were the best suited to inherit the Riders’ legacy.”
    Tears welled in Eragon’s eyes. This was the highest praise he could have ever received from Brom. “A responsibility I will bear honorably.”

    “Good.”

    Clearly Brom has told Saphira of things that he wouldn’t want revealed to Eragon until he is mature enough. Eragon would undoubtedly be distraught enough after losing his mentor, and to find out that Brom is also his father would completely confuse and demoralize him at a time when survival is paramount.

    Eldest page 656:

    Saphira ruffled his hair with a gust of hot breath. “Just remember, whatever Brom’s reasons, he always tried to protect us from danger. He died saving you from the Ra’zac.”

    “I know…. Do you think he didn’t tell me about this because he was afraid I might emulate Morzan, like Murtagh has?”

    “Of course not.”

    He looked at her, curious. “How can you be so certain?” She lifted her head high above him and refused to meet his eyes or to answer. “Have it your way, then.”

    This is an enormously important quote. Saphira is waiting to tell Oromis/Glaedr (she might have done so already) about Brom being Eragon’s father. I think it’s a sure bet that Oromis will be the one to tell Eragon the truth. Just like in Book 1, Saphira knows that Eragon isn’t quite mature enough to receive this information.

    Plus, if you look at it from a logistical standpoint, you’ll notice two things: 1) Inheritance is a coming-of-age story/trilogy, and Eragon shouldn’t (and hasn’t) come of age by the end of the second book and 2) Christopher Paolini just dropped a huge bombshell a mere 4 pages ago that Morzan is Eragon’s father – that would be absolutely horrendous writing to reveal something like that and then change it 4 pages later. This “revelation” is the big twist at the end of the novel. It’s just that we’ll find out that it wasn’t really a twist after all.

    There is a chapter in Eldest titled “Inheritance.” In it, Murtagh takes Zar’roc from Eragon and claims it as his inheritance. This conveniently leaves Eragon without a sword. In the third book Eragon will get his inheritance and his proper rider’s sword (meaning that it matches the color of his dragon).

    We are never told what happens to Brom’s sword. It is only mentioned indirectly when Eragon converses with the elf sword maker Rhunon. She mentions that there are only two of her swords left (other than Morzan’s and Oromis’), and they happen to each be held by two elven families. One is Brom’s, and the other is likely a green sword that will go to the rider of the green dragon.

    This makes Brom’s sword Eragon’s inheritance, and this is the Inheritance Trilogy, after all.

    However, there are some other questions that must still be answered. For example, why, if Brom was Eragon’s father, would he not raise his own son while both live in Carvahall? And why would Brom never tell Eragon that he was his father?

    In response to those two questions: there was no evidence whatsoever to imply that Eragon would be a rider in his early life. Brom was there in Carvahall to watch over him, and he did teach his son all about the old ways. When Eragon went to Brom’s to ask him questions about the riders Brom answered all of his questions. One of the best ways to teach is through stories, and in order to have Eragon learn more he had to be interested in riders and their history. I also think that if Brom said that he was Eragon’s father and a Rider, Eragon would be a whole lot less likely to believe that the riders really did exist and that they had fallen. If you’re told that all of the riders are dead, except that this ordinary storyteller that everyone’s known for 15 years is one, the stories would be a whole lot less credible.

    There’s also the fact that if Brom told Eragon that he was his father, other people in Carvahall would probably find out and word of it might leak back to Galbatorix. If Galbatorix found out that the last remaining rider and his son were living in Carvahall, I believe he would have left Uru’baen and gone out to destroy the village.

    Thirdly, if Eragon knew that Brom was his father, he could possibly reveal it when someone enters his head (like the twins) and the odds were reasonable (and it actually happened in the book) that the one(s) who find out that Eragon is Brom’s son worked for Galbatorix. If Galbatorix found out that the newest rider that wasn’t under his control was the son of Brom, he would have to assume that he was raised by Brom, and was the beneficiary of a lifetime of teaching by Brom. Since we know Brom was powerful and strong enough to have a hand in the deaths of eight of the Forsworn, his lifetime knowledge passed down to his son would make Eragon a much more deadly enemy than if Eragon was raised by a random farmer and never had any contact with Brom. If Galbatorix believed that Eragon was Brom’s son, he himself would have flown to the battle at the end of Eldest, and it would have been a forgone conclusion.

    And the big question: if Brom is indeed Eragon’s father, then how on earth would he and Selena have a chance to “make” Eragon?

    The potential for an affair comes to mind, or for a king Arthur-type situation. Or, as we don’t know exactly how long Selena was missing from the castle (“many months” is a very unclear length of time), she could have met Brom and fallen in love with him after running from the castle. Bear in mind that around the time of Selena’s disappearance, Morzan was off searching for Saphira’s egg, which had just been stolen, so would not have been around the castle or seeing Selena at any time. And that give Brom ample opportunity to see her.

    Brom’s Seven Words

    Remember these? Just before his death, Brom tells Eragon seven words in the ancient language, then what they mean, and then he tells them only to use the words in great need. What these words could possibly be, however, is open to much interpretation.

    The first theory is that these words are Eragon’s (or someone else’s) true name, yet this is unlikely for many reasons, first because seven words is far too long to be a person’s name, second because telling a person their true name can be incredibly dangerous, and third, how on earth would Brom know? Instead of that, it could be possible that these words have something to do with the Menoa tree, perhaps a way to communicate with it in some way. However, this seems unlikely because something like that would be more of an interest than something that should only be used in great need. Another theory is that the seven words are some sort of password to be told to the family in possession of Brom’s sword so they will know to give it to Eragon, but again, that does not sound like something that should be used, “only in great need.”

    Another possibility is that what Brom told him is a spell that human dragon riders could use to boost their physical attributes to become equal to those of an elf, or perhaps the enchantments that Oromis uses to keep himself alive despite his sickness or how elves can sing to trees and other plants. That would explain why no elf knew of (or planned to teach Eragon) these spells, but Brom did. This seems unlikely, however, because Eragon has already had his attributes boosted to match those of an elf (thus making Brom’s words useless) and singing to trees doesn’t seem to be a very useful ability and especially not one that should only be used when the need is great.

    The most likely (and simplest) explanation, of course, is that these seven words are a very powerful spell (of either destruction or healing) that, unfortunately, has a terrible energy cost or other price attached to it that means the spell should only be used in the most dire of situations. Of the two choices, destruction is much more likely.

    The New Dwarf King

    The question here is simple: Orik or someone else? The other dwarves seemed to be against Hrothgar and his pro-dragon policies; as Orik also seems pro-dragon, likely the other clan leaders (as Orik is Hrothgar’s heir, he will take control of Durgrimst Ingietum) will vote for one other than Orik as new king.

    Unless, of course, something happens to change their minds before the election takes place. Now, it will be a while before a new dwarf king will be elected, as Hrothgar must be buried first, and he will have a long way to travel before he can be laid to rest. That gives Eragon and Saphira ample opportunity to do a variety of things, one of which will be Saphira healing the star sapphire. After Saphira fixes, “the heart of Tronjheim,” that likely will change the hearts of the dwarven clan leaders and cause them to act in the interest of their now pro-dragon people: to elect a pro-dragon candidate. And that candidate would be none other than Orik. However, the clan leaders likely will not act as one, and it will shape up to be a rather messy election.

    So, expect Orik to become the king of his people, but the process may not be pretty.

    Eragon’s Love

    Who will Eragon fall in love with? It’s part of Angela’s prediction, that, “an epic romance is in your future, extraordinary, as the moon indicates-for that is a magical symbol-and strong enough to outlast empires. I cannot say if this passion will end happily, but your love is of noble birth and heritage. She is wise, powerful, and beautiful beyond compare.” So, there are two possibilities: either he will fall in love with Arya, or he will not.

    If he does not fall in love with Arya, than who with? Or will he fall in love again at all? Some people claim that he will fall in love with Katrina, but that is simply idiotic: why on earth would he fall in love with a person who is already engaged to his brother? It makes no sense. Eragon will not fall in love with Katrina.

    Another option, slightly more likely, is Nasuada. People have said that because Arya does not return Eragon’s love, it does not qualify as romance and therefore his epic romance is still to come. They also claim that she would fulfill the prophecy because, as leader of the Varden, she is certainly noble. However, this is not correct, for the prophecy reads, “of noble birth and heritage,” meaning that Nasuada would have to be born into nobility to fulfill it, and as she was merely born to a man who was fleeing from the empire and not some manner of royalty. But regardless of the prophecy, it still seems unlikely that Eragon and Nasuada will fall in love. After all, Nasuada has a rebellion to lead, and falling in love with one of her vassals is certainly going to disrupt the war effort.

    And of course, the possibility remains that Eragon will never fall in love after ending his pursuit of Arya. But I believe that we will see more evidence connected to other theories that makes this option also very unlikely.

    Now, it is of course the most likely that his love for Arya is the fulfillment of the prophecy, and when Saphira mates with the green dragon, ridden by Arya, that will influence Arya to fall in love with Eragon, and there will be the epic romance. And, of course, because they are both riders and therefore understand each other perfectly, this romance will have a happy result.

    Saphira’s Mate

    One of the most important questions concerning the future of Alagaesia: who will be Saphira’s mate? There are five possibilities, some more likely than others.

    The first and least likely is Glaedr. The argument for him is that he is the only male dragon currently on the same side as Saphira, so when the situation begins to look bleak the two of them will have to mate to sustain their race. However, Glaedr has already refused Saphira once, and likely she’s learned her lesson and won’t try again.

    Another possibility is that Saphira and Eragon will search for wild dragons, and Saphira will find one willing to be her mate. However, Saphira and Eragon are going to be busy with a war, and will have no time to go and search for other dragons, making this option also unlikely. It is possible that they could search after the war, there is another theory that essentially disproves this that I’ll get to later.

    Thorn and Shruikan have pretty much the same chance, but the only real way for Saphira to mate with either of them would be if she were captured by Galbatorix. If captured, Saphira would be forced to mate with one of them, and there’s no way Saphira is strong enough to resist them. This is quite possible, but considering CP’s plot so far, it is not as likely as…

    Saphira falling in love with the green dragon. Varden gets egg, egg hatches, green dragon matures, falls in love with Saphira, they mate. Sounds simple, is simple. If Saphira wants a mate on her side of the war and Glaedr isn’t going to, the only option for her is the green dragon.

    The green dragon and Thorn or Shruikan are both equally likely based on the evidence, so you have to consider which is more likely based on what CP has written so far. Now, so far, nothing bad has happened to Saphira. That can mean one of two things: either nothing will happen to her, or she’s due for something bad to happen. But it’s more likely that nothing bad will happen to her, and she will fall in love and mate with the green dragon.

    Who Will Die?

    Who, exactly, of the major characters, is going to die? Obviously Galbatorix will; that goes without saying. It’s highly likely that Oromis and Glaedr will as well, Oromis from his mysterious disease and Glaedr from Oromis’ death. People also seem to think that Thorn will die, but Murtagh will not. It is certainly possible, as Murtagh is on the side of evil (if reluctantly), but Galbatorix will not make the mistake of leaving loopholes in his oaths again. That means that if Eragon and Murtagh meet again in battle, Eragon will be unable to show Murtagh any mercy. It is likely that Thorn will die, and Murtagh may as well, that is unclear. Whether the king’s dragon, Shruikan, will die is another debate. Some think that he will die along with Galbatorix, while others think that, because Galbatorix was not Shruikan’s original rider, the bond between the two will be weaker than normal, meaning that Shruikan will not only survive Galbatorix’s death but become good upon the death of his surrogate rider. As we have not yet seen Galbatorix or Shruikan, we cannot determine the strength of their bond and thus cannot determine the answer to this question, one way or another. However, Shruikan dying with his rider is more likely.

    One of the strangest-and, even stranger, most popular-death theories is that Arya will die. But seriously, people. One of the most obvious things in this entire trilogy is that Arya will be the rider of the green dragon. And if she is that green dragon’s rider, and we know that there are two dragons in the sky in Eragon’s dream before Garrow’s death (more on that dream later, but it is rather obvious foreshadowing for the last scene of book three), that means that the riders of those two dragons (Saphira and the green dragon) must survive the war, and therefore Eragon and Arya will survive. And while we’re on the subject of main characters’ love interests dying, Katrina won’t die, either.

    Of course, there will be some other casualties, namely a bunch of minor characters: several high-ranking Varden members (likely including Nasuada and Orrin), unimportant elves and servants of Galbatorix, villagers, etc.

    Who Will Kill Galbatorix?

    Yes, believe it or not, there are dissenting opinions regarding the answer to this question. The choice for Galbatorix’s killer is split between two people, one very obvious and one… rather odd: Eragon and Shruikan (if you think Murtagh will kill Galbatorix by throwing him into a bottomless pit filled with glowing blue electricity, please, for the sake of all mankind, commit hara-kiri… now).

    Some people seem to think that Shruikan will turn good at the last moment possible and kill Galbatorix, typically by squishing him. However, this is highly unlikely. Regardless of how Shruikan originally felt about Galbatorix, the two of them have now been joined for a hundred years. Considering how much the two of them have been though in that time, it’s quite obvious that they care quite a lot for each other, and therefore Shruikan will not kill Galbatorix.

    So that leaves one man to be Galbatorix’s killer: Eragon. As it should be.

    The New Ruler of Alagaesia

    With Galbatorix dead, who will rule Alagaesia in his place? It clearly will not be Eragon, for he will leave Alagaesia forever, as Angela predicted, and how can he rule a place when he is no longer there? And besides that, he has already expressed that he does not want to rule.

    The new ruler will not be an elf or dwarf. They already have their own rulers in their own kingdoms, so that just leaves the humans to decide who will rule. So to determine that, we must look to the past rulers of humans in Alagaesia: king Palancar and his descendants. And where did the descendants of Palancar dwell before they were driven out by the soldiers of the king? Palancar valley or, more specifically, Carvahall. So, who is in charge of Carvahall? Roran. So he will rule Alagaesia as his ancestors did, with Katrina as his queen.

    What Will Happen At the End of Book Three?

    The answer to this final question can be determined by decoding something given to us relatively close to the beginning of Eragon: Eragon’s dream in the chapter Deathwatch. In this dream, Eragon sees some people boarding a silver ship. Two of them are apparently taller than all the others, a man and a woman who are holding hands. Then the ship sails away, and a man who stayed on the beach cries out, and as the dream fades away, two dragons are seen in the sky.

    The two dragons are the easiest to decode: Saphira and the green dragon, flying away above the ship that they’re too large to land on. The presence of the two dragons means that their riders, Eragon and Arya, are on the ship as well. And as there are two people taller than all others, holding hands, that are specifically mentioned among the rest of those boarding the ship, we can assume that these two are elves and, most likely, Eragon and Arya. Them holding hands is another indication that they have indeed fallen in love. Eragon is boarding this ship because his destiny is to leave Alagaesia together, so of course his bonded partner, Saphira, and his love, Arya (and the green dragon), will journey away with him. And because Arya is an elf, where better to go but to the old home of the elves, Alalea?

    The man screaming on the beach is up for considerably more debate. The possibilities are Murtagh (which assumes that he survives the war), Roran and, in an incredibly complicated theory I’m not going to delve into that involves the son of Arya and Eragon and a spell enabling time travel, the first Eragon. It being Murtagh is unlikely for a couple of reasons: first of all, if it’s him, where’s Thorn? It’s been said as incredibly rare for a rider to survive the death of his or her dragon, yet we already know of two: Brom and Galbatorix. So for us to have met more riders that have survived the deaths of their dragons than those who have not would imply against what we’ve already been told as fact, meaning that if Thorn is dead, so should be Murtagh, meaning that because Thorn is not present, the man is not Murtagh. Second, why would he be there, and third, why would he be screaming? There appears to be nothing on that boat that he cares incredibly for. He was friends with Eragon, yes, but certainly not enough of one to scream at his departure.

    Which leaves Roran. Yes, of course he would be there to see his foster brother and brother’s wife, and the last two dragon riders in Alagaesia, leave forever. And of course he would scream in anguish at never being able to see his foster brother again, not knowing for the rest of his live what became of him. Roran fits.

    I dont know if you guys and girls know this but brom is way older than 100, in the first book eragon says that the event happend over a 100 years, but he has to be older than Arya which makes him way older than 100 years old

    I think that katrina will be the owner of of the green dragon. But i also think that oromis was looking after a dragon egg and arya becomes another rider and thats what the dream ment

    I think that the werecat in ellesmera is a spy for gal and, providing that the vault of souls is really where you learn ur real name, that the werecat somehow got into the vault and found out Murtaghs real name thas gal now being able to control him

    What does “Eka celöbra ono un malabra ono né haina” mean?

  502. nadia Says:

    I higly doubt that Katrina will be the next dragon rider, she is like the last person that could become the next dragon rider.

  503. Draco Says:

    Eka celöbra ono un malabra ono né haina. This Means, “I honor you and mean you no harm.” More or less.

  504. Draco Says:

    CP has already stated in an interview that its not going to be Katrina also that he has left clues as to who it is in the Books. A Rider has the Same color magic as its rider. Galbatorix uses Black-Shurikan is black, Eragon uses Blue-Saphira is Blue, Murtag uses red-Thorn is red. Arya uses Green Magic-Her dragon will be the green one….Also her the books constantly refer to her eyes being Emerald. 🙂

    i think that the third book will be called empire and the dragon will most likely be green

  506. Draco Says:

    The Dragon will be green because the cover of the book is going to have a green Dragon facing the right just like the other books.

  507. Lewis Says:

    I have only recently found this website so this is my first post…. I think that the movie was poor in comparison to the book, events happened at totally the wrong times and saphira’s voice was humerous but other than that the movie was pretty good. I agree that the dragon will probably be green and the rider Arya but could it possibly be Gertrude or Angela??

  508. Draco Says:

    According to CP’s newsletter thingy it won’t be angela he created that character in likeness of his sister or something. As for Gertrude I don’t think she has had enough character development yet…not like arya

  509. Lewis Says:

    I suppose but why would he bother including the fact that Jeod had heard of her otherwise??

  510. Draco Says:

    Because Jode told Roran That he had heard Brom say that he left a letter with Gertrude to give to roran explaining why brom left with eragon etc etc….Jode recognized the name when Roran Mentioned it in book 2. CP used this as a way for Jode to know who Roran was and thus lead to the plot he set up.

  511. Draco Says:

    Ok guys I will give you one to think about for abit…..I propose That the Blind Begger that Angelia gave a prophecy to was Shruikan’s original rider…I have nothing to base this on except the fact that we know for a fact he is not dead….If He was dead then Shruikan would be dead as well, because a dragon can’t survive the loss of its rider, only a rider can survive the dragons death.

  512. Lewis Says:

    Shruikan had no original rider did he didn’t Galbatorix and Morzan steal the egg? The egg had not had the spell that forced it only to hatch for the chosen rider?? unsure of this but anyways.

  513. Draco Says:

    Well According to the book Galbatorix and Morzan Slew Shruikan’s rider.

  514. Lewis Says:

    which book and chapter??

  515. Draco Says:

    Eragon Book 1, Chapter “Dragon Tales” page 33 second to last paragraph end of paragraph. The paragraph states at the end that Galbatorix stole a dragon Hatchling…Meaning not an egg.

  516. Lewis Says:

    ah ok…. good theory then

  517. Draco Says:

    Also page 280 in Book 2 explains this as well.

  518. Lewis Says:

    Do you think that Murtagh and Galbatorix get their energy for spellcasting in the vault of souls or another source??

  519. Lewis Says:

    Oh and I’ve just completed my own Inheritance forum at http://talkinheritance.piczo.com

  520. Draco Says:

    Vault of souls which I believe to be located within Hellgrind or Rock or Kuthain.

  521. Katie Says:

    i think that murtagh can be freed from the oath he took without gal dying because couldn’t he do the thing the elves do and say one thing but mean another. So technically you can lie in the ancient language

  522. Katie Says:

    does anyone know when the third book is coming out in australia cause i read on a website that it was coming out in summer of 2007. but i might be wrong i’m not sure. does anyone know when its comingf out in australia

  523. sean Says:

    what do you people not under stand about the word obvieos someon always falls in love in books like these and it makes total sense for arya and eragon to fall in love and you inheret the magics color aft you touch the dragon

  524. sean Says:

    p.s games based on movies usally have 2nd hand graphics and the movie had somthing called a buget pich up a fricken dictionary

  525. sean Says:

    happy new year

  526. sean Says:

    i would like to state to anyone that thinks arya and eragon wont fal in love is not on the ball she buetiful smart yadayada i wont state that she is clad in leather anyone who thinks it inpractical is dumb people wore leather all the time in the middle ages duh!(:

  527. josh Says:

    The whole thin g was obviouse from murtagh being captured by urgles and have enyone thourt of an urgle rider , eventhough it is highly unlikly but they could be put in the spell thing that makes the bonding posibble

  528. berowl Says:

    Welcome to all new comers!!!
    Happy New Year!!!!!!!

    Lewis: I love your site^^
    Draco: Your theory is great and I was also wondering who the blind character could be. Good guess I think….

    Still spending good holidays with my familly, will visit and post when I can^^

    berowl.

  529. shadowhunter Says:

    the release date for the 3rd book in australia is the 13th of september

  530. josh Says:

    do u know the uk 1

  531. josh Says:

    we all know who the green rider is going to be but i want to know how she maneges to get the egg and when in the book e.g. middle, end, beggining And when she does become a rider it would be pretty pointless until all the fightin and stuff is over becouse she would be to weak to help even if she is an elf , it would take months for her to get up to eragons level which judging by the end of the secound book isnt very high i would like to read about the “bad guys” that would make it more intresting becouse the varden and rohons point of view was a bit boring

  532. sean Says:

    somone inside the castle will probly steel the egg and give it to her

  533. chris shade77 Says:

    the next rider will be elna thats that

  534. julia Says:

    The third book is probably going to be called “EMPIRE”

  535. long live vrael Says:

    and no offense but “empire” sounds to me like a crappy name

  536. chris shade77 Says:

    christopher paolini hopefully will not give it that name

  537. chris shade77 Says:

    yes Arya and Eragon will be able to hook up eventually……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. * 2000 years later* * old man steps out with long white beard he is eragon ” * old haggard voice* maybe i should visit that hot Arya oh darn it shes to old all have to wait another 10000000 years to have a chance with her”. * his arm falls off* ” were am I gonna get another one of those?!!! ” ah &%%&*(&%$#^&&”>

  538. long live vrael Says:

    rotflmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  539. long live vrael Says:

    josh so is elna the person your talking about elna but elnas not an elf

  540. nadia Says:

    that was funny chris shade77!!!:)

  541. long live vrael Says:

    oh yea sorry about saying elna i was being stupid its elva

  542. chris shade77 Says:

    oh yeah who the hell is the retard who said katrina will be the next rider rotflmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that makes about as much sense as if solembum kills eragon oromis and galbtorix and starts his own empire. i mean cmon read the friken book she is with a doubt the last person who i would expect to be the next rider.

  543. chris shade77 Says:

    thanks nadia

  544. chris shade77 Says:

    its kinda true thogh eragon is what 16 and arya is 100.

  545. chris shade77 Says:

    hmmmmm am i though only 1 who thinks elva will be the next rider

  546. chris shade77 Says:

    it just said on shurtugal that the title of book 3 begins with an e and it is 6 letters `if it is “empire” i will burn the cover of my book cmon Christopher Paolini think of a better title!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  547. chris shade77 Says:

    how about something cool like ” emarlda” since the new dragon will be green I think that would be a good idea but please anything but empire to me it just sounds like junk

  548. chris shade77 Says:

    my theory could work since they say the title is 6 letters but it would have to be changed to ” emarld”

  549. sean Says:

    you spelled emrald wrong chris but it sound like a stable theory

  550. sean Says:

    and christophe paolini said the next dragon rider would be abvios

  551. sean Says:

    you guys are just tuning me out arent you

  552. Draco Says:

    The next rider is obvious it will be arya…The Books refer constently to her emerald eyes, and her green magic….Put 2 and 2 together people :P. And some people think the book will be called Eridor, this was a name brom listed in book one when eragon asked for names. So it could be the green dragons name.

  553. Lewis Says:

    The next rider probably will be Arya, though there are other possibilities like nassauda.

  554. Lewis Says:

    OR… maybe (highly doubtful) mutagh will turn to the good side and become gay with eragon. Then saphira and thorn get it on make loadza new dragons and they all get riders and then they like kick galbatorix’s ass?? no??

  555. Lewis Says:

    Chris shade 77… do u give noobs stuff aswell… my last account got hacked made a new one… like level 4 at the mo 😦

  556. josh Says:

    arya is being the next rider so we can all stop goin round in circles
    its obviouse to me but there again i’m not a noob

  557. josh Says:

    and i also agree with draco, that makes more sense and it would be a better title than “Empire” if that is goin to be the name of the next book then i say he should stop writting alltogether Once again i want to say that i agree with the name of the dragon thing

  558. josh Says:

    I would also like to see the bad guys win at the end of the book but still with a couple of twists that make it not all bad other wise it would all just be pointless

  559. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    im back!!!!!!
    in the dream in deathwater chapter it says “apporoached a lonely river”
    in the map and known river-connected- to-sea are only 2.
    1)torak river by terim and 2)jiet river by surda.

  560. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    berowl where did u get the cover art
    i read the preview of book 3.
    turns out helgrind is an ILLUSION. lol

    roran will be king, not a rider.
    remember, THE BLOOD OF KING PANACELEN RUNS IN CAVARALL AND THEINSFORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    hmmm… arya as rider fits. nothing else seeems to fit

    arya mates eragon despite age diff
    arya’s dragon mates saphira despite age diff

  561. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    i bet saphira kills eragon and arya have *** with orik and solumbum kills galby oromis and everybody and makes his own empire named Catsland and murtagh is gay n murtagh sleeps with nasuda n thorn makes out with gladeur n saphira n solumbum kills all dragons .

    JUST JOKING PPL.

    this is not a joke: i think orik will be the next dwarf king

  562. EragonEldestE***** Says:

    in the *** above i meant s**

  563. Lewis Says:

    why was eldest called eldest??

  564. Katie Says:

    who thinks that elva will not be a rider because i don’t. Because when eragon talks to her in the second book he says as soon as the war is over that he would reverse the blessing he gave to her. That means she can’t use her magic to grow older. So if she is the new dragon rider she would only be like 1 years old and a 1 yr old rider wouldn’t be that helpful would it.

  565. Lewis Says:

    no probably not

  566. Draco Says:

    I like this forum though

  567. Dani Says:

    Ok, lets just get one thing clear right know…. There are no gay characters in the Inheritance Trilogy.

  568. Dani Says:

    Man , i’ve been off for oh, 6 days. And let me say, i have just finished reading some of the stupidist ideas about the third book in the history of the internet!!!!!!!!! Gosh!
    Dude, in the speacial edition of eldest theres the preveiw of the third book, so i made a theroy about whats a gonna happen in the first 1/2 of the book. Not in a lot of deatail but you still get the picture, Right?
    Eragon, after the battle has a mind talky-thingy with oramis and eragon tells oramis about morzan and the battle, and requests permission to hunt the ra’zack. So then eragon sets of with roran on saphira to helingrid. they camp out for bout a night, the next morning they set up the mountion, follwin the slaves, cuz it was a full moon. So then they find the lair,{ it was hidden w/ magic} and the venture insiide. there they find a big chamber, and when there lookin around, they get sneaked attacked on by the lebertha thing. Eragon, along with saphira get drugged up, man, and some how get him to ur’ baen {not much detail} while roran, still in heligrid gets sent off to katrina cell, there they meet again, happy happy joy joy tears lovey lovey, all that crap. So, in like ur’baen gal is like toturin eragon, trying to get him to crack and stuff, and then, like, im not sure how or whobut either murtagh, or some body eles is a gonna realese him, and on his way out, he decides to,like steal the egg, ya know a” i here any way a might as well do” sorta kinda thing. So like, he steals the egg, and escapes on saphira and flys all the way back to the varden. While in heligrid, Roran and katrina have thought up some plan to escape. So they begin to escape, and then they meet the ra’ zack, kill one ra’zack and one lebetha, escape heligrid, go back to surda, and meet nasuada only a couple hours earlyer/later then eragon. So then, after being runighted again. Eragon leaves the egg with the varden and goes back to ellesmera, where he discovers that oramis and glader are on there death beds yadayadayada. So after reaciving some final instructions and word, Eragon flys back to surda, to discover that the egg has hathched to….

  569. Dani Says:

    Thats all i have. But you know how much thought i put into that!?! 🙂

  570. Dani Says:

    Oh, oops i misspelled a impotant word. Galabotorxis is torchering eragon, not toturin.

  571. Draco Says:

    Well Dani Wouldn’t it make just as much sense for the egg to be hidden within hellgrind itself…I mean what safer place than the razac’s lair. Were only someone on a flying steed can get into…If it was in Urabean, then alot of potential people could steal it…if in hellgrind only razac Galbatorix and now eragon and murtagh could possibly steal it.

  572. Phoenix Says:

    hey Dani you mispelled important to but thats ok and your summary makes some sense but i dont thnk that eragon and Saphira would get drugged up and i didnt even know there was a special edition to Eragon and let me tell you guys you stay off for a few days and the next thing i know theres like a hundred new comments

  573. Phoenix Says:

    ohh and Draco Gal wants it to hatch for someone soo i dont think he’d keep it Helgrind but im also nt sure hed keep it Ura’baen dont know i never really thought too hard on the fact b/c if the Varden want to steal the egg they would have to know where it is man i feel slow sometimes tell me if you guys figure it out

  574. Murtaghlover Says:

    This is just a thought but i really want Katrina to be the next rider because Arya is too obvious and I think that it would be too hard for Nasuada leading the varden and being a rider. I hope that somehow murtagh comes good because he is my fave character and i will be so annoyed if he dies.

  575. sean Says:

    christopher paolini said it would be obvios stupid

  576. ali Says:

    you guys you will never know ,why because you havent read the book stop thinking because there are freakin endless posibilities like nasuda becoming which is stupid you will never know unless you read book.might be right might me wrong.not very hard

  577. ali Says:

    this blog is freakin long it took me 39 minutes to read

  578. Justice Says:

    My friend and I are having a stupid argument over the pronounciation of Eragon’s former horse, Cadoc. I think the “a” would sound like the “a” in “apple”, so it wouls sorta sound like CAHdoc. She thinks the “a” is like “ate”, therefore making it CAYdoc. Could I get some opinions on that? It’s REALLY annoying us.

  579. Dani Says:

    Dude, My spelling average is like,45%.

    Justice;Man, that is a stupid argument, but thats not the stupidest thing i’ve heard on this site. I, and my sister, prononunce it CAHdoc.

    ali; if this blog took you only 39 minutes, you didnt read the hole thing.

    And does anyone know when its comin out? I’ve heard 3 dates. May 2007,
    mid-summer 2007, and may 2008. I’M CONFUSED!!!!

  580. Dani Says:

    Eragon29; How long did that really huge long coment take to wright? It would’ve taken me, like, 3 hours!

  581. Dani Says:

    lewis; Eldest is called eldest because on the burning plains { pg 652 } Murtagh said

    ” If I have become my father,then I will have my father’s blade. Thorn is my dragon, and a thorn he shall be to all our enemies. It is only right, then, that I should also wield the sword Misery. Misery and Thorn, a fit match. Besides, Zar’roc should have gone to Morzan’s ELDEST son, not his youngest. it is mine by right of birth.”

    And if you want to know why the trilogy is called Inheritance…

    Murtagh recoiled as if he Had been stung, his face going hard and cold. He lifted Zar’roc and held it upright before his chest. ” So be it. I take my INHERITANCE from you, brother. Farewell.”

  582. 2cool Says:

    Im with ya dani, WHEN IS IT COMMIN’ OUT.

  583. Lewis Says:

    And according to Shur’tugal the release date isn’t official yet but they guess at some point during summer 2007.

  584. Lewis Says:

    Is there a really nice person out there who would type up the 1st chapter of the final book?? 🙂

  585. Lewis Says:

    And has everyone seen the eragon movie chopper created by orange county choppers?? It was custom built for the New York Premiere but was instead sent to the London premiere instead. http://www.orangecountychoppers.com/occ/onairtheme.html
    and go to screen 6 of 6. Awesome bike!!

  586. Lewis Says:

    And does anyone have an old runescape account they could give me please?? if so add me @ fcblewcfc@hotmail.com!

  587. Katie Says:

    i was told that the third book is comig out september 2007 Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  588. Katie Says:

    does anyone know the EXACT date for it coming out in Australia

  589. nadia Says:

    I was thinking that brom being eragon father makes sense,
    Murtagh father is Morzan and he had a red dragon now murtagh has a red dragon, eragon is brom son so he has a blue dragon brom also had a blue dragon.

  590. smart one Says:

    the nekt dragon rider is and will be Irnstad and the titel will be Imperial and its true

  591. smart one Says:

    eragons father is morzan not brom nadia

  592. Dani Says:

    Lewis; Why do you want someone to type the first chapter????????

  593. Dani Says:

    Smartone; who the hec is irnstad and where the hec did you get the name Imperial?

  594. Dani Says:

    All the clues in the book do point to Brom being Eragons father, *sigh*. I thought that it was totally wierd amazingly rockin’ plot twist. But, theres to many clues, although, I found one mistake in phil “How were brom and selena able to have time to have, I mean, ‘make’ eragon”. The book saids many months, which, I understand is an unclear amount of time, but theres a cunadrum
    1) Selena was pregant when she left morzan to give birth to eragon. That would mean that Brom would have had to sneak in and do it with her.

    Also i found one gay character in the first book.

  595. nadia Says:

    dani really who is it?

  596. nadia Says:

    also paolini says that the next dragon rider is obvious.. and its not irnstad..he is not in the first book and he gives clues to who it is in both book and he is not in the first one.. and besides it not possible what ,akes you think he will be the next dragon rider?

  597. Katie Says:

    Dani- yeah who is the gay character
    Smart one- who the hell is Irnstad and Morzan may not be Eragon’s father because in the chapter called VISIONS NEAR AND FAR, Blagden comes up to Eragon and says ‘ Son and father alike, both blind as bats. I can prove that Eragon’s father is Brom because Brom was blind to what Morzan did. Eragon was the same with Murtagh. Blagden also says ‘While two may share two, And one of two is certainly one, One might be two. The first line is talking about Morzan and Selena who share two children ( Eragon and Murtagh). The second line means that Selena is definitely the mother of Eragon and Murtagh. The third line means that one father (Morzan) is not the father of both Eragon and Murtagh.

  598. Katie Says:

    So Brom must be Eragon’s father and he said in the first book he lost his sword and just before he died he said he was a dragon rider and his dragon was named Saphira. So he must have had a blue sword. And does anyone think that Evandar ( Arya’s dead father, Islanzadi’s husband) was a rider……..???

  599. nadia Says:

    hey do you guys think that they will amke a second movie, i mean the second movie ends with arya telling eragon that they will see each other tomorrow, so it is very possible, besides even though the cut alot of stuff out and it wasnt the best of many it was still very good, and it did make good money at the teathers..so lets hope that make eldest better and put more stuff in it, also i wanna see how they are going to do the whole eragon and roran switching…I really am waiting for the next movie, if they make one!!!:)

  600. nadia Says:

    I was thinking the same thing Katie, about arya’s father being a dragon rider, i mean they do say he died while figthing with Galbatorix, also it would make even more sense her being the next dragon rider.

  601. nadia Says:

    i am starting to get really mad at the people that keep saying that eragon was a bad movie…ok so they left alot of stuff out, and Orik was not in the movie( i heard that they are going to introduce him in the Eldest movie) katrina was left out of the movie..altough she could be easily introduced in the secon film when roran goes back to Carvahall….the Raazac died, brom death was quite different, hair colors sword gem(which by the way people shouldnt care so much about), the movie was about 1 hour and 30 min long(still dont understand why they didnt make it 2 hours or a little more) but it was still very intertaining and fun to watch..the problem with most of the people who read the book is that they expected everything in the book to be in the movie…so they didnt really enjoy the movie to its full potential…I heard they will make a second movie because edward spellers(eragon) said that he signed for all the three movies and is training for the other movies..the only thing i sak for for them to show a little more of murtagh and for the 2 movie to be longer than the first one..and if they think that the director of the first movie is not good enough for them to change him with someone who will do the job right.. also the movie ended with arya telling eragon that they would see each other back tommorow also at the end it shows galbatorix ripping up the map of algaesia with his sword and the black dragon…SO THEY WILL MAKE A ELDEST MOVIE!!!!!!!!!

  602. Katie Says:

    Nadia what country do u live in. I live in Australia and on one of our TV shows they rated the Eragon movie and gave it 2 and 1/2 stars out of five. Isn’t that just their opinion and they might not be mad fans of the Inheritance Trilogy . Anyways does anyone else come from Australia

  603. berowl Says:

    I don’t remember who asked it but in another post, a visitor said that the third book will be released the 13th of september in Australia.

  604. smart one Says:

    i am Christoper Paolini’s son so i know more then you do

  605. nadia Says:

    right…and we are really supposed to belived that?

  606. nadia Says:

    i live in United States..i am not saying the movie was awsome but other than that i enjoyed watching it.. and i heard it still made really good money.

  607. Naois Says:

    i haven’t read all of the comments (cuz there are a lot) but i think the 3rd book wont come out for awhile. also when ya’ll were talking about the romance between Arya and Eragon not being what Angela was talkin about, well i think it was, cuz i went and reread what she said and she told Eragon that she didn’t know if it was a happy ending or not. so i think that was the romance…although in the end she could love him back, but i think she already does.

  608. Dani Says:

    Smartone; paloni is like, 22. i think your the one who said that you have ritten some books so could understand his plot line or somthin. How could like, a 4 year old write books? a*s wipe. Ya know what beowl, we need a speel corrector botton on this site. Just a suggestion 🙂 .

  609. berethor Says:

    I think that the new rider will not be Arya. It will be an elf, but not Arya. The elf eragon sparred with might be the new rider. I think that eragon will kill Galbatorix releasing Murtagh from his promise to Galbatorix. The title of the third book will start with an E and it will have something to do with a character. Like Eragon the title of the first and Eldest refering to Murtagh being the eldest son of Morzan. The Vault of Souls will just be Brom and other dragon riders maybe people of Eragon’s past like his mother and Garrow showing him Galbatorix’s weakness. The elf that made Za’roc will make Eragon a new sword and give it to him when he leasts expects it. It will be close to when Aragorn in the last Lord of The Rings movie recieves Isildur’s sword.

  610. Dani Says:

    all right. the gay character is way in the begining of the first book. that jewerly seller that eragon trys to sell the egg to.

  611. Dani Says:

    Well, I mean, Gosh, the guy has a gotee, and, like sells jewlery. Come’on. ya ever walk into a jewlery store and see 2 guys behind the counter talkin bout cars? or women? They might be wareing rings, but not on the ring finger i’ll tell you that much. Also the book said somethin like he had a slight { insert big word here} the big word means he thought like, everyone he met was lower than him socialy. Also that round bed that CP desribed? Bet that hasnt seen much action.

  612. Dani Says:

    Arays father being a rider…i dont know. Possible, but unlikely. Something like that would have been mention early on in Deweldenvarden. Also, he was elf king. riders were figures of authority, seperate from any monarch or government. Also he died in battle going up against galbotrixs.

  613. Dani Says:

    dude, all this started 100 years ago, starting with gal killing the first rider, therefore brom/ morzan could be younger than 100. Also morzan and selena never married. therefore morzan is not related to roran in anyway shape or form

  614. skolir Says:

    when do u think thwe book comes out i want to know

  615. skolir Says:

    smart one he does not have a son hes like 20

  616. skolir Says:

    i think the name is endles

  617. skolir Says:

    i think in eldest the godets the restand form makeing a being made eragon born a humens adopted by dwarfs as a dragon ans changed to look like a elf

  618. smart one Says:

    im 5 and even tho i agree with Berethor i dont the elf whont make eragon a sword

  619. smart one Says:

    think of the meona tree he’ll get the sword from her becus he’ll sing to it and itll give him one with a blue blade

  620. smart one Says:

    just wait till july 29 2007

  621. Katie Says:

    smart one- u are talking complete gibberish and if u were paolini’s son he would tell u what was going to happen in the book anyway. so don’t be a retard

    smart one:
    and being paolini’s son would mean that he “made” you at the age of 13 supposing you’re around 7 (the proper age to type badly on a pc)

    remember, your father is 22 years old…, you’re not that smart…. lol^^

  623. Dani Says:

    Smartone; CP dosent have a son, if he did, CP would praobely deadicate the books to the son, and somewhere on the internet the CP son would be mentioned. And whose your mom then? CP aint married, so give it up before I sneak into your house at midnight, smash your computer over your head, cut off your limbs and head, and hide them under the floor boards! And dont say ” You dont know where I live” cause I have my ways of finding out!!!!!!!!!!! {Flying Monkeys, Attack!}

  624. Dani Says:

    Does anyone know how much the book is gonna cost when it comes out? Also does anyone know a good website where they post CP interviews directly?

  625. skolir Says:

    i think he finds broms old sowrd

  626. Katie Says:

    skolir- oh nah what do u think everyone probably thinks that
    dani- In Australia the first and second books were about $25 each but i don’t know how much the third one is going to cost…. maybe $30-$35 ???

  627. nadia Says:

    hey again paolini says the green dragon rider was going to be obvious, so i doubt it some character that is barely in the book like that elf eragon sparred with, besides i am pretty sure uts going to be a woman.

  628. dragonclaw Says:

    If Paolini says the green dragon rider is obvious, then I’m going with Arya. How much more obvious can you get?

  629. dragonclaw Says:

    I wonder what the green dragon’s name is going to be.

  630. dragonclaw Says:

    Here is a passage from the book Eragon page 275. He motioned for Eragon to bend closer. Very quietly, he whispered seven words from the ancient language, then even more softly told him what they meant.

    These are the last wise words of Brom. I think these words will have a big part to play in the last book, I can’t wait for it to come out.

  631. Eragon29 Says:

    Dani
    Which one, do you mean the poems or the one about shur’tugal
    I copied the longest one off of Shur’tugal

    Everyone, I will not be on again until about saturday so save your questions for me until then plz.

  632. berowl Says:

    As for me, I’m back from very good holidays.

    Thanks for commenting again on my site!!!
    Best wishes for this new year 2007!

  633. berowl Says:

    Dani:
    your resarchs for Paolini’s interview might be better by going here:
    http://www.alagaesia.com/news.htm

    but I havent found anything better since… sy

  634. Dani Says:

    Thanks berowl 🙂 I’ll check it out! Man, Im gettin a foot and 1/2 of snow here. Not fun.
    Most likely the last dragons names gonna be some weird long one which everyone pronounces in a different way and you get into an argument with your freinds about how its pronuonced and you dont find out how its prounonced untill the movie comes out { if they make the third book into a movie} oh, im wonderin, who said it was comin out july 29 07. No dates been set because hes not even done righting it yet!

  635. 2cool Says:

    has anyone noticed that maybe arya was in love with one of the guys she was transporting the egg with,i think his name was faolin or something like that, because she always talks fondley of him and he was the one that made arya her favourite flower. maybe thats another reason she takes eragon liking her badley.Another romance i found possible was,hang with me, murtagh and nasuada. in book 1 nasuada acts a little strange when she was giving him a message and then quickly changes the subject to eragon visiting murtagh. when eragon does murtagh wouldnt shut up about nasuada. if any of you reckon these romances are plasuable please tell me. IM BORED.

  636. 2cool Says:

    Another thing i reckon is that if the name of the third book isnt Enpire than maybe it will be the name of the last dragon.WHAT DO YOU RECKON!

  637. 2cool Says:

    Has anyone been to the official site, i have and it sucks

  638. skolir Says:

    i think that the rasak become like there parants and ron losses is bride

  639. Draco Says:

    Did anyone else notice how to book refered in a few places that Faolin could have been Arya’s quote un quote mate, Or however that would be refered to as for elves. Examples for this…When eragon and Nari are talking on the way to ellesmera in book 2, Nari says that Arya has sacrificed much for her people and that he won’t reveal anything without her permission. He says this before saying Guard your heart Argetlem, or close to that…Which could be refering to Her and Faolin, Also earlier when eragon asked arya about her traveling companions she openly talked about the one elf but wouldn’t talk about faolin…Could refer to bad memories…Also one more thing…When eragon brought the flowers to Arya’s room in ellesmera he saw two fairths on the wall one of which he recognized as her father and another of a younger elf he didn’t recognize also could be refering to Faolin…Give me your ideas.

  640. Draco Says:

    I posted this info on arya to reinforce what 2cool said…Here you go man I was thinking on this as well.

  641. Nik Says:

    I thought the next rider would be Roran or Arya….oh yeah…the Cover of the Book has got a Green Dragon on it so the 3rd egg definatly hatches….

  642. dom Says:

    in the third book if there is to be a dwarf rider it would be interesting if it were to be one of the or even possibly the chief of the Az Sweldn rak Anhuinbecause instead of the new rider to be an ally it could be an enemy?!?!

  643. Nik Says:

    Draco…when your rote that big long important message…i didnt get a word of it…
    My idea is that…someone close to eragon dies….like arya or roran…he goes to the vault of souls saves them bla bla…..his wepon from the menoa tree was his transformation cos he was sleeping under it so….maybe…..
    Roran rules once Ol’ Gal get beheaded…..cos King Palancar created everything…and his home was Palancar valley i think…..and Roran leads the Palancar valley so….why not?
    oh yeah and Murtaghs Dragon dies and then he goes crazy =P
    what do you think?

  644. dom Says:

    or the title to the third book could be ‘ENDING’ because, well its the last book in the series?!?!

  645. Draco Says:

    Well dom I was talking about Arya having a thing going on with Faolin…Basically backing up what 2cool said.

  646. dom Says:

    draco i wasnt sayin that the dwarf rider was instead of Arya it was a suggestion for the dwarf rider if there was to be one.

  647. Draco Says:

    lol I wasn’t refering to them being the riders Faolin was an elf traveling with arya

  648. Dani Says:

    yeah, Faolin , I think, was like, Aryas mate thingy

  649. Dani Says:

    DUDE who knows and who cares what the last title is. {Please dont hurt me!}
    Im sayin, there so many possibilities on what the title could be! Maybe we should lay off it for a while till we get some hard core facts about what its gonna be called. Just an idea but a smart one man.

  650. berowl Says:

    I’m creating a forum.
    What do you think?

  651. Dani Says:

    THE INHERITANCE TRILOGY HAS BECOME A CULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Isnt this your forum though?

  653. Eragon29 Says:

    Dani, youre right, it has become a cult. I am proud to be part of it too 😛 I will talk to yall later, berowl you can do anything you want on that blog of mine, (in case you didnt get my email

  654. dragonclaw Says:

    The title of the last book is likely to be empire or ending, but I think it might be something like Entrap, Enslave, Escape or Escort. Just a thought…

  655. Draco Says:

    I was thinking of Eridor.

  656. 2cool Says:

    thanks draco for backing me up, im kinda new to this.

  657. 2cool Says:

    by the way i just sent the last comment at 6:48 but the message sent it at 9:48, i hate daylight savings!is this forrum american or what because im australian!

  658. 2cool Says:

    Draco, who is “eridor”

  659. dom Says:

    he means ‘Eridor’ as the title being Eridor

  660. Draco Says:

    Eridor was the name of a dragon that brom listed in book 1

  661. berowl Says:

    Eragon29
    Don’t worry, I got your mail, I just don’t have the time now…

    Everyone
    Yes this is some kind of a forum and so many people have commented on it, but i think it’s hard now to visualise what people thinks about one subject or question. And somewhat I decided to create a true forum. And it will not be only about eragon. What do you think?

  662. Draco Says:

    I like that idea break it into sections.

  663. Argetlam Says:

    hey i think these are great ideas maybe we should write letters to paolini J/K but really someone should talk to the guy.
    most of your ideas are probable and very likely so keep up hope guys.
    also i would like to saw yes this is a cult and i hope it becomes a religion. INHERITANCE TRILOGY RULES!!!!

  664. Dani Says:

    Argetlam; it aint gonna become a religion.
    berowl; the ideas bout the sections is like, a totally awesomley sweet idea. And what do you mean by ”it wont just be about Eragon”?
    2cool; this forum is apparently francish.
    draco; Eridor might be the name of the dragon, but probaly not the book

  665. Dani Says:

    yeah, the last comment was like, typed at 3:36pm. totaly freaked up man!

  666. 2cool Says:

    does anyone think that maybe paolini will make the series longer but also make it maybe a hundred years after they beat galbotorix?this would be totally awesome but it would be better if it was when he was still young like now.

  667. 2cool Says:

    does anyone know his email?paolinis i mean, or maybe his officail website?

  668. 2cool Says:

    Dani, what the hell is ‘francish’

  669. 2cool Says:

    everyone have you noticed that on the spine of each book is an eye of the dragon on the cover, and on the page after the map in book 1 there is also an eye but it isnt the same as either of the dragons. i think this is the eye of the final dragon, what do you reckon.also the dragon eyes look friendly.

  670. 2cool Says:

    i have seen the movie and it was absolute dribble compared to the book. dont bother to see it.

  671. Draco Says:

    It was still good 😀
    For as long as it could have been.

  672. 2cool Says:

    draco what do you reckon about my ‘eye’ theorie

  673. 2cool Says:

    Hi ellie

  674. Draco Says:

    I agree with it 🙂

  675. Ragnarok Says:

    Could Katrina be the desendent of King Palanclar or whatever?

  676. dom Says:

    why is everyone complainin about the film,i mean yes it was different from the book and yes the film could’ve fitted more from the book into it. but has it ever crossed your mind that making films actually costs alot of money and and also many films are usually not at all like the book they originated from.personally i thought it was a great film and the special affects were brilliant.
    post on what u think about what i said.

  677. Katie Says:

    hmmmm
    ragnarok- i don’t know but it could be a possibility
    dom- i kind of agree with u there. every movie made has a set budget so they had to change some things so they would have enough money to do other things.
    2cool- i think ur eye theory is pretty good and i agree with wat u said.

  678. Dani Says:

    2cool; Francish, ya know, people and stuff who come from france. Duh 🙂
    also, the eye theroy is wrong. Jon Jude Palencar drew the eye. He’s the illustaightor for the inheritance trilogy. It was one of the original drawings. Paloni thought it was cool so put it on the cover/page. Paloni alco name king palencar/ palencar valley after him.
    ragnarok; anythings possible 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I wanna see the film, even though I heard it was crappy.

  679. Dani Says:

    berowl; I think its totaly rightously rockin awesome sweet that you have the smiley converter. Im lovein it man !!!
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  680. 2cool Says:

    Dani, isnt ‘French’ the proper term for people who live in france, and if this was a ‘french’ site wouldnt everyone be talking ‘french’.

  681. 2cool Says:

    and how do you get those smiley thingys

  682. 2cool Says:

    did you know that paolinis insperation for the books all came from were he lived, i saw some footage of his home town and its amazing, it looks exactly like the beors surounding his town, go to ‘http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Paolini’ and go down to interviews and select video clip. its really informative. there are other interviews as well, but this one really caught my eye.

  683. 2cool Says:

    Dani, are you australian?

  684. 2cool Says:

    yay i did it

    Dani
    lol, well the smileys are quite simple^^

    😉 “;)” 🙂 “:)” 😛 “:-P” 😦 “:(” 8) “8)”

  688. lawzz Says:

    in the dream in deathwatch it also mentions a man on the beach screaming. i think this is murtagh screaming for forgiveness or maybe his dragon turns on him and goes with eragon saphira and (other rider) on the boat.

    also in the elven raven’s riddle he mentions the words “father like son, blind as a bat” later it says that brom was blind to morzans betrayel. also eragon was blind to murtagh’s betrayel… leaving a small hint i would say 😉

    it says in eragon that brom told saphira many things that she would not share with eragon nitl the time was right. i think brom might have told her he was eragons father. i know ur thinkin “no hes not morzan is” well maybe murtag doesnt know and he only said morzan was eragons father in the ancient language because he believed so much for it t be true.

    also with the menoa tree buisness. its obvious. when you need a weapon look under the roots of a menoa tree. he needs a weapon after zar’rok was taken from him. whn your power is insufficiant. well compared to murtaghs magic eragoon’s wasnt very good. and galbatorix’s will be much more powerful. back to the menoa tree. what if it didnt mean literly look into the roots. maybe it meant something else. i looked up roots in the dictionary and it said “origon” maybe eragon will have to look into the origon of the menoa tree meaning the start which was the women that pressed herself to the tree. maybe she had relatives and the family of them still existed m,aybe they have the weapon needed. the 7 wors brom told eragon before he died might have been a password for eragon to say to the family just to make sure he inherited from its old owner… becasue ayra and rhunen sed that some familys salvaged swords from the riders that had lost them. what if, brom had asked this family to keep his safe so when the time came the heir (broms son) could look into the roots of the menoa tree! and i think eragon is brom’s son…

    btw the release date for E—– is not 2008 its summer 2k7

    ak.

  689. josh Says:

    has enyone thourt about the urgal who was eragons bodygaurd in the last battle being a dragin rider, it the most unexpected thing ever to happen and it would be totaly cool

  690. sean Says:

    if any one of you ever argue about the next dragon rider again il castrate you its gonna be arya roran or orik

  691. Mitch Says:

    i think arya will go with eragon and roran to helgrind to help save katrina.Thats where the egg and the vault of souls will be and arya will hold the egg and it will hatch for her.

  692. chickenman Says:

    i hate the movie eragon. saphire is not a chicken

  693. Mitch Says:

    i think arya will go with eragon and roran to helgrind to hlp save katrina. then thyl find the dragon egg and vault of souls then arya will pick up the egg and it will hatch for her. eragon will use the souls to become more powerful

    just a thought

  694. 2cool Says:

    Josh, that would really annoy me if it was the urgal, i really want arya to be the next rider. But anythings possible.

  695. shvang Says:

    hi guys i am back after suchhh a long time and reading all the comments took me some time.
    😉 8)

  696. berowl Says:

    I’m glad to see you back shvang!!

  697. josh Says:

    i think most peaple wants arya to be the next dragon rider i just thourt if it did happen it would be cool

  698. lawzz Says:

    i suppose what could happen is when eragon an roran rescue katrina she falls in love with eragon (going back to that guys ppoint near the satrt that katrina could be royal from carvahall) and leave together on the boat wit roran screaming in the background. but that would suggest that katrina was the next rider which is unlikely. i also think that it is unlikely that ayra is the next rider. she is an elf princess who is trained alot in swordsmanship and magic. i dont think they wld want to make her anymore powerful.

    ak.

  699. Eragon29 Says:

    So, Shvang, You can’t say that elves aren’t immortal now. You can read the passage in the book if you want. That is all for now

  700. chris shade77 Says:

    ok i have been gone for a while thinking of all the rumors floating around the chat rooms. let me just say and clear up 1 subject NASUADA WILL NOT BE THE NEXT RIDER!! OK IT WILL BE ARYA

  701. chris shade77 Says:

    lets sum things up a bit my way :} remeber these are all theories

    who will kill gabatorix?

  702. dragonclaw Says:

    I reckon either Eragon or Murtagh

  703. shvang Says:

    hi guys
    eragon29:ok i was wrong that i am sorry but still i am reading lord of the rings to see if i can crack any codes (8))

    visit me on my new forum http://talkbooks.editboard.com

  704. daniel Says:

    WHEN IS THE BOOK GOING TO BE RELEASED

  705. sean Says:

    no one knows dan no one knows

  706. Murtaghlover Says:

    Hi people I think that Roran will be the next kill wen gal dies. Did anyone else realise that the movie was so different from the book and i think that the book is soo much better. Garrett Hedlund is sooo hot

  707. 2cool Says:

    i know, i hated the movie because it reckon it killed the book,
    You know how in the second book eragon sees this dwarf who has these wierd knuckle buster thingys, well i reckon eragon will get them.
    What do you reckon? 8);)

  708. lawzz Says:

    it wwont be ayra! she is already too powerful and that would just overdo it making her a rider.

    ak.

  709. cat Says:

    I know it sounds really not likely, but I have a reason why Vanir might be the next rider. You know how Eragon and Murtagh both had fathers who were riders? Maybe Vanir’s father is Orimis. Who knows

  710. 2cool Says:

    that just got me thinking,that might really happen cool

  711. dragonclaw Says:

    Yeah, that is really possible, I would’ve never thought of that.

  712. Dani Says:

    😉 🙂 😛 😦 8) rockin man. I thought you might 4get me. Ive bin away for 5 days.
    2cool; I’m USAian. Also the creator is in paris, not sure if hes french though, cuz he speaks awesome enghlish.
    Eragon wont get the weird dwarf knuckle things because he could lose movment in his hand. Dude, has anyone thought bout what happened to sloan, katrinas dad? I know no one cares but, I just was wonderin cuz the ra’zack gots him to. If Vanir is Oramis’s son, who was the mom? I think that Eragon will kill gal, but i dont know.

  713. sean Says:

    i know you guys aint been istnen to me lateley but i think you should go to algesia.com and you can talk to cp hope you listnen

  714. Draco Says:

    Vanir isn’t oromis’s son because for oromis to have a mate it would have had to been before the Wrydfell and Vanir was born later than arya…He is young in comparison to alot of the elves. That and Oromis lives in solitude. So I dont’ think he will be.

  715. Dani Says:

    draco; where are you from, and is that your real name? cuz if it was, youd be like from england.
    dude, Christipher Paloni has like, 11 million fans world wide. Hes not gonna listen to one fan, inless your like the president of the fan club, or a relitive/ best freinds with him, or your dying and make-a-wish foundation sets you up with him, or your threating somthing/someone of his { dont get ideas}. Can someone pleaseeeeeeeee explain to me who the he*l vanir is, and how do you prounce his name.

  716. dragonclaw Says:

    Vanir is the elf that Eragon swordsfights with in Eldest, the one who was always rude to him.

  717. sean Says:

    you pronounce it vaneer

  718. Murtaghlover Says:

    When they make an eldest movie it is going to be so hard for them because they missed out so many important people that are in the book like Katrina, the twins, Orik, Elva, Jeod none of them were even mentioned

  719. Superfly Says:

    I was wondering is endles out in book stores or?

  720. chris shade77 Says:

    back to suming things up ok my way

    who will kill galbatorix?
    Well oBviouly it will probably be eargon but this may suprise you but many people think it coulkd be shruiken. Posiibly out of rage shruikan would kill galbatorix but trust me it will probably be eragon

    Who will be Saphiras mate?
    defiantley the green dragon. Theres no way thorn or glaedr will be it. First of all glaedr has already shown that he has no interest in saphira as a mate and thorn is not even on eragon and saphiras side so it will not be him the green dragon seems to fit.

    Who will die?, and who will live?
    personally i think thorn will die and murtagh live on. I also think oromis may die along with a bunch of other people like jormender and aryas mother. yadadadadaad eragon will live on thats obvious though he will leave alagesia. and of course Galbatorix will die. when galbatorixs dies so willhis dragon so if i were shruikan i wud not kill him!!

    what will the blessed child to in the 3rd book?
    i think she will be of great importance do to the fact that shes what like 3 and can already walk talk and many other important things for the varden.

    will katrina die?

    maybe but i doubt it what i think will happen when eragon and roran invade helgring goes a little like this: they storm the place eragon shows of his magic to roran roran looks like a little girl k then they slog through the razacc rescue katrina and get out. no she will not die.

    who will be the next rider?

    OK JUST TO SHOW HOW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SO STUPID ABOUT THIS WHOLE SUBJECT I WILL PUT IT ALL IN CAPS. OK NO THE 3RD RIDER VWILL NOT BE KATRINA CMON READ THE BOOK NO IT WILL NOT BE NASUDA AGAIN READ THE BOOK NO IT WILL NOT BE SOLEMBUM OK JUSTKIDDING ON THAT 1 BUT PLEASE PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT. tHE ANSWER IS ARYA SHE IS REALLY THE ONLY 1 FIT FOR THE JOB NASUDA IS LEADING THE VARDEN RORAN IS ONOT EXPIERENCED IN MAGIC ENOUGH AND FINNALY KATRINA HAS HER OWN DUTIES. iT WILL BE ARYA SHE IS GREAT IN ALL THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BECOMING A RIDER FOR INSTANCE GREAT LINEAGE NEXT GREAT STRENGTH AND POWER IN MAGIC AND COMBAT. ARYA FITS IT ALL PEROID!!!!!!

    who will be the next dwarf king?

    Obviouly orick ok this may spark some anger in the clans but oh well hes basiclly the heir to the throne

    REMBER THESE ARE ALL THEORIES AND NO IF YOU FIND SOME PROBLEMS IN THE THEORIES I AM SORRY I DID NOT REREAD THE ENTIRE 2 BOOKS.

  721. Dani Says:

    Thanks dragonclaw and sean.
    chris shade77; what is lineage? I’m a little bit stupid. Maybe more than a little. Alot. SHUT UP!!! allright man, gosh. Dude, Eragon and roran arent gonna storm helingrid.
    Also, saphira might mate with thorn, cuz she might not have a choice. That would suck
    ALOT!!!!

  722. Dani Says:

    I have, like the greatest idea ever! OK, like, 1/2 the people are gonna die 1/2 way through the book, from an atomic bomb, and the rest of the book is about the ghosts of the dead people haunting the living people, driving them so insane they all commit suiside! 😉 Man I’m so sick. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  723. 2cool Says:

    i just had the best idea that sounds really possible, maybe the razac stole katrina on purpose because she might be related to someone specail or watever, and they took her to galbotorix so they can see if the egg hatches for her and it does!i partly just said that to annoy chris shade 77 , but it is possible

  724. 2cool Says:

    HEY BEROWL, WHAT NATIONALITY ARE U.and were is this forum your making?:)

  725. Draco Says:

    Dani you can be quiet lol because in the sneak peak in the new eldest they are in the process of storming hellgrind you nub 😛

  726. berowl Says:

    2cool:
    I’m from france. And the forum is more complicated than I thought, so I think I’ll forget it…

  727. Going Crazy Waiting!03 Says:

    Hi! i’m new! I recently read trough all of the comments… wow it took me two days!
    I do agree that arya and elva both stand a good chance of becoming the third rider of the green dragon. Arya becase her magic is green and she is an elf. thre only thing that counts against her is the fact that she has to take over for Islanzadi if she (Islanzadi) is killed in battle aginst Galbatorix.
    I belive that Elva has a good chance because Eragon blessed her (even if it was a bad blessing, she was still blessed by a Rider) and Saphira marked her with the gedwey ignasia. Plus she grows and learns at an impeccable rate and should be capable of taking up the mantle of the Dragon Riders.
    Concerning Roran…i believe he will become king of Alagaesia when Galbatorix falls because the people will want a king who is not immortal.
    Murtagh however is going to die either way…if he does not betray Galbatorix and has to fight Eragon, Eragon will be forced to kill him for the good o Alagaesia and humanity. if he does betray Galbatorix, the consequences of his actions will be dealt with severly by Galbatorix because he does not have use for a Rider that will betray him.

  728. Dani Says:

    Draco; Whats a nub? And besides, Roran and eragon arent storming heligrid, they simply enter it planing to kill the razack/ planing to rescue katrina. “Storming the place” would be to go somewhere, enter it voilently, all screaming and crap, and it would require more than 2 people.
    dude, where did everyone go? only a, like, 4-7 people are writing there stuff every day. When I first came on, like, 10-17 people were writing theyre stuff a day. if any ones interested im on, like, from any where from 3pm to 5pm {california time, you do the math} if you want to talk. My emails not working, so im on this site using my brothers girlfreind email. ill get a new account in about 2-7 days.

    Berowl, how do you know how to speak english so well?and does anyone know a place on the internet were you can read the ‘sneak peak’?and did anyone go to the website i reckomended and see the interview it was at ‘http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Paolini’ and just go down the page to interviews.8)

  730. nadia Says:

    hey guys, a lot of time i dont wtite, you guys have really good theories so far.

  731. Gingerale2711 Says:

    just a thought, if shruikan’s choosen rider was killed(by galbatorix or morzan, i think), how is shruikan still alive? doesn’t a dragon die if its rider dies?

  732. Gingerale2711 Says:

    by ‘choosen rider’ i mean the rider shruiken hatched for; the one he choose while he was in his egg

  733. Dani Says:

    Gingerale2711; dragons dont die when theyre riders die, just like riders dont die when theyre dragons die. Oftenly the other commits suicide out of lonleyness, but Gal was able to bind shurkin with himself using evil magic.

  734. Gingerale2711 Says:

    o, i guess i misread something

  735. 2cool Says:

    dani your wrong oromis said that the pain kills the dragon because they are mentally linked and also when the other half dies pretty much half of there conciousness disapears or somethen like that.;-)

  736. Gingerale2711 Says:

    2cool: thats wat i thought. lol

  737. Gingerale2711 Says:

    so how is shruikan alive? Was he not connected to his choosen rider long enough to be effected by that, or someting

  738. kelly Says:

    i may just be repeating what others have said but there is too much to read.

    i think murtagh dying is a likely possibility, possibly eragon saves him then when they try to kill galbatorix murtagh dies, roran taking over from galbatorix as the king could be a possibility too.

    ive noticed someone posted eragon meeting his mother, all i can say to anyone thinkin that read the books!

    across the internet i have noticed people referring to morzan being eragorns father like murtagh said, my favourite theory on this is no he is not his father, but yes eragon and murtagh are HALF brothers. i always thought from the first few chapters that brom could be his afther but that is only a guess.

    also to 2cool his link to wikipedia, i wouldnt be taking much on that site seriously.

    thanks =] x

  739. nhymstraldragon Says:

    i rekon with the poem
    “while tow may share two,
    and one of two is certainly one,
    one might be two”.

    murtagh and eragon both share the same mother, and one father (brom and morzan) could the the father of one of them (brom eragon, and morzan murtagh) they would definately have a father who was a rider since there has never been told of a female rider, one father may be two. this thought occurred to me when i was reading eragon and eldest again. selena during the time the forsworn are still at large disappears for certain amount of time. murtagh seems to think that she is doing something for his father but she ciould have gone to the varden and perhaps she and brom are the parents of eragon. also i think that oramis and saphira know about this but havén’t told eragon because he is too young to hear certain info. they probably didn’t want him to know yet because it would disrupt his training as a rider


  740. at this site there is a section where you can become a dragon rider and trade eggs until you find an egg that will hatch for you.

    it also has some great sceensavers and heeps of other cool stuff.

    cya

  741. nhymstraldragon Says:

    http://www.eragonmovie.com. sorry i forgot to put nin the web add

  742. kelly Says:

    nhymstraldragon exactly the poem ‘while tow may share two, and one of two is certainly one, one might be two’ explains it perfectly.

    and also with what you said about oromis and saphira…it is possible. saphria and oromis both know much before eragon, such as brom being a rider, saphira could just tell. so i definently think that the fact of what eragon doesn’t know and what others does is a major part of the books.

  743. kelly Says:

    just been reading what some people have said before, does it actually say that galbatorix’s dragon had a rider before him…all i can remember is that his dragon was wild?

  744. berowl Says:

    2cool:
    well, you know, at first I used to hate english as my father worked in england for a time, and I never saw him, and when I did, he spoke in english with me. When time of college came, I realised I was better than anyone in my class, thanks to my father. So I studied a lot and read many books in english (all Harry Potters and Inheritance, the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit….). And now, when I meat an stranger lost in Paris, I can help him. When I got my holidays in England, I’ve no problems. Even now, I don’t have to learn english anymore but I still practice it. (I’m 20 years old by the way, my level can be explained). Anyway, thanks for telling me.

    To all:
    It’s been a while since I have’nt come around, and I appologize, I had to manage some stuff for my nursery school. But I’m glad people still come here and comment^^. But I think we all must be patient ’cause there’s no news at all at this moment, since december…. amazing.
    Well, thank you to all. I’m very glad and proud that you come here!

    (ps: I’m learning japanese)

    berowl

  745. Gingerale2711 Says:

    kelly: i thought it said that morzan (i think) killed shruikan’s old rider, but i have been wrong before. i think it said that galbatorix stole a dragon hatchling from the riders and why would the riders have a wild dragon hatchling?

  746. Gingerale2711 Says:

    http://inheritance.wikia.com/wiki/Shruikan this is a website i found online and it says that shruikan’s true rider was killed but it doesn’t explain how shruikan is alive 😦

  747. berowl Says:

    I think shruikan is still alive because his rider is not dead! I think this rider is the Blind man. Remember when Eragon meet Angela for the first time and she reveals him to whom she already made predictions: he, eragon, his mother, and a blind man. I think it’s him. I don’t see who else it could be…

  748. kelly Says:

    good point berowl, it doesnt quite make sence but im sure the next book will explain it, i just wish it would come out tomorrow!!

  749. 2cool Says:

    i know and thanks berowl for explaining how you learnt english, at the moment im learning indonisian but im not that good yet

  750. sean Says:

    what does that have to do with eragon

  751. kelly Says:

    2cool bit off subject but my friend is indonesian and so im learning too [from her]

  752. Gingerale2711 Says:

    berowl: good idea, do u remember if i said for a fact in either book if shruikan’s rider was killed? I only know one language 😦

  753. Murtaghlover Says:

    Thats is a really good idea berowl i never would have thought of that!!!! (Hey kelly and 2cool also bein off the subject i am learnin Indo 2!) After a bit of thinkin i reckon that the next rider will be arya becuase i cant think of anybody else it could be

  754. Draco Says:

    hehe Berowl everyone listens when you say it but not me :P.

  755. Phoenix Says:

    hey berowl that makes really good sense actually i never would have thought of thatand by the way doesnt Eragon still have to back to Ellesmera for more training i mean hows Paolini going to fit in the rest of his training them going to save katrina fighting the final battle solving the arya/eragon relationship and the eragon/murtaugh dilema i tell you this is going to be one hell of a long book

  756. AxelRogue Says:

    Dur to the length of this blog, I have meandered, but not read all entries. Thus stated, here are my thoughts:

    1. Galbatorix’s dragon is only held under his control due to spells. The color of his dragon is black. If the spells are broken, would this be the mate for Saphira?

    2. Is there a coincidence that the blessed child’s color is also black? If the breaking of the spells do not kill the black dragon (or the fight he will be in with Eragon & Saphira), will the black dragon allow this child to touch him to be his intended rider?

    3. Arya will be the green dragon’s rider.

    4. Nasuada and King Ornis (??) will be killed. Roran’s promenence as mighty warior and chieftain of Carvahall will sweep him into becoming a national hero and the Kingship. Yes, he & Eragon will defeat the Raz’acs, rescueing Roran’s fiancee.

    5. Orik will become the king of the Dwarves, but only by a slim margin due to the some of the clans take on his familiarity towards the Dragon Riders.

    I do have more, but would like to see comments on these proposals.

    Thank you,

  757. berowl Says:

    -I don’t think Gal’s dragon will mate with Saphira because she does’nt understand how a dragon could serve a Forstmoon or even Gal even with spells, it’s unnatural to her.

    -I don’t think there’s a link between people’s color and dragon’s color, I don’t recall having read that Eragon’s skin color was blue…

    -Arya being the next rider is endeed THE most probable theory so far.

    -Why not for Roran becoming the next King of Alageasia, and the Razac’s fall due to eragon and roran rescuing Katrina. But I don’t think Nasuada will die. she has a rule to complete, she too can become the next rider, I don’t know about her nor King Hortarr (??) lol

    -Hightly probable theory for Orik.

  758. Murtaghlover Says:

    Hey i just had a thought say if Murtagh turned on gal killin him would the oath still stand and Murtagh still die cause gal is dead??????

  759. Dani Says:

    Hola! i speak spanish and english. I’m taking spanish in shcool, though i learn more spanish walking to walmart than i do in 3 semesters of spanish. 🙂 When i was little i use to speak german cuz i was living with my moms side of the family, I only remember a couple words,though.
    The pain the dragon feels from losing its rider is only, like, mental, not phisical. i dont think the blind man could be shurkins rider. I think that gal would make sure that the rider died, so that the hachling woulnd try to escape back to its rider. The blind man might have been a rider. dude, it would be possible for general of the varden army to,like, die{not nasuada} and have roran take over.

  760. 2cool Says:

    i have been thinkin hard about the name of the next book and i thought it possible that paolini wanted the the first 2 books to start with E, but maybe it was just a bonus they both had 6 letters to. maybe because the next book is green as well as the dragon,that he might call the book EMERALD. what do you reckon?
    bye the way ‘Murtagh lover’ what country are you from and who are you learning english from.

  761. 2cool Says:

    sorry i mean Indonesian

  762. AxelRogue Says:

    More thoughts:

    If the blind man had been the intended rider of Shrui’kan (and has the shining hand as proof – which it does not state in book 1), wouldn’t Galbatorix keep close tabs on him say locked away? One thing repeated, if a rider dies, so does the dragon!

    Does the death of a participant of an oath negate the oath that was given in the ancient tongue? If the answer is no, then Murtagh will have die trying to keep the oath. If the answer is yes, then there is the poosibility that Murtagh could live a long life as a rider.

    In book 2, when Nasuada visited Elva, the blessed child, the room had dark (or black) hanging. I was not referring to the skin color. I was in a hurry earlier, I should have added this point.

  763. Lord Daegon Says:

    A lot of people say that Roran is the next rider because Paolini wrote from his point of view but remember that if he didnt write from his view it would be so weird that roran showed up in the middle of a battle with all of carvahall.

    Axel rogue, Everyone knows that nasuada is black, there are so many sentences stating it.

  765. Murtaghlover Says:

    2cool i am Australian and I am learnin Indoesian at skool and thanx axelrouge your second comment was great because i have been wonderin about the oaths for a while. Does anybody else think that Orimis and Gladr will die??

  766. cat Says:

    I think they will, but I also think it would be cool if they spent the last of their life fighting with the varden in the final battle or something.

  767. Gingerale2711 Says:

    i’m not sure about murtagh’s oath thing, but i want him to be able to be good sooner or later and i want him to live. do u think that (if the blind man is shruiken’s choosen rider) that the blind man might have had to go into hiding after his dragon was taken and that is why he isn’t in gal’s jail? and dani, i am pretty sure that a dragon dies if its rider dies and that it is physical as well as mental.

  768. Gingerale2711 Says:

    i am not sure about oromis and glaedr dying but i guess that makes sense. i don’t know how they will die though

  769. Dani Says:

    I think orimis is going to die in duweldenvarden, and have gladear die shortly afterwords. I think that orimis is,like, gonna be on his deathbed and all and eragons gonna be their and like orimis is gonna tell eragon that brom is,like is father.
    And how is it that a rider can still be alive if the dragon dies, but not the other way around? And as i’ve siad before, gal would have made sure that shurkins rider is dead, because he wouldnt want shurkin to try and escape. Also, if his rider was alive, shurkin would have found out, and if shurkin knew it, dont you think that gal would have found out? riders and dragons can enter each others head, and find out what their thinkng. The emotions that shurkin would feel, finding out that his rider was alive, would be very powerful and gal would have sensed that, and gone and killed the rider. Also, from the authors point of view, looking at the plot, there is no reason to keep shurkins rider alive, the rider would be incredibly old by now. also, it saids that gal stole shurkin as like, a hatchling, so we must asume that the rider would have been just 10 and not have any knowledge of magic, or swordmenship, or anything that could haved helped the varden at all{we asume that if he were to be alive he would fight for the varden} And I repeat, the pain the dragon feels if the rider is hurt would be purely mental, having not recived any wounds to the phisical flesh.
    Concerning the blind man, there are 2 possibilities for what he could be:
    1) He could be a rider{not shurkins}. he was able to speak with soleabum. And, if angela was an ex-rider{ this I belive} he could have walked into the store wanting to talk to her about the varden, “old times”, and whatever else. This is very unlikley for him to talk to angela and all, but it is very unlikly for him to be a rider at all! For the simple reason that angela did not reonize him. He may have looked like any other blind beggar. But, like all dragon riders{ after a cetain point in there training} know to open they’re minds and to look everywhere with their minds when entering a knew situation. And, even if angela is not a rider she is a witch and would feel the mind brushing up against hers and would proabely realized it at once. Now you may say that this theory would also apply to soleabum, and thats why he would talk to him. Now this may be true, but most likley he was just bored and wanted to talk to someone, and knew that know one would belived a blind beggar. i know this is sorta lame, but thats the only escuse I could thik of.I dont really need escuses, because number 2 explains it all!
    2) the blind beggar, which soeabum supposedly talked to, has no impact on the story whatsoever.he was merely put in by Paloni toshow that soleabum rarley talked to anyone, and he wanted somone else to talk to soleabum, not just his selena. we must remeber people, that not every single detail in the inheritance trilogy carries a huge impact with the plot. Some do, I give you that, but Paloni would have to through in many little details to cover up the important details that do carry impact. he wants to through us of coarse so that we do go on talking about little stupid things so that when we actually read the book,we are all going to go “OMG I never saw that one coming!!!!
    So lets just stop talking about the stupid blind beggar. All right?

  770. Dani Says:

    That comment took me 50 minutes to write, amd i put alot of thought into it. I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  771. Murtaghlover Says:

    Hi everybody earlier on somebody was ruling out people for the next rider by sayin that a rider has had to use magic before. That is completly stupid did Eragon use magic before he was a rider. Not that we know of. I also think that Elva will have a lot to do with the next book. You know how in Eldest Paolini wrote from Eragons, Nasuadas and Rorans perspetive next time i hope he includes Murtaghs so we can find out all thats been happenin in Urabean (soz i think i spelt that wrong)

    does anyone know when the third book will come out?

  779. Phoenix Says:

    Alrite first i just want to say that whoever it was that said that Eragon’s urgal bodyguard could be the next rider he died so i dont think thats probable
    Here are my theories so far
    – Murtaugh will kill Gal releasing him from the spell (hopefully)
    -Eragon will go with Roran to find Katrina and kill the razzac in the process
    -Oromis will die after helping Eragon do some big task (not sure what yet)
    -Saphira will mate with Murtaughs dragon
    -Arya and Eragon will finally get together
    -Eragon
