Book Sales, Contest Winners, Podcast Number, New Staff

Lots of site updates! Firstly, the online book sale of personalized and autographed (by Christopher Paolini) copies of Eragon and Eldest (Limited Edition) will end on December 5th. All orders placed on or before December 5th will arrive to you on time for Christmas! Also, new support/contact information for the Shur’tugal Store can be found on this page (includes an email address and new phone number). Information on clothing will be posted soon!

Second – winners for the Eragon Sweepstakes have been announced! Shur’tugal, sponsored by Vivendi Universal Games and Master Cutlery, recently launched a sweepstakes asking fans to answer nine questions taken from Eragon and Eldest. The eleven winners have been contacted (and for privacy reasons, their names won’t be posted) and won one of the following prizes: two XBox 360s, four Eragon movie replica swords, five Eragon video games. Big thanks to Vivendi and Master Cutlery for sponsoring this contest, and congratulations to our winners!

We recently purchased a phone number for Shurtycast voicemails. If you’re a Shurtycast listener (Shurtycast is’s official podcast, which can be listened to for free – more information here), you can now call (this is a USA number): (201) 984-1391. Please note, your normal calling rates will apply.

Lastly, we have finally finished sifting through all of the recent staff applications and have made our decisions. Unfortunately, we received too many applications to reply to the ones we were unable to accept at this time, but we do thank everyone who took the time to apply! A warm welcome goes to our new staff members, who we’re sure you’ll see around the site in the future!
