  • GreenGemsDragonRider

    When I click on either of the links I get an error message.

  • Alfakyn

    I tried to enter in round three, but each time I clicked on either of the two links to the entry forms, all that popped up was an error message. I would really like to enter, so please either fix this problem, or, if I’m doing something wrong, point me in the right direction.

  • Jebus

    I hope the 4 book comes out SOON!

  • meeple

    Okay it’s February I think there might be a glith on the sight

  • hello?

    does any body know when the winner is going to be announced? I have read other comments and they asked the same thing. since i entered today i wonder if I’m to late 🙁

  • Hannibal

    Okay, so it’s a wee over 2 MONTHS since they opened Round 3…WHY HASN’T IT CLOSED??? Is there a problem with their program, have they temporarily run out of books to give away…WHAT IS GOING ON? It’d be courteous of them to let us know what is going on. Besides, I wanted to see if I could get lucky and win one of the books through this contest but at the rate it’s progressing, I think I’m just better off going out and buying them. Can’t wait forever.

  • guest

    is it still on it’s like january 24th and it has been on sin how long idc if they tell us who won but i wld like 2 no wen it’s over XD

  • Sunbladedrgn

    Are they still doing this? I’m not sure if I need to submit again or not. I don’t remember having a problem the first time I submitted, but it was after I submitted that they made the announcement about having ‘issues’. I’m worried that if I submit again, and the first time DID go through…then I’ll be disqualified 🙁

  • annie

    Tomorrow is the new year, I think today would be a good day to close round three…

  • personperson

    It’s December 25, why hasn’t it closed yet

  • Jigglypop

    Yes, I agree, it really has been a while. And its still open….. ^_^

  • billy

    ya this is rediculous why dont they update the website

  • Nathan

    Ok guys, it’s been almost a month now. When is Round 3 going to close??? We still have 2 more rounds left to get to!!!

  • Isabella666

    hi im new to this so anyway,i just wanted to

    ask Christopher Paolini if he’s close to finishing

    the fourth book.I’v been dying to read it and i can’twait till it comes out.

  • ShurtugalLiam

    lol, point taken feanarang. I keep forgetting to cross reference things from eragon, eldest and brisingr to the interviews lol XD and i think Arya would make a fine rider, she does seem the most appropriate candidate, with roran right after. However, as equally possible for eragon and saphira to retrieve another dragon egg, it make take most of book4 to grow and train etc, and i think the egg could just as well hatch for another one of galbatorix’s men.

  • Joanna<3

    So… just a question: do we get to know who wins these books ever?
    thank-you for being so great shurtugal staff 😀

  • Evarinya

    Oh you people and your interresting ideas xD

  • MeghanSwiftSword

    Happy belated Thanksgiving!

  • feanarang


    When asked about the green dragon egg fragments in the chapter you referred to, CP didn’t even remember them. Those egg fragments are simply left over from the war between the dragons and elves.

    If they came from a wild dragon that was going to show up in Book IV, don’t you think CP would have remembered them? That’s kind of important, lol.

    Oh, and speaking of the forums, whenever I go on, I keep getting messages saying that my antivirus program has blocked a threat. So maybe it’s better that you can’t get on, lol. If someone could look into that (Bob, Mike?) I’d appreciate it!

  • Jade&Ophelia

    Yeah that’s so what I thought when I read that part. However, now I think that Paolini was trying to trip us up- to make us think the green dragon had already hatched. I don’t think it has, it was just a fragment. Also, I think Alagaesia needs a Rider, a powerful Rider. A wild dragon might not be willing to help, and aren’t most wild dragons gone (as far as we know)?

    What do you guys think of Arya for the new green Dragon Rider. She’d be cool and everything but it would be very, very cliche, considering all the speculation about her.

  • ShurtugalLiam

    my last comment comment was to sirsimon 🙂

    is no-one online during the day? what time would it be in america when its 2.35pm ?? cause its that time here now 😛 lol

  • ShurtugalLiam

    omg yeah … that would be good, but wouldnt Brom have discovered the eldunari when he worked undercover in Morzan’s estate? And happy thanksgivings Americans and Canadians (if you celebrate it! XD)

    and i am sort of hoping that the green egg fragment eragon finds when helping saphira on “broken egg and scattered nest” lol, and maybe its a wild dragon, but chooses to help the Varden, possibly bonding with Arya 😛 sorry for my extravagent theories haha! i need to somehow get onto the forums 🙁 but it doesnt send me an email verifying my account though ….

  • PadfootUnewraithSlayer

    I bet Galby has alot of phobias like that. ;D


  • Jade&Ophelia

    That’s a great idea, sirsimon. I never thought about his castle :D. Though, with the green egg I’ve always thougth it be on 24/7 guard, considering Galbatorix’s possible phobia for it. Lol.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  • Maco

    Mostly because I want to beat Mike to it, I’ll be the first to say: Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Firestone

    Actually, in fact false names do not determine anything. They are still shipped to the address, and whoever entered by that name in the contest would get it. Fake names won’t really matter.

  • sirsimon

    thanks for that lol, I think the vault of souls is located in the undercroft of Morzan’s castle, a chamber filled with hundreds of eldunari, not only that, it could be where the green dragon’s egg is stored.

  • ShurtugalLiam

    Fair enough point nlilli, i wasnt thinking of the Banishing of the Names at the time XD … makes sense actually lol else how would Eragon remember it?? lol … ah well …

    and thank you sirsimon lol ^.^ it was a “moment thing” when i thought of it though, and the end of school bell went off …. lol 🙂

    good luck to all who enter the competition

  • Bob

    You guys rock 😛

  • Evarinya

    Woot Woot! Great job you guys are doing. We all really appreciate it!

  • feanarang

    Thanks for fixing the link, Bob. We appreciate it. 😉

  • Mike

    We need your email addresses so we can contact you if you win. After we pick winners, our entire database of email addresses is deleted. We do not use them for anything else.

    As for your real name – yes, we do need this. In the event you do win, fake names won’t get you very far when it comes to shipping. 😛 Again, these are deleted right after a winner is chosen and only I have access to them.

  • Jade&Ophelia

    If you win Shur’tugal staff will e-mail you, this is the only purpose of it.

    Yes, but they won’t tell anyone 😉

    ~ Jade & Ophelia

  • LumenNitidum

    Will our e-mail addresses be used for any other purposes?

    Also, do we have to provide our real name?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lumen Nitidum

  • Jade&Ophelia

    I agree, very creative thought.

    I have this idea, what if the Vault of Souls is on Vroenguard? And if so what’s in it?

    if it is there then it, most likely, has somthing to do with the souls of Dragons/Riders.

    @Rob: Would you like us to thank you instead? ;D

    ~ Jade & Ophelia

  • sirsimon

    Precisly nlilli, but its a very good idea, but I doubt that any of the forsworn dragons names will appear, we will expect the names of more forsworn, but not their dragons, a shame because it would be fascinating.

  • nlilli

    dear ShurtugalLiam…

    In brisingr arya tells eragon that the names of the forsworns dragons where taken away by the dragons (The banishing of the Names)

    To be called the rock of kuthian would be to name themselfs

  • ShurtugalLiam

    alright … sorry 🙂 was just wondering….


    i havent recieved an email when i tried to make an account so i cant make a user … help?

  • Mike

    We’ve explained MANY times now why the contests are limited to the USA and Canada only.

  • ShurtugalLiam

    OMG!! ive just thought of something … and mike please dont delete this or something cause i cant get onto the forums to discuss it XD

    im in school reading Eldest and im up to the point where Arya takes eragon and saphira to the menoa tree and ive just thought …

    could Kuthian be a dragon of the forsworn and when solumbum said “look under the rock of kuthian” because eragons power is insignificant (he could mean that if galby gives murtagh more eldunari) and that under the rock, as in grave, of the dragon kuthian there is his eldurnari!!!! ………………… sorry if that confuses anyone XD but i just suddenly thought of it lol 🙂

  • ShurtugalLiam

    question …… why is this competition only for Americans and Canadians? 🙁

    could the range not be extended for Britain?? lol

    good luck to all though 🙂

  • PadfootUnewraithSlayer

    Wow, I’ve missed alot! ;D Hahaha.

  • Bob

    Thanks Mike?!?! Pfff!

  • rino62

  • Jade&Ophelia

  • Jade&Ophelia

    So, has Round 3 been like this since its opening? I wonder why?!?!?!?!

    Must be some minor glitch, hang in there till someone on the Shur’tugal Staff fixes it XD jk
