From the Desk of Christopher Paolini

It has been a long time since Christopher has sent his fans a newsletter, but we can all agree that it was worth the wait. Are you wondering about his progress on Book IV? Anxious to know what the series’ artist, John Jude Palencar, is working on? Or you just want to know a tiny bit of what Christopher is writing now? Then check out the newest newsletter after the jump!Kvetha Fricäya! Greetings Friends, and a very belated Happy New Year!

I know that it’s been months since my last newsletter, but I wanted to tell you that I’ve been hard at work and think about you, my readers, daily.

The holidays were unusually busy. Most years, my family and I spend the time quietly at home, but this year several friends came to visit. We shared long conversations, great food, and a special outing to the Museum of the Rockies—better known as dinosaur central.

Since the New Year, I’ve been working with renewed determination to finish the manuscript of Book Four. The story is unfolding much as I’ve always imagined, but, as usual, I find myself adding scenes I hadn’t anticipated when I plotted out the book. Although it’s taking me longer than I’d hoped to get my vision on the page, I think it’s worth it. This is going to be the most exciting and action-packed book of the entire series.

Last month I watched the Doctor Who specials from last year. Wow! For those of you who follow the travels of the Doctor, you may have caught a reference to him in Brisingr. This year brings a new actor to the role of Doctor, and I look forward to seeing how he portrays him. He has a big scarf to fill.

I recently spoke with John Jude Palencar, the cover artist for the Inheritance series. He told me that he’s been painting the green dragon for the cover of the fourth book. I can’t wait to see it! John is immensely talented, and I always enjoy seeing how he interprets the creatures from my world.

This is going to be a newsworthy year for the Inheritance cycle, with lots of big announcements coming up. And I’m excited to tell you that the Brisingr paperback is now in stores. As always, Alagaesia.com and Shurtugal.com will post the latest developments.

Now, back to the book for me. At the moment, I’m in the middle of a really interesting section. It contains a one-sided game of knucklebones, an evil assassin, bags of flour, a water-born battering ram, streets lined with lead, a knife in the back, and the death of a character.

Yes, I’m killing someone off. Horrible, isn’t it?

May your swords stay sharp!

    could the reason that they only found the one egg be because ther was no 3rd there??? maybe his mom already stole it and faked her own death.

    then eragon who started his training with brom(his father) could finsh up with his mother.

    @xhuggybearx (Guest):
    That is a stretch for me. I’m not convinced a “game” of one sided knuckle bones has anything to do with fortune telling. Knuckle bones has been used as a game of chance and the word “game” itself signifies something different from what Angela did for Eragon with the Dragon knuckle bones. Besides this notwithstanding the rest of the evidence still debunks Angela and Selena being the same person.

    @XEldest (Guest):
    I think we need to accept things from canon that CP told us. Selena is dead. Brom got detailed accounts of her condition and arrived only hours after she died. I always got the impression he would have seen her body, that’s not directly stated but he went through great lengths to figure out she died post child birth. This is how he found out about Eragon’s existence. Plus Selena stayed with Morzan to protect Murtagh. If she was alive she wouldn’t have abandoned her sons, especially Murtagh as he was not happy or safe.
    On top of this Garrow is a normal human of a normal age and Selena was born to the same parents. She was not the same as Brom who had lived for a century. We know Angela was around before the fall of the Riders and long before Selena was born.

    I do think there will be something special about Angela which we will discover and there may be something about Selena that Angela will tell Eragon but canon so far supports that they are two completely different people who met once in Terim. Sorry to be so negative but there are too many factors against this one for it to be plausible.

  • murtaghmorzanson

    i think it will be orik or roran cuz orik would be the first ever dwarf rider and roran is eragons cosin so it would kinda fit rite…..

    Someone hacked into the site almost a week ago. I surprised that the sign is still up. I thought it would have been taken down real quick.

    On the side note I have an idea bout Shurikan, after or during the battle Eragon finds out he is good and Shurikan ask Eragon to kill him bc of all the evil things Galby made him do. I just don’t see him surviving the battle. It will be cool if he did, but I just don’t see it. Who knows what may happen until the book comes out.

    I think the new rider will be Arya, Angela or might be Trianna. CP does never describe Trianna in details (as long as I can remember), so she might have green eyes and green magic… It’s just a though. What do you guys think? and maybe CP is looking at our comments, and everyone guesses that Arya is the next rider so maybe he will surprise us with a rider that none of us has thought of? Remember CP knows more than us in this awesoooooooooooome cycle

    Were176crider-I wasn’t teasing, I merely inserted myself into a conversation where I did not belong. I do that a lot. And I enjoyed your posts.

    What I really liked about the one that got disabled is that it allowed us to speak of matters that we would have been reprimanded here on the upper comments for, without disturbing the general flow of information here. But I don’t really mind… I suppose that you guys check the other comments more often after the religious debate. Anyway, this comment has been mostly off topic, so I have a question for some people: For the rider to be in all three books, would he/she simply have to be present at the time of the events, or would he/she have to be mentioned, or would he/she have to say something? For instance, Elva said nothing in Eragon, so, as people are considering her as the next dragon rider, we must assume that to be “in” the person only has to be mentioned. But, for example, if one of the Council of Elders, who were not mentioned in Eragon but were present at the time of the arrival of Eragon to Tronjheim, was to become a rider (I doubt that this would happen) would that hold true to CP’s words? And I think that Jarsha, the messenger boy, should get the dragon but Arya will. And this was offtopic too… well, delete this if you must.

    I personally believe that the reason that the Book 4 Analysis, Theories, and More page had its comments disabled was because of my going off topic with my posts.

    I know that that was a favorite page to post on for many people, and if indeed it was my own fault, I am very sorry.

    That same problem of off topic talk happened here, and was pointed out by Robert Cox, who appeared quite angry that I was off-topic.

    So, to those who enjoyed my posts (if any) I am sorry, and will return later in the summer, when I feel that the time is right.

  • ElvenLord

    I personally think that the true name the Ra’zac was referring to was the true name of the ancient language, giving him power over everyone who uses it, at least according to Oromis. Eragon i feel would have to defeat Galby by not using any words of the ancient language, not saying he couldn’t use magic, just not use the language. He did this when attacked in Brisingr by the Dwarf assains. Oromis i believe hinted that Galby may not know that magic can be used without the ancient language in eldest. Just a thought.

    As Arya pointed out, Galbatorix doesn\’t know either Eragon or Saphira well enough to guess their true names. The true name the Razac talks about is probably the true name of the entire language.

    @DuSundavarFreohr: along the line of Galby discovering Saphira’s true name, do you all remember in Brisingr when Eragon is about to kill the last Ra’zac and it tells Eragon, “He has almost found ‘the name’!” That has GOT to play a part in book 4 – that leads me to believe Galby will discover Eragon’s or Saphira’s true name! Scary!

    @MaggiMcL (Guest): I agree with you about the rider/dragon having to fall in love with rider/dragon. Selena was not a rider, yet she was with both Morzan and Brom. Kudoz for that thought.

    Quick note for everyone:

    Just completed a database purge that cleared out any users registered before 1/1/10 that had NOT activated their account (and therefore not used it).

    This means that some great usernames are now available…like “Galbatorix” and “Bromiscool333333333333333333334”. Such wonderful names!

    i was just looking back at news releases. brisnger came out in september 08, and the release date was announced in january 08. so unless CP is planning on being really nice and only make us wait a few months after the release date is announced, which i doubt. then we have alot of time left. i’d say well over a year.

    and i don’t think murtagh knows eragon is only a half brother. i don’t remember him finding out.

    @oromismaster (Guest): Yes, but Solembum said that it would shock him again. If your theory is correct, then would all of the energy simply flowed through Eragon?
    DuSundavarFrehor- And I shall say, as I did the last time, that Saphira would either be destroyed by this or kill herself rather than harm Eragon. And Elva is not a witch. Witches use magic.
    maybemaybenot- Surda is in Alagaesia.
    XEldset- Murtagh still thinks that Eragon is his brother.
    Eldest13- Ah, yes, I remember you saying that you are dyslexic. Or, at least, someone with the name of Eldest… it seems to be quite common.

    Here is the rest

    “It hatched just after the ground closed up,” she said “I named him Selther.” “The ground closed up!? Then were is the light coming from.” Eragon looked around only to see thousands of moving lanterns miles above them. The he realized they were spirits! The whole place looked like some sort of giant cave. Solebum was right Eragon we’re in the Vault of Souls, Saphira pointed out. “Anyone have an idea how to get out of here?” asked Murtagh. Well I don’t know about you but in case you haven’t noticed Galbatorix and his slave of a dragon remain above ground, said Thorn. “Well in the mean time we should start on Arya’s and Selther’s training right away.”
    (Months pass and Selther becomes full grown as Arya and him complete there training.)
    “I’ gonna go look for a way out of here” said Eragon before bed one night. They had no need to eat nor drink sense the spirits presence seemed to make them have qualities of the living dead. As Eragon stumbled along a trail he had found he discovered a disturbing site. Slumped against a wall was a skeleton garbed in a gray tunic his hands dangling to his side and an old dagger lying at his feat. Looks like some kinda suicide, thought Eragon as he approach the lifeless body. Only then did he see that the point of the dagger was dull and not blood stained, and by his head was an inscription. Let’s see what you wrote.
    “I am the last of my kind, the last of the oldest race. I am a grey folk and here are my last words. I came here to seek wisdom and knowledge and I found it. The spirits told me that you would one day read this Eragon. Yes! Be shocked if you must but I know who you are Du Sundavar Freohr, and Death of the Shadows you are. I made that language and I alone know it’s name. I give it to you now though and use it only once for once uttered the name will change. It can over come any spell. Destroy that blasted king with this, and good luck.
    (Name of Ancient Language)”
    Eragon was so shocked he stared at the message for what seemed like ages until he heard Arya calling him. “I’m coming,” he yelled. Arya embraced him when they meet. “Don’t do that again you’ve been missing for seven hours. Never mind that though the ceiling just opened up!”
    Flaming Illriel
    The three riders burst out of the vault as fast as they could and were all expecting an ambush. All that meet them was a Varden scout. “Riders Nasuda request you to return for the siege,” he said with shocking look at Selther. “We’ve been gone for months!” said Murtagh even more shocked. “Rider you’ve only been gone a morning! The elves just informed us of your change of sides. Speaking of were are they Shadeslayer?” “There dead Galbatorix killed them.” “Well you must explain this to lady Nasuda right away!” said the horrified scout. The group then headed for camp.
    (The siege begins)
    The Varden were pounding the walls they would soon be through. As the three dragons soared with their riders Galbatorix meet them. Fire engulfed the sky with rain like blood. Eragon slashed and stabbed at Galbatorix but to no avail. He’s toying with us! The king held all three back with ancient skill. As Saphira twisted to avoid crashing on the ground Galbatorix slashed Eragons saddle buckles in half. Murtagh and Arya were to late to shout a warning Eragon fell and dropped Brisinger. He landed on his back and rolled almost100 yards protcted by his wards, then his visions went black. “Get up you pathetic excuse for a rider.” As he became conscience. The king kicked and spat at him as the three dragons and two riders attempted to subdue Shruikan. “You thought you could charge head on and kill me in my own city. This lands mine. I don’t need you only your dragon. You see with almost all the Eldunari I could kill everyone alive if I wanted. Your the same as the rest foolish and weak. I’ll enjoy killing your friends,” Galbatorix laughed as he raised his sword. Then a Brisinger came strait through his gut. Stunned Galbatorix turned around and slashed. A spray of blood rose into the air and Nasuda fell down dead holding Brisinger. Murtagh screamed as he jumped off Thorn and attacked the king. Galbatorix quickly healed himself and engaged Murtagh. Eragon enraged at Nasuda’s death grabbed Brisinger and joined Murtagh. Arya shortly joined them. They fought for what seemed like days until Galbatorix bashed Arya with his sword hilt her vision went blank. Eragon turned to help her when he felt the kings sword slash against his back and the king paralyze his mind. “No!” Murtagh yelled and slashed at the grinning king so fast that he couldn’t react. Galbatorix screamed in pain as his sword hand dropped to the ground and his hold on Eragon broke. The king then raised his remaining hand and words formed on his lips as Arya woke. “(Name of Ancient Language),” Eragon muttered and in an instant the king lost all magical ability and all his spells were broken. ” Dejya,” yelled the king and was shocked when nothing happened before The riders could react. He was swallowed up by Shruikan.
    The End

  • XEldset

    I’m sorry if I’m not supposed to do this but I do not see it as Plagiarism because it is my own version.
    Here it is

    The Egg Thief
    The monster was coming and he could not escape. Thud, he leaned over on Thorn’s back, thud, they needed to escape, thud, Murtagh turned around “wake up he begged, wake up please,” thud, to late. Murtagh bolted up right in his bed breathing heavily. The night air was heavy, damp, and smelled of smoke like always in the capital. Thorn woke up sensing Murtagh’s uneasiness. What’s wrong? he asked in a voice younger than anyone can expect from a creature as colossus as a the dragon he was. Murtagh shivered at the unnatural voice, Nothing, go back to bed it was just nightmare, he responded. Thorn slowly lowered his head thinking, I wonder what he’s dreaming of that’s his sixth night in a row waking up in his sleep. Murtagh stayed awake and sat on the edge of his bed, the same dream had woken him for nearly a week now. I need to get out of here, he thought. I need Eragon’s help. I need to help the Varden somehow, Galbatorix can’t hold me forever. Eragon and Nasuda are the only to people that have ever showed me kindness, not counting Thorn. And I’m working against them! Poor thanks that is! Despite the spell Murtagh could not help but feel guilty for his actions and despised the tyrant king even more. These are his actions not mine! How can I let him do this to me without fighting back! I’m so weak! He grabbed Zaroc and threw it a the wall were it landed humming sound. Eragon needs help from another rider and I can help him. He may not be my brother but he’s the second closest family I have. Nasuda…. well she’s the only member of the Varden that ever believed in me!
    Murtagh wrestled with his emotions and the spell into the night always thinking about Nasuda and Eragon, mostly Nasuda. He was about to go mentally insane when his mind freed and his stomach lurched Thorn shot up and they stared into each others eyes grinning till it hurt. They were free! Free from Galbatorix! Free from his oppression! Free! Free! Free! Murtagh spun in a circle laughing while Thorn chuckled with delight. Murtagh grabbed Zaroc out of the wall and turned to his dragon Grab the Eldunari were leaving but I have one errand to run first. Murtagh softly opened the door and stepped out into the hall. The floor was wood and the stone walls were lined with banners bearing Galbatorix’s flame symbol. Murtagh stealthily made his way to the egg room. Once he arrived the guards at the door commanded “Halt! Who goes there.” “It is I, Murtagh, the king’s most loyal servant,” he responded, doing his best to keep a strait face. “Well I don’t know about loyal, but none the less a servant yes,” remarked the captain through a thick mustache. “Silence Captain Eager I come with orders to bring the egg to the king himself or do you wish to defy his orders,” threatened Murtagh with a scowl. “Very well you may pass,” grumbled Eager.
    Murtagh smiled and entered the dimly lit room. He had only been in here only once, when Thorn hatched. It was a small circular room with a gold stand in the middle which on top rested a red velvet pillow with the green egg on top. The walls were covered with paintings of dragons and riders that seamed so real they sent a chill down Murtagh’s spine. As he approached the egg he was thankful that Galbatorix had allowed only him and Murtagh to handle the egg. Murtagh slipped the egg into a leather pouch and remaining as calm as possible turned around. Just short of the exit Murtagh drew Zaroc silently. Poor Captain Eager and his fellow guard never knew what lopped their heads off.
    Murtagh’s heart raced as he ran down the hall back to his room. It won’t be long till they find the bodies, he thought with a sense of urgency. Thorn get ready we need to leave right away. I’m ready when you are, came the response. Murtagh burst into his room jumped on Thorn and they soared out the hole in the roof. Well my friend that went much better than I hopped, said Murtagh. We still have to get to the Varden though, Thorn warned. Ya, I guess you’re right but still that…, he stopped dead in his words as he looked back and cold fear gripped Murtagh. Shruikan was on the horizon.
    Rider 3
    Thorn fly faster, Galbatorix is right on our heals! Fear flooded Thorn as he redoubled his efforts and shot off faster than any dragon has ever flown. Shruikan remained in sight for 3 days and for 3 days Murtagh and Thorn fled then Murtagh saw a Varden camp.

    Eragon was woken from his sleep by the alarm. “Thorn is on the horizon,” a voice yelled. No not now! Saphira wake up! Thorn’s here! Saphira rose swiftly and roared letting lose a tongue of flame. He will not escape this time, she said with unfaltering determination. Eragon sensed she longed to tear his heat out and rip it to shreds. As Eragon was belting Brisinger Arya gracefully ran up to him. “We’re coming with,” she said. Only then did Eragon realize the 13 other elves were behind her. “Very well, Arya ride with me seeing you are the only other one who has fought on Saphira before.” Arya wordlessly fallowed Eragon on to Saphira placing her arms around his waist. “The rest of you will have to run on the ground below, now let’s go!” Sapira soared up into the air stair towards Thorn.

    Relief washed over Murtagh as he saw Saphira come into view in front of him. After a minute he felt Eragon’s mind brush against his and he let him in. Why let me in? Came Eragon’s voice extremely surprised. Because we need to talk. I am free! My name changed! He forced Eragon to view the recent vents through his mind. And I come bearing the last egg however Shruikan is on my heals and I need your help! Panic seized Eragon. He’s coming! No, no, no! Eragon looked down and saw an odd rock formation. Sending an image of it to Murtagh he said, land here will have to fight him. Galbatorix will probably kill us but it’s all we can do. Eragon relayed the message to Arya and the elves who began to panic.
    Once landed Eragon, Murtagh, Arya, and the elves drew swords and awaited their doom. Nobody talked just ready and waiting. Arya suddenly ran up to Eragon and kissed him then hell broke lose. Shruikan smashed down on two elves instantly killing them for he was the size of a small hill. Eragon, Arya, and Murtagh took to the sky on the dragons in a blur of blue and red. Eragon froze and his heat dropped. Galbatorix was riding the black dragon. “You fool.” he said in a snaked voice pointing to Murtagh and then Shruikan pinned Saphira and Thorn along with Arya, Eragon, and Murtagh.
    Galbatorix jumped off the dragon and with incredible speed lopped off an elf’s head he then only with a sword finished off the remaining nine. Eragon saw his life flash before his eyes and suddenly realized his true name. Without thinking he uttered it and the earth swallowed him up. Eragon was shaken awake by Murtagh. “Were are we?” ” I don’t know but that doesn’t matter the eggs just hatched!” Eragon bolted up to see Arya holding a small green dragon.

    I’m not done yet.

What’s wrong? he asked in a voice younger than anyone can expect from a creature as colossus as a the dragon he was. Murtagh shivered at the unnatural voice, Nothing, go back to bed it was just nightmare, he responded. Thorn slowly lowered his head thinking, I wonder what he’s dreaming of that’s his sixth night in a row waking up in his sleep. Murtagh stayed awake and sat on the edge of his bed, the same dream had woken him for nearly a week now. I need to get out of here, he thought. I need Eragon’s help. I need to help the Varden somehow, Galbatorix can’t hold me forever. Eragon and Nasuda are the only to people that have ever showed me kindness, not counting Thorn. And I’m working against them! Poor thanks that is! Despite the spell Murtagh could not help but feel guilty for his actions and despised the tyrant king even more. These are his actions not mine! How can I let him do this to me without fighting back! I’m so weak! He grabbed Zaroc and threw it a the wall were it landed humming sound. Eragon needs help from another rider and I can help him. He may not be my brother but he’s the second closest family I have. Nasuda…. well she’s the only member of the Varden that ever believed in me! Murtagh wrestled with his emotions and the spell into the night always thinking about Nasuda and Eragon, mostly Nasuda. He was about to go mentally insane when his mind freed and his stomach lurched Thorn shot up and they stared into each others eyes grinning till it hurt. They were free! Free from Galbatorix! Free from his oppression! Free! Free! Free! Murtagh spun in a circle laughing while Thorn chuckled with delight. Murtagh grabbed Zaroc out of the wall and turned to his dragon Grab the Eldunari were leaving but I have one errand to run first. Murtagh softly opened the door and stepped out into the hall. The floor was wood and the stone walls were lined with banners bearing Galbatorix’s flame symbol. Murtagh stealthily made his way to the egg room. Once he arrived the guards at the door commanded “Halt! Who goes there.” “It is I, Murtagh, the king’s most loyal servant,” he responded, doing his best to keep a strait face. “Well I don’t know about loyal, but none the less a servant yes,” remarked the captain through a thick mustache. “Silence Captain Eager I come with orders to bring the egg to the king himself or do you wish to defy his orders,” threatened Murtagh with a scowl. “Very well you may pass,” grumbled Eager. Murtagh smiled and entered the dimly lit room. He had only been in here only once, when Thorn hatched. It was a small circular room with a gold stand in the middle which on top rested a red velvet pillow with the green egg on top. The walls were covered with paintings of dragons and riders that seamed so real they sent a chill down Murtagh’s spine. As he approached the egg he was thankful that Galbatorix had allowed only him and Murtagh to handle the egg. Murtagh slipped the egg into a leather pouch and remaining as calm as possible turned around. Just short of the exit Murtagh drew Zaroc silently. Poor Captain Eager and his fellow guard never knew what lopped their heads off. Murtagh’s heart raced as he ran down the hall back to his room. It won’t be long till they find the bodies, he thought with a sense of urgency. Thorn get ready we need to leave right away. I’m ready when you are, came the response. Murtagh burst into his room jumped on Thorn and they soared out the hole in the roof. Well my friend that went much better than I hopped, said Murtagh. We still have to get to the Varden though, Thorn warned. Ya, I guess you’re right but still that…, he stopped dead in his words as he looked back and cold fear gripped Murtagh. Shruikan was on the horizon.Rider 3Thorn fly faster, Galbatorix is right on our heals! Fear flooded Thorn as he redoubled his efforts and shot off faster than any dragon has ever flown. Shruikan remained in sight for 3 days and for 3 days Murtagh and Thorn fled then Murtagh saw a Varden camp.-Eragon was woken from his sleep by the alarm. “Thorn is on the horizon,” a voice yelled. No not now! Saphira wake up! Thorn’s here! Saphira rose swiftly and roared letting lose a tongue of flame. He will not escape this time, she said with unfaltering determination. Eragon sensed she longed to tear his heat out and rip it to shreds. As Eragon was belting Brisinger Arya gracefully ran up to him. “We’re coming with,” she said. Only then did Eragon realize the 13 other elves were behind her. “Very well, Arya ride with me seeing you are the only other one who has fought on Saphira before.” Arya wordlessly fallowed Eragon on to Saphira placing her arms around his waist. “The rest of you will have to run on the ground below, now let’s go!” Sapira soared up into the air stair towards Thorn.- Relief washed over Murtagh as he saw Saphira come into view in front of him. After a minute he felt Eragon’s mind brush against his and he let him in. Why let me in? Came Eragon’s voice extremely surprised. Because we need to talk. I am free! My name changed! He forced Eragon to view the recent vents through his mind. And I come bearing the last egg however Shruikan is on my heals and I need your help! Panic seized Eragon. He’s coming! No, no, no! Eragon looked down and saw an odd rock formation. Sending an image of it to Murtagh he said, land here will have to fight him. Galbatorix will probably kill us but it’s all we can do. Eragon relayed the message to Arya and the elves who began to panic. Once landed Eragon, Murtagh, Arya, and the elves drew swords and awaited their doom. Nobody talked just ready and waiting. Arya suddenly ran up to Eragon and kissed him then hell broke lose. Shruikan smashed down on two elves instantly killing them for he was the size of a small hill. Eragon, Arya, and Murtagh took to the sky on the dragons in a blur of blue and red. Eragon froze and his heat dropped. Galbatorix was riding the black dragon. “You fool.” he said in a snaked voice pointing to Murtagh and then Shruikan pinned Saphira and Thorn along with Arya, Eragon, and Murtagh. Galbatorix jumped off the dragon and with incredible speed lopped off an elf’s head he then only with a sword finished off the remaining nine. Eragon saw his life flash before his eyes and suddenly realized his true name. Without thinking he uttered it and the earth swallowed him up. Eragon was shaken awake by Murtagh. “Were are we?” ” I don’t know but that doesn’t matter the eggs just hatched!” Eragon bolted up to see Arya holding a small green dragon.I’m not done yet.

But i think CP has spent to much time on developing Eragon’s morals that in the end, he will have Galby on his knee’s and will wanting to show mercy and give him to the people, but then Shruikan and Saphira, being the only two remaining dragons because greeny hasn’t hatched yet, will feast on Galby’s bones. she did say humans taste just as good as other animals.

    All right here it is.

    So what first happens is as the varden are approaching Illreal Murtaghs true name changes and he steals the egg and makes a made dash for the varden with Galby on his heels. Once Eragon realizes what’s happening he goes to help Murtagh along with Arya and the Elves. They meet at the VOS unknowingly and the elves bravely try to fight off Galby, who kills them all. In panic Eragon discovers his true name and the VOS opens. Eragon, Murtagh, Arya, Saphira, Thorn, and the egg get sealed inside. Time is faster inside than out kind of like Narnia but not that fast. Galby gives up and heads home. The egg hatches for Arya and becomes fully grown with the two dragons and riders training them. While in there Eragon stumbles upon an inscription which is the name of the ancient language. The 3 riders head out to join the battle once the training is complete. The four riders clash above the battle. During the fight Galby knocks Eragon off Saphira and pins him the dragons then take on Shruikan. Murtagh and Arya rush to Eragon’s aid. Galby starts gloating to Eragon and is about to end it when Nasuda catches him by surprise using Brisinger. Galby turns around and kills her. Galby then fights the 3 riders and knocks Arya by hitting her with the sword handle. Eragon turns around to help her and gets slahed in the back Murtagh unwilling to take defeat cuts off Galby’s hand. Eragon then uses the name of the ancient language to realease Shruikan. Galby is about to kill Murtagh and Eragon with magic when Shruikan swallows him up.

    I know it’s wild but that’s my guess.

    @XEldest (Guest):

    The last battle will involve Galby letting Murtagh and Thorn take their chances against Eragon and Saphira before he intervenes. It will come down to Saphira taking down Thorn. She will not make the mistake of letting him go again when she gets him in her clutches. Once Thron is dead, Murtagh will attempt to kill Eragon and Saphira, but combined with Glaedr’s strength that resides in his Eldunari, and the new Rider and greenie, they will take over Murtagh’s mind. Now that Thorn is dead, Murtagh’s name will have changed so significantly that his oath’s to Galby to be broken. Once they are broken, Eragon will subdue him until after the battle. Then Eragon will fight Galby, but I think it will be a sword duel, no magic at first, but Galby will try an underhanded trick that will backfire. Eragon will sense that Galby is going to use magic, and he will cry out the first word that comes to his mind (which will more than likely be Brisingr) and he will (along with Lighting his sword on fire) engulf Galby with such a powerful blaze that his wards will all deplete, leaving him open. Then Saphira will free the Eldunari from Galby’s possession by convincing Shruikan to help them. After this, Galby will be a normal magician, and thus Eragon will be able to defeat him. Afterwards, Shruikan will pair up with Murtagh since they were both Galby’s slaves and have so much in common.

    I know it is a wild and crazy theory, but That’s what I’m hopin for.

Then Saphira will free the Eldunari from Galby’s possession by convincing Shruikan to help them. After this, Galby will be a normal magician, and thus Eragon will be able to defeat him. Afterwards, Shruikan will pair up with Murtagh since they were both Galby’s slaves and have so much in common.I know it is a wild and crazy theory, but That’s what I’m hopin for.

    Seeing as how I posted this question to yoiu guys several weeks ago, and din’t get much of a response, I want to ask it again.

    What would happen if someone figured out Saphira’s true name and ordered her to kill Eragon? Would their bond take precedence over her true name? Would she kill him? or would she be able to resist it?

    @Arya20 (Guest):

    Regardless of who made her like that, or how important she may be, she is still a freak. Even if she becomes a Rider, she is still a freak. If she kills Galby, then it will be known that a Galby was killed by a freak.

    i have brought this up many times and i dont think it means anything,but i just figured out my anwser. in the first book when eragon was in angelas shop eragon touched something that shocked him. i think it was oromis that said something like,some items cant hold energy,but if you put too much energy in something and u touch it you will get shocked. just something ive been thinking about, im sure it dosent mean anything.

    I can feel tension building so everybody calm down…@MaggiMcl:I the first book Eragon has a premonition of 2 dragons flying over a boat with two Elves or Elf-Like people boarding it on is a woman one is a man. Elva cannot be ful grown by the time the book is done. The spell no longer holds her! Angel said Eragon is domed to leave Alegasia forever. Unless Murtagh and the next rider(Arya). Dump Eragon of on an island and kill Saphira I dubt that will happen(Poor thanks that would be).I am sorry if I sound harsh, I don’t mean to, just trying to help avoid a stupid and pointless argument.

    @MaggiMcL (Guest): i wasn’t aware of people thinking Riders and their dragons had to pair with other Rider/dragon pairs. Saphira’s existence pretty well negates that theory, as her father was bonded to a Rider, and her mother was wild. I think either Brom or Oromis (i’m a few hundred miles away from my books to check) said that it was considered a great feat among bonded dragons for one of their kind to mate with a wild dragon, particularly females.

    I don’t know why i dislike Elva, in all books there are just some characters, good and bad, who you just don’t warm to. I’m not too keen on Saphira either. *GASP!!!* 😉

    On another note, i’m amazed at how quickly the comments are rolling under this posting! It’s great to hear (well, read) so many theories.

  • MaggiMcL

    Two things:
    I don’t get everyone’s revulsion and hatred of Elva. I personally think she is fascinating. She has never done anything “evil” and simply told Eragon he would have to earn her respect because all he did was fix his own mistake. I think Elva will be an integral part of the Varden VICTORY. She is clever and confident and has unique and amazing abilities. I have always been quite taken with the creativity behind her character and was actually kind of shocked to discover most of the community dislikes and distrusts her. I do like her as a rider candidate because historically it has been young children who become riders. Arya and Bridget don’t fit this bill.

    Secondly, where is everyone getting this idea that riders and dragons need to be in love with another paired rider and dragon?! It is a far jump from -being careful who you love because your feelings affect your dragon- to – your dragon must fall in love with the dragon of the rider you fall in love with- (that’s not even a sentence sorry).
    We have “0” evidence dragons mate monogamously for starters. It’s very possible Saphira will never “fall in love” she’s not human. Even if she will mate for life or long term the necessity for Rider/Dragon match ups would make finding a mate very close to impossible. Saphira’s point in Tronjeim is that she experiences his feelings and therefore must be considered as part of the equation. It did not mean she would need to fall in love with Trianna or that riders can only mate with (love… sorry too many bio classes) other riders. This is a silly assumption that seems to have become fact. It is NOT evidence that Arya will be the next rider. It would be serendipitous if this were to occur (it’s iikely it might…) but we should not be theorizing using it as a basis of fact.

    Apologies but this has been driving me insane for the last few pages…

    @aryareadyfor4: i don’t think CP has enough time to completely rework that spell along with everything else he has to tie up in this book. As for Roran, I highly doubt it. Roran is all about being strong w/out aid from magic or a dragon. Katrina told him that she thought he was most powerful because he didn’t have magic or a dragon, but he came to rescue her and killed almost 200 soldiers on his own. CP has built his entire character on this and I don’t think he would throw it away and just give him a dragon. A lot of people are making the “but almost everyone in their family has been a rider!” argument. CP said that that was because the dragons wanted to balance it out and/or they thought it would be funny/interesting. I forget exactly what he said, but there’s no one on the “other side” of the family to balance him out. Hmm.. does that make sense? But htat still leaves the rest of the evidence.

    I agree with your first point. If it was just a battle to see who had the most eldunarya it would be an unsatisfactory ending. But I think the new rider will be Arya. I know it’s the obvious choice but they need somebody who is already somewhat trained in magic and such because they don’t have much time to train the new rider. Also her Magic and eyes are green and I agree that the new rider will be female because all the riders in the book have been males.

    Or, would Roran be too far-fetched? Eragon’s family seem to have the gene anyway. He’s definitely got the stamina. Just some thoughts not mentioned yet.

    Okay…
    1) I don’t think there will be eldunarya in the VoS. I don’t know what’s in there or where it is, but its not eldunarya. The entire series is about Eragon using his head to outsmart and outthink his enemies. Brom said (I don’t have the exact quote, sorry) something like “The trick isn’t to smash through your opponent’s defenses, but to slip under and around them.” Something like that, anyway. And I’m assuming that applies to life in general, not just when he tries to break into someone’s mind. If there were eldunarya in the VoS, Eragon would just use the insane amount of energy and just have an epic power-battle with Galby. That sort of ending is crude and against what we’ve learned about Eragon so far and I personally would be really disappointed in CP if he wrote such an unsatisfying ending.
    2) I think the next rider will be Birgit. In an interview, CP said that the person had been in all 3 books, but we didn’t know them very well. I think this fits. She is strong, she’s been in all three books, but we don’t know her all that well. It would also put her on more even footing with Roran to get back at him. And she also already knows how to fight to some extent. Besides, there are way too many male riders at the moment.

    I think the theory about Murtagh stabbing Galby in the back is definetly a possibility, even if “stabbing in the back” is just a metaphor. In all the interviews and newsletters and books there might be a lot of metaphors, and we shouldn’t take anything literally. For example, Eragon leaving Algaesia might just mean that algaesia will change and never be the same, so it’s like a new place. Also, it is very possible that Nasuada will be the next Rider. We all know (or at least think we know) that the next dragon is green, right? And if you look in book 3, it seems that Nasuada is almost always wearing green. CP probably wouldn’t mention that unless it meant something.

    @aryareadyfor4: If the ring was an eldunari Eragon would have felt it when he reached out his mind to see how much energy was in the ring. And I don’t remember hearing that the ring had limitless energy, and even if it did Eldunaris do not have unlimited energy.

    Here’s a thought I had about Aren – Brom’s ring. Would it be possible for the gem to actually be an Eldunari? The books have said the energy was limitless! But then I guess the dragon conscience would have already tried to touch Eragon…scratch that!

    I seem to remember reading that Galby killed Shruikan’s first rider too in Eldest – but I could be wrong. But even if Galby did take another rider’s dragon, it was by force – and I can’t see Arya using such tactics if the green dragon HAS already hatched.

But has anyone considered Nasuada and ERAGON? Angela said a woman of royal descent – well, Nasuada fits that bill as well as Arya, and in Eldest and Brisingr, there are some statements that lead you to believe Nasuada may have feelings for Eragon, who has feelings for Arya, who has feelings for no one – a perfect love triangle!

    As for Islanzadi getting the “knife,” has she really been that vital a character? Just askin’.

    I think that in the last book Eragon will go to the VOS and it will have something to do with the people who created the ancient language. Eragon will get enough power fight Galbatorix and he will use the seven words Brom told him before he died. When it is all done the Menoa tree will force Eragon to leave and Arya who is the new rider will leave with Eragon. Murtaugh will change his true name and become the last rider in Alagaisa.

    I think I know if Murtagh will be free the knife in the back theory. The Varden will lay seige to Urubaen. Then Galby comes out and kills Nasuada (stabs her in the back)which enrages Murtagh and changing his true name (since he oviously likes her) or murtagh stabs galby in the back.

    I know that this is very random and not exactly the most exciting. Also, I am sorry if someone else already mentioned this, I didn’t feel like reading ALL the posts.

    I want to point another very small (but IMPORTANT detail IMO). I forget exactly what chapter it was in Brisingr, but during the one battle Roran was involved in, his leg was cut badlyl by an ox that ran from fear of the chaos. It even mentioned how the wards seemed to not do anything to prevent this injury.

    So I wonder if Eragon will use his head in the “Brains” chapter and somehow control a random animal and use it to inflict damage?

    I honestly think the little detail in Brisingr is very overlooked. Thoughts??

    This has been an interesting post and a lot of theories. I want to point out only one thing that might be part of the vault of souls. In book 2, Eragon asked Oromis about words of power. That there was one word that would control everything, but it was lost. Could this not be the place where it is written or kept. Maybe guarded by those spirit things that Arya told him about in book 3? Or maybe the vault of souls is Broms Ring. The enless store of energy. Or maybe it is a key on finding it and entering into the vault of souls. Just my 2 bits. What do you think?

    I think he will kill of Nasuada, that way Eragon will become the leader of the Varden since he is the next in line.

    I don’t think there will be any eldunari in the VoS. That would be a kind of predictable and boring ending. I think Eragon opens it and learns something that will help him become more powerful so he can defeat Galbatorix. If he just takes energy from Eldunaris it just becomes a contest of who has the most Eldunaris and that would be pretty boring.

    Oops, I forgot some stuff. The knucklebones game… probably Angala. The evil assassin and the knife in the back… who knows, but the knife is probably a metaphor. The water-borne battering ram… maybe a city on the water is getting bombarded. And to those people who are saying Arya/Eragon/Nasuada are going to die need their heads checked. Well, Nasuada is halfway reasonable, but Eragon and Arya are two of the really main characters, and I don’t believe Paolini will kill thm off. OK, done now.

    I still think the man crying on the beach is Galby.

    I also was thinking that the VOS contains the spirits of the Grey Folk. From them Eragon learns the name of the ancient language. He then punishes Galby taking his powers from him, and makes him serve the people of Alegasia(?) the rest of his life. Repaying them for his crimes.

    If it’s not him than my second guess is Murtagh.

I don’t know why I feel this way but just from reading other series I know everyone can’t get a happy ending and I feel like Roran has drawn the proverbial short stick in Inheritance. I feel like this could be a way for Roran to cut ties with Carvahall and rule. However, what was left of him as a man at this point may not make a good King.

But before they leave, i t=dont think Murtagh and thorn will die. i think the man on the beach is murtagh and the other two dragons, Saphira and the green dragon or even thorn mate and saphira gives some her eggs to the new empire. For Murtaghs punishiment for killing Hrothgar, i think Saphira and greeni use their dragon magic and separate thorn from Murtagh and thus thorn becomes a wild dragon and is not allowed to meet or see murtagh ever again. but when a new dragon hatches for someone, i believe that thorn and murtagh will train them but that’s when they can only see each other.

    I am going to reiderate what I put the last time about my theory on the bags of flour because it seems like no one really considered it. I believe that the bags of flour are something that the varden steals from the empire. They are already low on food and have to see if its possible to feed the werecat army what they want. So the varden intercepts the food as they have been doing but instead of destroying it this time they take the well needed supplies back and this will hamper the empire because then they will have no food or energy to fight. Then this brings in a good point I just thought of for the water born battering ram. The empire so weak that they really cant fight because of malnutrition lock themselves up in a city that the Varden is trying to take. The walls are to hard to break down so “The wandering path” link their power with some of the elves spell casters and create the battering ram to break down the walls. Why it wouldn’t be Eragon is because Saphira could make mincemeat out of a stupid wall. Think of the Star Ruby SHE broke that Arya just slowed down the pieces but Saphira broke it. I dont think a wall would be that hard for her to break.

  • number1eragonfan

    To the people wondering how Eragon will train the next generation of dragon riders you are forgetting that the time of dragon riders is almost dead. The Dwarf king Horthgar said this to Eragon the first time they met and Eragon had the vision of him leaving with another dragon. I personally think that only Sapheria and the Green Dragon will live by the end of the book because Murtagh isnt gonna live in my opinion (so long as he has Thorn he is a threat to anyone, regardless of his allegiance to someone… the people have had enough with the dragon riders and the rest of them will have to leave).

    And as for the bags of flower it could be irrelevant but it might also be linked with a big meal (funeral, baby shower, victory…whatever). But i think that Nasuada will die, the trial of long knives has taken a tole on her strength and i also think that Roran will be king, (though i have NO idea how he will become leader because it will require allot more to convince him to be the leader, but we dont know what CP is cooking up.. 😀 )

    @Glaedrocks (Guest): I meant he would do that after the whole war was over. He would have completed training Eragon and Saphira and he would know that if there were ever any new riders that they could train them. After the war was over Glaedr really woudn\’t have anything to do but be in his eldunari and think about how he misses Oromis, so then I think he would want to join Oromis. I agree with your point though, if Glaedr did that well he could still be helping Eragon, Oromis would probaby be angry with him.

    [email protected] (Guest): if he does join oromis, oromis would probably get really mad at him for doing that because he then would give eragon no hope and when alll seems lost he would have to go to the rock of kuthian and speak his name to open the vault of souls and i think he will have to speak jis true name

  • DeathtotheShadows

    CP didn’t say that a person would die, just a character. So maybe the character who dies is Glaedr. Murtagh or Galbatorix may get ahold of his eldunari somehow and if he refuses to help them he might be the one who dies. I think Glaedr is going to die sometime in the book anyway because I don’t think he would want to live without Oromis for too long after the war is over. He completed his goal of training the new rider and helping end the war (assuming the war ends in the book) so he would have no reason not to join Oromis in the void.

    Let me know what you think.

    Random house publishes the series.
    We might seek clarification the Shruikan thing because I have a theory about that as well.

    Something i just realized is that everyone is forgetting that when Eragon goes to open the Vault of Souls he must speak his name. Therefore i do not think he will find the VoS until late in the book.

    I think eragons going to discover the ROK and VOS before dras leona. If you think about it a gallon of water ways 8 pounds and a battering ram made of water would way alot. Thus requiring a lot of energy. so a hundred gallons of water would way around 800 pds.

    Hmmm maybe the bags of flour will be used to block water for some reason, like you know how they use bags of sand to block water when there is flooding. Maybe they will put bags of flour around the Varden for when they are using the water-born battering ram so that the Varden\’s supplies and stuff don\’t get wet.

    I have not posted often, but I do follow the comments regularly and find this to be enough news to produce some interesting theories.

    First of all, people should lay of CP a bit. I agree that it’s taking him a while, but I don’t think the quality of the three he has put out have been disappointing, so be patient. He takes about two years to put the books out, so he isn’t that far off schedule as of now.

    To the theories:
    Knuckle-bones: i feel like this would possibly indicate that angela is in another game seeing as how she tried to cheat before when she played and lost.

    streets lined with lead- its possible this could be uru’baen… CP said that dense metals could prevent scrying, so why not the most important city in the empire?

    water-borne battering ram- someone is trying to gain entrance to a city.. my guess is the varden bc they are more on the offensive side of things at the end of brisingr.

    i think as for the death of a character, i’m not sure that the knife in the back is necessarily the way the character dies. CP seems to have them separated.. so this could be roran being stabbed by birgit (sp?)

    and i feel like the death will be a “good guy” due to the evil assassin. and i think that an assassin would be trained will enough to kill without throwing a knife in the back.. i mean that its not the best way to ensure a kill. i think it could be orrin possibly?

    as for the bags of flower.. i think it could be used as a road block? other than that no ideas regarding the flower.

    I didn’t take an exact note of the date when I first started coming on here, but I am sure that it was after Eldest was released, but before Brisingr was.(I didn’t start reading the Cycle until Eldest was already out, because I remember reading the second book immediately after the first but having to wait for Brisingr.) It was also before the change in the layout, before Shur’tugal looks like it does now. The first time I actually began commenting, I think, was in the first thread where we got to submit questions that would be posed to CP. I was lurking on the site without registering or commenting for quite a while before that, however.

Think about it, a dragon could easly (sorry spelling) be mistaken for some kind of monster which, they sorta are. And also dragons can hold their breath for a very long time so could stay under water for a while.

Unless CP invents Nessi the Lockness Monster I don’t think there is a giant monster in the lake, but hey u never know. I was also thinking that with Gladur’s help he lifts up like half the lake or a river and washes Dras Lenos out sparkling clean.

  • thok

    So, if he\’s still writing a chapter that is killing someone off i\’m guessing we have another year left. i understand the need to have down time, but considering he was over 100 pages into the book before brisngr came out, this book better be as thick as the bible. i have to admit i\’m a little disappointed. i know he\’s relatively knew at this writing thing, but other writers seem to put out novels at a fairly regular interval.

    Roran’s child. What will it be? Boy or girl? Will Eragon Bless it like he did Elva, except this time an ACTUAL blessing? Will it become a rider? What of Katrina, she said she would leave the Varden when the child is born? Will Roran be able to uphold his oath he swore at their wedding that they will return to Carvahall again?

    A great twist would be Katrina becoming the next rider and leaving with Eragon and a delegation of elves to Alalea—thats my thought? 😛 Lol

    Maybe Eragon gets a tip to brake the walls of dras-leona by glaedrs eldunari, by to born a big water-monster(battering ram) from the leonalake, and it may crush the walls and the varden attacks the city??

    I believe that the dragon had already hatched. After all, it has been like 5 years or more since CP wrote Eragon, and the phrase Dragon hatchling… I personally feel that the dragon had hatched, but Galbratorix came in and killed the almost-Dragon rider and touched Shrukain (spelling, I know) himself.
    The.one- No, it shouldn’t be.

    @Baboo: As well as the stealing of Saphira’s egg that is often retold differently throughout the cycle, i find this too to be confusing.

    I would only say that it would be more seemly (in a brutish fashion) to believe that Shruikan had indeed hatched for another rider–which would help with Oromis’s explanation of their “perverted union”. 🙂

    Hey Mike and Chris,

    First of all my condolences to Mike.

    Secondly, I know that you guys aren’t taking questions for the next Q&A, but I was hoping you could maybe ask CP for some clarification on a previously asked question.

    In the first post-Brisingr interview CP said:

    “Ah. We’re speaking about Shruiken, correct? Well, if you remember, actually now I’m forgetting whether Shruiken was still in his egg or he’d already hatched when … No, I think Shruiken was still in his egg when Galbatorix stole him, which would mean that Shruiken never paired with another Rider.”

    On pg. 33 of Eragon, Brom says:

    “Galbatorix convinced Morzan to leave a gate unbolted in the citadel Ilirea, which is now called Uru’baen. Through this gate Galbatorix entered and stole a dragon hatchling.”

    In the next Q&A can you just clarify if CP was mistaken or if Brom mistold that small detail?

    Thanks.

  • Baboo

    Hey Mike and Chris,First of all my condolences to Mike. Secondly, I know that you guys aren’t taking questions for the next Q&A, but I was hoping you could maybe ask CP for some clarification on a previously asked question.In the first post-Brisingr interview CP said:”Ah. We’re speaking about Shruiken, correct? Well, if you remember, actually now I’m forgetting whether Shruiken was still in his egg or he’d already hatched when … No, I think Shruiken was still in his egg when Galbatorix stole him, which would mean that Shruiken never paired with another Rider.”On pg. 33 of Eragon, Brom says: “Galbatorix convinced Morzan to leave a gate unbolted in the citadel Ilirea, which is now called Uru’baen. Through this gate Galbatorix entered and stole a dragon hatchling.”In the next Q&A can you just clarify if CP was mistaken or if Brom mistold that small detail? Thanks.

    quote from MaggiMcL (Guest)

    Whether or not the knife in the back is literal or metaphorical it still symbolizes betrayal. It has become a cliché because, in times of war or strife, a person would only ever take their eyes off of (or turn their back to) someone they trusted completely. To be able to literally stab someone in the back the stab-er would need to be trusted by the stab-ee enough to get very close to them with their guard down.
    I believe this is metaphorical language but either way someone will be betrayed.

    I love the truth and thought that was placed into this part of the post. One thing is when Eragon was in the city of the Dwarves trying to get the new king/queen for the Dwarves for some reason he couldn’t sense the assasins that snuck upon him. He just barely heard the shuffling of the feet. i can’t remember if he was almost elf like at this point in the story but if he was then the assasin could use the same tactics and weapons to “stab” the person in the back before he/she is caught.

    @UnfortunatelyaHuman (Guest):

    Why did I change my name? When the new comment system came up and I had to register all over again, I figured that if I was going to change my name, that was the time to do it.

    I thought “Emperor” was more fitting than “king”, since “The Empire” shouldn’t be ruled by a king at all.(I have to wonder why the title used by the ruler of the defunct Broddring Kingdom is still used in modern-day Alagaesia.) Emperor was more grand and fitting, a title more worthy of the ruler of Alagaesia. Besides, it had that added appeal as a true acronym to boot. “AHKM” isn’t really a word, while “AHEM” is.

    Like I said, I’d change it again, but no one would recognize it unless I made it painfully similar(e.g. “Kneel Before Murtagh”) or added a postscript to it(“Name X, Formerly Known As AHEM”), and that’s not really what I want. I kind of regret giving myself a name that has such an obvious implication of fanatical Murtagh-worship.

    Some really good comments… some super repetitive ones. I sometimes wish more people would take the time to read through what’s already been said and advance the conversation more. But I digress…

    The bags of flour make me think of a flood of some sort. Like how you would stack bags of sand on a bank or street to absorb water and help stop flooding. This could also tie into a water born battering ram. Not sure how this would work in the story though.
    More likely it is some Varden issue Nasuada is arguing to show the menial tasks involved in her leadership (like the stolen chickens).

    I believe this is metaphorical language but either way someone will be betrayed.

    I agree with whoever said (its been some pages back, apologies) that this section could take place over several chapters and that all of these clues do not necessarily correlate. I think trying to tie all of this too closely together will cause us to come up with some seriously strange scenarios.

    Someone else mentioned the subjectiveness of the word “evil” and that if this section was from a different POV it maybe a Varden assassin trying to kill Murtagh etc. I LOVE this thought and think that this would be exactly the kind of thing CP would give us so that he told us the truth, generated excitement and gave very little away.

    Theendispossible: I too like to try to think like a writer. I think many theories can be debunked by simply asking “how could this help to story to progress”. In this vein I agree with the theory that it will be Islanzadi who dies because it will force Arya to choose to be a Queen or an Ambassador (or a rider?) and helps with character progression.

    AHEM: I like you’re comments as well. I think CP has spent too much time developing Murtagh’s duel nature to have him not end up being both important and heroic, and I don’t think this thought process would make anyone a “fanboy”. I enjoy anyone who develops interesting, original theories and is articulate in presenting them (with grammer and spelling to boot!).

    I also think that the green dragon has not hatched and im not to worried about it either, only because I remember in the begining of Eragon’s training, he killed a SHADE which is very hard to do.. I think only 3 or 4 people or elves have done it. So if Eragon trains the new Rider correctly the new Rider will be able to put up a fight.

    AHKM? I didn’t think there was anyone still on the site who remembered when I still called myself that.

    I see your point. One of the other main reasons why I rarely really converse with anyone anymore is because most of the time, the discussions eventually go off into miscellaneous theories that are off-topic, which I usually don’t bother to correct. Whenever I so much as point out, “this theory won’t work with what’s been established” or “that bit of information you’re working on is incorrect” everyone tends to overreact, unable to tolerate the unforgiveable rape of their beloved little theories. It just seems a tireless and thankless chore to try to correct all of them, especially when the discussion goes off-topic.

    By the way, “blindeded” was intentional. I deliberately put several spelling errors in the sentence in quotation marks, because that’s how the people who argue with me usually type.

    i dont think the green dragon will have haatched yet, in the fight on the burning plains murtagh told eragon that the last two egs were both male, if thorn hatched for murtagh then he was obviously in the room where the eggs were kept and i think galby would have noticed if the green one had hatched or was missing, there are other ways of advancing the maturing of the dragon, i mean the dragons did it to eragon so y couldnt they do it 2 another dragon?

    iv not seen any1 mention all of the energy brom stored up in Aren (the ring) i think it is most likely that eragon will kill galby with his new sword and with ‘brisingr’ using all of the energy stored in aren in one go.
    it makes sence, y else would cp make so many references to brisingr in the series, brom uses it first, its eragons first magic, he shouts brisingr when he kills durza, his sword is called brisingr, he uses it to open the gate and break the wards at feinster…. its gotta be used 4 something big in the next book

  • Cally

    @xBaboo (Guest): I always thought that Galby forced a the bond on Shruiken after he hatched. I thought it was just before his original rider touched him or right after. But Galby may have used dark magic on him to make him hatch. Also I thought it was luck that Galby ran into Shruiken. It’s just what I thought.

    Christopher: The plural of “Eldunarí” is, in keeping with the rules of the ancient language, “Eldunarya”.

    ——————

    And I was probably wrong about Shruikan too, but I do vividly remember CP saying somewhere that Galby killed Shruikan’s original Rider. Anyways, he definitely said this (copied form the first post-Brisingr interview):

    CP: Ah. We’re speaking about Shruiken, correct? Well, if you remember, actually now I’m forgetting whether Shruiken was still in his egg or he’d already hatched when … No, I think Shruiken was still in his egg when Galbatorix stole him, which would mean that Shruiken never paired with another Rider.

Anyways, he definitely said this (copied form the first post-Brisingr interview):CP: Ah. We’re speaking about Shruiken, correct? Well, if you remember, actually now I’m forgetting whether Shruiken was still in his egg or he’d already hatched when … No, I think Shruiken was still in his egg when Galbatorix stole him, which would mean that Shruiken never paired with another Rider.

    Just finished reading all the post i think that a bond could be made after a dragon hatched because if you all remember in one of the q&a there was a question posted about what would happen if a dragon bonded with someone that wasnt meant to be could it be undone. CP said that it would be really bad if it happened and that it could be undone. (ibelieve that he said that last part but i do know that he did say it would be really bad). So who knows. Also whoever posted that comment about arya asking eragon when coming from ellesmera if all was alright, maybe she knows that there is another dragon but has been sworn to secrecy like the whole elven nation with glaedr and oromis. or maybe its her dragon that she is already hiding and waiting for him to grow so that she can join in the fight as a real dragon rider. Remeber the segy ignasia (spelt it wrong i know sorry dragon rider symbol) can be hid really really easily like brom did. well thats what i think for now. Oh also before i go i am sorry if my thought process “offends” people oh well its how i think. Just trying to think like a wirter would.

I don’t think it would be possible else Oromis and Glaedr would’ve told Eragon and Saphoira when they told them about the Heats (well more so Eragon) … just wondering 😀

    @Tulkas: Well I was just theorizing that, Galbatorix has lined Urubaen or wherever he keeps his eldunarya with lead to prevent the elves from scrying and knowing where to look for the eldunarya. (example: Elf knows certain dragon and scrys him to find his eldunari.)

  • Tulkas

    @Turkey: Well, scrying is a form of magic. “Dream stare”
    lucius- Remember how in Eldest it said that Eragon was, now he was an elf, more powerful in swordplay than Murtagh, but he had been in a battle and he was using the energy from his belt/Zar’roc to fuel his energy? Well, to fight the elves Galbratorix would either hack into their minds, blast them with energy, or use the energy to fuel an enhanced swordplay thing… so, my thing was that if the lead blocks eldunari from transferring power to him, then Eragon can be victorious.
    DuSundavarFrehor- Galbratorix cannot store an infinite amount of energy within him. It’s why the magic users use gems instead of bark, for example, to store their energy. While he may have transformed into an elf, wouldn’t Oromis have told Eragon of this? He must rely on his eldunari. Also, the plural of eldurnari is eldurnarya or something that ends in arya. Furthermore, when asked, CP said that he did not remember the eggshell. But I doubt that a dragon and rider could live for long in the middle of the elves forest without detection. And I think that the struggle of both things would destroy her mind.
    oromismaster- Eragon is better at swordplay than any human that does not have his/her abilities enhanced with magic.
    Baboo- That is the best idea for the streets that I have heard so far.
    clariba666- Yes, perhaps the bags of flour are thrown at invisible soldiers to render them visible.
    Many characters will die. If you assult the capital of the solitary most powerful force in existance, which can draw upon a near limitless store of energy, you are bound to have massive casulities.

    @oromismaster (Guest): I would say there are two ways to become the rider of a hatched dragon, one is highly unlikely to occur, and the other is highly undesirable.

    The first would be to follow in the footsteps of Eragon I and Bid’Daum, but I think that that would require a wild dragon, and one that would submit to being ridden. The second would be to follow in the footsteps of Galby and Shruikan, and that require a whole lot of dark magic. Personally I don’t see either happening in this series.

    ————————-

    Now for a thought on the knucklebones.

    I should start by clearing the air on a few items. First, it doesn’t say that they have to be dragon knucklebones, or even involve actual knucklebones for that matter, it could just be the name of a game (i.e. the game of bridge doesn’t involve a bridge). Second, fortune-telling isn’t really a game. And third, based on the first 2 points Angela does not automatically have to be inolved. However, with that being said, my theory involves dragon bones, fortune-telling and Angela. And in fairness it’s more of a neat idea than a solid theory, I would actually be a little suprised if it was true.

    Okay, what if the knucklebones that Angela uses to tell fortunes actually belong to Galby’s old dragon? If this were the case, would Galby have any influence on the fortune being told? This could mean that either Galby is conciously influencing the results somehow, or that the dead dragon is somehow doing it (either conciously or unconciously and possibly through an eldunari).

    It would just be interesting if the fortunes were somehow misleading for Eragon. This could be considered a “one-sided game of knucklebones”. Obviously the fortune was told in the first book, but the realization could occur in the section that CP is currently writing.

    I’ve noticed that you write long, detailed, sensible comments (as have others, undoubtedly), and I appreciate them. I do understand that you’re annoyed by all the idiots who assume you’re biased, but what with your coldly logical answers to those idiots, I’d’ve thought you’d continue to display your intelligence. You (among a few others who are equally witty and thoughtful) are one of the people who make the comments worthwhile to read. It seems to me that most others simply paraphrase their opinions, theories, etc. repeatedly.

    I suppose what I’m trying to say is that it satisfies me when those “idots”, as you put it, are brought to see sense, and even if they refuse to, the other readers do see. I guess I could be one to correct them, but (I look quite the idiot/insecure person saying this) I don’t believe I have a right to correct them, as I don’t see myself as very intelligent. Furthermore, I’ve not read the books multiple times, only once each, and I might make a mistake in correcting someone else’s.

    I’d appreciate it (if I’m not asking too much or acting like a beggar) if you continued to correct people’s blunders – at least some, here and there.

    And I’ve no right to assume this, but I’m guessing that many people (I hope more than the people who DO) DON’T believe you’re biased.

    And… “blindeded”? AHAHAHA.

    So i just got done reading all of the post after being gone for a few days, so here is what i think.

    The idea that Eragon finds an abundance of eldinari doesn’t seem realistic to me. What Eragon finds in the VoS is something with a great power. Power can be knowledge, and knowledge is what i believe he will find.

    For Eragon to even find the VoS and the RoK all hope has to be lost. For this reason i believe this will happen when Queen I. dies. I think she dies by the assassin mentioned in the newsletter. And for the reason of a newer generation of leaders with Arya as her successor. (Someone mentioned she is around 100 years old, but what i mean is a new leader is taking her INHERITANCE like Nasuada and Orik.) I do not think the knife-in-the-back is a metaphor, nor do i think it is Eragon killing Galby for the reason i do not think the finale to this epic series will be given away in a newsletter.

    Let me Know if you agree or disagree.

    I honestly don’t think he would kill off Angela, because she is based on his sister and I don’t think he’ll kill off his sister. And I think I remember him saying in an interview that a character was going to be killed off in book IV… aargh!! I wish he would just finish it already.

    I think that the Knuckle bone thing will be Angela casting the knuckle bones for herself because it says one-sided. For the Assassin I think it will be either Elva or another guy who was trained by Galbatorix like Drail. I have no idea what the battering ram will be but I’m 99% sure it will not be a sea monster. I think the streets lined with lead have to be for blocking magic and the tunnels under urubaen makes sense too. I think the person who will die is either Orrin or Islanzadi because Roran and Nasuada are too important. I also think that Murtagh will die at the end because I can’t picture him living. I’m pretty sure Roran will become king. I agree with the theory that the green dragon is already hatched because otherwise how would it be big enough to fight in the next book? But I also think that Arya will be the next rider and I don’t know how both of those things could come true… I just hope the book comes out soon so I can find out.

    Hmmm…. U really need to think on this word play

    Knife in the back-If you think about this there are two reasonable meanings of this. First one is obvious, stabbing someone in the back, but maybe NOT KILLING THEM. It could mean betrayal though. From multiple characters ory a group. Angela (she’s quiet nutty), Elva (insane and unstable), Bridget (against Roran), Murtagh (against Galby). However

    Death of a character-Does it say main or side? Unknown. Main probably Elva in an attempt on Eragon’s life, Angela, Roran killed or kill Bridget, Murtagh by Galby for stealing the last egg!! Who knows.

    One sided game of knuckle bones-Has to do with Angela. Maybe gambles info on the Varden.

    Sacks of flour-Now that’s hard. Maybe fake bags of money, or the assassin poisons them.

    Evil assassin-Guessing Elva, but maybe it’s Murtagh who fakes that he is free and then kills somebody. Them assassin could also be the person that bites the dust.

    Streets lined with lead-Another tough one. Could be referring to war instruments such as lead armor of solders or cannons.

    Water born battering ram-Maybe Eragon summons water to wash out a city.

    Any thoughts?

    Now then all

    I have had a thought on the one sided game of knucklebones, angela always casts the bones for other people so wouldn’t a one sided geme of knucklebones be that she has cast them for herself, meaning the game is one sided because she is the only one playing? what do you guys think??’

    @Baboo:

    That’s actually a very good point. I’m assuming, from what we know about Alagaesia in general, that lead isn’t the easiest thing to get one’s hands on, so someone would have to have some kind of resources to build an entire street of the stuff.

    But I don’t think this has anything to do with Uru’baen. I personally think it has something to do with one of the dwarf cities, and Orik is the one who’s going to be killed.

    The reason I haven’t really posted this before, is because it seems kind of excessively cruel for CP to first kill off Hrothgar and then Orik. He’s killed Ajihad, and Hrothgar–that’s two leaders down. There’s Galbatorix and Islanzadi left, so I suppose your argument seems more valid as in the odds are more against those two, but for some reason, I keep thinking that this is about Orik.

I don’t mind a character dying, as long as it’s not Eragon (which isn’t possible, because Eragon is, like, the center of the story), Saphira (I shudder at the thought), Arya (which I highly doubt would die so easily), or Roran. Um, other than that, It’s not so bad. Oh yeah, and Glaedr. The day I see Glaedr die I swear I’m going to cry so much my room will turn into a swimming pool.

    To the death of Galbatorix:
    As Fredric, weapon master of the varden, said, im sure Galbatorix will be killed from Eragon with his sword, Brinsingr.
    Other possibilities like with magic of Eldunari or whatever would be ‘”boring”.
    To Murtagh:
    I’m sure he will die, why?
    Simple, I don’t think Murtagh will leave Alagaesia like Eragon, so he had to stay in Alagaesia, but the people won’t sympathize with him. Remember, son of Morzan, working for Galbatorix (against his will) … He won’t be accepted, so I think he will be killed, maybe by Galbatorix, Murtagh could for example send the last egg to the varden, what would make Galbatorix angry enough to kill him …
    Orrin/Islanzadi could be killed, but it wouldn’t be very bad, but worse if Nasuada died (I don’t think she will).

    It is possible that the streets lined with lead could refer to a place where a large store of eldunari from the wild dragons are resting. Oromis stated that he had scryed the land for years searching for any eldunari… a lead lined resting place would have thwarted his efforts of finding them.

    My thoughts are that the evil assassin is elva. In Brisingr on page 252 it says that, “And he (Eragon) rested, and visions beset him of a circular stone city that stood in the center of an endless plain and of a small girl who wandered among the narrow, winding alleys within and who sang a haunting melody.”

    My guess is that its Uru’baen, and somehow galby gets ahold of Elva and turns her into an evil assassin. As for the knife in the back, I see 4 candidates. Murtagh (because he’s already betrayed Galby), Nasuada (because she is head of the varden), Islanzadi(for the reason that everyone else gives that her generation is over), and finally, and most likely, King Orrin (because Nasuada already said that she considered having a marriage between her and orrin for political reasons and by Orrin being killed, it will give Nasuada a chance to have a relationship with a free Murtagh (which is alluded to in Eragon).

    As for the other clues….Who could possibly know what Paolini means with the word play he uses? 😛

My tolerance got pushed too far, so I hardly ever comment anymore.

    In retrospect, I kind of wish I had named myself something other than “All Hail Emperor Murtagh”, and if it didn’t have an established connection to me, I wouldn’t use it at all. It gives people all the wrong ideas. I mean, I’m NOT an obsessive Murtagh fanboy, no matter what people think of me or what my online name is.

  • Baboo

    The “streets lined with lead” may be a tunnel network under Uru’baen. Remember that Jeod is looking for a secret way into the castle at Uru’baen. It’s pretty common for castles to have some sort of a network of tunnels for various reasons, and in a world of magic and scrying it would make sense to line these tunnels with lead for 2 reasons:
    – so that enemies can’t find the tunnels
    – so that enemies can’t sense people or troops that are using them for various reasons (e.g. escape, surprise attack, etc.)

    So this could mean:
    – that Galby doesn’t know about the tunnels (remember it’s an ancient elven city) and the Varden use them against him
    – or he does know about them (and the Varden don’t) and he uses them against the Varden.

    There is also a slight possibility that it’s referring to some sort of a sewer system. Old piping systems used to be made out of lead and maybe over time there would be a build-up of it in the sewers (which I imagine are made of stone in this case).

    Whatever it means, I really hope it’s referring to Uru’baen. If it doesn’t then there’s a good chance that we won’t be seeing this book for a very long time.

    There are two people that I think are pssible to recivethe “knife in the back.” Possibly three depending how far he is in the book.

    First is Roran who is killed by Bridget or still lives and kills her.

    Next is Eragon who is harmed by Elva because remember Elva knows all of his wards and how they work. It would not kill him though and then Saphira would take her down.

    Finally Nasuda depending how far he is it could be her. Killed by the black hand berfore they last battle

    i read eragon many many times and often asked myself how the green dragon would become as tall and strong as saphira, but that he already hatched would explain that, goog theorie.
    but i don’t like that, because i think and hope, that arya becomes new rider (remember eragons vision in carvahall in gertrudes house after rescuing garrow, there were a man and a woman: eragon and arya … and two dragons …) so i’m really sure arya will be the new rider, but how can that work when greenie already hatched? if arya already knew of greenie, there isn’t any reason for her not to tell eragon and the others of im.

    finally a question, i’m actually reading eragon in english for the first time and, what means the “doctor who”?

  • Theory

    This is what i have pieced together. The dragon has already hatched. (green egg shells). Eragon came close to it. (remember that part where eragon passes that place where wild dragons used to go ON HIS WAY BACK from Ellesmera {after he gets his sword}. Afterwards arya asks him if he had any trouble on his way and eragon then says, should i have? Also the dragon has to be old enough to fight in the book.

  • DuSundavarFreohr

    @lucius (Guest):

    I am with you on this one. Galby has had a century to get ready for this fight, and he won’t be defeated easily. And I don’t remember reading anywhere thet Eragon was a better swordsman than Galby. Also, with all of the Eldunari, and servants uinder his control, he has undoubtedly “morphed” his body into something more powerful. In Brisingr, Eragon tells Roran he could make him faster and stronger, but whatever creature he took the energy from would become weaker. I have no doubts that Galby has, over the last century, drained an immense amount of energy from people and Eldunari. His body will probably be one big mass of energy, and unless Eragon can seperate him from his Eldunari (or gain a load of Eldunari himself) he does not stand a chance against Galby.

    @ Senbonzakura…. Eragon himself tells Roran that a “knife in his back” (I believe he actually uses the term blade) would kill him. Just because he is extremely powerful does not mean that he can’t be killed by a knife. Although personally I believe it is a metaphor. I believe Murtagh is going to betray Galby, and change his name, thus “stabbing him in the back”.

    As for knucklebones, Angela is more than likely the target of writing here. So far, she is the only character to have used them in the books.

    Lead lined streets could be anything, but a spot to block magic does make sense. It is said that lead blocks scrying, so it may block other magics as well (Magic from Eldunaris??) Also, as to where these “lead lined streets” are, that is anyones guess. I personally like the idea of Sharktooth Island, because it is on the map, but thus far has not been used for anything.

    For those mentioning the green egg pre-mentioned in the books. In Eldest, Eragon goes to the Rock of Shattered Eggs (might be Broken Eggs) when Saphira is sad and angry. He walks across the rock to talk to Saphira, and on the way to her, he walks by a broken egg, and the egg is green. It is a subtle reference, but thinking back, it very well could mean a mature dragon is out there somewhere waiting. I believe that greenie has already hatched, because there is a pattern with the covers. Eragon and Eldest both show a dragon who as of that time, had yet to hatch, Brisingr shows an ancient dragon. For the sake of patterns, balance and being symmetrical, I believe that greenie must be a mature dragon.

    @ jumpergirl 93
    Islanzadi dying also makes sense, for the sake of balance. I like your ideas of the next generation taking up the throne, but don’t forget that Arya is darn near 100. She is techinically not in the same generation as Murtagh and Eragon, she would be more of their grandfathers generation.

    Well I think I have run out of opinions, so I want to ask all of you something, since no questions are not allowed to be submitted this month:

    If Galby guesses Saphira’s true name, and orders her to kill Eragon, what would happen? Would her will as a dragon, or their bond take precedence over her true name? or would she kill him?

  • DuSundavarFreohr

    @lucius (Guest): I am with you on this one. Galby has had a century to get ready for this fight, and he won’t be defeated easily. And I don’t remember reading anywhere thet Eragon was a better swordsman than Galby. Also, with all of the Eldunari, and servants uinder his control, he has undoubtedly “morphed” his body into something more powerful. In Brisingr, Eragon tells Roran he could make him faster and stronger, but whatever creature he took the energy from would become weaker. I have no doubts that Galby has, over the last century, drained an immense amount of energy from people and Eldunari. His body will probably be one big mass of energy, and unless Eragon can seperate him from his Eldunari (or gain a load of Eldunari himself) he does not stand a chance against Galby. @ Senbonzakura…. Eragon himself tells Roran that a “knife in his back” (I believe he actually uses the term blade) would kill him. Just because he is extremely powerful does not mean that he can’t be killed by a knife. Although personally I believe it is a metaphor. I believe Murtagh is going to betray Galby, and change his name, thus “stabbing him in the back”. As for knucklebones, Angela is more than likely the target of writing here.

    @Tulkas:
    even if ur lead theory was correct i doubt that CP would show eragon as better at swordsplay than galbatorix … i mean if ur going to base that off eragon having the speed and strength of an elf then not only would galbatorix have gotten his ass kicked wen he first took on the riders from the first elf who tried to stab him, but it\’d also completely derail the idea that galbatorix is as fast as murtagh (who became faster cos of the eldunari). if anything and to prove his dominance galbatorix would be stronger and faster in swords play due to more eldunari and generally 100 yrs more of honing his skills

    @Seven (Guest): Thanks for the description, I’m getting closer to that mysterious lead.
    I think the “knife in the back” is metaphorical because most of the main characters can’t be killed so easily. I mean they can use magic or they are heavily guarded (like Nasauda and Orrin). It might refer to a betrayal.

    @Senbonzakura (Guest): lead is a type of metal which is used to make lots of things, like bullets, weights, buildings etc. it can also be poisonous. The centre of pencils are called “leads”, though they are and never were actually made of the metal lead at all.

    I hate how cp uses such “possibly metaphorical” language. “A knife in the back”… sounds metaphorical to me… but could also be an actual knife in an actual back! it’s doubtful, but i hope it’s elva who dies, she irritates me.

    and what are they making with the bags of flour? Personally, i hope it’s fairy cakes! 🙂

    I think that Eragon will fight Gabatorix early on, and lose his power, or it is not enough, and be rescued by Arya(When all seems lost and your power is insufficient) He will go to the Rock of Kuthain WHICH I think is in Vroengard, and open the vault of souls and either a) revive Brom, b) Take a hoard of eldunari, use broms words to release the riders of old, or c) bring back all the riders and dragons and d) reawaken Glaedr or e) Bring back the first Eragon and finally f) discover his true name (Go to the rock of Kuthain and open the Vault of Souls.

    Ways Murtagh could die:
    Pull a gollum ( killed by his own greed)
    Sacrifice himself

    Perhaps lead repels magic, and Eragon has lured Galbratorix to a place with lead-lined streets so he can defeat him, because remember that he’s better than Glabratorix at sword-play. Anyway, what cities are possible candidates here? Not just for my theory, in general? I think that lead’s toxic, so perhaps it is not an inhabited city. We have Dwarven cities, Uru’baen, and perhaps a random city on Sharktooth or somewhere. And do streets have to be in a city? Probably, but it could be avenues, perhaps asiles seperating the racks of the HoH’s. Also, Doru Areba is a city that I think will be visited by Eragon. All that we know of it is that the riders once lived there and now strange beasts live there. Also, I imagine that he must be nearing the end of Book four. Furthermore, to be designing to book cover John Jude Palancar must know the Book four title.

    Okay I’m thinking Islanzadi will die. Think about it, we have a theme here. Ajihad dies and Nasuada takes his place. Hrothgar dies and Orik takes his place. Oromis (or maybe Vrael…) dies and Eragon takes his place. Morzan dies and Murtagh took his place. There is a theme of the younger generation taking up the mantle of the older. In Eragon, Brom said something like (I don’t have my book, sorry) he was too old and it was time for a younger generation to take over. We still have a monarch with someone set up to take over. Personally, I think Islanzadi has to die in order to keep the theme.

    knucklebones indeed sound like angela, but what does CP mean with one-sided? I think that she might be betrayed by solembum. since solembem likes to fight with a knife ( in human form ) and because she uses knucklebones to predict other people’s future maybe this thime its her turn.

    my guess anyways that somebody we all don’t expect is going “to stab” another character in the back, and I mean betrayel

    and the dying character, perhaps birgit who’s claim on roran still ecxists?? about the other possible clues I have no idea. at least we all have a lot to think about.

    I don’t think the “knife in the back” is metaphorical, especially considering that an assassin and a death have been mentioned. I think it is an actual, physical knife being inserted into someone’s back. If CP had meant it in a metaphorical way, he would probably have said, “A character getting stabbed in the back,” rather than, “A knife in the back.”

    Yes, it is possible that the person who is stabbed is not the person who will die, but I see that as the most likely outcome.

    I think the battering ram is made by eragon. Its one of many spells taught to him by Oromis that we are going to see. I like the theory about the streets of lead being where the rock of kuthian is. That would fit because oromis said when he scryed for HOH’s he couldnt find any well if they are surrounded by streets of lead then he wouldnt be able to.
    If for some reason it is referring to Oromis funeral I think that would be in the beginning of the book so I hope he is farther along than that.

    something made me think when eragon found the green egg shell maybe the green dragon was already stolen and not told so Galby would make it seem like when Saphira was stolen. So if greenie has hatched he may have hatched for the old women and young women that wouldnt give names to eragon. They are traveling somewhere like brom and eragon were in the first book. The older women is the sage for the younger one and the younger one spoke with solembaum through her mind hence getting the fortune from angela and now they are off to get stronger to come back and help eragon in the last battle. if this is so that leaves arya open to be killed off. with arya gone eragon is distraught and mystery women comes and consoles eragon and they end up hooking up. Ok i know far fetched and all but its a thought.

    CP really doesnt seem so sad that he is killing someone off almost as if he enjoys it. I am thinking that the character that he will kill off is Galby. That is the only thing I can think of. Maybe the Rock of Kuthain is actually an old name for a city and so the streets are carved out of lead lined rock. Bags of flour may come from a supply train that the varden come across that were heading for the enemy encampment and which is sorely needed. I really hope that the backstabber isnt one of the urguals they have seemed to start integrating bit by bit as the last book started to finish. I dont know why but i believe that elva could be the evil assasin due to the fact that she could be angry at eragon for the curse still even angela said that she would have to watch over elva to make sure that she stayed on the right path and didnt become evil. Also the assasin could be one of the two women that eragon met that were talking to angela that wouldnt give thier names. I think that CP means an actual battering ram made of water, i think that the varden mages will pull their resorces (by the way i suck at spelling i am sorry) and make a ram to break down the gates of the city were we first get introduced to quick paw. (thats the name of the werecat king right?) Before i end i have a list of possible suspects that could get the knife in the back, Narz goh (urgal leader), Elva (still trying to help finds out there is an evil assasin trying to stick Nausada in the back like before and jumps in the way to save her), Angela (finally gets her come uppance from the werecats and gets stabbed in the back), or Jormundr (like that of elva he is protecting Nasuda and dies in the process.) well have fun with this everyone sorry if i made anyone angry

    Heck, maybe it’s Angela who gets stabbed in the back by Solobume or however his name goes. No one can figure out why they are together in the first place, and from the relationship we’ve seen of them that would be the ultimate betray of a character we know and can be killed without to much damage done. The only other characters eligable don’t have close relationships together to make a betrayal a big deal.

    Don’t forget that he could be writing a chapter from the point of view of Murtagh or Galby, and therefore a Varden could be ‘evil.’

    My first thoughts when reading the last paragraph was that he was describing not just one chapter, but the area of the book, this could be 50, maybe even 100 pages, not everything has to tie in, but if it did my money is on angela or a villans perspective.

    2010 🙂

    2011 🙁

    The cover art artist WOULDN”T be working on the cover already if the book wasnt expected for another year, heck they hammer out editting in a month, maybe two, then BOOM, published and in our grasp before you know it(pray) .Wouldn’t that be hilarious if they announced a second movie after the first ones blunder?

My memory is foggy, but you have no answers to the questions and the question “what place has streets lined with led ? who would have enough led to do so?” is not quite the most pertinent way to answer, and you provided no answer to this question, you do not have it all figured out, what place has enough lead, where would the streets be lined with lead, the only place foreseeable with that question is a dwarf city, but Eragon left that city long ago. Sorry man but, YOU DO NOT HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT, I am sorry.

    I just wanted to share this really interesting quote about the green dragon I saw while browsing for some info, \”I really think that Arya MUST be the next rider. Think about it, the next dragon is a male, Saphira is a female. Those dragons will fall in love. And remember the riders will fall in love too, bound to their dragons emotions. If someone else, like Orik or Roran got the dragon, Eragon would fall in love with them. Not to mention, Arya\’s eyes are green, her magic is green, and there is a green rider\’s sword waiting for her in Ellesmera.\” I hope you guys thought that was interesting, I thought was very intelligently thought out and witty. When he said \”green magic\”, I believe he meant her elvish powers of controlling plants. I don\’t remember all of the facts about the Inheritance series, it;s been months and months since I read Brisingr, so you guys can discuss this if you want, I hope you do, and I hope Chris raise his eyebrows and says, \”Wow, he got that spot on!\” That\’s what I believe, I hope it comes out soon, I hate having to wait for a series of books to come out, I always forget, lose interest and begin reading something else… Whatevers… Can\’t wait for it. Take some \’writer\’ steroids (JK) and get that 100,000 ton writers block out of the way so you can finish your story. Better be longgg, I haven\’t found any books that I can read all night since the series, just maybe a couple chapters at a time. GOOD LUCK! KEEP YOUR PEN SHARP!……. Boy, that\’s geekiest thing I\’ve ever said… I should do my hobbies more often.

    Ok, so re-reading the last part. I’m feeling that the “streets” lined with “lead” is more metaphorical than real. Else he probbably would have said made of lead.

    I think that it could mean that there is a funeral for someone very important and the streets are lined with people in mourning. mourning leaving a person very sad and heavy, in essence, a lead lined stread

    The “water-born battering ram” can’t really be a ship unless it’s a typo by CP.

    Water-borne (with an “e”) means floating on water. Water-born means that the water actually gave birth to it or created it.

    Just saying, i dont think the dwarves ever lived in Uru’baen. It was the elvish city of Ilirea.

    The game of knucklebones definitely has an Angela ring to it, but I dont think that it was how she one the huthvir, I think it was something else.

    I dont know what to say about an evil assassin or bags of flour, but I agree with All.Hail.Emperor.Murtagh. A water-born battering ram sounds like there using a ship (possibly the Dragon Wing).

    And the streets lined with lead could be Doru Areaba, which could confirm the water-born battering ram as he might need a ship to get to Vroengard. Those are my thoughts.

    i think that stabbed in the back means that murtagh will try to change his identity to be realeased of his vow to galbatorix when galbatorix least evpects it and thats were “a knife in the back came from” or the dwarves turn on orrin and eventually the varden.

    i think urubean could be the streets lined with lead because did the dwarfs not use to live there

    an evil assassin if you think about it could possibly be the eldunari because they are very powerful weapons and could assassinate murtagh or galbatorix because cp never said what part of the book he was working on so it could be the last part of it.

    the one sided game of knuckles could be angela playing a game with eragon to let him know about his future, or saphira and thorn fighting to the death.

    a water born battering ram could be the varden greaking down the doors to get into urubean

    and bags of flour if cp is really working on the end of the book then it could be eragon killing galbatorix and there being a gigantic feast

  • All.Hail.Emperor.Murtagh

    *Cracks knuckles

    Okay! We’ve got some new clues, so that’s my cue to connect the dots.

    Battering ram brings to my mind the idea of a siege. However, key word is “water-born.” Perhaps a spellcaster channeling a huge amount of water to knock down a gate? Or a ship, like the Dragon Wing, being used to ram something?

    Murtagh being the one killed off is highly unlikely, and I’m not just speaking out of fanboyism, there. That he mentioned an assassin, a death, and a knife in the back all in the same section is too much of a coincidence for me to ignore, and I must make the conclusion that the evil assassin is going to kill someone, with a knife.

    Since he said “evil” assassin, that’s an almost sure sign that he/she works for Galbatorix. A Varden assassin trying to take down Murtagh would be unlikely to be classified as “evil” in Alagaesia, and would have a hard time of succeeding to boot. Of course, the assassin could be a neutral but mean party, like a resentful dwarf clan, but a servant of Galbatorix seems most likely to me.

    So, I’m putting my money on an important Varden member getting the knife. It won’t be Saphira or Eragon, obviously, and it probably won’t be Roran, Katrina, or Arya. However, high-ranking rebel leaders such as Orrin, Nasuada, and Islanzadi seem like fair game to me, given that they are obvious targets and not essential to the conclusion of the story.

    The assassin is probably a new character, a trained killer like Drail. The only returning character that I see of having much chance of being and assassin and killing off another character is Elva, who is already ruthless enough, was mentioned by CP to have an important role, and can use her powers to such means. The only problem with that is she isn’t really at the time of the last book what you would call evil, and isn’t very likely to join King Galbatorix.

If it is actual then who knows… we haven’t seen the inside of Uru’baen yet. knife in the back… you all might think differently but I believe Murtagh will die (sad i know )= ). Maybe he gets stabbed? Or its a betrayal by someone else and Eragon gets “stabbed in the back.”
