Galbatorix Released as Fourth Playable Character on “Inheritance Quest”!

Inheritance Quest has officially launched its fourth playable character this week: Galbatorix! For the first time ever, fans are offered a glimpse at Galbatorix’s point-of-view as the player ventures through Galbatorix’s various experiences, starting with an innocent-yet-ambitious young Rider and leading to the capture and torture of Murtagh.

Inheritance Quest is a text-driven Inheritance Cycle Facebook game produced by Christopher Paolini’s publisher, Random House. The game allows you to play as five popular Inheritance Cycle characters — Angela, Murtagh, Saphira and Galbatorix so far — going on quests, adventures, and tasks all in the shoes of each character. Our very own Mike Macauley played a large role in the game’s development as a creative consultant and co-writer and wrote a majority of the storyline and quest text you’ll see in the game.

Want to learn more about this week’s character addition, including some behind-the-scenes information and a refresher on Galbatorix’s character? Keep reading!

Need a refresher on Galbatorix? Here’s an excerpt from The Inheritance Almanac:

Galbatorix is the once-promising Dragon Rider whose quest for supreme power has changed the course of Alagaesian history. He was born and raised in Inzilbeth (a city that has since been destroyed).  In accord with the tradition by which youngsters were presented to selected dragon eggs, he was chosen by one embryonic dragon to be its Rider.

The ferocity of Galbatorix and his Thirteen Forsworn killed almost all Riders and dragons, what is known as the Fall of the Dragon Riders. When Galbatorix killed King Angrenost of the Broddrings, he declared himself king of Alagaesia.

Galbatorix is feared, and his dream of ruling Alagaesia remains within reach. Galbatorix is firmly in control of his Empire, which spans the western half of the continent and where he maintains his vast standing armies. Galbatorix has begun fulfilling his vision of Dragon Riders beholden to his Empire, beginning with Morzan’s son, Murtagh. The one weakness that Eragon and Saphira have learned about Galbatorix is that his madness has left him with gaps in logic.

Galbatorix was a challenging yet exciting character to write for the Inheritance Quest. Never before have readers of the Cycle encountered Galbatorix close-up or in his point-of-view and we are excited to offer that for the first time. The game offers fans a glimpse at the Rise of a promising young Rider… and his subsequent downfall. Players may also experience his mind games, manipulation, and more. The quests and tasks are exciting, mad, and often-times sad.

We wish you the best of luck as you work your way through the evil that is Galbatorix!

  • Saphira7425

    Hey Mike there is a mess up in the time line. Galbatorix and Brom where not students at the same time. If I remember correct Galbatorix went mad before Brom was chosen. Although Morzan was a student at the same time as Brom

    When the game said that Murtagh was protecting Nasuada from Galbatorix I had the biggest smile on my face 😀

  • Joacoar_1

  • Anonymous

    Mike, the last qusetion refers to his last egg bein stolen, How do u no this?

    • It’s referring to Saphira’s egg being stolen, NOT the green egg.

          just thinkin bout it, shouldnt that question hav come before the one where he’s breakin into murtaghs mind? cos he gets aryas name from him, but murtagh would hav met arya after saphiras egg was stolen, so was the order  misplaced?

          • No. These are fleeting memories, scattered glimpses into Galbatorix’s mind. He’s a powerful magician — we’re lucky we were able to gather what we did from his memory. 

  • Harlem

    Sooo…Spoiler.  But is the last riddle hinting that the egg has already been stolen?

      • Codygordon

        Mike, I think people are confused because the riddles and questions were coming in an order, starting with him training, to talking to murtagh, then last question is about a dragon egg. I just figured it was the green one since the questions seemed to be going in a certain order from beginning to current.

        • I addressed this above, but I’ll re-post here just in case: These are fleeting memories, scattered glimpses into Galbatorix’s mind. He’s a powerful magician — we’re lucky we were able to gather what we did from his memory. The events won’t always necessarily be in order.

    • Spoiler: Never mind, the answer is: Thrysta Deloi

    • Would it make you feel any better to know that despite writing a majority of the content here, I still get stuck on some of the riddles? (Nick Braccia wrote all of the riddles, but the context for them was my doing… so I shouldn’t get stuck!)

      • Jeriah

        Haha, nice. I wonder…is Christopher Paolini good at riddles? Because he pointed out that Eragon’s not good at them. Anyway…bah, I still need to figure out that last riddle. And it’s the last part, too! Good grief! Okay, done ranting. lol

        • Christopher likes riddles, yes.

      In the first book. I had to look through all three of them to find it, because I went backwards. I’m so glad there’s a pile of translations in the back of each book, though, or else it would have been a monstrous chore looking for the answer.

    • Nope. Sign up a throwaway account if you have to, but it’s a Facebook app… which means it only works on Facebook. Sorry!

  • All of you answer revealers and cheaters are total party poopers! Half the fun is figuring it out on your own. 🙂

    • Caleb Palmer

      I know I’m a party pooper Mike, but sometimes you just gotta have help. Like the spell, I was completely lost, but the rest I did by myself.

      • Hey, as long as you try before asking for help… that’s what counts! 🙂

    These riddles were harder, but the hardest thing was the spell, gotta think that one through pretty well.

      what was the spell?

      • Caleb Palmer

        thrysta deloi. Look for the repeated letters, I think it’s a W and you know that it’s a two word spell. So just find a spell that has the same letter to start the first word and as the second to last letter. 

        • Danicaxgrace

          thanks. I never would have figured that out
