About how much would one crown be worth in dollars? And I don't mean the worth of modern crowns. I mean the worth of crowns in the books. Does anyone here know?

I wanted to let you all know about a really cool collaborative writing project we're running on the Lord of the Rings Fanon Wiki. I mention it here because one of the main characters featured in the story is Galbatorix! And who knows Galbatorix better than all you guys on this wiki, right?
The story has just begun and you can help us to author it by going HERE!

We’re excited to announce the next book we’ll be reading for Wikia Book Club is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit! Whether you’re new to Middle-earth or can recite the Elvin Hymn to Elbereth, this is a great way to celebrate the upcoming release of Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Join us on the Literature Wiki Wednesday, Dec. 5th at 5pm PST and then again on Sunday, Dec. 9th at 5pm PST (if you can only make one that’s fine too) on to share your thoughts on Hobbit-holes, diminutive Dwarves, and smoldering Smaug- or whatever your favorite topic may be!
Be sure to follow us on Good Reads and Twitter! While you’re at it, tweet @WikiReads with the title of the next novel you’d like us to Book Club.Read more >
Who is Angela? We're all wondering. Theorizing, guessing, throwing things out there, giving the proof, validizing our claims and devaluing others. But little of any importance has actually been said, least of all any common sense.
First I would like to address some oddities about Angela. Her age is the most obvious one. I laughed out loud when I saw on a forum that someone put her at 'at least one hundred.' Yes, at least one hundred. Talk about an understatement. We know that Angela is old, the question is how old. A hundred? Have you even read the books?
Galbatorix overthrew the riders about a century (though probably more) before Eragon found Saphira's egg. After that the elves went so deeply in to hiding that even Galbatorix only managed …Read more >
A brief post about the latest release. The book is slated to include:
- A new scene has been inserted into the book.
- Artwork from Christopher Paolini and John Jude Palencar.

Known in some circles as the geek Mecca, Comic-Con International: San Diego has become the place for entertainment enthusiasts looking to get their yearly fix of all things film, TV, comics, anime, toys and more. With the 2012 show fast approaching, what better place to celebrate the living, breathing embodiment of Wikia than at the ultimate pop culture event. So I am excited to announce, Wikia is going!
That’s right. We’re pulling up our Internet stakes and traveling circus-style to Southern California where we have a number of fun events planned (meet-ups, parties, interview opportunities, etc.) for the duration of the convention. But what is Wikia without you, the community? After all, is not the whole greater than the sum of its parts?…

I'm sure I probably get a large debate or not. But who would win a fight between Saphira and Draco from Dragonheart?
Some say Saphira would win because she's younger and faster than Draco. And knows more dragons powers. Some say it's Draco who is bigger and stronger and more skilled then she is because she's a rookie compared to a veteran Dragon like Draco. Who knows. Why don't you post your comments below and tell me who would win.Read more >
The results are in for the contest to find the official theme song for Inheritance and the winners are Borna Matosic and his band Meridian Mind with their song The Time of the Dragon Riders. You can listen to the track here or download it from iTunes.
In this forsaken time
While sinister powers command
A young man rises up
Will he fall or make his stand?
Of all the secrets
That are buried in this land
He found the one that
Would lay history in his hands
Into the sky
Dragon wings carry you, Eragon
Two become one
Bring justice to those that have fallen
Into the sky
Fulfill your destiny, Eragon
May the time of the dragon riders come
Relinquish your despair
A scent of hope now colors the air
A sudden spark relumines the flame
And suddenly the world's not the same

Hey everyone get as much ideas from Inheritance as you can. If we can make a list of 200 ideas for articles I will send those ideas to Gilderien to purpose them to be made into articles. Now these articles can range from foods to myths and legends to magic, just remember they cannot be a stub article and have to be able to be built upon.
If you get any ideas for articles just send them to my talk page (here) so I can send them to Gilderien, or write them here in the blog. Thanks for reading.

This is the Inheritance version of the Les Miserables song "One Day More." This scene is set in and around Uru'baen, the night before the final battle. Tell me what you think.
Murtagh: (sitting with Thorn)
One Day More!
Another day, another destiny.
This never-ending road to Calvary;
These men who seem to know my crime
Will surely come a second time.
One Day More!
Eragon: (clasping Arya's hand)
I did not live until today...
How can I live when we are parted.
One Day More...
Eragon and Arya:
Tomorrow you'll be worlds away.
And yet with you my world has started.
Nasuada: (in chains)
One more day all on my own.
Eragon and Arya:
Will we ever meet again?
One more day with him not caring...
Eragon and Arya:
I was born to be with you.

This morning, while searching for new fantasy novels on Amazon, I accidently typed "Inheriwiki" into the search field and through an involuntary reflex left clicked on search. In doing so, I discovered the following travesty:
What, for a start, is it? Why is there a picture of a book of major conflicts in the Star Wars universe and why is it here, adorned with a stock photo of a flower? Why are there four of them? Who is making money out of this? How did this get under the radar? Who buys these books anyway?
If you are wondering, no, I don't endorse these products. Such information as is contained therin will be from November at the latest and hence out of date. Advertising may be advertising but this is ludicrous.Read more >

As all registered users of Inheriwiki probably have noticed, the activity on the Inheriwiki is very low right now. There are only a handful of users that contribute to the wiki and most are administrators, and the rest being random wikia contributors. Does anyone have any ideas to possibly increase the activity on the wiki, user or non-user?. Anyway of promoting the Inheriwiki more and getting our word out there to the fans of the Inheritance Cycle? Anyway of drawing fans from other fan sites and directing them towards this one? All ideas willl be greatly appreciated.
Thanks. --Talk 05:54, January 30, 2012 (UTC)Read more >
It's hard not to wonder why there are so few mentions of the Urgal Dams in the entire Inheritance Cycle. Personally, I find Urgal's fasinating and when i learnt about the extraordinary feat that Eragon acomplished in Inheritance (Trying to to give away any spoliers here) i was drawn even more deeply into the series. Right at the end. Yes....bare with me.
So, inside my brilliant mind....(right!) i devised a plan. A plan to write a story/ novel/ fanfiction ect ect about Urgals. More specifically, about a Urgal Dam that has been choosen by a dragon egg to be its rider.
I'm purely doing this for a laugh...for myself. Ha!Read more >

According to Quantcast Inheriwiki reached an new record number of 12,000 visitors per day during the last days since Inheritance was released.
When Brisingr was released there were about 4,000 visitors per day if I understand this correctly.

What's up, my fellow bretheren? In my timezone, Inheritance releases tomorrow! For me, that's even better than COD:MW3 coming out! However, I have noticed a rather pecular thing:I've tried to visit Shurtugal.com, but it says it's OFFLINE!! Why? Is it because of traffic over Book 4 news cause it's released in their timezone, news over Murtagh's and Thorn's possible deaths or matings, or is Mike McAuley just being stupid? Please alert me on my Talk page when Shurtugal.com is back up! Thank you!Read more >

I've been looking at the ancient language of king, queen and princess and been wondering what prince be in the ancient language. My guess that it would be Könungru since princess would be Dröttningu (which came from the ancient language word for queen, Dröttning). But still....... if you know what it actually is then please feel free to type your guess on to my talk page until we get our answer from Christopher Paolini himself.

who were the dragons in eragon's dream (the one with the boat, the dragons and the man crying on the shore)
one of them must have been thorn because he was red and the other one probably was'nt saphira. because in the dream eragon mentions that he saw two dragons, but would'nt it make sense (if it was saphira) to say one dragon and saphira circling above. so the other dragon must be greeni.
and for this reason i think saphira might die and go into her eldunari. leaving dragon's nearly extinct, and that might be why there are people boarding a boat they might be going to seek out female dragon's across the sea.Read more >
there are pages on riders before the fall but all of these pages tend to have little or no facts on them. (some of the facts on their dragons and races are wrong).

does any one have any ideas about what the rock of kuthian might be.
I would like to here some fresh ideas on the matter. because I am confused about it.
I think that it could be something to do with the grey folk (the people who bound magic to the ancient language)because oromis thought they had been destroyed, however I believe that the urgals may be the grey folk but their power was destroyed by the binding of the ancient language.
so the rock of kuthian may be a gem storing energy and maybe even knowledge (the grey people may have been powerful enough to do this). Eragon will then find it and return it to the urgals they will then become more powerful than the elves and more civilised then they will help destroy galbatorix.Read more >
Dear Inheriwiki team,
I have been nominated for adminship in the German Community Central Wiki recently.
The voting started last friday, july 15, and will end two weeks later, on july 29. There have been two rival candidates, one gave up so there's still one. You can see the candidates here and/or vote for me HERE. :o)
Your support would be hugely appreciated!
Thank you in anticipation.

Last night at Book Expo in New York, Christopher Paolini shared with us a new, action-packed extract from Inheritance, taken from the first chapter, Into the Breach. Read on for the latest developments:
The sound was stabbing, slicing, shivering, like metal scraping against stone. Eragon's teeth vibrated in sympathy, and he covered his ears with his hands, grimacing as he twisted around, trying to locate the source of the noise. Saphira tossed her head, and even through the din, he heard her whine in distress.
Eragon swept his gaze over the courtyard twice before he noticed a faint puff of dust rising up the wall of the keep from a foot-wide crack that had appeared beneath the blackened, partially destroyed window where Blödhgarm had killed th…

Its been so long since I've last been on here. I remember when I first came arrived, that this site was nothing more than abandoned, and since then it has been restored to become an amazing wikia, no doubt because of the community that's worked on it for so long.
Alas, I wish I could be on here to work with everyone, but I simply do not have the time to do so. So it is with a heavy heart that I resign from my position of admin, and move on to better things. You may see me lurking around at times, but this is probably the last you'll here from me.
So thanks to everyone (especially Weas-El; you've done an amazing job), and happy editing for the future.
I added a little color to talk pages and forum pages. Many inexperienced users seem to have problems to differentiate between articles (allowed to change all content, no signatures) and talk/forum pages (not allowed to alter others' comments, signature required). I hope the background color helps to bring out the difference.
What do you think? Does this make sense? --Weas-El Talk|Contribs 10:43, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

I was looking at the covers for each of the books and I noticed that the scales of Saphira and Thorn are smoother than the scales of Glaedr and Greeni. I think this rules out the idea of Greeni being a 'new' dragon, he/she might be something similar to Glaedr and Oromis, or a wild dragon.Read more >
I spent a good deal of time some while ago writing a my long blog "Book IV Predictions", which I regret closing comments on. None the matter though. Since writing that blog, I have not only read and reread it, but read and reread other fans blogs/predictions as well. As you can see, I wrote that blog in 2009. It is now 2011. My thoughts have changed.
Let me begin by saying that upon rereading my old blog, I realize how concerned with detail I was, when in fact I should be more concerned with concept. After Paolini released the title for Book IV, "Inheritance", I began reflecting on my old blog, and other fans' blogs, and realized how naive we all were. "Inheritance" is truly the simplest title for the book, and the best title for the book a…Read more >
Here is a theory which has some support among a number of fans:

Humans and Elves are actually the same species, but the elves have been changed by their connection to the dragons. This process is now affecting the Humans, and they will gradually transform into elves.Read more >
The title is here, the cover is revealed and we (finally) have a release date. Christopher Paolini's Inheritance cycle will conclude with Inheritance, released on the 8th of November 2011. The full announcement may be found here.

According to Shurtugal.com, in February 2011, Christopher Paolini was writing a scene which involved "a stone table, a brazier filled with glowing coals, a man with impeccably groomed fingernails, and a black cloak."
The main theory at present is that this scene will include Galbatorix. Could this be the first appearance for the man we've waited so long to see?Read more >
when will eldest the movie come?Read more >
That cryptic statement was the latest news from Christopher Paolini in the March 2009 Alagaesia.com newsletter, but what could it mean?
At the point of writing, Paolini had worked on the book since October 2008 and he typically takes three years to finish a book and reach the point of publication. We can estimate that he had taken six months to reach this section. It is stated that this book is the longest yet and the book with the most chapters at present is Eldest with 71. If we assume that the fourth book has 84 chapters, we may estimate that he was one sixth of the way through in March 2009, around chapter 14.
It was also stated that in the fourth book we would see an elven death and burial ceremony. So, it may be assumed that an elf dies …

I'd like to request a spotlight for Inheriwiki. We've already discussed that topic here some time ago.
The requestor should be either the admin, or link to a discussion with the admin of the wiki and agreeing to the spotlight. ok
The wiki should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs. Stub articles should make up no more than 1/5th of all pages on the wiki. ok
130 have less than 300 Bytes,
126 marked with stub template)
The main page of the wiki should have at least one picture, and clear links to the most important content. It should also be unprotected unless there is a strong history of vandalism. It's semi-protected, I think that will do.
The wiki should have a clear category structure to help read…

To begin my adminship with a very Wyvern Rex. sort of question, I turn to page 76 of the paperback edition of Brisingr. Eragon has taken Sloan to the place that elves and Riders named Mírnathor, the dwarves referred to as Werghadn and the humans named the Gray Heath. I would rather like to create an article on this, but what should it be named? Arguably, the Ancient Language is the "correct" version, the dwarvish version may have been the first and the human version would be the one actually used. In this case I am not sure what to call it. …

- That the Inheritance Cycle is too derivative of other works.
- Legitimate? The strength of the series comes not from its similarities, but from its differences. Each series includes "Tropes" that are common to all works. If the series contains something that is similar, it may simply be homage, especially if names or circumstances are exactly the same. Keep in mind that much of Star Wars is based on The Hidden Fortress.
- Warfare - Fun
