Okay, so before you read this, understand that I don't know whether we have one or not. I'm very experienced with the application and would happily create a server for my favourite book series! Of course the Admins will have the final say in the matter but I think it'd be a really fun idea. I'd like to hear your thoughts.
What's on your mind?
If you can't lie in the ancient language, can someone write fiction stories because technically fiction isn't true?
When is it said that Kialandi's spell shortened Oromis's life? Was it in Eldest or the deluxe version of Brisingr?
Okay so this might be a bit far-fetched but Angela and Solembum may have a bond similar to Eragon and Saphira’s bond and this could be why they are so loyal to each-other, and also why they choose not to make formal alliances with anyone else. Other theories suggest that Angela is not human and this could explain why she was able to make this bond with Solembum. I thought of this at like four in the morning whilst reading inheritance (when Eragon is trying to figure out what the deal was with the Rock of Kuthian) and Solembum has blue eyes- could this be a side effect of the bond?
After Glaedr lost Oromis he was in a very bad place (understandably so) and retreated into himself for a time, however, when Eragon is in dire need of more guidance before the siege of Dras Leona, he agrees to help. What I don’t understand is why he was happy to berate Eragon for the lack of mental control, but couldn’t control his anger and made himself known to the entire camp through his fury. Seeing as his existence is a secret and he could well have killed or harmed many of the Varden in his outburst, I think Blödhgarm was very right to argue with him. Opinions?
I remember when Glaedr said that Eragon could sometimes be arrogant and I find that bothersome. I've never been especially fond of arrogance but I'm not sure when Eragon has ever been arrogant aside from his demanding answers.

I think Angela's ideas of 'imaginative' names are a bit silly. A sword should have a simple but understandable name. I agree with those that say that Eragon chose the name of his sword well.
Tinkledeath might be imaginative but its a silly name. And swords ought not to have silly names.
In real life swords cannot cut through plate armor.
I feel like Eragon and Saphira could have found a different way of getting the Brightsteele without burning the tree.
I just realized that Galbatorix probably wouldn't need to have an insurance policy against Shruikan due to the 'Rider' bond he had with Shruikan. That should prevent Shruikan from attempting to kill Galbatorix. And I also think I figured out a way to counteract wards. Creating a magical dead zone around yourself or your target. Its been shown to be possible with what Kialandi did to Oromis and what the massive blades in Uru'baen did to one of the elves.

Are the Ra'zac really evil? The fact they are predators does not make them evil. I initially agreed with Arya at they are inherently evil but now I'm not so sure.
Second reading of the books and I can't stand how he made Eragon 16, makes the whole Arya love arc, which is already hard enough to believe, unbelievable. And creepy too. A long with that Eragon just seems whiny, when Oromis was teaching him and Eragon wanted to get to the magic, or when he was trying to find a new sword at the Varden after Za'roc got stolen. I find it hard to get behind his badassery when he could be a sophomore in high school. Even if in the world of alagaesia they consider you to be a man at 16, we all know you're clueless at 16. It just seems like a pretty weak character flaw just to make him obnoxious and young. I just wish he had made him like 20 or somethin.
