A Cursed Land...

in a land where dragons fly, werewolves howl, Vampires hunt, mages spell, elves chant, and there is a wee bit of order, people encounter each other.... there is a small story line created.... people die... people kill each other.... etc... you get the pic. :D
A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of woe and shattered shields when the age of man comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! by all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand! Men! of the West!
-Aragorn, Elessar, Elfstone, King of Gondor

The fact that you've put the Middle-Earth books in a category with Eragon and it's sequels makes my hair hurt with rage. It's less rage-inducing than something that makes my teeth hurt, but it's still darn annoying.

As it happens, this isn't actually the right place for a poll like this, although I could see where you'd think that. The Fantasy section is roleplaying games set in scenes like Middle-Earth, this is more suited to the Main Lobby.

I know, it made my own heart hurt to compare the great and limitless Lord of the Rings Trilogy to a small accomplishment like the Inheritance Trilogy, but, according to everyone else, the Inheritance trilogy is spectacular. me, i prefer the lord of the rings an Star Wars. they rock.

:D were you for Aragorn or Eragon ( i still think that the inheritance trilogy was inspired by the lord of the rings and starwars, i am not the only one to have said it. just go to inheritance forums check out the stuff under 'you know your pbsessed when...' forum. i do not lie.

You know, you're more right than you realise with that "inspired by" comment, but equally you're wrong. Eragon was not inspired by Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

It was plagiarised from them.

Let's examine the comparisons. First, you have the evil overlord Galbatorix (Emperor Palpatine) who was once part of a mysterious order of warriors, the Dragon Riders (Jedi Knights), but turned bad (became Sith). For years after Galbatorix (Palpatine) destroyed the council (Jedi council), many believed dragons (Jedi) to be extinct.

Eragon (Luke Skywalker) lives with his uncle and cousin (uncle and aunt) on a farm (moisture farm) in a small village. After finding a blue stone that turns out to be a dragon egg (meeting Ben Kenobi), Eragon (Luke) is forced to hide in the forest while Galbatorix (Palpatine) orders the farm and the village destroyed, killing his uncle and cousin (uncle and aunt) by his two Ra'zac (division of stormtroopers).

Eragon (Luke) becomes a Dragon Rider (Jedi Knight) through his bond with Saphira (Ben Kenobi), and seeks revenge on the Ra'zac and Galbatorix (the Empire). He is taught in the ways of the Dragon Rider (the Force) by Brom (also Ben Kenobi). Eragon (Luke) is appalled by the way the Empire (...the Empire) is treating it's people, slaughtering the town of Yazuac (destroying the planet Alderaan).

Eragon and his band are lured into an ambush, but are saved by a stranger named Murtagh (Han Solo coming to Luke's rescue). Brom dies, but reveals that he was once a Dragon Rider (Jedi Knight) before his dragon was killed. The new company of Eragon and Murtagh go in search of the Varden (the Rebel Alliance), and are forced into rescuing an elf named Arya (Princess Leia), who can lead them to the Varden (Rebel Alliance) from a prison where she is being tortured (the Death Star).

I'm bored with this, and can't be bothered to go on any further, but the fact you can replace the words in the brackets with their equivalents is testament enough

Lol well this is interesting, i really thought the vote was good. I dont get why someone would have problems with it. Aragorn was much cooler than Eragon. Eragon was seriously emo and he fainted way too much. Poor Arya having a 16/17 year old hitting on her. :roll:
