Just when I had begun to think that today was looking to be another slow news day I received an email from our good buddy 'RonJon' with what looks to be snapshots of two Eragon character posters soon to be coming our way.
Eragon Character Posters
"The sands of time cannot be stopped. Years pass whether we will them or not... but we can remember. What has been lost may yet live on in memories. That which you will hear is imperfect and fragmented, yet treasure it, for without you it does not exist. I give you now a memory that has been forgotten, hidden in the dreamy haze that lies behind us..." -Brom the Storyteller
Before your grandfathers' fathers were born, and even before their fathers, the Dragon Riders were formed. To protect and guard was their mission, and for thousands of years they succeeded. Their prowess in battle was unmatched, for each had the strength of ten men. They were immortal unless blade or poison took them. For good only were their powers used, and under their tutelage tall cities and towers were built out of the living stone. Wealth flowed into the cities of Alagaesia, and men prospered.
Though no enemy could destroy them, they could not guard against themselves. And it came to pass at the height of their power that a boy, Galbatorix, was born. At ten he was tested and it was found that a great power resided in him. The Riders accepted him as their own, and he exceeded all others in skill. Gifted with a sharp mind and strong body, he quickly rose among the Riders' ranks.
I am currently re-reading Eragon and have to admit that it is even better the second time; like Harry Potter, it is amazing how many small details and hints there are. I am not here to rave about the book, however, and have what looks to be two low-res character posters that should be coming our way shortly.
I can only assume that these were prepared for this week's Comic-Con, so we will see if Fox lets us keep these up.

Fox will show off Eragon at Comic-Con this weekend, which should hopefully mean new media to appear online.
