This is the outline I have been working on for the anime adaption. Most of the ideas and bullet points are to be credit to the users of the site. I am going have to start keeping track of who has been helping me. So far epistler, gharial, hergrim, kippurbird, minionnumber2, predak123, snarkbotanya, torylltales, ultramega10. I am missing some names right now. Please add yours if you have helped shaped the adaption I am working on. I am just trying to keep track of everyone who deserves some credit. If you want your credit to be under a different name let me know. This adaption won’t be done for years. It will still be flawed because the source material is flawed but I am keeping it as close to the books as possible.
Shur’tugal Anime Outline and Bible
(This is not set in stone and still needs a lot of work)
*Nothing is naturally immortal
-Elves live to be a thousand years-two thousand years old
-Dragons live to be 500-600 years old
-Humans live to be 80-100 years old
*Dragons stop growing.
*Dragon in the series will not be automatically intelligent. They will have instinct. I may give them a hive memory but am not really leaning that way.
*Dragons have eldunarya but they are different from the book. Eldunarya are magic powerups. The eldunarya are organs that give dragons the ability to use magic which although limited still grants the dragon the ability to use telepathy and fire and occasionally perform oddities. Dragons do not have a spoken language and instead speak through images/sounds/feelings. Thus the dragons are not able to speak the Ancient Language that can fully control magic. However when a dragon partners to a being like a elf or human capable of speech and thus able to speak the speak the Ancient Language, the bond allows the magic of the dragon to be welded by their elf/human partner in more unique ways.
Do to the magical properties of the eldunarya they have become a valuable object. They continue to work after the dragon’s death for a certain amount of time. Eldunarya were often collected and kept to improve one’s magical abilities. An eldunari can be used to empower anyone who can speak ancient language. This has lead some to slay dragons so they can keep the eldunarí for themselves.
Although an eldunarí is usually only separated from a dragon in death, there are other ways to acquire it. As the dragon riders learn more about the magic system they found they could do more and more with it. A dragon could disgorged its Eldunarí by the aid of its rider preforming a spell in Ancient Language. It was discovered that whoever held that dragon’s Eldunarí controlled it and was able to make the dragon do anything they wanted. Even more so there was a way to trapped a dragon’s consciousness in its eldunarya. This magic was considered to be dark and it was decided taboo because one was trying to control things one was not meant to control.
Also here is a random video about something that reminds me of the eldunarya from Eragon. What do you think the jewels function as in this video. Just curious as to what you think. It is a beautiful animation.
Also what can Eragon/Saphira and Eragon/Roran talk about to show they have a connection?
Pre Dragon Riders
*Grey Folk Disappear
*Angela a grey folk. She is capable of changing her appearance and hides by appearing to be a different race. She has always been an odd one. She gain immortally somehow probably though a pact with Solembum. Maybe he saved her because she or her race made a terrible mistake and she is dying.

*The egg hatches and Eragon ends up befriending and being bonded to the baby dragon instead of killing it. This may have been an event helped by Angela or Solembum. Maybe even a dragon oddity from the dragon itself.

I know a very rough outline but I will work on improving it as time goes on. I pretty much just copied and pasted any ideas I like just like Paolini. : D Just kind of interested in what other people would suggest on these points. Often adaptions alter the source material but I want to kept it kind of similar to the books. I will probably repost an altered version of this again at a later date.
