Corrected entry: Eragon gives a blessing in the first book ["Atra gulia un ilian tauthr ono un atra ono waise skolir fra rauthr"] and in the glossary it describes this as "May luck and happiness follow you and may you be shielded from misfortune. However, in the second book, Eldest, Oromis tells him that "skolir" is wrong and he actually said: May luck and happiness follow you and may you be a shield from misfortune. But in the glossary of the second book exactly the same phrase is listed [without any change to "skolir"] and it is now described as "May luck and happiness follow you and may you be a shield from misfortune.

Correction: Since we don't find out until Eldest that Eragon gave the wrong blessing, it makes more sense to have the translation in the glossary be what Eragon THOUGHT he said, or else it would seem to be a mistake for the first book. When we find out that he used the wrong form of the word, then the translation is corrected, without changing the word 'skolir' since 'skolir' means 'a shield' not 'shieled.'

Mistakes

When Angela and Brom met in Teirm they did not appear to have ever met before. According to Jeod, when his character very first appears in the book, Brom has not changed since the last time they saw one another, quite a few years ago. Later on when Eragon is talking to Angela in her shop Angela says that shes a lot older than she looks. Nearing the end of the book, when Eragon and Angela are talking in her room, when Angela explains how she came to be in Tronjheim, Angela says that she met Brom once. But if neither of them has aged very much surely they would have recognised each other in Teirm?
