I literally just drew the entire map of Alagaesia on part of my wall, and I just realized that the mad evil king Galbatorix honestly had nothing to rule. Surda, ahahahaha no. Beor Mountains, hell no out of the tunnels. Du Weldenvarden? It’s like double the size of your entire kingdom and full of motherfucking trees. You wish, Galby. Hadarc Desert? Omg, just try to tame that wild desert life. You would die.
He literally just had the itty bitty west coast of Alagaesia, filled with the Spine, more mountains and a few cities here and there. It’s been years since I’ve read the series and this is making me laugh hysterically.
