The Ghastgar was a rather unusual Dwarvish contest, in which two Dwarves rode at each other on Feldûnost from a distance of seventy feet. At a distance of thirty feet, one dwarf threw a javelin, whilst the other attempted to block it with a buckler or catch it.
Role in the Books Edit
Eragon was able to witness to this event when he was staying at Bregan Hold with Orik. One of the dwarves, who was participating in this contest, was a coward and rode away. He was duly defeated and brought shame upon his family.
