Velarswood (also known as Velarwood[1]) was a wood near the centre of Harrowdale.

GeographyEdit

The north of the wood contained a temple to Eilistraee, which was guarded by a number of drow.[3][2]

InhabitantsEdit

In 1372 DR it was inhabited by bonebats, cloakers, stirges, and trolls, as well as more formidable creatures.[2]

More than fifty Eilistraeeans lived and worshiped in Velarswood, both drow and other elves, in the Shadowtop Glade shrine. They often gathered in evensong in gratitude.[4] They were creating a surface home there and generally had good relations with local humans, whom they aided when ill.[5][6]

There was also a number of werewolves in the area. Followers of Eilistraee often joined the moon-worshipping lycanthropes, and celebrate sacred hunts in honor of Eilistraee and Selûne alongside them [7]. However, some of the Eilistraeeans were known to frequently hunt those lycanthropes that they considered to be abominations and dangerous for the inhabitants of the area.[8] In fact, those Eilistraeeans hung the lycanthrope heads on a trophy tree.[9]
