Velen was a coastal city near Tethyr. It was a naval outpost, protecting against the Nelanther pirates. In addition, owing to its coastal location, it was also home to a large seafaring and fishing community.

Prior to 1424 DR, Velen was part of Tethyr but it broke away to become an independent duchy. It was rumored that ghosts haunted the city but the people appeared to be largely ignorant or uncaring concerning the hauntings.[2]
