Cape Velen encompassed the Dragon's Neck Peninsula, which was also called the Velen Peninsula or the Tethyr Peninsula. Most of the settled land was on the coast; the interior of the peninsula was forested and connected to the Forest of Tethir to the east.
The founding clans of Tethyr originated in this part of the country.
The coast of Cape Velen was struck by an immense tidal wave on Midsummer Night in the Year of Silent Screams, −133 DR. The flooding killed a large percentage of the population of the peninsula, including all the members of Clan Tarseth, and destroyed the city of Velen.
Cape Velen was said to have been infested with ghosts. The people living there, however, did not seem much bothered by this.
|This article is incomplete. The history section needs to be expanded to include Velen's succession from Tethyr in the 15th century. You can help the Forgotten Realms Wiki by providing more information.|
