Velos is a ruined city on the Isle of Cedars. It sits on the southern tip of the Isle of Cedars facing the Gulf of Grief.
It is said on the day of the Doom a wall of water 300 feet high descended on Velos, drowning hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children. None were left to tell the tale but some fisherfolk who had been at sea and a handful of Velosi spearmen posted in a stout stone tower on the island's highest hill, who had seen the hills and valleys beneath them turn into a raging sea. Fair Velos with its places of cedar and pink marble vanished in a heartbeat. On the north end of the Isle of Cedars, the ancient brick walls and steeped pyramids of the slaver port of Ghozai suffered the same fate.
