The Crimson Forest, otherwise known as the Forest of Sorrow, is a Numaran territory to which entry is prohibited by the Queen. As the name implies, the forest is colored crimson red instead of green. Its second name is derived from the war that was fought there.

The forest is the battlefield, and a mass grave, of a conflict between Numara and the Eastern Tribe that took place 500 years prior to the events of the game. The forest was stained with the blood of the thousands of soldiers, both Numaran and Tribesmen, who died there in the struggle. This staining brought about its color.

Eastern Tribesmen wielded Spirit Magic during the conflict, and there is a palpable residue still present. All of the creatures inhabiting the forest are able to use Spirit magic, and some of them are even entirely composed of it, most notably the Obsidian Miasma. The presence of a living spirit mage stimulates the forest, activating otherwise dormant objects within the forest.

A Numaran legend suggests that the living can be reunited with the dead somewhere inside the forest, which Mack tries to accomplish shortly after Lirum's death. Kaim and the others discover some truth to this legend after defeating the Obsidian Miasma. A spirit, described by Seth as "warm, tender ... almost tranquil" and presumably belonging to the deceased Lirum, manifests in response to Kaim's suggestion to return the wilted tindraflora, a gift from Mack to Lirum, to their garden in Ghost Town.
