"The anaesthetic made froum woundberry is undoubtedly one of the most useful medicines of all times. But since the plant escaped from the apothecaries' gardens and grows wild outside the red forest, I fear how many human skeletons we will find at the roots of the young bushes."
— Sevicara, Sawan noble
Everything in the red forest is poisonous. The denizens protect themselves as best they can; gloves, breathing masks, and full body protection with double-buttoned openings are the usual attire when leaving the house, and due to this harsh environment that looks so lush but is so deadly, the people are, well, a bit grumpy. Those that have come close to them, however, tell of beautiful houses, tastefully adorned clothing, and exemplary use of the forest's fauna and flora.
