The Great Forest (大森林, Dai Shinrin) is a location in Suikoden.
The Great Forest covers much of the eastern portion of the Gouran region. Entering the forest brings you to the Forest of Illusion due to the barrier magic of the Six Wise Men of the Forest who lived there in ancient times. Because of this barrier, which has existed since around SY 80, non-human races, such as dwarves and elves, are not well known in the area.
Once the Scarlet Moon Empire rose to power in the Toran area, the Empire inherited the Great Contract. So as to avoid breaking its terms, the government never revealed the existence of the Great Forest to other regions of the Empire.
