Scholars believe the humans were once the most common race in all of Ashriya. The basis for this belief is that huge numbers of them died during the Great Drought. Without the physical stamina to survive, the humans became reliant on the other races of Ashriya. A propensity towards farming stayed with them through the hard years and they were prized for their skill at raising food in extremely difficult conditions. By breeding more quickly than other races, the humans have become the most populace of all races.
Most humans have returned to farming as the water has come back to the land. They are respected for their abilities with the land and various crafts, but they themselves will admit that the other races are far superior in combat, wizardry and psionic ability.
