Humans have been living in the Gray Barony for hundreds of years. The area was settled during the Empire of Nerath’s expansion into the northern region. The whole area was once much more populated than it is now, with small settlements, keeps, or even castles spread around the countryside. Today, Crimson Falls is the only town left in the Barony, and all other human settlements are small farms or logging communities. Still, the human spirit prevailed and while the Empire is gone, people continue to live in the Gray Barony.
