Life is very common in the scrub plains, after all, where there are plants, there is water. Small and medium sized creatures feed on the plants, while larger predators hide among the grasses and bushes. Water can generally be found inside certain plants, or pooled a few feet below the surface. The plants provide shade for the creatures that call it home and wind that blows through the scrub plains is sometimes cooled by the plants that grow there.

Traveling through the scrub plains appears to be easy, but like everything else on Athas, looks can be deceiving. Even if a traveler is able to avoid overly-protective herders, deadly creatures, and carnivorous plants, there are fanatical druids as well. Many druids will simply watch travelers and make sure they do not harm the land. However, some druids are fanatical in the protection of the land and will drive out or kill anyone who enters their territory. After all, they might be a defiler or a defiler in disguise.
