The canyons and wastes of Athas’s rocky badlands are rugged and arid. Scant plant life enlivens the desolation.
Effect: Rocky badlands contain numerous teetering stone pillars, the remnants of outcroppings eroded by sand and wind over the eons.
Usage: Homesteaders are hard pressed to survive in the badlands. As a result, few settlements exist in these areas. They are most useful as ambush sites or as locales for monster or bandit lairs.
