This one was a puzzler not because it was in the “why the heck was this on the list?” category but in a “way too many options” category.
Baba Yaga is one of the coolest ladies in Slavic Folklore and I enjoyed her stories since I first heard of her and I have fond memories of the bad ass descriptions of her T.A.R.D.I.S like cottage in the famous Dragon Magazine module. (I was going to complain about not ever being to find it again but clearly I just did)
Much as I like the cottage on chicken legs I’ve done it before and while I wouldn’t mind doing it again but the point of this exercise is to challenge yourself. Which brings us to Baba Yaga herself. There are so many options, sometimes she’s just a witch, sometimes she’s a dread forest ogre, sometimes an ancient goddess…
So here she is riding her magic flying mortar in the dark of the night.
