  • Immutable Form. Baba Yaga’s Hut is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.
  • Magic Resistance. Baba Yaga’s Hut has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Unhealthy Boundaries. When Baba Yaga’s Hut sits on the ground, a fence made of human bones rises up out of the ground and surrounds the construct. Menacing human skulls decorate the ghastly fence.

A clump of trees is parted on the edge of the woods and a wooden hut with long chicken legs appears. It pauses for a moment and then races through the woods. This is Baba Yaga’s hut, the mobile home of the infamous witch.

Dead and Breakfast. Some legends speak of people who found their way into the hut and never came out. Whether these unfortunates died, or if they’re still inside is an open question.

Spacious Home. Baba Yaga’s Hut is filled with numerous chambers, as well as her minions. It is much larger inside than it appears on the outside. There are sleeping quarters, sitting rooms, grand halls, gardens, servants’ quarters, alchemical storage rooms, and more.

Mortar and Pestle. The witch also stores her magical mortar inside her hut. When Baba Yaga flies around in this smaller construct, she sweeps the air with a birch broom to cover up the tracks she leaves behind.
