The Devil's Mother, Baba Lysaga. A CR 25 Version.


After some delay the follow-up of the CR27 Devil Strahd is here!!

The Devil's Mother, Baba Lysaga is cackling in her flying skull under a blood moon waiting to obliterate anyone mad enough to challenge her son or her! 

This document contains a cr25 Version of Baba Lysaga, The Devil's Mother and the queen of all Barovian Hags. This is a follow up to "The Real Devil Strahd " CR27. I felt that the book version was pretty weak compared to the discriptions of Baba Lysaga. According to the lore, she is the one who baptised Strahd into the art of dark magic and was the first one to make a pact with the Mother Night.

This version is made to be used only under extreme caution as it is quite deadly and will most likely result in a total party kill if used incorrectly. the players will have to fight not only the hag
but the Swamp itself.

You have been Warned!

What you get:

- A CR25 statblock of Baba Lysaga!

- A CR14 statblock of her Hut!

- An empowered version of her flying Skull!

- New Lair and Legendary  Actions!

- 13 new spells!

- Ritual to bring Lysaga back to life if she somehow dies and an idea for a possible quest to stop her revival!

- The final part of Strahd's Lullaby!

Hey, so I happen to be setting up to DM CoS, and in your content of "The Real Devil Strahd" Strahd can be weakened (Like with the artifacts, fanes, heart of sorrow, and an ally) but how would a group of fairly-high-level characters be able to kill Baba Lysaga? I've thought of maybe stopping her from completing her blood-ritual, which might kill her by severing her connection to Mother Night, but past that my ideas seem to dissipate. With Strahd, his CR 27ish battle is only for the final encounter, but Baba isn't restricted by his schemes. Maybe I'm missing something, but do you have any thoughts?

Hey Erasmus! One way is indeed to stop her from bathing under a blood moon. Other ways would be to kill her hut and skull when she is not around, the players could even use the help of the wereravens by causing her trouble and or sabotaging her / stealing her items etc. Also dont forger that Lysaga has some wereravens and ravens trapped inside her bird cages, your players might wanna free them ;)

Awesome! Thank you so much! And also, in Strahds lullaby, how would Baba Lysaga know that he would become a vampire (Like in the last part of the lullaby it says "vampire-to-be child")? At the time, Strahd was but a baby, and I don't know if Baba classified as a witch back then, but did she use some divination to foresee this? And I know that I'm getting really technical with this, but I'm guessing Queen Ravinovia didn't sing the last part to him---so how would that actually impact him?

Lysaga was singing the lullaby in secret, and it is mentioned in the lore that strahd can cast spells because Lysaga was performing rituals on him when he was a baby, it was also the reason why she was ousted when Ravenovia found out. Lysaga was always a hag and she had made a pact with Mother night way before Strahd was born. Ofcourse we know that mother night is not an actual deity but a dark power posing as one, so the way I see it, is that the Power used Lysaga as a mean to put Strahd on the path that would make him the monster that he is :). We could also assume that the dark power posing as mother night and the dark power posing as "death" is one and the same. The Vampyr. Children of the night? ;)

Oooooo . . . wow. I understand that at the time, Vampyre was locked in a sarcophagus, so was it really that powerful--or did the pact involve some component that disregarded the distance? Why would it want Strahd of all people? Would Baba Lysaga need a specific place to complete the blood-moon ritual?
And finally (Yes, this should be my last question :) ), in the supplement it mentions 'Lisaga Hill', and I'm wondering where I can find that

The vampyr was not as powerful as it became after throwing the domain into raveloft and thats why it might have needed lysaga. I am not really sure if the blood moon ritual needs a specific place, strahd had the full package of a man who spent his life to please others, never got something for himself, not even a thank you, he also had power as he was of a noble bloodline. There are plenty of reasons why he was "chosen". Lysaga hill is near barovia village on the road to vallaki before the waterfalls. If you want to discuss further with me, look for my page on fb "Mistfactor Press" and send me a message :)

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
