Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga

Explore the Wonders of the Dancing Hut

Baba_Yaga_SmCover.jpg

Rumors have been spreading in small towns and hamlets, regions isolated in the far reaches of the wilderness and cut off from major cities and trade routes. Rumors of strangeness in the forest, where the animals suddenly watch with intelligent eyes while the sound of a crone’s laughter pierces the veil of night. Rumors of young men and women disappearing without a trace in the wilderness. Rumors of a cottage that walks on enormous chicken legs.

Rumors of Baba Yaga.

Those rumors turn out to be true and the Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga has come once again to haunt, confuse, befuddle, and terrorize the far corners of the land. The Grandmother of Witches cackles in her flying mortar as she sails over the trees, a shadow in the darkness, but what does she want? Why has she come? And what strangeness awaits in her fantastic hut on dancing chicken legs? Brave heroes are needed to head out and find the answers to these questions and more!

Welcome to the Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga, an adventure unlike any other. Baba Yaga, the Grandmother of Witches, has come to town, and her dangerous and mysterious Dancing Hut beckons adventurers to brave its wondrous depths. Open the doors, unlock the puzzles, and meet the famed witch, her adopted daughters, and a host of other strange characters.

This module presents the Dancing Hut and its most famous owner, Baba Yaga, as an adventure site worthy of high-level exploration. You can use the module in many different ways, and the Adventures in the Hut section provides ways to entice characters to seek out Baba Yaga. In general, the adventure environments presented are designed to challenge a party of characters levels 11-16, but with some adjusting and focus on non-combat solutions, a party of lower-level characters could also explore the Dancing Hut.

Adventure Overview

The Dancing Hut is a legendary artifact of D&D lore, and Baba Yaga has been a component of it since its introduction. There are so many ways to detail the contents of this fabulous and wondrous site that it’s important to know what this adventure contains and its scope.

The contents of the Dancing Hut and the surrounding areas are detailed in this adventure module using a 2-page spread format, with a map of the specific area and pertinent information regarding what can be found or encountered there.

Here is a description of what you’ll find in this module.

History and Legends. The first section contains information pertinent to the history of Baba Yaga, the Grandmother of Witches, along with legends and stories concerning the Dancing Hut. Much of this information is drawn from classic fairy tales and eastern European literature, but it’s been given some dramatic spins to suit the fantastic settings of D&D. This section also contains some broad goals of Baba Yaga, legends regarding the famous witch, and details on her three distinct faces – the Hungry, the Wicked, and the Mother.

Adventures in the Hut. The Dancing Hut is a sprawling place, and adventurers traveling into its strange rooms should possess a goal to focus on so they don’t wander aimlessly. This section provides plots that can be used to entice parties of adventurers to seek out and explore the Dancing Hut.

Outside the Dancing Hut. The Dancing Hut can appear almost anywhere in the world or the multiverse, but wherever it touches down it changes the landscape around it in subtle ways. This section provides details of those changes, including its famous bone fence and interacting with the Dancing Hut itself. For many adventurers, this is the first taste of the strangeness to come.

Inside the Dancing Hut. The Dancing Hut can change its configuration to suit any need or want of its owner. The configuration presented in this adventure includes four sections – Between Layer, Outer Layer, Inner Layer, and Nucleus. The Between Layer exists outside of a defined structure, but the other layers are built like a die of decreasing size with each “face” of the die representing a room (of varying shape and design) with three exits/entrances.

The Outer Layer is shaped like a 20-sided icosahedron, the Inner Layer like an 8-sided octahedron, and the Nucleus is built like a 4-sided tetrahedron. Each room of each layer is described with a distinct map, inhabitants, and challenges designed for a party of characters levels 11-16.

Progressing deeper into the interior of the Dancing Hut requires using a special knock sequence. Some of the NPCs encountered can assist characters, while others are meant as antagonists with their own personal agendas – and some are just bizarre.

In addition to these three core layers, there are rooms accessible through the strange paths between chambers. These rooms include the personal chambers of Baba Yaga, her favored children, and rooms for the witch’s personal servants and guards. The first room entered by visitors, the seemingly normal inside of the hut itself, is considered one of these intermediary rooms.

Here's a preview of the Hut Interior and Kitchen of Blood from the product.

Magic of Baba Yaga. This section details artifacts, magical items, and curses pertaining to Baba Yaga and the Dancing Hut.

Baba Yaga, Grandmother of Witches. Baba Yaga’s game statistics in her three forms along with roleplaying notes are found in this section.

Appendix. Monster statistics from sources outside the Monster Manual are marked with an asterisk (*) in the text and reprinted in this appendix for ease of reference. Many of these creatures are found in the Monsters of the Infinite Planes book.

What is the estimated run time of this adventure

Thank you for the inquiry! The run time is entirely based on the purpose of the adventure, and can vary as much as you need it to. At conventions over the past decade I've run it in 4 hour blocks, and each time the party has had specific goals in mind (rescue the baron's daughter, fight the orc bands, stop Orcus from taking over the hut, etc.). And, due to the highly subjective nature of the hut's interior, you can change things around as much or as little as you want to fit the needs of your scenario. I hope this helps, thank you again!

Can this be run with the Mike Schley maps (originally made for 4e) or is it a completely different adventure and location?

Hello! This version is different, so the maps wouldn't apply directly, though there are a few rooms where it would be close (for example, area 6 Forge of the Blind in this version of the Dancing Hut matches pretty closely with the layout of area 22 Smithy and Toolworks from Dungeon Magazine #196, which contains the Schley maps). And there are a lot of rooms in my version which don't appear in any previous version, such as the Observatory of the All-Eye, Coliseum of Ancient Sands, and Divine Armory. I hope this helps, thank you!

Format
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.
