EN World Review – Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens

baba yaga coverHail, fellow Gamers!  I write this hoping that you, dear Readers, are doing well and are safe today – particularly given the terrible thunderstorms pounding the eastern half of the entire US today!  As I write this blog, the wind is howling past my window, rain pounding on the glass, as lightning blasts out of the dark skies – it’s one heck of a storm front rolling through!

Of course, storms like these are perfect for imagining all kinds of dark and sinister magicks at work, of powerful sorceries stirring the clouds like a witch stirs a cauldron – which brings us to the topic of today’s review.  For there is one witch which has been part of D&D since first edition – the Slavic hag of myth and legend: Baba Yaga!

Today’s review concerns an attempt by Escape Velocity Games to recreate this iconic witch under 4E rules, in their monster manual supplement Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens.  Sadly, I have to say “attempt” here, as this supplement falls far short of the mark.

Review of Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens by Escape Velocity Games

Baba Yaga: Queen of the Wicked Fens hardly does the old hag the attention she justly deserves, considering her previous D&D content of at least three sourcebook entries, half a dozen magazine articles, and her own module!  If ever there was a villainous “pin up girl” for the Dungeons & Dragons body of work, Baba Yaga would be right near the top of the list!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
