I got told this story every time I misbehaved >.<  I was so scared and I got teased for being afraid of the 'Butterchurn Witch'.


            Russian joy.

I thought this was a tribute to the Ragnarok Online monster. I didn't know it was it's own entity.

she steals the bones and skulls of her victims and crushes them to powder, which she uses in potions and incantations

DO you by any chance know where I can find more info on slavic folklore online or elsewhere? Especially different versions of Baba Yaga/Hut on fowl's legs? Can't really find anything

I have a weird fascination fixation with Baba Yaga. But she's not Russian, she's Slavic.
