What are the homes that generate in the swamps called? What can you find there?

  • What exactly are you asking? The names of the buildings? Their purposes? – user1337 May 24 '13 at 17:38

    Your asking multiple questions within the same question, which isn't how it is supposed to be done here. Please separate your different questions into multiple posts. – Ender May 24 '13 at 17:40

These are called witch huts, here is the information from the wikia:

enter image description here

Witch Huts generate in swamp biomes or, very, very rarely, other biomes. Witches can spawn inside of them. The huts consist of spruce Wood Planks and oak wood. Spruce wood stairs make the roof borders, 2 fences decorate the entrance and one fence make the entrance window bars. Inside is a crafting table and an empty cauldron; on the windowsills are potted mushrooms. There's no valid way a witch can get back up into the hut if it falls off it.

There are no chests or any other loot inside. It is possible, but rare, for a mushroom to generate inside the Hut while not potted, with the potted one still in place. Strangely, they are just high enough for the witches to fit in, but their hats are in the ceiling, making the animation look broken. They seem to be based on the design of Baba Yaga's hut, a witch from Slavic folklore who lived in a hut that walked around on giant chicken legs.

  • Oh, a sudden realization that foreign people do know about characters from my childhood tales... Logical and reasonable, but I've just failed to think of it ever. – Orc JMR May 24 '13 at 18:03

    Baba Yaga is awesome. I love it when she shows up in my pop culture (Fables, D&D, etc) – Rapida May 24 '13 at 18:08
