I reckon you could impress me by contributing to it. Don't be shy now.

Bayall Edge is a cabin in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online in the Bayou Nwa region of the Lemoyne territory.

It lies northwest of Caliga Hall, consisting of a small peninsula curled into a small lake upon which sits the Bayall Edge Shack.


The facade of the building appears worn and derelict. The interior, however, is quite the contrary.

The inside is dark, with numerous paintings scattered around the floor. On the right of the entrance is a long table with candles and a stuffed crow on a podium. Around the room are references to the story and player's choices, such as a nightstand to the left of the entrance which has a poem carved into it about Jimmy Brooks, and whether he lived or not. The paintings picturing animals around the cabin may also constantly change depending on the player's current honor level: eagles and bucks if high honor; vultures and coyotes if low honor.

In the center of the room stands an unfinished painting, which gradually becomes more complete as the player visits the shack. The player can pay four unique visits in total, with the fourth visit only available after the epilogue, in which the portrait shall be finished and revealing an image of the Strange Man. If the player looks into the mirror to the left of the painting, the Strange Man can briefly be seen standing behind them, and he will immediately vanish if the player turns around or tries to take a photo or screenshot of him in the mirror.

On subsequent visits to the shack, the painting will have disappeared, along with all others which changed according to the player's honor level.


  • It is believed that the cabin serves as an Easter egg to the Strange Man from Red Dead Redemption. It is possible that this property belongs to him.
  • After being visited for the fourth time, an option to examine the picture will appear to the player. If examined, the drawing of a painting shall appear on the game map over the cabin's location, which shall count as the point of interest "Painting in Cabin". It is the only point of interest that can only be discovered by John.
  • Inside a cage underneath the house is the rotting corpse of an alligator.
  • Along the walls of the cabin there are phrases painted on them, with one of them being "I Know You" which is a reference to a mission strand of the same name from the first Red Dead Redemption.
  • On a table next to the mirror, there is a map of Armadillo, with the phrase "I offered you happiness or two generations, you made your choice." This is likely referencing the note that can be looted off of Herbert Moon's corpse which talks about his daughter, Herberta who marries a Jewish man and Herbert would disown them due to his bigoted views. It seems that happiness would possibly mean death, and two generations seems to be the guarantee that Moon would have a daughter and live, though she married a man he disapproved of, making him unhappy.
    • Another message in the cabin reads "the moon shines on in the darkness", which possibly references Moon being unaffected ("shining on") by the cholera outbreak in Armadillo.
  • In and around Bayall Edge, most notably to the northwest and southeast, can be found Gator Eggs, the Lady of the Night Orchid, and the Spider's Orchid.
  • If a picture of the cabin is taken, instead of it saying Lemoyne, Bayou Nwa, Bayall Edge, the location will be listed as Lemoyne, Bayou Nwa, Serial Killer.
  • The index incorrectly notes Bayall Edge as "Baygall Edge."
  • If the player lets Jimmy Brooks live, the poem will read as:

There was a man called Jimmy Brooks,

Who was always running into crooks.

Till one chased him down and he had to talk his way round.

That Jimmy isn't as dumb as he looks.

  • If the player kills Jimmy Brooks, the poem will read as:

There was a man called Jimmy Brooks,

Who was always running into crooks.

But the man from the ferry found him far too contrary.

Now Jimmy's family don't see him very much.
