Priestesses of Lada, Part II

Magical Side-Effects
There's a whole lot of Lada's love, so much so that any of the following magical side-effect results can be ignored if the priestess is holding hands with her Lado, her love, at the time of casting. Otherwise, roll 1d12.

1. Gifts of Rod: Lada requests an offering of grain or even some sort of wedding gift so as to power the spell. If not, then it won't occur until it's given. 

2. Larila: What is summer without the sun? The spell must be cast within the sun's light (no matter the season), or else its effects will only occur when the target is so bathed.

3. Kupala: Water cleanses, heals, sustains. The magic needs it too, or else it will only happen at 1/2 its normal effect if at least a handful isn't present.

4. Kostroma: Upon the grainy meadows we dance and sing. The spell requires being in an open field, visiting one earlier that day, or doing so by the next dawn. If not, then it functions at just 50% power.

5. Lada Lado: Together, life roams free. All courtship and lovemaking rolls within 240' of the place of casting gain a +2 bonus for the next 1d6 hours.

6-8. No Side-Effect: The magic works normally for now. 

9. Rusalka's Way: The spell is cast at double its effect, range, or duration, but only if the priestess has bathed in natural waters and/or clear sunlight that day, or has otherwise communed with nature spirits. If not, then it fails.

10-11. Love in Hand: The magic's effect, range, or duration can be increased two-fold if the priestess's Lado is currently at her side (at least). If not, then it just functions normally. 

12. Blessing of the Summer Queen: The spell occurs for double its normal effect, range, or duration, and it is not expended for the day. The priestess also gains the ability to sense the direction to the nearest member of a loving couple (including her Lado- her own) for the next 1d6 turns

DCC RPG Conversion notes
Spell not being expended for the day= spell gains a +2 bonus to its spell check
