Priestesses of Mokosh, Part II

Magical Side-Effects
Deep, earthen moisture gives life to all and to Mokosh's magic. Roll 1d12.

1. Gifts of Rod: Mokosh requests an offering of moist sustenance or some household good. It's needed so the magic can come to pass- it will only do so once it's given. 

2. Home Mother: Where else should one cast? Only in a home, while weaving, or with children around will the magic work.

3. Jarilo: Life-moisture flows up in the spring... The spell must reflect life, fertility, growth, or the like. Otherwise, it will only function at 1/2 its normal power.

4. Morana: ... and return to the earth in winter. Now the magic must have something to do with coldness, death, or divination. If not, it will only be at 50%.

5. The Moist Deep: From Mokosh, all comes and returns. Any rolls involving life, death, fertility, or decline that are made within 240' of the place of casting gain a +3 bonus for the next 1d6 hours.

6-8. Standard Casting: The spell works normally for now.

9. Matronly Hills: If something round like mothers' breasts is in view, then the magic's effect, range, or duration can be increased two-fold. If not, then it won't work this time at all! 

10-11. Woven Ways: The priestess can take 1d3 extra rounds to weave the spell into effect- or simply engage in some other household or motherly duty- and thereby cast it for double its normal effect, range, or duration. If not, then the spell just functions normally.

12. Blessing of the Moist Mother: The magic works for twice its usual effect, range, or duration, and it is not expended for the day. In addition, the priestess can sense the direction to the nearest home, fertile adult, or even offspring of someone for the next 1d6 turns.

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