There is something wrong even though I am glad it was only for 3 turns. It did spawn a peasant theft that was not cast. The remarks (only remarks no theft) lasted for 3 turns.

If its random, can we see what random number of turns it is?

Also, change in description that its random number of turns and that minimum is 1 turn per 1 spell power. So that minimum is 1 turn and maximum 15 turns.

Is this possible?

I found a bug and fixed it. this will generally make offensive spells last longer, so rebalancing might be needed. but length of a spell is
(randomly between 0 and length) + (length / 2) * power
so basicly 0.5-1.5 * length * power
this is now the same for offensive and self spells. I also added some more output for now. If people like it we can adjust slightly and keep it.
