Let's be clear about Lucky Roll

Post by BaophraT »

A doubt keeps nagging me : if the Lucky Roll remains the same from a character's creation to its death, this modifier only applies to the character's Birth Augur. On the other hand, Luck's characteristic can drop over the course of an adventure (for a variety of reasons), and the modifier needs to be recalculated as it can alter various tests (critical hits, listening, etc). Is this right ?

Right.

Luck changes and the Mod changes with it.

Birth Augur remains fixed.

hi
The Lucky Roll, which is set at character creation, applies consistently to the character's Birth Augur. However, the Luck attribute itself can fluctuate during the adventure due to various events or effects. As a result, you would need to recalculate the modifier when Luck changes since it can impact critical tests like critical hits, listening, and other checks. This dynamic aspect adds a layer of strategy and realism to the game.
