One of the next failed rolls made by one of the targets of the spell becomes a success. The gods of luck, rather than the caster, choose which type of roll is transformed.

When determining which type of roll is affected, the GM should roll a d10 and consult the following table.

Table 2-8: Rolls Affected
d10 Roll transformed
1�2 Saving throw
3�5 Skill check
6�10 Attack roll

The GM also should roll 1d4 to determine which roll is improved among those that immediately follow the casting of the spell. A roll of 1 means the very next failed roll of the indicated type is improved, while a roll of 4 means that three rolls fail before one is changed. The subjects cannot be under the effect of more than one lucky break spell at a time.

Mythic: The caster can choose the type of roll�saving throw, skill check, or attack roll�that becomes a success.

The affected ally then may choose which specific roll of that type becomes a success long as it is made within a number of rounds equal to the caster’s mythic tier after the spell is cast.
