Duration 1 round/level


You gain divine aid for a single intended action, chosen after casting and attempted before the spell expires.

Wild errantry allows two rolls to be made, both with a +4 luck bonus, to any required skill checks see if a crazy, daring, or unlikely action can be successfully attempted.

Typical actions include leaping across a chasm and through a small opening, jumping from the back of one racing mount to another, or falling some distance and successfully catching hold of (and managing to cling to) a railing, windowsill, swinging rope, or other handhold.

This magic smiles upon far-fetched and even foolhardy actions. If used to aid a relatively straightforward act (swinging across a river on a vine, for example, as opposed to leaping to catch that vine to make the same swinging journey), its benefit decreases to a +3 luck bonus. Wild errantry also benefits actions of chance, such as rolling a particular result with dice (in game), finding something hidden (for example, under shells), or drawing a particular card. If a game of chance has been fixed to be impossible (a selection of cards has been altered, dice are �crooked,� or there’s no hidden marker under any shell), this magic tells its caster that.
