Song of Luck improves the overall luck of a bard and their group by giving an increased chance of success at performing certain actions, such as creature maneuvers, Combat Maneuvers, and Disarming Traps. The spell does not always increase the luck of the bard and their party; however, increased training in the Bard Base circle increases the chances that this spell will activate.

Instead of outright raising the chance for an event to occur (or not occur), the spell will grant a second roll. The higher of the two rolls will be the one factored into the event.

Activation can vary from system to system, but generally (such as with the standard maneuver roll), bards have a base 50% chance + 1% per 3 spellsongs while non-Bards have a flat 33% chance for a reroll. Provided by GM Estild
