Luck is a skill. Some people have it, others don’t. Well, you can make up for luck with hard work and effort, but it’s nice to have some luck. Alas, poor Knight is deficient in that area while Pirate has fortune to spare. That’s just how the dice roll.
Some people (like Pirate) are born lucky. Others make their own luck. Or they cheat. It’s pretty much the same thing.
More on the theme of luck! Pirate and Knight do practice their swordplay, but it can’t be that fair when 10 ton blocks fall out of the sky at random. Alas, poor Knight!
Pirate is lucky. Luck incarnate, luck manifested. Not just good luck, but bad luck as well. She’ll have extraordinarily back luck at times, but let’s put it like this: don’t gamble with her. Ever.
