    Do you believe that there are lucky people/days/things? That there is such a thing as luck? That luck comes and goes, one can have luck, and then lose it all? That others can steal your luck?

    Luck is the name given to a situation in which, out of several possible outcomes, the one which is beneficial to you ends up happening by chance, even though it was unlikely. Luck isn't an attribute that you either have or don't have from beforehand, which actually causes events to go in your favour. If that were the case, it wouldn't be luck at all, but an influenced outcome.

    You're right, but I'm impressed that you managed to deduce that from one TSR post.

    I'd argue you can have Luck as an attribute. That's because Luck is about perception. Have you ever noticed 'Lucky' people tend to just be the ones who focus on the good things that happen? The things that go their way? To be Lucky is simply to believe you are lucky.
