Don't you hate it when your luck runs out at a crucial moment? At least Andy knows what's in store next.

Life Points
Aelita: 15 HP
Yumi: 30 HP


Taylor: A psychic vision flashes across your eyes. You see someone falling. Into the digital sea.
Andy: Who? Where? How?
Taylor: You can only concentrate enough to get one of those.
Andy: . . . Where.
Taylor: Well, uh, with that roll you determine it happens in the forest sector, down a pit that leads straight to the digital sea. If you came across it, you would recognize it.
Taylor: When you come back to digital reality, you see the last kankrelat in front of you.
Andy: Uh-oh.
Taylor: Reflex Save. With a -2 penalty.
Andy: 6. No fair.
[Odd is shot and loses his remaining 10 life points. He devirtualizes.]
Rachel: That's just when I show up, isn't it?
Taylor: Uh, yep. You get a surprise round.
Rachel: Sheesh. Still pissed at Andy, huh?
Taylor: You know, I can revoke that surprise round, right?
[Yumi throws her fan at the kankrelat, killing it.]
Andy: . . . Are you still mad?
Taylor: Huh? Oh. . . No, not really.
Taylor: I honestly expected you to dodge that since you've been rolling ridiculously well.
Andy: Guess Lady Fortune turned her wheel on me. Oh well.
Eric: Don't you mean Lady Luck?
Andy: Same person.

In one game I'm in we had a boss fight 2 sessions ago, we failed every freaking roll it was awful. The boss got called away so we were safe but it still just went terribly. Highlight of it (for me at least) was my character literaly getting punched into the ceiling and then dropping it on the boss. Still wasn't enough to get the boss to half HP but it was at least awesome.

Lady Luck/Fortune is flighty and unreliable. She’s impressive in damn near every other way. If she were reliable and not so flighty...well she’d stop being Lady Luck and be Mary Poppins instead.

Mary Poppins, yes!
