The Lucky Halfling’s Foot

So if you don’t play Dungeon Crawl Classics, the thing about halflings is that they are little luck batteries with ability to help out the other party members. Then the idea of a lucky rabbits foot crossed my mind. And oh there we go. I thought about this and thought about having a little encounter against some orcs just to keep the players on their toes. Orc’s would just the types to mummify some poor halfling’s foot and wear it. And it was kind fortunate because the players weren’t on their toes.
The Lucky Halfling’s Foot is just that. The mummified foot of a halfling. I know. Ewww! That’s the idea. But is does grant an extra point of Fleeting Luck once per session. So you’re not playing DCC? That’s cool. For a quick and dirty conversion, grants a +1 bonus to any one roll once per session. (Yes, I know Fleeting Luck does do more but it’s a quick, easy and pretty clone neutral conversion.) Of course, there may some awkward social moments if a character is wearing this thing.
Now about those players not being on their toes.
“Do we think the road to the big city is safe?”
“Uh, maybe.”
“We go to the big city!”
“You’re not going to buy any better weapons or armor in the village?”
“Nope.”
“Okay.”
So yeah. A plain mob of orcs try to ambush them. Being DCC the fight was less than a round. That’s what happens when a magic-user type rolls really well. Needless to say all the orcs got wiped out. But still being DCC that extra damage also meant larger area of effect. So also everybody (except the aforementioned arcane caster who only had a few HP left) drops. Which was the only way they avoided TPKing themselves. Like I mentioned before the one player’s character is a Witch from Tales of the Fallen Empire. So she’s the party’s arcane artillery and their healer.
Keep those dice a rolling!
