The auspician was a prestige class of for those who sought powers of luck.[1]


The auspician was often a worshiper of a deity of luck. They underwent a ritual where they consumed a poison called Tyche's blood, which was believed to be derived from blood taken from the deceased goddess's corpse.[1]

Regardless of whether the person who desired to become an auspician survived the effects of the poison (some auspicians were actually resurrected after the poison killed them), the person gained the ability to command the effects of luck in all of its forms.[1]


Tyche's Curse
The auspician could curse an enemy, making that person uncoordinated and in a daze.[1]
Fickle Finger of Fate
The auspician could alter the luck of another person, though not whether the new luck was good or ill.[1]
Luck Infusion
The auspician could grant himself good luck in a specified area of their life while using this ability. As they became more skilled in manipulating the luck around them, they could make this effect permanent.[1]
Luck of the Gods
An auspician who grew powerful enough gained the ability to grant himself good luck in even the most dire of circumstances.[1]
