Lucksuckers feed on good fortune. Part physical entity, part mental phenomenon, the sucker's appearance is based on the laws of probability, and may change without warning. While the entity in its most pure form is but a human-like ghost, its most common appearance are in the shapes of creatures of objects capable of robbing one of luck: these include stepladders, black cats, spinning umbrellas, and giant number 13s (which will be dicussed in greater detail below). Good luck charms (such as a rabbit's foot, four-leaf clover, horseshoe) provide only a temporary shield against attack (enduring, on average, three luck-draining attacks before being consumed), as well as being the only effective weapons known to work against these creatures. Hurling one at a lucksucker may terribly wound it even unto death, but at the charms dispense. Without several such charms, the best strategy is to run!

In the stepladder form, the lucksucker will attempt to defeat its opponent by either stepping or somersaulting him as it twirls on one leg, pirouetting to avoid reprisal. As a black cat, the creature will attempt to parch an adventurer of luck by marching back and forth before him, or placing itself directly in his path. In the guise of a spinning umbrella, the lucksucker will open as wide as possible and close repeatedly indoors. The giant number 13 form steals luck by pointing at itself then the adventurer, staring right in his face, or waving grimly in order to snatch his attention for as long as possible.

Lucksuckers had only been discovered in caverns beneath the Mithicus Mountains until the Great Monster Uprising of the Second Age of Magic, when they were reported in the following regions: The Casino in Port Foozle (despite the nature of this building, they only dwelt here temporarily due to the gremlin invasion; why they otherwise avoid this territory is unknown), FenshireFlathead FjordThe Gray Mountains Asylum, Mirror LakeMines of Mendon, PheeborForest of YouthMiznia Marshlands, Miznia Jungle, The Lost Castle of Y'Syska, Discipline Beach, Kovalli Desert, Mithicus MountainsThe Glass Maze, BozbarlandThe Old Lingolf House, Largoneth CastleThe Southern Wastes, and the G.U.E. Tech Training Grounds in the Ethereal Plane of Atrii.
