Sometimes, a person just has to give a desperate situation her all. Usually, it’s not enough to make a difference, but sometimes — just sometimes — she manages to pull off the one-in-a-million stunt that saves the day. Of course, those with the power to manipulate the odds are often a little less hesitant about jumping into such “hopeless situations.”

Mechanics: After successfully casting this spell, the mage treats the next chance roll she is called upon to make during the spell’s Duration as having a die pool of 1. This means that the willworker can succeed on a roll of eight through 10 (and benefit from such advantages as 8- or 9-again) and cannot dramatically fail the roll in question. Upon so modifying such a chance roll, the spell automatically expires, and the mage may not choose whether or not to apply the spell’s effects to a given chance roll.
