PCB: Lucky Lucky Skillmaster?

The Lucky personality type, besides hosing your stats, gives you the White Aura at character creation. That appears to help you find out of depth items. Does it also help with how good/excellent/special your loot is?

Most importantly, is it the same thing as the Lucky skill for the Skillmaster class or do they use different and compatible code blocks that effectively double your loot boosting abilities?

Deeper item depth means more likely to be good/excellent.
It is the same effect that Skillmaster/Leprechauns get.

Note that the personality also importantly comes with a huge boost to skills and a malus to life rating.

Lucky does not come with a life rating malus, unless they changed that in 7.0.2.
If they did, that's awful. What was Chris thinking.
Anyway, from the code:
>if (_get_skill_pts(_TYPE_ABILITY, _LUCK))
>p_ptr->good_luck = TRUE;
just like a rune knight with a rune of luck in its inventory.
Both item, ability and mutation grant the good_luck value, which do not, in fact, stack or are in any way different from oneanother.

Unless the help files are in error, Lucky comes with a 98% Life Rating in both Pseudoelliposchengband (a 6.1 variant) and Poschengband 7.0.2.
