I would. A Dummies Guide to Virtues could prompt me to turn them on once again.

In a helpfile on white auras Chris said that there is another effect, that some characters are luckier than others
I assume this means that at creation each character is given some kind of immutable luck modifier
I would be interested if your investigations shed light on that or on other obscure mechanics

If you look in object2.c there's a bonus for VIRTUE_CHANCE. Not sure if that was what he is talking about.

Luck, makes me wonder...

A few times I have chosen 'Lucky' personality and found the character to be anything but. Maybe RNG hate, maybe a hidden stat, maybe just confirmation bias.

The white aura, I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes with respect to drops, but I know the black aura makes a big difference
