Xurtok's Luck
Luck, good or bad, affects everyone in Britannia from time to time - from paladins of Trinsic to blacksmiths of Minoc, to the orcs of the Shadowclan. In our Spotlight story this week, Xurtok, a Gruntee of the Shadowclan Orcs, has a few brushes with Lady Luck and shares his tale with the UO community.
