What it does, along with shifting the peak, is exaggerate the strength of the bellcurve around the peak. The clustering around that point is much more pronounced.

Or to put it another way, on a standard 3d6 roll, 9-11 come up ~36% of the time, but on a 3d6-luck roll, 7-9 come up ~50% of the time.

I'll make a chart, it's kind of cool in a dorky sort of way.
