Once upon a time, 18 was the best number you could roll on 3D6 when creating a Dungeons and Dragons or Tunnels and Trolls character. Triple sixes, the Venus throw in ancient Roman dice gambling–it’s the epitome of a perfect die roll. Now T & T uses the TARO rule–six, six, six or 18 is a really good roll and the start of an incredible Specialist character. So, 18 is for Specialist in T & T 7.5.
18 is for really tall, or really heavy under 5th edition rules–7 feet 2 inches or 350 pounds.
level 18 requires 4 million adventure points under 5th edition rules.
18 is the STR necessary to use the infamous Beak of a Crow weapon–the warhammer especially made for cracking open armored helmets.
18 is a great age to be–still a teenager, graduating high school, entering college. I wish I was 18.
If you have any notable 18s to add, please put them in the comments below. Today is May 23, and the blogging challenge is fading now. Still, I will flog this dying blog as long as I can.
