I consulted some mathematicians and found the following useful statistics related to dice rolls in Donjon:

When creating a character's attributes and rolling 3d6 and keeping only the median die, the odds are:

6
7.4%
****
5
18.5%
*********
424.1%************
324.1%************
2
18.5%
*********
1
7.4%
****

Now if you roll a pool of d20 and only look at the highest die, what is the average result you will get?

1d2010.5
2d2013.8
3d2015.5
4d2016.5
5d2017.1
6d2017.6
7d2018.0
8d2018.2
9d2018.5
10d2018.6
11d2018.8
12d2018.9
13d2019.0
14d2019.1
15d2019.2
16d2019.3

Peace,
