Somewhat along the same lines, what would you say that your ability scores are? By the way, there is a rumor that Bill Gates is trying to get a law passed which would require all motor vehicle operators to have their D&D type ability scores listed on their driver's licenses.

Anyway, I would say that mine are as follows:

Str: 15
Int: 17
Wis: 11
Dex: 13
Con: 10
Cha: 9

I think that you can find your actual strength as a function of your military press. Mine max military press is about 170, so I'm guessing my strength is about 15 but I couldn't find that chart yet so I'm not certain. I do remember that an 18/00 strength requires a military press heavier than that achieved by any human in known history.

As for intelligence, I would have to say 17 because I was an electronics technician and nuclear reactor operator/technician in the Navy, sort of the mundane world's equivalent of a magic user.

Wisdom, I would like to think is can be a function of age and I hope I'm getting wiser as I get older, but I will play a bit into the common stereotype of the genius as somewhat lacking in common sense, however, I don't think that I would go too far in assuming too much in that regard.

Dexterity is pretty difficult to judge. If video game and shooting prowess (with real guns) were the primary indicators, mine would probably be an 18. However, my kung fu is not the best, so that brings it down a notch or two.

My Constitution is certainly adversely affected by my asthma, or perhaps allergy to cigarette smoke, but Iím otherwise pretty healthy and in shape so I would have to put myself a bit above average.

Charisma is kind of difficult to self judge, at least for me. I guess Iím probably average.

I just reread my message and it would seem that someone with a 17 Intelligence wouldnít make the obvious grammatical mistakes I did, but there is no necessary contradiction here. People can be smart and lazy at the same time.

Those scores are based on my average blood alchohol level. A big bloke slurring things at you doesn't provoke the kindest of thoughts, or so I'm told.

Heh, my scores are going to have to be on a sliding scale. Since I am 46, I have watched the best in most of my scores go by many, many moons ago. Sentimentality is probably why I have kept Keldorn in my party. He says something like "I am old, but if you will have me, I will stand by your side and guard your soul".
Str: 18 now 13
Dex: 16 now 13
Con: 18 now 12
Int: 4 now 2. I endeavor to improve my limited intellect, but time robs me nonetheless.
Wis: 2 possibly as high as 3 now. This is one area that I know I have shown some progress.
Cha: No such animal. Extremely high negative self image, I probably can't judge this fairly.
