Is it amusing or sad that it took so many years for me to notice this peculiar, and quite possibly intentional thing about ? I only started figuring it out yesterday, rolling the new braille d20 around in my hands.
So, on this d20, numbers from 1 to 10 are represented with letters from a through j, and numbers from 11 to 20 with k through t.
K is an a but with the dot #3 on top. L is b but with dot #3. M is c but with dot #3. N-d, o-e, p-f, q-g, r-h, s-i, t-j.
The pattern is constant. The second 10 letters in the English braille alphabet are the same as the first 10, but with the dot #3 added on top. All of them!

@Mayana holy crap. that blew my mind. You're totally right. Why did I never notice?

@talon I'm not the only one!
I guess I can blame it on learning the Slovenian alphabet first. The order there is different (a š after the s, no q, etc.), so these rules don't really apply anymore. But in English, it's perfectly constant. Really awesome!
