    $\begingroup$ 18,20,8,10,13,15 = r,t,h,j,m,o I can't quite figure the reason why it goes from 20 to 8 though... $\endgroup$ – user3303504 Apr 11 '15 at 8:14

    $\begingroup$ The pattern repeats itself. r, t, h, j, m, r, t, h, j, m, ... $\endgroup$ – Ben Frankel Apr 11 '15 at 9:14

As the word "character" is used instead of "letter", the series could be:

r, t, h, j, m, comma
because this is almost "right and diagonal down and repeat" on a standard QWERTY keyboard.

If this is the intended method, a more consistent series would have been t, y, h, j, m, comma

You can get r,t,h,j,m,o,r,t,h,j,m,o by doing the following formula and converting the number to the correct position in the alphabet:

((((Round(n/2)+1)%3)*5)+8)+(2*((n+1)%2))
