I'm just wondering what it is about strumming on the twelfth fret that gives you notes and chords that more rounded sound.
Can anyone explain?

do you mean harmonics by any chance?

i'll explain that with lots of physics if it is
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

It's because of the scale length of the strings, and the fact that the 12th is the halfway point. That's where the most pronounced harmonics will be heard. It's ok to play up there once in a while, but a lot of music won't sound right strummed at that point. To me it's got a hollow, tubby sound. But it's good that you found it. It means that you are experimenting with different things on the guitar. Try picking in the opposite direction once, close to the bridge. It'll almost sound like a banjo. Really twangy. Dueling Banjo's anyone?

Edit:
Scratch that i just tried it with a bandana, works much better if you slide it under the strings right next to the bridge.
