cool, I'll update my character sheet. I modified a character I created before, but never actually played it in the PBP it was created for and in the game where I actually did use him (he had several 18s honestly rolled with a 4d6) he died the first night going through a door and hit by 5 bandit crossbow at one time (4 rolled 20s - double damage). The lit oil flask (wicked) I was trying to throw crashed down beside me and burst into flames like a molotov cocktail. It was around 50 hp damage to a 1st level character. I was just a black smudge on the ground with a lump of charred bone in the middle of it.

BTW, here is the best method I have seen of the dm tracking/reporting XP:

JoeCarr uses some sort of table so it looks better on his board.

Page 11 states "Dwarves, due to their stocky powerful builds are able to use medium weapons one handed and some large weapons in two hands, but large weapons more that 4 feet in length are prohibited." You can use a maul (a large weapon) in both hands. Your choice to either keep it or sell/trade it. We have a topic for selling and trading that you can post in.

looking at the weapons list on page 11 and size rules, it certainly looks like you can use a maul with two hands (no shield).

I wanted to say that I actually used the Quick Character Generation supplement to build my backstory. and that Blazeguard hit the jackpot with his stat line :).

That is the line of lines. I must have gotten the lamest magic item and stat selection boohoohoo wawawa.

BTW, your template doesn't have a line for Race. I added it to mine.

Here is what I rolled for backstory numbers in parentheses are my rolls. ...

Birth order: (9) seventh son
Parent Occupation: (20) Noble & (1)Landless Knight
Significant Events in Childhood and Adolescence: (20) Lived on streets/No Guardian; (11) Father/mother/both outlawed for (8) Trespassing; (13) Jealous Siblings/Rivalry ; (12) Unloved/spurned by parents.
Significant Events in Young Adulthood: (8) Romantic affair (25% chance of child)/ (65) no child

while writing this post I realized in my haste that I read the wrong table on one of my rolls. Instead of "lived on streets no guardian" in childhood and adolescents i should have had "committed a crime of political dissonance" . I like what I thought I rolled better and am keeping it.
