I apologize everyone. I misquoted. It's actually 500 gold. As for property buying I need to know a few things.

When you say this, you mean that the price of an uncommon magic item is 500 gold, not that we only get 500 gold to start, right?

Money: 4500 GP (500 spent to purchase Gauntlets of Ogre Power)

Background
A warrior created by Thayan wizards to be the ultimate weapon against their Rashemi enemies, Orlan was raised from birth to be a powerful combatant, versed in ways of fighting and defeating both ordinary soldiers and mages with brutal efficiency and infused with the spirit of a powerful Rashemi berserker by arcane magic to give him the powerful of those legendary warriors. He killed countless numbers of his corrupt nations enemies and would have continued doing so, but one day he encountered a witch on the battlefield who he couldn't raise his blade against, instead turning on his red wizard handler and slaying him, fleeing with the rashemi witch. Never truly an evil person, Orlan was only too happy to be free of his masters and the witch revealed that she had come looking for him. The berserker whose spirit had been fused to Orlans was her lover, and she had guessed (Correctly) that the magekiller would be unable to harm her. It did not take long before Orlan and the witch fell in love, and it would have remained that way if not for an accident where Orlan suddenly lost control of his berserker rage and killed his lover, becoming outcast by the Rashemi and hunted by his former homeland.

One thing I wanted to ask: I noticed that we also get the starting equipment, but I've kinda already set up stuff.  Any objection to taking the average of the starting wealth as listed on page 143 in PH?

Muse. My ruling for buying more spells is, no. You cannot spend gold to get extra spell slots. However you could purchase them at 500 gold a spell (this represents components, time, and paying other wizards) to add a spell to an existing level you can cast at. But this does not increase your spells per day.

Yes 500 gold per uncommon item.

Sadly A Painter this is full up. But I can add you to the waiting list.

I believe Muse was asking about adding spells to the spellbook, not the slots.

Barbarian completed and updated, and he is a real combat monster who can even do useful stuff when the swords aren't swinging. Decent AC and 48 HP combined with the bear totem half damage and adamantine armor negating crits means he's nigh-indestructible and with sentinel he punishes enemies foolish enough to attack anyone else once he gets them in Melee. Great Weapon Master makes him able to deal out massive damage when he needs to, and he can go Reckless to mitigate the -5 attack penalty at the cost of making himself an easy target. That's okay; he wants all the enemies attacking him anyway.

His only real weak spot is his saves. If int, wish and cha saves start getting rolled he's in trouble. But that's what you guys are for. He would do well in a party with lots of people who can handle the brainwork and make those mental saves, and having someone to heal and buff him would be aces. Any caster doing so will not regret it. Nothing is going to escape him to attack them, and if it does his 40 ft. Speed and Boots of Striding and Springing ensure he will chase them down quickly.

stay behind the rampaging berserker with the big sword, and you live. Period.

Personality-wise Orlan is overprotective in the extreme. He is a former soldier accustomed to leading others into battle, and when his friends get hurt he takes it very hard. Out of combat he's probably the one making sure everyones gear is maintained and generally being a big 'ol papa bear.

Oh, yes!  Very much what Andy said.  :) 

And that's exactly what i was hoping for with new spells for my spellbook.  :)

I think your biggest penalty is that you're wearing armor. So you don't  get to have your constitution bonus to it.

Eh, that's not a big deal. Getting hit is how Barbarians do their jobs. They soak up hits and laugh at the puny little weaklings dealing them out. Once Orlan gets in melee with you, you may as well just dig your own grave and lie down in it.

The brewer bit: 

Every dwarf picks up either Stonemasonry, smithing or brewing. 

Now that I've got your answers in PM, we can do a second draft that incorporates them.
