Moldvay D&D Basic Rules

As a distraction from recent events, I've elected to participate in this minor challenge to create new characters—one for each day of January—released a few days at a time. For the past six days, I did these characters for Dungeons & Dragons, Basic Edition (Moldvay, 1980).

I rolled 4d6 for stats (discarding the lowest die), but 3d6 (times ten) for determining gold pieces.
