Over 500hp through heavy armor, several +s and a shieldwall per hit. I know that it was a backstab, during combat, but seriously that damage is nuts for a char in the 20s.

Crack kills, re-balance please.

That's really not remotely enough information to do anything about it, if there actually is a problem. It won't have much to do with the race - it's not like they get much boost on stab from anything on the race template, their strength bonus doesn't multiply. Kinda hard to look into without knowing the specifics of the character in question, the weapon in use, etc. I'd suggest directing a query via game-based channels (ie. avmail/pkmail) if it's a problem so it can be looked at there.

Got you, it is just that I went from 349hp to -203 in one round of combat against Brakitus. I mean understand the hammer/mino str/thief stab, but against a max con dwarf, shieldwalled, with all the damage reducing feats. You would think I'd last at least 2 rounds. I mean totally fine with losing, but 1 round feels super cheap and like my feat/eqs are useless.

Still really hard to give legitimate feedback without seeing a log or knowing the circumstances. Hell, there's weapons out there on a ridiculously rare chance of beheading someone outright Razz DnD games based around dice rolls mean lucky, and unlucky, rounds of combat are a reality.

So again, if you want it followed up, I'd suggest an in-game means & providing any relevant info you have. I really can't make any sort of reasonable judgement based on this info, as it can and does happen depending on circumstances.
