Constitution Damage at level 1


Rules Questions


So let's say a level 1 druid with a constitution score of 10 and has 8 hp suffers 2 points of constitution damage. What is the hp of the druid?

Ignore if it is good or bad to do this to a level 1 character, just need the result based on RAW.

Thanks in advance.

The druid would lose 1hp per HD, so in this case 1 hit point. Note however the current AND maximum decrease by this amount.

In addition the druid would have lower fort saves and constitution checks. This would not influence any feats or things that have a constitution pre-req.

Nevermind, found the rule finally.

Not really, but yes. Its not hit point damage, its a hit point adjustment, same as if the con score was raised by 2 points the druids (or any class for that matter) hit points would go up by 1 per hit die. So using 10 as the con score as a base: for every 2 points that the con score goes up via spell, gaining levels, etc, the characters hit points raise by 1 per hit die and for every 2 points the con score drops by spell, poison, disease, etc, the characters hit points drop by 1 per hit die.
