Hit points cannot normally exceed the character's maximum hit points (the main exception being temporary hit points).
Hit points per level[edit | edit source]
Consitution[edit | edit source]
Any increase in a character's constitution bonus also retroactively increases the maximum hit points. If this is not a permanent effect, the additional hit points will also disappear when the bonus is lost. Similarly, a drop in constitution bonus will cause a loss in hit points (temporarily or otherwise).
