Raising Constitution Scores
You can raise your Constitution score from different sources, among them:
- During character creation, you can add up to 10 points to your basic Constitution score, which means:
- A Dwarf, Warforged, Bladeforged character can start with a Constitution of up to 20
- A Dragonborn, Deep Gnome, Gnome, Halfling, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Purple Dragon Knight, Shadar-Kai, or Human can start with a Constitution of up to 18
- A Drow, Morninglord or an Elf character can have a Constitution of up to 16.
- At the 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th, 24th, and 28th, you are allowed to raise a single ability by 1 point. If invested in Constitution and the ability score moves to the even number, this will result in an increase in character HP.
- The Stat point raises are often referred to as "level-ups". These increases count towards Feat Pre-requisites.
Inherent bonuses stack with all other bonuses and also count towards Feat Pre-requisites.
- A Manual of Bodily Health will raise the Constitution score by the appropriate value. For more information, refer to Tomes. These bonuses will show on your character sheet in the Feat section.
Unless noted otherwise, Feat Bonuses stack with each other and other sources of bonuses.
