DnD 5e - Constitution

Constitution describes a character's physical fortitude; their ability to endure pain, to take damage without falling unconscious, to resist the effects of poison, disease, and other physical maladies, to hold your breath, to travel long distances without rest, and to go without sleep for extended periods.

All characters gain additional hit points from Constitution, so most characters have at least moderately high Constitution, but it's most important for characters who fight in hand-to-hand combat because those characters tend to draw more attacks and suffer more damage as a result.


There are no skills tied to Constitution.
