It came up in a game after we leveled that you always gain at least 1 hp when you level up, even if you have a negative con which would cause you to lose hp for that level. But I can't find it anywhere.

Its' not in combat, level advancement, building characters, conditions, or common terms.

Am I wrong about this or just not looking in the right place?


It's in the definitions of ability scores (Core Rulebook p.16).

You apply your character’s Constitution modifier to:

Each roll of a Hit Die (though a penalty can never drop a result below 1—that is, a character always gains at least 1 hit point each time he advances in level).
