I've heard that there's a rule that creatures without Con scores (e.g. undead) cannot have the regeneration special ability. I can see why that would be the case (immunity to nonlethal damage makes Regeneration pretty powerful), but I'd like to see a rules citation for it if it exists.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm still looking for the actual cite, but I'm pretty sure you hit the nail on the head with the "immunity to non-lethal" part. Remember that they can regenerate hp, they just have the simpler fast healing instead of "true" regeneration. Be back with an answer if I can find a 3.5 source... \$\endgroup\$ – gatherer818 May 20 at 5:58

It is right there in Regeneration ability description:

[...] A creature must have a Constitution score to have the regeneration ability.
