A character in my group ran into a funny situation where his character fell unconscious but the other characters eliminated monsters, which caused them to level up. When a character levels up, they gain the new hit points added to their max.

My question is would the unconscious character gain these new hit points and gain consciousness?

    \$\begingroup\$ @OneEye Even if you disagree with the accepted answer on the other question, that doesn't make the question not a duplicate. \$\endgroup\$ – John Montgomery Dec 8 '20 at 0:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes it does because that would make this a valid question. This technically isn't a duplicate question. It's just invalid if the other question means that characters don't gain HP at all on level up. If they do, however, then this question seems appropriate. \$\endgroup\$ – One Eye Dec 9 '20 at 17:16
