My sorcerer has just reached level 11 and I am to select my last level 2 spell.
I started out with a mere 9 in my constitution ability score and despite getting a toad familiar and finally getting my ability modifier up to 11 (so I no longer have to substract HP when I level) I still only have 23 hit points.
So I thought I might get Bear's Endurance, and cast it twice a day to boost my HP. In the 3.0 version it's 1 hour per level 1D4 + 1 constitution bonus. But the Player's Handbook leaves me in doubt:
The spell grants an enhancement bonus to Constitution, adding the usual benefits to hit points and Fortitude saving throws.
What is this? Do I gain HP retroactively as if I had had a higher constitution when I leveled? Because then I agree with the people who think this can be overpowered!
With my 11 constitution the spell can give either +1, +2 or +3 in my modifier... Does that mean I get 10, 20 or 30 extra HP for 11 hours?
