So the size of the die affects how much HP you have, since each level you have a better chance of getting more HP. Classes that are supposed to be tough have a larger hit die, and so should have more HP. Classes that are supposed to be fragile have a smaller hit die, and so should have less HP. Furthermore, the number of hit dice you have is equal to your level, since you roll one die for each level you have. So “hit dice” is often used as a synonym for “level.” 0 Reply Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
