I like the Revised Ranger UA, especially the beast conclave, but don't understand how the animal's hit points are determined.
For example, a wolf is listed as having 11 hit points (2D8+2). So at 3rd level, would a wolf companion have 11 hit points, or would it work like a 1st level PC and have 18 hit points (max number on initial hit dice). I'm also confused because a wolf has +1 constitution, I don't get from where the +2 comes.
As you level up, do you add 2D8 or 1D8 hit points to the companion's HP total?
Assuming you didn't increase the wolf companion's constitution at level 4, what would the hit point total be? 11 (original HP) + 1D8 + 1 (con modifier) or something else?
