Do Temporary Hit Points From 5e Heroism Accumulate?

No, the temporary hit points from 5e heroism do not accumulate. However, when granted new temporary hit points, you will be able to choose and take the new stack or the old one.

Note that, healing can’t restore temporary hit points, and they cannot also be added together. In this case, If you have temporary hit points and have received more of them, you can decide whether to keep the hit points you have already or to try and gain the new ones.

Let us take a practical example, if a particular d&d 5e heroism spell grants you 12 temporary hit points when you already have, let say 10 temporary hit points, you can have 12 or 10, not 22. — PHB, p.198. So from the example above, the hero will keep refilling its temporary HP to +3.

What are the Real Way Heroism 5e Spell Grants Temporary Hit Points?

Let using a simple illustration to explain the point, now, for example. If a character has 20 hit points. Now let take this illustration on bullet points. Check out the Enlarge Reduce 5e: Enlarge/reduce 5e d&d Uses

  • Let say on the characters  first turn, it gains +3 temporary hit points from the bard (23 hit points)
  • And before the next turn, it gets hit for 1 point of damage (22 hit points)
  • And again, let say on its next turn, how many temporary hit points does it get? +3 (the modifier)? +1 (to take it back to +3 temp HP)? 0 (because it hasn’t used up all of its temporary hit points from the last turn)?

Assuming the group has a consensus that the stacking rule “IF you have temporary hit points and get more of them, then you decide whether to keep the ones you have or gain the new ones. Here it means that the character can never have above +3 temporary hit points.

In this case, the group’s consensus is right — the spell ensures that the character has +3 temporary hit points for the period, and so the character gets back +1 temporary hit point. Also, read the Command 5e:DnD 5e Spells List, Uses, Application & Rules
