Jump is the skill used to "leap over pits, vault low fences, or reach a tree's lowest branches". Improve it enough and you can leap over chasms, vault high fences and jump onto a tree's branches.

Using JumpEdit

When performing a long jump, you can cover a horizontal distance equal to your skill check (if you have a 20-foot run-up) or half your skill check (no run-up); at the highest point of the jump (the midpoint), you rise to a height of one quarter the horizontal distance covered. Failure by less than 5 means you miss but can grab the far side (Reflex DC 15).

When performing a high jump, you rise to a height equal to one quarter of your skill check (if you have a 20-foot run-up) or one eighth of your skill check (no run-up). You can hop up to waist height with a DC 10 Jump check.

If you perform an untrained Jump check, you fall prone unless you beat the DC by 5 or more. (This arguably only makes sense for long jumps.)
