On page 145 of the ARG and rules for Jumping Down under Athletics which allow you to ignore 10' of falling damage. On Page 139 of ARG are rules for using an Acrobatics Action Skill Roll to Reduce Falling Damage and using these rules you can reduce the falling damage by the result of the Action Skill Roll.
So, is Jumping Down the same as Falling? If you Jump Down can you roll both skills? The Acrobatics check seems the better now since you can avoid more than just 10' of damage.
Do the results stack?
What about reducing damage using the Talent Borne Upon the Wind Tier I? Can an Acrobatics or Athletics rolls be added to the 30' of no damage? A good acrobatics check might be greater than 30'.
Then Cat's Grace, the Spell - this one reduces the damage as if you fell 10' less. I would expect that this stacks with the Jump Down Action Skill Roll and the Acrobatics Action Skill Roll.
And the spell Cat Fall - you suffer no damage from falls of 30' or less, much like Borne Upon the Wind.
Falling is something that happens a bit in adventuring. I wondered what people think? What stacks? Which check should be used?
