So Jump Spell/Ring of Jumping/Boots of Jumping and Striding give you x3 to your base jumping distance.

Osalikene (Air) Elorii's First level Bloodline "A Leaf Upon the Wind" provides "Your jumping distance is doubled"

Am I to read this as I now have x6 Jumping distance or it overrides the 1st level bloodline power and I only have x3 Jumping Distance?

standard stacking rules apply; it becomes x4.

Base + (x3) + (x2)

I would have immediately agreed if 3rd Ed, but I haven't seen that stacking multiplier thing anywhere in 5e.

I admit, I was guilty of assuming standard stacking rules applied. I hadn’t realized that hadn’t appeared in this edition. I checked the DMG errata, and under “Combining Game Effects”, it clarifies that everything stacks as long as it’s not the same name, so unless PCI offers a different ruling:

Jump spell and Ring of Jumping do not stack (as the latter grants the ability to cast the same spell)
Boots of Striding and Springing are questionable here, given the “though you can't jump farther than your remaining Movement would allow“ limitation
My own two cents would be that the spell (alone or via ring) would stack with the Elorii ability for x6. Again, no one official, but at least WotC’s RAW seem to indicate that.
