Now this gem might just be useful...
There is a six foot wide gap ahead, can the character make the jump?
A broad jump requires 20' head start.
Heavy gear -1 foot
Very heavy gear -2 feet
Encumbered -4 feet
Halfling -1 foot
Dwarves and Gnomes -2 feet
Halflings are obviously spritely aren't they compared to dwarves and gnomes.
