Pole Vaulting [General]
You can use a pole or pole weapon to enhance your jumps.
When you jump while holding a pole or pole weapon you can add a +10 bonus to your Jump check. A flexible pole can be used to enhance height, and a stiff pole can enhance horizontal distance. The pole must be approximately as long as you are tall but could be longer.
Modern vaulting poles are quite different from a simple bamboo pole or oak quarterstaff. They bend converting forward motion into upward motion. The approximate maximum height a human pole-vaulter can achieve is about 20’ (this would translate into a huge Jump skill bonus). A stiff pole is only useful for getting your feet higher off the ground or extending a horizontal jump.
