Parkour

The spiritual cousin to last week’s strip.

Bounding across rooftops is a staple of fantastic fiction. While less common in fantasy campaigns, it’s the standard mode of travel for most urban vigilantes. As such, you’d think rogues would be master leapers. The legacy of the thief-acrobat falls under the purview of the class. And yet, in most editions of the game, jumping is tied to Strength and thus something fighters and barbarians are more skilled at accomplishing. Pathfinder is one of the few exceptions, as jumping is Acrobatics in that variant of the ruleset.
