In the latest version of the Basic Role-Playing System:

Falling
1D6 damage for every 3 metres fallen. If the character was thrown, damage may
be doubled.
A successful Jump roll can specify on which location he lands.
[no mention of armour]

Choking/Drowning/Asphyxiation
Roll of CON×10, then CON×9, etc to hold one's breath.
after 10 rounds, roll 1D100 under CON%
Whenever the roll fails: damage to the total hit points [not chest] of 1D4 to
1D8 per round depending on the substance inhaled.

Poisoning
RR of CON vs POT. Failed roll causes damage equal to POT to total hit points
[not CON]. Successful roll halves damage.
