Heya runequesters,

RuneQuest6 has a really nice combined Athletics skill, covering climbing,
jumps, running, and throwing. There are various results for critical,
success, failed, and fumble - mainly derived from characteristics.

The question I have is what happens on a failed Jump. A failed Climb
simply says that the Climb action is aborted, which is fine. It is the
same with Jump? Does the Jump fail to happen? A fumble with Jump means
that the Jump occurs but with an awkward landing causing damage.
