Watch That First Step
Characters suffer one point of bashing damage per six yards fallen. If the character lands in water at least six feet deep, no matter how far she fell, she takes half damage. In addition, landing in water or on a similarly soft surface, downgrades the lethal damage from a terminal velocity fall to bashing damage. Rationale: Especially in modern cinema, characters often get flung about from heights that would likely turn them into chunky salsa in the real world-and no matter how great the height, landing in a convenient swimming pool seems to make it survivable.
