In addition, it can be used as an attack to bodily land on a target, causing damage equal to the attacker's Constitution score plus basic hits, and carries a knockdown effect; the target is allowed a defend action against the attack and a Reaction save to negate the knockdown. A failed skill check indicates that the character missed the jump, as well as the target, and possibly lands prone, depending on the circumstances.
