Q: Dear Sage
Does the Jump check and subsequent jump made as part of the Sudden Leap boost (Tome of Battle p89) count against the initiator's movement as described in the Jump skill?
A: No. Sudden Leap is its own swift action, not part of a move action, so the movement is in addition to any you might make using other actions.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
