Default Re: Catfall, Perfect Balance, and jumping from tightrope to tightrope

Catfall allows them to treat a fall of that height as no fall at all, and Perfect Balance allows them to treat a well-anchored tightrope as plain level ground. Do the traits thus interact as I have described?
I wouldn't say so. If you hit the rope then it's like jump from one spot of ground to another...but you do have to hit the rope and that does require a jumping roll or an acrobatics roll.
