I feel bad asking this given how much I’ve played, but nothing came up during a search.

What does athletics actually do? I’ve yet to encounter a roll for Athletics... if there’s just a difference in jumping... that’s totally not worth choosing it as a skill.

In PnP it is useful when grappling/escaping a grapple. Grappling isn't in EA yet.

I believe it also impacts things like the distance you are able to jump, for example.

There is at least one Athletics check to escape imprisonment in the Goblin camp. Of course, you have to be imprisoned first, and that takes takes a number of dialogue selections, and at least one racial check just to be imprisoned.

So I suspect there will be more checks. Hopefully, things like walking on beams might be included as well for acrobatics. Shadowheart with her 9 dexterity has an Olympian's balance as she moves around on a beam and is able to not only walk, but jump and attack from what appears to be a balance beam sized rafter.
