The rules say you can't carry items if you don't have the icon, but would Torm/fighter (3 weapon symbols) still be able to use a healing potion and not just carry it into the next room? Or are people playing carrying as use as well?
I remember reading somewhere (FAQ? Updated rule book?) that you have to equip an item to use it. Someone in your party must have an empty potion slot. Then that character can use the potion on Torm. If there isn't an empty slot, you'll have to use or discard an item first.
