It says in the rules that Ice prevents characters from taking unique actions. In another section of the rules it states unique actions are printed on your character card and can come from other sources such as potions (bottom of pg 15 classic rules) and under the potion description is says the character gains a one use no action support or offensive action with the unique action icon next to it.

My question is, if you are suffering ice and drink a potion are you not allowed to use the ability granted by the potion? This seems very "choke" like from the previous V1 of SDE.

I think that potions are not considered "actions" so you can still drink potions when you're iced. In fact, it might even make them taste better. Ah, a nice cold Ninja Pop!

Potions, when used, give the hero access to an action of that color. Sooooooo.

If you drink a red potion, you get a free red action, which you can't use while frozen!

I don't see how this would limit you if you happened to use a green potion, however.

Potion actions are not 'unique actions', which are the only sorts of action Ice prevents a Hero from using. Their only typing is offensive/support. Therefore you can use an potion of any type even whilst suffering from Ice.

To resurrect this... do we have an official ruling on this? New rulebook, old problems...

Ice: "A model suffering Ice may not use unique actions."

Potions: "Drinking a potion grants the model a free unique action, that does not cost any action points, of the following type: support action, offensive action, support action."

So is Ice really that powerful?

I claim the right to be unhappy
