Thanks for the help with the other thing, it looks easy..  but what I
mean above is that a character can get 4 breads and kick between rounds
but he cannot quaff 4 potions and kick, after the first potion he cannot
do anything else in that segment between rounds.

So I want these to be options:

Previous attack
-get potion bag
-quaff potion
-kick fido
Next attack


Previous attack
-quaff potion
-quaff potion
-quaff potion
-cas 'magic' fido
Next attack

I hope I am doing ok explaining my ideas :)
