Hi Charles,
That's basicly what i was thinking of. Any time I take some kind of
medication I have to wait a few minutes for it to begin taking effect.
I would think healing potions would similarly have to take some amount
of time to take effect. It could be something as short as a minute or
two for game time, but the basic idea is that you won't drink it down
and magically be restored to full health.  Especially, considering
Angela gets stabbed with daggers and swords, hit with lightning bolts,
shot with arrows, etc and those kinds of wounds won't heal instantly
no matter what you use.
Also this may force you to rethink your game strategy. If you are
getting killed in battle you might have to retreat from the battle,
hide somewhere, and drink a potion and wait until your health is
restored enough to jump back into the fight. That gets rid of those
battles where you are getting pounded, drink apotion, and keep right
on fighting. Nobody can do that in real life.
