Reading through the character weaknesses and powers, it sounds like Rocky is at a major disadvantage not being able to pick up more than one piece of equipment. Among other things, it means he can't use the trading post (other than 1 gold for 1 item) - which makes a gold collecting strategy harder. He can't stop at spaces with equipment on them either, which could block him quite a lot near the end of the game. His power doesn't seem to compensate for these weaknesses.
Not having had a chance to play yet, though - does it seem he is at a disadvantage in practice? If so, any ideas about improving him (e.g. a better power)?

I have very limited experience, but items are not necessary to win. The other characters weaknesses can be pretty painful too. My guess/assumption right now is that the characters are balanced. But I'm interested to hear from people who have played more.
