edit: OP deleted his post, but I've already quoted him.
one of them is the owner and knows the rulesI've got some great news for you, buddy. Let me present you with humanity's greatest invention after the Fire and the Wheel: the INTERNET!
With the Internet, you can see the rules and the skills for yourself:
Once a turn, except in combat:
Discard one wound from hand.
if you do, draw a new card.
It clearly says "once a turn". Not "during other players' turns. This is clearly marked in relevant skills, such as Motivation.
Tell your friend to read the skill description again. Errors happen.

Forward 1, Forward 2, Forward 3... siege attack 5?
Why for this life there's no man smart enough, life's too short for learning every trick and bluff.
I can see how the mistake arises - "once a turn" could, in other games, include other players' turns. Also, I feel no pain is a bit of a crap skill, which might influence a player into interpreting it loosely to make it (a lot) better.
However, the rules are clear enough. Throughout the rulebook, the phrases "each turn" and "the turn" are used to refer to things that a player can do on their turn. For example: "Each turn, players will play Deed cards from their hand". Likewise, mana rules state: "Each turn, a player may take one mana die from the Source and use it as mana of the color shown on the die".
You can't play deed cards during other players' turns, obviously, unless you are involved in a cooperative assault/defence or PvP. Taking a mana die from the source during every players' turn would be equally absurd.
If this owner is willing to concede this, then you should be able to convince him the same is true for skill use too.
As Picon points out, skills that usable during other players' turn are limited to once a round, and specify quite clearly that they are usable "on any players' turn".
