I hope you guys can help me once more...
I know what a ki ability is and I know how to get one activated.
What I dont know is, where can I find the ki ability in the profil.

There are some abilities marked with (HP) in the rulebook, but I cant find what this means and permanent abilities should be marked with (PA)...
But looking on a heroes profile, who should have two ki abilities, there aren't really two of a kind...

Second guess... (HP) is spanish and means habilidad permanente or something like this (spanish is a language I cant speak :D )
But then the Buke Taisho for example has only one ki ability

Sorry guys...I'm a bit confused!

That is a big mistake of the previous version. I printed the army list directly using the database and I forgot to translate HP to PA (which indeed means Permanent ability - Habilidad Permanente.. very well! XD).

I have also added a note in the new rules version (coming soon) to make this clear: The Ki abilities are those that not have a PA mark next to them.

Taishos have 2 PA abilities indeed and only 1 ki ability. To have a second PA ability is better than a second Ki ability because PA is always active, no matter if the troop has been activated or got a 6 in the Order Roll. Taishos are the great commanders of every clan so we gave them this extra Permanent ability.

Look at this sample (use firefox or chrome if it is possible): Army Heroes Sample

The Daimyo Buke has 1 Permanent Ability and 2 Ki abilities: Strategic is a permanent ability (PA): It is active at any moment of the game. The other two are Ki abilities. When he roll the Order Roll and get a 6, the Daimyo must decide if use Mimetic or Tactician.

The Taisho Buke has 2 Permanent Ability and 1 Ki ability: Clan Leader and Hatred of Kuge are always active, he do not need to get a 6. If he rolls a 6 in the Order Roll he will also activate Deflect hit.

So the Taishos can have 3 abilities at the same time in front of the rest of the heroes that only can have 2 at the same time.

What do you think about this?
Thanks for asking!!!

Thanks @ajmendoza for the example, now it is clear to me! Wasn't sure about the PA-thing, so I wanted to ask.
I was a bit confused as well, because on the "actual rulebook" on page 78 stands "heroes have two Ki abilices for example" so I was wondering about the buke taisho! Thought that every hero always has 2 ki abilities. Maybe this should be written in other words!
