Default Katas & Powers

Katas from the new Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seem to have the same mechanics as Powers in other Munchkin Games. This begs the question: In a mash-up game, are Katas and Powers distinct or indistinct?

Edit: Having now played Harry Potter Munchkin, I must had Proficiency to this list. So, Powers, Proficiency, and Katas. Distinct or Indistinct?

I too am curious on this. Id rule they are all different because I just like chaos in my games. But an official, well as official as the secret masters can get, word on this subject would be fnord nice.

They're all the same thing with different names.

Wow. I fully expected the ruling to go the other way.

This does simplify things for mash-up games.

Powers=Katas=Proficiency. Time to update that FAQ! :)

They work exactly the same, so they are equivalent, just like Allies and Hirelings and Sidekicks.

Thanks for the reply. It does make it easier, albeit less chaotic. Time to edit my con rules sheet
