These are put in a "pool" where they can not be accessed by him. He may remove up to up to 1/10th of his maximum hit points, ki points, and/or AC from the pool as a free action, bonus action, or reaction on his turn. Dende may spend ki points to increase the amount added or removed from the pool by the initial amount added or removed per ki point spent.
