The manifester can place another power upon his or her person so that the latter power comes into effect under some condition the manifester dictates when manifesting contingency. The contingency power and the power it is to bring into effect are manifested at the same time. The 10-minute manifestation time is the minimum total for both manifestations; if the companion power has a manifestation time longer than 10 minutes, use that manifestation time instead.

The power to be brought into effect by the contingency must be one that affects the manifester's person and be of a power level no higher than one-third the character's manifester level (rounded down, maximum 6th level).

The conditions needed to bring the power into effect must be clear, although they can be general. The contingency immediately brings into effect the second power, the latter being manifested instantaneously when the prescribed circumstances occur. Note that if complicated or convoluted conditions are prescribed, the whole power complex (contingency and the companion power) may fail when called on. The companion power occurs based solely on the stated conditions, regardless of whether the character wants it to.

Only one contingency power can be in use at a time; if a second is manifested, the first one (if still active) is negated.
