Contingency Psionic

Level: Psion/wilder 6

longer; see text
Range: Personal
Target: You
Duration: One day/level (D) or until
Power Points: 11, XP

You can place another power upon your person so that it comes into effect under some condition you dictate when manifesting psionic contingency. The psionic contingency power and the companion power are manifest at the same time. The 10-minute manifesting time is the minimum total for both manifestations; if the companion power has a manifesting time longer than 10 minutes, use that instead.

The power to be brought into effect by the psionic contingency must be one that affects your person (concealing amorpha, psionic levitate, psionic fly, psionic teleport, and so forth) and be of a power level no higher than one-third your manifester level (rounded down, maximum 6th level).

The conditions needed to bring the power into effect must be clear, although they can be general. For example, a psionic contingency manifested along with concealing amorpha might prescribe that any time you are attacked, the concealing amorpha power instantly comes into effect. Or a psionic contingency could bring a catfall power into effect any time you fall more than 4 feet. In all cases, the psionic contingency immediately brings into effect the companion power, the latter being “manifested” instantaneously only when the prescribed circumstances occur. If complicated or convoluted conditions are prescribed, the power combination (psionic contingency and the companion power) may fail when called on.

You can use only one psionic contingency companion power at a time; if a second is manifested, the fi rst one (if still active) is dismissed.

XP Cost: 15 XP.
