Charges a target with a sequence of one or more spells that are activated under conditions specified by the caster. These spells are provided by the caster, at casting time. This is done in the following fashions, based on Magery type:

  • Standard Magery: The caster transfers some of their own prepared spells to the target.
  • Fatigue Magery: The caster expends FP equivalent to casting the chosen spells.
  • Threshold-Limited Magery: The caster's tally increases as though they'd cast the chosen spells.

In all cases, the caster cannot store spells they aren't capable of using themselves and expends resources equivalent to casting the spell, with one exception: casting time. Time comes into play when the spells are actually activated.

Also, due to time constraints, all of the spells must be cast within one minute of the initial triggering condition. This does restrict Contingency to carrying other spells that can be cast in a minute or less.

Each spell is cast in a pre-set manner, with all of it's conditions specified. Contingency has no intelligence with which to pick and choose targets; the best one can do in this regard is specify a triggering condition that can be used as a target.
