A manually triggered ability is an ongoing ability that is directly triggered by the holder. Triggered ongoing abilities only appear on Fortresses and cards being treated as Artifacts. They are triggered immediately on cards being treated as Enhancements. Manually triggered abilities can be identified by the phrase “when holder chooses”. The phrase only applies for Covenant and Curse cards when they are used as Artifacts. If the condition for the trigger is met, the holder must be given the choice to activate the ability before another card can be played.
