Learning Out of Clan Disciplines

Post  AST Jim on Wed Nov 13, 2013 5:16 pm

This will replace the rules which had previously been in-place to restrict the spread of disciplines.  While it will now be easier to learn out-of-clan disciplines, please keep in mind that, especially outside the Sabbat, this is a serious exchange and commitment, not to be undertaken lightly.  

To start the mystical process of assimilating a new out-of-clan Discipline, the learning vampire must drink a point of blood from someone who possesses the desired discipline in-clan (the teacher) before instruction can begin.  This will create a Blood Bond of the appropriate level (for those subject to the Vinculum, it will result in an increase of your vinculum rating toward the vampire in question).  

Learning out of clan disciplines takes an additional week longer per level than learning a normal discipline, given the time needed to assimilate the knowledge contained in the domitor's blood.  

A notable exception to this is the three physical disciplines, Celerity, Fortitude and Potence.  They can be learned without finding a teacher, and require no Blood Bond to develop.  However, if developed in this fashion, they cannot be raised above the third dot.  They will be subject to out-of-clan costs and learn times, however.  

Finally, in order to teach a new discipline to someone, your character must have a level higher than the level she is trying to teach.  For example, if the student wishes to learn Obfuscate 2, the teacher must possess Obfuscate 3 in order to instruct.  Additionally, out-of-clan disciplines cannot be taught.  Caitiff/Panders treat all disciplines as out-of-clan.

Correct, provided the domitor is willing to continue teaching (each discipline level must be taught separately).

Does this count even in the sabbat with the Viniculum ? Or will that count as the bond for learning?

The vinculum suffices, yes.
