I'm looking into playing a revenant in V:tR 2E at the moment (I have my reasons for not starting out a full Kindred) and I'm looking over the character creation process.
On page 81, it says, "Choose three dots of Disciplines. At least two must be in-clan disciplines."
On page 94, it says, "Revenants may only learn Disciplines out-of-clan and cannot learn clan-specific Disciplines without a teacher."
If my reading is correct, then a revenant can only take ONE starting Discipline dot as the other two are withheld waiting for an in-clan Discipline that isn't there yet, and a revenant starts out with less goodies than even a ghoul.
I am perfectly fine with that answer, especially if the two dots are held in reserve until I get a full embrace and are then free to be spent (which is my default interpretation), but I wanted to check if I was correct on this before approaching my Story-Teller.
