There is a certain Tzimisce power that allows you to take in foreign blood without incurring Blood Bond penalites - a combination discipline of Vicissitude and Auspex called "The False Drink".
From what I can discern, to learn an out-of-clan discipline (say, Protean), the student must find a capable mentor and drink one point of their blood, which would normally result in a level 1 Blood Bond.
Would The False Drink prevent the Blood Bond resulting from this procedure, or is it inevitable?
I would love to hear versions from both V20 and V5 on this one.
Edit: Based on Jadasc's answer, additional decomposition of the question may be required:
- Is the consumption of mentor vitae necessary to being learning a Discipline from them?
- If 1 is "no", can the mentor be deceived via The False Drink?
