A friend who knows I'm a big fan of the Tzimisce clan asked me how Vicissitude works. After I told her that it's permanent unless you are from a better generation (or you are a Nosferatu and used Vicissitude to cancel your curse), she said that it's super strong, then presented me with a situation:
Let's say that I play a vampire of a high generation, and a Tzimisce with a lower one uses Vicissitude on me to make one of my arms useless. Can I cut my arm off from where the Vicissitude effect started and regenerate it from that point? Or is my arm forever useless until I find a friendly Tzimisce to cancel the effect?
My guess as an ST would be yes, at least for keeping the game fun, but I didn't find if RAW it's true or not. So, can you counter Vicissitude's effects by cutting off an affected limb then regenerating it?
