Since I am a non-native English speaker, I was curious what the different VtES disciplines actually mean. Some are easy to interpret like Presence or Dominate, but the meanings of others are quite hard to grasp. Starting with this post I will post on the meaning and origins of the various discipline words, starting with vicissitude, which among other things means:
vi·cis·si·tude [vi-sis-i-tood, -tyood] – noun
  • a condition of constant change or alternation
  • change; mutation; mutability
  • regular change or succession of one state or thing to another
The word vicissitude originates from Latin "vicissitudo" meaning change or alteration.

Well.. going from the ready region to torpor is a kind of change.
