    Captivating Curse

    "On top of the effects the vampire suffers when he drinks from mortals, he becomes unable to resist the charms of his fellow Kindred either. He is no longer immune to other blood bonds after he reaches the third stage with one regnant." - One Thousand Years of Night, page 24.
    I interpret this to mean two things:
    1) Expand the Wanton Curse to include vampires.
    2) Being Blood bound already doesn't limit you to a single bond.

    Agree / Disagree?

    Except, of course, in cases like being a Daeva elder whose Humanity has dropped to 3 at some point, where that's the express function of the Captivating Curse.

    If you're using vinculum to establish yourself as the one whom your victim is primarily loyal to, then yes because they're equally sycophantic to every other regnant. A particularly cunning thrall may actually leverage it by getting themselves vinculum bound to rivals and play them off against each other. Or bind themselves to multiple junior vampires and pit them against each other for "control" over their elder.

    does being blood bound to 7 or 8 regents make any one bond less relevant?

    Satchel's got it. Mechanically, the Dependent curse just gives you a level two blood bond to humans, so it'd be redundant. The second sentence lays it out.

    Disagree. It's just the latter — the Wanton Curse essentially just adds mortals to the list of things that can cause the problems drinking from Kindred can.
