"or" phrases (e.g. Society of Leopold, Blade Clot)
Society of Leopold
Put this card on a vampire. During his or her controller's untap phase, the vampire with this card either burns 1 blood or is burned (the controller's choice). The vampire with this card can move it to any other vampire as a +1 stealth action.
Question: Is the controlling methuselah allowed to choose the first part of the "or" phrase (e.g. burn 1 blood, go to torpor) even if the given vampire cannot "fulfil" it (since e.g. he has no blood, is already in torpor)?
Requires an anarch.
Only usable when this anarch diablerizes a vampire with capacity 7 or more. Put this card in play with 3 clot counters. When an anarch you control inflicts hand or melee weapon damage, you may move a clot counter from this card to the opposing minion. A minion with a clot counter goes to torpor or is burned during his or her untap phase. If an older vampire rescues the vampire, burn the clot counter.
Thanks in advance!

Sabbat. If this vampire's bleed is successful, he laughs manicly and untaps.
Failing to burn a blood doesn't satisfy the requirement to "burn a blood". Think of it more like a cost if you prefer.
Since, by failing to burn a blood, the condition remains unsatisfied,
you'll still have to burn the vampire.
You can go to torpor if you're already there. (Unless you're an ally.)

The latter (or a vampire's controller can choose to burn him, if desired).
Incorrect. You can go to torpor when already there.
Please don't tell people how cards function based on your personal ephemeral "idea" of the card.
That analogy is true for Blade Clot (i.e. you will not be spanked if you are already in your room).
However, it does not hold true for Society of Leopold. That is closer to something like "pay up now or lose your finger...you don't have the money? ok, we'll take the finger"
