At this time, you cannot publish the following material:
New core rulebooks
Kindred of the East
Unlocked historical settings or time periods outside what is considered the norm for an era. (The Renaissance, Great War, etc)
Fictional locations and made up cities in the modern real world are not allowed. (e.g. Gotham City, Sunnydale, Santa Carla, Derry Maine, etc.) Content creators should do their best to set their products in places that are (or were) real. Products involving otherworldly realms or other mystical places have a leeway to describe those in the same manner found in previous White Wolf publications. Historical settings should make an attempt to utilize real locations to the best of their ability with the understanding that discrepancies will take place.
Supernatural types from the World of Darkness other than vampires and ghouls might be referenced but not featured
Crossovers with other White Wolf properties
Copyrighted material that is not White Wolf’s, which also means no crossovers with properties that are not White Wolf’s. For example: no Highlander: The Quickening, Crow: The Risen, etc.
All the material should be kept reasonably within theme (including not big historic changes). For example: no post-apocalyptic Vampire, no steampunk Vampire, etc.
Products based on the Mind’s Eye Theatre (MET) system
Products based on the Storytelling System used for Exalted and Chronicles of Darkness
Products based on Exalted or Chronicles of Darkness (Vampire: The Requiem, Werewolf: The Forsaken, Mage: The Awakening, etc.)

You can create content for the Vampire: The Masquerade modern setting, Kindred of the Ebony Kingdom, Vampire: The Dark Ages, and Vampire: The Victorian Age historical settings. At this time, you cannot create content for other historical settings, or any other White Wolf product as listed above.
Modern Vampire: The Masquerade is considered any time period post Victorian Age to present day. Also, any time period not explicitly covered with their own fully defined historical setting (Dark Ages, Victorian Age etc) is considered part of Vampire: The Masquerade by default.
Vampire: The Dark Ages is considered any time from the 5th to the 15th century AD.
Vampire: The Victorian Age is considered any time from 1830 to 1901.
At this time, Storyteller System RPG supplements, fiction, and artwork (illustration and photography).
No artwork may be used from any White Wolf publications, except those specifically made available here on StorytellersVault.com.

Please read the FAQ further for more information on the use of art and logos in your content.
Content creators are required to have secured any image release rights from any models that may appear in any illustrations or photography.
Logos and Trade Dress
The Storytellers Vault logo must appear on the cover of your work. It needs to be legible when viewed at full size. It should not be the primary logo or title on your cover. You may not use any other logos from White Wolf publications on RPG supplements or fiction products, but are encouraged to use the appropriate trade dress whenever possible.
You are highly encouraged, but not required to use the templates provided by White Wolf when creating your work.
You can find the templates here.

Illegal and Infringing content is not allowed. It is the content creator’s responsibility to ensure that their content does not violate laws, or copyright, trademark, privacy, or other rights.
Content creators who wish to publish extreme material of a decidedly adult nature are required to use the Black Dog label so as to clearly identify this type of content. Content of this nature includes excessive graphic violence, nudity and graphic sexual situations, etc. White Wolf reserves the right to inform content creators that their published material needs to be rebranded under the Black Dog label if necessary. White Wolf reserves the right to ask content creators to remove this imprint label if its usage is not deemed necessary.
Create, don’t copy. White Wolf reserves the right to stop publishing and selling your work if it is deemed to go against the spirit of the Storytellers Vault program. All authors should respectfully use the content originally created by White Wolf or other Storytellers Vault creators. For example, if a Storytellers Vault author releases a series of city By Night supplements all set in the same geographic area, and another author takes those supplements, compiles them, and republishes them as a single collection, without substantive original additions or changes, then we would stop publishing and selling that collected work because it adds no value to the Storytellers Vault community content. This type of behaviour will be dealt with harshly, and risks the infringer being permanently expelled from the Storytellers Vault program.
