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.
The following text must be placed within the Work, wherever the Work otherwise lists legal and copyright information:

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.
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.
