[White Wolf][WOD] Announcing "Storyteller's Vault"

Postby willpell » Sat Aug 12, 2017 12:07 am

From the Department of Shameless Rip-Offs comes this of a furrier, fangier, and otherwise basically identical response to the success of DM's Guild:

Newsletter wrote:White Wolf Entertainment, creator of the World of Darkness and Vampire: The Masquerade are partnering with DriveThruRPG to allow independent content creators to publish material set in the World of Darkness using the Storytellers Vault.

For over a quarter century, fans of the World of Darkness have aspired to bring their own unique World of Darkness creations to the masses, and now they can as part of the Storytellers Vault, White Wolf’s new creator content program. Beginning with Vampire: The Masquerade, aspiring writers, artists, and game designers can publish their non-canonical table top RPG supplements and fiction stories worldwide in the language of their choosing, and making half of the revenue as their royalty. To assist content creators making the best possible products, Storytellers Vault offers a considerable variety of graphical layout tools including pre-made design templates, and art-packs to choose from.

“World of Darkness fans have always shared their stories with the world, and now is the time we help them to do that in an even greater scale” says CEO Tobias Sjögren. “The magic of the Storytellers Vault is supporting fans that love and want to create content from all eras of our games, we can’t wait to see what they produce and how everyone enjoys it!”

The Storytellers Vault features:

Self-publish service for table top RPG material set using any of the four previously published editions of Vampire: The Masquerade
Content creators themselves set the price for the material they publish and receive 50% of the revenue
Access to over 15 templates and art packs produced helps content creators make their work look as professional as the official products from any set era
Publishing in any language supporting the vast global World of Darkness community
Additional content supporting other game lines and historical settings in the White Wolf catalogue will be progressively unlocked beginning in October 2017

The Storytellers Vault is now available at http://www.storytellersvault.com.

Interesting. I wonder if other companies will try this as well? Are there any limitations to edition/rules variants or setting continuity?

How about Monte Cook's World of Darkness? Will that one be allowed? :o

Chaosium has done something similar in the past for Call of Cthulhu, including print products (MULA).
