Advice on FitD hacking an existing TTRPG IP

Does anyone here have experience making/releasing a FitD hack of another existing game system?

I started working on a my first hack, a conversion for W20 (Werewolf: the Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition) to FitD in early 2021 and I’m considering doing an Actual Play of it starting in a couple of weeks. I’m not planning on selling the hack, but I will be making it available to my paid Patreon supporters before I make it public.

I’m trying to figure out if there is a likelihood that the IP owners will come after us. I know a new edition of Werewolf (W5) is in active development (Paradox/White Wolf) and W20 is still releasing supplements (Onyx Path).

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hard to tell really. Are they litigious?
Someone here might know better than me, but I advice you ask in other places, like the Werewolf reddit for example. They might know if they’ve sued or issued copyright notices, or whatever it’s called, before.
