Custom Content Challenge - August 2023 : They're All Greek to Me!

They’re All Greek to Me!

Ancient Greek mythology. Creatures - Hecatoncheires, Titans, Dryads, Argonauts, Bacchantes, Fauns, etc. Gods and Demi-Gods - Apollo, Aphrodite, Ares, Artemis, Asclepius, Athena, Cronus, Demeter, Dionysus, Eros, Gaia, Hades, Helios, Hephaestus, Hera, Heracles, Hermes, Hestia, Nemesis, Pan, Persephone, Poseidon, Prometheus and Zeus. Might even allow a certain fictional Warrior Princess…

This theme was suggested by NWfan87 and Proleric.


  • It must be fully working in game.
  • Use of vanilla NWN or publicly available texture is fine. Just remember that NWN textures must have dimensions in powers of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.).
  • Teamwork is welcome.
  • Beginners most welcome. Don’t be afraid, just try, you’ll be surprised!
  • “Custom Content” includes many sorts of things: models, scripts, prefabs (areas, items, creatures, conversations, quests, etc.), sounds, portraits, or anything else new for the game.
  • All submissions must be finished, working, and emailed to (or a non-Vault link provided) by the first of the following month. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. :wink:

Some things you could include in the download/email that would make packaging everything up easier and faster:

  • Any 2da lines needed.
  • Screenshot from in game for use on the Vault page. Formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, or .tga
  • Portraits (if needed) of your new goody. Placeables and monsters should include a portrait.
  • Inventory icons (if needed) of your new goody.
  • Any credits you would like listed.
  • If this is your first entry, please tell me what name you would like your work listed under and provide a link to your other NWN content if you want that displayed as well (the link bit is totally optional).
  • Remember, the Challenge is all about fun, sharing, creativity, and surprise!

This thread is for all sorts of discussion about this month’s theme: ideas for things to make, questions/concerns, announcement of what you intend to make, screen-shots of work in progress and/or finished projects.

If you want to discuss the Monthly Custom Content Challenge idea as a whole or wish to submit ideas/themes for future monthly Challenges, please post in its thread here - Custom Content Challenge - Theme Suggestions.

When submitting a new theme, please provide a title and short summary of the theme.

If you have a technical question about some custom content creation, please create a separate thread so that the answers can be found later by anyone, not just people interested in this Challenge.

We’ll try to help!

Have no fear and join the fun!

If anyone is considering animating this dance… don’t. It’s not even remotely ancient, being created especially for the 1964 movie -

IMDB Zorba the Greek.


A classic greek Hydra made with a model from deviantart and animations based on those from the NWN cobra.




Could be possible that someone combine the greco-roman elements from “Roman City Addons”, & “Roman City” with those from “City Exterior Expanded”, Just to have all greco-romman tileset parts in just one tileset?

And If could add greek ships docked and no docked, would be awesome. Can use my birreme placeable from “Custom Content Challenge 2012 Nov - Sea, Air & Land Travel”.

2/3 of the month gone. Nobody else making anything? Not even portraits or loadscreens? Portraits of Ancient Greek warriors are definitely uncommon, you know.


I have a head that might fit, I suppose (the hairstyle might look a little Greek … or a little Viking ^^") but it’s from another game. Is this allowed?

(sorry for my english)


Being from another game won’t be a problem as long as you have permission from the copywrite owners.


Some placeables of for olypian gods made with models from Devianart.


1 week left.


So, here are a selection of ancient Greek portraits I have worked on. Yes, they are all male. That’s simply because there were apparently no actual female warriors (remember the both the Amazons and Xena are fictitious). The different armours represent both the different types of warrior and the armour that the ancient city states used.

Question - are there any that you don’t like (Note these are just the Huge size and are in png format).

These are all from an ancient history site.



The Amazons are not completely fictilious, but I would rather look in South Amerika for them

+1 I found this nice Hopplite somewhere. Useage requires mentioning the name of the artist.

I found these beautiful free armor, they could be nice dresses to create, too bad it’s late, I’m not able to make them and I don’t have the time to learn now, but if someone wants to sit down :wink:


So is Dungeons & Dragons :slight_smile:


Did you not note the source of the images I processed (last full sentence of that post of mine)?


I’m just being tongue in cheek, pay me no mind.

And it is now available to download here.
