Custom Content Challenge: July 2018: Murderously Cute


The theme for this month's challenge: "Murderously Cute":

Everything cute and murderous - think giant teddy bear monster. Evil rocking horse. Floating smiley faces that bite when they attack. Ribbon and bow accessories. Button eye head VFXs. Childrens' toys placeables or holdables - think doll with or without ripped off head. Jerkily-animated life-sized barbie doll creatures. Cribs. Diaper placeables that trigger exploding traps. A giant walkable dollhouse. Doll clothes for PCs. If it's usually supposed to be cute, playful, and harmless, then it can be used to murder unsuspecting players too.

This theme was suggested by TheBarbarian.


  • 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 August 1st, 2018. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. ;-)

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

  • 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 goodie. Placeables and monsters should include a portrait.
  • Inventory icons (if needed) of your new goodie.
  • 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, screenshots 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

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!

“Scary bunny stuffed animal”

Makes a nice environmental placeable.


…“cute, playful, harmless…” hehehe giant baby time


Lord, I hope you don’t mean Traitor Baby… :exploding_head:


Do you mean like Chihiro (hope I spelled it right) from “Spirited Away”?

To me murderously cute are things like these dolls -

and these little aliens -

from Galaxy Quest.



The zug zug’s from Beyond the Deepwoods by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell are, almost by definition, murderously cute.


Late to the party, but not skipping out on my own CCC theme. Using the occasion to fill a horrible gaping void in our lives from which we have truly all suffered for far too long even if we did not realize it (or maybe just fuel the flames of the Pro-Pony versus Anti-Pony war for my personal amusement):







I hope @kamal is happy now…



Needs Moar FLOOF!



Warning: Floofy pink unicorns may explode upon contact.


That’s more like it.


Couple of random facts relating to unicorns -

The Throne of Denmark was said to be made of unicorn horn. It was actually made of narwhal tusk.

When notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar’s daughter asked him for a unicorn, he had a horn stapled on to a horse’s head.



What about that orange one in the background from one of the screenies? Are we going to be able to get that one too?



O’course. Plus a couple more color variants, plus the layered file to make one’s own. THE HERD MUST BE A LEGION OF RAINBOWS AND GLITTER.


On the off chance anybody feels like drawing up some custom cutie marks… that would be terribly convenient just about now. :grin:


Haha this is too awesome!

I was going to post a link to the unicorn scene in Cabin in the Woods, but I’m not sure if it’s too gory. In any case, it’s recommended (the entire movie, that is) for anyone who likes fantasy monsters.


While this short cartoon strip about sums up MLP for me, I don’t really know what you mean by cutey marks. So could you link to some images that illustrate them please.





Color variant pictures. Using class icons for cutie marks.


Beware: Tiny fluffy ponies may explode into glitter and EVEN MORE PONIES if struck.

Doom by pony is certain to those who would strike tiny defenseless ponies.
