Kings and Conquerors: The Hellenistic Era is a total conversion modification for Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots.
Our aim is to bring the Hellenistic period to life.


  • A set of highly unique factions.
  • A huge number of new units with high quality textures, and most with custom models
  • New unit types, such as priests, levies, mercenaries and elite units.
  • Many new wonders and buildings. Nations will receive Unique Buildings in addition to Unique Units that provide a range of bonuses.
  • A new political system with three tiers of policy decisions, providing strong bonuses and unlocking new units and buildings.
  • Army reforms can be enacted to upgrade and unlock units.
  • Combat mechanics overhauled. Ranged units may now miss their target, flanking damage has been drastically increased and units can no longer turn around instantly to counter an attack from behind.
  • Increased population limit and map sizes; a number of maps have been altered to fit with the mod's Hellenistic period setting.

We can use the help of any experienced modders who are willing to make a contribution. We need modellers, animators and scripters especially. Please send a PM here if you are interested.

If you have any feedback or issues, please post in the mod forum here: Moddb.com

Additional Note: the End of an Era

I'm sorry to say, but is the last update to the Hellenistic Era I'll personally be putting out. It's been almost nine years since I made my first mod for this game (it's still up on Rise of Nations Heaven!), so I figured it was about time I moved on. There is however a 'fan-fork' of sorts being developed by Robur Velvetclaw (who has contributed to this mod from the very beginning), which you can get here. Velvetclaw's mod has many more playable factions and heaps of new unit and building art, though it may be missing core features or content that I specifically developed for this latest release. So you might as well try out both!

Lastly, I want to say a huge thanks to everyone who has supported this mod over the years, whether it's been through content creation, research, feedback or simply just a kind word here and there. While it's obviously disappointing that I wasn't able to get this mod to a state of completion, with everything I've had going on in my personal life, I'm glad (and a little bit surprised) that I've been able to get this one final release online, and I hope you have as fun playing it as I had making it!

It's been a good ride.

After 5 years of hard work, Kings & Conquerors 1.0 is now available for download from Steam at : Steamcommunity.com

There are a couple of bugs and kinks, but we think it has reached a point where it is mostly playable. We hope you will enjoy it, and wish you well.

Are you close to finishing all the factions in the mod when will 0.3 release??? I found a way to make walls by putting the building art files in the general directory RoN/T&P/Art...i would like to see all civilazations like the parthians, carthagenians and the northern barbaric tribes.

Once more I iterate - it IS COMPLETE.
There is no 0.3. Because The Wolf Among Lions IS the 1.0 version. It just is not intended for Gold release - no chance of that happening yet. Only Steam/EE users have access to the finished mod as of now.

I have plans to make the files of the mod eventually available outside of Steam Workshop (as part of an exercise to change some of the 300BC factions to 200BCE factions like Israel). You can then download them but it will take some reverse engineering to get them to work. But I can't guarantee anything at the moment.
