Archmage Tolfdir

I don't know about you, but when I finished the College of Winterhold questline, I didn't feel like I deserved the title of Archmage.

This mod gives the player the option to make Tolfdir the Archmage at the end of the College of Winterhold questline. You can either tell him he should be Archmage or accept the role yourself. If you tell him to do it, he will take on a new AI package and begin living in the Archmage's quarters and wearing the Archmage's robes. You will still be able to complete the Aftershock quests.

For this mod to function properly, you will need to download the Sound files from the Skyrim Nexus, linked here:

There is no login required. Click the files tab, look in the Optional Files section, find the file called ArchmageTolfdirSoundFiles, and click download manually. The folder will be zipped, so all you have to do to install the files is extract the Sound folder to your Skyrim/Data folder. When prompted, agree to merge the folders.

NOTE: This mod is designed to be activated through a dialogue option at the end of the College of Winterhold questline. If you have already finished the questline, it's not supposed to do anything. I have had some users say that entering the following line into the console:

setstage dialoguewinterholdcollege 5

will give Tolfdir his new AI package, which makes him live in the Archmage's quarters. This should also make him and others stop referring to you as the Archmage.

However, I have also had reports that this does not work. If anyone tries it out, I'd appreciate it if you left a comment saying whether it worked or not. If you do get it to work, I'd like to make the suggestion to open the console, click Tolfdir, and enter the two following lines:

removeitem 10d66f 1
equipitem 10f570

This should remove his old robes from his inventory and equip his new Archmage's Robes. It is important that you remove his old robes from his inventory, or else he will put them back on later. I'm not sure this will work either, so if you try it out, leave a comment and let me know.

when does tolfdir go in the room with the eye of magnus I can not go any further in the college of winterhold quest as tolfdir is never in the room so I can talk to him abou the next step?

How about making a mod that allow us to offer Tolfdir the position of second in command,like a vice president, to run the college, if we as archmage, are off questing, on official businesses ect. He certainly deserves that much if not the archmage position.

Oh, I came back here to ask the same thing twice. Sorry. Didn't realize i had already done so

We need other mods for the Thieves Guild and Companions. Please and Thank you for the must!!!!!

Could you do one that allows any follower to be archmage, now that would be cool!

Wow, I felt it was a humbling experience to recieve it in light of the in-game story, but I do like this.

You need one where Feralda can be Archmage or Master Wizard instead of Tolfidir. Guessing that would mean she heads aftershock quests or something.

Many of the college's members still refer to the player as Arch-Mage, it's kind of immersion breaking.

"I didn't feel like I deserved the title of Archmage"

@leazer425 , is it possible to make another version of this but instead have Mirabelle become the Arch-Mage? she is the 2nd in command after all.
