Dwemertech - Magic of the Dwarves

Dwemertech features a questline with several voiced characters revolving around the planned return of the Dwemer to Nirn. Your reward for intervening are 42 unique Alteration, Destruction and Restoration staves and associated spells and 14 bionic upgrades. Playtime 1-3 hours.



· 42 all new custom Alteration, Destruction and Restoration spells.
· Questline based on expanded TES lore.
· 3 voiced main characters.
· An epic Dwemer base set on Masser.
· An elaborate questline.
· Configuration options available in the Dwemertech MCM if SkyUI is installed (SkyUI not required to use Dwemertech).


The Dwemer have returned

The Dwemer need you, Nirnling! The few surviving Dwemer scientists on Masser are hatching a plan to bring the Dwemer back from the mysterious place they escaped to. Do you help them or are you in it for the loot or the killing? All you need to do is reach skill level 40 in Alteration, Destruction or Restoration and cast a spell. You will be contacted...

The quest is designed to blend in with the vanilla game and features advanced mechanics and voiced actors with their own custom gear, set in and around a highly advanced Dwemer outpost on one of Nirn's moons.

Explore and exterminate

Upon completing the main quest, enemies may randomly teleport to Nirn in random places when you use Dwemer spells. Deal with the disruption for a nice reward. By using certain Bionics, you can trawl Dwemer ruins, find scientifically interesting objects and beat the valuable components out of them.

Schematics, staves and transcripts

Upon reaching a certain point in the questline, you can purchase Schematics from Cuomac. Schematics are used as base materials to create mechanical Staves at a Forge. Staves can then in turn be converted into Transcripts, which are the technological version of spellbooks. You can also purchase Bionics, which grant a permanent passive bonus when used.

Note that you can only buy Schematics up to your corresponding skill level in their respective school: Alteration, Destruction or Restoration. To buy better Schematics, get better at magic!

This versatile light power can be picked up during the questline. It charges up in bright daylight and slowly discharges itself in darkness and indoors by emitting light with a colour of your choice.


The enemies do not attack!
You have the No Skill Limit mod installed. If you are sufficiently low level, this mod will automatically reduce NPC skill levels to the point where they are too unskilled to use their own spells. This is why that mod just isn't a very good idea.

Framerate loss in Mephala's Realms or after using Shelter or Portal Network!
ENB has issues when the player is moved between two areas by a script or by using the coc console command. It usually fixes itself after a while, but you may want to fast travel to fix it sooner. This is an ENB bug and out of my control.

I can't see anything in exterior areas due to all the bloom!
Certain ENBs exaggerate bloom to the point where even a slight amount of ambient bloom will wash out the picture. Press Shift-Enter and turn off BLOOM in the ENB settings.

Distant terrain is low quality and there is no map!
In order to cram the mod into the allotted 100 MB of Workshop space, I was forced to get rid of some high resolution LOD files.

Why can't I buy most of the spells?
You need a high enough level in Alteration, Destruction or Restoration to buy high level spells. Also, remember vendor restock delays, and don't forget that cheating with setav doesn't work.

Why can't I trigger the Invasion event again?
There is a cooldown period of 4 ingame days.

Questline troubles (spoiler alert!)

Rkunhanch threw me around, now what? If I go back in through the door, I die!
He is supposed to grab you with telekinesis and eject you onto Masser. It appears that certain physics or skeleton mods make every actor weigh several tons, and as a result he cannot throw you hard enough and you are stuck inside the base. If this happens, type tcl into the console and clip through the forcefields out of the base, then proceed from there.

I'm told Rkunhanch is up to no good, but there's a laser wall blocking the observation room!
He is not supposed to be in the observation room. He is supposed to have been reset to his spawn point, but the game sometimes ignores this command. It is unclear why, but it does not appear to be a bug in the mod. Players with this issue all seem to have slow script execution due to many active scripts (including remnants of uninstalled mods), which may stall the script long enough for it to break.

I beat Rkunhanch to the reactor when I had to race him and nothing happens!
He runs faster when you do, so you are not supposed to overtake him. If you enter the reactor room before he reaches it, the quest breaks. Congratulations on being too clever!

Level, build, skills, ability to dodge their shots?

> Good thing I'm trying the special edition port lol. Did you not know it has been already ported? Are your IDs different from the classic edition mod? I'd assume not.

I don't know what the port did because I didn't make the port. Anyway, the Workshop community is all too eager to cheat for the slighest provocation and I'm pretty sure you do in fact have the item and just overlooked it. :P

the tech priests are insane! can you nerf them a bit?

Good thing I'm trying the special edition port lol. Did you not know it has been already ported? Are your IDs different from the classic edition mod? I'd assume not.

> When Cuomac said i need to speak with Rkunhanch, he doesn't show up there
Can i know id for him, because i would spawn him in room

He does. If he doesn't, that means your scripts didn't run, which means you'll have tons of problems with other mods and the vanilla game down the road. Fix your game.

> since Cuomac isn't showing to give me the levitation thing. Are there any console commands that could help me progress?

The item has been added to your inventory. Naturally, this being the Steam Workshop, the immediate response is to cheat.

> Trying this one out on Special Edition.

This isn't a Special Edition mod. Get the port for Special Edition. -_-

> when i click subscribe, it wont download it fully

Not responsible for Steam Workshop issues. Post on the Steam Workshop support forum.

Trying this one out on Special Edition. Stuck at quest point where I have to throw the fiends at the screen, since Cuomac isn't showing to give me the levitation thing. Are there any console commands that could help me progress?

So.. i'm not getting 'contacted' and I have level 73 destruction and atleast 40 restoration and alteration, what am I doing wrong??
Enai Siaion  [author] Jan 16 @ 10:38am 
That would require a doubled up quest path, resulting in massive extra work which no one would see tbh. There are some minor forks though.

Ok, this mod is cool and all, but is there any way to actually not antagonize Rkunhanch?
