The forgotten treasure of a great Sorcerer lies hidden in a long abandoned tower, kept away from the world and its perils for many long years. Time has come to unravel the Sorcerer's mysteries. Travel to the mountains of the West Reach to find the Sorcerer's Tower and uncover it's many secrets. What perils guard The Treasure, and what ordeals must be survived to gain access to The Sorcerer's Realm?


- Travel to surreal magical realms in search of a mysterious treasure.

- Lore friendly and consistent with the style and themes of the rest of the game.

- Many unique environments and locations to explore.

- Additional stories, quests and secrets exist throughout the West Reach mountains.

- Compatible with all Bethesda DLC. No Prerequisites.

***Please read the notes and troubleshooting guide below before posting comments***


- Sorcery can be started by reading A Sorcerer's Folly. Available in the Bards College and in some book form lists.

- The quest can also be started by stumbling upon the locations during exploration.

- Exploration is key. Don't just stick to the path if you want to see everything that Sorcery has to offer.

- Taking followers in this mod is supported, but may encounter minor issues in certain places. Remember, fast travel will always return your follower to you. However, followers will never join you in the Magical Realms

- The mod also features a short series of books that can be found as random book spawns, and one or two specific locations.

- If you have a mod that lets you wear multiple Rings:don't equip more than one of the red, yellow or purple rings at any given time

- Quests include:
+ Sorcery (Side)
+ Atulg's Bounty (Misc)
+The Grahlwraith (hidden)

- Atulg's Bounty is not started within the confines of new quest areas. It is started in Skyrimby finding the body of a Penitus Oculatus agent on the road leading from Falkreath to Cyrodiil/Hammerfall, near the edge of the map.

- Areas include:
+ West Reach Pass
+ The Sorcerer's Tower
+ White Tooth Gorge
+ Lake Hjalfaar
+ Hjalfaar Glacier
+ Numerous magical Realms
+ White Lodge

- How to find Hjalfaar Valley:Hjalfaar Valley can be accessed via the West Reach river which runs through the pass.

Patch 1.4

- Fixed a bad string in the Sorcery objectives.

- Cleared the Alias' for quest items manually before shutting down the quest.

- New title image.

- Slightly different placement for rings. Should be easier for people to find.

Patch 1.31

- Fixed an old String for the West Reach Pass location.

- Set interiors and Realms as no reset zones.

Patch 1.3

- Fixed some small issues with water sounds and some gaps in a cliff.

- Other similar misc changes.

Patch 1.2

- Fixed an issue in the .bsa archive that was breaking things a little.

Troubleshooting Q&A

Q: What could make the game crash to the desktop
A: If crashes or failure to load assets/areas repeatedly occur, it is usually caused by one of two things:

1) Skyrim's limited memory allocation for the use of .esp (mod) files means using a lot of mods (especially large ones) will eventually cause the game to run out of memory and cause issues during gameplay. The solution is simply to use less mods.

2) The .bsa is conflicting with another archive from a mod using the same scripts/assets or otherwise failing to access it's data will cause the game to CTD in the front end menus. Try changing the load order first as the issue can sometimes cause "incompatibilities" between mods that would otherwise work together. If it still won't work, then disable other mods one at a time until it does...

Q: One of the rings fails to work. Help?
A: Sometimes the game doesn't initialize the scripts from the .bsa. Theres a couple of ways to kick it into action. 1) Relaunch the mod (turn it off, save, turn it on, start from scratch) 2) Add another version of the ring to your inventory, using the console.

This looks great I'm gonna give it a try. Your Sea of Ghosts mod was absolutely amazing so I'm hoping this will be similar!

I still have not found a way, to find Asciene again, once she leaves my company. Has anyone the answer to that ?

Played it today and completed it. The 2 rings where easy to find (i collect everything so they where easy xD) the 3rd took a while, reading/understanding the journal helped
ring worlds where nice (really) i did enjoy . Except i didn't know what exactly to do with magic, i used some but nothing worked. well if i had remembered the academy entrance ...found a Video, it was obvious after that...

I also found some of the other locations and the are likewise awesome,
So the mod is doing well, not outdated or not working. I think typos are only a minor thing to complain about. The most don't read the books anyways .

Topic compatility: I did use left hand rings with - it just didn't equip one. Also follower mod (aft) worked fine. and now I have one more xD

Thank you very much for this mod even now.

Also giving follower commands seems bugged for this mod... that's freaking crazy hahah xD

Every lore book has way the hell too many typos and dozens of people are trying to get freaking console commands to work because rings aren't spawning or are bugged. Lmao really cool idea on some of the puzzles but this mod has since passed its expiration date hahaha D:< Oct 4 @ 4:08am 
Played the mod this past week and was pleasantly surprised; a nice quest and it fits perfectly within the game itself. Encountered no bugs of any kind! My only request would be that you can make her stay at one of your homes indefinitely by turning her into one of your housecarls or adoption maybe? Anyway, congratulations on a job well done!

I agree with Bread_Stick. The mod really works - and Asciene is my favourite partner now.She only only nerves, when you go into dungeons !

Don't be turned off anyone, all these people saying the mod is broken clearly have not found any of the rings.
