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.

My biggest issue is that I try to wear the purple ring and it won't teleport me to the magical realm. Any ideas on how to fix it?

I have to say I greatly enjoyed this mod,. As with the others I have played I was quite impressed with the amount of details and imagination that has gone into it. It is a lot better than some other mods I have tried.
On the first attempt the puple ring did not work, but on the second attempt everything worked perfectly. Nice twist at the end, I never saw that coming. I also do not undetstand this criticism of voice acting, personally I think it is pretty good (again I have come accross many worse examples, and for the rest of you just be thankful this mod actually includes voice acting before you make judgements).
Each to their own opinion, I think this is a nice little mod with good design, a handy little hide out and it makes for a very very good sidequest. Keep up the good work, I thoroughly enjoyed the other mods :)

@clbycarter If you are looking for the IDs refer to the discussions above. If those don't help, open the console [~ key] in game and type in </help sorcery> (without the < and >). Then, use page up/page down keys (over in the numpad area) until you find the rings with their respective IDs next to them. Once you have those type in <player.additem ID# 1> (again, without the < and >). I hope this helps.

This is a very poorly made mod with errors, bugs, and glictches everywhere you go. Unless you know how to work console commands, this mod is not for you. Secondly, the audio on the voice acting is terrible and forced, but not nearly as bad as the audio in the Sea of Ghosts mod by the same author. That was truly awful. Thirdly, this is designed for low level melee users who are not high leveled. At level 76, I was on legendary mode using steel arms and armor and I breezed right through the combat. I can say the exact same about every mod this person makes. Poor quality and poorly made.

Okay, where is this Oculatus agent at? I've found the gate to Hammerfell and near it is a horse and two dead bandits but I can't find the note that starts Atulg's quest. Am I in the wrong place?

I have to say that mod looked great at first, but after i got stuck searching for the purple ring for an hour I think it has major problems. Before i knew i had to find little ring, i used the fire rune spell to kill the spider and made all the object in the room fly everywhere. The purple ring is now somewhere in the room, maybe behind a desk or under the bed, i don't know. All i know is if your mod can be made impossible to complete onyl because of the use of a vanilla spell, there's something you did wrong
