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.

Gread mod, I loved the story line. Not particularly difficult, I would love to see this levelled more for higher level players.

Patch the Good Luck - just take the ring off and you should be teleported back. Everyone else, watch the video in discussions to help find the rings. They are in pretty obvious places, though tiny.

too hard to find the rings. rings should always be in a container for this reason.

the red ring isn't working for me

Can't find the red ring, and tempted to just exit the yellow realm with the Teleport: Dovahndor spell, but I'm afraid that might break the quest...

I was enjoying this mod so much while playing but I saved and had to look up a walthrough on youtube for the realm associated with the purple ring, I didnt have bound bow and therefore couldnt complete it without some spell that could reach farther then I could with sparks or etc. But that meant that I had to exit the realm and then go to a fort to get the spell book and when I got back I tried to put on the ring to go back to the realm and it doesnt work anymore... Im not sure what to do now, any suggestions because im kinda stuck?

Well my only problem is i cant Find the Purple Ring xD

The quest was pretty decent, Although finding small tiny rings wasn't fun and the voice actor sounded very uninterested and you could tell she was reading off a script. If those things didn't exist then I'd be pretty happy with the quest.

Just finished this and frankly, I'm amazed. This was just as good as I'd expect from an official DLC, the only thing that let it down slightly was the voice acting. I am now going to go download all your other quest mods! :)

I loved this. It is exactly what I was looking for when I took the plunge into modifying my game. Thank you for your time and effort.
