So I read somewhere that in Oblivion, there was some thing that let you create spells. I'm not sure how that works, because I never played Oblivion, but I thought that it was a pretty neat concept. I'm suprised noboby else has made something like this.

Anyway, this mod, quite simply, allows you to use soul gems and the newly added Blank Spell Tomes, along with spells and/or items you have, to create new spells. A process that shall hanceforth be called 'Spellcrafting

First, you need to purchase Blank Spell Tomes. Easy enough, they are found at any merchant that sells spell tomes.
You also need some Filled Black Soul Gems.
What you have to do is take these ingredients and go to one of the four Spellcrafting bowl things in Skyrim (there's one in Dragonsreach, the Blue Palace, the College of Winterhold, and the Abandoned Prison (convinent for those with the "Build Your Own Home" mod like I do)). What you do then is select a spell from the menu of spells you can craft. Then you can imbue the power of other spells you have into the Blank Spell Tome, and when mixed with some soul gems, binds a brand new spell to the blank spell tome.

For example, say you want to make the spell 'Ice Burn' (you do). Since Ice Burn is a Destruction Spell, you'll have to purchase a Blank Destruction Tome from your local wizard or whatever. Ice Burn also requires two filled Black Soul Gems to imbue, because science. So you take your stuff to the spellmaker, and, If you have the spells FIREBALL and ICE STORM, the spellmaker will allow you to craft your sexy new spell tome. However, if you don't have BOTH Fireball and Ice Storm, you can't craft Ice Burn.

In case you wanted to know, Ice Burn shoots an Ice Tornado that will set everything on fire. It's quite fun.

Also, for your convenience, if you already have a spell, you can't craft its spell tome. For example, if you take all your stuff to the Spellmaker, but already know the Ice Burn spell, you can't craft the Ice Burn tome. This is to prevent confusion over what spells you have and what you don't along with keeping the crafting list nice and small once more and more spells can be crafted.

Also also, in Dragonsreach, there is a catalogue for all known spells that can be crafted. Every single spell that can be crafted at a spellmaker is written in that book, along with what ingredients it requires. They are all sorted by Magic School and are listed in alphabetical order.

(there are three secret spells that aren't listed in the book. Let's see if you can find out what they are.)


I'm stunned at how popular this mod is becoming. This mod has about three times the upvotes of the top 5 mods, and has gotten over 250 subscribers in less than a day. Thanks, guys!

There shouldn't be any compatability issues. That means that this mod IS compatable with Midas Magic, Apocalypse and pretty much every spell mod that exists.

Expect updates. Due to the sheer amount of spell combination possibilities, there will always be more spells that can be made, and if I had simply waited to get all the spells done before I posted, it would be another month at least before this was uploaded.

If you find any issues, any bugs or whatnot, let me know so I can fix them.

Dawnguard is NOT required for this mod!

Dude. Fantastic mod. I know some people are complaining about how complicated the spellmaking process is but I'm really glad that you threw in a bit of a need for hard work to get to the end result. Huge kudos!

in oblivion, you alrready needed to know the spell effect, and you had to have gold. It was actually quite cool, no offense, but I found your version a bit more complecated...

is this mod compatable with the build your own house mod? I'm asking because theres a spell crafter right were the house would be.

also in oblivion to craft a spell find a spell maker (looks like a pedalstool) and press SPACEBAR to activate. you need to have the spell in order to get the spell effect and then you need money to have the spell (the more you change the blast range, duratation the mroe magicka and money ot costs then you can stack up as many efects as possible (i did paralisis, fire damamge and armor and weapon corrosion and named the spell, Doom Shater)
yes you can name the spell and it comes out as one not as a spell tome.
also you need to have enough skill to cast it (doom shater required master level destruction)

this mod could be a HELL of alot better if EVERY Merchant sells these, and even BETTER if you find them as random loot I.E from a dungeon, ETC

I am finding some blanks, but not many. It would be awesome if you could craft your own.
