Spellcrafter - A Spell Mixing Mod

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!

The removal of creating custom spells in Skyrim like there were in TES III and IV was, hands down, my biggest disappointment with this game as a mage player. I got so far with Destruction in Oblivion that I made a touch spell that pretty much instantly killed anything but the toughest enemies in one hit lol. While this doesn't have the freedom I am looking for (seeing as it seems this is mostly a mod with premade spells [of which there are many similar mods] that you have to craft rather than fully creating a personally unique spell) I may try installing it down the road.
