Dwemerverse - Dwarven Magic Package

Because Dwemer are nice people.

Dwemerverse contains 33 brand new Dwemer themed Alteration spells, 30 Staves, 12 Dwemer Stones, several pieces of lost Dwemer technology and a unique crafting mechanic to acquire the above goodies. All of the content features custom visuals and scripted effects, from personal levitation to missile strikes.

In keeping with the theme of Alteration, the spells revolve mainly around utility, but there are enough damaging spells to make a Dwemer Scientist a viable main build.

Fully compatible!

Technology of the Dwemer

Staves and Dwemer Stones
Dwemer technology exists mainly in two forms: Staves are wielded to cast active spells, and Dwemer Stones are equipped in the necklace slot and provide passive bonuses.

Calcelmo (the resident Dwemer expert in Markarth) sells schematics, which are used to craft Staves and Dwemer Stones at a forge. Purchasing schematics for higher level items requires a higher Alteration skill level. The most advanced schematics require the completion of the Alteration Ritual Spell quest at the College of Winterhold.

Transcripts and Bionics
Tired of lugging heavy equipment around? With sufficient skill, you can reverse engineer crafted Dwemer technology and memorise the spells.

Upon reaching a certain skill level in Alteration and being in possession of the right Staff or Dwemer Stone, a new crafting option appears at a forge, enabling you to convert the item into a Transcript device (for Staves) or Bionics device (for Dwemer Stones). Using this object destroys it and permanently grants the spell or effect to your character. Not all spells and effects can be learned.

Note that some spells acquired in this manner may have different or additional functionality...

Dwemer automatons may drop new loot. This loot can be smelted into Dwarven Metal Ingots, but it may be wise to keep a supply on hand because Transcripts and Bionics require Dwemer Precision Tools, which are crafted from specific pieces of scrap.

Compatibility notes
  • No known compatibility issues.
  • If you are using mods that affect spell scaling or difficulty and the Dwemerverse spells deal too much or too little damage, open the console and type set AC1_AlterationScalingPctGlobal to [value], the default being 1.0, then close the console and wait 10 seconds.
  • Modifies Calcelmo's vendor chest.

My area effect spells miss enemies!
Explosions in Skyrim originate from a single point and hit all targets within line of sight. This means terrain and other targets can shield them from the blast. Due to how annoying this mechanic is, spells learned from Transcripts have a flag set that makes them ignore the line of sight check and just hit everything. This flag does not exist for spells granted by Staves. You just have to deal with it until you acquire the Transcript.

Calcelmo does not sell the schematics!
Wait 48 hours for his inventory to restock. Also make sure you meet the requirements - Master level Schematics require the completion of the Alteration Ritual Spell quest. Also, each next higher level requires a restock as well.

Where is Calcelmo?
Understone Keep, Markarth.

I crash when I scroll fast through the list of recipes.
Don't scroll fast. The game doesn't like having to load a zillion things at the same time, especially reflective things. Slow down or skip some of them (or educe the load on your game by getting rid of some heavy mods).
