Black Mage Armor is a standalone armor mod that includes Cloth, Light, and Heavy armor sets that are all craftable, enchantable, and upgradable; all sets can be used by males, females, and beast races. Upon installing or updating, the Black Mage Focusing Gem will automatically be added to your inventory. The Gem allows you to see Black Mage Armor crafting recipes in your blacksmithing window; remove the Gem and you will no longer see the recipes. There is a Cloth/Light Set under the Leather section, a Light/Heavy Set under the Steel section, and a Light/Heavy Set under the Ebony section. None of the sets require any blacksmithing perks to craft; however, they still receive a tempering bonus if you have a set's respective blacksmithing perk. Black Archmage Armor will become available for you to craft as soon as you've become the Archmage of Winterhold. Pre-echanted versions of the Black Archmage Armor can be obtained from a locked chest in the Archmage's Quarters. There is only one version of the Black Mage Mask; it is Cloth, uses its own armor slot, can be worn with all hoods, and is under the leather section.

Things You Should Know
1. If you have a beard, it will clip through your mask. Not possible to fix this conventionally through the CK. Might be possible to fix with SKSE and scripts?

2. Perk requirements were removed as to not force you to take up smithing to craft the gear. If this makes it too easy for you to obtain the armor, you can just craft it whenever you feel you've reached a perk that makes sense.

3. Black Mage Armor will never have different colors. If I were to make more colors I would make a completely new mod.

4. To add any piece of armor or the focusing gem to your inventory: open the console with ~, type Help "Black Mage" or Help "Black Archmage" to get the ItemID, type Player.AddItem ItemID 1 to add it. Any word can be added inside the quotation marks to refine your search and you can scroll through any results with Page Up/Page Down.

5. This is the Final Version because I feel like I've finished everything I wanted to. Obviously, if there are any major bugs or problems I'll still update to fix them.
