EDIT – 16 April 2011:
- Because of how old these mods are, I'm no longer updating them. They're all over two years old and they've had their time. When I work on mods again, I won't be including any fixes or updates for these. If anyone wants to do so, feel free – just give me credit for the original mod and email me ([email protected]) with a link. I'll be sure to link to your update on the original mod.

UPDATE: I found the problem that was causing Augusta to sell the staffs instead of Liette. The problem should be fixed now. IF YOU DOWNLOADED THE PREVIOUS VERSION, REDOWNLOAD THE NEW FILES. Just overwrite all the files.

There are now TWO .rar files up, each with a different .esp. The Rinzei_CrystalStaffv1_1 has the enchanted staffs. The Rinzei_CrystalStaff_Unenchantedv1_1 has both enchanted AND unenchanted version of the staffs.

A set of five staffs, adorned with antique metal and large crystals.
Three of the staffs are enchanted with Destruction magic,
the fourth being enchanted with both Destruction and Mysticism,
the fifth being enchanted with Restoration magic.
The Destruction staffs have two enchantments,
whereas the other two have three.

The staffs can be bought by a Bosmer woman named Liette,
located in the Tiber Septim Hotel in the Talos Plaza District of the Imperial City.

This is my first mod, so I hope you enjoy it and there's nothing too wrong with it.
It was my first time in two years doing 3D modelling, my first time ever doing UVMapping,
and my first time using all the intricacies of the CS.

First off, if anyone delves into the folders, I apologize,
as the staffs are listed in the Weapons folders.
That was a mistake that I didn't notice until wrapping the mod up.
The mod uses custom models and custom hi-res textures.

The five staffs are:
- Crystal Staff of Magicka (This is the original staff)
- Crystal Staff of Fire
- Crystal Staff of Frost
- Crystal Staff of Shock
- Crystal Staff of Restoration

1. Extract the files to a temporary location.
2. Examine the folder structure and make corrections where necessary.
3. Copy files to (install folder)\Oblivion\Data\
4. Start Oblivion Launcher, click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the .esp file(s).

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod.


May conflict with any mods that alter the Tiber Septim Hotel.
