See here for a list of (in)compatible mods.


  • Can NPCs use these spells: Unfortunately, modifying a large number of NPCs to use the new spells would cause unacceptable compatibility issues. The solution is ASIS, a tool that goes through your load order and generates a mod file that adds spells from each mod to each individual NPC. Apocalypse is compatible with ASIS, but not out of the box: see the compatibility article.
