Description:
Allows you to teach spells to followers by giving them spell tomes. Once taught, you can have followers forget spells by giving them the spell tome again.


How to teach a spell to a follower:
  • Talk to a follower and select the Give Spell Tome option.
  • Select the Teach spell option.
  • Give the follower a spell tome and they will learn the spell if they don't already know it.
  • The spell tome will be "destroyed" when the follower learns the spell.

How to make a follower forget a spell:
  • Talk to a follower and select the Give Spell Tome option.
  • Select the Forget spell option.
  • Give the follower a spell tome and they will forget the spell if they already know it.
  • The spell tome will NOT be "destroyed" when the follower forgets the spell, and will be returned to the player.




Requirements:



Versions:
Full:
  • Includes a MCM that allows you to see which spells you have taught to a follower through spell tomes.
  • To view the learned spells, simply move your in-game crosshair over a follower then go to the MCM and view the list of spells they've learned.
Light:
  • Does NOT include a MCM. You will have to remember the spells you taught to each follower.



Questions:
Q: Will this work with spells from mods?
A: Yes.

Q: Does this conflict with other mods?
A: No. No original records were altered. This mod is compatible with everything.

Q: Do I have to have SKSE64?
A: Yes. The mod will not work without it.

Q: I taught spells to a follower but they won't use them. Why?
A: There are several reasons why.
  1. Your follower doesn't have enough magicka to cast the spell.
  2. Your follower doesn't have high enough skill in that school of magic to cast the spell. (Example: Followers need a skill of 50 in destruction to cast Fireball)
  3. The AI of your follower doesn't see the spell as useful in combat.

Q: Will this work for custom followers or followers that don't use the normal follower system?
A: Yes, it should.

Q: Why does the option appear for NPCs that temporarily follow me during certain quests?
A: So the option appears for followers that don't use the normal follower system. There's not much I can do to avoid this.
