Skyrim Anniversary Edition.

*Special Edition (Including an ALL DLC requirements) is still available in older files, but no longer supported.

ADDING separate files for Voice files and Facemesh, hopefully helping people fix that damn packaging issue once and for all (in a terrible workaround). Sorry that I suck at packaging mods, and hopefully that helps. Instructions in files details.

With this MOD, joining the College grants you access to their newly opened Guild Halls in various Holds, with more trainers, merchants, spells and training facilities. Read about the creation of each Halls and learn about the research that led to the discovery of new spells. 


- 6 new custom Guild Halls for the College of Winterhold, following their Holds lore. Each has its own specialized school of magic. 
- New lore-friendly spells spread across 5 schools, tested and working.
- Must be a member of the College for access to beds and supplies, anyone can visit. Thieves are NOT welcome... 
- Citizen Mage plugin available, to add in wandering mages near the colleges. In optional files.

New travelling Mages roam the roads of Skyrim, out on College business. Studying, working on deliveries for the new Guild Hall, visiting merchants and relaxing at taverns. While they're busy on College Duty and won't have much to say to you, they will assist any College member should danger arise... And danger is on its way...  *Not recommended for play without ICMF.

Citizen Mages adds a dozen of NPCs in guild halls and patrolling on the roads.

The new spells, coming back from the 2nd and 3rd era, for each school added:

- Conjure Bear (Conjuration)
- Conjure Sabrecat
- Conjure Spriggan (Conjuration)
- Conjure Skeletal Mage (Conjuration)
- Cure Disease (Restoration)
- Ice Volley (Destruction)
- Fade Other (Illusion)
- Night Eye (Illusion)
- Eyes of Eventide (Illusion)
- Charm (Illusion)
- Buoyancy (Alteration)
- Feather (Alteration)
- Pack Mule (Alteration)
- New spell: Artic Blast (Restoration)

All spells have been tested and work as intended.

My other mods:

College Grounds
Western Watchtower Hamlet
Unique Housecarls


- Adding the True Nords Faction as an optionable "DLC" to the mod: a Faction of Nord enemies to the College, with an unmarked quest to deal with their leader. (Looking for partnership to get this and quests done right, without bugs or issues.)

Update Released on May 6th (3.5.5) - REQUIRES AE

- Added functional fish tanks in the Halls of Falkreath and Riften. (Adding fishes while not a college member is "theft", weirdly...)

- Added some rare curios ingredients in the Halls

Update to SSE V2.0 (Dec. 31, 2016):

- Aranthil now has more conversation options, including clues about the schools location or their specifications, on occasion.
