A player Home.
3 New dungeons.

The maze of Labyrinthian was revisited, a new boss was made and some new foes and traps were settled to give it a "magical" appearance instead of the abandoned building you find in vanilla.



How to start
To begin the first quest simply go to the maze of labyrinthian. I recommend you to be at least level 30 ish the bosses will be at least level 40 and will scale with your level up to very high levels (the highest is 110).

HOW TO GET THE SPELLS AND ITEMS:
Once you have completed the quest you will receive for free the dimensional realm spell and Time shift spell so you can get in and out the realm of the Glamoril and collect Life Time from foes killed by Time Shift. In one of the isles there's a magic circle called "Glamoril Forge" beside you will find two fountains, the left one can be used to access the new perk trees and the right one you can use it to exchange Life Time for Glamoril Fragments, use those fragments in the Glamoril forge to craft the new spells and Items of the mod, some items have to be unlocked by perks before you can craft them.

Some other spells like Wither or Chrono Trap would be better to farm more life time so try to prioritize them but there's lots of combinations with the spells in order to collect more life time from targets.
Tip 01: you can stack the Wither effect multiple times on the same foe increasing the damage caused, if the target dies with multiple effects stacked on it will give you 3 years for each stacked effect.
Tip 02: You can combine different spells for maximum effects, for example if you stop time you can concatenate more than just 10 Wither effects before finishing it with a chrono trap, a Time Shift a Chrono Mantle effect a Time Construct near the target and a Zero Sum so you can store from a single target with enough life crazy amounts of years the best I was able to get was 400ish
Tip 03: There's multiple combinations with the effects, for example you can cast Wither two or three times over a target and then freeze it with Chrono Stasis so they slowly get damaged over time while being imprisoned and you can handle different foes.
Tip 04: You can use rewind to revive a target and then keep farming Life Time from him, think of a target you reaaaaaaly hate, let's say Nazeem since everyone hates him, Trap him with Dimensional Prison, go to your Glamoril Arena, drop him inside, kill him with multiple wither effects, revive him with rewind, repeat the process until your soul is satisfied with the result.





The first main boss you will encounter is Ogrim.

A named dremora in the labyrinthian maze. This new dremora is stronger and has more health it will also spawn lvled atronachs to help him in battle (if you have mods installed that change the spawns there's a chance to spawn those atronachs, the same goes for the random encounters inside the maze) He wears the new version of the diadem of the savant


The second is the draugr overlords.
They are 3 old draugr each resistant to a specific destruction type of magic, fire, frost and shock overlords. The battle is pretty much straight forward you just have to kill them. The fire overlord is weak against frost, the frost overlord is weak against fire and the storm overlord is weak against nothing, once you defeat the three of them all the other draugr will die though I recommend you to kill some of the minions in each wave in order to not be overruned.


The third one is the ebony golem.

The fight is pretty simple, just beat him to death he's just a health pool and will behave as a giant. You can easily play with the different heights of the room in order to kill him very easily.


The forth one is the council.
They behave like hagravens, you don't have to defeat them in order to continue so you can just sneak and leave the room but if you decide to fight them be aware they will use a lot of fireballs and you will probably get hit as soon as you enter the chamber so fire or magic resistance is very recommended for this boss fight, the chamber is very big and with different heights you can play with the debris to not get overrun by all the fireballs. The chest in the center contains the shalidor's crown.


The fifth one is Master Loddmund.
This mage intended to be hard to beat he will behave as a dragon priest and will use a lot of potent fire spells (he has incineration and fireball along with wards, ebony armor and flame cloak). He also will deflect by default 50% of all damage you make to him and will have a poll of 1k to 5k of health so be warned and prepare yourself. The best way to counter him as any mage is to deplete him from their magicka poll so either use the staff of magnus or shock spells to drain his magicka. He will fase 3 times, each one teleporting to the top of the room shielding himself against any damage (he will keep firing spells from above) and summon 3 potent atronachs which you have to defeat in order to make him vulnerable again, when you defeat the atronachs he will teleport back to the center of the room and will be stunned for a few seconds unable to cast and with no resistance against any damage so be as quick as you can to beat him in this state.


The sixth one will be Sheogorath.
Sheo will not fight but will summon random minions which you will have to defeat. The minions will be hostile to you and sometimes to each other (he's here for the lolz). The worst case scenario you will have to fight only against enemies (defeat the mimics because they will have a lot of rewards in them). Foes may vary A LOT, and when i say it is for a reason there's a poll of 30 different types of enemies that may spawn in this battle but most of them will be from this mod.
The only 4 important characters you have to defeat in order to proceed with the next wave are:
Gozaru: a named scamp with dremora armor he will fire fireballs or use a staff, he behaves like a falmer
An order priest of jyggalag: which will use shock spells.
Shalidor: which will use any kind of spell and wear a random powerful destruction staff
Vivec: which will use a wide variety of spells and wear a random powerful staff



Walkthrough:
Watch the walkthrough made by my friends from System of Gaming if you have any doubts.



About compatibility:
The mod should be compatible with anything but mods that changes the labyrinthian maze, those were the only vanilla records i've touched the rest is entirely new.

Incompatible mods:
Shalidor's Migrant Portals

If you want to play with incompatible mods but have the powers of the Glamoril I provide you below a link to a stand alone version which contains only the powers.

The mod has been cleaned from the usual errors of the CK and with TES Edit.

What if I completed the labyrinthian maze early in my playthrough?: Even though I recommend you to have a clean save from the maze i included in the patch 1.0.3 a function which resets the maze if it needs to, the function triggers in the corridor at the entrance, be aware if you use "coc MazeEntrance" the function may not trigger.


If you prefer a lite version and only get the spells please visit the old Glamoril page which has been updated in 1.0.2 version of this mod:

I wanted to tell a story, but it seems I'm very bad at it. So I'll write it down here.
I've been approached by a player in my personal inbox and I've read comments like "why does chim spell does this" or "what actually does chim", ok so first I'll state the problem here.
Chim is a very abstract and weird concept made to fit a narrative with multiple endings into one single world it's really hard to create a single power that represents what breaking space-time continuum really is thus I created an entire mod with space-time continuum themed powers to represent it also I wanted to tell a story but with a very subtle narrative that I'll explain below.

In essence the whole theme of Glamoril is precisely an enlightenment, so you're achieving Chim for a second time, because lorewise it's strongly probable that we as dragonborns achieved Chim in the peak of the throat of the world when you use the scroll and defeat the world eater thus all the outcomes of the guilds of skyrim are 100% cannon like it happened in daggerfall.
