Welcome to the awakening of magic in Skyrim. The next evolution begins now.

Phenderix Magic World is the largest, most comprehensive magic mod available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. The new features added by this mod will completely enhance your gameplay experience and unleash hundreds of new roleplaying and character options. This mod is designed for all types of characters, not just mages. Also - cool fact - it's compatible with virtually every mod made for Skyrim and should contain no major bugs or issues as it has been tested for years.


New Content Added by The Magical World of Manantis:
MANANTIS WORLDSPACE (hours of exploration)
160+ SPELLS (new elements and spell types)
ELEMENTAL COMBINATION & INTERACTION SYSTEM
ENCHANTED WEAPONS, ARTIFACTS, & STAFFS
ELEMENTAL FIST WEAPONS
CUSTOM FOLLOWERS
BOSS ENCOUNTERS
PLAYER HOME
15 QUESTS
AND MUCH MORE!



This mod adds a new world called Manantis, but the player is not forced to visit the new world in order to obtain most of the content added by this mod. Most content added by this mod can be purchased from select vendors across Skyrim. Therefore, visiting the new world of Manantis is an optional experience.


HOW TO GET TO THE NEW WORLD?
Upon starting Skyrim with this mod installed, the player will be given a teleport spell that can take them to Manantis. 
Cast the teleport spell a second time to return to wherever you last were in Tamriel.

WHERE TO FIND NEW ADDED CONTENT?
Most content can be purchased from vendors in Manantis and Skyrim. A small amount of content can only be looted from bosses found in Manantis or obtained through a quest found in Manantis. Visiting the new locations in Manantis is an optional experience. You do not have to go to the new land to obtain most of the content added by this mod.

Most content added by Magic World can be purchased from a new vendor in Whiterun's Dragonsreach, Solitude's Blue Palace, Markarth's Understone Keep, Riften's Mistveil Keep, Winterhold College's Arcanaeum, and Windhelm's Palace of the Kings. (and of course from a plethora of vendors in Manantis)

The level of the player's magic skills determines what spell tomes are available to purchase from vendors. For instance, to purchase a master level destruction spell tome from a vendor, the player must have their destruction skill at the master level.

There is also a "Cheat Chest" in Farengar's room in Dragonsreach which contains most of the spell tomes and weapons added by Magic World. A small amount of content must still be obtained from bosses found in Manantis or obtained through a quest found in Manantis.

This mod does not edit leveled lists, meaning you will not be able to buy spell tomes from random vendors across Skyrim. This has been done to enhance compatibility with other magic mods. You can only buy spell tomes from vendors in Manantis and from vendors in the Skyrim locations noted above.


This mod adds an entire worldspace complete with new locations, shops, followers, NPCs, boss encounters, quests, and purchasable items!

MANANTIS - a completely new worldspace with a magical town and more locations to explore! (hours of exploration await you)
How to get there? Teleport spell automatically added upon installing this mod. The teleport spell will initially take the caster to Manantis. On the second cast, it will take the caster to wherever they were before traveling to Manantis. (works similar to teleport mark and recall) The cycle will then start over.

Sample of Locations found in Manantis: 
Manantis Town - a large town with inns, shops, student dormitories, a player house, a stable, and more
The School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - a college teeming with students and professors (classrooms, dorms, libraries and more)
Elesma - shopping district and outdoor environmental area, many specialty shops for you to check out
Sophitia Isle - an outdoor arena-like challenge area (a new way to earn gold!)
The Wall - A fortified outpost where guards try their best to protect the city of Manantis
Wildlands - a region that is unprotected by the guards of Manantis - who knows what you will find
Northern Wildlands - a land where death lingers and life falters
The Forbidden Forest - a forest containing many creatures that will definitely bite
Camp Troy - a fortified outpost of guards defending Manantis town
Azkalin Prison - a dungeon containing many terrifying apparitions and maybe a prisoner


This mod adds 160+ new and unique spells to the game along with an elemental interaction system.

LEGENDARY ARTIFACTS
This mod adds a variety of new magical artifacts, legendary weapons, staves, and items to the game.
Spoiler:  
Show



This mod currently adds 15 new quests for the player to complete.
Spoiler:  
Show


There is a rudimentary popularity/favor system. This system will be further fleshed out in future updates. The goal is to have certain quests provide favor and make your house more popular on-campus and around Manantis. This could lead to unique dialogue choices, unique ways to end quests, and unique rewards. I will hopefully build onto this and develop an interesting framework for players to experience.

There is a rudimentary house point system. This system will be further fleshed out in future updates. My intention with the house point system is to have quests give points to the player's house upon their completion. Doing certain quests or tasks for college professors and other important NPCs will generate points for the player's house. Total points for every house can be viewed by interacting with the house banners in the college's main hall. As of now, there are no quests that give house points but this will be expanded in future updates.

To gain house points or favor you must first complete The Sorting Hat quest to become a student at the college.
