Spell Tomes DLC

Introducing "spell tomes" - a new group of items that modify your signs when equipped in the trophy slot. The game data for the items, effects, and loot entries are added through the DLC folder for compatibility with other mods.

Check out the images tab to see the item descriptions and a few gifs demonstrating new spells.

You will find tomes in select shops throughout the game. They also appear in specific loot locations throughout the entire game beginning as early as White Orchard. Starting at character level 10, they are integrated into random loot as high-quality rare treasure. If you simply wish to begin using them immediately, you can can use the console command "addalltomes" (as of 1.2), or add them through the additem console command (see the "posts" tab for the item names).

All tome spells have associated visual and/or audio effects when they are cast or in use.

Installation:
- The archive contains a \DLC folder and a \mods folder - place the contents from each folder in the corresponding folder of your Witcher 3 installation.
- Build a merged script patch if necessary.

Un-Installation:
- Out of an abundance of caution, make a game save after removing all tomes from your inventory and clearing all tomes effects from your character. (Probably not really necessary, but better safe)
- Remove both the dlcTomes and modTomes folders from your game installation.
- Rebuild your merged script patch if necessary.

Compatibility:
The game data is completely new and added through the DLC system, making it compatible with all other mods. The scripts may need to be merged depending on your current mod list, and normal compatibility issues may arise if you are using mods that alter signs, skills, or other aspects of gameplay.
