Modders have put an awful lot of effort into making sure Skyrim has continually evolved and expanded in the years since it was first released into the world.

Many have focused on changing the game by adding unique characters, picturesque player homes and friendly goat couriers to it, with a few even going as far as giving your Dragonborn the chance to have an incredibly immersive brawl or try not to be driven mad by a cursed sword.

If you’re someone who loves to play as a powerful mage that deals damage using spectacular spells, but often find yourself disappointed by the staves and scrolls the vanilla game has on offer, a new mod might be worth adding to your load order.

Ever wanted to create your own magical scrolls in Skyrim?

The mod in question is called ‘Sorcerer - A Staff and Scroll Overhaul’, and is the latest work of modders SimonMagus616, DeltaRider and ElectricSparx. The former two have previously teamed up to add an upgrade system for dragon shouts to Skyrim.

This time, however, they’ve decided to create an add-on for their massively popular mod ‘Mysticism - A Magic Overhaul’ that aims to create more potential for interesting magical builds that make heavy use of enchanted scrolls and staves, neither of which the modders suggest are “fleshed out” enough in the vanilla game.

So, in order to make them more attractive options, the mod adds two new crafting stations to the game. The first of these is a “scroll enchanter” which allows you to craft your own custom scrolls using specially prepared paper, enchanted ink and some knowledge gained from deconstructing other scrolls, something you can’t do at any point in the vanilla game.

Meanwhile, the second station is a new variant of the Dragonborn DLC’s staff enchanter, which “allows the player to create staves with soul gems instead of heart stones,” giving you the chance to create a custom staff without having to take a trip to Solstheim.


These new enchanters can be found in just a few in-game locations each, the majority of which are within the College of Winterhold, giving you an additional incentive to join up with them, though you can also access them via Valerica's Study from the Dawnguard DLC, which is useful if you want to retain your factional independence.

Regardless of whether you’re now neatly scrawling a nasty hex across the finest vellum you could find, make sure to follow us for updates on Starfield, The Elder Scrolls 6 and the interesting world of Bethesda game modding, including our top mods of the month.
