Introducing Dark Lore Grimoire

Dark Lore Grimoire is part of my Skyrim Upgrade and represents a massive upgrade to the Skyrim Mage Game. Not only does it take all the default spells and unlock them according to your magic skills in each school instead of your character level, which does not care if your a mage or not, but it adds various magic guilds and orders to the game and revamps the College of Winterhold too. With this mod installed, Solitude will be one of your favourite towns in Skyrim.... instead of the least visited.

As of V3 you have.

54 quests.
235 unique NPCS (New bad guys use DLG Spells now).
1215 lines of dialog.

Including in the mod.

The College of Winterhold updates
Order of the Black Worm
House Telvanni
Solitude Mages Guild
New Skill based Spell System (does not edit the default spells)
Spell upgrade system based on your knowledge of a spell.


This mod does not edit or change the default spells, this is to avoid compatibility issues with other mods.

Unsupported tools.

TES5Edit, BOSS, Skyrim ReProccer and MOD List patches such as the old Wrye Bash (and similar programs) are known to cause random unsolvable issues in mods like mine when used by players, tool makers and patch makers and other inexperienced people, so are NOT supported here. If you use them, you are going to have problems, that is your choice, I cannot help you, nor can I fix mods that have been damaged that way so do not bother asking for help, you are on your own.

Compatibility issues:

This mod should work fine with most College mods except those that edit the main tower of the College of Winterhold or re-navmesh around the main tower.

It is known to conflict with my other College mod, the Wizards of Winterhold which is now mostly obselete and replaced by DLG anyway.

All the Dark Lore Spells are unique to this mod, they are copies of the original spells rather than edits of the original spells so cannot conflict with anything.

Mods that edit default spells and break them, may break the default scripts used by my copies of the spells and this may break my spells too.

Also Solitude is edited by this mod to add some new guilds and orders to the town. This edit is restricted to one side of Solitude where the new Guilds can be found. The navmeshes at those locations have been edited so NPCs can enter and leave the Guilds. Which is very important for a quest mod and should NOT be over ridden.

hello , first of all i would like to thank you for making this mod. Specially i like blackworm guild. This mod is great. If you will add future content i would ask if you could add quest to resurrect potema, it would be great to have her as companion. And to meet Mannimarco also to have him as companion.

Will you port any of your mods to Special Edition?

I did but the SE version broke key trigger features so they where withdrawn. Since I stopped modding, i did not want to spend years fixing bugs beths own patches where creating.

Sorry, i didn't see "Dark Lore Grimoire SE", i assume SE stands for Special Edition?
But what does "Broken by SE, Avoid" mean? Does it work or not?

Its best not to mix DLG with other mods that edit the college of winterhold. They can break the college quests or hide library books behind their own bookshelves.

So if I disable other mods it will work?

The Skyrim SE version of this mod has been updated to address a crash when entering certain buildings that some (not all) users where experiencing. No version change because the mod has not actually been changed, just resaved in the editor. I know... weird but it works.
