The spells in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim generally make sense for their respective schools of magic, but Illusion goes above mere trickery into the realm of outright mind control. Destruction spells are variations of fire, frost and shock; healing and repelling undead fall under Restoration; and atronachs are more easily summoned through perks in the Conjuration school. But Illusion spells are something beyond what their simple name seems to imply.
Experience this amazing expansion of the illusion magic discipline. They'll allow a mage to rely on illusion a lot more instead of dabbing into other schools all the time. Become the ultimate illusionist, today!

The magics of the Magna-ge are a series of 18 end-game spells, all lore-appropriate in the world of Skyrim, divided between two subtypes: luminous and tenebrous. With EnaiSiaion's port, these spells have improved visuals, scripting, and usability.
As the name might give away, Chronomancy is a set of 30 spells, all of them in the alteration school, focused on time manipulation. It is not particularly a type of magic the vanilla Skyrim attempts to address, thus making this mod essential for alteration-based playthroughs.
Apocalypse is the most popular Skyrim spell pack, adding 155 new spells that are unique, balanced, lore friendly, use high quality custom visuals and blend seamlessly into the vanilla magic system. Also includes scrolls and staves for the new spell
