Skyrim Build: Bonelord of Worms

Race: Breaton
Class: Mage
How he works: 
1 - Uses Curses, Diseases, and Void Magic to kill enemies -- no weapons unless a certain effect is required.
2 - Skins enemies for their bones.
3 - Animates the bones to fight for him.
4 - Will eventually do the Undeath quest line and gain a Lich transformation, Lich is instead of Vampire or Werewolf. Must take the Dawnguard side during Dawnguard as being a Lich Vampire is buggy as all hell, which one is overwriting the other will flip-flop causing a broken experience.

Required Overhaul:

  • Perkus Maximus - for the Bone wing of the Conjuration Tree, as well as the Death Side of Restoration. 
    • There are plenty of other good overhauls for Necromancy such as REQUIEM combined with Corpse Perpetration, however for the BONELORD there is no better overhaul. 
    • Also be sure to pick up the "TRUE-Lockpicking" fix on the same page.
  • Compatibility Patches look over the list carefully. 
    • Make sure check Forgotten Magic Redone and ANY others being used.
    • If you use the Community Uncapper, having that Uncapper INI checked is REQUIRED.
Required Spells and Powers:
  • Forgotten Magic: Redone - The Foundation for all of the starting powers the Bonelord has, this will allow his Void, death, curse, and disease magics to level up with him.
    • Make sure to on the Compatibility Patches for PERMA, select the Forgotten Magic checkbox.
  • Apocalypse Magic of Skyrim All kinds of summoning, curses, and other things that you WILL be getting later come from this.
    • Make sure to pick up the PERMA Patch on the download page.
Required Adventure Mods:
  • Alternate Start - Live Another Life - Gives you the "Necromancer" start, which will give you a small playerhome inside BLACKREACH. Recommended you start on a low difficulty until you get out of there.
  • Undeath - This adds hours of Necromancy to your game, including 2 lairs, "The Broker" who is a necromancy vendor for you, and a questline that if done properly will give you the Lich transformation that you will use instead of Vampire Lord or Werewolf.
    • If you become a Werewolf or Vampire, transforming back into your "true form" which is the Lich transformation will cure you of these afflictions.
      • For that reason you should side with the Dawnguard.
      • For that reason if you want to do the Companions, you should do it BEFORE gaining this form.
    • Making the "wrong" choices during the questline may prevent you from becoming a Lich.
      • Performing the ritual wrong will outright kill you.
    • If your playing a good character, this mod is still HIGHLY recommended as you can kill "The Broker", purge the Necromancer's Lairs, and destory the Coven's evil magics once and for all.
