Midas Magic by xilverbulet and Midas Magic Evolved by DaRealSlenderMan combined add over 130 new spells to Skyrim. They have plenty of devastating elemental spells, such as Mass Lightning Storm, Molten Spray, and Call Meteor Rain, but it’s the weird and unusual that really makes the Midas collection worth owning. Want to freeze time or summon an unlimited number of conjured followers? Done. Been running through the forest for several hours with no end in sight? Why not summon a player house and take a little nap?
