Script Effect

Executes a script when the effect is applied and removed, and every frame while it is active. This effect is only used on very specific items, where the desired effect cannot be achieved through standard spell effects alone. This effect itself cannot be gained for spell making, enchanting, or alchemy. It is, however, possible to create special effect potions and poisons that have individual script effects from the ingredients used to create them.
